First off, let me say this isn't really a rant. It's more of a plea, I guess.
It's no secret that the political forums have largely degenerated into a veritable cesspool of mockery, vitriol and rhetoric that makes most attempts
at civil, intelligent discussion an impossible feat. This comes from both of the political parties that have somehow decided that they are important
enough to represent the entirety of a nation full of people who possess their own opinions, desires, viewpoints...and voices with which to express
The current situation does in fact warrant a need to pick a side, I won't argue that. But the need to choose our battles more wisely going forward is
far greater, because the only sides that will (or ever should) really matter are the will of the American people as a collective, unified nation
versus the will of those who seek to subvert and enslave the American people...as they have since far longer than most of us have been alive.
The common denominator among all of us; both our greatest threat and our greatest strength, is that we are all becoming...like it or not...painfully
aware that there is something insidious going on within our government and that something is far from a recent development. We, as a nation of people
from all walks of life, have been lied to and had information withheld from us that has directly impacted the lives of every single woman, man and
child in this country, whether we realize it yet or not.
The moment that you give another person or entity the power to feed you is the moment that you also give them the power to control you. No one is
"free" in this country right now. Anything the banks don't own under the guise of affording the unwashed masses the opportunity to own it, the
government owns. People pay taxes on their own property under duress every year.
Ditto their vehicles and everything else of value...including the money they make for forty or more hours they spend every week working so someone
else can make more money off their effort and time. And if people refuse to submit, they can lose everything they think they own. This is a fact.
It is also a fact that some of these people responsible for the subversion of our free will were placed in positions of power by none other than we,
the People, and in that capacity we are now being shown why our stubborn drive to compete with one another rather than address the issues of one
nation AS one nation has landed us in a situation where idiocies such as how many jacked up things have members of one party done compared to the
opposing party seem more important than the fact that both parties seem to be engaged in activities that are diametrically opposed to the interests of
the American people as a whole.
The simple fact is we, the People have been lied to by those whom we willfully allowed to wield power over us, when the opposite should actually be
true. And the only way to turn this around is to rise up as one nation, put aside our differences...no matter what they may be...and hold those
responsible to task. The only way past this division which continues to serve their interests rather than ours is to change the way each and every one
of us reacts to each other.
And the only solution I see is actually a very simple one. Anyone who has ever followed a news story about a tornado or hurricane decimating an entire
town has seen the seemingly unlimited capacity of people to put aside their differences and work side by side to help that devastated community to
recover and rebuild. To rise up together and fix what needs to be fixed. They might go back to hating one another the next day, but for that moment in
time, the common goal of helping these people eclipses everything else.
If we've been lied to, we as a nation of people need the truth. It doesn't matter if that truth hurts. We need it. And we need to be supportive of
each other while we seek it...together. It doesn't matter if those responsible are one party or the other, or one color or gender or religion or any
of the other things they use to divide us, to keep us from coming together and comparing notes.
It doesn't matter how many things this side or that side might appear to have on its karmic scorecard. It doesn't matter if aliens are real or not,
or if conspiracy theorists are right or wrong, or if we as a nation of people elected a wolf in sheep's clothing or ALMOST elected one...none of that
extraneous sh!t matters one whit.
The only thing that matters...The. Only. Thing...is that we, as a nation of people, have been lied to, abused, misled and mistreated. And we, as a
nation of people deserve to be given the truth. And now more than ever, we need to come together and demand that truth.
We need to stop the endless baiting and jabbing and keeping score on each other. We need to resist the temptation of kicking people with opposing
views when they are down. We need to build each other up, buffer each other, and come together as one against the corruption within our government.
And most important of all, we need to all be adults and accept that there may indeed be more negative tallies on one political scoreboard than another
but it doesn't matter, because Americans should always be Americans first. Anyone who claims to be a "patriot", yet does nothing but belittle and
harangue those who exercise the very basic constitutional and Universal right to choose for themselves whom to follow and what to believe is the very
lowest form of hypocrite. Following anyone at all other than those who represent the common interests of our nation as a whole is intrinsically
The American people deserve answers. All of us. Even if we've made errors in judgement, or choose to remain loyal to beliefs that contradict those of
others. Using my example of one community rising up as one force, we need to start behaving in a similar fashion.
I don't personally care if, in the end, my perceived version of the truth is not the accurate one. I want the actual truth, warts and all. My utter
lack of political affiliation at all probably drives this urge a bit harder, because be it ego or perceived dignity or whatever creates these
phenomena where people go so far in defending their side that they don't mind if they sound completely unhinged in the process.
If other, like minded individuals are interested in having a productive discussion about the future of we, the People, as a unified nation, please
feel free to sound off. We've got options, no matter how dismal things may appear to be.
Those who prefer to remain stubbornly adhered to the present paradigm; while I respect your right to your opinion no matter how much I happen to
disagree with it, I will not reply if your opinion appears to be voiced entirely with the intent to push some political agenda either way. That is
precisely the type of behavior that has created our current situation.
Bottom line, we have the right to make decisions for ourselves, but those choices must be made when we have been given the entire truth by our
government. Until that happens, we will continue to be enslaved, and it won't matter much what our political slant...or lack thereof...happens to be.
The knee jerk tendency here is to expect an overwhelmingly negative response to this post. I can't even definitively articulate a reason for this,
other thangut feeling. But goddammit, I will probably never...
