There is a sickness in america today that seems to be growing both on all sides, it is exemplafied by the events at bundy ranch but even that is just the tip of the iceburg.

There is an attitude of so long as its happening to people I don't like it doesn't matter what the government do and this is both wrong and dangerous. It needs to stop.

I'll give you some examples.

When it came out that the BLM might be killing cattle where were PETA? moaning that the white house were using real eggs in the white house easter egg hunt.

As we speak American indians are being targeted by the federal government for the same unjust reasons as the Bundy ranch, yet where are the Militia pledging to go to their aid if they need it?

If you let the government set a precident against your political enemies, it can only and will forever be a precident that can be turn against you.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

I doesn't matter who the government has decided to persecute today, if you stand by and do nothing you will wake up one day to find that the government has decided that you are their enemy and god help you on that day because if you haven't stood to protect those who are wronged irrespective of your opinions of their beliefs or lifestyle they will do nothing but sit and watch as you are systematically brutalized, demonized and destroyed.

What is behind our problems is the insidious oligarchy and their brainwashing techniques. Just like they convinced us at one time it was acceptable to enslave a person because they were black. Just like they convinced us that we had to go to Viet Nam and spread democracy. Just like they are trying to convince us that Bundy does not have to follow the law like his other peers. He is their special brainwashing tool.

Chomsky gave a talk at Princeton, declaring that America is a Polyarchy. In effect, America was established and run by a cohesive national elite, while the public has always been fragmented with individualistic agendas. Americans don't have to allow elites to wage perpetual war (at their expense) in foreign lands for their increased profit and power. Yet all one hears from the media is the clamor of patriotic fervor and support of the troops, while the aggressions of war can be seen in the economic devastation of two Middle Eastern countries. Can anyone really blame Mr. Putin for his own land grab?

Hate to admit this, but In every country I've visited, Americans are generally viewed as the dumbest, most brainwashed people on the planet. These are not pretty things to see and hear when you love your country.
