I would prefer a military coup than allow the 1% to own me.

Of course there is the real danger that the military is completely owned by the Robber Barons as well. Perhaps the Generals and Admirals are as heavily infiltrated/influenced as Congress is, but perhaps they are not. One thing we know for sure. Congress is definitely a group of 1% puppets.

Regardless, we are too far down the road for FDR's vision to ever happen in our lifetime. The dreadful changes have been too many and too drastic to overcome. Our Democracy's eventual demise is within clear view now. We will eventually be forced to pick a side.

If I have to be ruled by dictators, I would just as soon they be dictators that had to earn their position instead a of dictator that inherited his position from daddy. At least there would be a more sane structure to it all.

I know what some of you are thinking. Oppressed is oppressed regardless of who is doing it. I'm just stating my preference for who will eventually own me. I'm sure the early African American slaves had preferences as well.

If the time comes, I'm backing the military. You never know. They could potentially have the best of intentions. They could reassure us (like Egypt's military did to their people) and take temporary control until true Democracy is restored.

The more I think about it, the more I believe it is the only way that true Democracy could ever be restored. Otherwise, we ride the slippery slope to the 1700's again. The only current difference is that we have foreigners "pick cotton" in their country instead of ours. Multiple work related deaths is simply the cost of doing business. Really, it isn't that big of a jump to just bring them over here again. Cheaper logistics. These "work permits" are the first step. It is the natural evolution of things. Small incremental changes over time.

I never felt this way until President Obama and Democratic Party recently gave me the feeling that I'm actually living the book "Animal Farm."
