If you're a Republican, or vote Republican against your own best interests — unless you're a two percenter — and you can't believe Republicans are seriously trying to tank the U.S. economy, think again. This isn't the action of irrational people. Treasonous, maybe, but irrational, no. The sole remaining impediment to Republicans making money hand-over-fist from another Great Depression is President Obama. Mitch McConnell openly declared his top priority is defeating Obama in 2012. As we have seen from accidental revelations of Republicans like Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan who stand to benefit from investments and policies that bet against economic recovery, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Watch and you'll understand the evil webs these Republicans weave. They've taken this dude's advice. They're uniquely prepared:
Then this dude goes on to say he wants to “help people” actually make money from a “downward market” because in less than 12 months “my prediction is, the savings of millions of people [will] vanish. So, I would say, be prepared and act now.” But wait, Teabaggers, there's still hope. Comes the AntiChrist to the rescue, and ... Rapture! Lawrence explains:“See, I’m a trader. I don’t really care about that kind of stuff. If I see an opportunity to make money I go with that. So, for most traders, we don’t really care that much how they’re going to fix the economy, how they’re going to fix the whole situation. Our job is to make money from it. And, personally, I’ve been dreaming of this moment for years.
I have a confession: I GO TO BED EVERY NIGHT, I DREAM ABOUT ANOTHER RECESSION, I dream of another moment like this. Why? Because people don’t seem to maybe remember, but the 30’s DEPRESSION, the (GREAT DEPRESSION) of the 1930s wasn’t just about the market crash. There were people who were prepared to make money from that crash. And I think anybody can do that. It's not just for some people in the elite. ... It’s an opportunity. When the market crashes, when the Euro and the big stock markets crash, if you know what to do, if you have the right plan set up, you can make a lot of money from this. For example hedging strategies is one, [the Republicans — Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan, whose investments against economic recovery came accidentally to light] then investing in bonds, Treasury bonds, that sort of stuff.
Everybody who’s watching this; this economic crisis is like a cancer. If you just wait and wait, thinking this is going away … just like a cancer, it’s going to grow and it’s going to be too late. What I would say to everybody is, get prepared. This is not a time right now to wishful thinking that government is going to sort things out. The governments don’t rule the world. Goldman Sachs rules the world. Goldman Sachs does not care about this rescue package, neither do the big funds.”
