Think your elected officials are anything but stooges trained to read NWO talking point memos?
They do what they are told when they are told to do it.
You don't control your own economy, your country, it's military nor are you permitted anything other than the illusion of choice. Yanks can vote for either kosher approved CFR stamped stooge - Obama or McCain. Ron Paul and Alan Keyes are forbidden to you. It's smoke and mirrors to keep the peasants in their place.
Freedom was greater under the Soviet Commissars.
The reason I like our current Prime Minister in Australia is that I know he is a socialist wonk. I also know that is by and large all he is. I don't have to worry about him swearing oaths of fealty to a half dozen offshore countries I could care less about. I know his loyalties lie with his own nation. A little socialism is not much to bear up under compared to the "leaders" other Western nations are saddled with. You never really knew who John Howard or Tony Blair was working for. They always had a sly little grin like it was all part of the secret club handshake.
