7 steps of revolution– It appears to the sociologists and historians that we’ve met or exceeded all the criterion for r3volution at any price, even a violent one!
Be advised that this is an extremely left leaning article, and something that the Dems will try to take ‘credit’ for- though they’re one with the oligarchs that have been bringing about the demise of the country. Here are the 7 steps:
The first criterion is that of a soaring economy that then crashes. Serious contractions in the standard of living put people in a rotten mood.
Second: the class war, which has become so great that the distance between the rich and the poor is as great or greater than it was during the Great Depression.
Third: deserted ‘intellectuals’ which I would interpret as deserted or betrayed leaders that we can believe in. The assassination of the Kennedys was like that- the country NEVER got over it, hope died with Bobby and we never really got it back. Nobody would miss the pseudo-intellectuals of the thought police, except themselves, but that is what this article claims.
Fourth: ‘incompetent government.’ Banging that old drum- the fact is that they weren’t incompetent: they’ve planned all this and DONE IT ON PURPOSE.
Fifth: (and this is laughable) ‘gutless wonders’ in the ruling class. The fact that there even is a ‘ruling class’ in the first place- the Bush Clinton Dynasty and those who hold their puppet strings is a betrayal of EVERYTHING the Constitution and Bill of Rights stands for. We are sick of being betrayed.
Sixth: Fiscal irresponsibility. Our problems have gone WAAAAY beyond ‘irresponsibility.’ It has been deliberate and purposeful plan to bankrupt the country and all the people in it, in order to make a way to claim it for the very few. It could never be done with a free, happy and prosperous American populace. We had to be forced into a total economic collapse and starvation- or else there would be too many cowboys to take this crap.
Seven: Inept and inconsistent use of force. Our government has destroyed our Constitution so that it gets free reign to use any type of violence and force it so chooses, and has corrupted judges and law enforcement all over the country, to do it. This is a HUGE violation of our law- the job of the government is to protect the people from all enemies, both foreign and DOMESTIC, and those who should have been hung or shot for treason bought their way out of justice.
Ron Paul is clearly identified as the only candidate who’s platform addresses ALL SEVEN of these issues.
“Hillary Clinton is failing because this is a revolutionary moment — and she, regrettably, has the misfortune to be too closely identified with the mounting failures of the past that we’re now seeking to move beyond. On the other hand, Ron Paul’s otherwise inexplicable success has been built on his pointed and very specific critique of the kinds of government leadership failures I’ve described.”
Obama talks of hope, but in fact is completely inadequate to address any of them.
Its going to be quite a ride, folks!
