As American’s we’ve learned to embrace the contradictions we face between the things we say, things we’ve said, and its effects on our actual moral stances that we claim to care about. We understand the difference, the necessary gap. By this point everyone of us has implicitly lied, signing a way a long sheet of paper after claiming to have read and understood the whole thing: knowing full well we could not understand its complex entrapping rhetoric had we the free time to read it. We don’t mind this. Many Anti-Rick Perry supporters say “he’ll never be elected! he wanted to seceed the nation!” thinking this self-contradicting statement will hurt both his public opinion polls and his chances of winning primary. It can be argued that if the Anti-Rick Perrian is a remaining Obama Progressive Left supporter that the same statements can be made concerning Obama’s own re-election campaign, and that’s the key. We’ve all learned to realize that ‘politicians are just like people too’ and maybe some of the things they’ve previously said are like old facebook statuses… people are dynamic right? When it comes to wanting to like a candidate we can interpret the self-contradictory logic as part of his human quality.
Earlier today Rick Perry stood firm by his recent open borders policy issue affirming that in-state tuition should be given to illegal aliens if they’ve been living in the in-district house for more than 3 years. Rather than relying on typical policy platform to announce his stance, he is demonstrative and outspoken in what he does or doesn’t veto. By allowing education to be included as part of an economic package, and to be separated from rights of citizenry sets a new tone. It still sticks to the survival of the fittest bottom dollar, think globalization, package but it removes its conservative protectionist policy. The controversy of Rick Perry lies in his disregard for social political values (mexicans/blacks/abortions/hpv’s) but he is very firm in his neoliberal economic policy and his open border policys, and he has been very consistent in his pursuit of global investment opportunities since as early as 2007. Why should texans be offended to have their jobs taken away by somebody willing to do it cheaper and more efficient when it was texans who voted in Rick Perry to allow for the open border policy’s in the first place? It was the open borders NAFTA policy that from 1992-1997 encouraged 35 million immigrants to move to the US as Mexico was unable to compete with cheap corn prices.
It SHOULD come as no surprise then, that the bilderberg group representative Rick Perry, continues on course. It is controversial in light of being found to be controversial, in that a lot of lower class and middle class Texans thought they had voted somebody in to office that would make it easier for Texan citizens to work over non-texan citizens, not more difficult. This is emblematic of the cognitive dissonance most Americans face facing globalization continuing to elect somebody opening us up internationally as long as he’d wear a belt buckle and jeans.
Another odd thing to face in the future will be the discouraging news of the tech industry. We hope that through dominating facebook and google, as Americans we might be able to use tech innovations like apple to make us dominate the international market place. Little do we realize how international these companies are, or are becoming and how little of an effect ultimately it will have on a broader source of income for a large group of social classes. We will say “so the tech industry happened, then why is unemployment at a steady 20 percent?” Looking at Rick Perry who praised austin’s previous tech boom, saying, why can nobody get a decent sandwich or afford bread milk or gas? Why is the rent still too damn why? As the world slips global only those at the top of the totem poll (3 percent) benefit, the rest of us slide our middle class ipad dreams into argentina-style standard of living.
I wish the media would admit to blacklisting somebody, but what would be the use in that?
People are accusing Ron Paul supporters of being like Ayn Rand Objectivists, always winning polls because Objectivists are just incredibly highly opinionated. The argument against us is that we internet savvy, young, and loud on the internet but this isn’t reflective of the actual opinion of most Americans. The Rhetoric for why the opinions being expressed by the people are not represented on the spectacle of government is a deadly one. We cannot accept any illegimate reasons for misrepesentation. This is a democracy, where people are truely entitled to proper representation on the stage, isn’t that the american ideal we’ve fought for far and beyond property/consumerism/good health? (proper representation?) How can we as americans sit and piss our lives away while we witness incidents of democratic heresy. If we vote 80/20 and somebody says it 50/50 this is a deeper violation of our 1787 rights we fought for, then violation of our body as property or our house as property without a proper warrant or reason. MSNBC polls to ask “who did best among pundits” with Ron Paul winning by a landslide, while the formal MSNBC question after that is “who did better, Romney or Perry?” . New York times features a picture cutting out Pau. Even the Daily Show which has John Stewart joking about how the aristocracy picked the two candidates they thought would be good for the GOP 4 months ago and are making the people accept it yet even “oh my god: rick perry is going to be the next president” title of the show admits the truth of the matter.
This is clearly an implicit violation of freedom of the press. We are not having our freedom-to violated but our freedom from. The press is free to say whatever it wants, legally, but it does not have freedom from the social elite (aristocracy) that influence politics. This line should be severed.
