RE-MAKING AMERICA FOR Y'ALL, WELL, SOME OF Y'ALL
"Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the Presidential election:
Number of States won
Democrats: 19, Republicans: 29
Square miles of land won
Democrats: 580,000, Republicans: 2,427,000
Population of counties won
Democrats: 127 million, Republicans: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won
Democrats: 13.2, Republicans: 2..1
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Republican won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country. Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.
If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty-million criminal invaders called illegal's and they vote, then we can say good-bye to the USA in fewer than five years. "
This, if true, is interesting and provocative. The white man's burden, it seems, has got down from his back, as it were and is kicking his ass up and down Main Street; this, paraphrased, is the essence of the cries of Mr Old Holborn and many in cyberspace - Londonistan!.
A racially fractured nation, rooted in genocide, slavery, ethnic cleansing and white supremacy (niggers have been lynched in recent memory) - all dressed-up as the pursuit of Freedom, cannot really complain if those shut-out from the three-pounds-of-beef with every meal, greedy, stupid, aggressive, redneck zeitgeist revolt into political conformity and elect their very own, useless, oily, sound-biting Uncle Tom.
Although in the UK we do not share Uncle Sam's recent internal history of sanctimonious, flag-waving barbarism, Olsen's stats, nevertheless, would probably transpose neatly to UK electoral demographics. Many are, through employment or housing or benefits, part of a ballooning client demographic, many have allegiance to other states; many, with very good reason, detest and fear the spectre of a gang of coke-sniffing, cost-cutting, over-privileged, right-wing chancers and layabouts; all view state provision of myriad forms of care as being one side of a compact in which they don't complain as long as government continues to transfer to them, via taxation, an increasing share of the profits of non-governmental enterprise; who can blame them?
Many in the blogosphere were confident that Codger McCain would stroll into the White House, the heat of their own conceit blinding them to the obvious. The same cyber-psephologists babble incessantly that because Gordon Brown is such an arsehole, David Cameron must, therefore, become First Lord of the Treasury and Keeper Pursuivant of Her Majesty's Bolivian Nose Powder; there are no musts.
If it is the case that a sufficient number of constituencies are quite sensibly joined at the hip to NewLabour's cynical largesse and that all those so outraged by Blair, Brown and Mandelson and by the general swinishness of the houses of parliament are dispersed, fuming and impotent, then New Cameronia will remain a pipe dream, so to speak.
Brown, the horrible fucking bastard, mincing and pouting and gurning,bullying, stuttering his obnoxious, impossibly know-it-all sol-you-shuns, is probably on his last legs; given, however, that unlike the Messiah in the White House, he can be removed at any time by a vote of no confidence but hasn't been, his position is clearly not as weak as we like to think. Despite his unprecedented beggaring of the nation for decades to come, despite the fact that everything else he touches turns, also, to shit, is it not nothing less than miraculous that the fuckwit Cameron has not been able to engineer Brown's removal, is this not what politicians are supposed to be good at, deals, betrayals, black arts ? But today Brown -and, of course the utterly repellent Brummie Hobbit, Woolass - is defeated by Nick Haircut of the preposterous LibDems and Cameron is seen, elbowing-in, grandstanding with Cleggie and Lumley; hardly Churchillian, typically Cameronian, all that was missing was his bike and his chauffered limo, the impudent, jumped-up, worthless airhead.
Barack celebrates, if that's the word, a hundred days of Yes-We-Can shoring-up Mammon, exporting terror and pissing in the faces of the poor whilst white America seethes at it's loss of exclusive access and pre-eminent influence. Before writing off the NewLabour Project we should reconsider the recent US experience. Her Majesty's Official Opposition is so feeble that all NewLabour really needs to do is ditch Snotman and find an Obama figure. Someone like Tony Blair.
