Towards a new civilization.

The evil system that keeps on ticking.

Communism+capitalism=consumerism

The globalist international moment that never lost its way. It was funded by international commerce elites (jews! Jews! Jews!), staffed with international billionaires (more jews!) And their children, and held together by an uneasy mating of the anarchist demand for unlimited rights, the socialist demand for someone else to pay for those rights, and the one monetary system that works discovered so far, consumerism. As it turns out communism and capitalism may not be enemies, but best buddies, in a compromised form. Welcome to black run america, a nation founded, built, funded, and created by whites, whose sole purpose today is funding the inability of its black and increasingly brown populations non-purpose. Meaning whites pay taxes, it funds their racial dispossession as they are the only group that posses a threat to those same elites world feudal domination. As we live through Americas final years as a sovereign nation, the forces of financialization, state redistribution management and manipulation of crises, weave together their end game scenario, collapse of the western (white) civilization through endless positives feed-back loop of perceived grievances against the only group of humans to build a civilization, by way of white guilt, entitlements, and the nuclear option, global war.

Fear not, the financial elites (JEWS!) have already lost, their only chance of victory failed when they allowed their natural greed for wealth overtake their ability to maintain balance in America, with the most heavily armed population on the planet, and all attempts to disarm its populace have failed, the only course of action is collapse and an ethnic cleansing of the lower 48 by ALL possible means, (meaning nuking los angeles, and other minority-majority cities) in an effort to wipe their population centers off the face of the earth. Then passing a military-financial-territorial-social alliance with mainly Europe and Russia, unifying the nation states of our people into a single global civilization. All previous attempts at this merger has failed (last attempt was Rome) but now thank you democrats! Thank you so much, I really mean it, we couldn’t have done it without you!

Without the civil rights moment, welfare, and immigration inflicting irreparable damage to the nations of the west, stripping our culture, citizenship, and birthright from our people we would have continued to view ourselves not as White Men of the Europa but as the lowly american, german, Spanish, sweetish, Russian men of dying nations. If it weren’t for you democrats America might have remained stable another 40 years until our total replacement as its core population, now with America heading off the cliff towards the abyss below, the peoples of the Earth will be free to look after their own collective interests and those of the only identity we can fall back to, racial identity.

Enough talk of we are one nation, Amerika is dead, long live Europa. A civilization destroyed by diversity, liberalism, globalism, and multiculturalism will be anything but, when a new civilization rises from the ashes of the culture enricher’s and their hebrew emissaries of materialism (T.H.E.M. aka jews!).

In the end Malcolm X was right! He said every race no matter the consequences wants to rule itself, same applies to whites, blacks, yellows, browns, and reds! Everyone wants to decide their own destiny, to be free and sovereign on to themselves. So let’s ALL stand for true freedom! Freedom of association, freedom of commerce, freedom of the rights of warfare.

One last word, if you don’t want us to be free, and for us decide who lives within our nations, meaning who goes back to asia, latin America, and africa, you are free to marshal your armies, stand against us in open warfare on the battlefield and fight to the death for lands we rightfully conquered from lesser peoples. Its as simple as that! We shall ask for no mercy, you shouldn’t expect any from us, and as you have done to us, we shall do ten fold to you, and no my “friends” women and children are not off the table, time for the old ways to return.

I can’t wait for the fun stuff to begin.

Only one last thought, what should we rename Africa when we move its current population on to reservation?

Have a nice day.

5 Stages of the Awakening and Top 5 Places NOT To Be When The Dollar Collapses

Top 5 Places

NOT To Be When The Dollar Collapses

http://dont-tread-on.me/5-stages-of-the-awakening/

http://dont-tread-on.me/top-5-places-not-to-be-when-the-dollar-collapses/

The dollar collapse will be the single largest event in human history. This will be the first event that will touch every single living person in the world. All human activity is controlled by money. Our wealth, our work, our food, our government, even our relationships are affected by money. No money in human history has had as much reach in both breadth and depth as the dollar. It is the de facto world currency. All other currency collapses will pale in comparison to this big one. All other currency crises have been regional and there were other currencies for people to grasp on to. This collapse will be global and it will bring down not only the dollar but all other fiat currencies, as they are fundamentally no different. The collapse of currencies will lead to the collapse of ALL paper assets. The repercussions to this will have incredible results worldwide. (Read the Silver Bullet and the Silver Shield to protect yourself from this collapse.)

Thanks to the globalization and the giant vampire squids of the Anglo-American Empire, the dollar is the world’s reserve currency. It supports the global economy in settling foreign trade, most importantly the Petro Dollar trade. This money is recycled through the City of London (not to be confused with London) and New York. This fuels our corporate vampires that acquires and harvests the wealth of the world. The corporate powers suppress REAL assets like natural resources and labor to provide themselves massive profits. This Fascist, Statist, Collectivist model provides the money into the economy to fund an ever increasing federal  government. That government then grows larger and larger enriching its minions with jobs to control their fellow citizens. Finally, to come full circle, the government then controls other nations through the Military Industrial Complex.

This cycle will be cut when the mathematically and inevitable collapse of the dollar occurs. In order for our debt based money to function we MUST increase the debt every year in excess of the debt AND interest accrued the year before or we will enter a deflationary death spiral. When debt is created, money is created. When debt is paid off, money is destroyed. There is never enough to pay off the debt, because there would be not one dollar in existence.

We are at a point where we either default on the debt, willingly or unwillingly, or create more money/debt to keep the cycle moving. The problem is if you understand anything about compounding interest, we are reaching the hockey stick moment where the more debt that is incurred, the less effective it is and this leads us to hyper inflation. There are only two actors needed for this hyper inflation, the Lender of Last Resort, the Fed, and the Spender of Last Resort, the government. These two can, and will, blow up the system. I believe they will wait until the next crisis and the whiff of deflationary depression before they fire up the printing presses. That crisis is coming very soon at the end of this summer or fall. The money and emergency measures are worn out. The fact that NONE of the underlying problems that caused the 2008 crisis have been resolved. The only thing that has happened is that instead of corporate problems, we now have nation problems. In this movie Greece will play the role of Lehman Brothers and the United States will play the role of AIG. The problem is there is nowhere to kick the can down the road and there is no world government to absorb the debt, yet… (Problem, Reaction, Solution.)

So this leads me to the Top 5 Places Not To Be When the Dollar Collapses.

1. Israel- This Anglo-American beach head into the Middle East was first conceived by the most powerful family in the world, the Rothschilds, in 1917. The Balfour Declaration said that there will be a Zionist Israel years before World War two and the eventual establishment of Israel. Israel has not been a good neighbor to its Muslim nations and has always had the two biggest bullies on the block at it’s back. When the dollar collapses, the United States will have much to much on its plate both domestically and internationally to worry about such a non-strategic piece of land. This will leave Israel very weak at a time when tensions will be high. This very thin strip of desert land will not be able to with stand the economic reality of importing its food and fuel or the political reality of being surrounded by Muslims.

2. Southern California- The land of Fruits and Nuts turns into Battlefield Los Angeles. 20 million people packed into an area that has no water and thus food is not good to say the least. Throw on top of the huge wealth disparities and the proximity to a narco state and this does not bode well. We have seen riots for Rodney King, what will happen when the dollar is destroyed and food an fuel stop coming into this area. People will get desperate and do crazy things, especially when a huge proportion of its citizens are on anti depressants. If food and fuel cannot get in, what about Zolfot? At a time when people’s world are falling apart they lack the ability to deal with this new paradigm. If people come off of these drugs too fast they suffer psychotic breaks and you will have thousands of shootings or suicides.

