FIFA And The U.S. Congress – An Unholy Double Standard

headshot

FIFA officials are under indictment from the U.S. Attorney General,  for taking kickbacks to influence their voting.   Exactly like the U.S. system of paying off members of the House and Senate to influence their voting.   So a soccer federation is being held to a higher legal standard than the White House and the Congress of the United States.  

Bernie Sanders is absolutely right, it’s time for a political revolution in America.  The following, written long ago by American patriot Tom Paine, is once again on point. 

“THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”   -‘The Crisis’ byThomas Paine, December 23, 1776
