PartI, part III.

"It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything".
Joseph Stalin

Democracy at Death’s Doorstep

In November 2000 democracy, or the mirage that passed for it, was dismembered, never again allowed to grace America with its cherished principles espousing the power of ‘We the People.’ It was four years ago that democracy inhaled its last breath of life through the asphyxiation of the People’s will by the powerful grip of electoral fraud. Today, after four years of having experienced the subsequent results of what fraud helped birth, and now with yet another clear case of electoral fraud under our belts, democracy has been replaced by a mutated and debauched species of democracy, one consisting of televised manipulation of votes through media conditioning, two-party charades controlled and commanded by corporate interests, representative façades that no longer serve the People, and election day fictions of electorate mandates along with fantasies of voter empowerment.

All this, combined with the methodical and clandestine rigging of elections by the GOP elite, has resulted in the utter destruction of one of the most honored principles in American history. The beacon of democracy has thus become a bastardized bonfire of duplicity, a sham designed to maintain and control power even as the citizenry is made to believe their voice resonates and steers the country forward. Nothing could be further than the truth.

“We the People,” that brilliantly concocted phrase designed for the consumption of the masses, carefully masqueraded yet hardly ever applied, whose fiction has since its creation been unmasked more and more with each passing decade, has now been firmly revealed for the farce that it is through the second coup d’etat in four years to smear the land of greed and the home of the slave. For those residing inside the entrails of the United Corporations of America, now under the firm grip of the Amerikan Nazis, the term created by the Founding Fathers has ceased to exist. It is now nothing more than a phrase rotting away in the dustbins of history, forever to gather dust, slowly decomposing its once protected greatness, discarded by the indifference and abandonment of the same people it was meant to inspire.

Democracy’s grave today lies in Florida, with its undertaker, Jeb “Jim Crow” Bush, and its mortician, the good old boys’ Grand Old Party, responsible for America’s descent into despotism. It was the Sunshine State that first carried the election fraud cancer four years ago, riddled with tumors and chicanery, in time helping spread it to other states and other elections by the greed addicts and power mongers comprising the Amerikan Nazis. Like pollen carried by the wind the virus traveled freely, passing from host to host, from Diebold machine to Diebold machine, infecting Amerikan Nazi minions, from Katherine Harris in Florida to Kenneth Blackwell in Ohio, traitors to a now terminally infected nation, catalysts to mass murder and incalculable crimes against humanity.

Growing in malignancy, the cancer proliferated into many other states. It was tested to great success in the mid-year elections of 2002 (think Georgia, Florida), and was perfected in time for the grand prize of 2004, culminating in the Buckeye state of Ohio, systematically delivered to George Bush through an array of clandestine methods that would make a third-world dictator merry with Christmas glee and New Year’s bliss.

If in November 2000 the monster’s heinous face was finally uncovered, revealing to those no longer blinded by the System its true and contemptible nature, then in November 2004 we witnessed its dastardly growth and mutation into a malevolent tumor afflicting the greatest democracy the world has ever known.

The election of 2000 had been too close, a certain defeat for BushCo without Florida’s massive fraud, and never again would the People be allowed to interrupt the master plans of the corporatists (criminals) and zealots (murderers) who were destined to rule the new Amerika. And so, the Amerikan Nazis, patient and sinister, understanding the rapid evolution of technology, owning the mechanisms by which elections were held, counted and tallied, and possessing monopolistic control of the halls of governance, waited as time became their ally and conditioned fear and ignorance of the citizenry became their bedfellows.

The Florida Fraud of 2000, followed by the Supreme Court selection, assured the Amerikan Nazis of four years to perfect their democracy-destroying mechanisms, four years to study their strategy, upgrade their Jim Crow techniques, subvert democracy-protecting legislation, learn from their mistakes, improve their technology, research voting trends and demographics, distribute their election-rigging machines, refine their vote-manipulating code, unleash their army of lackeys and install the infrastructure necessary to once and forever control American elections.

It was only natural, then, that with the advent and evolution of digital technology, advancements in optical scanners, upgrades in computer power and the privatization of elections that those entities unscrupulous in character, absorbed in the corruption birthed by absolute power and enemies to democracy would attempt to erode the basic fabric of the will of the People. Such has happened with the 2004 Presidential elections, the second coup d’etat in four years to riddle its disease-soaked tumor onto the lands of the nation once known as the greatest democracy to ever exist.

Déjà vu all over again

Over 100 million Americans went to the voting booth on November 4, 2004 to help elect the next President of the United States. Voter turnout was massive as record numbers of citizens headed to the polls intent on having their voice heard. What they did not know, however, was that the presidential election had already been decided in favor of George W. Bush months, if not years, before.

The Amerikan Nazi strategy of rigging elections has been carefully implemented during the last six years, if not longer. Through control of every aspect of American elections, from ownership of electronic voting machines and optical scanning equipment designed to count votes, owned by Diebold, ES & S and Triad, to political control of state officials responsible for the implementation and enforcement of elections - think the Ken Blackwell’s and Jeb “Jim Crow” Bush’s of the world - to the control of state legislatures and Supreme Courts to the one-party ownership of all branches of the federal government and its vast arsenal of power, including the ability to squash democracy protecting legislation, the Amerikan Nazis have assured themselves of perpetual fraud, massive deceit of the American People, and continual domination of governance.

Electronic voting machines are the most devious mechanism yet created to assassinate democracy. Why they have been allowed to infiltrate American elections, even when they function without paper trails, without accountability, without overbearing security of codes and technology, without the ability to trace how a vote is created and by whom, is a travesty. Yet it is Republican legislatures that have refused to allow paper trails of machines or audits or investigations into the effects of private enterprise possessing the ability to run American elections.

