The lights are about to go out on our American democracy, simultaneous with the economic destruction of the American middle class.
RE our democracy, watch this interview with Naomi Wolf,
author of Give Me Liberty – A Handbook for American Revolutionarieshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XgkeTanCGI&feature=email
You will hear Naomi say more than once, “This is going to scare you to death, because I’m scared to death.” But she is quick to assure us that there is still hope, if only ordinary Americans of all political stripes pull together and reject the fascist coup that is just a couple months from finalization. The U.S. in this moment is very much like Germany in February of 1933.
RE our economy, read A Futile Bailout as Darkness Falls on America
by Paul Craig Roberts,
former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration, Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page, and Contributing Editor of National Review.
Here is a striking excerpt:
According to statistician John Williams [http://www.shadowstats.com/section/commentaries] who measures inflation, unemployment, and GDP according to the methodology used prior to the Clinton regime’s corruption of these measures, the US unemployment rate is currently at 14.7 per cent and the inflation rate is 13.2 per cent. Consequently, real US GDP growth in the 21st century has been negative.
