“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
There are two main purposes for this aggregation of politics information: 1) for my own quick-reference use (as is the case with my other aggregations, and 2) to radically reduce online research time for any interested people who happen to stumble across this website. By making these kinds of aggregations, I don't have spend nearly as much time searching for information which I might have forgotten to archive in my system of folders, files and bookmarks.
Always remember, "politics" = person or group A trying to persuade person or group B to obey the will of A, most frequently for the personal financial benefit of A and to the personal financial detriment (higher taxes) of B. In other words, "politics" = manipulation. That's all it is. That is why deception = the so-called "art" of politics. That is also why "politician" = professional deceiver/manipulator, and why "political" = deception-based, manipulation-based, and/or having to do with deception and/or manipulation.
Everybody is competing for the inherently evil and inevitably corrupting One-Ring of "political" Power (over the Other) to steal labor and money out of the "other guy's" pocket and put it in their own. Politicians get votes by promising to be all things to all people. Because that is a physical/material impossibility, most of politicians' promises of necessity get broken. Because all politicians know this in advance, they are ALL liars to one degree or another. The king is always the most corrupt person in the kingdom. (The first two kings of ancient Israel, Saul and David, were murderers.) In my opinion, any person who sincerely wants to be the king is criminally insane and an implacable deadly enemy to the inalienable Creator-endowed rights of individual freedom and self-ownership.
"We have a two-party tyranny in this country, and that is the greatest enemy of the United States of America, period. Nothing else matters except this two-party tyranny. And as long as we have this two-party of crooks – and they're just light weight crooks … What they're not telling you is that the printing presses are going 24 hours a day. We're borrowing a trillion dollars a year in fake digital money … and basically these guys are going to go until we burn the capitol down ... We have 18 suicides daily among our veterans ...The US government is not here to serve you ... You can't substute technology for thinking ... The CIA should be burned to the ground and salt plowed in... Look at Congress: all of these Congressmen are millionaires by the end of their first term, and all of them now are actually planning for post-Congress K-Street lobbyist jobs .. If I were God, Congress would be like jury duty, because I absolutely guarantee you that anybody in this room would make a better congressman than the sh*t we have today." ~ Robert D. Steele (former CIA insider)
The tyranny spoken of by Mr. Steele is ultimately implemented via use of manipulation-based words designed to have opposite meanings -- words such as "God", "law", "government", "religion", "money", etc. The key to understanding these dual-purpose (i.e. good-evil words) is being able to recognize the difference between when they are used to mean self-ownership and when they are used to mean feudalistic "government" ownership/control over B by A.
