The "market" is not a tornado or an earthquake; it's not an outbreak of hostilities between two nations; it's not a nuclear accident or a tsunami. It's the crowd-sourcing of pessimism or optimism about our financial future by a lot of people whose individual judgments are strongly influenced by other people with a significant stake in shaping the future the way they want it to be.
The market does not control America. Americans control America.
Here's the score on the Standard & Poors credit rating that has made the markets bob up and down like a kids Duncan Yo-Yo.
In this case, those people are primarily far right-wing politicians whom the moderates, the liberals and the progressives have permitted to frame the national economic issue as debt rather than revenues. And when the frame the problem, you control the answer.
No one really cares whose fault this is anymore other than politicians who want to be re-elected and I'm including my own '08 Presidential candidate in that. The people who need to take the conversation back and who should be framing the economic issue as one of jobs, not debt, are us.
That's us. We're in control. But as long as we allow ourselves to fight with one another over federal budget table-scraps (funding for the arts, Planned Parenthood and education) the people who control the meal - the financial industry and media on the right and the left - will continue to serve themselves heaping helpings while we deliver up to them the odd piece of filet mignon that falls from their crowded plates.
Business, too, has a stake in this. Not the businesses that make money on money but those that need consumers. General Motors, Wal-Mart, General Foods. They transport, clothe and feed the nation. And for the nation to purchase their goods, it must be employed. So this sunny Southern California morning, I'm asking as many people in positions powerful enough to change the national conversation to think long and hard about doing so.
I have to disagree with the author. America IS broke. The congress, and the government itself are only part of the problem.
If we were to replace the entire government with new politicians and appointees who have not yet been corrupted by the Judeo-Capitalist system, things would improve a little, but only for a short while. In a few years, maybe a few decades, we'd be right back where we started. Replacing a flat tire with a bald tire only means a few more miles before it too needs replacing.
Many politicians start their careers young, enthusiastic, and clean. Then they get exposed to corruption, bribes, kick backs, and "campaign contributions" from large corporations and they succumb to the temptation, and WE THE PEOPLE are once again screwed.
When a system is as broke as this one is, the only thing to do is replace it. National Socialism is the only hope the European-American has to survive. Without it, we'll be swallowed up in the ever-increasing melting pot of non-White races and cultures. Without a common history, culture, and traditions, we will end up like the dinosaurs. We'll be nothing more than an exhibit in one of their museums entitled, "The Great Oppressors Of Our People".
So what are you going to do White man? Are you going to go out on your backs in the mud, or are you going to fight? The ANP needs your support. No more hemming and hawing. No more procrastinating. Soon it will be too late. It could be as soon as 2020. It's not too late yet, but it could be sooner than you think.
