Maxmars, I always respected your words... But at what point is it "too late"?
It has just been feeling for several months now, that maybe it already is too late. Hey, much continued respect to you, if you think it is not.
Thank you kindly.
Part of me seems unwilling to accept that it is, in fact, too late. But it sure seems close to the point of no return.
The state of our political parties is what breaks my heart. Never before have we had such a totally corrupted group of people in place. They are so
effective at ensuring that only those they themselves select get a chance to lead us in any direction, right or wrong, it's pathetic.
Many of our representatives will feign total shock and surprise when the final economic death knell sounds, and I expect many of our fellow Americans
will ACTUALLY believe their 'innocence' in the matter.
The media is poison now, our children appear to be purposefully MADE to be increasingly detached from reality and dumber. They are made to believe
that Nickelodeon drivel about 'saving' the planet (as if WE could save it from THEM). The MTV crowd is busy figuring our how to mate with each
other, or how to be 'extreme' (what a life's goal). The commercial news peddlers are manufacturing interest with every 'editorial' they produce.
And the religious extremists in our own country are polarizing the nation into anything but the land of the free.
How can there be an escape from this quagmire of contrived garbage that distracts and deludes us, while satisfying our basest instincts to be fat,
dumb, and happy?
The truth is, there IS a solution. There is a way we can all restore the true path of the American experiment. But we must accept that, for the most
part, we are not ON it now! That consensus will be hard to achieve.
The Fed is the first offender on a list of offending institutions that are the playthings of those who do NOT serve the American people. It must me
eliminated - period.
As long as the Fed retains control of our economy, we are subject to their rancid ideologies. Aspiring politicians parties are 'purchased' by the
extortive technique of making certain the cost of running is prohibitive. Our political parties are little more than social clubs. We can't
realistically expect solutions from them. They have become a singular entity, and seem intent on 'deciding for' rather than 'representing the will
of' the people.
Disregard their noise. Establish a new FREE press, a press between friends, speak to each other, openly, without fear. Strengthen your social ties
to your immediate local community. Forget the Federal government; they do NOT represent US, (no pun intended). DO NOT accept unjust laws. A law
which is unjust is immoral and treason - at least in MY America. DO NOT succumb to fear of the government, fear leads to violence..., that is THEIR
tool, it CANNOT be ours. Speak to each other of America. What she is, DESPITE what 'they' are doing. If our representatives insist on dong it
their way, we have every right to disenfranchise them from our society by our own personal actions. DO the right thing for and to each other. Expect
justice, do not seize it. Justice will come. It ALWAYS does.
If you are accepting that their is a larger evil at work know this - EVIL cannot persist. It always consumes itself. Righteous civility and respect
can exist FOREVER. It's time to insist that we all become American citizens. Not media whores, not obsessive consumerists, not thrill seeking
monkeys. READ - please encourage READING!
... sorry ... I get carried away sometimes.
I'm as guilty of many of these weaknesses as many, so please understand, this represents part of an
internal dialog and not intended to be a sermon for you all.
