Did you notice that Hillary's Vice Presidential running mate, Kaine, was listed as "not voting"? We certainly would not want anyone to know our position on anything while running for office.
Also, look at the numbers who voted for selling the arms (71) and against (27) and two not voting. Our MIC certainly has control of the Senate. Surly the House and President too.
The petrodollar is all that is keeping our fiat currency from collapsing. It is one of the reasons for our proxy wars and conflicts. The other reasons are for oil and other raw materials. We will sleep with the devil to preserve the dollar as long as we can.
BRICS countries watch out, even if you are nuclear. Libya was going to start it's own currency backed by gold. That is the reason for us ruining it and killing Qaddafi. It is also the reason for overthrowing Brazil. So we still have Russia, India, China and South Africa to ruin. Maybe we can start a war with India and Pakistan that will overflow to China and Russia in Syria and the Ukraine can be the basis for trying to ruin Russia. Be careful, Russia and China have real military's with equipment that works. South Africa, all we have to do is threaten to take the power from the wealthy white people who really control the country and threaten to really give the power to blacks.
