So I see other posts and almost want to drift off topic. Hegelian Dialectics = problem, action, solution. If you are not reading the entirety of this thread, my response is one long running one where you have to look at posts 2, 23, 26, 29, and 43 to see what all this typing is about.I'm looking for ward to the later!
The question is, Why would any governmental body, organization, or power structure create a problem just to solve it? In order to answer that, I have to go back down Memory Lane. Humor me on this:
In 1987 some friends and I organized the Militia of Georgia. It was the largest and remains the most continuous civilian militia in the United States (though admittedly a shell of its former self.) We aligned ourselves with the Georgia Patriot Network which called itself a constitutional study group. I began renting the banquet room twice monthly in a restaurant called Ryan's Steak House. Once a month the Georgia Patriot Network would meet and have at least one featured speaker. The John Birch Society were regulars as were tax protesters, gun Rights speakers, people fighting eminent domain abuse, people who were against National ID, etc., etc. If it meant fighting big government, you could come and speak to a captive audience. The other meeting each month focused more on the militia, but still had speakers from the Georgia Patriot Network.
In my mind, we were fighting big government. In about 1998 / 1999 Alex Jones came out with Police State 2000. Police State was a video proving that the U.S. military was working with foreign militaries on U.S. soil doing things like house to house - search and seizure exercises. My own U.S. Congressman at the time, John Linder introduced the Fair Tax. I won a couple of fights against SSN based ID. In short we were killing it.
When 9 / 11 happened (and sorry, but I believe it was allowed to happen - even if those who allowed it to happen didn't know how severe it was really going to be.) I believe it because the globalists already had the legislation ready to deal with the aftermath. For instance, the so - called "Patriot Act" was passed in only six and half weeks after 9 / 11. ANYBODY who thinks a bill can be written, researched, shepardized, re written, etc. and consists of 300 pages that can withstand most of the scrutiny of the judges doesn't know squat about civics. BTW, I had spoken at one of Rep. John Linder's Town Hall Meetings in 1998 and said that a major terrorist attack would be launched against America and most intelligence agencies were aware of the danger, but doing very little to stop it.
Linder laughed at me and chided me, asking why would they do that? When I reminded him that most Americans wanted rid of the income tax and that globalists wanted us to have National ID, Linder scoffed and said I read too many Internet rumors (actually nothing I said that day came from any Internet source.) But, on the 10th day of September 2001 approximately 86 percent of Americans were against National ID. They were opposed to the income tax and the Socialist Surveillance Number ...ooops "Social Security Number" AND there were more people involved in both monitoring the government and preparing for various apocalyptic scenarios than at any time in my life (before or since.)
The day after 9 / 11 attitudes changed rapidly and people were looking for all kinds of pretexts, settling on immigration - and for what reason, I don't understand. Within weeks after 9 / 11. Interest in the Fair Tax began to dwindle, National ID went from 86 percent of ALL Americans against it, to most for it. And, when Ranch Rescue got their butts kicked in court, the government became the good guys; our new boogeyman became people called "illegal aliens" and I attribute it to one major thing:
IN MY OPINION, the intelligence community knew a 9 / 11 event was being planned. I think they underestimated how successful the attackers would be. But, that event gave the globalists all the ammo they needed to flip the right. Today, there are no Liberties that Trump supporters won't surrender; no infringement they won't endure if they can just get the wall up. And the real issue is, while the xenophobes with Socialist, National Socialist and Communist "solutions" (if you can call regression a solution) are worried about a freaking wall, we are losing ground on Gun Rights, eminent domain abuse, the Right to Privacy, the loss of the presumption of innocence / innocent until proven guilty, and the Freedom of Association. Instead, we are settling for racial / cultural profiling (setting the stage for when the posterity of the founders /framers will be haunted by their own bad decisions); the right now wants the National ID / REAL ID Act E Verify, womb to the tomb surveillance, a government god that will review our every purchase and our every decision to make sure they will "allow" it.
Thesis - Immigrants from south of the border are destroying America
Anti-thesis - Implementation of National Socialist talking points to justify the chaos, confusion, and controversy
Synthesis - Forfeiture of the Bill of Rights in exchange for a silly wall ... the ironic part, the wall will be torn down within two election cycles of its completion (if it's completed at all.)