This past November, it was these same machines, along with optical scanners counting the voting tallies, that defrauded the American people of their democracy. In district after district, votes were stolen from Kerry while at the same time higher voting numbers were given to Bush. In fact, in many districts voter turnout favoring Bush statistically outnumbered the total number of voter registrations, and in other areas, Democratic votes dropped dramatically from their 2000 numbers, even in Democrat heavy districts and even with a massive outpouring of progressive voter drives.

The machine codes of Republican controlled election equipment were most likely formulated to erode ten votes here, one hundred there, 1000 over there, amounting to insignificant numbers when seen from individual polling place to polling place, yet in the aggregate, statewide and nationally, these small eroded numbers end up adding up to hundreds of thousands of votes methodically taken away from Kerry and naturally favoring Bush.

Combined with the now obvious tampering and hacking into these companies’ non-secure codes and machines whose fraudulent glitches gave massive and non-existent vote numbers to Bush and the disenfranchisement of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of minority votes, the fraud that is the election of 2004 becomes apparent.

Historically, exit polls have never been wrong, except in Florida 2000 and now in every state rigged in favor of Bush. (If exit polls can convince the Bush administration that the Ukraine suffered electoral fraud, then why is the same not so here?) This year, exit polls were right on the money in those states not seen as strategic, battleground areas. But in those vitally important for both candidates, such as Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and Florida, dependent on electronic voting machines and optical scanners, the exit polls substantially differed from the results. In these states, substantial Kerry leads in exit polls resulted in Bush victory at the voting booth.

Exit polls from districts not using electronic voting machines and optical scanners were also right on target as compared to the results of polling places using them. The fraud cannot be more obvious. Exit polls were pointing in the direction of a Kerry landslide in key battleground states, yet a few hours later these figures changed dramatically in an impossible shift in numbers. The machines had been hacked, they had suddenly worked their magic, and incredibly, what appeared like a sure victory for Kerry turned into a dramatic win for Bush.

The anomalies and the glitches have been everywhere, and reports from all across the nation report the same thing. Yet in every case, these so-called mistakes and natural errors only seem to favor Bush. Now, anyone with a slight education in statistics will tell you that this is quite impossible. Surely we would see errors favoring Kerry, right? Well, we do not, every glitch in the election favors Bush, coincidentally with Republican controlled voting machines and optical scanners that count the votes. And we still debate that the election was stolen?

The fraud was massive, systemic, methodical and coldly-calculated to steal the election in favor of Bush and the Amerikan Nazis. Clandestine and ingenious, the infrastructure built by the Republicans, from top to bottom, assured that everything would work to perfection. The cover up, from elected officials in Ohio and elsewhere to those People’s representatives in Washington to the cowards in the corporate media has been colossal. Yet slowly, but surely, the truth is coming out, as it usually always does.

Democracy was dealt a Texas lethal injection, executing the glimmer of hope elections and votes represented. In its last breaths of agony and suffering it bellowed its excruciating shrieks from the belly of the state of Ohio, its indifferent executioner. A Presidential election has once more been stolen, the second coup against the American people in four years, obvious to anyone not having their head buried in the sand or stuck in the haze of ignorance.

More importantly, the nation of, by and for the People has been usurped, defrauded of the mandate of voters and the will of the People. The rise of the Amerikan Nazis thus continues, coinciding with the death of American democracy, its power eviscerated, never again allowed to jeopardize the interests or power of those most threatened by the voting mandate of the masses.

For democracy in its purest forms is the mortal enemy of the greed addicted, power hungry, unscrupulous-laden, corrupt, criminal and warmongering pestilence that today resides in Washington, their plague-like virus encroaching the halls of Congress, the offices of governance and homes old and white.

The will of the People only gets in their way; it interferes with their plans, interrupts their ideologies and castrates their intentions. Autocrats, like a fly thriving on fecal matter, prosper on despotism; they depend on absolute power and control of the nation to implement the devastation of the masses for the prosperity of the few.

Democracy only hinders their plans, and so becomes an enemy to tyranny, which, once in power, begins slicing off the appendages of democratic principles. There is nothing despots hate more than the voice of the People and the power of the masses. They detest dissent and protest, free-thought and informed intelligence.

And so, like vultures circling a dead carcass, the cabal of miscreants now in power has swarmed down to feast, gutting the Peoples’ will and voice, eroding America’s collective intelligence and manipulating minds through the power of propaganda and brainwashing, courtesy of corporate media and the whores it calls journalists, now nothing more than loudspeakers spewing government/corporate rhetoric into the minds of Americans.

Like Taking Candy From a Baby

The television has become the most useful and powerful manipulator of minds, and hence of votes, ever envisioned by those in power. Its sheer ability to define issues favorable to those who control television makes the television the ultimate weapon of mass deception. Those who control television and its content control the masses. America has reached a stage where the television has become society’s outlet to the world, acting as entertainer and informer, educator and conveyor of escapism. The power of the monitor, beamed into every home, seen by nearly every pair of eyes, when combined with a population easily controlled, unwise to the world and ignorant beyond repair, becomes the tool assuring despots such as the Amerikan Nazis of mass support and of blind sheep easily herded, both indifferent to the actions of those in power and pacified to the criminal nature of their enterprise.

If Joseph Goebbels succeeded with much less, transforming a defeated nation into a molten cauldron of warmongers soaked in blind patriotism, violent nationalism, animalistic fear and ignorant xenophobia, all done without the use of television, imagine the successes of Karl Rove, Zionists, corporatists and the Amerikan Nazis who like puppet masters skillfully command the thoughts, actions and beliefs of millions of Americans. When the television has become the new conduit of reality, the new altar of American prayer and experience, acting as parent, teacher, preacher and manipulative religion, it is easy to surmise, then, that a population bred for and addicted to television, with its vast arsenal of programming controlled by the same corporations now in control of government, has for years marched like soldier ants and worker bees to the drumbeat and marching orders of those in power.

