The Virus of Centralization

In my previous post on this website I addressed the Lincoln’s 1863 revelation to Governor Pierpont that the war must be protracted in order for the politically connected to rape the South of its cotton. The recent events in Nevada, during which the US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) squared off with rancher Cliven Bundy, are symptoms of a sick body politic. Consider the following.

There is substantial evidence that US Senator Harry Reid and his lobbyist son cut a deal with China to deliver the Bundy property to a Chinese energy company. Of course this deal making was under the radar until alternative media outlets exposed the deal. The BLM’s officially stated purpose for forcibly removing Bundy’s cattle from the property was to protect an endangered desert tortoise. It should be noted that in 1993 the BLM had a program for exterminating the very turtles that now have become so politically expedient.

The parallels between 2014 and 1863 are remarkable. Chinese corporatists are following in the footsteps of New England industrialists; Harry Reid, et. al. is playing the role of William Seward, et. al.; BLM’s confrontation with militiamen and First Manassas, without the shooting; and the desert tortoise and slaves.

The common thread between 2014 and 1863 is the virus centralized political power. The difference between 2014 and 1863 is that Southerners tried to stop the spread of the virus and provide an effective antidote, the CSA Constitution. One-hundered and forty-nine years later the virus has spread beyond any treatment. It’s time for major surgery, an amputation of the diseased organ known as the the District of Columbia. If Nevadans want the BLM, the Chinese, and political criminals such as Harry Reid out of their lives and the lives of their posterity, they need to realize that the cancer of centralization is metastasizing at a rapid rate. The BLM goons that placed them in the scopes of their fully automatic weapons will, like most lethal cancerous cells, return with a vengeance.
