Our birthright is under attack by the greatest civil war this country has been involved in. A civil war of a political nature designed to eliminate the middle class and install a despotic monarchy. We refer to the process of this civil war as the dumbing of American. in reality it is the stupidifacation of America
If you’ve learn nothing else in life about politics you must learn and retain this. “They know you’re stupid, because they made you stupid and will continue to treat you as so!”
I know, you think you’re not, I know at one time I did and still do, but with every revelation in the news on politics I discover how little I know. They continue to prove that I and all of us are stupid and they do it to us again.
We use the phrase the “dumbing of America” to excuse their actions but simply its been the stupidifacation of America (I know stupidifacation isn’t a word, but it really describes what their doing) first by eliminating civics in our schools and then by eliminating free education. The founding fathers knew that the success of a democracy relied on education.
Education is the enemy of the despot, the communist (as currently defined,) any fascist government, a Monarchy, the rich and the far right. Many true conservatives do not subscribe to those beliefs of the far right wing politics.
During a recent conversation with one of my sons I came to understand what has happen. He had no clue as the workings of how demand drives supply, wages, employment, consumerism, quality of life and freedom. More importantly how elections and political beliefs affect him and his family.
Where does one start when trying to explain our stupidifacation? Taxes? Infrastructure? Laws? Supreme court? Rights? The democracy? Education?
How about current issues. The current dilemma started some 30 years ago wrecking havoc on the democracy. Americans where sold a bill of goods by an actor hired to portray a great president. He claimed that the most feared words were “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you…”
With this start we were lead to believe that government was bad for us. After all they provided us with roads, schools, hospitals, airports, ocean ports, a power grid; they kept the poor from starving, the mentally ill from being a drain on society. Government provided protection from criminals, invasions fought fires, and gave us a place to rest and relax in the form of parks.
The reach of government allowed America to compete in the worlds economies by leveling the playing field with tariffs and taxes that kept other nations from dumping their good on our shores and putting American workers on the unemployment rolls.
These taxes were a shared expense divided across the whole nation to provide for the nation. Referred to as the commons. We took care of our selves.
Trade was free between nations, and where a nation would restrict our products we would charge a tariff against a similar product protecting our workers. This was the feared government Ronald Regan spoke of. As he was trained to say from the script he was given to read.
I’m sorry if you don’t believe this, but why would he, a man elected as the head of government, charged with protecting our constitution, democracy want to destroy it?
In those thirty years we’ve seen our country fail. Job loss at a rate not experience since our parents and grandparents time. Giveaways of our nation’s roads, water systems, power systems those things that exist for the common good.
Taxes and tariffs reduced to a point where a greater portion of our wages feed the gap created by these cuts. While the far right continues to give away our birthright to those, who are only interested in their wealth.
Over the course of the next dairies, I hope to make the argument or case that they made you stupid, and they know it. They will use this knowledge to return this nation to the monarchy that they longed for since the 1800’s.