3. England- The Land of the Big Brother and former Empire of world wide slave and drug trade will suffer heavily. The stiff upper lip that their the British Elite ingrained into their sheeple will not work anymore as the British population explodes. The human character will sacrifice and unite for a foreign enemy, but not if the enemy has always been the Elite. The Anglo-American Empire may pull off another false flag to distract it’s population on another Emmanuel Goldstein like in 1984, but I feel this collapse will happen before they pull it off. This will make all eyes point at the British Elite as solely responsible for this catastrophe. We have seen massive riots for soccer matches with hooligans. What will happen when this island with very little food and fuel gets cut off?

4. New York City- Another large urban area living too high on the dollar hog. NYC is the area I moved out of in 2008. There is little doubt that all of the wealth in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut is derivative off of Wall Street wealth. The savings and investments of the whole nation and much of the world flows through this financial capital. As the world wakes up to the massive financial fraud, this will lead to the destruction of capital like we have never seen before. This will have tremendous effects on the regional economy as people driving in Mercedes suddenly wonder where their next meal is coming from.

5. Washington D.C.- The political collapse of the Federal Government will wreak havoc on the hugely inflated local economy. As more and more states find it necessary to assert their natural control, the Federal Government will suddenly loose power and importance as the whole world suffers from a Global Hurricane Katrina. The money that they create and spend, will become worthless and the government minions pensions will evaporate. Millions that once relied on the ability to force others to send their money to them, will learn that the real power has always been at the most local level. Massive decentralization will be the answer to globalization gone mad. Local families and communities will forgo sending money and power out of their community, as they will care about their next meal and keeping warm.

“You can ignore reality, but you can’t ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.” -Ayn Rand

To sum up, those areas that have lived highest on the hog in the dollar paradigm will most likely be the worst places to live when the dollar collapses. Many of you will find this article with passing interest, but rest assured this dollar collapse is coming. It is a mathematical inevitability. We will not be as fortunate to muddle through this collapse like we did in 2008 when it was a corporate problem. This time around, it is a national and global problem. The global Ponzi scheme has run out of gas as the demographics decline, as cheap abundant oil declines, as hegemonic power declines. This comes at a time when we reach the exponential or collapse phase of our money. The Irresistible Force Paradox says, “”What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?” We are about to find out, when infinite money hits a very finite world.

5 Stages of the Awakening

“Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.” -Henry Ford

One of the greatest challenges to becoming Totally Free is to be able to think independently from everyone else. You know instinctively that no one cares about you, as much as you care about yourself.  Yet we constantly listen to others about what is best for us, instead of  thinking about what is best for us.   That is because we live in a world where everyone tells you what to think, but no one tells you how to think. We are blasted everyday with advertising, financial sales pitches, political media propaganda, religious dictates and more and more social pressure to conform.  Most of our lives we don’t make any real decisions we kind of just fall into a routine. You see when you do not really think, you leave your mind open to those who do think. The real and most often unnoticed danger is a class of predators manipulating societies for their own selfish benefits.  If you go along to get along and not think outside of the box, you risk being caught in the undertow of a doomed society or worse.

“In our dreams, people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present education conventions of intellectual and character education, fade from their minds and unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk.  We shall not try to make these people, or any of their children, into philosophers, or men of science. We have not to raise up from them authors, educators, poets or men of letters. We shall not search for great artists, painters, musicians nor lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen — of whom we have an ample supply. The task is simple. We will organize children and teach them in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way.” – John D Rockefeller

There is a lot of money and power derived off of having a “sucker born everyday.” Our Elite molds societies by educating the people just enough to run the machine, but never enough to ask if this is the best machine for us. Think about it, our controlled school systems teach sex, drugs and multiculturalism in third and fourth grades and not how to even balance a checkbook by high school.  The Elite’s system wants utterly dependent people to control for power and profit.  They do not want fully aware people, who can see through main stream media lies, Wall St Ponzi schemes, or Federal abuses.  They certainly do not want people educating others to our common plight of illusion.

“Our wretched species is so made that those who walk on the well-trodden path always throw stones at those who are showing a new road”– Voltaire

Your thoughts are not your own. I love asking thoroughly indoctrinated people, “do your ideas serve to free you or simply to make you serve?” I then following up with, “who put those ideas there?”  I always get two answers back, the first is “uh….” with eyes rolling into their head.  The second is the programmed ego self defense mechanism of “I did.”  It is sad to see people lie in general, but to see people lie to themselves is absolutely heart breaking.  If you ever wonder why most Americans are broke, depressed and lifeless, look no further than whose thoughts they are thinking.  If they are listening to the Elite’s financial CONmen, they are constantly stripped of their wealth through a myriad of schemes.  If they are listening to the Elite’s MSM, they are depressed because the national problems are too big and the experts say that there is no hope or worse they say hope is coming… someday.  If they are listening to the Elite’s medical community, they are hooked on psychotropic drugs and will never get their fire back by tackling their life’s challenges.

“Competition is a sin.” John D. Rockefeller

The Elite give us the illusion of freedom but control all of the choices. The Elite give us the choice of 500 cable stations, yet the same message comes from all of the channels. They give us aisles and aisles of food, yet 90% of it is just corn and soy byproducts. They give us the choice of hundreds of political candidates, yet nothing changes because both sides are bought and paid for by the Elite. They give you the choice of investments of stocks, bonds, and real estate but when this all goes down, you will see that it is all apart of the same illusion of the dollar. This of course is controlled by the Elite. If you do not think independently for yourself, you cannot help but to be controlled, whether you know it or not.

Every aspect of your life is monitored, regulated, taxed and controlled, not for your betterment, but for betterment of others. To do most high paying jobs requires a certification or a license.  Most “assets” you have or own out right are not your own.  (Try not paying your property taxes on a home you own out right and I will show you the real owner is.)  All of your communications are monitored and recorded.  Now the Federal government wants these records to be kept indefinitely.  Think you own your 401k?  Try getting your money out.  You want to do anything to your home?  You better get permission from the homeowner association or the local zoning board.  All of these examples, plus many, many more have nothing to do with making your life better.  They exist to create power, profit and a parasitic life for another.

“Until they became conscious they will never rebel and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.” — George Orwell (1984)

Now before you crawl into the fetal position and start sucking your thumb after realizing that you possibly are a slave, don’t worry.  There is a way out.  My Sons of Liberty Academy is based off of the simple principal of  “When you are aware, you can prepare.”  I believe that when you see the big picture and understand how you are manipulated, finding the best path for you becomes simple.  You cannot become aware unless you rebel against everything that you are now. It starts with putting your foot down and saying, “no more!”  You must commit to yourself that you will no longer play the fool for someone else.  You will start by doing what is best for you and the ones you love.  You will search for truth wherever it is and let that search be your guided light.  That simple little rebellion of your mind is just the spark for a much greater fire of enlightenment.  You will be reborn a man that is totally aware, completely free and fully alive.

