Some last words from me...
by Peter Stern
We have come to the point where there is little hope for the populace. It is going to be a long, bitter cold Winter for many people.
For too many decades Americans have been too complacent. They have permitted their leaders to manipulate the system for the benefit of wealthy special interests. It is now too late to do anything, as neither party learns from its own history and the beat goes on.
I have been writing almost daily for the past decade on various issues and I plan to stop. It has been a long, frustrating series of events that have culminated in my acknowledgment that there is little we can do to change things. Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower was correct in his warning of the pending doom of Democracy by the arrogant and greedy Industrial/Military Complex, which has shifted to the Corporate/Military Complex.
Without a strong and prospering Middle Class our representative democracy is lost and we will never get it back short of another massive rebellion by the people. The people do not have the means to win in such an attempt because the Corporate/Military Complex is too strong.
