The sad thing is the Mainstream media is not paying much attention to it, though CNN is at least paying lip service to it. And the electorate is so polarized they refuse to see what is right in front of their eyes were they to step away from their hate for a moment. We saw the "tell" when Obama appointed GE's CEO Jeffery Immelt as we posted here OBama, Immelt, GE no Income tax, GE bailed out, GE jobs china, REVOLT! and further elaborated on it here Bush and Obama, the best Pair the rich could hold. Obamas ties to Wall street have been consistently reported on by the media yet without saying, "Yo, it is usually conservatives that have the closest ties to wall street!"
So is Romney the real Obama? Read the following as examples and you decide:
Of course this does nothing but confirm what we posted here: Obama, Romney, OMG their twins.
However we ourselves are under no illusion that either candidate is going to be able to do much of anything regarding the economy. Even the Federal Reserve has said without congress getting off their asses the economy is toast. Which of course underscores the illusion of power most attribute to the Presidency. HOWEVER, and there is always one of those isn't there? There are things a President can do to muck things up.
For instance we now have two corrupt Supreme Court Justices, Scalia and Thomas, who one would wonder why they aren't in jail much less still sitting on the bench. See: Supreme court, going once, twice SOLD...... and Supreme court still for sale. But even of more concern (after all why should we be concerned with a few corrupt judges when it appears there may be a heap of them supporting the human bondage trade See: Gus Bilirakis, Royal order of Jesters, is he the only one?) is the fun a President can have with executive orders and the like and this is where Obama shows his lineage to Bush/Cheny. Excerpted from an article by George Washington because we know he would never tell a lie. Although we do recommend the whole post, we know that most are not even going to read the excerpt and continue to seek out information that feeds the lie. But hey, can ya blame a guy for trying?

A Perennial Problem
While it might be tempting to blame the implementation of Schmitt and Strauss’ ideas on George W. Bush alone, this is not borne out by the historical record.
After all, Dick Cheney dreamed of giving the White House the powers of a monarch long decades before Bush became president. Likewise, indefinite detention, widespread spying on Americans, war throughout the Middle East, North Africa and Afghanistan, the Patriot Act, militarization of the police, and most of the other Bush-era abuses were launched or contemplated long before Bush was sworn in.
Indeed, the demonization of the enemy through dishonest means has been going on for thousands of years.
And these Strauss/Schmitt policies are being faithfully continued by president Obama – a supposed liberal.

- Obama is implementing the Neocon plan for regime changethroughout the Middle East and North Africa
- Obama has increased the number of drone strikes, labeling allyoung men in conflict zones as probable bad guys. Obama has appointed himself sole “decider” as to who lives and who dies
- A top legal expert says:
President Obama … says that he can kill [any American citizen without any charge and] on his own discretion. He can jail you indefinitely on his own discretion.
- Obama has continued the state of emergency declared on 911 – and renewed every year since – and may even have continued the extra-constitutional state of government declared on 9/11 (no one has given a definitive answer one way or the other)
- Spying on Americans has ramped up much more under Obama than Bush
- Obama has continued an economic system begun under Bush which is literally more fascist than capitalist
- The government uses arbitrary, shifting definitions of enemies. For example, while Al Qaeda has been our “mortal enemy” since 9/11 … now they are our close ally. Yet the government might label anyone anywhere in the world terrorists if they do what wedo … without our permission. And government agencies under the Obama administration are labeling the most mundane, normal American behavior as potential terrorism
- The federal government under Obama used such brutal violence to break up the Occupy protests (see this, this, this, this, this,this, this, this, this, this, this and this) that the Egyptian military used the crack down on Occupy as justification for the murder of protesters in Tahir Square, Egypt.
Indeed, there is overwhelming evidence that the U.S. is quickly drifting into tyranny. See this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this and this.
We would argue that the problem of tyranny goes beyond Obama, or the Neocons or Strauss or even Schmitt.
The problem is that 4% of the the population are psychopaths. Unless people evolve to the point where they can spot the sociopaths in our midst, we will continue to be controlled by them, and to suffer at their hands.
Why We Are Drifting Towards Fascism (And What We Can Do About It)
Ultimately, we are drifting towards fascism because the majority of people aren’t standing up for ourselves. We are letting the authoritarians have their way.
The good news is that the longest-running sociological study ever shows that only 25% of people are authoritarians. And most people arenot psychopaths.
We need not be victims to the psychopaths who would want to control us. We can evolve and empower ourselves.
At a deeper level, if we are disconnected from out own thoughts, our own feelings and our own soul, then we will look to others to tell us what to do. We will follow the strong leader protecting us from imagined crises and made up enemies, as advocated by Schmitt and Strauss.
Only a re-connection with ourselves, our communities and our souls will act as antibodies to the insane ramblings of those who would manipulate us in order to gain total control over society and to carry out their infantile fantasy of destroying all enemies.
Schmitt, Strauss, Yoo and all of the other boneheads who have adopted a crazed disconnection from reality are worshippers of “thanatos” … the “drive towards death” diagnosed by Freud and others. Many of themwrite lustfully about the beauty of the noble death on the battlefield.
Sanity lies in reconnection with the beauty of the everyday: the beauty of nature, of lovers, of children, of community, of an intellectual insight, of a brilliant engineering breakthrough, of a life of service, of art, of quiet prayer and meditation.
We need to reconnect with the beauty of life … and the fact that deep down inside (despite different clothes, languages and customs) everyone’s blood is red, and everyone wants the same basic things: a little food, a little comfort, a little love, a little inspiration.
In the end, the brutal murderers and tyrants are children. Real menstand up to fascism.
Fear makes people stupid and cowardly … and willing to follow the authoritarian leader into the depths of hell. On the other hand, real courage and strength comes from love for life and passion.
Insanity may be contagious. But courage is contagious as well. And as scared as we may be of the powers-that-be, they’re even more terrified of us.
Love and courage are the antitodes: they are what make us fully human, and able to defeat the psychosis of Schmitt, Strauss and the perennial crazies who would crush humanity.