“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.”– Voltaire

I have identified 5 Stages of the Awakening Process that mirror Elizabeth Kubler Ross’s Five Steps of Grief . The reason why they mirror is because it is literally your old self dying. Your body will physically and mentally react as if there was a real death in your life.  We identify ourselves by what we do, what we wear, and what we drive. When you are awake, all of that will matter no more. You will transcend the current consumer order and be fully prepared for the new paradigm. I feel it is incredibly helpful to understand this process to not only identify where you are, but where you should be going.  I cannot stress to you how important and necessary this process is. If you do not start thinking for yourself, you will be without the skills necessary to survive in a post-dollar world.

“No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.”– Voltaire

1. Denial- In this stage you dismiss anything that goes counter to conventional wisdom as crazy talk or conspiracy theory.  This is really a self defense mechanism the brain uses to protect the ego.  No one likes to admit when they are wrong, much less admit when they have been fooled.  So it is infinitely easier to deny a truth, rather than to embrace it.  It is easier to mock, than to debate.  It is easier to hide under the sheets and pretend that there is not a monster in the room.  This is where most of our society is stuck right now.  They believe that whatever the “authorities” tell them is the truth.  They go along with the crowd in fear of being looked upon as strange or crazy.

In my experience, denial comes in two forms.  The first is the most common and least dangerous form of denial.  It is just not wanting to know the truth that might upset their happy little life.  This innocent denial of the “ignorance is bliss” mentality, is held by so many Americans who think that things are going “swell” for them, so why ruin it with the truth.  There was a woman who I was working with that shut down on me when confronted with the truth.  She literally said to me, “I don’t want to know that 9/11 was an inside job because that reality is too scary for me.”  Another person said, “that it would be like finding out his father was gay.”  (“Not that there is anything wrong with that…” quoted from the very funny social engineer Jerry Seinfeld.)  This form of denial is the easiest to overcome because when things go wrong in their perfect little world, they will have no more excuse not to look for the reason of why their world fell apart.  There is no more bliss for them to remain ignorant. This economic depression and political failures of both Bush and Obama have already shook a great many out of this denial.

“As long as people believe in absurdities, they will continue to commit atrocities.”– Voltaire

The second kind of denial is one that is much more pernicious. I view it as guilty denial.  This is the denial of people who actually are benefiting off of the illusion of our paradigm.  This comes from business owners, government employees or others whose livelihood is derived off of the current debt paradigm.  These people actively fight the truth through disinformation or saying, “they can’t keep that a secret” or that is “just a crazy conspiracy.”  They would rather create plausible deniability to distance themselves from the reality of their actions/inactions.  Their aggressive defense of the illusion shows me that they know what they are doing is wrong.  They are too afraid to live outside of this paradigm, so it is better to try to hold it together despite its human costs.

“Anger is just a cowardly extension of sadness.  It’s a lot easier to be angry at someone than it is to tell them you’re hurt.” -Thomas Gates

2. Anger- When you start to see that you were fooled, you react violently for being taken for a fool and want to lash out.  The Freedom Movement has a lot of this in it currently with talk of “just shooting the bastards.”  This action is ineffectual in bringing about positive change for the Freedom Movement.  (Those that have proposed this violence to me, I am sure were working for the government trying to find some sucker to frame.)  Anger is a very natural reaction and is one that you must go through rather than suppress.  Finding out how the world really works is a kin to finding out your significant other has been cheating on you.  You may have remained faithful to what this country was about while atrocities were committed behind your back.  Anger is just covering up for the fact that you are really hurt for being taken advantage of.  This stage is often the shortest, but is also the one where the most energy is expelled.  In my anger stage, I redirected my anger to fuel an intense amount of research into making sure I was never fooled again.  It eventually lead to the creation of the Sons of Liberty Academy.

3. Bargaining- After you calm down, you reach out to anyone who will listen to tell them what is really going on.  This is the most annoying stage of the awakening process. (Remember you are reaching for people who are in stage 1 of Denial.) You ruin Christmas parties telling people about WTC7 or kids basketball games talking about the Federal Reserve.  By reaching out and sharing, you are not really trying to awaken people, you are really looking for help.  By reaching out, you are seeking guidance or structure in your search for truth.  You know that there is something wrong.  You know that you cannot go back to ignorance.  Without clarity, you cannot go forward.  This naturally leads to the next stage of depression.

4. Depression- Now that you have reached out to everyone and nothing seems to happen, depression sinks in.  You start saying “it is too big” or “what could I do about it.”  The worst kind of depression that permeates the Freedom Movement is the arrogant attitude of “I know it all” or “screw everyone, I don’t care.”  This is the most painful stage and the hardest to get out of.  Human happiness comes from progress and yet progress in this journey seems to suck you further into a hole.  Unfortunately there is no way around this, yet it is necessary to go though it.

“I must not fear.  Fear is the mind-killer.  Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.  I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.  And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.  Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.Frank Herbert

5. Acceptance- At the point where you now become comfortable with the oncoming reality and make active, positive steps to prepare for it.  This process of making wise choices for yourself and not others, will yield massive positive personal results.  These positive results will reinforce your actions and bring about more positive change in your life.  People will start to notice the light in your eyes as confidence returns.  They will now ask what happened to you and those that once did not want to hear the truth, will be ready to listen. This is ultimately where we need to get to both personally and as a movement.

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.” -Henry David Thoreau

I really feel that the reason I have been so successful at waking people up is that I do not try to scare and depress them.  (Trust me, I can write doom and gloom with the best of them.)  I do try to motivate, encourage and enlighten people in order to take that first step into their highest self.  This journey is the most important one they will ever take and is your only hope to ever becoming what you were meant to be free and independent.

“I think therefore I am free.” -Chris Duane

Wake Some People Up!

The 3 Coming False Flags

I have been tempted to write about False Flags for sometime, because I feel we are on the verge of seeing another one very soon. False flag operations are covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities. (Wikipedia) False flags do not happen very often, but when they do happen, they change the paradigm we operate in. Now that we supposedly killed bin Laden last month, it seems like the deck is clear for another one.

Historically, false flags are military in nature, but I feel going forward, they will morph into something worse. Every system built on debt needs constant debt to be created, or the system implodes. If the Elite can expand the system through asset bubbles, then all is well. What happens if they can’t get more debt created? They need to either steal other assets to provide capital to the system or they need a reason to create massive debts that the masses will sacrifice for. Wars do both. With war, the Elite can confiscate natural resources of other nations and provide the context to create massive amounts of new debt.

Our system is failing and there is NO fixing it. There is so much inequity built into the system, at every level, the only answer is a complete collapse. This collapse will leave a generational scar, so that humanity never again consider fractional reserve banking and the war machine it enables. Until that collapse, the Elite will do what they have always done, create more debts and wars.

In my opening blog post this year, Doom is Always 6 Months Away, I wrote that the Elite see their power paradigm collapsing on its own cancerous self. A silver default, debt doom, dollar collapse, peak oil or whatever leads to the end of the Anglo American Petro Dollar financial paradigm. I hypothesized the our Anglo-America Elite might need to pull off 3 false flags in order to fail forward. This might include the typical Military false flag, an Economic false flag and an Internet false flag. These dramatic measures will seem necessary to the Elite and the horrific toll on humanity will be justified in their minds. This upheaval will be the time for the Elite to settle all of the threats to their power paradigm.