Whether willing or not, the American people have become captives to whatever information is or is not aired by the corporate media. We are unable, for example, to hear any information or news on the debacle in Iraq, with its ceaseless war crimes and mass murders, or on the devastation of both land and man of radioactive depleted uranium, or on the dire threat of global warming, or on the balanced view of the Israeli-Palestinian issue or on dissident points of debate prevalent in this country and, of course, on the ever-widening scandal that is the fraud-riddled election of 2004. We remain, unfortunately, at the mercy of the corporate media, itself in bed with the Amerikan Nazis, unable to inform ourselves of anything detrimental to both government and big business. The sphere of reality, for those who have yet to discover the liberating energy of the Internet, is as limited as those in control of television wish it to be.

When only carefully selected news and information is relayed into our homes, when only the one-sided opinions espoused by government and corporations are showcased, with only the voices of pro-government or corporate talking heads available, when only whitewashed, censored stories and reports favorable to those in power get aired, when vitally important information gets suppressed, when the views of third-party candidates never gets covered and when escapist fantasy is shown over important reality democracy becomes a useless instrument devoid of power.

When the citizenry of a nation can no longer make electoral decisions based on free-thought, on educated information gathering and on the objective reporting of media democracy cannot function. Media today has the ability to censor any candidate running for office it does not approve of. It can help build a candidate up, making him or her the next war president. It can manipulate stories, so-called yells of rage, the popularity of a candidate and inevitably, his or her success. Just ask Howard Dean how his campaign was destroyed in part by the corporate media. The Establishment saw a threat and proceeded to eliminated it.

For an objective, balanced and informative media loyal only to the truth is a pillar of a healthy democracy. When it crumbles, however, as we see today, instead becoming the stepping stone of the Amerikan Nazis’ rise to power and nothing more than corporatist controlled media, democracy is destroyed and can no longer be trusted to help move the nation forward.

An unenlightened populace, imputing televised propaganda as its own opinion, ignorant to the true state of the country, conditioned to never question either the monitor or government propagandists, captured by lies, deceits, fears, schizophrenia and obedient to the Amerikan Nazis cannot be said to vote wisely, with neither all available information at their disposal or with a clear understanding of the issues. This is not democracy, this is controlled debauched democracy, reminiscent of the best media propaganda in the now defunct Soviet Union and Iron Curtain, reminding one of the state owned channels available in dictatorships. Today in America, the only thing those in power have to do to win votes is control the television, its content and message. In the United States, nothing is easier to do.

What the television guarantees the Amerikan Nazis is the undivided attention of the masses who have no other choice but to see and listen to what the corporate media decides to release. At the press of a button, the Amerikan Nazis can manipulate public opinion and steer the direction of the nation’s pulse based on the images beamed and the propaganda voiced by sold out talking heads, journalists and anchors. They can mobilize millions through propaganda and fear, they can make millions vote against their interests through an amalgam of psychologically devastating tools designed to manipulate and condition.

More and more, the media, nothing more than the propaganda-laced loudspeaker of government and the corporate interests that owns it, airs only what the Amerikan Nazis want the population to see and hear. Hence, we see that a complete blackout of the stolen election of 2004 has been implemented by the corporate media. Naturally, this is done so that the vast majority of the sheep can continue grazing tranquilly, not knowing, not caring and not interested. This is done so that momentum of the resistance does not grow, so that more citizens do not become aware of what is being done to us, so that the movement is discredited, so that truth dies and is forgotten, and so that Amerikan Nazi power and control continues to grow without interruption and without an awakening of the masses. The complicit nature of the corporate media, in its failure to cover such a treasonous crime upon the American people, is clear proof of its role in the death of democracy, the birth of despotism now invading America and the rise of the Amerikan Nazis.

Carefully bombarding the human mind with one-sided, censored, misleading, deceitful, manipulative, jingoistic, patriotic diatribe and propaganda, especially in a country where free-thought is the exception rather than the rule, where the thoughts of pundits become the opinions of the masses, where diversity of opinion has evaporated and dissent has ceased to exist, the media, through the television and radio, creates in the thought processes of the masses the illusion that only the opinion it airs exists and can be accepted. Thus what it shows and says must be true because no other opinion or view exists out there in the realm of television. With a populace that does not self-educate itself, dependent entirely on the viewpoints of Amerikan Nazi lackeys for their lackluster attempt at knowledge, this is a recipe for the manipulation of a healthy democracy.

In order to maintain power in a so-called ‘free-society’, where liberty and freedom ring loud and clear, autocrats destroy democracy’s last vestiges, a population’s ability to think independently, rationally, analytically and logically, thereby decimating liberating education and necessary dissent, thereby clandestinely cleansing a nation of the will of the People. Yet retaining the illusion and appearance of democracy is purposefully done so that the masses believe that nothing has changed, that they are in control of their own destiny. Charades of democracy are created, their manipulations ensuring that a dumbed-down populace, in this case nearly 60 million zombies, continue voting against their own interests and for the immoral and criminal power mongers in control.

Controlling the masses has never been easier. Manipulating their minds to the dictates of the Amerikan Nazis is like taking candy from a baby, without so much a whimper or a cry.

Contempt for Diversity and Elections

After November 2000, elections, and the balance of power, would never again be left to the People, for the Amerikan Nazis understood that demographics and the inevitable societal push towards liberalism were evolving against them. America was becoming a melting pot, a heterogeneous cornucopia of world diversity where the status quo was no more and the good old boy network was threatened. Suddenly, one day the American Nazis woke up from a delirious slumber and found the America they adored no longer existed. A spectrum of opinion, ideas, talents and beliefs now dotted the landscape. A nation of snow-covered whiteness and WASP male dominance had become a land of rainforests and deserts and mountains and valleys and jungles and beaches and sun, full of color, warmth and translucent light, a window upon the world.

