“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.” From the opening of a Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.
The opening of this classic tale perfectly exemplifies the very duality of all politics old and new. It also describes the duality of all things good vs. evil, left vs. right, ying and yang, war and peace, and the list goes on. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. It encompasses the old mystery religion of Hermeticism; As above, so below.
The illusion of two parties in the U.S is what enables the powers that be to contain any real dissent and solidify control. The illusion isn’t real. It is political theater to get the people to fight each other while the elites continue the same agenda both “sides” intended all along. They maintain different talking points and rhetoric to keep the illusion alive. In reality nothing changes when one party takes the White House and the other one leaves.
Let’s examine the current administration with the previous one.
Bush nearly doubled the U.S. debt:
So did Obama:
Bush opened Gitmo. Obama promised to close it twice. It is still open and is currently holding a closed door trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed the alleged “mastermind” of 9-11. If the government has nothing to hide then why all the secrecy?
Bush signed the Patriot Act into law on October 26, 2001. Obama signed the Patriot Act Extension Act of 2011 on May 26th, 2011.
Bush had an Education initiative called “No Child Left Behind” that actually left every child behind by lowering the standards and continuing the dumbing down of our nation. Obama has his own version called Common Core. Since 1980 when the Department of Education started, the U.S. has slipped from 1st to 33rd in reading worldwide behind countries such as Brazil and Mexico.
Both Presidents took the power of the office to new heights with the ability to attack sovereign nations through the use of drone strikes. Obama has even extended the justification of these strikes to include two U.S. citizens without charge or trial. They are currently pondering using it again on another U.S. citizen and the White House just announced they will no longer report what they are doing with drone strikes.
Bush managed to start two wars over false pretenses with two countries that had nothing to do with 9-11. Obama has not only maintained a presence in those two countries but he illegally attacked Libya and attempted to invade Syria over more of the same type lies. They even had the nerve to repeat the mailing of a chemical weapon only this time substituting ricin for anthrax.
Bush bailed out Wall St. and Obama bailed out the auto industry.
Bush said to the world “Either you’re with us or you’re with the terrorists.” Obama upped the ante on that statement and signed the NDAA 2012 which makes it possible for the U.S. government to declare any citizen a terrorist without charge or trial and treat them as such under the rules of war on U.S. soil.
Bush started the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA. Obama has expanded them and talks of a civilian national security force that’s “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”
Bush allowed and aided a Federal Reserve plot to collapse the housing market so they could purchase millions of mortgages for pennies on the dollar. Obama allowed the Federal Reserve to print trillions of dollars in order to continue to hide the failed economy.
They both had speeches saying not to listen to conspiracy theories:
Bush joked about the weapons of mass destruction which cost countless lives and people being maimed for life. Obama matched him with joking about killing with drones:
Both Obama and Bush received the Order of Abdulaziz al Saud. This is a violation of the Constitution Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 which states “No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.”
It’s pretty obvious that the two “sides” are essentially doing the exact same thing. This is the very essence of politicians saying one thing and doing another.
Unfortunately, most people don’t see it and can only cling to their illusion of whether the suit is wearing a red or blue tie. It’s not too late to wake up and realize that the only party winning this game is the ruling party and it has nothing to do with us. We are only the batteries which keeps this machine alive. It is time to disengage from this system or it shall become our demise.
