LEFT HOOK: CORPORATOCRACY

November 29, 2010 (San Diego) --According to a recent CNN report, the number of billionaires in this world had nearly tripled since 2000. With Americans losing their homes in record numbers and the Seventh Fleet headed to waters off the coast of Korea, catastrophe is in the air. Our gridlocked government is unable to respond effectively to the needs of Americans.

 

Conservatives say “spending must be cut to balance the budget” without mentioning the fact that this country will never be out of debt as long as there is a Federal Reserve Central banking system, where each dollar is issued in debt.

 

Schools are closing and public safety departments are cutting back due to lack of funds. Yet, the military industrial complex operates and spends with no end in sight. The ruling class benefits from war. America, as the world’s police force, exports war and weaponry. War fronts seem to be springing up all over the globe from Korea, to Iran; to Afghanistan and beyond.

 

A small number of people control the U.S. government with their lobbying and Ponzi Schemes. The corporate elite, the ruling class or..Corporatocracy must be gleefully counting their profits as Americans rush out to spend money they do not have on holiday shopping. The treasonous corporate system of this country has shipped the jobs of Black and Decker and Hewlitt Packard to China, a communist country. China now has 130 billionaires, second only to the United States’ 403. Russia, another communist country has nearly 70; more than any other European country.

 

The reason that democracy does not work in this country is because the wealthy can pay for what they want and control politicians. The reason that capitalism does not work is corporations are more loyal to their wealthy stock holders than the American workers that propel them to success. The workers are not rewarded for success with higher wages and steady employment. They are laid off, have benefits slashed and do not earn a living wage. Many have their retirements taken away just as they become eligible.

 

Now, American youth are asked to fight war after false flag war, generated for imperial mobilization and to line the pockets of bankers and arms manufacturers. They think that they are fighting for freedom and justice. It is a wonder when one sees vets sleeping on the street; the VA is under funded and staffed. Active duty servicemen are standing in line for donations of turkeys and food to survive. This is a national shame.

 

Keep your eyes on the gas prices. They WILL rise, some predict as high as eight dollars per gallon. The Corporatocracy has an agenda to destroy the American middle class and increase the numbers of the wealthy. As the gas prices rise, there will be more unemployment as prices go up. An energy war is on the horizon, with China being the principal competitor with the United States. Keep this in mind as the Seventh Fleet sails in Korean waters.

 

The American people have been betrayed by their government, corporate leadership and clergy. The result is diminished liberty, rising poverty, debt enslavement, war and denial of the pursuit of happiness as guaranteed by the founding documents of this country.
