It has been said here before, about every four years, but, again,
We're not going to vote our way out of this mess.
It will, in fact, take a Tyrrant-King to extract us from the current predicament.
The problem with Right Wing and Left Wing paradigms is that right and left wings are, by definition, attached to the same animal.
That animal is the problem. That it may soar left for a while, then right for a while, does nothing to alter the nature of the beast itself or its ultimate trajectory. It is the problem, not its slightly alternating flight course…into the sun.
Democracy and Republics are the creatures of merchants and bankers. Which is why the ultimate expression of voting is choosing between Pizza Hut or McDonalds.
"We the people" or "power to the people"....same BS.
Consumer and Voter are the same thing. Which is why Open Borders are considered the natural gravity of history to the Western Elite, which is made up of CEO's and Bankers. In Wal-Mart we Trust! What time is the game? News headlines of the day: Number one at the box office this week was...etc, ad infintium.
And, sorry, but, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were the George Soros and Bill Gates of their day.
When "the people" become the standard, the standard drops. This is how you go from Mozart to MTV.
If and when the Tyrrant-King shows up, he won't try to tame the beast and steer it, he'll simply slay it. How that will happen and when it will take place is anybody's guess. Within the next 50 to 75 years, I would think.
The Tyrrant-King won't campaign for votes or present arguments to make a case, he'll simply march towards victory and all others will either fall in line or be crushed.
And as the saying goes, he might be a mean, cruel son-of-a-bitch, but he'll be our son-of-a-bitch.