In diversity and the continued evolution of progressive thought the Amerikan Nazis found fear. They found themselves losing elections to minorities and women and gays, losing power to people of color, to assertive, intelligent women and to united same sex partners. Together with a plethora of young adults, progressive and open, educated and of liberal mind, this mixture of diversity would in a few years make extinct, by way of majority numbers, the way it had always been, where power was monopolized by the elite, white in color, male in gender, born to privilege and forever destined to rule.

Gray and White had, in the course of a few years, mutated into a cocktail of Rainbows and colorful prisms, and in this new America the Amerikan Nazis felt an insurmountable threat surrounding them from all sides. Black and white television had given way to high-definition digital technology; progress was once more working its wonderful magic, trouncing conservative and traditional thought. The fog had cleared, giving way to a crispness not before seen. The Amerikan Nazi hegemony over us and tight grip on the nation would soon, and inevitably, begin crumbling like a rotten wooden barn.

An ever-evolving America, with its ever-evolving society, had taken a great leap forward, a place where female talent now competed with male mediocrity, where African-Americans were slowly entering middle-class mainstream America, where an influx of immigration was transforming the face of the nation for the better. The Amerikan Nazis, Republican and corporatist dinosaurs facing extinction by the asteroid of change, felt threatened, seeing their power perched atop the roofs of governance in peril. Indeed, it was becoming apparent to them that with each passing year, with each new immigrant wave, female act of empowerment, minority advancement, gay right granted, scientific discovery made, religious dogma abandoned and move toward progressiveness their tenuous grip on power would begin to erode.

The threat therefore had to be quashed, the sooner the better. In rigging elections the Amerikan Nazis saw their salvation, and their way to retain power and control. Corrupt technology would rescue them, and forever would they be allowed to transform their Amerika in an image in contrast to the course the nation was presently embarking on. To accomplish this, the minority vote would, as has always been the case, have to be disenfranchised through the vast arsenal of tactics available to the GOP.

Also, the female vote would have to be manipulated, for too many women were turning against the America of old. This would be accomplished using the psychologically devastating effects of 9/11, with perpetual fear, insecurity and constant threats of terror creating in many women a desire to seek protection in the present leader of the country, a “strong” male figure turned war president, George Bush. Thus, using fear, the Amerikan Nazis were able to manipulate in their favor millions of female votes.

In strong progressive white communities, too, mechanisms would be implemented to decimate the ever-growing vote, eroding high numbers of votes by the systematic rigging of electronic voting machines and optical scanners designed to count votes. And so, the great death march of American democracy thus began.

People of color, those comprising every spectrum of the greatness of human diversity, of all shades and ethnicities, were increasing their numbers, growing exponentially each decade, now constituting nearly 30 percent of the population. Historically voting progressive, their numbers were now too large to ignore or disenfranchise through more traditional means. Jim Crow 2.0 would have to be resurrected, evolving with the changing years and new technologies, always decimating “minority” vote for the benefit of the Amerikan Nazis.

The good old boy tradition of suppressing and intimidating the minority vote, for decades successful in erasing the election voice of the black community by apartheid-like inequality, discrimination and segregation, thereby disenfranchising hundreds of thousands if not millions of votes each election, would be upgraded and improved. To the same mechanisms of the past would be added the advanced technology of Republican controlled optical scanners in service to count ballots, as well as electronic voting machines manipulated to tabulate according to the formulas concocted by GOP strategists.

For years separated from “traditional” America, placed in urban reservations infiltrated with drugs, guns and firewater, infested with high crime and infected by the corrosive mechanisms of lost talents and non-existent opportunity, perpetually held down at the lowest echelons of the American caste system, millions of undesired “minorities” knew the oldest, most corrupt, least efficient and least sophisticated voting apparatuses in the country were usually sent their way, causing the disenfranchisement of untold numbers of votes that simply became lost by the incompetence of the machinery.

This past election was no exception, once more affecting the minority vote in all fifty states, usually in poor urban areas, “the minority reservations.” It is difficult to quantify the number of votes lost, spoiled, unread or discarded by these antiquated and run down voting mechanisms, but it is safe to say that the voice of hundreds of thousands never gets heard. In a country of so-called equality, at the dawn of the 21st century, to have this apartheid in voting rights is a disgrace, where environment, socioeconomic status and skin color coalesce to disintegrate a person’s right to vote.

While white, more affluent communities not caught in the vicious circle of corrosive segregation - not to mention Republican strongholds - get the most modern voting equipment, guaranteeing their right to vote, destitute neighborhoods, mostly of color and mostly liberal voting, those lacking resources and education, get shafted with the discarded machines of yesterday. These machines, antiquated and inefficient, are purposefully sent to minority reservations simply because they guarantee that hundreds of thousands of votes will never be counted. This the Amerikan Nazis know too well, which is why they fight to keep it that way. After all, with the elimination of so many votes, the vast majority of which go against their interests, the Amerikan Nazis succeed in retaining the power and control of governance, forever keeping the minority voice silent and suppressed.

As an example, in Ohio this past election voting irregularities abounded, particularly in minority districts. The Amerikan Nazi strategy of eliminating progressive votes while increasing their own numbers was methodically implemented in the crucial state of Ohio, this election’s Florida. In many black neighborhoods, traditionally voting strongly for liberal candidates, the disenfranchisement of votes was everywhere. Besides the use of antiquated voting equipment mentioned above, in districts where electronic voting machines were used, votes for Kerry were transferred to fringe candidates with no popular support. A few hundred here, a few hundred there, county to county, district to district, electronic voting machine code, controlled by Diebold, a strong Republican-backed corporation, systemically manipulated the vote so that Democrat votes for Kerry ended up elsewhere. When added together, these votes are significant.