The first of the three threats to their power is the death of the dollar. The dollar is the basis of all of the Elites power, without it or an equivalent of it, they have no means to create the debt that enslaves nations, states, corporations, and citizens of the world. This debt provides the Elite and unlimited checkbook to fund the most powerful military in the world. It controls the world’s natural resources so that their corporations can harvest them. It also protects the shipping lanes that transports the rest of the world’s trade. This debt also buys the political power for which the Elite rig the game to their favor. Finally, the Elite use the their money to own all of the major media in order to distract the masses from the real problem in this world, the Elite bankers.

It is no secret that the dollar is going to die, it is a mathematical inevitability. Nothing can stop the ultimate collapse of the dollar. Our monetary system is based on debt and in order for it to work, more debt needs to be created every year in excess of the debt AND interest accrued the year before. If it does not happen, there would be a massive wave of defaults that would suck the system dry in a few weeks. When you truly understand this debt based money, you realize that debt cannot ever be repaid because there would not be 1 dollar in existence. In our sick system, money is created when debt is created. When debt is paid off money is destroyed.

The Elite don’t necessarily care if the Dollar lives or dies, they just want to control the world’s reserve currency. They would ultimately like to have an global international currency that would be far away from the pesky national politicians. So if the Dollar is doomed, how can the Elite fail forward? Create a financial crisis so incredible that desperate people will beg the Elite to make the pain stop. They did it in 1907 to set the stage for the Federal Reserve. They did it in 2008 when they held up America for $700 billion. They will do it again and use the line of stability as the main reason why we should accept their new corrupt plan.

I don’t think they can pull off something so large like that without a much larger distraction to silence the masses, which brings me to the second threat. The only thing I think big enough to scare the masses under the “protective” hug of the Elite, is another World War. Nations outside the Anglo American empire have been gaining power the further we slip into debt and this is a huge threat. Countries like China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, South Africa and many more like to a lesser extent like Japan, Germany, and France have been on the losing end of the Anglo American Empire for over a century. These nations have a history of Anglo American losses like the Cold War, Opium Wars, Operation Ajax, CIA attempted coup of Chavez, Apartheid, Hiroshima, Treaty of Versailles, and Waterloo. These are only some of the examples our Elite have used in the past to ensure our supremacy. The Elite feed us some lie about us making the world safe for democracy, while they pull the most evil and disgusting power grabs to eliminate threats to their paradigm.

I believe that the collapse of the dollar will be blamed not on our corrupt and doomed monetary system that the Elite are in sole control of, they will blame it on China. Let me first state that I am NO fan of China. Their Elite have human rights violations against their own citizens that would make you sick to your stomach. Let’s be honest, China would not be a threat to us if our Elite did not build them up. Our Military Industrial Complex needs an enemy to justify their war machine. The War on Terror was a good ride, but after almost a decade, it is getting a little old. Our banking system needed another country to buy into our paper Ponzi scheme. China became the most obvious target, after Japan gorged itself on our debt to death. Our Elites, made deals with their Elites, to move our manufacturing overseas to use their slave labor and pollute their environment. The Chicoms got all of the technology, manufacturing and dollars to build up China as a threat. Our Elite did this to make tremendous profits and keep the dollar paradigm going. In the end, I believe the Elite intend to use the Chinese as the next enemy in a paradigm shifting war.

When China said no more American debt, the Federal Reserve stepped in as a buyer of last resort. This has bought us some time, but it is becoming obvious that even when QE3 happens, this won’t end good. The American economic system is like the heroin guy from the movie Se7en, any flash of inflation or deflation will create a massive heart attack. The Elite must some how solve Triffin’s Dilemma where a world reserve currency reaches its apex and must be allowed to default, but somehow not drag down the rest of the world with it. The Elite have been trying to get regional and ultimately global currencies in place to solve this dilemma. Now no nation is going to give up their power to create money, especially now that we are looking at the Euro imploding. The only option in to do it the old fashion way, through war.

The only thing the United States is good for is exporting debt and bombs. There is way too much at stake for our Elite to just walk silently into the night without a fight. They are trying to keep things going by fighting now four wars in the oil rich MENA region, but the writing is on the wall. The debt ceiling will be raised, more money/debt will be created and the war machine will churn. This will not end because the Elite will say, “we can’t do this anymore.” If anything, history has shown when the chips are on the table and they are up against the ropes, they double down and go off to war. The destruction of the dollar will either be the cause of war or the war will be the destruction of the dollar. If there is a Economic False Flag, like a massive treasury sell off, that will be the cause for war with China. Or if there is a Military False Flag, that will be the cause for the dollar’s destruction and forced introduction of a new money paradigm, possibly a global currency. The Elite will use this upheaval to destroy any competitors. In the smoking aftermath of the war, they will impose an new paradigm based off of the same destructive seeds of the old paradigm.

“Never waste a good crisis.” Hillary Clinton

There is a third threat to the Eilte’s power paradigm, the Internet. There is no doubt that the Internet has gotten away from the Elite and their lies have been exposed. Small sites like mine a hundreds of others show over and over again, the Emperor has no clothes. I can see an Internet False flag to coincide with this Economic and Military false flag. They will blame China for massive Internet shut downs of many sites. I believe that the big corporations will still have functioning internet, but small sites will be shut down. If this does not happen, they may do something more tyrannical, and shut down sites that speak out against this lie of war and debt.

Most tyrannies go after the heads of the revolution like local leaders and/or opinion makers like journalists and bloggers. They may ignore us at first, then call us crazy or unpatriotic, but ultimately they may detain or kill us. My hope is that people see the big picture and spread this truth so that it becomes impossible to put the genie of truth back in the bottle. One of the major reasons I created the Sons of Liberty Academy is to provide enough high level information to as many people so that they may conduct a leaderless resistance to the real enemy of us all, the Banksters.

My other hope is that those that are in charge of squelching dissent during these trying times will be Oath Keepers, who will not follow un-Constitutional orders against their fellow citizens. The most likely outcome is the the government minion’s pay checks will bounce and their pensions stolen before we get to that kind of tyranny. At that point, those minions will most likely be the strongest allies to the truth movement, as they spill the beans and point the fingers. I wrote and article Who Will Be the Most Dangerous Man in The World?, in it I describe a man that sees what he is doing evil and has the power to destroy the system he once created. Daniel Ellsberg exposed the Vietnam scam and ended that war. We cannot fight evil, we only need to expose evil and it will cease to have power. The real challenge is to show people that the good that they think they are doing is really evil and they will no longer do it. We need to convince our fellow citizens that debt and war are evil and that we rid this scourge from humanity once and for all.

The timing and order of all of this is unknown, but just know that it is going to get dramatically worse before this gets any better. Every 80 years or so a paradigm dies and a new one is born out of the ashes of the old. 80 years ago we had the Great Depression and World War II and this was the creation of the current paradigm. 80 years before that we had the Civil War and 80 years before that we had the Revolutionary War. So far the United States has survived and gone on to become a Global Super Power. This time around we could have the possibility of a Revolutionary War, a Civil War, or a World War or even the combination of all three. There is nothing writing saying that America will go on. If fact given our horrible record of debt and war, this system deserves to die an awful death.

