The United States government does not exist for the people. Certainly, there are “representatives” that are elected by “citizens” that are sent to Washington D.C. but they do not represent the interests of the voter.
The truth is, the Washington D.C. Municipality operates as an independent international city-state with “states” operating as corporate franchises, such as the STATE OF TEXAS or the STATE OF OHIO. This is operating in the same way that Burger King or McDonalds operates as a corporate franchise.
There is also the Texas State, a Republic, one of the Continental United States operating on the land jurisdiction; and there is the State of Texas, a Constitutional Democracy, that is a corporate franchise of the Federal United States operating in the sea jurisdiction of the United Colonies.
All state “citizens” are CITIZENS of the Washington D.C. Municipality and belong to this legal fiction no matter which state they reside in, and their elected “representatives” serve in a “CONGRESS” that operates the Washington D.C. Municipal Government.
This municipal government has a corporate CEO, called the President of the United States, that can act with executive privilege toward the “federal municipal franchises” that are incorporated under the laws of the Washington D.C. Municipality.
While the vote over certain red or blue “issues” brought a red or blue state-level politician to Washington, the relationship of the voter to the elected representative ends there.
To the politician, corporate interests are favored because corporations influence legislation through lobbying, and the legislation they wish to influence will have nothing to do with the “issues” entertained by John and Jane Smith. John and Jane Smith and their “issues” just brought them there, while legislating on behalf of corporate interests will make them millionaires.
The politician will never go against their corporate masters because doing the bidding of their corporate masters increases their personal wealth significantly.
All corporations pursue goals that will add to their bottom line, otherwise they would not exist. Behind each one of these companies are the owners with an invested interest in increasing their wealth as, to them, wealth is power. Here we enter into the world of the Billionaire who, for the purposes of gaining more wealth and power (either for themselves or for their friends), are the sole influencers of the world that we experience.
Having said that, please consider the following:
Billionaires do not concern themselves with political “issues”. A billionaire, for example, couldn’t care less if you can or cannot legally have an abortion at a certain age or in a certain state. A politically red billionaire will tell you that they are against abortion, while a politically blue billionaire will tell you that they are for abortion. The truth is, however, that they have the wealth and power to purchase any level of abortion services that they want for any member of their family at any time and in any country. And they will do this regardless of your position on the issue.
Billionaires are certainly not concerned with the issues of legality, as it is also true that Billionaires are never held to account. They can buy any kind of favor from any kind of entity on any level and in any country.
To the billionaire, the Flint Water Crises would only truly be a crises if it impacted their bottom line. In fact, those behind companies providing “health services” wouldn’t necessarily mind elevated lead exposure as they would make a profit treating those whose health has been negatively affected by this.
You see, the billionaires behind the pharmaceutical giants would prefer an opioid epidemic. That would make their corporations, and themselves, an astronomical amount of money. Those behind companies selling physically or psychologically addictive medications to treat conditions that are fabricated by randomly lumping symptoms together, don’t want you to be cured of anything because there is more money to be made by making you, and keeping you, addicted to pills. Then they can make money off of you when you get sick, and even more money off of you when you die.
But there is a reason for all of this, and I am going to end this entry with a quote from George Carlin who said it best (language warning):
“But there’s a reason. There’s a reason. There’s a reason for this, there’s a reason education sucks, and it’s the same reason that it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It’s never gonna get any better. Don’t look for it. Be happy with what you got. Because the owners of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the real owners now, the real owners, the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying, to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want: They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. That’s right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table to figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. They don’t want that. You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you, sooner or later, ’cause they own this fucking place. It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club. And by the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head in their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table is tilted folks. The game is rigged, and nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working people — white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on — good honest hard-working people continue — these are people of modest means — continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about them. They don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t care about you at all — at all — at all. And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on; the fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes every day. Because the owners of this country know the truth: it’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.”
