"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

America Rising

Politicians are a class to themselves: they're global; they're viral and it's unsurprising that America has the same problem we do. Here's a powerful video via Opus #6 at MAinfo:

Opie also reveals that Obama has surreptitiously given diplomatic immunity to Interpol. It could tie in with this post from yesterday. Keep digging!
More great American blogs in the Kissin' Cousins sidebar.


  1. GV - it amazes me that the American right wing get away with characterizing Obama's policies as somehow socialist. He stacked his cabinet with Wall Street money men and gave away trillions to the rich.

    As far as I can see Obama is just more of the same - the rich fleecing the working man.

  2. I don't think left/right-wing means much in politics anymore S. Look at the EP where main parties label themselves Centre Right - but they're patently not. What they are is, as you say, governments for big business, more control, more taxes, more state. The division now comes down to authoritarianism -v- individualism/libertarianism. It was 'convenient' that the Republicans couldn't put forward a younger, stronger candidate than McCain and that Obama is so 'Blair-like'.
