Ok, so I've been doing some heavy duty thinking here lately, as well I'm sure most of you have.
What amazes me about our country is that none of our politicians them seem to know their history. American history or world history. Except for maybe
Ron Paul. But he's the only one.
Why don't we require our politicians to be history majors?? Most are just power hungry politicians who want their piece of fame and glory. They
don't give a rat's behind about what happens to our country...they just want in on the booty and the riches.
Why, as Americans, do we allow this to happen? Why do we vote for them? Why, why, why, why, WHY?? Why don't we vote for people who actually
understand the world, instead of those people who want to control the world???
Our entire economy (and possibly our country) is collapsing all around us, and our political leaders are all acting as if this is so unexpected!! Were
NONE of our politicians ever required to take a world history, or world civilization course? Or have they ever studied up on past empires? Because if
they had, I think they would see that our problems in America are NOT unique to a country such as ours. They are not new. They are not even
unexpected!! Not if you know your history.
Because this...what is happening to our country right now...this is what happens when giant empires become too big, and too corrupt to take care of
themselves: they collapse.
I seriously, seriously, seriously think we are in the process of collapsing. I mean, I've thought this for years, but now, I really, really see it!
And what are they doing about it? Nothing! Keep the status quo! They're still trying to do the whole democrat/republican, stump speeches, political
rhetoric. All of them. But none of them are stating the obvious: We are headed towards collapse.
Ok, I am not a history major, but from what I did learn in history, I remember that large empires (and I think we could easily be called an empire,
since we have over 100 military bases in foreign countries) fail when greed overtakes them. They keep pushing for more and more, when they can't even
handle what they've already got. Then, it all comes collapsing down.
We need to get a council of historians or something up there to explain to our dumb politicians what is right infront of their eyes....our country is
collapsing, and why. And then they need to explain it to the people. Because if you don't understand the past, or if you don't learn from the past,
or if you don't know what happened in the past, you are doomed to repeat the past.
Why are we so stupid that we can't see what's happening to us??? Maybe it's not stupidity, but denial?? I have no idea.
