It is beyond understanding, past comprehension how Americans can tolerate our wretched warring, greed-driven treacherous government. 
We allow it to war against any around the world who stand in the way of the primordial lust for resources.  
American Christians and Jews recognize no conflict between officialized mass slaughter and the Sixth Commandment. 
We sit obtusely by while smirking Bush lies to trash our Bill of Rights, then while Obama more loftily does the very same. 
We watch dispassionately while per plan the noose is tightened around the neck of the middle class, and we do nothing except to abide the stupid nattering of our pathetic political Punch and Judy Show, both sides of which grotesquely compete to deliver the most booty -- whatever the cost in lives and misery -- to the very same greed masters. 
We sit in catatonic amaze at the numbers steadily indicating the progressive enrichment of one percent of Americans at the expense of the terminal cancer of the middle class. 
We observe this and do nothing.  We sit dumbly by, watching civilization in reverse, the history of mankind going backwards.
Jefferson said:  "I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just."  Try that on almost any American today and most likely his lips do not move.  The dull look in his eyes says all there is.
Will this sad state of affairs ever change?  Certainly, as all things ultimately do, but issue is not "will it change?" but more crucially "when?"  The question becomes how much more military treachery and how much more economic strangulation will the citizens abide before the change is sparked. 
The history will ultimately righten itself.  The sooner that comes, the less explosive those sparks are likely to be. 
Those who lust for power and enrichment at the expense and misery of the people will not back off but will progressively crank the rack one more successive torturous notch at a time until they are stopped.
Perhaps there is an opportunity to stop them politically if we awaken to our best interests sooner rather than later.
The later we are blessed with that awareness, the more likely will be the solution ultimately employed by the founders of our ex-republic, the solution we celebrate each Fourth of July, that of revolution against an economically-stifling and treacherous government.

Rafe Pilgrim, after "a life largely wasted on hard honest work," found himself a jungle of turkey oak, scrub pine and giant palmettos up a dirt road running east of Crystal River, Florida, which neither school busses nor the U.S. Postal Service dare (more...)
