It may be unusual to many of you that someone who doesn't pos often if postng this, but having been in Japan for so long and watching America I had grown apathetic, like many Americans...like many people in general.
Things lately though, aren't adding up and take me back to the days when I was younger and had warning of where my country was heading, toward a fascist dictatoship, controlled by the media and large corporations. And only recently, have I had the time to discover it is a dark reality.
Fellow Amercans; I'm urging you as a veteran and a patriot, that we get this message out, research and join together to put a stop to it. Puppet red and Puppet blue this year for the elections both have ties with eachother, the trilateral commission and the bilderberg group. While seemingly harmless, and supposedly irrelevent, these organizations have been cited and members qouted for their want of severe population reduction, unification through conflict, and order through tyranny.
Before, and very much after September 11th, our civil liberties have been under attack, one by one. The Constitution is hanging by a thread, and we'r on the verge of Martial Law. Patriot Act, Model State Emergenc Health Powers Act, suspension of Hebeas corpus, disregard for posse comitatus and insurrection. Fema Camps are all over te country, stated to be for a nation emergency, but its odd these camps are merely huge parking lots with barbed wire fences faces inward(to keep people in, no out), and electronic turn styles.
I am an Iraq veteran, and I can tell you the same tech and measures used there are slowly being incorporated for Americans. Perhaps I can only see this becauseI am here, and have watched the dramatic crumble of my once fair republic, rather than adapting to it and accepting it like most of my sadly mistaken brothers and sisters.
Please, I'm urging you to think wisely this election. Think of you liberties, of your countrymen, and your god given rights guaranteed in the constitution and how they're under attack now, and will continue if one of these men is elected. We're rapidly heading for bankruptcy, americans are losing jobs and homes fast, while the govt continues to wage illegal wars, destroy nations and wreck havok on our economy so the richest elite can gain money and power.
Please, think carefully - Were the Jews just hustled into trains for concetration out of the blue, or was it a gradual change? A change that an entire nation asked for...
I would like to also urge other veterans, if any here, to come forward with their evidence and witness accounts of what is happening and has happened. We're quickly mobilization for a humongous catastrophe, WWIII. There is no reason to let this happen. This will not end, unless we end this ourselves.
you can also watch many of these videso by doing a search on google videos, or at their websites. Give it a luck, and remember it is not just your right; it is your duty to question.
Thank you all, and good luck.

I'm a veteran. 20 years last February.
OK, here's the deal. While there are a few aspects of our current situation that have depressed the bubble, we are riding at an all-time high in knowledge and expectation of our civil liberties. You may already be a student of history, and if you are, you know that prior to the mega-economy projectile vomiting that law schools have been doing in the decades following WWII, our rights were routinely subject to the whim of just a few. Now, however, there are a multitude of agencies, both government and non, that vie for our quiescence. Whether it's the feds, pay your taxes and be a good drone; corporations, consume and come back for more; or the media, watch and fear for all is woe; each wants something, mainly to thrive. They are very like hive beings, working to survive and grow. They have different aims, though. Once you get enough information out there, the illuminati, uber-lord tends to fragment. It's too tough to keep secrets these days.
Now, what is scary, is the nearly century-old drive to make our society into one dependant upon the government. We have been slowly taught by our government schools and elected officials (who are trying to help, but also trying to keep their jobs) that the government can solve your problems; that is what it's for, why you pay taxes.
There aren't many problems that the government (hereafter referred to as "Sam") has solved that haven't induced two or more connected problems. But people see big pockets, want their representative to get them some of that coin, and don't care that they're robbing themselves. You aren't happy. Sam knows and knows that with his enormous, novelty-sized checkbook, he can entice you to believe that he can scratch one of those dudes and you will feel like he cares and is trying to help you. The problem is, it's your money that he's diluted by shaking through a fine screen of pet projects and questionable efficiency, giving you about 12 pennies to the dollar.
And once we reach that tipping point (which happened in the last decade), there's little chance of stopping it. People are convinced that Sam is there to protect them from the evil corporations, that the people who become politicians and bureaucrats are altruistic saints, whilst the red-eyed children eaters are ripping you off for the bottom-line.
OK, here are some truisms to wrap this up:
The U.S. is not a democracy, that goodness. A democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting to see what's for lunch.
There is no right to vote in federal elections. Check the Constitution.
The government does not generate wealth. Business generates wealth.
People are very, very similar, taken en mass. Whether they have a government job (which is more secure than almost any other job out there), or they work in the civil sector (where people expect results), they tend to act just like people everywhere act. Just because he's your elected representative doesn't mean he has your best interests at heart (he's just not that into you).
I've seen a lot of things, been around quite a few higher-ups, and let me tell you... they are as screwed up as anyone. They are just trying to get along, and have enough troubles of their own to organize a world-dominating cabal bent on the enslavement of man. A failing prostate, erectile dysfunction, and hemorrhoids can take it out of an evil genius.
We've enslaved ourselves. There's little need to invent some puppet master.
The only thing I hate more then extreme right wingers are extreme left wingers.
Yes, we have enslaved ourselves.
We can still bring it back to what it was. The simple notion that we have to put up with constant measures to allow the government to control us is outrageous. Or something that at least resembles the republic that was...
I don't understand how people just lay down and let this happen.
What is taking place now, had taken place in the early 20th century by a country run by a mad man, rights suspended because of terrorists attacks, and the state of their union was blamed on a particular religious group.
The notion that 19 Saudies, 5 of which are still alive, could fly jet liners into the tallest buildings of the most powerful country and catch us off-guard is rediculous.
Iraq is a genocide of partitioned sectors. The move was for "democracy", now that it is in place and they want US gone, our (not-so)benevloent benefactors would like for it to become a colony and launching pad for the future endeavors of global fascism.
Give up your freedoms, and everything will be A-Ok.
And yet, it happened. History is rife with examples of man's hubris.
The 19 hijackers from 9/11/01 that were on the planes, however, are dead. Sometimes things are how they seem.
There's been a full moon for the last straight six weeks, hasn't there?

