They're Coming For You!

Recently I became involved in a heated discussion at The Gaelic Starover with a poster who suggested a national burn your voter registration card day as a protest against vote scams perpetrated by Republicans in a bid to seize control of the country with a small minority of the population being allowed to vote. They achieved this because they knew that most people don't vote in off year elections, so they seized the oppurtunity to put their people in key positions at the state and local level. Voter rolls were erroneously purged, questionable procedures such as touch screen voting were promoted as a way to prevent another "Florida", the list goes on of the right wing dirty trick squads abuse of the election process. The hope by the poster was that Americans would see this protest and become outraged and demand change. Yeah, right.
Korporate Amerika owns the media as well as the Congress, there is no guarantee that such a protest wouldn't be potrayed as a bunch of "liberal whackos" by the Korporate media, who tried to the same with Cindy Sheehan and her supporters in their protest against the lies the Bush Administration used to the start the war in Iraq. Hell, the Korporate media was complicit in helping to spread those lies.
Recently, Bush opened the borders to Mexico, allowing amnesty for illegal immigrants. He did this because Latinos generally vote Republican, therefore flooding the voter rolls (as well as the job market). Which makes one wonder, "What are all the FEMA camps for now?" There are 84 of them, fully staffed and operational, and empty, throughout the US. Originally, there purpose was to house illegal immigrants should there be a flood of them coming across the border from Mexico. What purpose do they serve now?
One only needs to look back in history to see where this country is heading. Bush's family , his grandfather and great grandfather helped fund the Nazi regime in Germany, and had assets seized under the trading with the enemy act during WWII. Bush has used the same excuse to invade Iraq that Hitler used to invade Poland. He has used 9/11 to pass the Patriot Act in the same way that Hitler used the Reichstag Fire to pass the Enabling Act.
Listen to Rush Limbaugh, or Sean Hannity, read their books, and you see a picture of who they blame for all the faults of this nation. They accuse liberals of being "unpatriotic traitors" just as Goebbels blamed the Jews. Economic problems are blamed on liberal policies just as economic problems in postwar Germany were blamed on Jewish bankers. Anyone see a pattern here?
Of course, all this is a "conspiracy theory" and liberals don't believe in conspiracies until, like Watergate, they are actually proven. By then, it will be too late. But hey, maybe they can console themselves with the fact that they'll be burning off all that body fat doing forced labor. Just look at how thin the Auschwitz survivors were when rescued by American troops at the end of WWII.
But don't say you haven't been warned.
