As I sit here I can hardly believe that I will write the following words in my lifetime of 52 years, but it is time to do a reality check on the real reasons America is on the brink of total collapse.
All I can see, whether on OpEd, CNN, or FoxNews, is the complete political magic trick of misdirection getting US, We the People, to divide ourselves on such stupid things as blaming Republicans or Democrats for what is all of our faults. Democrats did not do this to US, Republicans did not do this to US, and we did it to ourselves by thinking that our selfish one way was the right way, when the only thing is compromise on all sides as the real answer to the issue. This magic trick by both Democrats and Republications has kept America focused on who right rather than doing the right thing for the country.
While we all were fighting about who was right, thieves stole 13 trillion dollars from your retirement plan. While we argued and thumped our chests that we can defeat 3rd world nations with madmen at the helm, our civil rights and freedoms were taken away in the name of security. While we celebrated "Change", we were sold out by those who promised this change to the same group of people that truly got us in this position. Nobody, democrat or republican, has said one word on a long term plan to create "real" jobs that will bring the wealth and future economic security back to America that American's seek.
As America awakes from its slumber and starts to see what has been happening and begins to protest the actions WE the People have found offensive, the red coats now kick down our doors once again, lists are made of "domestic terrorists" once again, dissidents, housewife's and children who have the courage to say something is wrong are gathered and jailed once again. Your email is read, your phone conversations heard and your life nothing more than peep show for a Governmental peeping tom's masturbating at their power.
Honorable ideas like Drunk Driving, Megan's Law and Zero Tolerance in schools have been perverted to make money for the power base by setting the standard of "drunk" to a level that one drink can put you over the limit and ruin your life, that taking a pee on the side of the road is a sexual crime that will put you on a list of sexual predators and Zero Tolerance where a kindergartner who pulls the hair of a female kindergartner is a sexual predator. The blood of all of those lives ruined, including those who have taken their own life, for the profit of a few is on the hands of these angry agenda seekers. Your anger and pain have been twisted into evil for profit and you are responsible.
The plan by the power base to have control of all of the avenues of un-approved change by controlling the courts, the banks, law enforcement and using oppression through fear of speaking out was a long time in the planning and is now truly and wholly mission accomplished. Every member of congress, every member of state houses and every local politician can not be trusted on any level, period. If they have not been bought by big business, they have reached their own hands into our cookie jar or have created their retirement slush funds. In truth, nothing that we think or wish is true is true. The nation has become one massive lie on top of another that we all have bought into because to deal with the reality of what we truly as a nation have become is disgusting and we are fearful cowards to speak the truth.
We have become nothing more than sheep sheared of taxes and get no value for those taxes. We do not get police protection but a police state. Our children are 25th in math and 21st in science but we are number one in property taxes to pay for it. While our military is number one we use it to slaughter 3rd world nations to run up trillions more of debt on a war that would pay for itself with oil sales. Every aspect of our Government has failed from FEMA failure during Katrina, The SEC on Wall Street, the Environmental Protection Agency in the Gulf and now the DOJ that now determines the worthiness of a crime to be investigated and prosecuted based on skin color. If God reached down his hand and crushed this planet like a walnut would you blame him?
The question is will We the People continue to be fooled too allow the status quo, democrat or republican, power based to maintain control or will We the People break the control. I know your worried about wacko's but truth be told if they are wacko they wont get anything done anyhow, but more importantly, they wont have time to be bought and paid for by status quo of Washington or your state.
The only true non-violent change that can happen in America is the removal of every person in Washington and your local state levels. Once the power is broken there is a chance. The other thing that needs to be done is taking the money out of politics, as this is all about money and power.
Money is power and power is money. We the People need to go back to our founding fathers and demand representation for our taxes. Not the illusion of representation that we have today, but real representation. Representation that when the people as a whole say what we want, Washington and our individual states hear us and CLEARLY explain the choice and how it will be funded. This can all be done via electronic means.
Americans must stop paying for worthless or broken services. We can do this because we can demand that our taxes be held in escrow until these conditions are met. The only other choice is an all out civil war, one that I fear can not be avoided. We must start a national movement to bring taxes to an end that are mandatory and make it a sales tax/flat tax so that we can regain control of the power of money. Only then when the county is flourishing and employment is high will the Government get its money. Don't do the right thing for the county and people will stop spending and the taxes drop, the power drops and they will be forced to do the right thing to get their money back.
America is at a true crossroads, one that has not presented itself in over 200 years. We the People have to make a choice to be free or become indentured servants of the present power system for the balance of time. I know there is a lot of fear out there but I ask you to remember what happened in Russia. Prior to their fight for freedom, the KGB and the Russian Government were 10 times as oppressive as we in America are now. As our founding fathers did and the people of Russia have done, the human need to be free is greater than one's self preservation and if it is not done now, our children will not only be handed 13 trillion in debt, but the shackles of life long slavery that will grow exponentially more oppressive and controlling over the next several years. The choice is ours.
