Since I'm ranting today about the corrupt American "two" party "system," I just had to include Ralph Nader's response to a solicitation from the G.W. Bush presidential library:

'The Country You Destroyed': A Letter to George W. Bush

I especially loved this passage, as equally true of B.O., as of G.B, in fact, one could apply it to so many presidents, and in particular, the last four, no, make that fi...er..si... no seven....:

"When you were a candidate, I called you a corporation running for the Presidency masquerading as a human being. In time you turned a metaphor into a reality. As a corporation, you express no remorse, no shame, no compassion and a resistance to admit anything other than that you have done nothing wrong."

    Trusts, foundations don’t pay direct taxes to the government in america,in europe royal families are tax exemt. You can’t vote for corporate heads, you don’t vote for royal family leadership. Corporations control both houses of congress with lobbyists,Royalty control their parliments through constitutional powers granted them over elected officials(remember the power to dissolve a sitting parliment is a powerful threat that normally doesn’t have to be actually implemented to be effective) and you’d have to live here to realize it,Royal families force their way into successful businesses here like the mafia does except here its legal. Krupp,thyssen,Rheinmetal,I.G.Farben all had huge royal ownership in percentages of the businesses as wellas mercedes,BMW and especially volkswagen. The Keizer was no dope and his spawn is no innnocent bystander in all of this either as was the king of Italy or sweden or even england for that matter. They are the hidden hand in these covert secrets even in south america and the nazi hideaways. If your family was allowed to rob and steal for a thousand years with no taxes to pay and an army to protect your thievery think how much money you’d have and what secrets for blackmail you’d know. Just the tip of the iceberg like paperclip.

    if/IF Douglas Dietrich’s testimonies have credence: this is nothing new: go back to the 1876 election fraud between Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel Tilden (Tilden was the Ralph Nader of his day according to Dietrich)-

    and if one has read Librarian of Congressman James Billington’s “Fire in the Eyes of Men” he very briefly mentions “this election was disputed”- well, wonder of wonders…

    if/IF there is truth behind the “Act of 1871” turning the US from a sovereign state into a corporation then this is no wonder-

    “I called you a corporation running for the Presidency”- well, wonder of wonders…!

    we DO NOT have a democracy; we have a corporatocrasy; so what is the difference between communism (was run by corporations), fascism, Nazi-ism, democracy; there is none- all are/were run by bankster-sponsored corporations;

    ever noticed why communist nations are called “democratic republics”?- I rest my case-

    stay well all-

    anything to do with politics makes my karma go into a free fall negative spin.
    Everything they do is wrong.

    I find it interesting that Condoleeza Rice now “takes personal responsibility” for all the things that went wrong with the first Iraqi war.

    My question is, will she sit before a tribunal and face execution or life in Iraqi prison for capital crimes against humanity, or are those just the usual empty words of a second rate political hack?

    As the poet says; “words are easy, like the wind . . . .”

    I hope that all the ghosts of her victims visit her every night in her dreams and share the horror she helped create.

      “I hope that all the ghosts of her victims visit her every night in her dreams and share the horror she helped create.”

      And likewise for the unrepentant Madeleine Albright who said that the deaths of 500,000 innocent Iraqi children was worth it for Iraq’s non-existent WMDs …

    For me the Nadar quote is superb.
    Also the corporation, as we know it(as currently structured, with its privatized sequential money system, etc.) is an “alien” force that is killing the living Earth. It must be stopped by mankind; or, it will stop mankind, as we currently know it

    • bdw000 on January 20, 2014 at 3:03 pm

      Hey Robert, you need to watch the show Continuum. They actually use the phrase, “Corporate States of America.” You can buy the first season at Amazon. The second season supposedly will be available sometime this year. SciFi will have the third season beginning in June probably.

      After 2 seasons, it is still not possible to tell who the good guys are . . .

      • Robert Barricklow on January 20, 2014 at 3:26 pm

        I’ve ordered it from my local library.

        • bdw000 on January 21, 2014 at 10:37 am

          This is a Canadian show, made on a very small budget. The first season tends to show that. But the story is so good that it is better than almost all fancy American shows (imho).

          But many consider it one of the best time-travel shows/movies/books ever.

          If you get tired of the “cop drama” aspect of the show in the first season, the story really takes off in the second season. Also, the “terrorists” are really campy in the first season, but it becomes clear that they cannot be automatically labelled as the “bad guys.”

          Hope you enjoy.

          • Robert Barricklow on January 21, 2014 at 3:28 pm

            The Canadian
            “Intelligence” Season 1 & 2, is also a stellar show.

