The power of the elderly in the USA

50

Significant fact: the leading candidates for the presidency of the USA - everything is like a selection of stately old men. Bernie Sanders is the old man on the left, Joe Biden is the old man on the right, and in the middle the youngest is 73-year-old Donald Trump kissing the American flag. The independent candidate "on the side" billionaire Bloomberg is also an old man!


The "deep" power of the elderly


American democracy today is the power of the club of old billionaires, deep, unlimited and insanely. The power of money gives rise to the power of the elderly, who always have more money and connections than the young. And senility too. Only the latter can explain the paranoid campaigns about "Trump and Putin conspiracy" and "interference in the US election."

Some old people are replaced by others, no less reliable. Try to convince an old man familiar to you in something. And the old man with money and power? The money of the elderly in combination with the achievements of medicine has become a curse for the West.

The "deep state" of American "democracy", in fact, is a hybrid of gerontocracy and plutocracy. And their methods are appropriate, "the time of Ochakov and the subjugation of the Crimea." They even lied to President Trump: an alien old man! Hence the bets on “dark horses”, like an unknown doctor of law from Barack Obama with Joe Biden watching him.

“But their science is not strong against the time of law” (Pushkin)


Now Biden himself enters the presidential race. There were no suitable "dark horses"? With the support of old man George Soros, who will have to neutralize Biden’s “Ukrainian dossier” through his “suckers” in Ukraine. In general, Soros is a vivid representative of this class, just a living dead man walks on TV and broadcasts old platitudes about the “open society” of the trivial propagandist Karl Popper, who had long been dead and forgotten.

Not only presidential candidates, but also top officials of the US intelligence services and the media are also excellent oldies. Gerontocracy with dementia in power. Sometimes these old men look magnificent, but they think according to old patterns.

Hence the template paranoia: the Russians intervened everywhere, so the “Putin virus” hit the United States - it struck the imagination of these old people who still live in the twentieth century. Their world is collapsing, and they are tearing down their evil in Russia, Putin, and China - the other does not occur to them.

The crisis of democracy-gerontocracy


The political crisis in the United States is a generational crisis that the imperious club of old people in the United States is shifting to Russia and Putin personally. For (theoretically) holy democracy cannot fall into a generational crisis, and one has to hide that in the USA there is no "holy democracy", but there is "Russian intervention".

The West fell into crisis because of its old age, so the American election turned into a tragicomedy, a competition of old people in the stands, which are very reminiscent of Soviet funeral carriages.

In November, we will find out if America will be saved in the next presidential election. The United States is clearly following the path of the USSR, which in recent years has also staged a competition on carriages. Our descendants, if they will, will remember this time as hard years of rampant democracy and senility.

      Not so simple. Remember how mattresses were afraid that some inadequate in our country would suddenly take and start the Third World from a hangover? The same story with the United States. If the collapse of the empire begins, then no one will be able to predict which kookies will be in the process.
      As for the article ... the old people really rule the world. Moreover, it is not always adequate and sound mind. And insanity, as a diagnosis, does not care how much money is on the patient’s account.

      Indeed, the situation in the United States today resembles the "five-year funeral" in the USSR in the eighties.
      When the barely living elders did not have time to sit in the leaders of the Union.
      History is first written as tragedy, and then repeated in the form of farce.
      Old peppers in the role of the New American Politburo have already reached the stage.
      Soon behind the scenes we will hear a flood of laughter ...
      This is the Lord laughing. laughing

    Americans are doing everything right. I also tend to think that you need to elect a president the older, the better. The young one will cling to power, so then for several decades there will be no alternative to him, but the old man will not work out like that - the change of power for physiological reasons.

    One can agree with the author if the old men listed by him would really decide something. If Sosch were a state, in the classical sense of this definition, and not a platform of Masonic cut paper. After the real president, F. D. Roosevelt, who is a member of the club, and somehow managed to bend this club and not interfere with building a country, politics, at any level, in the puppet states. And not necessarily the elders. Perhaps they rule quite young representatives of the clans. For them, who received the whole planet as a toy, after the well-known events of the 90s, this is just a fight against boredom. They wanted to spit on Putin, Trump and other macrons.
    This is not insanity. The world is shaking consciously, for the sake of experiment.
    Very much everything has been logically and precisely built in recent decades, the destruction of an established system without even a hint of resistance. Not some Abams and Trumps can do it. The poor fellows rumble in search of a solution, but they are not given it, unlike the post-Roosevelt puppets, when the main obstacle, the USSR, had to be removed.

