Now is the time to celebrate. Over the past half century, our initiatives have crushed labor unions and opposition movements at home and abroad.
While we joked about such nonexistent threats as communism in America, our talk-radio monopoly created a uniformity in public opinion that normally only could be achieved by totalitarian regimes.
While our corporations control an ever-increasing percentage of the nation’s wealth, and thus government policy, we’ve led the public to believe such paltry reforms as the Affordable Care Act and same-sex marriage are real threats to our society.
While silly liberal kids attend college for such useless skills as critical thinking, ultimately forcing them to work unstable, low-wage jobs, our kids went to college for 9-to-5s and already own homes and have children in their mid-20s, tipping the future’s scales even more in our favor.
While more and more concerns are raised about possible catastrophic and irreversible effects from mining on the water supply in Northwestern Wisconsin and Northeastern Minnesota, our buddies in government along with PolyMet Mining and Gogebic Taconite’s vast sums of money certainly will shove these projects through anyway.
While governments around the world demand seemingly endless austerity, our privately owned businesses are ready and waiting to buy up publicly owned industries and undercut workers’ wages and public services across the globe.
While virtually all of today’s problems are caused by the disparity between private property owners and everybody else, sometimes referred to as capitalism, we’ve led half the country to believe this system is actually the solution to those exact same problems.
For every fight the left wins, we win 10. Nobody’s left to stand in our way. We have the money, the power and, soon, the world. So I say lets pop those champagne bottles and celebrate!
