It's so difficult to live in a country where you can't trust anyone, not even your neighbor in fear that he may be a spook, or to sit in your living room in fear of the walls having ears. Can't trust the media or the politicians to deliver the truth, so who do you trust? Even if you mind your own business, the question will still creep into your life eventually. No matter how big the pasture, the sheep are sheared eventually. The illusion of freedom: Now that's true evil.

It's not going to happen and if it does, it will be years from now.
People are too distracted and brain washed by the MSM to even know what's really going on. They may be unhappy with the current administration, but you don't see any one doing anything about it. You don't see protests in the streets, no marches on Washington. Most still defend the police and their tactics, because they've been fooled in to believing the cops need tanks, automatic weapons and the right to use whatever force they like, even if it's handcuffing a teenager for talking back to a teacher.
No, America is not going to stand up any time soon. Until something rips us away from our TVs, with it's hundreds of channels blaring mind numbing "entertainment", until we can't get 24/7 fast food and something grabs us by the neck and shakes us awake, America is going to sit and take it. We might bitch and grumble, but DO anything?
Not gonna happen. I hate to have this attitude, but when I look around, all I see are fat, lazy people bitching from their couches, with their hand out waiting for someone to hand them another beer and some nachos.