Also, too few voting machines were sent to districts, even with many machines available for distribution, resulting in hours upon hours of waiting in line, with voters growing impatient and leaving, most having to return to work or other responsibilities. Thus, untold thousands were unable to cast votes. Meanwhile, in Republican dominated districts, an abundance of voting machines were available, meaning people’s wait was minimal. This happened over and over again in Ohio, as well as other strategically important states. Still in other districts, there were many reports of votes for Kerry suddenly and without explanation being converted into votes for Bush. This was repeated in small numbers throughout Ohio, the end result being that separately, what appears to be a small number of votes disenfranchised, easily discarded as computer errors, in the aggregate turns out to be a substantial number of votes away from Kerry and for Bush.

Broken Like Wild Stallions

We are puppets, one and all, our attached strings easily maneuvered, our brainwashed minds easily controlled. Too many years of accumulated televised propaganda, too many years of control and manipulation by our schools and corporate media have made us immune to the spirit of rage and the power of the People present in other regions of the world but sorely extinct here. We have been inoculated with acquiescence and passivity, becoming humans living in a vegetative state incapable of rising up, conditioned to believe in the greatness of government and its lawmakers, trained well to obey laws and rules even when they favor those in power and when they fail to seek justice and equality, even as corporations and the government rape and pillage our ways of life, even as the future of our children is put in grave danger more and more each day we fail to act. The System has worked its magic, and comatose drones living mechanical lives have we been bred to become, from the cradle to the grave, swimming in a cocktail of complacency, indifference, passivity and conformism.

The evidence of this is enveloping, it is all around us. Our failure to rise up as one giant energy, millions strong, seeking accountability and justice, searching for a government no longer serving the needs of the People, demanding the end to corporate rule, forcing change in policy and direction and putting an end to the criminal nature of our politicians is proof that our human spirit has been extinguished, our will to fight extinct. Today, in spite of massive, overwhelming and accumulating evidence of election fraud, in spite of being lied and led into illegal war and criminal mass murder, in spite of the miserable failure of our leaders, in spite of the likely road to totalitarianism we seem headed towards and in spite of the profound danger Bush has and continues to place us in we continue to live life not caring, not knowing and not interested.

We have been tamed, like a wild stallion, broken, saddled and corralled, robbed of the freedom to roam America’s plains, now faithful and obedient to our wicked masters, unwilling to take action, unwilling to resist and revolt, much like the Declaration of Independence asks us to do in times of tyranny, instead complacent in life, entertained by bread and circus, uncaring for our future, ignorant to our present, blind to the destruction of America being perpetrated by those in power. We are like zoo animals, encaged, depressed, controlled, conditioned, defeated.

We are unlike the hundreds of thousands of brave people of Ukraine demanding that justice be served and democracy re-instated, marching and protesting, or unlike the millions of Italians who in solidarity against the economic policies of Silvio Berlusconi recently enacted a massive, country-wide strike that grinded that nation to a halt, or unlike millions of Eastern Europeans trapped inside the Iron Curtain in the late 1980’s, creating revolution and mass protest, finally demanding and getting freedom and an end to tyranny and corrupt political systems, or unlike millions of Palestinians, who under Nazi and apartheid-like treatment by Israelis continue struggling for their lands and their culture, becoming a testament to the will of the human spirit, refusing to cower to occupiers and dehumanizers, or unlike the thousands of Chileans and Canadians marching through their streets, protesting the arrival of the greatest criminal against humanity now living, or unlike the millions of Venezuelans marching together in support of their beloved leader Hugo Chavez, democratically elected yet American castigated, slowly making profound changes to help improve the lives of his poor, or unlike the millions upon millions who marched throughout the world in February 2003 against the imminent attack on Iraq, filling streets by the millions, in a show of solidarity never before seen.

The flame inside us has disappeared, replaced by a cold and dark void, even as we witness firsthand the arrival of fascism and the death of democracy, even as we are witness to the end of freedom and rights and the extinction of the land once known as America.

From a Small Ripple to a Massive Wave

Yet a small movement grows, made up of brave patriots and seekers of truth, which refuses to die. It is slowly building momentum, gathering steam as its numbers swell with the arrival of still more truths that, it seems, become manifest every day. The cover up of the electoral fraud of 2004 is imploding, seam by seam and code by code, slowly unraveling as the beautiful energy of those fed up with the Amerikan Nazis grows in rage and power.

In every state and every city the resistance to the Amerikan Nazis gathers more numbers of dissidents ready to join a small yet momentous army of change. The movement is exposing more truth as diverse talents expose the crimes and fraud perpetrated against the American People. Collectively saying “No More” to the power mongers and war criminals that have stolen the past two elections, the movement is uncovering what the corporate media refuses to touch. In spite of the media blackout on the stolen election, which is designed to erase memories of fraud from the short-attention span of the average American, the movement refuses to die. On the contrary, it is gathering steam, becoming a much needed burst of positive energy upon the lands of the United States.

In spite of all obstacles and hindrances placed at our feet, in spite of the power of the Amerikan Nazis to erase from history this most malevolent episode in our history, in spite of a well-conceived and planned cover up, the movement is growing. It is because of people like you, reading this essay, that the fraud lingers in our conscious. It is because of seekers of truth and justice that the Amerikan Nazis are being exposed.

From a small ripple can a massive wave be formed, washing from our lands the criminal elements living among us. From a giant wave of positive energy can the virus that is the Amerikan Nazis forever be vanquished. We must inoculate ourselves against the disease ripping apart democracy by joining together in this movement to uncover the crimes against the American people. We must not let it die for the truth is emerging. If we let the Amerikan Nazis win, every election from here on will be filled to the brim with fraud and deceit, and the end of America as we know it will be upon us. Only together can we defeat tyranny, exposing it to the least enlightened among us and forever changing the course of America, and the world. The movement must continue, for if not now, when?