    The old people are old people, but for all the shortcomings of the political system of the states there is not an electorate like ours, but citizens. The real ones. The most striking last example: when the Virginia authorities wanted to seriously tighten the right to own weapons, 10 thousand people went to a banned rally with weapons and ammunition. And the authorities did not dare to disperse it, and the Virginians showed them that they were worthy of the memory of their great countrymen D. Washington and R. Lee.

      Real citizens would accept the new rules voiced by their chosen people. These behaved like infantile teens. True, the people they chose behaved even worse and, instead of closing the question, having called the army, stupidly bent under the local gopot.

                This is me about 1861. Having decided to suppress by force the uprising of the cotton states (except for South Carolina, there were always violent people there), which could still be forced to remain in the Union through negotiations and economic threats, they provoked an uprising of the border Missouri, Tennessee, Arkansas and Virginia, much more densely populated. After this event took on an irreversible character.

            Yes. The possibilities are completely different. You see, the previous Washington administration argued for restrictions on the firearm, but it was very tricky, pushing this matter aside at the discretion of the states, pretending that it had nothing to do with it. But now the winds in the Washington area have changed and it is very likely that the feds said to sort it out themselves.

        If you speak English, you can search, there is such a list for mattress servicemen in the tyrnet: "orders that we will not obey." There are 2 very interesting points:
        1. We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people.
        2. We will NOT obey any orders that violate people's rights to freedom of speech, peaceful assembly, and petition the government.
        As B. Franklin said: Democracy is when two wolves and a lamb vote on the lunch menu. Freedom is when a well-armed lamb disputes the outcome of such a vote.

          The example is certainly excellent! However, Franklin was a smart person and did not give a reverse example. Two lamb and a wolf gossip over lunch. A well-armed wolf with money, lawyers disputes this vote in their favor. Who is stronger is right. The power of the herd of lambs for the Franklin wolf was originally a fiction, a skilled mousetrap.

          The people in America live in isolation. They are afraid of everything. We are ready for any job for a cent. Los Angeles is a city of vagabonds and beggars. Miami is a place to score a paravozik.
          Florida is generally dull !!! People came to the store stint, passers-by and you will not meet. Someone likes such a life. By the way. Our emigrants communicate with each other, and if there is a holiday, everyone carries a snack with them. Yes. Not against. But when it turns into a duty, it resembles the expression: - At first yours ... then each one is different))
          And those demonstrations that show people pay a cent, and only then come out ...

    Old people are old people, but only I think that these same old people associate themselves with their country to a much greater extent than our later general secretaries, not to mention the remodelers.
    There is no dispute - somewhere after the 60s they add neither intelligence, nor health, nor judgment, but mostly health problems and other age-related "smut", but:
    - against tyrants, al-americans have a real system of separation of powers and the president is by no means omnipotent;
    - Against the potential Gorbachev, we have developed a complex and completely Darwinian system for selecting candidates - party members simply will not let the renegade win;
    - Behind any of the candidates is a lot of money, the owners of which want to earn even more money, and this is only possible in a strong, united and aggressive country.
    Do not even rely on the US "self-collapse" - this country is the most stable formation, because it gives the population real hopes for "equal opportunities" to self-realization - nonsense, of course, but it works flawlessly.

The chain dog of the West in the Middle East Benya Naianyaga flies to bow to comrade Kim Jong-un, greedily hoping to find a new owner who will pay him vile blows from around the Syrian Lebanese corner!

    Coronavirus: "My dear old men, let me kiss you now ..."
    Essentially. "Do you need checkers, or should we go?" The main thing is the performer's functionality. Those who will carry out a world revolution (or a coup) are now in power. All the events of recent months only scatter attention and mask the essence of the ongoing changes. Obviously, the existing order based on "European values" is crumbling in Europe and, most likely, a return to the old order is impossible. What about "human rights", "visa-free travel", low-cost airlines, recreation areas ("all inclusive") and other achievements? These are markers. And they seem to have forgotten about Britain and "Brexit". Sparkling Boris Johnson went somewhere deep. China, where all production chains begin, showed everyone the real "mother of Kuzma". This is probably not all. The number of unemployed (yes, unemployed, not just quarantined) is growing. Given the debt burden of Europeans and US citizens, such bad phenomena cannot last long. When the masses have nothing to buy food for, it will be necessary to introduce other mechanisms and create a new management system. The client is not yet ripe, but it's just a matter of time. What "elections", what "turnover of power"? The process has started!
