Um, I understand your point and all...but, that same thing happens here.
Americans don't stand up and fight against the police. There are a small minority of people who do, but usually, they are die hard criminals who
don't care anyway so it doesn't matter to them if they kill a cop or an old lady.
Regardless, we have police abusing their authority all over the U.S. and nothing ever happens as a result. We seem to expect that the same justice
system which employs these officers are going to be the same justice system that will punish them for their wrongdoings. OOPS. Doesn't really work
that way, does it?
Case in point: If the article was actually valid, we had a bunch of gung ho militia boys that were going to "Exterminate the Zetas at the border."
And then a couple days later, the Zetas took over two ranches in Texas without so much as a hiccup from those really tough militia boys. (This is
assuming that the article was credible.) If that's the case...you could argue the same thing about the United States citizens. They do NOTHING.
They've become domesticated, pacified, and loyal slaves to a system which enforces a form of voluntary slavery that we simply call "Work." And
usually, if you're working all day, you don't have enough WILL to do anything other than go home, watch television, sit on your computer, and
complain about how corrupt the government and the world has become.
Americans don't do anything whatsoever to stand up for themselves, and I think the last great "attempt" to stand against the government was made by
a "CULT," at least, that's what the government called them. What were their names again? "The Branch Davidians."
In this country, when you stand up to speak your mind, you're labeled crazy and if that doesn't stick, they'll make up something that will. And
then EVERYONE believes it because its RIGHT THERE IN PRINT...So, for all intensive purposes, "IT MUST BE REAL."
So what happens is this...the American Government doesn't usually even have to do ANYTHING whatsoever to those who think outside of the box, because
society at large will punish them and knock them down to the point where fear of ostracization moves them right back into the tidy little herd before
something like what happened at the G20 even occurs. We are FAR more domesticated than the Canadians as a people. At least they actually TOOK a
Our Tea Partiers are a joke. Not because they are doing anything wrong or that their ideals are misplaced (some are), but, because the media has done
such a good job to make them appear as fringe lunatics that any impact that they COULD have had has been ripped right out from underneath them, and so
far, I haven't seen them influence ANYTHING worthy of changing the current direction. And, by the time the government gets through infiltrating
them, the tea partiers will ultimately end up supporting someone who was planted within them to run their organization so that the two party system
will stay on course and the illusion stays intact (we're all a bunch of fools). And then, as a consequence, we end up going right back to the same
divide and conquer routine that focuses on separation and partisanship.
There's already enough polarization within our own country to keep us busy forever. What makes you think that we'd have the solidarity to fight the
Canadians when we are all too busy fighting against ourselves?
Black vs White. Rich vs Poor. Hispanic vs Black. White vs Hispanic. Christian vs Muslim. Christian vs Christian. Democrat vs Republican.
Conservative vs liberal. Pro Choice vs Pro Life. Arizona vs California. Illegal Immigrants vs the Separatist. Christian vs Atheist. UFO believer
vs the skeptic. Debunker vs Believer. Left vs Right. Citizen vs Convict.
As long as these values in America persist, we couldn't fight and win a war against anyone, which is the reason why we are currently in two wars that
we HAVE NOT WON. Our military is stretched to the Max. Obama is trying to create his Obama youth movement to boost military involvement. There are
elements within the government trying to re-create the draft. Obama has also created his version of the Gestapo where citizens will act as the
military which will create further division and a rift of the citizen vs the State.
We are at war with ourselves and we're not even aware of it. And consequently, who's winning that war??? Ahhh yes, that's right. The guys that
continue to profit off of it. We are being jailed in higher numbers than ever before. We have 3% of the world's population and 30% of the world's
prison population. Its to the point where they make GREAT money by gluing the American taxpayer to the system. Most people within the prison system
now are NON-VIOLENT OFFENDERS. That means...you and me. And more and more laws are created to ensure that you have less and less rights which gives
them greater control and several new reasons to consider you a (jail-able) resource. Its profit vs the citizen. And who do you think will win that
All sources provided in the article are valid. Many sources are from government sites and research:
We are so screwed that we have absolutely no idea who the real enemy is, which is the very reason a thread like this could even exist.
So, I would assume that we might want to leave the whole idea of America going to war with Canada out of our imaginations for the time being until we
can first get along as equal and respected citizens and create solidarity amongst ourselves. And, I would suspect that the day that this happens, we
will have evolved enough past the idea of postulating war with fellow brothers and sisters from other countries and continents.
Just a thought.