Enough is enough, government is today destructive to the principles we espouse as a people. Let us listen, read and absorb those words uttered so long ago by the Founding Fathers. Not since their time have the words engraved in the Declaration of Independence been so in need. For it is our duty and our right to alter or abolish this tyrannical regime that no longer serves the interests of the People. It is our sacred duty to expose despotism and rising dictatorship, to circumvent the prostitutes of the corporate media and report truths hidden from our eyes, to rise up in protest at what is being done to us and to restore the republic to what it once portended to be, and what it is capable of being.

Do not let the movement die, let it grow along with the raging fire burning inside us all, let it prosper and expand, becoming the leviathan feared by the Amerikan Nazis. May it guide us in strength and courage to help save both our present and future. From a small ripple may a giant wave be created, cleansing and washing away from our America the putrid disease infecting a great, noble and good People.

The Declaration of Independence

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. —That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. —Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.

Valenzuela returns with part II of his Chomsky-esque screed about the rise of American Socialism. What he failed to mention about Stalin is, he ran unopposed because anyone who dared to run against him was sent to the Siberian gulags or "mysteriously disappeared".

Please. Manuel, you’d be a excellent clown if you didn’t take yourself seriously. The scary thing is, he probably does.

Mr. Valenzuela SHOULD take himself seriously for he seems to be one of the only ones speaking the truth.
Wake up America! This country is being taken over by a bunch of "criminals". They say one thing and do another, lie, cheat, steal,and have caused the death of thousands (Iraq and 9/11). Anyone who says anything against them either gets their career ruined or gets chastised (Koffi Anan), all the while, while they pretend to support these people. Sounds like you could be a member of their administration!
For our children’s sake we need to put a stop to this NOW!

Dear Fearmonger,

America is wide awake, it’s you lost children of the lunatic Left who are still asleep. It’s for our children’s sake as well as for future generations that Islamofascism is being defeated in the Middle East.

As far as chastisement and ruined careers are concerned - Annan’s a crook. Dowd, Ivins, Krugman, Huffington, Thomas, Cohen and even that curmudgeonly Andy Rooney are still alive and working.

I suggest you wake up and smell the coffee. It’s the dawn of a new age today.

America has never been more asleep ! Using military power to force a political system and way of life on soveriegn nations, that don’t want it, is what the "Evil Empire" did. So who is the evil empire now ? WAKE UP THERE IS NO WAR ON ISM ! What we have here IS corporate m. Corporate headquarters is in the white house. Any true American patriot would be clamoring for Bush’s arrest as a war criminal. He is flushing our great nation down the tiolet, and he must be stopped. Oh.....If i disappear in the near future, you now know why. Every thing he has said has been a lie. verything he has done has only benefited big biz. He is the most d person on earth, and HE THINKS HE HAS A MANDATE. The last person with this attitude executed two thirds of my family. We will not let Bush and his cronies continue on this course of world tion. Oh...If anybody thinks he is making things safer for us.....well, it takes the brains god gave a turnip to see that he is causing more people to us every day. Again, WAKE UP !!

Dear readers,
This site has started to become the personal sounding board for someone calling himself the Ugly American. His posts are filled with vulgarity and Republican propaganda. His goal seems to be to taunt anyone who may post or write anything he does not agree with by being ugly and disgusting in every manner.

I would like to ask you all to please ignore him and skip over his posts, and please do not respond to him. This kind of poster needs attention like a tantrum throwing child. The best way to silence him is to totally ignore him.

Thank you all for your help.

I live in Tampa, Florida USA

I consider myself a good American. My father fought the facists in North Africa in WWII. My son is in the US Army in Afghanistan.

I dont like what Valenzuela has to say about my country. I wish I could refute it. The problem is I am afraid he is right on a lot of his points. I feel like my country has been taken over by the most evil people I can imagine. I feel like Im in a cheap science fiction movie where everyone has gone brain dead overnight and Im the only one who can still think.

My neighbors all drive huge gas guzzling trucks and SUVs with plastic "Support Our Troops" ribbons on the back. (printed in China)

I ask them what specifically they have done to actually support the troops and they cant answer.

I try to engage someone, anyone in an intelligent conversation about the War and cannot do so.

Many of my neighbors couldnt find North America on a map let alone Iraq.

Most of them are ignorant and clueless, but the Christians are downright blood thirsty and evil.

I dont know where to turn or what to do.

God help America, God help us all.

Dear Floridian,

After reading your reply, I have come to the conclusion that you lead a rather sheltered existence. Painting Christians with such a broad brush stroke tells me you are in league with the Fascist Left, and have become duped by their propaganda like Valenzuela has already done to so many regular visitors to this site.

I salute your dad and your son for their service to G_d’s Country, but pity them for being slapped by you after what you have said in this reply. I think an appropriate act of contrition would be for you to join your local USO and quit worrying about your neighbors and their yellow-ribboned SUVs.

I have faith in the American People. The Declaration of Independence tells us we can throw rocks when the government fails to protect our basic rights. "We the People" will return. That day will come. This is not unlike our early struggle against Big Business in the late 1800’s or the backlash against powerful Unions in the Reagan years. We the People have often been taken to the extremes only to once again find balance. I am not a liberal but an American who recognizes full well how big money dominates this Country with the fraudulent leadership of Bush. This war is disgraceful sacrificing our young boys for Bushes pride. You can never force a people to desire liberty. They must earn it themselves. They will hate us to the bitter end. Our real battle is within our own country...in our own homes, in our school and on the streets. We need to return to the high morality of our founding fathers. We need to invest once again in our own children, our schools, our communities, our people. The greatest nation in the world....says that it promotes family values and then...millions cannot afford health care or education, jobs are without honor, corporations have no courage and far less credibility. The day Bush pushes public education to the wayside in favor of corporate education is the day this nation dies and the quest for liberty ends. The gap then widens between the haves and the have nots. Revolution will ultimately result as the rich tighten their grip on power while destroying the essential power of "We the People". We will return. We will throw rocks. That which is good and great and honorable will return. Pass it forward.

