Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Quotes from Information Clearing House's Daily Email

"Under the influence of politicians, masses of people tend to ascribe
the responsibility for wars to those who wield power at any given time.
In World War I it was the munitions industrialists; in World War II it
was the psychopathic generals who were said to be guilty. This is
passing the buck.

The responsibility for wars falls solely upon the shoulders of these
same masses of people, for they have all the necessary means to avert war
in their own hands. In part by their apathy, in part by their
passivity, and in part actively, these same masses of people make possible the
catastrophes under which they themselves suffer more than anyone else.
To stress this guilt on the part of the masses of people, to hold them
solely responsible, means to take them seriously. On the other hand, to
commiserate masses of people as victims, means to treat them as small,
helpless children. The former is the attitude held by genuine freedom
fighters; the latter that attitude held by power-thirsty politicians." :
Wilhelm Reich, The Mass Psychology of Fascism

"It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country
is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificually
induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda
of fear."
—General Douglas MacArthur, Speech, May 15, 1951
