by Paula Helton | CanadaFreePress.com As someone who has had no semblance of a normal life in over five years, I find myself becoming increasingly angrier at the Sheeple that refuse to see what has happened to our country. For all intents and purposes, we are now laboring under the rule of a dictator. What is it going to take for the huddled masses to rise up and say “NO MORE”? Keep reading.

Excerpts: The last election was the triumph of the urban political machine. In 2008, Obama ran as a national candidate. In 2012, he ran as the figurehead for the urban political machines and let their voter turnout and voter fraud efforts carry the day. In 2008, he tried inspiring people. In 2012, he ran the same tired campaign run by a hundred corrupt mayors in a hundred cities who know that they can’t lose because the game is rigged and the voters have no choice. […] The machine doesn’t care about individuals. It only counts bloc votes. It doesn’t care about making life better for people. Its genius is for finding ways to make life worse because it knows that it has more leverage over people looking for the next meal than over people looking to buy a house in the suburbs. The political machine doesn’t budget; it loots. It breaks the bank, raises taxes, drives out industries and rules over war zones divided between the rich and the poor. Reborn in fragmented cities that were multicultural before it was even a word, let alone a buzzword, the machine feeds off misery and conflict. During the 1860s, the machine sent German and Irish immigrants to riot and kill African-Americans to protest the Civil War. During the 1960s, it sent African-American mobs to riot and kill to protest the Vietnam War. The machine does not care about black or white. It only cares about power. Power, the machine understands, is division. The machine plots out segregated neighborhoods the way that generals deploy battalions. It promotes violence and suspicion and then meets with both sides to offer them a truce. Read it all.

She was right and they were wrong, and because of that they will never forgive her. More…
