I guess its all true . . .
They can't win as long as we remain resolute... they hope that we will loose resolve or that they can corrupt enough of us to roll over and commit suicide by decadence, so as to defeat us... they know that can't happen -- the laws of averages are against them... they know this too, but still they try, the lure of absolute power and control is that strong.
This is why the founders were so set against hereditary succession in government. Even the most benevolent and kind of rulers could be counted on to eventually sire a monster... victor Hugo said it best when he stated, "Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters."
America set up a diversified system that will soon correct itself from the common ranks. Because, by law it is from the common man that the power comes and back to which it goes. It is defused so widely and diversely in America, that Lincoln's quotes have real meaning,"You can fool all of the people some of the time,
and some of the people all of the time, but you
can never fool all the people all the time.""We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress
and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but
to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution."
In any case, as I observed in my article; "A pre-election primer and Constitutional proviso"...
"The Founders set up the 1st Amendment so religion could never become
a divisive tool of faction to destroy the People’s government. If only they
could have foreseen how powerful corporations would accomplish the
same terrible deed -- to manipulate, direct, and control government to the
detriment of the people and the destruction of Liberty."
This will be corrected soon by the people, using the Constitution itself -- I have strong faith of this. Madison weighed in on the corporate/commercial subject rather severely in his words below.
