US WELL ON THE ROAD TO TYRANNY

The last few years we saw Congress and the Supreme court marginalized. Checks and balances are no longer effective. Presidential branch trumps the others, free to purge and punish all opposition and reward loyal cronies.

We've seen our political system turned into a joke that the whole world laughs at now. It's never been easier to determine what people want to hear the most and then tell it to them.

If you lie, that's better, because there is no longer any truth so you go with the story that sounds better. Facebook looks for what makes you fear and feel anxious, it represents a key authoritarian tool.

We all own that.

Yes we are. And it will be urban liberals who will be the ones on the losing side.

This is the fundamental reason why I consider liberals to be stupidly ignorant. Well, more like so uneducated in what is necessary to realize the reality I just stated they pretty much qualify to be stupidly ignorant.

Funny you're just realizing this now, instead of 20 years ago when you should have.

OBSERVING


Oh bullshit.

Where was the declaration of war against Afghanistan? Iraq? Syria? Libya? Pakistan? Yemen? Somalia?

"The rise of tyranny"? We've been in it for decades. People have been warning about this for decades. Google, Facebook, and Twitter actively censor political speech. Our government constantly lies to us about why they go to war. Our "news" media is relentless propaganda in support of the criminal syndicate that calls itself the government.

Where's the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? What was the "humanitarian crisis" that Qaddafi was "about to cause"? Why was our nation bombing Syria?

Shit, we just had a coup attempt against Trump because he's an outsider. Complete silence on that. We had a previous president that used the intelligence agencies spy on candidate Trump in an attempt to get that butcher Clinton elected, a piece of shit that voted for the Iraq War. NOW you worry about tyranny. We don't live in a democratic system, we don't live in a republic - unless a banana republic is a republic to you.

It's has to get so fucking obvious to get you to be "observing". Well, here we are - 4 trillion dollar bailout to the banking system, neither party will allow us to exit the wars in Afghanistan or Syria - even though you have no fucking idea why we're there. It's been a dictatorship for a shockingly long time - but finally you're "observing" as if the obvious hasn't been obvious for years, but finally it's obvious to you - finally. Finally, people like you are starting to "observe".

Yes they are. They are working almost near perfectly.

Just because the outcomes of which don't reflect your ideologically driven expectations does not prove that 'checks and balances are no longer effective'.

Sometimes one's bias is out in the open when they won't state the big truths.
RepCon scum G.W.Bush & his scum RepCons killed 4801 American servicemen based on lie about WMD.


I mostly just ignore you because of the constant "RepCon scum". It may be a prejudice, but I feel people that talk in propagandist fashion ought to be ignored.