I enjoy conspiracies myself and am a bit curious as to what you expect to come about from this?
The system is as it always has been and always will be . . . not because we can't do anything about it but we as citizens are content and won't do anything about it . . . it's like when gas hit $4.00 a gallon . . . people speculating a year or so back were all like "the american people won't take it . . . and what are we doing . . . nothing! We love our distractions more than we do our discomfort and frankly change is one of the most discomforting things in the world no matter what the outcome. We as Americans care more about American Idol and Angelina Jolies babies more than we do what your talking about.
Also what do you expect posting this on a site dedicated to concept art . . . artists who are a tool a of the same corperate entity that you have an issue with. I know that we as artists are responsible for getting ideas and philosophies to the masses just as much as any other creative type but again . . . Concept Artists!!! whose ideas are meant to help distract the mainstream media with Giant Robots, big breasted cartoons and bullets that curve around things to hit a target
Again, I'm just curious is all

Amen. God i can't remember the song, but there was one line in it I loved. Was something to the extent of..
"Looking on various street corner, I'm sure you've seen it yourself.
Standing on the corner, is an alleged brother dressed in blue or green, red and black and, spouting the news, that the revolution is coming
And you better get ready, sort of like The end of the world is coming, unfortunately the world is just gonna get dragged on and on"
edit: ok i was a bit off, found the real lyrics. Same message though.

* Help a CA artist! Visit the Constructive Critique section! *
I got a cousin on the CFR and the Trilateral Commission. Boo!
I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

The belief that almost a full hour after the entire country knew that America was under attack, a "747" manages to navigate into the the MOST HEAVILY GUARDED BUILDING IN THE FUCKING WORLD!? A plane that became so hot it "Vaporized" yet the bodies in that plane were identified by DNA? What kind of fire vaporizes steel yet leaves human bodies intact. What kind of plane penetrates 3 rings of reinforced concrete?
Wow...Perhaps if you thought this way in regards to the people who are actually profitting from the war in Iraq, we may not have ever gone in and killed a bunch of women and children. Once you look at this adminsitrations history of Fear mongering you'll see the pattern of American ignorance. These people, (wolfawitz, cheney, rumsfield) have been using this "scare the people" tactic over and over again.Don't kid yourself, your just another propagandist using fear to get people to believe in your ideas.
Sure if you take the word of liars. You haven't been fully informed about 9-11deliberately. I expect comments like this. Buildings do not fall straight down due to external damage. A 3rd building collapsed on 9-11 on 5:20 PM that same day. Most people don't even know about this building. This building wasn't hit by a jet yet fell the same way as the north and south tower.The 19 hijackers from 9/11/01 that were on the planes, however, are dead. Sometimes things are how they seem.
Good for you GhostValkyrie, I am glad that more and more people give a shit and actually investigate for themselves. This is the best collaberation of rare 9-11 clips that show clear evidence of explosives in the buildings.Give up your freedoms, and everything will be A-Ok.
I am sure that Hitler came into power that some people had this same view.This isn't as important as you think it is.
Well back then, the Twin Towers surely were NOT the most heavily guarded building in the world. If you remember, everyone was picking flowers back then, the world wasn't exactly peaceful but this whole paranoia that took control of people since then wasn't there yet.
Also, the World Trade Center WAS constructed to fall down straight and in itself. Because it was a fucking high building and it is much safer for the surroundings.
This atmosphere of mistrust and hatred is exactly the reason why the world is so fucked up. Everyone sees everyone als as a potential enemy. Where is this gonna get us?
