We now live in a heavy-handed surveillance state with weaponized police departments and Federal agencies. Everything coming from the government is wrong or outright lies including:
- "fake" job statistics,
- inflation lies, real-world inflation is between 7% and 10% in category after category but the govt reports less than 2% inflation. What a joke!
- misleading economic "growth" statistics; if you subtract debt creation, our economy is mired in an economic depression since 2008. The truth is that "government" is destroying our economy AND culture.
- our government's near universal meddling in other country's economies elections, in coup d'etats, and policies,
- the "soundness" of our entitlement programs,
- border "security," Also see here, here and here.
- rising debt,
- the massive propaganda media complex which includes the CIA's long-standing role in manipulating the network news,
- the failures of the war on poverty, the government is "helping" blacks like they "helped" the native Americans in the 1800s.
- the drug war failure,
- it's the government itself that is creating huge wealth inequalities
- in it's effort to conquer the business cycle, the government is debasing our money, destabilizing our finances and economy creating two devastating financial crises in the past 18 years with another on the way.
- Our Federal Reserve is now the root of evil
For example, look at the chart below. Note that prices of everything that is manipulated by "government" (red) is rising un-sustainably. Also note that prices subject to true market forces (blue) have been coming down.
Conclusion: remind me why socialism is so great again? And when everything falls apart and truly fails, The Left will assert, as it always does, that Big Govt is NOT the problem, it was just that we didn't have the right people in charge. Those that never learn are, unintentionally or not, evil.
