So now we work for them: Scary new national ad from Citizens Against Government Waste
Citizens Against Government Waste-or C.A.G.W.- has produced a new campaign add that should scare the beejeezus out of us all! It deals with the fact that all the money we have recently borrowed for so called stimulus came from the Chinese.
The name of the video is "Chinese Professor". It shows a smug Chinese college professor-from the not so distant future- lecturing his students about how three great civilizations fell,these being the Greek, Roman and American civilizations. His premise is they fell because they forgot the "principles" that made them great!
Never was a truer statement made-especially as it concerns present day America-this country in recent years has almost totally abandoned the principles upon which it was founded. These being the principle of limited government,almost unbridled individual freedom and the freedom for anyone or organization with a good idea and capital to create products and services for profit.
We became the envy because individuals were free to dream,create, and strive for the stars without interference from the government. We became the envy of the world because the government got off the backs of the people and allowed them to work, produce and create and keep the fruits of their labor for themselves. We became the envy of the world because individuals were allowed to pool their capital and create goods and services that satisfied the needs of the public at large without the government taxing, and, regulating it to death.
Today however is a different story now the -all knowing- government seeks to guide and control every aspect of our lives. Those in power think that government creates jobs,and that, throwing money at any problem will solve it. That basically is the whole premise of the failed stimulus,that the government can borrow tons of money from China,take over the economy,dictate to the individual, and miraculously the economy will heal itself and prosperity will break out everywhere.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. We have began the trip down the road to fascism-the condition where corporations are privately owned but dictated to by the government-and it cannot end well.
The Chinese are becoming what we used to be at the beginning of the twentieth century. They are becoming the economic powerhouse of the world and they must be laughing their arses off at us.
If their is not a radical change in the direction of this country we will indeed be working for them,not as free men, but as slaves,and they will be laughing all the way to the bank!!