What lays ahead? I don’t think the United States will be invaded, but we will retreat from our 777 military bases all over the world. We will no longer be able to consume 25% of the world’s oil and create unlimited amounts of debt. Our lives will become much slower and local. If the Internet does continue to be free, there is a great chance of a new Renaissance for humanity as we move past debt and war. If the Elite somehow win, you will see the rise of American Oligarchs. The Elite will fund and create front men to buy up strategic assets while there is blood on the streets. This happened during the collapse of the Soviet Empire and I believe it will happen here. During the collapse of the Soviet Empire the Ruble was devalued, the economy collapsed and people starved. The Rothschilds came in with hard currencies like the Dollar and the Deutschmark and set up average men with banks and capital to buy state assets for a song. When our crisis comes, the Banksters will be screaming for state assets like land, roads, buildings, mining and drilling rights and other assets. They are doing this in Greece and they will do it here.

While all of this may be too scary or too much for you to believe or even too big for you to deal with, I encourage you to not hide from this coming reality. Things are only scary if you do not understand them. I have created the Sons of Liberty Academy to speed you through the 5 Stages of Awakening. When you are aware, you can prepare. You can stay ahead of the curve to at the very least, stay out of danger, and at the most, be able to spot opportunities along the way. Mental preparation is by far the most important thing you can be doing right now. Nothing will help you mentally prepare as quickly as the Sons of Liberty Academy. After that, you need to physically prepare to have food, shelter, and the means to protect yourself. Finally, I recommend you read the Silver Bullet and the Silver Shield to create generational wealth on the other side of this coming paradigm shift.

Wake Some People Up!

Rise Up! One Voice, One People, One Nation

One Voice, One People, One Nation.

Be ready, our time is coming, the world is spinning faster and faster,  each day another card falls on the worlds house of cards, another domino in the long chain of events moving the world closer and closer to what WE all know is coming. The greatest generation knew it in 1930’s, the warriors of the south in the 1860’s knew it, the revolutionary patriots understood it in 1770’s. Our Time is coming, a day of change, not some slogan for community organizing, but for Revolution! For our people to rise up and take our place among the great generations who have come before us, to stand together united as one people, our destiny, our heritage, our high culture, our technology, all have been building for the last 10,000 years for the new age approaches, there will be NO fence sitting for anyone!

You will stand as men,

or die like cowards!

On your knees bitch. England is ours now.

The People are aware of what has been done to them, many acknowledge and silently prepare, a band of brothers are we, one goal, to take back our nations from the occult of death, the egalitarian worshiper, they have lost the minds of the people, and everything they have done has helped to push our beliefs into reality, time and again we are proven right, time and again, THEY have failed, in every way possible they have failed. Now our nation states face internal strife and collapse, soon our time will come.

One Voice, One People, One Nation.

This is coming to America.

These are OUR cities, OUR nations, OUR people, say it clear to them:

YOU CANNOT HAVE THEM!

WE WILL FIGHT YOU TO OUR

LAST BREATH!

Europe is struggling to breath, the whole of our civilization stands at the gates of the hell, from these cleansing infernos, a warrior people will be born, the weak will fall to the way side and the strong will prevail!

           The Enemy gathering its forces.

We have a right to exist as a FREE and unique people, to decide our own destiny, to BE Truly Free from tyranny of any kind!

Our ancestors fought for that right, they died on the battlefields across this world, bit by bit we have pieced it together, sacrifice to unwavering courage we have stood the natures fury, every obstacle, everything making our people stronger, making us smarter, each step our weakness have been bled from us.

Our enemies have only one weapon left against us, our final and only weakness, our mercy. The Last weakness is our mercy for the enemy, one thought from the immortal bloodline; ask none, give none.

Europe is taking blows to the body, their people unable to defend their communities from the hordes will stand and fight or die like dogs, today London has been sacked and burned, tomorrow Detroit, and San Diego. The last stronghold of the greatest people to walk the Earth, is America. It is here we will make our stand, take this nation, and its government, and the whole of the Earth will follow. This is our destiny, the final test of strength, we fail here there is no second chance, humanity will die.

One Voice, One People, One Nation.

The Essentials of the European New Right

The Essentials of the European New Right

It was my discovery of the European New Right that finally convinced me that one could be both a serious intellectual and a political rightist. My initiation came when I discovered Alain De Benoist’s and Charles Champetier’s manifesto for the French New Right eleven years ago. I had never seen rightist ideas presented in such a way before and I knew I had come upon something powerful. Previously, I had been more or less a left-wing Chomskyite. I had long found the left dissatisfying, particularly its victimological ressentiment and its PC bluenoses. Yet, when I looked at the bulk of the American right and saw the jingoist flag-wavers, Bible-bangers, Israel-firsters, plutocratic apologists, conspiracists, and knee-jerk militarists, I would wonder why would anyone could possibly want to be associated with that, for God’s sake? Murray Rothbard’s championing of the legacy of the “Old Right” notwithstanding, I considered the right to be an intellectual wasteland. Fortunately, the European New Right rescued me from such a narrow perception. It was from the European New Right that I learned one could be a progressive without being an egalitarian, a conservative without succumbing to vulgar economism, and a traditionalist without being a yahoo.

A major problem with bringing ENR ideas to North American audiences has been the fact that much of the scholarship produced by ENR writers has yet to be translated into English. For instance, De Benoist is the leading intellectual of the ENR and one of its founding fathers, yet only only two of De Benoist’s dozens of books, On Being a Pagan and The Problem of Democracy, have undergone an English translation and the latter appeared in English only this year thanks to Arktos Publishing. Two original English works surveying ENR thought have also appeared. One of these is by Tomislav Sunic and the other is by Michael O’Meara. If you are a college student and you want to shock and offend your politically correct professors and peers, then the distribution of copies of these works on campuses would certainly be an easy way to do so.

Because of the efforts of Arktos, more and more works of the ENR are gradually being made available in English as well as older works originally written by long-forgotten conservative revolutionary figures of the interwar era. Arktos also makes available works by leftist thinkers offering genuine insight and other writers whose ideas fall way outside the paradigm of what passes for “the right” within the context of U.S. style “conservatism.” Suffice to say we will not be seeing any of the plutocrat-funded and neocon-managed publishing houses of America’s “conservative movement” issuing the works of Lothrop Stoddard, Antonio Gramsci, Georges Sorel, Carl Schmitt, Michael Cremo, Andrew Fraser, or Pentti Linkola. Arktos has also issued an English version of Ernst von Salomon’s It Cannot Be Stormed. Salomon was a conservative revolutionary author whose success continued well into the post-WW2 period and earned the denunciation of TIME magazine in the process. I’m still waiting for English translations of Ernst Junger’s Der Arbeiter and of the works of Ernst Niekisch (hint, hint).

Several contemporary works by leading ENR writers, such as De Benoist, Sunic, and Guillame Faye have been given extensive review on Brett Stevens’ website. (See here, here, and here.) Sunic’s Against Democracy and Equality is particularly helpful not only as an introduction to ENR ideas on a more abstract level, but as a source of critical insights that shed extensive light on the realities behind some of the more important political and cultural phenomena of our time. As Stevens observes in his review of Sunic:

Liberalism dehumanizes its adversaries. According to Carl Schmitt as channeled through Sunic, the left abhors war — so it phrases every political action as a police action. The bad guys become inhuman because they are immoral, not nice, not egalitarian, etc. and thus can be exterminated not in a war but in the right-thinking people detaining or removing the bad ones.

