By BOTH PARTIES! The Real Cause of the Crisis Preface: Remember what the Founding Fathers said about partisan soap operas. While partisans focus on specific things the other side is doing – “Obamacare” and the “debt ceiling” are the buzzwords of the day – the truth is that we wouldn’t be in this budget crisis in the first place if the government hadn’t engaged in bipartisan idiocy by: Killing the Golden Goose of the internet economy – by far the strongest section of the U.S. economy – through mass surveillance, which directly harms internet companies, Silicon Valley, California … and the entire U.S. economy (Facebook lost 11 millions users as of April mainly due to privacy concerns … and that was before the Snowden revelations) Encouraging American businesses to move abroad for decades, sucking money out of the U.S. economy and injecting it into foreign economies Fighting a series of wars – which are horrible for the economy – when not absolutely vital to protect against an imminent attack Creating the too big to fail banks, which are dooming the economy Giving massive subsidies to the giant banks, saving the big banks at taxpayer expense, choosing the banks over the little guy, and saying no to helping Main Street … while continuing to throw trillions at the giant banks Throwing a large percentage of those bailouts at foreign banks (and see this) Throwing money at other corporate welfare queens And that ain't all of it . . . I’ve repeatedly warned that there is a scripted, psuedo-war between Dems and Repubs, liberals and conservatives which is in reality a false divide-and-conquer dog-and-pony show created by the powers that be to keep the American people divided and distracted. See this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this and this. In fact, the Founding Fathers warned us about the threat from a two party system. CLICK HERE to read their warnings.
