RICKY’S VIEW: NOTHING WILL CHANGE
The Reason Nothing Will Change Under an Obama Presidency
By Ricky Zipp
“Between the Republicans and the Democrats, there’s not a dime’s worth of difference.” – George C. Wallace, American politician, 1964.
Any serious student of America knows that American history is littered with massive crime and the deaths of millions upon millions of?innocent victims. As famous American historian, William Blum wrote: “If you flip over the rock of American foreign policy of the past century, this is what crawls out…invasions … bombings … overthrowing…governments … suppressing movements….for social change … assassinating….political leaders … perverting…elections … manipulating labor unions …manufacturing “news” … death squads …torture … biological warfare …depleted uranium … drug trafficking …mercenaries … It’s not a pretty picture. It is enough to give imperialism a bad name.”
Empires destroy freedom and start aggression. The USA has been involved with the creation of an empire since before 1848.
In 1861, Abraham Lincoln launched a war of aggression, killing 600,000 Americans, brothers killing brothers, brothers sisters, killing people who actually voted for Lincoln to protect them. The so called “Civil War” wasn’t about slavery. It was about States rights. If the war was about slavery, like the BS history books state, then why weren’t the slaves freed before the war started? Why did two Northern States have slaves up until two years after the war started? This type of hypocrisy is synonymous with American history.
The story is a long one that could never be filled in in a short column such as this. Read this if you want to know the truth: “The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History by Thomas E. Woods Jr” This book will open your eyes to what the truth is about American imperialism, politics, well, American history as it really is.
Consider, if you will, just a piece of the current situation; Obama has stated that he will not prosecute George Bush & Company for war crimes. Why? It’s obvious. Because the Democratic party voted with Bush for every single pro-war bill concerning the Afghan war and the Iraq war. Obama himself abstained many times because he knew that if he voted against these bills promoting, or prolonging the war, he would be finished within the Democratic Party itself. Even more so, any indictment against Bush and Company is an indictment against Obama’s own political party and his political lifeblood.
No. He knew that if he wanted to be president, he’d have to play the game. Now that he is president, he’s in way too deep. He has sold his soul and there’s no turning back. It’s been that way with every US president. When they got elected, people were happy….People celebrated. Soon, the celebrations ended and people were pissed off with more of the same. Think about it, name one US president in the last 50 years who didn’t bomb another country or start a war, or try to attack another country. Can’t do it because there’s no such president. Obama won’t break the mold.
Consider the fact that Obama has chosen Hillary Clinton – as pro-war as any Republican – as Secretary of State; named high ranking Republicans to his inner cabinet; kept on Bush’s appointment, Robert Gates, as Defense Secretary… The list goes on and on. Nope, there’s not one single anti-war politician in Obama’s inner circle. Think about what that means.
While you are thinking, here’s a test. Who said this?
“I want the Iranians to know that… we will attack Iran if it attacked Israel. In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.”
A) George W. Bush
B) Dick Cheney
C) Hillary Clinton
D) John McCain
Answer: C) Hillary Clinton. As much of a war-hawk as any American politician, Republican or Democrat.
Who said this?
“Hamas (is) a terrorist organization and the United States should not be dealing with them until they recognize Israel, renounce terrorism, and abide by previous agreements.”
A) Barack Obama
B) John McCain
C) Hillary Clinton
D) George W. Bush
Answer: A) Barack Obama. Sounds like every other American president in recent memory.
Just a small point, why should Hamas be forced to stick to any agreements with Israel? Israel has ignored at least 131 UN resolutions since 1967 telling her to get out of the West Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights, etc., etc., Why doesn’t Obama say anything about this? These reason why is, folks, Obama’s “Change” was a catch-copy… It has been used over and over in American politics, yet nothing changes.
Bill Clinton ran on a campaign of “Change”; So did Ronald Reagan; so did Jimmy Carter; and now, Barack Obama. Face facts, as with every other US president, nothing will change under an Obama presidency.
Of course the presidency is a problem, but the real problem with America, or any country for that matter, is a giant government out of control that wishes to dictate to the people how to live their lives. Understand that the purpose of government – all government is to expand. Regardless of the problem, the government’s answer is to expand and create new department’s and divisions.
While the scourge of large governments exists on this world (Socialist, Fascists, Communist, Democratic, etc), there will never be peace. It doesn’t matter to the War Machine who is the face of the government, trust that the inner workings do not change.? It matters not what the color of your skin is to the monster. To think otherwise is incredibly naive and foolish and shows an incredible lack of knowledge of history.
Don’t say that you weren’t warned; Very soon you will all be disillusioned with Barack Obama. It’s not a wild guess; it’s a merely a matter of history repeating itself.
