Look at us, we have absolutly no industry or production. All the factories are moving away. Industry is what built America to what it is today, not a bunch of bumbling fashion designers.
We are relying on the world as our colonies to produce everything we need. We must become self sufficient and increase our industry and production. Let's stop relying on other countries and pick up our own slack. Instead of spending our money on hollywood and clothes, we need to spend our money on increasing our infrastructure and industry.
All elections are a game of musical chairs between the two parties. It's almost a dictatorship or an oligarchy. These two groups OWN our government, and our lives.

You guys think it's odd of me to say somthing like this, but that's not the oddest part. The oddest part is that I am a moderate-conservative, and I am a member of the military. I pledged to protect America, and the people who reside there. I also pledged to obey the officers appointed over me, but I'm not sure that counts if they are commiting felonous or treasonous acts, does it? Anyway, I pledged to protect our freedom, and will do so, no matter what the cost.(great, now I'm probably being watched by the government)
Does anyone agree? Anyone think I'm a raving lunatic?

To the soldier above and all active service people: You took a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies,foreign and DOMESTIC...and if you are facing a choice of obeying an order that you know in your CONSCIENCE is against th intent of the founding fathers and the Constitution the the choice is clear: you MUST disobey the orders and try to form alliances with other loyal soldiers to find a way to stop the treasonous actions of those above you. If you blindly follow orders and kill fellow citizens for fighting for what is right, then you will be no better than the Nazi guards who slaughtered human beings for no reason other than' following orders'. You are NOT required to follow illegal orders and only YOU can, by your individual conscience, decide what is an ilegal order. If it offends your sensibilities and gives you reason to believe that it is immoral or unConstitutional then the choice is clear. I do not envy any service member these days..you will PROBABLY be faced with this terrible dilemma in your term of service and better to be prepared mentaly and emotionaly now before you are in a situation that will not allow myou the time to make a thoughtful decision. I hope you make the right choice..I would HATE to see you in the sights of my weapon as an enemy when we should be brothers in arms against the enemy. The enemy now is not clear..you cannot trust the President anymore and your officers may be unable to resist the orders given them so be prepared for the most difficult times ever just around the corner. Thank you for your service to our country and God Bless you.
