Former Gang Members Are Talking . . . We Should Listen

Pop Quiz.

Who would be able to predict the behavior of a gang better:

(1) A former high-level gang member who has recently left

or (2) A social worker?

Let's say the former gang member says that the gang has changed its philosophy and "business model", and -- while formerly non-violent -- is now going to engage in many murders in order to expand its turf.

I would argue the former gang member would know where the gang is headed better than the social worker.

Okay, who would know better where the Republican leadership is heading -- Democrats and professional pundits or such current and former high-level republicans as:

• Respected retired supreme court justice and Republican Sandra Day O'Connor, who warned of dictatorship in a recent speech

• Former high-level Republican politician, Paul Craig Roberts, called one of the most influential modern conservatives, who says that the current administration is heading towards fascism

• Current U.S. Republican congressman Ron Paul, who says that the U.S. is close to dictatorship

Former gang members are talking . . . we should listen.

Of course, many conservatives are intelligent people of good faith and moral character. But the conservative movement has been taken over by NEOconservatives, who are as different from true conservatives as they are from liberals. Indeed, many neoconservatives are former MARXISTS (Google it; its true).

A more accurate analogy might be a social club which then turns into a criminal gang, and a former high-level member of the social club is warning about the conversion to a gang. I used the gang analogy only because it is a powerful image with which people can relate viscerally.

By the way, I will blast the Democrats in a future essay -- they are no better than the Republicans.

They claim we have a "two party" system. It looks to me more like one big party at our expense.

No difference just seperate arms of the same monster. cxx_guy got it right. One big corporate part at our expense. And our grandchildren's also.
I want to recommend Alex Jones' video titled "End Game" on google videos. I know most of you have already seen it but just want to mention it. Thanks to George Washington's Blog too. Glad I ran across it.
