I for one happen to agree with you - to some extent.
But it's far too late to place blame.
Here’s the problem - IMO.
The USA has been sewing up a storm and now it’s reaping the dubious rewards.
The people have been falling back on the Government to take the responsibility out of their hands for so long, that guess what?
Any TRUE rebel with leadership abilities who isn’t afraid to stand up and sacrifice something in life doesn‘t exist anymore.
It‘s an extinct animal in the USA.
The very blood and character of the founding fathers of America - once strong and independent has been weakened and washed out and bred out and squashed with the evolution of Government Dependency.
Everyone sitting around ready to *go*! Ready to *fight*! Ready to *take a stand*!
But there isn’t one red blooded American left who’s got what it takes to stand up and be a lead them.
There are no true leaders left in America.
Who is there?
Half the populace of sheep with their heads buried in the clover of fast food and video games and ignorance, the other sheeple are informed and *awake* but neither have one important thing - A strong take charge shepherd.
What worried me is this.
IMO the USA is SO RIPE for any true leader - that when one does rear his head from the feed bucket and say NO MORE - the people of the USA better be damn sure to vet him out completely, to know exactly who he really is and what his agenda is with no doubts.
Otherwise they’ll be following the lead lemming to the cliff and the only one who’ll have a life vest is the first one over.
