I have read through post after post, thread after thread, some for, some against America. I'll speak of something I know about America. You, America,
have not lived up to the treaties and agreements that you made with Native Americans. You fight tooth and nail through the courts, then bitch and moan
when the evidence is not in favor of the majority of the descendants of those 'settlers'. Unwilling to give what you agreed to, yet buying goodwill
abroad at a thousand times what you owe the First Americans.This is the shame of a nation.
You came, took what was not yours and now your children are unwilling to even live up to the agreements your government put down in black and white.
And yet you want the world as a whole to show you respect as the land of the free and the home of the brave. Until you show the world that you will be
faithful to your promises to Native Peoples, you cannot expect them to believe you elsewhere.You lost respect when you first chose profit above right.
It has been a long road into darkness, and it has led to today.
What worth is your patriotism, if it is built on lies? Why should the world think that America is the 'good guy' when you cannot/will not fulfill
your word here at home. So put forth your answers in support of the "good America" that you try to impress on other lands. Or else fall silent in
front of the evidence of history. This nation was founded on deceit and aggression, on plunder for those with might. Let none speak untruth, America
has a past as takers, of willful aggressors. Why should other nations expect different now?
I am now as American as any, I fought for this nation, I have earned the right to speak, and this 'holier than thou' attitude is hypocrisy. This
nation is out for what it can get, and the devil take the hindermost. Your pious cries that no one understands the 'sacrifices' of America to make
the world a better place are no more than the whining of a spoiled child.
I see the and hear daily these cries of how pitiful it is that the world lacks sympathy for how much America tries to aid the world. How no one really
understands. I understand. I know that you are trying to buy the world's goodwill, all the while hiding your own diseased hands from view.
It is a fraud that pays for the food of another mans child to eat, all the while letting his own go hungry. It is a liar that preaches human rights,
and does not practice that at home. It is a charlatan that says they have answers to the crisis in another land, and turns a blind eye to their own
doorstep.You cannot police the world when you show corruption in your home place.
I post this not that I expect debate, for what is to debate? All of you know that while we spend millions on other nations, some of our own people go
hungry. You voted for those that cut federal spending for school lunches. It is your representatives in those hallowed halls that draw fat paychecks
and generous retirements, while there are people here in this land of plenty who put their children to bed without supper. You are the ones who vote
time and again along party lines to return the same a**holes to seats of power.
I expect no response here. I post this to the shame of America. There is little to discuss when it comes to such failures . You lack the will to hold
those who are YOUR voice in D.C. to any type of standard. But if you think the world at large fails to note your shallow behavior, you're wrong.
You cannot expect to have respect until you show yourselves worthy of it.
Why is this' rant' here? Because this is a conspiracy. A conspiracy of complacency. You are collectively too self absorbed to do more than vent at a
keyboard. You have your SUV at the curb, your microwave dinner ready, so go on and ignore this. It is the way of this nation to ignore the truth. It
is the way of those here to look for faults in others, all the while downplaying their own part in this tragic drama.
I will anger the majority with these words, but until the majority chose to WORK to clean house of the scoundrels, to right the injustices here at
home, then there is no use in decrying those in other nations that have no respect for the Ugly American. And wanting the truth from the government
will not come about until you chose to force it to.
Your endless search for the smoking gun of 9/11, for UFOs, for anything at all,is doomed to fail until you make the effort, the full time effort, to
be responsible citizens. And that means more than whittling away some free time jawing over points of contention here on a forum. It means work.It
means voting. It means emailing demands for constructive change. It means marching when you would rather be home resting.
Do you have it in you to change America? Because you are America.There will be no accountability until you hold yourselves accountable. There will be
no disclosure until you divest yourselves of secrets.
If you think me wrong, if you think there is excuse for the way our nation plies the waters of the world, by all means, speak. But hear the words from
those abroad as you do. We are no longer a well loved nation, and if you close your eyes to the reasons for this, we will fall. And the fall will be
