What the hell is going on in America, and why do we tolerate it? We have a Constitution and Bill of Rights, which are apparently open to review and revision with the election of every new President. The rule of law is now at the whim of either the Executive or Judicial Branch depending on your political affiliation and viewpoint.

WikiLeaks exposed the Press as an arm of the liberal agenda whose sole aim appears to be to foment unrest and dissatisfaction with our elected President. Who gave the Press the power and permission to attempt a journalistic assassination and coup? The Press historically always tried to report the news somewhat objectively not manufactured it.

Republican and Democrat politicians now represent their donors instead of the electorate. Lobbyists hold more sway over policy than state governors and legislation is so convoluted that only the attorneys and think tanks that manufacture legislation for Congress understand the ramifications and loopholes.

Our intelligence community is more focused on the American people than our enemies and surveillance of Americans has increased to insane levels since the G.W. Bush White House, the 9/11 attacks, the Patriot Act and the proliferation of Alphabet agencies.

The middle class has been targeted for elimination, Globalists realize that no matter how much you brain wash a nations children you can’t subvert a Constitutional Republic without taking the citizens rights especially guns away from the electorate. The UN was intended as a forum of nations to help defuse wars and find ways to help the third world, yet now is focused on Climate Change taxation and Agenda 21 regulations. The UN at its core is Socialist and believes that nations no longer need borders, culture or language. We need to seriously reconsider the UN as a fifth column within our borders.

As Americans we are possibly the last hope for a free world; we need to question TPTB and make peace with each other before we can take back and restore our nation. The last eight years have seen our country slowly being dismantled by Progressive politicians with their agendas, which was just Socialism, disguised as Globalism.

Any rational person at this time in our nations history should see the wisdom of curtailing immigration, reducing the social welfare burden imposed by eleven million illegals and repealing the Freedom Act, revising NAFTA and controlling our borders just to have a chance at survival.

It looks like we, as a nation, have reached the proverbial fork in the road. Do we stand for our traditional values or do we submit to the New World Order mindset that the elite so generously crafted? My analogy for the U.S. would be to live as a wolf in an increasingly dangerous world because sheep just seem to get slaughtered.

Interesting read, thanks for posting.

But when you read through all of that, that's fact is clear, it's over.

The U.S that people use to know is gone, and isn't coming back.

It's now a downward spiral to the end.

There is no fight to be had, as so many are just trying to get through the day and keep a roof over their heads.

The best people can do is maintain your family and friends and adjust accordingly.

Rome collapsed, why would we be any different.

Violations of the constitution have been ongoing since it was written. The frog pond temperature has been slowly rising for a long time, we are conditioned to (used to) this steam bath temperature.

Begin with the FISA ACT of the 70s, and end with the Affordable Care Act datahub.

I posted this in frustration, I realize that there is an intelligent and solid liberal base on ATS and I really want to hear from them. I hope people don't view this as an attack....it's more of a lament.

Agreed, how do we take back the offensive? We vote in people who promise change and we end up further down the path to destruction. I want a better world for my kids and I think that right now in history may be our last and only chance to change direction.

Its always been this way. You can't 'fix' it. You can teach your children the truth so they can at least make up their own mind, having been forewarned. You can be the example for them you want to see, live your life for them and your local community.

its not so important as people think to be wrapped up in all the politics, religion, news, whatever.

Its actually a lot simpler with children, they look up to you, will follow your lead. As far as how things will turn out none of us have control over that.

Seeing the truth of it is sufficient. Not becoming like them, or embracing them, not fighting against them neither, we play into their hands either way.

The options for helping people in many professions is one direction, biology, environmental sciences, etc. What matters in the end is how we behaved towards others.

Good response, intelligent, insightful and well reasoned.....so we should occupy the high moral ground and submit, you vote Sheep.
I offer Dylan Thomas:

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Both sides think they are raging against the dying of the light.

It is how they get them to fight each other.

True, this is no time for weak resolve, either you have a moral compass or you don't. The future doesn't look too bright if you watch the MSM nightly. I am disheartened by the lack of patriotism, moral outrage and lack of fighting spirit exhibited by many of todays Americans. I don't blame them, I blame what our country has become......and yet I chose to believe that there is still an American spirit that will rise to provocation.

Looks like you missed the point.

Both sides are ready to fight. Both sides think they are right. You just happen to be seeing things from one of the two sides.

From where I sit, after days of watching the MSM outlets, it appears to me that rather than having reached the fork in the road, we have, rather, hit the end of the road.

We have hit the end of the road in the sense that it is becoming ever more demonstrable that in reality, the US system of government is no longer genuinely capable of governing as a unitary body. Thus for example, we have now seen the 9th Circuit of the US Federal Courts take from the Presidency the authority to administer Immigration rules, notwithstanding the 1952 law which expressly reserves that function to the Executive Branch.

With the MSM we see that free and fair elections are all well and good as long as their chosen Democrat candidate wins the Presidency. Now they've launched an all out campaign to discredit the winner and to attempt to propel him toward impeachment and they appear to be working hand in hand with the foremost US Intelligence services to achieve this end.

As this is going on, we have the usual feckless crowd of sycophants in Congress wringing their hands about how to repeal and replace Obamacare, all the while doubtless stealing as much for their own coffers as humanely possible.

And of course, against this backdrop of chaos and conflict between the three branches of government, in the Democrat controlled Blue States of the Left Coast and the East Coast, visa holders from foreign states in which it is known that terrorist organizations recruit, equip and train armies of jihadi's are pouring into the US unabated and probably untracked, to be lost in the bowels of Sanctuary Cities, Counties and States.

We live at the end times of the Republic.

One can't 'submit' if one doesn't play.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

That good sir is exactly what I am doing.

Thank you to all that posted, I am beginning to detect a general consensus that this is the "end of the road." Anyone wish to hazard a guess on how the country needs to proceed or wish to speculate on how this all ends? Do we go out with a bang (think civil war) or is it a slow death of a thousand cuts.....or does the silent majority finally make itself heard outside of the ballot box?

Both sides cannot be right at the same time.... this is no time for weak resolve, either you have a moral compass or you don't. You will either fight for free will or serve the state.

What you offer is a false dichotomy based on what you think is right.

It doesn't mean you are right. Just means you are hopeful.

That hope seems to be making you call others to arms so, it seems like you hope that you can force your point of view on others. After all, that is what fighting is about, right?
