Our President lied, our Vice President lied, a senior advisor lied so well he was awarded and now serves as President of the World Bank. Our Secretary of State lied to the United Nations, live and on TV to the world. All the President's men lied, and their putative partisan opposition joined in support. Our majority-Democrat Senate signed up with the liars, including the then Democrat Senate Majority Leader and the current Democrat Senate Majority Leader, and my home state's current senior Democrat Senator, and the current Democrat Secretary of State, our chief diplomatic officer! Unless they were legally imbecilic, they knew, and they lied.
And the people of America signed on, cheering their warrior children off to murder and destroy and get themselves killed, while castigating us who knew and dared to hold up the truth and pleading for humanity as traitors who did not "Support Our Troops!" Such villainous and successful propaganda make the homefront efforts of Hitler and Goebbels appear amateurish by comparison.
Yes, we had "Freedom's On the March!" and then the all-time historical manipulation "Support Our Troops!" and now we continue to nod in wide-eyed servility to "Well, We Can't Just Cut and Run!" while a few of us innocents stand by the side of the mainstream asking ourselves: "What the fugg does that mean?" Yes, actually we do know: endless treachery is what it means, unless -- the entire leadership being complicit -- we somehow can get the critical mass, not a majority, but one-million-plus in place and refusing to be moved from the very steps of power until the treachery is stopped.
Meanwhile, back at our Treasury, our future is being shipped to the greed meisters by truckloads, and the best incomprehensibility that is offered is: "They're too big to allow to fail!" ("They" being the incompetents and greed merchants who destroyed our economy by their misfeasance and malfeasance.) And with eyes now perhaps a bit glazed, having read of the "necessity" of million-dollar "retention bonuses," the nodding heads keep bobbing away while awaiting their turn to apply for unemployment compensation before attending their own foreclosure session, or perhaps to appeal once again to the VA for treatment of their PTSD ("Cowards is what they are!" bizarrely say the most avid of the Support-Our-Troops crazies.)
Why isn't anyone angry? Or, more accurately, why are not sufficient people angry and determined -- the establishment having abused them, our government complicit, the normal political recourse either paid-off or metastasized -- to arouse themselves to the remedy, the remedy that appears to be the ultimate resort of an abused and beggared citizenry -- and that is to mass at the steps of treacherous power, and not leave until we are assured peace and decent government, that is the return of ALL our soldiers from the Middle East and the resurrection of our, OUR Bill of Rights!
Join me on the steps. We'll need a million real friends of America. Prepare to stay until we earn back America.
Either way, consider one more time this aged political wisdom: We have and will have the government we DESERVE..
