From this writer’s perspective, an attack on Iran either by Israel with the United States aiding in the attack, or a unilateral attack on Iran by the U.S. has consequences that far outweigh the benefits of such an attack that are guaranteed to finish-off our economy, usher in martial law, and could lead to World War III if the U.S. proceeds without the tacit approval of Russia and China. As tensions increase, and even Pakistan becomes unstable, there’s a chance that an Iranian War could set the whole Middle-East on fire as has been foretold countless times.

Most Americans have no idea the situation is this serious, lulled into complacency by a MSM that still refuses to address issues that are vital to our national security and ability to maintain the democratic republic we live in - all of whom are controlled by corporate interests whose agenda is contrary to that of the American people. The terms “treason” and “subversion” are thrown around lately describing several government activities - however, none of them would be possible without the complicity of the MSM; their crimes border on both of the above for failing to uphold their journalistic duty that a free press has traditionally been charged with but is now nothing more than an extension of the Pentagon’s propaganda system. A free press is tantamount in keeping our government in check, but the way the press works now, it’s not “free” - but bought and sold as if it was simply another commodity. When we press our Congress for answers, if we do not challenge and “out” the MSM for being the corporate whores they are, there’s no question that we are ignoring one of the core problems that our society faces in a nation that is turning towards fascism and an MSM which condones and abets their (the government) conspiracy.

The future for all of us hangs on by a thread; we will either attack Iran and finish-off our economy and be embroiled in several years of more unnecessary war or we will band together in solidarity and demand that our voices are heard. This is an individual choice, one that everyone needs to make, and those who choose to do nothing will reap what they have sown as gas and food prices begin their upward trend directly after the 2008 Presidential elections. The lowering of fuel prices is no accident, but engineered by the GOP to take our minds off of critical issues that are destroying the American way of life. Don’t be fooled and don’t be lulled into complacency just because we have a short respite from being raped at the gas pumps and grocery stores, as this is only the calm before the storm. Look ahead, examine the lies we’ve already been told, and demand, today and until we receive a satisfactory answer - that Congress and our electoral process work for the people rather than against us, and remember that the GOP has proven themselves to be enemies of freedom and prosperity except for the chosen few that inhabit the ranks of the wealthy and elitists who are busy destroying the American Dream.

I am nothing more than a patriotic American that is doing whatever I can to further the cause of democracy, the rule of law, and am extremely concerned in regard the slow creep of "soft fascism" that has been destroying America's middle-class. I (more...)
