Reagan insider: 'GOP destroyed US economy'
By Paul B. Farrell
We've arrived at a historic turning point as a nation that no longer needs outside enemies to destroy us, we are committing suicide. Democracy. Capitalism. The American dream. All dying. Why? Because of the economic decisions of the GOP the past 40 years, says this leading Reagan Republican.
(And he oughta know.)
My original post begins here:
You know when I read or hear things nowadays about the bankruptcy of the United States, I always feel the Moon on 9/11/01 at '28Gemini' = "Through Bankruptcy, Society Gives to an Overburdened Individual the Opportunity to Begin Again."
Keynote: A release from unbearable pressures, freeing one for new tasks.
The bankruptcy proceedings mentioned here should not be construed as referring to a fraudulent type of bankruptcy. At least in the United States bankruptcy does not imply a moral condemnation, tahter, it means that individual failure cannot be separated from the health of the community. The special nature of the whole is implied in the failure of the part to perform adequately under particularly harsh economic conditions. A society which enthrones the principle of ruthless competition must also develop mechanisms to exteriorize the principle of compassion.
The latter was at first emphasized by Northern Buddhism, and soon after by Christianity. The concept of atonement is directly related to that of release from unbearable economic pressures in bankruptcy.
Here we have...(a) "leaving behind," a LIBERATION FROM THE PAST.

As the media and politicians have repeated over and over since The Towers were destroyed: the world is now changed and there's no going back. And as I've stated previously in many posts, bankruptcy of the we-the-people and of the nation was perhaps the primary motive for the attacks of 9/11 (World Trade Center) - and 9/11's ripples, and the costs of the wars it supposedly justifies, have led to precisely that desired outcome.
It's meant much less money for me and you, dear reader, but lots more money for the power elite to funnel into that mysterious money hole!
Yet there's one more thing about the US being bankrupt now: the culpability of Washington politicians who should have seen it coming and governed to head it off. My deepest suspicion is that they didn't want to head it off.
Alternately, perhaps it was their own greed and dishonesty that made a higher force (represented in charts by Pluto or combinations with Pluto such as Jupiter/Pluto, etc) impossible to outwit. Financial collapse would have been forced upon the US government as a necessary trial to go through on the path to a (supposedly inevitable) New World Order.
At the very least, US politicians sold us out because they couldn't or wouldn't take a stand on the people's behalf and protect us from Pluto, The Dragon. For when you search for 'where all the money went', first check Pluto's lair, is my best advice.
So are we still America, Land of the Free? Bosh! Check out the numbers of the current prison population in the US and you'll soon find that to be quite a massive fallacy, another empty 'dream' politicans and propagandists sold us as long as it was useful to them.
As I often say, America is my only nag in the race. Now I must add: in spite of how they've hobbled her!
So that's what I think in a nutshell. What do you think?
For your entainment: can Mr. Alan Greenspan be ever so slightly amewsing?
