It's been a few years since the Red v. Blue dialectic was first tested in America and I think it kind of fizzled out the same way the Third Way did. But now it's back, and this time Americans are falling for it with a vengence. Forums and articles with "Sarah" as the topic are filled with comments that rudely disparage her, her family, and more often lately, all the Alaskan people.
I think we're capable of being led into a civil war over this coming election. War is the ultimate dialectical tool. If groups of people who all share one nation can be convinced to hate each other enough to take up arms against each other, it opens the door to intervention and regime change. Everytime I see an article about ballot fraud I get the feeling no matter which side wins in Nov, the other side will scream "fraud." Then maybe all the people who have been brainwashing my countrymen into hating Alaska will organize peaceful protests that "somehow" turn into rioting.
To me, the financial crisis is perfectly timed to co-incide with the changes that must occur in the US before the global government can take full control of the world economy. While much of the world is somewhat aware of their international communitarian integration requirements, the US citizenry remains completely in the dark about the transformation taking place.
Millions of Americans still believe that voting for Obama/Biden or McCain/Palin can help save America. Thousands of comments suggest that people voting for the "other side" are traitors. We're seeing a lot more "fighting words." As a former bartender, I recognise the kinds of stupid arguments that will lead to blows if they aren't distracted into something less violent.
The most blatant mistake being made about Alaska:
Sarah Palin did not give us all $3000.00 to vote for her. The pfd was created under Governor Jay Hammond and the original plan was to pay the dividends based on longevity. That would have meant the old timers would have had a nice retirement and the natives wouldn't need so many federal grants to survive. Two New York lawyers called the Zobels came up and filed a lawsuit. Then Alaska had to split it equally with everyone who had lived here for one year. The ruling was based on the freedom Americans have to move from state to state and to take up residence anywhere in the union. (Alaskan bumpersticker in 1982-"We got Zobelfucked")
It's like Alaska is on trial for being unfamiliar and different from the rest of the country. It's a pretty stupid reason to attack a diverse population of strangers, but it's working anyway. It's freakydeaky that suddenly we're supposed to be the refuge state for the Christian Zionists who want a front row seat to Armageddon. But religious wars do create the most passion for bloodshed, don't they? Maybe the feminists will lead the army up the Alcan Highway.
Nordica's friends say they want to punch Sarah Palin in the face.
In answer to the question is is cold here yet? Yes.
