It has become all to apparent that our form of government is going down the tubes. Many people are blaming the socialist, the big corporations, and the NWO. Amazingly enough that is not the true cause only the effect of a power struggle from the vacuum that has arisen for the minds of the people.

We have learned that a democracy will only last until the people learn that they can give themselves all the money. We have a very similar situation here. Through entitlements and the promises of more, we willingly give up all of our freedoms and with that goes the power. We have cash for clunkers, the promise of free healthcare, medicare, medicaid, social security, welfare, unemployment, free education, and let's not forget the War on Terror. All of these programs are bankrupting the government.

The issue lies with the people. We vote the politicians into office because of their promises for more handouts, fewer taxes. Can anyone tell someone that won an election on the platform of tort reform, higher taxes and fewer programs? It just doesn't happen. We have whored ourselves out for more and more programs, and have given up our freedoms in the process. The problem lies with us and it is up to us to bring about change. Fortunately people appear to be waking up. But will they understand the root of the problem.

We should not be a nation of diversity. Diversity is one of the biggest lies Americans have ever bought into. We need the strength of unity. We need to educate the uniformed and let them know the true power lies in unity. We are Americans first and formost. We cannot continue to cling to the lie of diversity. We must cling to the truth of the American heritage. While not always pretty it is something that is part of each and every one of use. United we stand devided we fall.

What say you people?

Can't argue with you here. That's the weak point of democracy, as has been known for many centuries. Thus the term "bread and circuses", coined by the roman poet Juvenal almost 2,000 years ago in his work "Satire X". People will always vote for the fella who offers them the most handouts.

I don't know what, if anything, can be done about it. The mixture of greed and ignorance is a human constant (there's the unity you were talking about), and a cure for this condition has yet to be found. True, there are always those few who are aware enough to see that a constant pattern of voting for bread/circuses will surely end badly, but this minority will never be enough to carry the vote.

First thanks for the reply. It seems all of my recent threads go straight to the dead thread bin.

It is truly a shame to see all that so many have worked for and even given their lives for is going to go down the tubes. But in the end people will get what they deserve. I can only hope that those that are aware are just as prepared. I really do not think we have much longer before collapse.

Hey, no problemo. I'm familiar with "dead thread syndrome" myself.

Yeah, it's kind of a shame, but not unexpected. Change is always happening, for better or worse. It beats stagnation, right?

If nothing else, it'll be interesting to see what system we get when we come out the other side. Who knows? Maybe something good. Maybe something bad. Personally, I kinda see some sort of religious dictatorship in our future if/when we ever get past the corporocracy we're working on now. Wouldn't be my first choice, but then, they don't ask me for my opinion. Which is probably just as well, 'cause I certainly don't have the answers.

Whatever we see next will be interesting. I see a corporate monarchy which will quickly fail due to being consumer based. Then perhaps back to fuedalism and another dark age.
