Americans have been absolutely milked by lying officials waging phony wars designed to make the top 1% even richer while everyone else pays.
And the bailout, plus the extra $650 billion handed over silently before the $700 billion + $150 billion earmarks was approved, has been the last slap
in the face before the neck-lock is applied.
Everybody but the very rich is paying already. Property, shares, investments are mostly losing value. Jobs are being cut. Funding for the essential
services that keep a society healthy are being cut. And the poorest are not even referred to in the speeches of any candidate.
Back when I was a kid, America was proud of the way it took care of all of her citizens. And the decreases in education standards and general caring
have not saved anyone money. Americans still pay as much per head for health and education and pensions as other countries in which people are far
better cared for. The difference is the corporations who accept money to provide services, but then make every effort to avoid providing them. They
are growing fat at the expense of the ordinary worker.
It was once believed that a civilization can be judged by the care it takes of its most helpless. But "the system" preaches fear and apathy instead
of the empathy, and few Christians remember Jesus' words, "Whatsoever you do for the least of these, my children, you do also unto me."
Taxes can't be fought by fighting taxes. We have to stop the stupidity that causes them, otherwise taxes are inevitable. We have to stop paying for
the liars' wars. We have to stop paying all the healthcare money to uncaring health insurers and greedy pharmaceutical (poison) manufacturers.
At the moment most of us are trapped in a purpose-built web of fear, with the number of others people care deeply about decreasing day by day.
This is a trap. This is how they rob the people of power. The government don't care who have guns, because they can pick off little groups one at a
time in this climate, with no-one coming to the aid of another. And no amount of arms can stop them putting extra fluoride in your water, microwaving
you from a distance, or lobbing a missile through your window to cause a fake meth lab explosion.
The only way to stand up for our rights and protect the countries we love is to start loving each other. Everything you do for a person in need, every
smile you give a stranger, is an act of defiance to all that is evil in this world.
The most revolutionary act of all is to care for a stranger in need.
If there is a Jesus, who will one day ask you, "When I was hungry, did you give me food? When I was thirsty, did you give me drink?" what are you
going to say?