De Benoist’s The Problem of Democracy subjects the most sacred of all modern pieties, the ideal of liberal mass democracy, to rigorous and unrelenting criticism. The only other contemporary work that I am aware of that offers such a thoroughgoing assault on modern democracy is Hans Hermann Hoppe’s Democracy: The God That Failed. I gave Hoppe’s work an extensive review when it first came out ten years ago. The twentieth century’s two leading critics of modern liberal democracy, with its tendencies toward mob rule, were arguably Carl Schmitt and Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn. Schmitt attacked liberal democracy from the perspective of a traditional conservative in the mode of Hobbes or Burke, while Kuehnelt-Leddihn offered a critique rooted in a synthesis of Catholic traditionalism and a monarchist variation of classical liberalism reminiscent of Lord Acton.

Hoppe’s work is clearly influenced by and somewhat derivative of Kuehnelt-Leddihn, and employs arguments one might expect a conservative Catholic and liberal monarchist to make. De Benoist’s observations on democracy more closely resemble and are influenced by those of Schmitt. While Hoppe and Kuehnelt-Leddihn defended classical eighteenth and nineteenth century liberalism against modern egalitarian democracy and its social democratic manifestation, De Benoist like Schmitt before him sees liberalism as the root of the problem. De Benoist offers not classical liberalism but classical democracy as conceived of by the Greeks as the answer to the “problem of democray” in its modern form. Whereas Hoppe postulates the concept of a society ordered completely on the basis of private property as the alternative to modern democratic institutions, De Benoist offers suggestions that at times resemble the notions of “participatory democracy” or “direct democracy” advanced by certain strands of the Left. These contrasts should make for interesting dialogue and debate on the alternative right.

Guillame Faye’s Why We Fight differs from much of the literature of the ENR in that while Faye incorporates the essence of the broader New Right philosophy into his analysis, he also demonstrates a greater concern for on-the-ground practical politics, strategic formulations, and particular policy prescriptions in a way that is atypical of ENR thinkers with their general focus on arcane theoretical abstractions, historical interpretations, or “metapolitics.” Faye’s geopolitical outlook in some ways resembles a melding of the “Eurasianist” idea advanced by Alexander Dugin and the anti-Islamism of Western European euronationalism. This puts Faye at odds with other strands of the ENR which leans towards at least a tactical solidarity with the Third World and regards Islam as a potential traditionalist ally against globalization and Americanization.

I am inclined to regard Faye’s view as appropriate for Europeans and the latter view as more relevant to North Americans. Islam is geographically far removed from North America, and poses no immediate demographic threat. Islamic terrorism directed towards the United States and its allies is for the most part the inevitable “blowback” generated by U.S. foreign policy or, more specifically, the exercise of Zionist influence (whether Jewish or Christian) over American foreign policy in the Middle East. An alliance with Russia against both Americanization and Islamication may serve the interests of Europeans, but America would be best served by a simple renunciation of globalism and a return to old-fashioned isolationism. Indeed, domestic U.S. Muslims may well be valuable allies against domestic Zionism.

The European New Right clearly has much to offer to ordinary conservatives looking for ideas of infinitely greater substance than what is typically found on talk radio, FOX News, or the subcultures of American right-wing populsim. But the philosophy of the ENR might well prove to be the bridge that also helps many disaffected leftists to eventually find their way to the alternative right. The thinkers of the ENR have developed a critique of globalization, imperialism, and Americanization every bit as thorough and radical as that offered by neo-Marxists like Immanuel Wallerstein, indeed even more so. Likewise, the ENR possesses a critique of consumerism, recognition of ecological issues, anticlericalism and critique Christianity that avoids the shrill bigotry of the “new atheists” that at times resembles but is more substantive than that offered by the Left. The ENR emphasis on the sovereignty and self-preservation of all peoples might even appeal to non-white nationalist, separatist, or autonomist movements.

Writers of the ENR have also advanced an intelligent and sincere but measured social and cultural conservatism that lacks the “homosexual-atheist-abortionist-under-every-bed” hysteria of the American right-wing. ENR thought upholds masculine and feminine identities without sinking into crass misogyny, and De Benoist has even controversially called for solidarity with Third World nationalism against US imperialism in a way that resembles a rightist version of Chomsky, and advocated a federated European “empire” of autonomous ethnic, cultural, and national identities that is reminiscient of the Holy Roman Empire (which, as Voltaire said, was neither holy, nor Roman, nor an empire). Meanwhile, the ENR-sympathetic Telos journal has postulated a critique of the modern liberal-managerial “new class” that greatly resembles Bakunin’s early critique of Marxism.

If we are going to build a rightist opposition in North America that is worthy of the legacy of Nietzsche, Pareto, Schmitt, Mencken, Ortega, and Junger, and is not merely a movement of useful idiots for the neoconservatives, military-industrial complex, and right-wing of the U.S. ruling class as so-called “movement conservatism” often is, then it would appear that the ideas of the European New Right are thus far the best thing going.

WashingtonFor a generation, he has been considered a model of conservatism in Washington – at moments, perhaps, the model. Over the course of his 34-year career, US Sen. Orrin Hatch (R) of Utah has clashed with Big Labor. He has championed right-wing judicial nominees. He has consistently opposed federal gun control measures and backed a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. He has sponsored or cosponsored a balanced budget amendment – which would require Congress to spend no more than it collects in revenues – no fewer than 17 times. In 2010, the American Conservative Uniongave him a perfect 100 ranking.Yet today Mr. Hatch faces formidable opposition – for not being conservative enough. Activists on the right are attacking him for his vote for the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the financial-market bailout initiative, and his willingness to work with Democrats like the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. They complain that he has voted to raise the debt ceiling 16 times. It’s looking increasingly as if Hatch will face a Republican primary challenger next year – and could very well lose.

In some respects, this is simply a case of a senator who’s spent more than three decades in Washington butting up against a public mood that is intensely antiestablishment and – particularly on the right – opposed to compromise. Like most longtime public servants, Hatch has cast a number of difficult votes over the years, and he has at times reached across the aisle in order to get things done.

But Hatch’s troubles also say something about the way in which the nation’s political needle has been moving. Over the past four decades – and more sharply over just the past few years – the geopolitical center of America has shifted rightward. It hasn’t happened on all fronts – certainly, there are some areas where the country has clearly moved to the left, such as views on gay rights. But on a host of other issues, from guns to the role of government, the center of debate has edged closer to the conservative position, while activists on the right have moved even further out on the political spectrum.

The move has been most pronounced on fiscal matters. In Washington today, when it comes to the size of government, the debate isn’t over whether to cut spending, but by how much. It’s not over how much to raise taxes to help alleviate a fiscal shortfall, but whether any kind of tax increase – even on the wealthiest few – is valid.

“I don’t remember, ever, in my 45 years in this business, the debate in Washington being [almost solely], ‘What are we going to cut?’ ” says Sal Russo, a top strategist for the Tea Party Express and a longtime Republican consultant who worked as an aide to Gov. Ronald Reagan and advised Hatch’s 2000 presidential bid. “Washington is different than anything I’ve seen in 45 years.”

When it comes to foreign affairs, a country that went into a crouch for two decades after Vietnam is now involved – however reluctantly under the current president – in three wars. Many Americans have also hardened their stance on illegal immigration, accountability in schools has become a prevailing ethic, and nuclear power and offshore oil drilling have come back, to a limited degree.