      • ERROR 418 on January 22, 2014 at 9:13 am

        I agree. Continuum is a rockin’ show, the only one I go out of my way to watch. The storyline is pretty good. It does contain heavy transhumanism, but in the past 6 months, there have been a slew of transhumanist shows put on the air. There is also a fairly new carbon nano-matrix product being researched now called Graphene that would make Kiera Cameron’s bodysuit into a reality. For a synopsis of the show from February of last year, check it out here ->
        There are some really good plot twists to the show and the story line loops back on itself in some really interesting ways. You really have to pay attention in order to not miss something important. Excellent show IMHO.
        More info here-> http://www.syfy.com/continuum
        And yes, in the show, the world is openly run by corporations.
        BTW, everyone in this forum should realize by now that the United States political system is NOT a two or three party system. It is a single party system with the duality (opposing sides) played off against each other to give the illusion of choice. The controlling faction behind the scenes buys off BOTH parties so they have control no matter which side supposedly wins.

        Kudo’s to my neighbors to the North for producing the only show on TV worth watching – Continuum

    Nader should have cc’d the letter to Kissinger and ZB, you know who I mean, just can’t spell it. The funny thing is, that when the two Bush ex-presidents go to that big parliament in the sky, they will be hailed as two of the greatest presidents the US has ever had, see Faux News. If there is a “hell hotel” you can bet these two lunatics will be checking in for a very long stay.

  8. marcos toledo on January 20, 2014 at 11:08 am

    Ralph Nader always the gentleman didn’t write what he really thought Bush you murdering stupid idiot.

  9. terminally skeptical on January 20, 2014 at 9:05 am

    Over the years I’ve read Seymour Hersh, Sibel Edmunds and a slew of other researchers, investigative reporters and insiders but none have given better information than former CIA operative Susan Lindauer. She reveals there were numerous overtures and efforts by Saddam Hussain and Iraq to not only comply but also enrich the U.S., giving us the lions share of the oil spoils and offering to buy one million U.S. cars a years for a 10 year period. Instead the whole thing was cooked up and delivered to as an imminent threat.

    So rant on, Joseph.

    • ERROR 418 on January 22, 2014 at 9:38 am

      Absolutely correct. Saddam wouldn’t give up the ancient cylinder scrolls and he was rebuilding the hanging gardens.(He believed he was Nebuchadnezzar reincarnated.) In other words, he was rebuilding the Sumerian heritage of the region. We went in there to take the ancient technology he wouldn’t give up. (The first thing done upon the capture of Baghdad was for American troops to loot the museum.) Those scrolls had formula’s for weapons of unimaginable power, part of a lost age of high technology. Star-gate technology and more. We went after weapons of mass destruction alright, but not the ones portrayed in the media.

      • terminally skeptical on January 22, 2014 at 5:45 pm

        The exo political motive rumor first crossed my path not long after America went to war in Iraq but I hadn’t heard til now Saddam though he was Nebuchadnezzar. Also heard some 6 years ago there was looting going on around Giza by unspecified paramilitary types for the same reason you cite. Maybe there’s talk of this in one of Joseph’s books, I don’t know. Otherwise do you have any quality evidence to support this, what I consider to be a most plausible explanation for the invasion’s true motives?

        BTW, appreciate the search engine you left Margaret earlier today, thanks.

    What should always be stressed, so that it gains wider understanding with the public, is the psychopathic nature of the corporation and the psychopathic nature of high-level politicians and CEOs.

    Smart psychopaths are drawn to power like moths to the flame. The easiest way to parse the insanity engulfing the world is simply to view it through the prism of psychopathy and most everything starts to make sense.

    The corporation is a psychopathic entity by its very nature, as Nader remarks, and a means by which psychopaths escape retribution for their crimes. And so now US psychopaths have given it “life” and claimed for it actual personhood. Voila, psychopathy in action. It’s simple.

    • basta on January 20, 2014 at 7:16 am

      Oh, forgot to add, before I had read that letter, I thought “the country you destroyed” Nader was referring to was the US. Silly me.

      • justawhoaman on January 20, 2014 at 8:49 am

        I agree that the Shrubbs have done a great deal to destroy THIS country, let alone any other country the MIC has sought to overtake. The stupidity is breathtaking, however, in the comments section of that article as the faux left and right exchange barbs as if there really were distinctly different parties or goals. Ralph Nader was never an option… but neither were any of the presidential candidates who have run for the entire length of my voting life (since 1972). You are spot on Dr. F as the last (at LEAST) seven Presidents are to blame. While it is arguable that the demise began slowly right from the beginning, there is no doubt that the shredding of the Constitutional Republic accelerated into hyperbolic proportions starting at the commencement of WWI. Is that not when our Constitutional Republic was illegally transformed into THE corporation? (as Basta points out, the Psycopathic Corporation).

        • basta on January 20, 2014 at 12:55 pm

          Don’t vote (except on a local or state level); it only encourages them. Delegitimize the Empire.

          • ERROR 418 on January 22, 2014 at 9:26 am

            Right on Basta !
            To participate in a system is to give credence and your acceptance to it. I personally do not accept the corruption and the usurpation of the system by corporations, therefore I do not participate.
