And when I say us, I mean "us, the average citizen"
This will not be a long post with external quotes and links because this is my opinion only, although I do hope it starts a reasonable discussion.
We, "the little people" learn NOTHING from the past or if we do we are do consumed by our constant, burning desire to increase our level of comfort
and entertainment, regardless of how much debt we put ourselves in, after all, we cant have the neighbor getting a bigger plasma than we have.
I have to say this though because it bugs the hell out of me, to no end.
The public, for the most part, is falling victim to a feint. While we are being distracted by the latest in entertainment OR the next so called
potential terrorist attack, the people in charge (and i use that term loosely) are laughing as they add another knot to the hangmens noose.
For example(s) the upgraded airport security screenings, the wonderful, pre-recorded messages from our DHS savior at Walmart checkouts, the ever
tightening requirements to just renewing your drivers license, the DOZENS of security cameras that we pass each day, as we go about our everyday
affairs, the introduction of military AND non-military security forces patrolling our cities, (Katrina, Rita and Ike) the supreme court ruling
allowing, not only the Govt to take your land but also Corporations (under eminent domain) and now im seeing videos that people have made, showing
police watchtowers being placed at Walmarts and along the highways.
I really could go on and on but all one needs to do is reference the history of the rise of Authoritarian Governments and draw the comparisons, to see
what im talking about.
I really cannot understand how anyone that was raised during the cold war era could allow yourselves to fall victim to the SAME SH** that we were told
that we were fighting for, against the "Communists"
All of us, ESPECIALLY the Korean and Viet Nam Vets should be raising hell, since it was you guys that gave so much to fight against the policies that
are now being indoctrinated in the country that you fought FOR.
