There are two articles at Atlas Shrugs that are indicative of the temper of our times. The first is one that reveals the treachery that is written into the Dems opposition to the Patriot Act. The second goes straight at the perfidy of the Dems and their seeking to use the war and dead US servicemen for their political advantage. This is the same pattern that they followed with the Vietnam war. They will exploit the “No guns for oil” mis-characterization and variations to the point of exhaustion. The endgame for all this is power. George Soros wants to control the politics in the USA the same way he is setting up agencies in Europe to control that arena. There are unbelievable amounts of money to be made in currency trading, which is Soros’ game. If you can control the government, you can control the economy thereby funneling huge amounts of money into your own pocket. Think I’m paranoid? Google “George Soros” and read about his efforts in Europe.
