Model for America’s Demise: The Western Roman Empire

Everybody can feel the decline and decay. Even doughy Boomers who spent their life voting for liberal after liberal now see that they are standing at the threshold of hell. It gets kind of boring constantly commenting on the slip into the coming dark age. As a lover of history, I have read up on different declines and tried to figure out which path is the one America will most likely take. As an optimist and having recency bias, I considered the decline of the British Empire as our model. The USA like the UK borrowed too much, fought too many wars of choice in far off lands, and its leadership turned its back on faith and tradition. Firepower harps on the decline of the Western Roman Empire as our model, and I will now throw in my lot with that assessment. America will go down like the Western Roman Empire from self-inflicted wounds, betrayal by its elite, and invasion by barbarians.

The Western Roman Empire was created later as the Roman Empire had grown too large to properly administer and had too long of a frontier to defend. Even before the split, the Empire had spent far too much loot on importing luxuries for the elite. The Empire also had run out of productive agricultural lands to raid, plunder, conquer and rule. By the time of the split, Rome itself was not the seat of power, Ravenna had taken over as the Emperor’s home. Still, even in 400, there was glory in Rome. The barbarians would end that.

The Western Empire had seen its elite and everyday citizens participate less and less with defense, and more was subcontracted to barbarians of all stripes. In the 4th Century, Rome and the fertile lands of central Italy were sacked four times, with only the Pope preventing Atilla the Hun from making it five times. The last sack would be the end of the Western Empire, and it was performed by a man, Theoderic the Great, and a people, the Ostrogoths, that have some parallels to our modern American situation.

Theoderic was a warrior leader of the Ostrogoths who was educated at the Eastern Empire court. His people had fought for the Empire at times but also had created massive havoc in Eastern provinces. Theoderic’s people were always clamoring for a home of their own. Theoderic played his cards right and with skill, sacked Rome, removed the show Western Emperor, did not allow a new phony emperor to be crowned, and played nice with the Romans as he ruled. Ostrogoths set up shop and lived well. If the Ostrogoths were a minority in Italy, how did they rule? They treated the elite land owning Romans very well. The elite large estate patricians were happy with their treatment because Theoderic did not disrupt the status quo, and allowed them to keep their wealth.

A barbarian minority of limited education? Check. The barbarians come from another area that they are oppressed and blocked from ruling? Check. Exhausted culture of the target area? Check. An elite that was fine with whomever ruled as long as they kept their wealth? Check. Prior disturbances in target area by other barbarians that did not incite vengeance by the elite? Check. A civil administration that would take orders from whomever held the crown? Check. Let’s just hope the Mexicans don’t find their Theoderic. If we were to look for him, he’ll probably have tattoos and a Harvard degree in Spanish.

Eradican Manifesto

by Firepower

What your enemy fears most … do.

America is finished; it is gone. We now live in Murka. A nation ruled by (LN) Liberal nazis, staffed and implemented by MINOs (all preferred classes of minorities) running the Minority Master Machine – the MMM.

Most jews are your enemy but so are WASPs.  Combined, these exclusive groups are The Ruling “elite” – those living in Fortress Manhattan, etc. and the local “rich cities” near you that you know.  Combined, they are the one true enemy: TOTE.

Most whites are your enemy – your greatest enemy. They are hopelessly brainwashed from successful decades of LN/MM BIGovSchool brainwashing propaganda programs. The administrators of BGS (BIGovSkools) are Harvard, Yale and Ivy League Elites living in DC and funded by Manhattanites. It is staffed by MINOs but ….

Combat The Beast Fears

Fucked FOUR Generations of Bush – AND Clintons!

Vietnam proved long ago the USG is beatable. The same Perfumed Princes who dodged the draft in 1971 became colonels in 1991 under Bill “Cumshots” Clinton and generals in 2001 – or outright Republican Rulers like Georgie (Pantload) W. Bush. They are an Evil that serves wildly disparate rulers with equal duplicity. There is a proof Mr. Firepower freely gives you to always use as a test to determine Evil: If a demon survives both a Bush and Obama regime it is a True Evil.

Supposedly, Bushie was a “history major” in Harvard; he obviously got The Gentleman’s “C” while dodging class to bang debutantes in his drunken frathouse seccapades.  It’s what Elites do. They’ll keep on doing worse to your grandchildren and ancestors until they are eradicated – both Houses of Filth.  It truly astounds how a …

Firepower’s Vision, Eradica – and The Fall

by Firepower

Most of you know I’ve blogrolled Victor Davis Hanson in my Aces Category since Eradica’s inception. (see lower right margin)

Much of what he writes, even I find tough going; it’s just his style.  He is the very example of a wise man.  I recommend studying his works: His area is warfare, from antiquity to present.  Pay heed.  He is smarter than Pat Buchanan; he is more educated.  Ann Coulter reads every single word he writes –  you can tell:  She’d date the Hell out of him.  Limbaugh asks him questions then stfus – when he’s not lifting my Liberal Nazism vision.

So, I don’t know either to be pissed or pleased that he now sees what I’ve envisioned all along.  I’ll lean toward…

Tricks of the Stock Market

Eat it, ya greedy bastards

Where Has All the Trading Gone? Volume Hits 4-Year Low – Fast Money – CNBC – CNBC.

Beware that caveat “4-year low.” You need to see what volume was in 2000, during the boom years. Today’s stock market is not the real stock market – no more PALM, JDSU, WorldCOMM or “Covaddexient” made-up name dot.com bull from the dot.com bubble. Hundreds of stocks are long gone. The goalposts were moved. Remember that 1.4 you got in Organic Chem? We’ve fixed your college transcripts! You really got a 4.2 – congratulations! That clap you got from your Nigerian girlfriend was really…Baby Unicorn Kisses!

When they made the Dow look bad, the turds were removed from the index.  All those stocks that once made up that Dow were removed from polite company – like a farting step-child with Tourette’s.  The rules were changed to rig the game; while folks don’t necessarily grasp this, they can sense a con.

You’re in a Shell Game. Now – and for the past decade – you get the embalmed Dow.  Lenin’s Tomb Dow.  Fake Dow. Hell, even GM was re-jiggered to suit the fatcats and Government – a deadly duo. Goldman Sachs wants Saint Obama to win; they’ve spent a lot of money on him. Still, they can’t even muster up enough of their own slimy skin in the game to keep the charade of programmed trading alive.

Good luck trying to find the stock market trading volume charts going back to the 2000 heydays; they must be awful. They’re impossible to find. If you find it, send me a link.

Food For Thought: At the end of 2010, the total market cap (worth) of all publicly traded US companies was $14 Trillion. Total US government debt is today $15.5 Trillion, and rising.

Firepower’s Percentage Law

by Firepower

Eradication.

If it is not enacted, Murka will become irretrievable. Hopeless instead of lost.
This is Firepower’s Eradican Law of Percentage:

If only 50% of LNs are eradicated, in 50 years they will return stronger than today.
If 75% are eradicated, in 75 years they again return with a vengeance.

This is why every LN must be eradicated. This also applies to MINOs. You do not leave a rat in your pantry. You do not let Smallpox survive – the exception is perhaps as only an example cryogenically frozen in an Alpine lab.

Simply put: imagine an armed man stranded in a…..