Compared with today’s Republican presidential candidates, Barry Goldwater, the founder of the modern conservative movement – whose views were considered so extreme in 1964 that he was defeated in a landslide – would seem almost temperate. His blend of strict constitutionalism, muscular national security, and small-government economic policy – low taxation and light regulation – has become standard boilerplate on the stump today. And his more moderate social stances – he believed the government shouldn’t interfere with a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion, for instance – would set him to the left of many. This is one reason he told Bob Dole in 1996: “We’re the new liberals of the Republican Party. Can you imagine that?”

In that sense, it may not be Hatch who has changed but the voters he’s trying to cater to – and the definition of what it means these days to be liberal or conservative.

“Everybody talks about the fact that Nixon and Ford were the last liberal presidents – and to a great degree, it’s true,” says Larry Sabato, a political scientist at the University of Virginia. Or as liberal comedian Bill Maher put it in an interview with CNN, “Really, what we have is a debate between the center-right – the Democratic Party – and the far, far, far right – the Republican Party.”

Beneath all this lie fundamental questions: How much has the country really tilted to the right? What’s behind the shift? Is this the last gasp of a realignment that has been going since the 1970s, or are we seeing the emergence of a new brand of conservatism that may persist for years?

* * *

Actually, when asked to describe their ideological leanings, the basic pattern of responses from voters hasn’t changed dramatically in 40 years. Self-identified conservatives have always outnumbered self-identified liberals, and for the most part, both groups have tended to trail behind self-identified moderates.

Still, over time – and particularly in recent years – there has been a small but significant shift in favor of conservatism. When CBS News asked voters to categorize themselves in February 1976, 28 percent called themselves conservative, 23 percent called themselves liberal, and 39 percent called themselves moderate. By June 2010, those numbers had shifted to 35 percent conservative, 18 percent liberal, and 42 percent moderate.

In some recent polls, conservatives have actually begun to outpace moderates. According to Gallup, 40 percent of Americans identified themselves as conservative in 2010, compared with 35 percent as moderate and 21 percent as liberal.

Perhaps most striking, last February Gallup released state-by-state results that showed self-identified conservatives outnumbering self-identified liberals in every state in the nation – including Vermont, Massachusetts, and New York.

Of course, these are subjective labels – they almost certainly mean different things to different voters in different places and at different times. But if anything, as more and more voters are calling themselves conservative, the definition of what that means – and the implications it holds for policy – also seems to be shifting right.

In 1976, when Hatch was first elected to the Senate, the government had been steadily expanding for four decades, beginning with Franklin Roosevelt‘s New Deal, and continuing with the enactment of Lyndon Johnson‘s Great Society – launching Medicare and Medicaid as well as other social programs. Some of them were further expanded under Presidents Nixon and Ford. By the mid-1970s, concern was growing that things were getting out of hand: In a Gallup poll that year, when asked to rank “government spending” as a concern on a scale of 1 (least important) to 5 (most important), 57 percent gave it a 5.

The nation was also struggling with the end of the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal, as well as battling double-digit inflation, high interest rates, and an unemployment rate of 7.7 percent.

“The people and the voters … are skeptical and sour,” wrote Michael Barone in the 1976 edition of the “Almanac of American Politics.” “They doubt government can accomplish much, and they don’t believe in politicians.”

The national malaise gave momentum to a rising breed of conservative politicians like Hatch – who, at the time, was a young Salt Lake City attorney with no political experience. Hatch argued that reducing the size of government, rolling back regulations, and lowering taxes, along with a renewed focus on morality and building up the military, would reenergize the nation.

That same year, Mr. Reagan challenged President Gerald Ford in what wound up being a surprisingly close Republican primary contest. (Reagan also played a critical role in Hatch’s senatorial campaign, endorsing him as a fellow conservative.) Four years later, Reagan would oust Jimmy Carter from the Oval Office, launching a conservative wave that – despite some electoral ups and downs – has shaped the national debate to a considerable extent ever since.

Today, some of the same forces that launched the modern conservative movement are coming into play once again – from concerns about federal spending, to distrust of government, to fears about America’s decline in the world. But there are some notable differences, too, that have shifted the nation’s political center on certain issues even further to the right.

Instead of coming on the heels of a great liberal expansion of government, today’s shift comes after three decades of the unraveling of elements of the social safety net. The move right is starting from a more conservative standpoint. Taxes were dramatically lowered by Reagan, and have remained relatively low ever since (today’s top marginal tax rate is 35 percent; in 1976 it was 70 percent). A Democratic president – Bill Clinton – ended “welfare as we know it,” and enacted business-friendly trade policies that quickened the flow of manufacturing jobs overseas. Organized labor has dramatically declined in power.

“The New Deal programs have been weakened and destroyed over decades, and there are just many fewer elements in the safety net,” says Alan Brinkley, a historian at Columbia University and author of “Liberalism and its Discontents.”

Conservatives, of course, would argue that any tilt to the right is a validation of their ideas. Yet the situation is more complex than that. Many factors have contributed to the nation’s rightward drift.

For one thing, frustration over what is perceived as wasteful government spending – under both Democratic and Republican administrations – has grown. The Bush administration’s massive spending on everything from a new prescription drug bill to the war in Iraq pushed the national debt to new heights, a trend that has continued during President Obama‘s tenure. Voters saw the government spend huge sums on such things as financial bailouts and health care – little of which seemed to make a noticeable difference in people’s lives.

For many voters, it’s a sense of, “we’ve spent all this money, and there’s still 9.2 percent unemployment,” says Democratic pollster Anna Greenberg. “There’s this larger question: Can government actually do anything?”

Voters still strongly support Social Security and Medicare, and do not want to see those programs dismantled. When Fox News asked voters last May to choose between making cuts in defense or Social Security and Medicare to balance the budget, respondents chose defense, by 54 percent to 22 percent. But between the rising costs of entitlements and an aging population, the nation’s finances have grown increasingly dire – and voters place blame on both parties.

Indeed, one of the main forces behind the recent rise in conservative views – particularly on the issue of the size and role of government – is a widespread sense that the political system is fundamentally broken: Politicians on both sides of the aisle are seen as big spenders who are tools of special interests.

As a result, while the nation may be moving right in its attitudes about what government can and should do, it has also been moving away from traditional party loyalties. Many people are identifying themselves as conservatives first and Republicans (and to a lesser extent Democrats) second.

“One of the reasons you’re seeing a more conservative attitude among conservatives is a belief that Washington and both parties have ignored their concerns,” says Republican pollster Glen Bolger. “The spending continues to go up, the debt continues to go up. I think they’re saying, ‘Look, we’re kind of getting tired of people saying, “Yeah, we hear you,” and then doing nothing.’ ”

This sourness about government has led conservative activists to hold even Republican officials to more stringent tests – requiring them, for instance, to sign “no new tax” pledges. And increasingly, they are willing to challenge those politicians who fall short, pushing them further to the right.

In Hatch’s case, he has been making notable efforts to shore up his conservative credentials. In recent months, he has renewed his push for a balanced budget amendment and introduced a measure that would prevent minors from traveling across state lines to get an abortion without parental consent. During the debate over the debt ceiling, he made a speech on the floor of the Senate arguing that the rich are shouldering an outsized portion of the tax burden: “The poor need jobs, and they also need to share some of the responsibility.”

