It Takes Two: Vote Out The Bums (VOTB)

Posted in Politics, Vote Out The Bums at 6:40 pm by Administrator

We’ve all heard a friend’s divorce story. Most of us realize that as one sided as the story is, the other partner’s story may be just as bad or maybe worse! Apply that idea to the U.S. and Global politics.

Why would Hugo Chavez call President Bush “the devil”? Why was his U.N. speech met with applause? The people applauding knew that Bush’s America tired to oust President Chavez in the 2002 coup. Chavez mentioned Noam Chomsky’s book Hegemony or Survival: American’s Quest for Global Dominance in his speech. That gives the other side of the story. Gustavo de Greiff, a constitutional law expert at the Colegio de Mexico, said Chavez’s ouster was “a coup that followed a model we have seen very often in this region.” He was talking about a U.S. model.

Bipartisan Empire Building efforts have been around for more than a century. Recent presidents, as righteous as they seem are just as guilty. Presidential cabinet positions find their way to corporate America. Whether it is the oil companies, infrastructure building engineering/construction firms or consumer corporations. All are globally motivated by greed for the few. This same corporate America has branded every U.S. citizen as an Ugly American.

The following must-read list will open your eyes and begin to give the other side of the U.S. Global politics story. Two things the reader must realize. Corporate America owns the media. And the U.S. state department or any other governmental agency will deny everything and anything alluding to negative U.S. Global politics.

Read these books. Check their sources. Google the ideas stated. You will enter a world of deception, manipulation and corruption that reads like an encyclopedia of intrigue.

What are the Bush’s ties to terrorists? In the John Perkins book Confessions of an Economic Hitman you’ll find out. You can YouTube Perkins name for shorter versions. Topics covered include how money is funneled from the World Bank or the IMF to huge corporation and financial families – the three pillars of Empire Building: corporate, banks and politicians.

Lindsey Williams only touches on our oil foreign policy. But you’ll hear Kissinger’s name mentioned again. This is an eight (8) part series with each part about 10 minutes long. There is some repetition, but he gives new information in each part. Be patient and you’ll begin to understand why gasoline and the price of oil are skyrocketing.

How are George W. Bush and Harken Energy connected? Or how the Bushs made a fortune in oil.

Smedley Butler’s book, War is a Racket, explains how profits are recorded in dollars and losses counted in lives. He says that war is conducted for the benefit of a very few at the expense of the many. He concludes that out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

For a recent history of Empire Building read the article by Professor James Petras. His piece called “Military or Market-Driven Empire Building: 1950-2008” was published April 29, 2008. It is lengthly and indepth research. It can be found at this web site.

Shooting the Moon by David Harris exposes the lies surrounding the 1898 invasion of Panama. “Just once in its 225 years of formal national existence has the United States ever invaded another country and carried its ruler back to the United States to face trial and imprisonment for violations of American law committed on that ruler’s own native foreign turf.” In large part, Shooting the Moon is the tale of the creative investigators and lawyers who made the case against Noriega.

Most of us are not “Ugly Americans” but we are naive about the history of our foreign policy. We should know both sides of the story.

We are also innocent of the international atrocities done in the name of the U.S. We didn’t pollute the Ecuadorian Amazon region. We didn’t form coups to overthrow governments in Venezuela, Indonesia, Cuba or anywhere else. We don’t exploit the peoples of developing countries. We don’t have any grand oil scheme. Our government or corporate America did and does!

American citizens are guilty of electing politicians that allow national and international atrocities to happen. Politicians bloated with power and allusions of building a Global Empire allow this mayhem to continue. They allow corporations, financial institutions and mercenaries to blackmail and control countries and their leaders. When these control options fail, politicians send in our Armed Services under the guise of defending our freedoms. That freedom excuse couldn’t be further from the truth. (Just listen to Rush. He tells you how we’re losing our freedoms everyday!)

A way to stop this insane Global ruse is to Vote Out The Bums. Vote out every incumbent, every election. Corporations will loose their strangle hold on presidential cabinet positions. The World Bank, IMF and other financial institutions won’t be able to bribe for political influence. Most importantly, we’ll stop loosing our soldiers in manufactured wars. VOTB

VOTB and tell the rest of the world that we the citizens of the U.S. don’t approve of what politicians and corporate America is doing to their countires.
