Is President Bush Our De Facto Dictator?
As if things could not get any worse, now the Bush administration wants to nationalize the banks. Could this be his way of making sure his friends keep on getting those ridiculously high bonuses for running companies into the ground?This really sounds like something Hugo Chavez of Venezuela would be doing. Could it be that President Bush has taken a page from the play book of the Venezuelan Dictator? Anyone want to place a bet on how long before we have martial law here in the United States? Mexico, a third world country, experienced something similar in the last century. The ruling party PRI (pronounced Pree) managed to remain in power for over 70 (seventy) years. Although presidential elections were held every six years the PRI always managed to win over the opposing party (PAN). This was due to the undisputable fact that election fraud was the standard in this third world country.Additionally, it can be said that most of the citizens aided and abetted the fraud and intimidation that accompanied each election. Some in the hopes of gaining a crumb of the pie (trickle down economics?) and others from fear of retaliation.Today I fear we are losing our country. I see the ruling elite taking everything that can be taken. I see our government making every effort to place every thing of value we might have into the hands of the ruling elite. Just yesterday, after learning that part of the bailout handed to AIG went to pay for one big party for the executives of the company; a party that cost over $400,000.00 (four hundred thousand dollars) our ruling elite again handed AIG another bailout to the tune of $37,500,000,000.00 (37.5 billion dollars).History is a great teacher. If we look at the history of other nations we can see what is happening here at home. First, create a national emergency and set yourself up as the savior, the hero. Secondly, take control of the political system as much as possible. Thirdly take as much of the wealth as you can possibly take without drawing suspicion to yourself. Fourthly, nationalize as much of the private sectors as possible. This adds to your power and wealth. And fifth, as the savior and wealthiest member of this corrupt system set yourself up as the “de facto” dictator.Are we in line for a dictatorship? Remember that a dictatorship need not appear to be one on the surface. Mexico had a party that stayed in power and ruled for over 70 years. The Bush administration may very well pass the torch on to a “leader” of his choice. In plain English, is it possible that McCain/Palin have already been anointed by the powers that be and there is nothing we can do to stop it? Assuming that voters turn out in mass on election day and the Democrats lose by a small margin or god forbid the Democrats take the popular vote and lose the electoral vote what then? What will that say about our nation. Our form of government? Our citizens?Its time to act. I suggest you write your congressperson and demand accountability. Express, clearly and succinctly, the idea that unless they take responsibility and act now they will not have a job come November. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Pancho Villa - a bleeding heart liberal Revolutionary.