He has reversed his stance on a bill that would allow young illegal immigrants who grew up in the United States to pursue citizenship – a measure he had previously cosponsored with Mr. Kennedy – and he has said publicly that his vote for the financial bailout was a mistake.

“It might be true that Hatch did moderate a little bit – partly because he was in a position of responsibility and leadership that required that he be willing to talk to the other side. But he’s certainly dialed that back in recent months,” says Quin Monson, a political scientist at Brigham Young University. “In some ways, it’s disappointing and sad that reaching across the aisle has become anathema to Republicans. It makes you wonder where it ends.”

Mr. Russo, whose group, the Tea Party Express, has said it will not challenge Hatch, calls him a “stalwart conservative.” “I think there’s a ‘slash and burn’ mentality,” he says about efforts on the right to unseat Hatch. “Some people have unreasonable views about how you get things done.”

Yet it isn’t just Republicans who are becoming more conservative about Washington’s role. In its most recent biannual survey of political values and core attitudes, the Pew Research Center found that the most notable shift of late is that independent voters have taken “a turn to the right” on broader economic issues, including views of the social safety net and the government’s effectiveness and scope. Pew found that the number of people who believe the government “should help more needy people even if it means going deeper into debt” has fallen to 48 percent overall, while among independents, it’s down to 43 percent – a drop of 14 points since 2007.

“There’s more concern about the debt, and distrust of government – and an unwillingness to use government to do things,” says Andy Kohut, Pew’s director. “We don’t like the way we’re bailing out banks, but we also don’t like the way we’re bailing out people who’ve taken out mortgages and can’t afford them.”

* * *

Tough economic conditions may be another reason many people’s attitudes are hardening about government. Studies, including one in 2010 by Peter Enns of Cornell University and Nathan Kelly of the University of Tennessee, found that when income inequality widens, both rich and poor Americans tend to grow more fiscally conservative.

During the liberal heyday of the 1930s and ’40s, income inequality actually narrowed, and then remained relatively stable throughout the ’50s and ’60s. It wasn’t until the ’70s that it began widening, launching what liberal economist Paul Krugman has famously called “the Great Divergence.” In 1976, the richest 1 percent of Americans took home 9 percent of the nation’s total income; today, they are taking home 24 percent.

Mr. Enns and Mr. Kelly don’t know exactly why lower-income voters tend to grow more fiscally conservative in response to inequality, but they speculate that one factor may be the media. The widening gap since the 1970s has been largely due to massive gains among the wealthy – and media narratives during this time probably emphasized stories of bootstrap “individualism.”

In contrast, the decrease in inequality during the decades prior to the ’70s was driven by income gains among the poor and may have generated news stories emphasizing the government’s role in education and job creation. “This could explain why declining inequality up to the 1970s pushed public opinion in a liberal direction,” they write – and why rising inequality in recent decades has shifted voters further to the right.

On other issues, jarring events have helped move the country to the right. The nation’s foreign policy has been more hawkish in the wake of 9/11, and even Mr. Obama, who came into office vowing to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, has found it difficult to do so on an aggressive timetable. The Guantánamo Bay detention facility remains open, and homeland security is still a widespread concern.

“Foreign policy doesn’t change that much from one administration to another,” notes Professor Brinkley. “It’s hard to persuade either the electorate or the government that we’re not going to be the protectors of the world anymore.”

Of course, there are counterpressures pushing America in a more liberal direction, too. Generational changes are clearly pushing public opinion to the left when it comes to certain moral and cultural issues, most notably gay rights.

When Gallup asked voters in 1976 whether homosexuals should have equal rights in terms of job opportunities, 56 percent said they should, while 33 percent said they should not. But when asked if homosexuals should be allowed to teach in elementary schools, 65 percent said they should not, while only 27 percent said they should. Only 14 percent of voters believed homosexuals should be allowed to adopt children, while 77 percent said they should not.

Today, by contrast, a majority of Americans support same-sex marriage – 53 percent, according to the latest Gallup poll, compared with 45 percent opposed. And 67 percent told Gallup they’d support a law allowing gays to serve openly in the US military.

Yet the direction of the country on other social-cultural issues remains less discernible. Many states have imposed more restrictions on abortion, for instance, suggesting a tilt to the right. But Roe v. Wade remains intact, and many polls show a majority of Americans support a woman’s right to terminate a pregnancy if it’s in the first few months.

Likewise, on gun control, polls suggest a rightward shift in views over the past decade – the Harris Poll found the proportion of Americans who favor stricter gun laws fell from 69 percent in 1998 to 45 percent in 2010. But that 45 percent still represents a plurality, compared with just 26 percent of Americans who want less strict gun laws.

Global warming, which wasn’t even an issue in the 1970s, has become a broad concern today, although Americans seem to have become more skeptical of late: Harris found that the percentage of Americans who say they believe that an increase in carbon dioxide and other gases will lead to global warming fell from 71 percent in 2007 to 51 percent in 2009. And views on the death penalty have also moved leftward, no doubt in response to questions about wrongful convictions sparked by the rise of DNA evidence. Although most Americans still support the death penalty, Gallup found that support dropped from a high of 80 percent in 1994 to 64 percent in 2010.

To many observers, one factor that will shape the nation’s views on many of these issues in the future will be demographic changes, including the rise of the Hispanic population. By the year 2050, nearly 1 in 5 Americans will be foreign-born – a percentage that outpaces the previous peak reached at the beginning of the last century, when waves of European immigrants hit America’s shores. Analysts say this may push the country back to the left in some, though not all, areas.

“The country is gradually evolving into a new reality based on population, demographics, and diversity,” says Professor Sabato. “We’re going to be a majority minority country, which has tremendous implications for politics.”

Still, it seems very unlikely that America will return to a New Deal-type liberalism. If anything, what may be emerging may look more and more like a modified form of libertarianism – in which voters don’t want government involved in business or moral issues.

There’s some evidence that is already happening. In June, a poll by CNN/Opinion Research Corporation found that 63 percent of Americans said the government was trying to do too much – up from 52 percent in 2008. At the same time, the survey showed that 50 percent thought the government should not favor any particular set of values – up from 41 percent in 2008.

For now, most conservative voters still tend to be conservative on social issues as well as on fiscal matters. But in this election cycle at least, those cultural divisions seem more muted, since economic issues are essentially crowding out everything else.

“If you look at tea party members, they’re clearly socially conservative, but they’re just not wearing that on their sleeve this election,” says Karlyn Bowman, a public opinion expert at the American Enterprise Institute. “The emphasis is clearly on fiscal conservatism.”

To some extent, it’s as if the conservative movement has come full circle, back to the original ideology of Goldwater.

“Goldwater talked about government being too big, spending too much, regulating too much – and he was also like, ‘who cares whether people are gay or straight?’ ” says former GOP Congressman Mickey Edwards, who entered the House of Representatives in 1976, the same year Hatch joined the Senate. “In the ’70s and early ’80s, there was great concern among Republicans about spending, but it was overshadowed by a lot of other things – war questions, social questions. And now it looks like finally the size of the deficit has people suddenly saying, ‘OK, that’s it.’ It used to be the issue of economic conservatives, but now it has widespread resonance.”
