#1 Bailout or Buyout? (Call me a Troofer, but.....)09-22-2008, 05:40 PM
I've always felt like the powers that be in this country. Republican or Democrat, they all have the same goal. Endgame: Communism. Democrats are the fast track to communism, we all know that. The Republican party is the slower track, the way to make the citizens feel they have a choice. The general public will follow their leader to the grave, Dem orRepub.
In order to take the nation down the path of communism, the government must take control of every aspect of our lives.
They've alredy taken control of education, for all intents and purposes. 80% of professors in colleges are hammering wealth redistribution into these young'uns heads every day.
We have a welfare system keeping families dependant on the government for generations. Keeping minorities classified as victims so they won't expect any better for themselves.
We've spent God knows how much money to bail out airlines time and time again, only to see them file bankruptcy. What happened to all that money?
Now we're "bailing out" huge finanacial institutions. My own belief is that the government is buying out rather than bailing out. Do you really believe politicians are "loaning" these institutions all this money without being able to pull strings behind the scenes? I don't. The federal government doesn't pass up an opportunity to take control of anything. Haven't since Lincoln.
Next will be the auto industry. They'll cry help, get huge chinks of our money and then file for bankruptcy. They'll be followed by the farmers, who won't get a fucking thing. We'll import all of our food, giviing us closer ties to other communist nations.
After that is health care. Face it people. One day we will have socialised health care. It may well be a Republican that gives it to us.
There is already talk of nationalizing the oil industry. I believe that is the hang up on drillnig here. They have to figure out how to control that from D.C. Once they do, you'll see the oil start pumping and an initial drop in gas prices, followed by a neverending gradual increase. Think stamps.
Am I crazy, or does anyone else see this?I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

The government will never let these banks fail again. It's why we'll never have another depression. The gov did nothing for the banks in '29. They won't let that happen again.Be Not Afraid.

Take gun control, my personal favorite issue. What's worse, the FOPA and import bans or Brady and the Assault Weapons Ban? Oh that's right, Republicans love Brady and the AWB is gone. To top it off, back to the Democrats being incompetent bit, the AWB was so pathetically written and the "Democrats are going to take our guns" feelings so strong, that it probably got millions of people interested in semi-autos who wouldn't have been otherwise. Clinton should get a medal for all the black rifles he helped to sell.
You could end private gun ownership in the US in fifty years with only minor amendments to existing laws. You're lucky the Democrats have spent the better part of twenty years distracted by assault weapons.
I got side tracked a bit there, but basically what it comes down to is that while the Democrats may advertise a faster path to epically big government, the Republicans are the ones who deliver it. Either way though, that's what we're going to get because it is in government's nature to grow, justify its own existence, and grow some more.
