Why Do We Allow This to Go On?

Author 6190
Message Dennis Diehl
Why do the average people on the planet abide fools as their leaders?  How many murdering, narcissists, psychos, misfits, dictators and generally unseemly human beings can you think of who rise to places of leadership in this world?
In the past we had our Stalin,  Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot and only God knows all the others, who eliminated millions from the planet.  ONE human piece of slime determines whether millions live or die.  And "we" allow it.  Many join it to save themselves.  Why do we do that?
Today we have the enigmatic and odd Kim Jon, IL, threatening to turn South Korea into ashes.  Is this guy bored or just drunk again?  He's turned his entire country into a  POW camp of the darkest and dankest kind. He's sucked the spirit out of the people and those who seek to save their own hides enable one to do so.  Why do the many support the one to oppress most?  Why do we allow that?
Time would fail us to note how Africans tolerate the one man psychopath.  Same formula. One out of touch, depraved psychopath, using the few to support the repression of the many.  They rape the country literally and financially and then look around in utter innocence when confronted and ask, "who me?"  When voted out, they stay and when pushed they kill.  And it's allowed to be so.  Why do we do that?
Over the past 18 years we have allowed our own homegrown dynasties to rape the treasury, enrich themselves and eliminate a couple million folks from the planet in the process, that we know about.  More chilling is that these are the deeply Christian types who claim to know Jesus and deeply appreciate the Sermon on the Mount, or the Plain depending on which Gospel you read.  Truly the most frightening kind of one man show. 
Our duly elected leader, or not, hears the voice of God telling him to do God's work in the world by conquest and stealth.  The voice of his God is decidedly Old Testament in it's tone. And no one questions it very much. Now I might talk to God in prayer, but when God talks back, it's really mental illness.  Why do we allow that?
Our Constitution has been edited. Our laws turned against us. Criminal acts go unpunished, and criminals in high places not only go unpunished but thrive.  They exempt themselves from obeying the very things they sign into law for us and set up our society in such a way as to literally take it over, by law, should they ever feel the need.  Why do we allow that? 
If elections get cancelled to keep these types in the jobs they have covet, will we allow that too?  What will we think after we have to admit, "I guess we saw it coming?" 
Our Vice President is asked if it matters that most of the American public are against the war in Iraq and that it was based on less than truth.  He says "so," and no one blinks.  When followed up with whether he cares what the public thinks,   he just says "No."  Why do we allow that?  Why is that not bigger news?  Does everyone have a folder on them somewhere listing all their sins and sexual preferences that may make it to the front page long before we find out those in power don't care what Americans think? 
It's an enigma to me.  The Bush Dynasty has eliminated 1,200,000 non-Americans and 70,000 US military men and women from the planet since 1990.  Why did we allow that?  They seem to sleep well.  Barbara Bush made it clear that she was not about to sully her beautiful mind thoughts about such things.  Why do we allow that?  George W. gives everyone the finger in his oft shown speech and pumps his fist to tell us he feels good in launching Operation Piss and Vinegar.  He even made annoying faces prior to going live on 9-ll, not knowing they were recorded.  Why do we allow this?  Why are these things not played for everyone to see?  I'm not naive...I actually know why.
Why have we allowed any of this to go on and on?  Because and evidently, unlike the French, Americans are afraid of their government.  Enough has been put in place to make them afraid of it.  It's how the evil few get to rule over the fearful and compliant. 
I was told by a retired CIA acquaintance that the lesson he learned in his work for America was that "nothing in this world is as you are being told."  I believe him.  I don't want to, but I do.  Why do we allow that?
It used to be a proper blessing for the Czar was, "May God Bless and Keep the Czar Far Away from Us."  I'm not sure that works anymore.  They just get us all into more mischief when ignored.  And the average person just can't afford to keep ignoring this much longer.  What we will end up with is no Second Coming, which seems a ridiculous goal of the Christian Loons who advice this administration, and a huge sanitation problem on the planet to deal with. 
 Of course, it will be cleaning up what's left of the little people.
