He came out of nowhere but you still voted for him because you wanted change. Between you and me, at first you could hardly spell his full name. Somehow he managed to win the elections and become President. He did appeal to the masses. He talked a lot even without saying anything meaningful. He had made lots of promises, but didnt deliver any of them.
When he became president, instead of doing anything to improve the situation of the people, he did everything to improve his own position so that he could stay in power. He was supposed to stand for the little guy, but the big corporations he preached against were the ones he benefited instead. Kids would chant his name in schools like some mantra. Supporters would say his name again and again like brain dead zombies. No one understood what he was really all about, he never said it in the first place, but charisma, millions in campaign marketing would do the trick.
The man who was supposed to bring change and for once take the side of the working class ended up repeating socialist blabber on one side, and handing tax payers money to mega corporations on the other. He made sure to milk the middle class as much as possible so as to redistribute it fairly. To him, that would mean giving the biggest chunk of the pie to corporations and then throwing scraps through welfare programs that benefitted him politically, forcing the will of the people with handouts. Whenever he could he would strike against individual liberties. Any form of criticism was no longer considered a natural consequence of debate and observations, but an unpatriotic act that shouldnt be accepted. Soon enough, you noticed that less and less people criticized him. Even celebrities didnt dare speak against him, some afraid of being shunned by their peers, who would never accept someone from the other side, others were simply in his payroll in one way or another.
When the time came to vote again, people just didnt learn the lesson. Some couldnt live without uncle sugar´s money, he made sure of that during his first term. It didnt matter that the opposition had been demonized, that he had created a new kind of politics, of hatred and revenge.
I was as if no one noticed that he had turned a once proud nation into a shadow of its former, glorious self. He simply was unworthy of the Presidency he held. Seems people wanted more of that, and went out and chose that again through their vote. The damage done will take decades to undo. In the end, we got the country we deserved.
His name was Nestor Kirchner and he destroyed my country.
Anyone who has not read Ferfal yet should read him now. Starting today.
Go back to the begginig and read his books, read his blogs and learn. You’re going to need this knowledge.
No matter how ticked off, disgusted and, infuriated we are with the rest of the voters in the USA, we are still hanging over the edge of the precipice with few available hand-holds in sight.
It will take everything we have to get our country out of danger. All I can think of is attempting delaying tactics or totally legal monkey wrenching done by the books to slow it down.
I don’t have any brilliant ideas to do it. Sorry.
I understand your sentiment but I think yesterday we actually went over the precipice. We were hanging over the edge the last four years, now we’re done for.
Agreed. Yesterday was a dark day indeed.
A thought for tonight

The 19th of May, 1780, was a remarkable day. Candles were lighted in many houses; the birds were silent and disappeared, and the fowls retired to roost. The legislature of Connecticut was then in session at Hartford.
A very general opinion prevailed, that the day of judgment was at hand. The house of Representatives, being unable to transact their business, adjourned. A proposal to adjourn the Council was under consideration.
When the opinion of Colonel Davenport was asked, he answered, “I am against an adjournment. The day of judgment is either approaching, or it is not. If it is not, there is no cause of an adjournment: if it is, I choose to be found doing my duty. I wish therefore that candles may be brought.”
Let us all emulate the good Colonel in the days to come. I’m not lowering my flag.
It’ s not the voters. It’s the non existent voters through cheating and fraud.
Just went 6 days without power due to Sandy,
Ferfal’s very old post about spontaneous barter systems only available on the micro-local level came to mind sometime during the week when I was running around trying to find a replacement part.
Yes indeed. People here have no idea what's coming at them, and it'll happen with a rapidity and severity that'll make their heads spin.
Slouching towards Sarajevo...
