Time to Abolish Left vs. Right

By Carl Gibson, Reader Supported News

14 May 13

eeping our nation divided is an agenda supported by both Fox News and MSNBC. The media and the politicians both profit from Americans believing they should hate their fellow Americans. And oddly enough, the one thing that unites the traditional “right” and “left” in this country is our hatred for those same media organizations and politicians that make money by regularly lying to us. The best way to beat them is to find the things that bring us together in one common purpose and unite around that.

An article in the Atlantic last week talked about how the dominant liberal narrative is broken. The argument that government is inherently good and is necessary to provide things like Social Security, Medicare and national parks has some truth to it, and worked well for both parties in the mid-twentieth century. Democrats and Republicans from FDR to Eisenhower won landslide elections using the good-government narrative. But now that our government is captive to corporations and their lobbyists like the US Chamber of Commerce, Americans of all ideological leanings are united in the belief that our current government, as it stands, is completely out of touch and needs radical change from outside the political system to do it.

In this video Mark Meckler, a co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, talks about how he had a surprisingly pleasant conversation with several of the co-founders of MoveOn.org about crony capitalism. It was an incredibly populist speech about how they found themselves in complete agreement that big moneyed special interests have taken government hostage and have wasted billions of tax dollars on bailing out banks (like the Federal Reserve’s $16 trillion in bailouts to both US and foreign banks that went entirely under the media’s radar). He also talked about how it’s more profitable for the crony capitalist DC bubble and the media they control to keep us divided than it is for us to play into those forced divisions.

Another Tea Party founder lamented about how the raw populist energy that originally inspired the Tea Party back in early 2008 against the Bush administration’s bailouts of the biggest banks has been overtaken by Republican ideologues like Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich. Karl Denninger, a financial blogger who runs MarketTicker.com, said the Tea Party’s original message was against the big banks. After Obama’s inauguration, there was anger over appointees like Tim Geithner and Larry Summers, who were the same bought-and-paid-for financiers who deregulated the banks during Clinton’s second term and brought about the beginning of the financial collapse. Denninger supported the Occupy Wall Street movement early on, saying it was picking up where the Tea Party left off before it was hijacked by the Republican Party.

Democrats and Republicans are using issues like gun control, Benghazi and gay marriage to continue feeding the illusion that there’s a difference between the two and to continue the flow of money to their corporate masters. Whenever a politician says “gun control,” gun sales go through the roof. When the ruckus over Chick-Fil-A’s disapproval of marriage equality became mainstream conversation, social conservatives formed lines that went around the entire block to make their political statement about marriage equality. After their much ado about nothing Benghazi hearings, GOP members of Congress are fundraising off of their witch hunt. In either instance, whenever you follow the money trail, gun manufacturers and allegedly gay-hating fast food restaurants made record sales and politicians raised more money. Money is the entire point.

When it comes to Republican and Democratic Party officials’ deference to corporate money, they’re both nearly identical. The GOP-controlled House is pressing Obama hard to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, which would endanger an entire region’s drinking water supply and create anegligible amount of temporary jobs. Harry Reid’s Senate voted overwhelmingly for a resolution supporting the pipeline in their budget. The Monsanto Protection Act, which was written by GOP Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri and Monsanto officials, quietly became law with the signature of a Democrat president after the approval of a Democrat-led Senate.

Both parties are captive to the for-profit war industry – the military-industrial complex thatEisenhower warned us about – and are united in their support for military intervention whenever and wherever possible. Our last Republican president waged wars in two countries without being attacked by either one. Our current Democratic president has extended one of those wars byanother ten years and used drones to take military action in several other countries. Even Rand Paul, who made a name for himself filibustering Obama’s drone czar to lead the CIA, has made statements supporting drones to be used on Americans. Even though traditional Republicans are united against wasteful government spending, and traditional Democrats are united against austerity policies, both parties can agree that there’s entirely too much wasteful spending in Washington when it comes to an imperial military force with a bloated budget currently occupying over 130 nations with 900 bases around the world, and the multibillion-dollar security and surveillance state used to monitor peaceful protesters instead of terrorists. We can certainly find agreement that it would be much more productive to stop spending money on the dysfunctional F-35 jet, which even John McCain has criticized, than make cuts to early childhood education programs like Head Start.

Americans should be smarter than to allow ourselves to get thrown into the counter-productive left vs. right fight hyped by the corporate-owned media and our corporate-owned politicians. If we’re going to fight a binary struggle, it should be populist vs. corporatist. That’s the only real division in this country right now. Are you on the people’s side, or on big money’s side?

    Arguing with people about planks in each others platforms is a PERFECT example of arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic! The Administrative Branch is full of war criminals, thieves, liars and almost certainly murderers, the Congress is complicit almost to a man (and woman) as well as being PAID to turn their sole right to write and pass our laws to corporations and corporate reps; the Judicial Branch is crooked from the Attorney General on down… ISN’T THAT ENOUGH? What more does it take? How about this: the “President” has 3 Social Security cards, none of them his own. He has offered as evidence of his legitimate and American birth three FORGERIES, at least one of which he acknowledged outright. He’s been caught in lie after lie after lie, including lies to the Congress which is still a crime, even for the President…

    I could go on like this for a long time. Obama certainly has. America is ALMOST GONE, FOLKS! We have an almost totally criminal government, a supine and wholly owned (by “elites”) MSM, a crooked Judiciary, our “regulatory agencies” are ALL working for the profits of corporations or specific industries (the profits of which ALL go overseas) no matter HOW many Americans are killed by their refusal to engage in the consumer protection they were created to do.

