What This Election Was About…

Silver dipped into $28 territory briefly. Gold is at $1400.

This 2010 mid-term election was more a referendum on the Democrats’ past two years of majority rule and what they’ve managed to accomplish. 

Now… John Boehner, the new Speaker of the House-elect, says that he is in favor of raising the retirement age to 70 just to continue financing the wars.  http://www.infowars.com/john-boehner-says-in-order-to-pay-for-the-wars-we-need-to-raise-the-social-security-retirement-age-to-70/  AHEM!  John!  Go back and listen to the people!  You were put there to close down all of these entangling military adventures, bring the soldiers HOME and put them to work enforcing our border security!  Go talk to Rand Paul!  He’ll tell you what we want!  Pay attention, dammit!

Right now we’re embroiled in two wars of occupation that were unjustified to begin with… the military is sending predator drones well into Pakistan to kill people, and the drumbeats for expanding these war fronts to Yemen and Iran are playing in the mass media. We can’t afford the wars on Iraq and Afghanistan, so we darn-sure can’t afford wars on 5 fronts! This is insanity!

It appears that the Republicans don’t get what this election was about… if they don’t turn it around and start cutting ALL the spending, beginning with all these wars (supporting the military industrial establishment with no-bid contracts… all off the official budget), then the Republicans will find themselves at odds with the Tea Parties and their candidates… and that is something they really are not equipped to handle. If the Republicans don’t drop the business-as-usual loot-and-plunder neocon approach that got them ousted back in 2008, they are going to have real problems. This may very well be where the Tea Party achieves true 3rd party status, as predicted by Gerald Celente.

Boehner… you got 2 years to get it right.  Repeal Obamacare, bring the troops home, secure the borders, get rid of NAFTA and GATT, raise some import tariffs, drop taxes for the companies employing people here in the U.S, at least audit the Federal Reserve, get rid of a bunch of alphabet-soup agencies that can’t pull their own weight, and get the hell out of the way!
