A Trio of Outrages: How a Country Dies
'Unskewed Polls' founder sets up site claiming Obama stole the election ... Dean Chambers, the man behind the "Unskewed Polls" website, has a launched a new website declaring the election was stolen by Democrats. The website, www.BarackOFraudo.com, identifies four "black states" Chambers claims were stolen by President Obama through massive voter fraud and suppression operations. According to the website, Democratic ballot stuffing was the reason Obama carried the critical swing states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida. – The Hill
Dominant Social Theme: Everything is okay in the US. It's a very free place.
Free-Market Analysis: Several articles of note seem to sum up the US these days. The first is the one excerpted above about vote stealing by the Obama administration.
We're on record as stating that we simply don't believe Obama won the election. That doesn't mean we're pro-Romney, of course. We watched Romney steal the GOP nomination from libertarian-conservative Ron Paul via intimidation, fraudulent rule changes and outright violence.
But the vote stealing and election rigging at all levels of the US federal election process is increasingly blatant. That's how a society dies. When those engaged in the process are so bold they don't care who knows, then you've got an increasingly ruined culture.
Then there is this, over at CNET news: "Senate bill rewrite lets feds read your e-mail without warrants ... Proposed law scheduled for a vote next week originally increased Americans' e-mail privacy. Then law enforcement complained. Now it increases government access to e-mail and other digital files."
This is more evidence of overt US rot. US laws used to cohere somewhat to natural law but no more. Anything goes in Washington DC. It seems normal now to hear about some federal power grab that undermines privacy under the pretense of pursuing a "war on terror."
In fact, there IS no war on terror. The CIA apparently created Al Qaeda and the same terrorists that the agency claims to be fighting are being shipped around the Middle East via the UN to fight for Western interests in Libya and now Syria. This is a strange kind of enemy, one that can be friend or foe as the need arises.
The motivating force behind the endlessly expanding spying and loss of more and more freedoms throughout the West is a battle between what we call the "power elite" and the rest of us over world domination.
A handful of elites want to create global government, evidently and obviously. The rest of us just want to be left alone.
It is a war in which the elites are always seemingly pressing the attack. They are doing as much as they can to undermine the mass of people that stands in their way – some knowingly and some unwittingly.
Here's yet another recent news story on these sorts of assaults, this one at the Economic Collapse blog:
They Are Going To Make It Nearly Impossible To Pass On A Farm Or A Business To Your Children ... If you have a farm or a small business, would you like to pass it on to your children when you die? Well, unless Congress does something, it is going to become much, much harder to do that starting next year.
Right now, there is a 5 million dollar estate tax exemption and anything above that is taxed at 35 percent. But on January 1st, the exemption will go down to 1 million dollars and the tax rate will go up to 55 percent. A lot of liberals are very excited about this, because they believe that the government will be soaking wealthy people like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.
But the truth is that a lot of farms, ranches and small businesses will be absolutely devastated by this change in the tax law. There are many farmers and ranchers out there today that do not make much money but are sitting on tracts of land that are worth millions of dollars.
According to the American Farm Bureau, approximately 97 percent of all farms and ranches in the United States would be subject to the estate tax if the exemption was reduced to just a million dollars. That means that the children of these farmers and ranchers would be faced with a very cruel choice when it is time to inherit these farms and ranches. Either they come up with enough money to pay the government about half of what the farm or ranch is worth, or they sell the farm or ranch that may have been in their family for generations. - Economic Collapse.
These three stories give us a good sense of the undeclared war between the elites that use their tremendous central banking wealth to control governments and the increasingly harassed and weakened middle class.
The political class works for these elites and is coddled and returned to office whenever possible. In President Barack Obama's case, it seems incontrovertible that fraud was used.
In order to make sure they can perpetrate dastardly deeds, the power elite passes laws to further legalize all sorts of invasive technologies to spy on people. This is because the elites believe the mass of people to be their enemies, opposed generally to the idea of increased global governance and government bigness in general.
We note how tax laws and other kinds of government financial mandates are increasingly stealing assets from everyday people. Vote-rigging (political corruption generally) along with merciless taxation and overwhelming domestic spying capabilities all conspire to attack the larger mass of citizenry and weaken resistance to plans for what has been called a new world order.
In each case, those behind these manipulations have tended to present a rationale – what we call a dominant social theme. But as we have pointed out in this article, increasingly such justifications are lacking.
The powers-that-be have decided when it comes to certain strategies they hardly have to justify themselves anymore. One can make the argument that such a position is arrogant – or one can propose that those at the top are actually panicked by what we call the "Internet Reformation."
Conclusion: Perhaps it is a combination. In any event, it is how a culture is overthrown and a republic is turned into a 21st century plantation.

The US has been just another plantation for decades, they are just now letting the slaves in on it.

The cops are coming.
Near by we have whats called the zone 5 police enforcment academy. Many mornings one can see thes young kids drilling like marines.
They march around the street in military cadence. What strikes you fisrt is that most of thes kids are dumbed down public schooled kids ,who are easily manipulated.
They are eager beavers and quite willing to get out on the street and start "protecting and serving".
Its gonna get ugly

It's about individual responsibility and non-participation. On an individual level we must take responsibility for every decision we make - things we purchase, jobs we take etc. Imagine if nobody decided to join the army or police force.
What was it Ghandi said: first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

This seems as good an opportunity to remind "Daily Bell" readers of the virtues of Offshore tax-havens for their personal affairs! I am not in the business, any more, but I have written about it (briefly) at:

The increased inheritance tax on farms and ranches smells rotten. I wonder if it is driven by Agenda 21, which attempts to shut people out of rural areas and into cities. If the farming community consists of mega-corporate players, food will become a weapon used against the public, ala shortages, hikes, leverage by government "handlers".

Death taxes are the pits, can't believe the US still has such a tax, little alone are increasing them in range and severity. Disgusting. The apathy in the US astounds me.

Since BOTH major Parties engage in voter fraud, it's very, very difficult for one Party to complain about voter fraud by the other Party. Voters then lose confidence in the system & the whole voting process degenerates. One of the 2 Major Parties needs to go away and since the Democrats will ALWAYS be for bigger government & higher taxes & more handouts (welfare), then it's the GOP that should die off to be replaced by a small government, Constitution-loving 3rd Party that will end this out-of-control welfare/warfare/police state we now live under.
Let the new 3rd Party NOT engage in voter fraud & let them drag into court the Democrats each time they get caught in voter fraud. Then little-by-little, confidence in the voting process might be restored. But I see no reasons why ANY voting machines ever need to be used. Go back to simple paper ballots marked & later counted by hand under the watchful eyes of observers to insure the vote counters are not cheating. Otherwise, I might also soon join the ranks of non-voters. As of now, i still consider it a civic duty to vote & vote informed.

This certainly represents my perspective of the current events and "state of the union" (or whats left of it)!
