Passing of America
By Vincent L. Guarisco
"To the extent that the United States was governed by
anyone during the decades after World War Il, it was governed
by the President acting with the support and cooperation of
key individuals and groups in the executive office, the federal
bureaucracy, Congress, and the more important businesses,
banks, law firms, foundations, and media, which constitute
the private sector's 'Establishment'." - Samuel Huntington,
Harvard professor and political scientist.
Is America dying? Or is it being murdered - with malice
and forethought? When counting the many poisonous movers and
shakers this administration has degenerately planted for our
perishable condition, and after disturbingly examining powerful
spheres of neo-conservative think tanks and lobbyists, and
taking into consideration their ability to blueprint and bribe
the implementation of foreign and domestic policy; I consider
America lethally injected, and this editorial may very well
be our official obituary notice.
Am I overreacting? Nope, I don't think so, In fact, by telling
you this I feel like I'm notifying my next of kin that a loved
one has just perished from a long and painful terminal illness.
Amazing how us writers become inspired or compelled to write.
In retrospect, when I sat down in front of my keyboard this
morning I didn't say to myself, "gee, today I think I'll be
a pallbearer carrying our nation's coffin," on the contrary,
I started to write a follow-up article about electronic voting
machines and the high possibility of us getting bilked again
in 2004 (a topic I've been very concerned about). Instead,
I embarked on a higher mission for a more comprehensive understanding
of how we became infected with this chronic sequence of tanking
thought, I surfed the web for answers and found a lethal dose
of information that tied the proverbial toe-tag that ushered
our gurney into the mortuary realm.
The Christian Science Monitor recently published
a listing of neo-conservative think-tanks and key documents
- each one dedicated to a new imperialistic "world order,"
and each one a potential nail in the coffin of democracy as
we know it. Here is a partial list from (CSM) that I highly
recommend reading. While researching this list consider yourself
a forensic investigator who is performing an autopsy looking
for clues, examine each category as if it was a puncture wound
or a bad kidney or perhaps a damaged spleen etc. My prognoses
was "spontaneous combustion," but don't take my word
for it, be your own doctor:
Project for the New American Century (PNAC)
American Enterprise Institute (AEI)
Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA)
Center for Security Policy (CSP)
The Hudson Institute
The Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies
Ethics and Public Policy Center
The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies
(CSM) "Key Documents"
Draft of the 1992 "Defense Planning Guidance" [excerpts]
"A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm 1996"
"Toward a Neo-Reaganite foreign policy"
PNAC letter to Clinton
PNAC letter to Bush
President Bush's speech to AEI
"Beyond the Axis of Evil"
Sooner or later all pieces of the epidemic puzzle nuzzle
into their proper perspective for diagnosed clarity. Eventually
you acquire a Kevorkian-type realization that think-tank ideas
(that plague our society) alarmingly germinate. They don't
just multiply, they transform into spores that atomize and
become airborne floating with the prevailing winds like an
evil fairy-dust that settles onto political coffers. Then
the little drug-pushing minions (the lobbyists) load it into
their hypodermic needles and inject it into the bloodstream
of politicians and policymakers. Make no mistake about it;
after the needle is applied, and they receive their monetary
candy, it creates an addictive habit-forming heroin rush that
is not only lethal, but also contagious. Almost every representative
who holds a title in office - be it congressman, senator,
legislator, lawmaker, or commander-in-chief - have one thing
in common: they have all been influenced, manipulated and
infected by the above-mentioned entities.
In addition to researching the information I have provided,
memorize the names of the architects who engineered these
insane agendas and ideologies, for they are the bubonic handlers
of our destruction, the rock, scissors and paper of our endgame.
These New American Century Men are the grand puppeteers of
gentility who blueprint our future wars and policies; without
a doubt, they are the head of the snake.
It's bad enough that we have created our own gloom and doom,
but remember that floating-spore factor I spoke of earlier?
It not only affects us at home, it finds its way into the
jet stream thus impacting all other nations around us creating
a chilling domino factor. This is too unfair a weight for
the world to burden.
Who knows, perhaps someone (in the know) wiser than myself
may offer a cure for all of this to counter my having to write
It's not my intention to portray the grim reaper of commentary
without at least offering one positive alternative scenario
to counter "ashes to ashes, dust to dust." Perhaps the one
glimmer of resuscitated hope would be if a massive revolutionary
movement caught steam, and a modern day Emancipation Proclamation
was birthed and added to our constitution to protect us from
the powerful private-sector's establishment, because as it
stands right now; the majority of us are slaves to the grave
in this time of absolute darkness, a very dark place where
equality of life, peace and prosperity, and the pursuit of
happiness does not exist.
