Younger friends of mine do not understand why I’m freaking out over current events. They consider it “normal”.
Perpetual war…Wall Street bailouts…rampant unemployment…rich vs. poor gap reaching preposterous levels…sky rocketing inflation despite government numbers stating there is no inflation…blatantly illegal actions taken by elites with absolutely no repercussions forthcoming.
Damn it! This is NOT normal.
I simply want to know how in the heck we reached this point and within a breathtakingly short span of time in relation to our history? Do you think we can ever go back and restore our honor?

It's we the people! We the people are the only ones to blame for letting America come to this. If you don't like America the way it is then do something to change it.

1) "War is cool! Support the troops! Remember 9/11! We gotta be tough, or the terrorists / russians / chinese will win!"
2) "Deregulate everything, let the free market decide!"
3) "Medicare? That's SOCIALISM!!!! We need that money to give welfare to the military-industrial complex!"
"Can't be happening in America?" This is just hte logical conclusion of every American policy since the 1880's, compounded by the psychosis of blind ignorance that has always been so fashionable among the majority of America's population.
