Once again, I don't think our forefathers would be proud, and I sure as hell know that they would not have given their lives (in all the wars) knowing this is what we would become.
This is a repeat link, but it is so long, filled with all the atrocities of the current administration you may have not made it completely thru the post last time I linked it. Read it and be disgusted.
I don't know, there is something about living in a country that illegally spies on your every action, every electronic expenditure, every movement, operates the NDAA, has FEMA camps and reeducation centers, has the DHS and TSA, has purchased over 2 billion rounds of ammunition for domestic use, is working on pre-crime technology, controls and intimidates the MSM, gives illegals more rights than its own citizens and prosecutes whistle blowers as terrorists just does not seem like America anymore.
There is something about being considered a terrorist in your own country if you keep more than a seven day supply of food in your home that bothers me. Even worse is that returning veterans, those that just risked their lives to defend this nations interests (not the nation mind you - its "interests") are immediately put on a terrorist watch list. It gets worse, the whistle blowers that expose the corruption from the inside are persecuted as enemies of the state when they should be praised for exposing the corrupt core of our nation. Let's not even address our congressional "representatives" shall we, that's not even worth wasting any breath on.
Face it, this one time bastion of freedom is a mere shell of its self. The war on terror is no more than a war on us. They created the bogeyman to control us. Al CIAda is our creation along with the taliban. The powers behind and above our government (as dutifully warned about by former presidents) are apparently in their final power grab. We're in transition mode from a truly free society to debt serfdom. Soon, we will no longer generate and prosper for ourselves, we will all work for and serve the state. We will serve our masters in a controlled environment that resembles a Hollywood movie script or better yet, 1984 comes to mind.
Well, that is all true is we don't do something about it. Living in the matrix, its time to take the blue pill and wake the hell up. I know that where we are headed is not where I want the Little Shanksters to grow up, nor where I want to die. Call me a sap or whatever, but I truly love this country and what it once represented. We kicked ass. We did it right.
Until....we got all full of ourselves when the Fed started dumping easy money in our laps. We all got drunk as hell on the power and freedom that this fiat brought us. We forgot every aspect of honor, hard work and determination. The easy life was here to stay. We lost our moral compass, and now we're lost and can't find our way home.
I have a feeling that a real wake up call is coming soon that will take the sheeple in the matrix off guard. The NSA fiasco was the wake up call most still seem to be ignoring. Benghazi, AP, you name it, nothing seems to sink in or stick with the still asleep sheeple. The debt serfs still can't cross that line of "It can't happen here". It's coming folks and maybe next year at this time the US will resemble Egypt now, a military coup, cause right now it's going to take millions in the streets all over this nation to get anything to change. Till then, we remain on course for a system and country that would make Hitler blush.
JFK had it right when he warned us of the true powers that run this country. He also had it right when he said, "I look forward to a great future for America - a future in which our country will match its military strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, its power with our purpose." That is the America I see and still believe in, but none of that can happen till we eradicate the evil powers that run the show.
Ronald Reagan had it right when he said, "If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under." As I penned at the beginning of this year, we've lost God and greed now rules. It will take the unsettling events that are to come with the financial and economic collapse to awaken us from our slumber, but how we react and respond to those events will mark the future of this country. Can we unite is the greatest question? Are we to far gone as a nation? Only time will tell.
GL and GB! We are gonna need it.
