Question, when does their dictator become more of a dictator than our dictator? Answer, when our dictator is in his last term and has nothing to lose.
Libya under Mr. Gaddafi, was Africa’s most prosperous democracy. Their government was much more responsive to the people than the United States. In fact, Libya has the United States beat on the on the issue of democracy prior to the assassination of Gaddafi. That does not seem possible but the fundamental difference between the United States democratic systems and Libya’s Jamahiriya’s direct democracy is that in Libya, citizens were given the chance to contribute directly to the political decision-making process.
The United States has a very tightly controlled indirect form of democracy. Americans have no say in how the government is run. Americans only get to pretend to elect the “criminals” who are running this country into the ground. In contrast, all Libyans were allowed to voice their views directly, just not in one parliament of only a few hundred elite politicians, but in hundreds of committees attended by tens of thousands of ordinary citizens. Far from being a military dictatorship, Libya, before the murder of Gaddafi, was the most prosperous and democratic nation in Africa.
The Numbers Don’t Lie
The government of Gaddafi brought the Libyan government from poverty and debt, to prosperity and debt-free status in 41 years. In Libya, healthcare is free and Libyan pharmacies and hospitals are comparable to high-grade European medical facilities. This contrasts with America, where our death by doctor fatalities reached 225,000 last year.
Unlike America, where we horde our wealth to the tune of $128 trillion of underground resources (e.g. oil, natural gas, etc.), Gaddafi’s oil-revenue-sharing program helped bring a good measure of prosperity to each Libyan as they receive $500 (Dollars) deposited into his or her bank account each month. Did you know that if the first bail out to Wall Street had been applied to America’s home mortgages, all Americans would now own their homes free and clear? Speaking of homes, when Libyans marry, each couple is gifted $60,000 to do with as they please. In America, we double tax our couples under the so-called marriage penalty tax.
Unlike America, where college tuition costs rose at a rate eight times faster than the cost of living, Education from grade school through to college is free in Libya and the Libyan government paid for college students to study specialty subjects overseas.
Libya gives free land and seeds to anyone who wants to farm that land. In America, we “swat team” raw dairy farmers, organic food producers and the Amish. Meanwhile, farmers are increasingly being forced to use unlabeled, cancer-causing, GMO seeds. Forty loaves of bread cost just $0.15 at the time of Libya’s revolution. The prices for our food staples have doubled over the past 18 months.
At the time of Gaddafi’s assassination, the price of gas was around $0.14 per gallon. Meanwhile American gas prices are approaching between five and six dollars for a gallon of gas. The major reason gas prices are exploding is because our dollar is losing value. The world is running from the dollar. The stock market is greatly escalating. If you know your 1929 history, you know what lies next.
Libyan working mothers enjoyed a range of benefits including cash bonuses for children, free day care, free health care centers, and retirement at 55. In America, our medical industrial establishment makes as difficult as possible to raise a child. American retirement age will soon go to 70 and Obama has designs on stealing our pensions, IRA’s and 401K’s.
Losing Our Rights To Protect US From Al Qaeda
For years, our politicians, who stole our constitutional rights, told the American sheep that “AL-Qaeda” was the big enemy in the “War on Terror”. This is very reminiscent of what happened in Libya in the days after the toppling of Gaddafi. At the time, the Daily Mail and other international media organizations posted pictures of the black AL-Qaeda flag flying high and proud over the courthouse in Benghazi. Then our Ambassador was murdered to cover up the fact that he ran CIA guns to al Qaeda in the Gaddafi overthrow.
Russia is now openly accusing the West of using Al Qaeda as their direct, militant proxies in this latest attempt to purposefully provoke and incite Muslims across the Arab World is an attempt by the West to reestablish the appearance that the US and Israel are at war with sectarian extremists, not partnered with them.The Russians have Obama’s number.
The Middle East Wars Really About Forcing the World Into Dollars and Private Central Banking
Attorney Ellen Brown argues, in the Asia Times, that Libya, like Iraq, under Hussein, challenged the supremacy of the dollar and the Western banks. The plan to take out seven countries in five years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran. On the periphery of this enemies list is also Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea.
Isn’t that interesting that the Axis of Evil nations, as we call them, have one thing in common. What is it that these countries have in common? In the context of banking, one fact that sticks out is that none of them is listed among the 56 member banks of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). This puts them outside the long regulatory arm of the central bankers’ central bank in Switzerland. To some degree, the avoidance of being a debt slave to the central banksters is not permitted and such violators risk having the full force of the US military being brought down upon them to enforce the “right” for the central bankers to force involuntary servitude their holy order.
Lincoln attempted to use Greenbacks as currency and was shot in the head.
JFK printed “C-notes” which would have eventually debased the Federal Reserve Dollar and he was also shot in the head
Hussein was selling only for Euro’s not the Petrodollar and now he’s dead
Gaddafi was talking about a gold Dinar and not using the Petrodollar and now he’s dead.
Soon, Assad of Syria will be dead for the same reasons.
Iranian leadership is selling oil for gold to Russia, China and India. Soon Iran will be invaded and their leaders will be killed.
As the Obama administration indiscriminately kills thousands of people in places such as Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan with drone strikes, we now know that they are preparing to do the same to American citizens. Our “Fast and Furious” Attorney General, Eric Holder, recently announced that Obama can do the same to Americans. Meanwhile, at the time of Gaddafi’s death, the United Nations designated Libya the 53rd highest in the world in human development. I never thought I would write the words in which I marveled at how Libyans were treated better by Gaddafi than Americans are by Obama. Make no mistake about it, Gaddafi was a thug, but a thug who provided more for his people on a comparative per capita basis than Obama does for the American people. What does it say that a known terrorist is more compassionate towards his people that Obama? Perhaps, it is Obama who is the real terrorist. And what has become of Libya since Gaddafi’s death? They are headed back to the Dark Ages courtesy of the central banker sponsored Al-Qaeda who now runs the country. Have you noticed that anything these central bankers touch turns to pure manure? If our country ever gets disassembled in the same manner, Libya provides a good barometer of what lies ahead for most Americans.
The world, has indeed, been turned upside down.
