Can The Egyptian Revolution Be Enacted in the USA? Is There an Alternative to Palin & Gingrich?
The Peoples Voice ^ | February 17, 2011 | Ziad Shaker elJishi

Posted on 02/17/2011 5:55:44 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

I was asked today how America was going to be under Sarah Palin and what I thought a good alternative to her would be?

America under Palin (or Newt Gingrich for that matter) will be a very ugly place especially for the 80% of the population of Americans who are removed from wealth with a large group of which are of poverty line status or below the poverty line. These constitute the majority of Americans who lie outside the 20% who control wealth and political power in the USA today and who in turn will pay the heaviest and dearest of price for Palin's election. Domestically we would anticipate under Palin that these marginalized groups would suffer tremendously. Groups of the new immigrants, poor White, Black, Latino and others, the poor elderly, the sick, the disabled, the far-removed from wealth and political power would be pushed further into debt, a life-style of consumerism which leads to obesity, more poverty, family breakups, a break-down in moral values, drug-abuse, crime, a life-style seeking instant gratification and constant entertainment, and sickness that leads to death will proliferate.

Violence and crimes will increase while state oppression under the guise of fighting terrorism will make it very difficult for people of Islamic or Arab descent to live freely in the USA. We would see fascistic measures enacted onto the so-called illegal immigrants much like what took place in the state of Arizona.

Under Palin, Reaganomics will be enacted. Here major cuts for the poor will lead to food-lines in the worst case and increased poverty in the best case scenario for the 80% of marginalized in American society. Corporations will do very good, the military will receive an enormous amount money, "israel" and other oppressive regimes will receive great aid-packages like the Mubarak regime did for 30 years, while health-care, quality education, and social services will be exclusive to the 20% who constitute the wealthy in the US and to the demise and loss of these services to the 80% majority of others; and finally many many more American soldiers will die.

Under Palin more wars will be waged under the guise of fighting terrorism. More homeland security abuses domestically will be enacted and more militarization and increased budgets for an imperialist foreign policy will be necessary to invade other nations under the excuse of keeping Americans safe-at-home. This will lead to retaliatory attacks against American citizens at home who will have to contend with another 9/11 type attack.

Maquiladoras border towns with Mexico will see increased activities ala NAFTA-style where exploitation of cheap Mexican labor is sought after minus the minimum guarantees for adequate wages, environmental protections, and labor-site safety which will be compromised. Under Palin profit will be more important than people. And people of poverty will pay the heaviest price.

The only real alternative has to be for the 80% of Americans to refuse this in the form of a popular revolt!

A revolt that mimics the footsteps taken by the Egyptian revolution. For such to succeed million men/women marches must come out and must be joined by the lower rank soldiers of America who are dying in Americas wars and nothing short of this critical mass of people has to mobilize across America and enable a true popular revolution from taking place. This revolution is a peaceful revolution which can quickly become violent if the oligarchy that governs the US today decides to mobilize the National Guard against it as it did in Ronald Reagan's time.

These popular marches must bring to an end the rule of the oligarchy that governs the US today and comprises of a minority 20% of the wealthy and their lobby groups who are serving corporate interests, the Zionists, the bankers, and media and Hollywood tycoons, the military generals, and the dynasties that govern the United States today and comprise of the likes of the Bush dynasty and Clinton dynasty.

Instead the popular masses need to demand that this oligarchy step-down from office. To leave power to a truly popular vote which necessitates we get rid of the two-party system of no choice! And to instill in its place a multi-party system of all political persuasions. From the right to the left. And here i am not talking about the Republican and Democratic parties as the right and left i am talking about a real right and left.

I am talking about a conservative party, liberal party, socialist party, nationalist party, religious parties (Islamic, Christian, and others), atheist party, green party.

These Egyptian style protestations will demand an end to the two-party system in the USA to be replaced by a mutli-party system and people Parliament where all political opinions are represented. To demand a popular president who is elected by popular vote and to get rid of the electoral-college which is to be replaced by a true popular voting system that enables participation of the 80% of Americans who largely are currently outside of the election process. In 2008 for example voter turn out was less than 57% which is considered high. Federal voter turnout historically can reach as low as 37% such as that took place in 2006 in non-presidential elections.

These protests must demand an end to the rule of the oligarchy in America, amendments to the US constitution subject to a public referendum to be decided on by the majority of the people, and re-structuring of the three branches of government where a people Parliament with multi-party representation takes place and popular free elections take place for a popular president.

That is the correct alternative and only choice available to the marginalized groups of Americans who constitute the majority in America today if a true and fundamental change is to affect their lives for the better.

So many cliches in such a short article. Just like Egypt where everybody lives on $2/month, although Premier Achmed will only allow that after taxes.

Shhhh, don’t tell anybody, but Ziad Shaker elJishi is actually a Mossad agent who is working to discredit the Palestinian cause by publishing idiotic rants such as this one.

No sane person could believe all of the foolish and paranoid and utterly false things that he claims to believe.

Nope, he is definitely writing this crap in the hope that people who read it will take it seriously and that they will therefore come to believe that all Palestinians are imbeciles like he appears to be. So far, his diabolical plan seems to be working well...

This is the Muslim Brotherhood’s political take on the American scene. “Egypt-style riots.” Say that as often as possible and pray to Allah that Americans go mullah commie like the brothas in Egypt.

It has already happened in the U.S. It is called "The Tea Party." The differences in execution can be traced to how educated, civilized people rebel, versus how ignorant cave-men do it. Egypt's rebellion was, nontheless, Egypt following the lead of the Americans and our Tea Party revolt.

Now, that is not to say that, if our pols convince us that we cannot accomplish our goals with peaceful protest and ballot activism that we won't pick up our means of last resort and blow them all straight to hell, because we will... but only if we have to.

It's just not our first choice, unlike the neanderthals in Egypt and throughout the Middle East.

Let's find the imbecile who wrote this and begin his badly needed re-education program... preferably with a nice water-boarding.

What an a**hole. On the site where this piece of sh*t originates (dedicated to "social justice issues") the article is headed with a photo of Palin superimposed over a photo of Hitler.

There should instead be a photo of the author superimposed over a photo of Rue Paul. Whatta fag.

“a life-style of consumerism which leads to obesity, more poverty, family breakups, a break-down in moral values, drug-abuse, crime, a life-style seeking instant gratification and constant entertainment, and sickness that leads to death will proliferate.”

So many jokes in the above, so little time. The whole thing is insanely funny. But I, for one, will not speak unkindly on someone with such mental problems.

I see the USA going to the left—reaching an almost USSR sort of state. then pitching right, into a Fascist State—more like Franco than Hitler but still a controlled nation. Good news, everyone will be working, streets will be safe, we all get cool uniforms and work on massive projects and monuments. maybe kick some butt too—go teach Mexico a little respect—And seize that Cuba Place just for the Leader’s new playground.
