Has the Globalist Organization, and their affiliated Military/Industrial Complex, 'snookered' the American general public again?

So we have this questionable offshore banking by Liberal leadership, and the recent Conservative, rubber-stamped, illegal war for 'regime change' and control of Libyan oil, gold and banking assets. Does anyone get the picture yet?

Conservative, Liberals or Neither
by JJ Rousso
Conservative parties take their ideological roots and values from feudal times when kings and aristocrats ruled. They believed in a hierarchical system of class and privilege, hereditary status, and rule by “men of means.” There were no concepts of democracy, freedom, or equality for the common people. Many of these traits or beliefs are still basic to Conservatives today.
Conservatives represent the upper income class and always strive for legislation to benefit their class. They are almost all concerned about self-interest, business, and the pursuit of wealth. They are the most class-conscious of the major political parties - always putting profits before people - and strongly opposing any re-distribution of wealth.
Their policies and beliefs normally include:
1. “No role for government” in the economy except to maintain law, order, and to create a good climate for business. This includes creating foreign wars abroad and continuing the class war against the working class at home. Hence, free-trade concepts such as NAFTA (called neoliberalism or globalization), are enacted in favor of business interests even though they eventually destroy jobs, families, and communities at home as corporations move out to low-cost countries.
2. “Small government”, which again means fewer services to the community so that the public sector can be privatized. This is commonly done by under-funding that makes them inefficient (i.e., long waiting lines in hospitals, poor government service, etc.) so they can more easily be privatized. It also means selling off highly profitable government agencies such as BC Gas and PetroCanada that could have been used to lower taxes and to counter ransom prices by the oil and gas industries. Private charter schools are used to weaken public education; hospitals are under-funded to denigrate them so they become inefficient and can more easily be privatized. Harper is now calling for $11 billion in cuts to government spending that is normally directed at the public sector: social programs, government jobs, regulatory agencies, and the CBC. (Canada now spends more than $20 billion annually on the military, and is planning to spend $30 billion more on unneeded fighter planes in spite of the fact that there is no feasible threat from anyone. The purchase was made without competitive bidding or a final price being set, and without parliamentary debate. It was done in secret, making a sham of democracy. This adds more proof to the shady practices of the Conservatives – a record which they are notorious for. It also demonstrates that they are the “war party” and known more for cutting social programs than for strengthening them.)
3. Survival-of-the-fittest concepts, which means people have to survive by themselves without government help. They also say that people have to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps, implying there will be no government help to victims of the unstable system that produces recessions and depressions. This means that there is no will of conservative governments to directly alleviate joblessness, inequality, injustice, or hardships in society. (This is traditional class-warfare by the rich against the poor. Critics claim unemployment and depressions are not the fault of workers, and if governments allow such unstable systems to exist, then people should be protected or allowed to change the system.)
4. Values of greed, self-interest, individualism, and survival-of-the-fittest free-market concepts are constantly promoted. These are un-Christian and immoral values that result in economic chaos, hardship, and incivility. It justifies worker exploitation and ransom pricing (for oil and gas, etc.) in society. It means putting “profits before people” as in the poor countries where giant corporations make enormous profits and pay workers inhumane slave wages. They always call for de-regulation and lower taxes. Because they cut into their profits, Conservatives oppose all policies that benefit the common people and protect the environment.
5. Conservative economic policies are now called neoliberalism (or globalism) policies that benefit the giant corporations but impoverish the people, as corporations move out to low-wage countries. It demands that all human and natural resources become available to private free-market exploitation and development. Even energy resources that may be in short supply can be exported – and this includes water. It demands the elimination of national borders for trade and investment and the removal of all restraints on the free movement of resources and finance. Under these policies corporations have powers that often exceed those of governments (e.g. the Ontario government was threatened by US legal action if it initiated public auto insurance under NAFTA). It also destroys democracy, communities, and many government controls. This means the end of sovereignty and the integration of Canada into the failing American Empire.
6. On social policies Conservative normally are anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-women, pro-church, and pro-religion (Christian). Liberal parties in Canada accept almost all the economic policies of the Conservatives today but differ in social policies in that Liberals are generally much more moderate or liberal. Both Conservatives and Liberals erroneously believe that free-markets are self-regulating and will solve the marketing problems. This is belied by the fact that the free and unregulated market system allowed - contrary to all economic logic - the $8 trillion housing bubble that almost destroyed the system were it not for government intervention – what the Conservatives traditionally oppose. The results of this erroneous belief were also the “wipe-out” of millions of the people’s life savings and lost jobs that devastated families and communities. Both parties put private interests ahead of the public interest (e.g. selling off PetroCanada and BC Gas) and cutting social programs to schools and hospitals and the CBC, but spending more on the military such as $30 billion for unnecessary war planes.
The Liberals - despite their self-proclaimed compassionate policies - repeatedly act like Conservatives: they make promises and then do little or nothing for the people. They have often sold off profitable government assets, cut social programs, and cut funds to the CBC while increasing military spending and lowering taxes on corporations and the wealthy. They accepted the Conservative’s NAFTA, the GST and the HST (both unfair and regressive forms of taxation). Both parties have been striving to integrate the country economically and militarily with the US . In 2008, Harper signed onto the US “Civil Assistance Plan” which although disguised, allows American troops to enter Canada and aid the government in controlling/suppressing Canadians if needed.
In conclusion, with Conservative and Liberal upper-class values and policies, there is no hope for a civilized and democratic society as neither party has the proper policies to counter economic crises nor do they have the “will” to aid the common people. There are other parties and choices. Fortunately, the people have the power for change.
Canadian 2011 election:
What is not being talked about - by Jeremy Arney
"What I am finding increasingly disturbing is what is not being talked about in this Canadian 2011 election:
The stimulus program part of the Action Plan is rapidly coming to an end, and many thousands of workers will be out of work again. Convenient that this will happen after the "unnecessary" election is over is it not?
New perimeter agreement with the USA which will further enmesh us into the control of the US Homeland Security with the resulting movement of personal data south. CETA, the trade agreement with Europe which is still continuing through this election, and will undermine Canadian sovereignty even further. Provinces and municipalities will be subjected to WTO international trade deal rules, which we already know through FTA and NAFTA do not favour Canada. Our sewage, water and infrastructure will all be up for sale to European companies and we could even see the Trans Canada Highway turned into a toll road, owned and controlled by Spanish companies which specialize in that throughout the world.
By the end of this year Health Canada will have removed from the shelves of Health Stores about 80% of their offerings as the producers cannot afford the expensive scientific tests required by Health Canada to prove something that has been known for thousands of years to be fact; natural foods are safe and effective, yet they do not make money for the pharmaceutical companies, on the contrary they lose them profits due to wellness rather than sickness.
The Rule of Law in Canada has been turned on its head because we are becoming ruled by “violation of the regulations” in the laws, not the laws themselves. This means that the courts will not be used to judge innocence or guilt as that will be done by the Ministers themselves and the only recourse under this system is to a review panel established by that same Minister. The courts will not be involved at all. Guilty without the possibility of proving our innocence before a court is contrary to innocent until proven guilty in a court of law before a jury of our peers if necessary.
These issues and more are not being addressed, so please help us get answers"
