Diogenes Middle Finger – Every year thousands of Americans make pilgrimages to Washington DC to marvel at statues, historic re-enactments and to reminisce on the over blown accomplishments of our public leaders. Some like, Senator Chuck Schumer, have been a fixture on Capitol Hill for decades while brow beating the public with their over inflated sense of self importance. How is it that these politicians enter their offices making ends meet on government salaries and, yet like Harry Reid, end up being millionaires after several terms? We never hear any elected official mention in today’s public arena that they are a servant of the people when in fact they are. However, you would never know this by the way they enact unpopular bills and laws that simply benefit special interest groups or completely contradict the vast majority of opinion.
The illusion of government is essential in dazzling the probing eye of the public who is easily impressed by the seeming credentials of the cult of personality leadership continually canonized by the state controlled media. In this single element of deception the illusion intentionally propagated by the government becomes the opiate of the masses. Even in failure the apathetic public and easily swayed voters continually elect the same corrupt leaders who failed again and again and again thanks to the regurgitated rhetoric.
One truth that is steadily denied and lost upon the people with consistency is that the federal government makes absolutely nothing. It taxes, regulates, and confiscates from the people and from private sector business in order to perpetuate itself. It is the private enterprise that generates an economy and supports society, not the government, yet they would have us believe the other way.
When President Obama tells a TV audience on the John Stewart Show that the IRS did not cause a scandal despite evidence to the contrary, the lie reassures the simple minds. When the president blatantly defies the US Constitution and there is no response from a politicized Justice Department you have a compromised government from within.
As our federal government regulates and enacts laws that deprive us of our freedoms and allow our sovereignty to be stolen by hostile foreign influences right out in the open. In the very midst of this coup on the American way of life, the dull minded electorate, the useful idiots of liberty robbing sabotage served up by the Obama regime still refuse to see the illusion for what it really is. The illusion is far more seductive than the reality of destruction that has been waged against a teetering America. A smooth talking president is much more acceptable then a rational appraisal of the inherent failures and blatant violations of the administration that this cult of personality represents.
So the rats scurry around and the sheep go on grazing as the nation continues to topple. Read more at DMS.
