I feel we have passed any option of peace for change in America. People are being arrested for the most minor crimes...laws are being stretched to
include everyone and everything possible to generate more revenue....you vote for complete strangers and if you are a candidate that goes against the
grain you get no coverage. Voting is not an option.
For America to change for the better it needs outside interference or a coup de ta from within from either our military or our people. If you are
happy with America and its policies, rules, laws then of course this thread will not make sense to you and I am glad you have found peace.
I have been a soldier...with 2 deployments..a cop for almost 10 years (but no longer) and a patriot my whole life, college educated...written multiple
books and done about everything I can to be a positive asset to my country. And after all that all I can think of saying is # you America.
We are the most arrogant and distracted nation on the planet from the top down....maybe myself included.
I remember being in a bar in Germany....and a nice German fellow joined me and my friends for a drink and asked me and my friends if we could name the
4 faces of Mt Rushmore. Sadly I got 3 out of 4 and none of my friends could name it as well....he named all 4 with ease. He then went on to lecture
us about how "patriotic" we all are but we really don't know dick about our own country. Its true....we don't or didn't at the time...in
general... I think ATS does way more than the average soul on knowledge about the world...but the general population doesn't. Naturally I argued
with the man stating that this knowledge wont put food on my plate and really means nothing. He went on further to describe ...."that is the
problem"...its that I probably couldn't tell him what was in the Constitution either...or the Bill of Rights or about foreign policy..or that our
government was being hypocritical in one war to the next. Sure we all have an idea but do we really see how we violate our own dogma every day. This
man knew more about our government than I did and I was blindly defending it in two wars and some # hole bar in central Germany in argument in which I
was too ignorant to know If i had won or lost at the time.
Guys we have grounds for a revolution... But we are scared...scared of death...imprisonment..what they will do with our assets and our families. It
is going to happen...the stitches are slowly expanding and breaking...its going to catch on like a wildfire in the dry season. You can be part of
it...you can run...or you can watch...you can carry 2 flags and wave which ever one proves to be the victor so you are still considered
"patriotic".... or a "team player". There is no shame in whatever option you choose...for too long I looked out for other people and now i'm
looking out for only myself.
Soon I will be one of the few Americans that I am aware of to ever seek asylum from America. I have been living in my own real conspiracy for over a
year now and am unable to share the details as it is still going on. There are a few on here that are aware of my situation and I hope the
interactions I have had with them will show maybe what kind of person I really was.
The 1951 UN Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees states, a “refugee” is “any person who, owing to a well-founded fear of being
persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion, is outside the country of his
nationality, and is unable to or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country.”
What one of us doesn't fall into this category to some minimal extent? The illegal NSA spying alone makes us all fall into this category.
I have also come to the conclusion that nothing will change. Recently this thread ATS
made me realize...the same issues have been argued for eternity..and nothing changes. If you haven't watched the video it's great
background comedy that makes you see just how similar the issues back then were to what they are now. You would think its obvious but its not always.
I for a long time have been bothered with the results of the truth and even more bothered with the fact that nothing has changed...I blame all of
us..myself included in this. Therefore Im seeking out a more simple life...one that doesn't involve technology, big governments, extensive rules and
laws that are manipulated whenever to fit whatever tptb want. Countries involved in war constantly...policies that are hypocritical and have an
arrogance that belittles anyone who challenges and desires fact over opinion. Everything is a sales pitch...even our threads to persuade each
other...we all find ways to sell it. Ignorance is bliss...and I want bliss. Im tired of being a pawn in a never ending game of chess.
This will be my last thread..and contain my lasts posts...I wish you all luck..I have met people and read views on here that changed my opinions on
many topics. I feel the majority of you are all wanting to move towards the same goal...we just sometimes have different transportation methods to
our final destination. This is in no way a thread to invoke drama...Im a happy decent fellow who needs a break from the truth.
Thanks for the great the site... to the admins and mods and the community. So long and thanks for all the fish.
