American Capitalism Gone With a Whimper

It must be
said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent
into Marxism is happening with breathtaking speed, against the
backdrop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader,
I meant people.

True, the
situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century,
especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds
was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But
we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms
and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into
the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons
were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace
for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of
their elites and betters.

First, the
population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard
education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics.
Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama
in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their
"right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing
burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around
and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy".
Pride blinds the foolish.

Then their
faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of
thousands of different "branches and denominations"
were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their
televangelists and top protestant mega-preachers were more then
happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning"
side of one pseudo-Marxist politician or another. Their flocks
may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning"
side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes
for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously
liberalized in America.

The final
collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed
in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending
and money printing has been record setting, not just in America’s
short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then
another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at
best will resemble the Weimar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These
past two weeks have been the most breathtaking of all. First came
the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine
tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their
thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars.
These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary
street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beaten our
own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

These men,
of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees
picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who
are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in
one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights,
duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again,
congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.

Then came
Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motors) president step
down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader,
in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president
now has the power, the self-given power, to fire CEOs and we can
assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither,
go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

So it should
be no surprise, that the American president has followed this
up with a "bold" move of declaring that he and another
group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire
automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile
policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily
try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister
Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK’s Blair,
not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster.
Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western-sponsored
horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so
let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly
of their own pride.

Again, the
American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a "freeman"
whimper.

So, should
it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled
Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that
would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair"
maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private
companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks,
a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst
the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that
of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked-down-upon
life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist
enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only
affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive
and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company
or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

The Russian
owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully
at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing
the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest
while there is still value left.

The proud
American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating
his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is.
The world will only snicker.
