... the [DNC] delegates in the convention hall went home in full revolutionary spirit. They don’t want to unite America. They want to conquer it.
There is a deepening divide among us.
On one side of that divide is the group refernced in the quote. If we believe the quote, they are out to 'conquer us' , and subject us all to government handouts. On the other side is another group of equally strange people. A group who seem to have very little interest in repairing the system, choosing instead to simply move on.

This is the future. Instead of one person one vote, it's one share one vote. It's the newest model - one where nation states have been supplanted, where you don't have any say in how the board of directors runs the city, but you have the option to move to a different corporate-city.Investors can begin construction in six months on three privately run cities in Honduras that will have their own police, laws, government and tax systems now that the government has signed a memorandum of agreement approving the project.
An international group of investors and government representatives signed the memorandum Tuesday for the project that some say will bring badly needed economic growth to this small Central American country and that at least one detractor describes as "a catastrophe."
The "model cities" will have their own judiciary, laws, governments and police forces. They also will be empowered to sign international agreements on trade and investment and set their own immigration policy.
Congress president Juan Hernandez said the investment group MGK will invest million to begin building basic infrastructure for the first model city near Puerto Castilla on the Caribbean coast. That first city would create 5,000 jobs over the next six months and up to 200,000 jobs in the future, Hernandez said. South Korea has given Honduras million to conduct a feasibility study, he said.

Michael Strong, an executive with the MKG Group that was granted this project, stated that the objective is to create a secure and prosperous community for Hondurans.
The development of the physical infrastructure laid out in phase one of the project will result in 5,000 new jobs, as well as 15,000 indirect new jobs.
Article 8. – The REDs must establish their own police force, and are authorized to perform the said function on their own, or through proxy. Therefore, for this purpose, the REDs may enter into cooperative agreements with other countries or regions.
The new Model Cities will have their own police force, and will enlist a highly-reputable policing authority to train police officers and hold the police leadership accountable for fair and effective policing. In addition, there will be an audit committee that is overseen by a Transparency Commission, which is an independent body, with the power to gather and evaluate such information and statistics on crime rate, and the efficiency in handling of crimes by the legal system, as well as police misconduct.
Who is Michael Strong? From his about page:
These are corporate anarchists. Plain and simple. They're here. Now.In order to create an educational system capable of improving the happiness and well-being of humanity, we need to reduce, and ultimately eliminate, government involvement in education at all levels, as well as government restrictions on the free pursuit of whatever occupation one desires. Government financing and regulation of education at all levels prevents the emergence of the more authentic, humane, and effective forms of education that we need. Thus around the world we need to move towards a principled separation of school and state, occupation and state, and research and state.
Here is a list of people were appointed by the President of Honduras to the commission which will run the cities:
- George Akerlof – Professor of Economics at the University of California at Berkeley, Senior Resident Scholar at the International Monetary Fund, and Nobel Prize Winner
Harry Strachan – Former President of INCAE Business School, Director Emeritus at Bain & Co., and Managing Partner at Mesoamerica Partners and Foundation in Cost Rica
Ong Boon Hwee – Former Chief Operating Officer of Singapore Power and Former Brigadier General in the Singapore Armed Forces
Nancy Birdsall – President and Co-Founder of the Center for Global Development , former Senior Associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and former Executive Vice President at the Inter-American Development Bank
Paul Romer (Commission Chair) – Professor of Economics at the New York University Stern School of Business
Look, this might be a good thing, or a bad thing. But let's be honest with ourselves regarding where the revolutions are being incubated. From the Cayman Island flagged party yachts, to the Swiss banks, to the Chinese Foxxconn labor pools - I get the distinct feeling they've already moved on. The US is just another cookie jar to them.
I'm happy for them. I'm also fairly certain that they won't think twice about funneling American resources to build their nation-cities.
