Are we being rolled out of intensive care back to health? Forgive the metaphors, but it’s hard to talk about immensity any other way.
The agony of our country has many parts:
(1.) The dead center of everything is the neocon cabal which has hijacked our country for the Israeli lunatic fringe right wing. Call the author anything you like, BUT MOST OF AMERICA KNOWS THIS IS TRUE. The Likud Party nut case religious fanatics and billionaires of Israel's right wing extremists have totally dominated our foreign policy for the last eight years (actually more).
(2.) 9/11! This will be the watershed event of America since the Civil War. The depths of this treason are sunk into bottomless hell. The Bush/Republicans didn't just "screw up"; they almost certainly facilitated the event. Literally hundreds of sites on the net are burgeoning with facts, scientific analysis, and hundreds of observations which powerfully indicate this event was not only "allowed", it was ENGINEERED. And by whom? Well, who was in office and who were they answering to? Questions, questions, questions of national/international treason . . .
(3.) Money cow oil wars for America's vampire rich, fought, of course, with our cannon fodder children for Cheney/Halliburton vampires of greed. The gap between the pig, pig rich and what's left of America's middle and lower classes has never been so great. America is now unequivocally a Dictatorship of the Rich, ruthlessly defended (from us!) by what is now an Elite Police State.
(4.) The utter soul selling of America's news media and "entertainment" industry. A few heroes and exceptions prove the rule, but otherwise it’s all follow the money. And the money trail leads where? To the neocon acronyms, of course, that are now America's masters.
(5.) The rape and murder of Mother Nature during the last eight years and trashing of most of our hard and heart won environmental protections is heartbreaking beyond words. It's also a recipe for Homo sapien extinction.
This list, sadly, could go on and on, but the big idea is that as a nation we are dying. This is no exaggeration. Our Constitutional Republic, as stated above, has been in intensive care.
