This video gave me goosebumps. I hope REAL change is around the corner. Why do you think it is that no one ha risen up yet. Are we all conditioned by fear? We ignore threatening truths so we can go on with our lives?

Dont mind me saying this, please, but im from Europe, Holland to be exact, and yes, almost everyone in Europe thinks Americans are just plain simple.

Just look at some european ATS-like boards for example.
Everyone is far more open-minded and as matter of detail almost everyone is begging for you guys to wake the f3ck up and open your eyes.

You can even see it here on ATS. European members are more open-minded. And not just slighlty more, no, way more.

What i think is Patriotism gets in the way with you waking up.
Almost every single American is to big of a patriot to really believe what terrible things your country has done to this planet and the human race.


Please wake up guys, we are waiting for you, we cant change this #hole we call Earth without you!

Starred and flagged friend. APATHY is what has allowed us to reach this stage. We are one step away from full blown FASCISM, and many folks, even on this very site, are STILL apathetic to it all. Sadly enough, when they have taken EVERYTHING from us, that will likely be the time that everyone wakes up, and it may be too late at that stage.

I'm sure you will get the usual dose of gov-guys and excusists showing up on this thread, reminding us how "paranoid we all are", but don't let them discourage you from putting the truth out there. We have a fight ahead of us like nothing in the past couple of hundred years...

Well here in America we have 90% of our people getting their basis on reality and current events from news stations like fox news and CNN. I don't know how bad the propaganda machine is over there but its up and running here. I try open up minds everyday here, Boston's pretty bad in that respect, even if its starting up a conversation with a stranger. I believe an open mind is essential for human development.

It is up and running over here in Europe too, more than ever, but we just dont buy it and we dont let our opinions being made up by others. Especially not by celebs and media.We think for ourselves. And so should you guys. Its really not that hard ya know

For example, if Oprah tells you guys tomorrow McDonalds makes bad food, then McDonalds would go bankrupt within a week.

Think for yourselves people, come on!

Starred and Flagged!

I've tried informing people at work, school and home about the corporate government's nefarious deeds. Unfortunately, I've only gotten like two of my friends to actually listen to what I've got to say. I don't know what it's going to take to make the masses wake up. I just hope it's not something catastrophic.

Well, yes I agree with you, but sometimes it takes something of that nature to wake some people up. Some feel it`s better to bury their head in the sand(the you can`t see me if I can`t see you logic) and hope they will be overlooked by the dangers that surround them. Have you ever noticed, when you confront people like that, how they, if they don`t clam up altogether, they strike back at you like a snake on the defensive. That`s because your interfering with their guarded reality of what they want to believe. It always takes something very bad to happen to their little world to open their eyes. And it`s sad it has to happen that way.

i watched this video like 5 times today and sent it to a few relatives, friends, ect. I actually got a lot of response! A couple of people who i never thought would be into this stuff were out raged. They had no clue that stuff like this was going on behind the scenes. I guess ill keep spreading the word!

The Last "terrorist"(nwo) attack on American soil, was almost 7 years ago how is it possible for the government to still override the constitution with this Act. The Act was just updated, and now internet tapping is being brought in..soo is this a permanent change..... cuse any Country that is at peace can technically do the same thing on the claim that terrorists "could" attack. Im not even an American and this pisses me off alot. the constituition will not exist in the next year or few years if this keeps up. With the Economy on the decline and war with iran imminent, and martial law rumored, the NWO will have what they need to secure america 100%. Is there not a champion of the people , besides ron paul? When the day comes when the streets of american cities swarm with military, it will indeed be too late to do anything... I fear for the american people and the rest of the world. How many people do think that live in America actually know what is going on , instead of the simple high gas prices, and the american dollar on a low. Freedom doesn't exist its an illusion covered in a cloud of, tv , movies, video games and other artificial realities. good call on the europeans telling america to wake up. But lots of american members on this site know what is going on. Do we just keep posting on here until the day when it ends, not doing anything, or do we wait for something to escalate a bit more to take action. damn new world order. ARGGG

Unfortunately you are right. Something awful has to occur in order for the majority of people to snap out of it in the fastest way possible. But again, I just hope that we don't get into that situation and something else occurs. Something that will hopefully not be too grim.



TheBadge: Wow, way to go!
You should of gotten some of your friends to join your mini-protest.




Edit to add:

Is there not a champion of the people , besides ron paul?


America's last hope is Ralph Nader, he shares the same views of Ron Paul when it comes to shrinking the government's power and bringing power to the citizens once again. But I just hope people can get passed the things MSM has been blabbering about him. Talking about how he's an elitist and praises communism. It's kinda like what MSM has done to taint Dr. Paul's philosophies, calling him "anti-government" or "anarchist". So yeah, hopefully people will do some research on Nader, cause he's done alot for the country and most people don't know that.

Great point in that video.

Isn't it funny how the laws that are there to protect us, that never get abused are forgotten about by the generation that never had a reason to implement them.

The generations that wrote these laws in stone, and made it so difficult to tamper with them, and put so much effort and deep thought in to the writing and wording of these laws, they are gone now.
Who is left? The children of that generation, who were not educated on the value and brilliance of the greatest guarantees of peoples freedoms.

Its true what they say you know. "you don't know what you've got till its gone"

Makes me wonder, when its all said and done and the next generation has spilled there most precious blood, when the they have routed all the moral degenerates from the system, and found out all the crooks and criminals that held the highest points of office... do you think they will write the new bill of rights any differently? do you think there is a better way to word it?

Its funny that its our ignorance that damns us

As much as I admire and have done what you have ...

I gotta tell you, ... unless you work at a kick ass place.. Doing that at work is just going to get you unemployed.

The only hope for America.. and the world..

Lies not with Ron Paul, Ralph Nader, Dennis Kucinich, Jessie Ventura... or any other one single person.

The fact that we are waiting for a leader to come through the shadows on the wall of the cave proves that we are not worth saving.

en.wikipedia.org...

---

It is up to YOU.

It is up to ME.

It is up to US.

BE the change you wish to see...

We change the world one person at a time...start with yourself. It is the only way it can be done.


Have hope though... let it fuel your fire.

It is happening.. faster and faster.

More are aware now then were five years ago...Soon ... Double will be aware Tomorrow then were aware Yesterday.

Then we will win...

pretty sure its from a boston legal episode

Pathetic...

A BOSTON LEGAL episode has you losing control of your bladder.

3000 plus people died because you bleeding heart, left wing, socialists who believe that GWB is evil incarnate forced the FBI to NOT be able to communicate with the CIA ( the FORD Comission, look it up. The person who created the stupid law sat on the 9/11 comission.)

The U.S is not the source of all evil. GWB is neither evil nor stupid. He took a stand and no attackes have occured on U.S soil since 9/11.

11 million people have been freed from rape rooms, acid vats and women have seen that they no longer must fear 200 lashes after being gang raped.

600,000 Iraqis have NOT died in the war. Many have though and that is a tragedy. But look at what happened after U.S occupation of Japan and Germany. Let me guess... we were evil occupiers then too, right?

Wake Up? You are right. You need to wake up and thank whatever diety you worship that the U.S put a line in the sand and said "It stops here."
