Lincoln's vision? Blindsided
©Leslie Blanchard

"...on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure." Lincoln

Ladies and Gentlemen we are again in the midst of battle upon this continent. A tense battle of Ideologies which leave many wounded, some dead (Dr. George Tiller MD), many disenfranchised, hopeless, and many more that are starving in the land of opportunity. We may argue that everyone immersed in this battle actually believe that their ideas are what's right for America. Personally I believe that quite a few of the key players in this struggle are mainly concerned with their wallets, and not what is best for the people. And with sadness I must admit that what Lincoln feared most, has already occurred, " that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." But it has...our system of Governance has become "Corporatism". A merger of Big Government and big business, it's become a system in which Monopolistic corporations and bankers are the Government. The government which now builds and warranties cars. There is no distinguishable line between the two, business and government.

We abolished slavery to bring that freedom to every American. Tho women were not yet included, and we know that bigotry and racism were not truthfully addressed until the 1960's, when they became mandated. Still to this very day these subjects divide us. And that's the way the government wants it. They want the class war, the race war, the political war which we fight everyday, they want it to keep building, thereby dividing us. They bombard our airwaves with all sorts of terror alerts, not the standard terror alert, but subtle seemingly harmless commercials. Do you have "public anxiety disorder", what about those thieves that are just sitting in your bushes to break in on your teen-aged daughter as soon as you leave the house- better get an alarm system. Everyday on the news we are warned of trans -fat, mad cows, too little Vit. D, Pig Flu, Bird Flu, SARS, West Nile Virus, deafness due to ipods, the dangers of video games, the carpel tunnel syndrome from Twitter, Dengue fever, epidemics, pandemics, and on and on. Keep us scared, keep us distrustful of our neighbors, isolate and divide us so we can't compare notes.

But those of us who take the blinders from our eyes are seeing it all around us. Many of us have come to acknowledge that there can't be great wealth, without great poverty. We common folk are deep in the trenches of this class war raging throughout Amerika. We stay home more, we buy mostly necessities which are never on sale or fairly priced. We live in fear of all the crap that the media and the advertisers throw at our ears, we also live in fear of losing our homes, our cars, our jobs, our "worth".

This is where Corporatism has delivered us. Free trade has masqueraded as a good policy, while what it has really done has been to control and enslave the the world. Big corporations have holdings in nearly every country on earth. Governments have monetary control over one another. What is Amerika going to do if/when China calls in her debt, when they want payment in full from us? Free-trade has never been free. It is simply a way for monopolizing businesses to move resources and people as they wish, no rules, no regulation, no protection for the workers, all to maximize profit for the leaders. Trickle down economics has left the vast majority of Americans, and other world citizens bankrupt of dreams, and holding on white knuckled to what pittance we have. We have more Americans living a third world life style than ever before. It's the dirty little secret we all keep inside, many afraid to ever give thought to it- let alone to speak it, as if speaking it might just cause us to fall below the poverty level ourselves.

Free-trade reminds me of good ol' George Orwell, I mean it sounds good, stick the word free in front of any other wood- it's going to sound good. Free horse shit- oh good I don't have to buy fertilizer for my recession garden! But in this case "free" equals "no regulation". It's just a way to eliminate pesky rules and restrictions so that corporations can rape us and the Earth more than they already do. Freedom in free trade speak means only freedom for the corporations and a varying degree of slavery for all of us. In eliminating these rules and oversight they have really created one new law- the only law that really matters in today's world- and the world we're on the verge of being totally engulfed in. That law proclaims that business, politicians, corporations, (the real rulers) can do whatever the hell they want, to whoever the hell they want. It doesn't matter who suffers, it doesn't even matter if people die- sometimes death can be very cost effective.

If we don't wake up soon, if we don't cowboy up and shout the truth to one another, if we don't band together very very soon- it will be to late. Take a look at the world around you-it is becoming a global feudalism. We're led around by so many conflicting truths and lies that we're not sure which way is up. Global warming is happening- if you listen to certain scientists. On the other hand those scientist over there say global warming is a hoax. Think about it folks- whose payroll are these scientists on? It doesn't really matter which side you believe as long as you spend your money or ruin your credit. Spend it on solar cells, or spend it on Hummers- but spend. Because all the money goes to the same place, it goes to Corporatism. And unless we start using our own minds, our own inner knowledge, and see through the hazy mist of the monopolistical cloud, we're sunk. All of us. The wing-nuts and the liberals. The common woman in Amerika and the common woman in Nigeria , we all either rise together or sink together.

So, who are some of the big guns on the other side of this war? I'll provide you with the names of some of top echelon, study their history and always remember to follow the money. The FDA yeah-think of all the money big pharma acquires by making prescriptions for diseases that don't exist until they make the drug. i.e. Paxil for social anxiety disorder. Talk to my mother-out-law (since legally my partner & I can't be married she can't be my mother-in-law), but talk to her about how Celabrex killed her father. How much money did the FDA get for fast-tracking that? Then there's the World Bank, Council on Foreign Relations, World Trade Org., the World Health Org., the International Monetary Fund, the EPA (who benefits from both sides of the global warming debate), Center for Disease Control, The Rockefeller Group (a private corporation dedicated to excellence in commercial real estate, real estate services, and telecommunications), the U.N., all the so-called intelligence agencies around the world, NASA, the Club of Rome-(is a global think tank that deals with a variety of international political issues. Here's an example of their mind-set which raised considerable public attention in 1972 with its report The Limits to Growth. In 1993, it published a followup called The First Global Revolution. According to this book, "It would seem that humans need a common motivation, namely a common adversary, to organize and act together in the vacuum; such a motivation must be found to bring the divided nations together to face an outside enemy, either a real one or else one invented for the purpose....The common enemy of humanity is man....Democracy is no longer well suited for the tasks ahead" and "In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine etc., would fit the bill." ), many administrations at our large and prestigious universities, Bilderberg which is described as "the high priests of globalisation" "transatlantic power elite who holds secret conferences" with secret guest lists, and whose roots were in Nazi Germany, NATO, the trilateral Commission, Yale's Skull & Bones Society,. The world is shaped by to the wishes of the corporatists who work together through these and many other organizations.

It's hard to go against the grain. To doubt things that "experts" swear are true. It's becoming harder day by day-especially for our children. We all agree that education in this country sucks-unless you have enough money to send your kid to a private school (which are training camps for Corporatism). But public education is a joke. If you need proof of that, think about how little we pay our teachers-some of which are living below the poverty level. It's to the benefit of the world leaders to keep on dumbing us down. Keeping us barefoot, pregnant, and scared- so that we believe they are the only ones that can fix things.

WRONG, you and I are the only ones who can fix things, "we the people". Where to start? We've already started with this document. Now each of us need to delve into these groups, these people, and spread the word. Print out what you find- pass these hand-outs around, form groups, discuss, shout from the rooftops. Grassroots can and does work. I can no longer march, M.S. won't let me protest in warm weather, it also jumbles and disconnects my speech. But I can write and inform. Join me, pass out leaflets, talk to people, let's render therefore to Lincoln the things which are Lincoln's.