Changing the meaning of democracy
Corporate money and personhood limit Americans from putting their money where their heart is. At this Christmas time, as borrowing and spending for war is being forced on Americans to bring “democracy” in Iraq, the economic plan to privatize Social Security being proposed by President Baal Bush will fail dismally because the root cause of our economic woes is the system itself. Why? Because the F.I.C.A. deductions from workers’ paychecks are no longer used to pay benefits, but to buy bonds. Usury, interest from the bonds, pays benefits. The Social Security Trust Fund was raided by Congress.
Until the mid-20th Century, debt was considered a temperorary condition, and certainly not a source of wealth to create money from. Taxation was used to retire debt. No more. Recently, Congress changed its philosophy. Corporate employers, the institutional church included, have embraced usury as the basis of our economic system, money lending at interest. This system, a capital offense in the Old Testament, is bleeding us to death. But Bush’s war on terror makes it OK as fear rules Americans.
Since the Johnson Administration enacted the Coinage Act of 1965, replacing the silver-backed dollar of real wealth required by the U.S. Constitution for Americans to pay taxes and retire debt, ALL money is borrowed into circulation. Thus more is owed than is lent. The only way to repay the original debt is to borrow additional money.
Hence the cyclical nature of our economy and the unjust means by which the lender, the Federal Reserve, has made debt slaves of the government and the people. The Fed is a private banking cartel. It pretends to be something it is not by the mere addition of Federal to its name.
EVERY dollar in circulation was borrowed from this group of super banks, most of which are based in Europe. This institution has never been audited! Suffice to say, it has become the single wealthiest entity in this world system and every dime it possesses has been gained in an immoral and illegal manner.
By removing this vampire from the throat of our country and seizing its fraudulently gained assets (the Congress shall have the power to coin money – not a group of independent super banks) the U.S. would immediately be out of debt with enough left over to fund even the wildest squanderings our Congress is capable of.
Guns and butter, folks, and you don’t pay a dime. Your taxes are reduced to 10% of your income with no hidden taxes elsewhere. Money is placed into circulation backed by precious metals and public lands as opposed to the valueless Federal Reserve Notes now used. www.libertydollar.org
Although it would throw the money-changers out of the temple and leave us debt-free, the plan is impossible to implement. Why again? The polarity of sin is diametrically opposed to abundance. No nation can raise hell and prosperity in the same field. The fruit of sin is poverty, and Bush’s religious faith-based charity initiative doesn’t realize this.
To be the church in this world, what must the church be? A new government?
For starters, it could advocate a classless system of society under which the socially required means of production are socially owned and controlled with production carried on for use through the democratic management of the useful producers. Let the constitutional amendments start flowing like they used to when womens’ suffrage was an issue. Let the striking workers’ picket signs read, “VOTE@WORK,” for the usury issue.
This is a worthy goal for the labor leaders to bring in the moneyless, classless society of democracy for our childrens’ future that complements the love of neighbor as self and ushers into history a long period of warless stewardship to let the Earth heal.

You say you are not a liberal as if it is a bad thing to say. On the contrary you sound very much like a liberal to me. Being liberal isn’t confined to being on the extreme left. You can be a born again christian, a family oriented person with good values and a humanitarian. We do not all believe in abortion or stem cell research. We do believe in the civil rights of our fellow man.

I appreciated reading your post and I hope for your sake and mine that our country will return to what it was when we were proud of it.

At this time I find that I have never been so scared and feel that things cannot get much worse but I will continue to have faith in my God and hope that the circumstances surrounding us will improve.



May God help us...

The ugly american is such a desperately sad figure, so pathetic, so hurt. Can’t you see him strutting aroung and pounding his little fists. Maybe he’ll go out and try his power out on someone else, when he gets himself so riled up with the lack of attention he feels he deserves. He’s fearful in the sense that one wishes to keep him away from children. He’s dangerous to those obviously weaker than he is. His greed and self-aggrandizement are what make him so miserable, so miserly, so much lower than anyone else. Even though he drives a big car and eats like a pig, and elbows people out of the way, he’s really homeless, almost soul-less. He doesn’t have a nice thing to say, even though deep inside he still has a human soul; he desperately fears connecting with other beings, wishing instead to call them names, trying to pull them down below his own hellish state.

This is a person already in hell. He can never be happy, unless he’s consuming others, grabbing up whatever he can, or cheating others of what they deserve. Oh he makes a big show of his generosity, but when things get tight, he’s back to pushing, back-stabbing, and trying to take unfair advantage. The days for people like him will end soon, perhaps even in his lifetime, perhaps not, and then he will miss out on his own redemption, which might possibly come about if he opens his heart and mind to other people, to other ideas, to consider even for a moment that all people are worthy of respect—not above each other, but side by side in their suffering, joy and mortality.

Good Luck, you mis-led soul. You, too, have inside what is noble and respectworthy, and when you find it, you will also come to respect others and yourself. Until then, when you are in pain, it’s okay to reach out to another person and ask for help. And even if you lash out, we will know in our hearts what it is you really need, and we’ll attempt to show you some kindness, respect and hide our pity.

I never completed high school. I have been arrested twice. Once for drunk driving and the other for making a pass on a blond female cop. She came and warned me. I struck my middle finger to that ’hot’ blond cop. She arrested me for "obstruction of justice" charge. Went to jail for 2 weeks. Was missing the smell of hot coffee.

