Communist or Fascist: Voting to Elect a Dictator

Emma Goldman
“If voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal.”
Emma Goldman

"The Republicans think the Democrats are socialists while the Democrats think the Republicans are fascists. Sadly, they are both correct!"
-- Michael Rivero

The election charade is the opening act for what comes during the term ahead - no matter who wins, all the infrastructure is already in place for martial law to be declared and the installing of a dictator! This will happen at latest mid-term, by which time a full-on deflationary depression will be underway - but could take place as early as right after the November elections due to riots protesting the results. At that time it will finally become obvious to the masses what was actually behind the NDAA and  other draconian legislation, as well as the hundreds of FEMA camps scattered throughout the country. The only choice being exercised by those turning out to vote for Obamney is whether the dictatorship will be communist or fascist in orientation - either way, life will change radically in the coming term!

Despite a lackluster performance in the first debate, both demographics and polling results indicate a comfortable victory for the incumbent, who continues on his course to implement a populist agenda! However, should the powers that operate out of sight whilst retaining control over both candidates decide to subvert the will of the electorate (as was the case in 2004 through voting-machine fraud) and elect the challenger instead, this would lead to certain backlash from a rapidly awakening public. They may decide to go along with such a plan anyway, knowing that whoever is in power at the time would be forced into declaring martial law, thereby activating the needed elements for dictatorship. This is a classic case of heads I win, tails you lose, utilized by those accustomed to rigging the game!

History will record that the incumbent has as much Kenyan ancestry as did any of his predecessors! Evidence surfacing reveals his American heritage through both parents - a fact he has kept hidden until the time is opportune, since in a close election his illegitimate birth may turn out to be a factor. More importantly, his communist-influenced upbringing and a revered real father with Marxist roots may prove to be a great deal more challenging to explain than a youthful affair by his unwed mother!

In three weeks the masses will take part in a quadrennial charade - unaware that a vote for Obamney is nothing more than an exercise in futility in a rigged game in which a few win - and all the rest lose! But a growing number are gradually awakening to the fact that participating in such a charade merely lends legitimacy to a corrupt and tyrannical system, one that will collapse when support is withdrawn. The powers-that-be know that their corrupt system will end the day we all fail to give it our support!

Voting for the lesser of two evils (if there were such a thing) is nevertheless agreeing to vote for evil! Worse - participating in a dysfunctional game in which we are steadily deprived of more and more of our natural rights amounts to nothing more than being willing accomplices to our own enslavement!

Whether or not you fall victim to the urge to elect your new slave-master this election cycle, beware of falling into the trap set by the elites by rioting if your horse should fail to cross the finish line first! Whoever occupies the White House in January will more than likely become America's first dictator!

Don’t Vote For Evil

Back during the George W. Bush neocon regime, President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela in his UN speech summed up George W. Bush for the world. I am quoting Chavez from memory, not verbatim. “Yesterday standing at this same podium was Satan himself, speaking as if he owned the world. You can still smell the sulfur.”
Chavez is one of the American right-wing’s favorite bogyman, because Chavez helps the people instead of bleeding them for the rich, which is Washington’s way. While Washington has driven all but the one percent into the ground, Chavez cut poverty in half, doubled university enrollment, and provided health care and old age pensions to millions of Venezuelans for the first time.
Little wonder he was elected to a fourth term as president despite the many millions of dollars Washington poured into the election campaign of Chavez’s opponent.
While Washington and the EU preach neoliberalism–the supremacy of capital over labor–South American politicians who reject Washington’s way are being elected and reelected in Venezuela, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Bolivia.
It was the Ecuadoran government, not Washington, that had the moral integrity to grant political asylum to WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange. The only time Washington grants asylum is when it can be used to embarrass an opponent.
In contrast to the leadership that is emerging in South America as more governments there reject the traditional hegemony of Washington, the US political elite, whether Republican or Democrat, are aligned with the rich against the American people.
The Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, has promised to cut taxes on the rich, taxes which are already rock bottom, to block any regulation of the gangsters in the financial arena, and to privatize Social Security and Medicare.
Privatizing Social Security and Medicare means to divert the people’s tax dollars to the profits of private corporations. In Republican hands, privatization means only one thing: to cut the people’s benefits and to use the people’s tax dollars to increase the profits in the private sector. Romney’s policy is just another policy that sacrifices the people to the one percent.
Unfortunately, the Democrats, if a lesser evil, are still an evil. There is no reason to vote for the reelection of a president who codified into law the Bush regime’s destruction of the US Constitution, who went one step further and asserted the power to murder US citizens without due process of law, and who has done nothing to stop the exploitation of the American people by the one percent.
As Gerald Celente says in the Autumn Issue of the Trends Journal, when confronted with the choice between two evils, you don’t vote for the lesser evil. You boycott the election and do not vote. “Lesser or greater, evil is evil.”
If Americans had any sense, no one would vote in the November election. Whoever wins the November election, it will be a defeat for the American people.
An Obama or Romney win stands in stark contrast with Chavez’s win. Here is how Lula da Silva, the popular former president of Brazil summed it up: “Chavez’s victory is a victory for all the peoples of Latin America. It is another blow against imperialism.” Washington, making full use of the almighty dollar, was unable to buy the Venezuelan election.
How will a Romney or Obama win be summed up? The answer will be in terms of which candidate is best for Israel’s interest; which is best for Wall Street’s interest, which is best for agribusiness; which is most likely to attack Iran; which is most likely to subject economic and war protesters to indefinite detention as domestic extremists.
The only people who will benefit from the election of either Romney or Obama are those associated with the private oligarchies that rule America.
