After Vietnam, We Never Thought We Would Do This Again

After Vietnam we thought there was a victory. No one in their wildest dreams would ever believe that we would be that stupid again. Under our noses, silently, work was taking place. Not only were we that stupid again. We actually started a war, trumpeted by the media, openly commit torture and detain non military civilians without a fair due process by just labeling them a terrorist.

I believe we did this once before. We almost wiped out the native Americans. I think the third time is a charm; we don't get a fourth chance.

Obama will be president who is better than Clinton. He will have to initiate the draft. I only hope that under his leadership, as commander in chief, he will be more humane than Bush and not ask our soldiers to be evil. Under the table we will officially become the world police for OPEC who will help us with our debts in return for protection and China will forgive some of our debt for food and we the people will be poor working to serve the world to pay off our debt. You watch, and we deserve it, plain and simple.

In board rooms around the nation a new constitution will be ironed out promoted by the media, one that protects the people, the media will promote it and the people will buy it. This constitution may cover us, Canada and Mexico complete with a new monetary system that secretly writes off billions in debt. Like I said, I can only wonder what the new flag will look like.

Me, I'm just going to have a garden, raise chickens, fruits and nuts and hope that the internet is still free so I can voice my opinion. No more protests, sending hundreds of dollars to a candidate who will just give up, no, no more of that. No more heart ache about a nation going under because it's already gone.