I am pretty wise. Valenzuela’s an idiot. I call others moron who point my mistakes. ’Cause I make NO MISTAKES. I took an IQ test and my score was 80. Isn’t that high? I get enormous pleasure at other’s sorrow. Like the ’shock & awe’ the poor children are getting in Iraq. I love to kick ass to little kids who cannot fight with me. I never mess with a 300 lbs 6’6" strong dude.

Dear Buttmonkey,

You’re about as fresh as a KC & The Sunshine Band 8-track, and as intelligent as a NFL fullback. Notice that I didn’t call you a Moron, since their are other ways of pointing out one’s failures without being as blunt.

I find it truly amazing that you can tell so much about an individual without ever meeting them in person. The awful truth is, you can’t - so you resort to talking out of your ass to puff yourself up. This type of thinking is at the core of Fascism, and your goose-stepping march to belittle those who hold opinions contrary to your own must be defeated, as Islamofascism is being defeated in the Middle East.

Kindly go fuck yourself, you Nazi asshole. Us Americans don’t need your kind around here.

Dear Idealist,

I shouldn’t be the one whom you feel sorry for, but I’ll leave that one alone for another comment at another time and place.

I still find it amazing how powerful your powers of allusion, in your perception, can be trusted to paint an accurate portrait of someone you’ve never met. In reality, they aren’t. You are using a propaganda tactic favored by the Fascist Left to spread The Big Lie.

Perhaps you can return another time to make a worthwhile contribution to these forums without making ad hominem smears towards other commenters, but I won’t hold my breath waiting for that to happen. I think you’re incapable of it.

Kindly go fuck yourself and the horse you rode in on.

It is all brainwashed propaganda those who can’t analytically think for themselves spew to make themselves feel good. Idiots like him need to believe the crap they spew to feel their existence has meaning in the world. Weak-minded buffoon. Eventually with nobody responding to his posts his psychologically fragile ego will force him to copulate with his lonely farm dog Bubbles . I say he gives us his mailing address and we each chip in to get him a year’s supply of AstroGlide for those hard to reach canine anal cavities. What better psychotherapy than that, Ugly?

I’m sure the millions of victims of actual Naziism and their families also find the United States much more guilty of crimes against humanity than the Third Reich ever was. Adolf was quite a wonderful chap indeed compared to George W Bush! And Auschwitz? Ha! A mere rest camp if you look at Abu Ghraib. Yes my friends, America is the worst country in world history, so it’s completely logical and acceptable to ignore the trifling inconveniences happening to others elsewhere. Why I’ll bet George Bush is stabbing babies right now!!! He’s killed hundreds of trillions of people just today! I’m outraged too! Stop the madness!!!

Quit with the boasting. Murder is murder whether you call it Auschwitz or Fallujah.

Valenzuela was right on target. Senator Kerry won the election by a landslide. The election was stolen by a band of unsavory crooks who are out to steal the oil of the Middle East. Blood for OiL That’s their motto

I know this may not belong in this rubric, but somebody mentioned gas guzzling SUV’s.

The American consumers get the worst products at the highest price possible.

GM and Ford for example are building very different vehicles in means of quality, safety and
features in Europe.
The American gasoline is one of the worst on earth, it is low in octane, high on sulfur and
made so pourly that a combustion engine can hardly make any efficient use of it.
The American environmental law is nice on paper, but it is not enforced. Meaning the cars
exhaust is tested in a way that damages of catalyst can’t be detected.
Home Appliances are also made in way that the need more energy then neccessary.
Recently we heart about homeland security bothering about food safety, because of
terrorist attacks. The American consumer should fear the greed of the their local stores
where old meat is taken out of the shelves, treated and then offered again.

I could write a book about that...
American supremacy! Where? It never happens!

Dear readers,
It has been very boring reading this site since someone named Ugly American has been posting hundreds of comments from his limited and sick mind. I have found it helpful to skip over anything He posts, and I would like to ask everyone’s help in getting rid of Him by suggesting we ALL skip his posts unread until he just goes away. Like a child he will continue to be obnoxious until he gets some attention which He obviously needs very badly. So dear readers please do not post anything or add anymore comments to his posts and maybe we can get rid of him.

Laughable, word momentous, xenophobic juvenilia diatribe swollen in anti-everything anarchism with retorts as to a pretense of inclusively but mired in agonist exclusivity droning in a malice for those opposed and most assuredly born of a mob rejected and failed utopian ideology that is itself complicit in guilt through its silence of majority and acquiescence to the condescending trolling of juvenile dementia that would rant in such
advocacy of “Schadenfrude” (German) and irrational hate inspired cynicism predicted not on a palatable and hopeful dogma or ideology but rather one dredged from the dark recesses of dishonorable pretenses of a paranoiac psychosis of shame symbolized by the purveyor’s ideas juxtapose to all people particularly those he opposes.

This is triad of juvenile lambasting as to ideas of cynicism that can not purport change itself but rather, thunder in lambaste in the manor of Schadenfrude seeking self fulfillment to the legacy of supremacy that all the great intolerants like Nazism and Fascism and Communism where and are principled in.

It is not what you do nor like that advents change to the world it is what you can change with ideas, tolerance and compromise that repents the world from the sin you surmise.

Che, like the revolutionaries before and after him, died in the jungle or died by their own creed or remained isolated and demurred into the oblivion from which they came. It is a revolution of hope and tolerance and not the rants of cynicism that will prevail in the end.

That is all!

The Dem’s are leading the way toward fascism in America today. The biggest indicator is their lust for gun "control" using fear,lies and hype they are filling the prisons with young black and latinos for the "crime" of gun ownership. All genocide from the right or left was preceded by disarming the intended victims.
Any American who voted for Kerry was voting to increase the amount of blacks and latino in our criminal penal system.

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