No, bloggers are not being assassinated or tortured, and no state agency or private agency is trying to not allow me to type this, but somebody at LA TIMES framed the debate a certain way, somebody at NEW YORK TIMES had to frame the debate a certain way, if journalist are still under fire for telling the truth, he was canned from new york times for speaking out against the IRAQ war (After spending 33 years in lebanon as a correspondant) then there is somebody getting fired right now for not wanting to ignore the problems and republish material that only supports the ideas of the ruling class. Lord only know in 6 months and in 12 months when there is even more character assassination versus Ron Paul and a crazy amount of insane praise for Rick Perry, What can we do as citizens and as excited bloggers? We must use our techno-opportunity for the good of those who truely need liberty!
This is simultaneously both a demonstration of hemegony and the uselessness of information. There was a poll in 2000 in Business Week of over 1,024 interviews, over 70 percent favoring globalization, and recent polling backs up this information. In 2004 the University of Maryland commisioned a poll showing that slightly more than 50 percent of respondents saw globalization as a positive thing. It’s not surprising that at the same time large banks are preaching things like globally (recently the president of the Bank of America discussed taking money out of local investment and turning it into “global investment”), with advertisements from the Teda China convention center . More from the great Manfred Steger :
“The polling data presented in the BusinessWeek cover story reveal the existence of a remarkable cognitive dissonance between the American people’s normative orientation toward globalization and their personal experiences in the globalizing world. How can one explain that a sizeable majority of respondients are afraid fof the negative economic impact of globalization (open door policy) while at the same time deeming globalization to be a good thing? One obvious answer is ideology. Promarket visions of globalization have shaped a large part of American opinion, even if people’s daily experience reflect a less favoraable picture. For example, BusinessWeek article tells the harrowing story of a factory worker employed by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company in Dadsen, Alabama. Having lost his job after Goodyear shifted most of its tire production to low-wage jobs in Mexico and Brazil, the worker was only recently rehired by the same company for less money. Still, the article concludes this disturbing story by reaffirming the overall positive impact of economic globalization: “Polls have shown for years that a solid majority of Americans believe that open borders and free trade are good for the economy” – Manfred Steger
Yes, and repeating this statement over and over makes it true. Its nuts. America is in debt with magical money to IMF(an agency of the UN) since it dropped the gold standard in 1971 and the whole world based its global currency on the gold standarded dollar since the 1944 Bretton Woods Conference Agreement (united nations before there was any) made a global standard an aim (for banker).
Complaining about immigration but supporting open borders, free trade, and Rick Perry (an international Hawkist who fights for global presence) is like saying you vouch for internet security and safety but demand that the wifi hot spot be public and no computer can have any isolate protection! who can operate without paranoia if he is constantly looking for somebody new on the horizon, a stranger, to walk in eagerly, yet fight on behalf of trans national corporations that depend on this open border free trade agreements? More recent Polls require further investigation.
The second I knew Rick Perry was a member of the bilderberg group I predicted this… it’s nuts that nobody thought perry had a chance 3 months ago but its already doubling and trippling http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/Perry-Romney-Bachmann-Rasmussen/2011/08/16/id/407537?s=al&promo_code=CD88-1 and http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/Perry-Romney-Bachmann-Rasmussen/2011/08/16/id/407537?s=al&promo_code=CD88-1 . ” Perry won 39 percent of the vote among Republican primary voters who identify themselves as tea party members. Bachmann came in next, with 21 percent.
even the texans against terry only boosts inversely support for perry, meanwhile the ross pero/ralph nader of this election, ron paul, is being swept under the reg.
it’s hard to see this happen, to know undoubtly what will happen in the next 2 years, a international hawkist in the white house allowing open borders, a north american union between canada and france. there isn’t a lot we can do, it feels like trying to persuade people of a conspiracy theory, because it is kind of like one. rick perry has been told by the right people to talk to the right people
The experts that he has reached out to include former Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Doug Feith, former NSC strategy guru William Luti, former Assistant U.S. Attorney and National Review columnist Andrew McCarthy, former Pentagon official Charles "Cully" Stimson, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Europe Daniel Fata, former Pentagon China official Dan Blumenthal, the Heritage Foundation's Asia expert Peter Brookes, and former U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalizad. Even this post only to be co-opted into the fields, another serious candidate another SEO boost. it's amazing, the ability for experts, multinational banks, and white collar technocrats to infleunce an election like this, i'm sure rick perry has his social media team planned for next year. what kind of satanic demons guiding him... i can only imagine. god help us
