The Fall of the American Dream

President Dwight D. Eisenhower

How the Military-Industrial Complex Has Trashed America

At the conclusion of his term in office, President Dwight D. Eisenhower was very concerned that the alliance of the military and major corporations had placed America in a very dangerous position that could lead to future policy based upon what is best for the military-industrial complex, not for the American people or its economy.  He tried to warn us, but we didn't listen.  Now, the American economy has been intentionally bankrupted with trillions stolen by Corporate America, much of it through its alliance with our military and their "no-bid" misadventures around the world.

Now, with the economy near a great depression, President Bush has our military ready to take to the streets of America to "maintain order".  Never in our history have our freedoms been so endangered or have we ever been this close to a true fascist regime.  We came close in the early 1930's when Prescott Bush and JP Morgan were almost successful in planning the assassination of FDR and the takeover of a fascist regime.  Only the valiant and heroic efforts of General Smedley Butler prevented that from happening.  Now, some 80+ years later it appears that George W Bush has brought his grandfather's dreams to near reality.
