It's obvious. We have no control over anything on this planet as citizens besides the few people we touch daily within our respected circles. If the
government continues to step out of line, lying, and manipulating the world for the benefit of the rich.. There is nothing we can do! We just sit in
our computer chairs and be like wow that blows my mind that the government would do that.
I was talking to my friends tonight about politics and mentioned that I see us going to war with Iran in the near future and he said, "yeah right man
if the government did that 98% of the people would be against it" and my other friend said "wait a minute, they already are?". And yet what is
being done to stop this from happening in the future, what is being done to investigate our leaders? why does the system of checks and balances leave
out the common people?
It is my personal belief that there simply is nothing we can do. as citizens we only have the guns and power that is given to us by the government. If
someone were stupid enough to think they could overthrow the rich in power by murder then they would be swiftly met at their front door by the
FBI/ARMY/Alot of weaponry and the accusation that you are a terrorist, insane, and an espionage, and would never see the light of day. (so I am really
really not emphasizing full scale civil war!). In fact my point really is we can't have a civil war because after the first one they realized wow we
need to turn this around and really have control of the country, and pay all of our attention to washington. Therefor, if a war were waged it would
not be a civil war, but in fact a revolutionary war. One in which it is the civilian vs. the government (the same government in which we continue to
see millions and millions of dollars being poured into every year.) If the cause was great enough and people wanted to donate to the opposite side of
the government we wouldn't even break 2 million for weaponry. So what happens if the government goes too far?
The world hates the US. For many reasons, and for one I will mention Wal-Mart. All Americans in their lifetime (exaggurating) get the brilliant idea
at one point in their life to go to wal-mart at 2 am because it sounds like a good idea. Whether you have something you NEED or not, you go and walk
through corporate America.
Now, we are trying to bring Our Wal-mart to countries with barely a convenient store. It is the reason why we can spend trillions of dollars that we
don't have and not get hurt in the end. All major business is owned by another major business, and at the top of the ladder is someone with the
biggest hand in the government. If we can open up American stores all over the world, we are reaping the benefits of EVERYONE's money. (sickening
ANYWAYS... The world hates us because of what our government does and they completely disagree with it. Guess what "other countries"? We disagree
too! but our voice isn't heard, even on the presidential elections!
We could never stop America even if the government woke up one day and decided to be communist. Isn't that a terrifying thought? Especially after
America dominates all of these other countries and has the ability to affect the entire globe?
(sorry if this is taken for rambling but I believe there is some serious deep thought behind my way of thinking and you can go ahead and disagree or
agree b/c I know what I believe and I know the world only as I see it)
