Blaine91555, your story really touched me.
Folks need to know not only your story, but also need to understand that this has happened to a LOT of people.
100 years ago and before in the US, if you had land and built a house, it was YOURS! Today, it can be taken just to generate more tax MONEY!
I love freedom and democracy. Unfortunately, the US is no longer the leader of the free world, we no longer have a democratic system.
If a person works for and you pay their wages, and they act like the US government - they'd be fired.
It is funny how you don't see "We the People" anymore.
You see by the 1000's, maybe millions, that have been screwed like this by the government and nothing is ever done. Why? They have control of the
people and have had it for a long time. It was SUPPOSED to be the people controlling the governement.
Yes there a good things to focus on, but it is getting harder when they are squeezing us tighter and tighter.
We are becoming something shameful. We own nothing - not the land, not our homes, not even the money we make. The middle class are being pushed down.
I make a middle class inclome and it is still paycheck to paycheck. What happened????
Again, that is why I rent. I own my soul and my memories and that is all I consider mine. I work to feed my family and give times of fun and pleasure
to my kids.
They haven't passed a law yet to take my soul, but give them time - they'll take that from you too.
About being a coward though, I disagree. It is not that we are cowards, it is that we know that no matter what we do, we cannot stop it. Many have
tried and failed.
The people were supposed to be stronger than the government so we could overthrow them if need be, but since about 80 years ago or more, the
government became stronger than the people through verious means.
Bravery is not stupidity. Even if we got all the willing people together, we would be wiped out without even making a dent. We would be labelled
terrorists, showcased on the news, become hated by our own people and died without even hurting the ststem. If fact, it would probably help them gain
At least we know why empires rise and then fall. You can only take so much till theres nothing left.
But hey, at least the rich are happy right? They will die and be buried in a fancy casket and then forgotten.
It is pretty bad when you can say that you can go to another country and have more freedom than the US. There are many places where you can buy land
and a home and it actually IS yours.
I better stop now. This is really making me think negatively, but it is sooooo bad now - I can't stand this BS!!!!!
When they can TAKE what you own and/or built without JUST (or any) compensation, there is a REAL problem.
