After our nation illegally/immorally invaded and destroyed much of Iraq, we set up a mega city for our new embassy.
The Bush gang named it "The Green Zone," a fortified city in itself. The invaders/occupiers were able to keep most of the angry insurgents away from it, as our corporate predators made a meal out of the reconstruction of a once vibrant and economically solvent sovereign nation. Forget about the fact that we got rid of Saddam Hussein, as he was just another one in the long line of gangster thugs that our empire placed in power years earlier.
This Two Party/One Party empire has succeeded in their plans for my beloved country. They created, over the span of decades, a Feudal Green Zone for their plunder and pillage. Yes, Lincoln may have freed the slaves, but he or No Other leader we have had was willing or able to free the serfs. Our embedded politicians from both parties, with the aid of the embedded mainstream media, have made sure of that.
We have a class of super-rich that have even outshined those of the infamous Gilded Age (1870- 90) when the serfs had to scramble to stay afloat. Right to work laws and restrictions on collective bargaining, among other actions, have destroyed the union movement so much that less than 15 percent of private-sector workers belong to a union.
Our military spending has risen since the (so-called) end of the Cold War to over 50 percent of our federal tax revenue.
Need I go on?
Instead, we have my fellow Americans fighting over this phony electoral scam... each and every election cycle. Yes, this writer knows that the Far Right Wing, AKA Republicans, are the "evil of two lessers" and more obvious in their wrath. Yet, look at my ideals in the paragraph above this one, and ask yourself: "Will the Democrats support them?" The sad answer is that they, the Right Wing party, will not!
So, each election cycle will bring out the anger and frustration of my fellow serfs... and the empire will keep churning along. Yes, because this new "Trump led" Far Right Wing is completely "off the reservation" so much that, with the cards we have been dealt, many of us may have no choice but to vote for the lesser evil to stop the momentum... but the bleeding will still continue until more serfs say "No More!"
Just one man's honest analysis.