    So now what? They also own most of the cops, most of the military, the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, the DEA, DHS, etc., down to the least and last. Obama is still “working under the table” to take guns away and declare martial Law – in peacetime! PFUI! I write this stuff and I need to SPIT.

    • There are two factors existing in society now which are fixing these problems DrinkDeep:
      1-The freedom of info on this internet. Online petitions get LOTS of people and are very effective at controlling our govt. officers. These crimes can only continue through secrecy and deception, so as we are making that impossible, these crimes are being exposed, and becoming more difficult (even impossible) to do, or get away with.
      2-Law… something that has been evolving, but is getting close now to a point where it is ideal. Under common, equity, and constitutional law, all of these things are unlawful, and we who learn the law have the power to enforce it. We the people ARE the power.

      All we need is to stop giving them our power, through taxes, votes, and submission.
      Did you know that taxes on labor are not legal, only commercial drivers require license and registration to use public roads, we all have the right to practice law without license, and our money is not even legal tender? Or that all home foreclosures are illegal because the banks loan out 10x what they have?

      As the people wake up, we will stop giving them our votes, money, and consent…their secrecy dissolves…and this ‘Beast’ of a system is going down in flames.

      The question for me is how much damage will this ‘Beast’ do before it is gone?

    Yes, I fully agree with DrinkDeep, concentrating on our oneness instead of our differences by moving into our hearts we will be able to find peace within and with each other. There may be lots of reasons to justify separation and even hate and hostility. Justification is a thing of the ego and it immediately closes the heart. And when I discover myself in this place I do some hoóponopono and pulling in the Violet Flame which is really healing and cleansing. Love and Light to all you beautiful souls

    This IS BIG! Many, Many Americans are WAKING Up to the REALIZATION that the “LEFT/RIGHT” Paradigm is Nothing MORE than a DEVICE to Control the MASSES, by Keeping them Convinced, through the Cabal Media’s Efforts, that it “Matters”…WHICH Party you Support, when BOTH have Clearly Done – SO Much Damage to this Country, and our FREEDOM. BOTH Parties …Serve the SAME Masters, and Are Hopelessly Corrupt…and “Cabalized”.
    We are…WAKING Up Rapidly to the Falsity of the “Left/Right” “Choice” they Hand Us.
    What we – WANT,…are STATESMEN who will WORK for the Best Interests of the American PEOPLE, No MATTER their Party Affiliation !

  6. wbbourland says:

    MANY Americans are Rapidly Beginning to – WAKE UP to The FALSE Reality of the “Left/Right” Paradigm. We – SEE that it is MERELY a Device to CONTROL the Masses. The TWO Parties…BOTH Serve the Same Masters, to the Detriment of the American People. The Corruption, and Cabal Control of BOTH Parties, and the Wicked Way that the Cabal media Plays…ONE Party Off against the Other, To CON the Sheep into Thinking it Makes a DIFFERENCE which Party You Support, is a GAME that has Worn THIN, and MANY, many Americans are BEGINNING to – SEE through it !
    The – GREAT AWAKENING…that the Cabal has FEARED, Has…BEGUN !!!

  7. Energy Doctor says:

    Caarl is beginning to get it. His previous articles were all about how bad Republicans are while ignoring the mistakes of the libs. Living in Madison, WI almost requires a liberal mindset in order to not go crazy.
    We are all on the same side and whether it is the cabal, the globalists, the illuminati or the sabbatheans….someone is trying to manipulate all of us.
    The great thing about this site is all of us here have pretty much said enough!
    We have had three beautiful Chemtrail free days here in flyover country. The birds are singing this morning and my coffee couldn’t be better. For now, that is enough!

    Friends, always remember, “All Things are Possible”.

  8. Did you know that the 25 major media companies were first bought, and agent/editors installed in 1915, according to this congressional speech in 1917: http://www.mindfully.org/Reform/Morgan-Buys-Newspapers9feb17.htm

    I’ve been thinking about how to run a presidential campaign for 2016…
    Run for the ‘Human’ party (for all human beings equally)…
    Focus on enforcing the Constitution, Common and equity law in proper balance, and clean out all the criminals in media, govt., and companies, and all the unconstitutional legislation too.
    It seems like a good idea to do some campaign speeches of interviews on lie detector voluntarily too.
    Perhaps one could stay on live internet web-camera as close to 24hrs, 7days, as possible (an assassination resistance technique too).
    Crowd-sourcing ideas, (on public forum, which I will control), and discussing publicly all things to be voted on.
    There is a lot of corruption in Human society, and we have learned enough lessons in history now to refine Common, Equity, and Written Constitutional law (of the Land), and sort out all of our corruption.
    Media is first, because the people are the source of power, and they just need to stop giving their votes, money, rights, etc., to the bad guys. Then we prosecute more the bad guys in govt. and business together.

    I promise to be a great President, if that actually happens. We produce several times what we need, and without the current problem: 1 out of 1 million in control taking over 50% of what all produce, without producing anything of value themselves…
    And with a justice system focused on remedying harm, instead of imposing rule…
    Life in America will be far sweeter.

    Great article!

  10. DrinkDeep says:

    Even though I find the article a little more partisan and narrowly-inclusive than my stance, I think this is the very first step toward enlightenment. If I had one wish, I would wish the entire world woke up tomorrow knowing
    I am he as you are he as you are me
    And we are all together

    =)
