As I see it, America is lost. The people of this nation have forgotten their heritage. They have forgotten that the tree of liberty is sprinkled with
the blood of patriots. They have forgotten what liberty actually is, and have mistaken comfort and "safety" for freedom. They have closed their eyes
to the truth of their government - that it is populated by thieves, would-be dictators, and that those leaders hate and fear the people they are
supposed to represent.
Even here at ATS, which I have begun to believe is nothing more than a disinfo site, claims the slogan "Deny Ignorance", yet those who are here and
still asleep are in the majority and cling to ignorance like it was a security blanket.
Soon we will be deep into arguing about which potential president is the best. We'll have Obama on one side, and more than likely a lunatic on the
other side (pick one). THe American people will dutifully go to the poles and pick either a Dem or a Rep, not seeing that they are two sides of the
same coin, with the end game goal being the same.
We can hope for Ron Paul, but even if he was to be elected, seriously - do any of us think he would have a chance of changing the machine? No - he
would be shot dead within months, or made impotent by the conspiracy of politicians and media. He would at best serve one term, and then we'd go back
to business as usual, because you see - the people are the actual problem!
It's us friends - we have allowed all this crap to come into being. We have slowly allowed greedy and corrupt leaders to sell out everything that was
once good about America. It's our fault for allowing ourselves to be distracted by television and movies, news commentators who look like models and
say nothing but what they're spoon fed by their masters.
The evidence is everywhere. The house we live in, the car we drive, the job we go to are all decided for us at some level. The food we eat has no
nutritional value. The entertainments we subscribe to do not edify, they only further drain our ability to think. Even our churches, by and large, are
feeding us lies.
But nearly no one can see any of it. A few have begun to open their eyes, but cannot agree on what the problem is or what needs to be done to change
Maybe, aliens will come and help. Maybe Jesus will appear in the sky. Maybe. But let's suppose no one comes to our rescue. Then what? Do you really
want to go out with a whimper? Do you want to have your children and grandchildren become slaves to a system that regards them as fodder?
OWS gives me a glimmer of hope. Whether you agree with them or not is totally beside the point. The fact that a number of people are willing to stand
up, get arrested, and risk becoming laughing stocks for what they believe gives me hope. We need to get a whole lot madder folks. We need to be
willing to stand our ground no matter the risk. As Patrick Henry said - "Give me liberty or give me death." Be prepared to die for what this country
used to stand for (we can't even seem to decide on that). Are there millions willing to take that step? I want there to be.
But the truth is, there probably are not enough people aware of reality to make a real difference. The corruption runs so deep. We've been
indoctrinated our entire lives to believe that what matters is getting a good job and making someone else rich.
Many still believe our troops are fighting for our freedom. Are you one of them? Think about it. What did Iraq or Afghanistan do to us? What did the
North Vietnamese or the North Koreans do to us? What if the whole situation had been reversed? Suppose troops from somewhere had come here because
they hated the KKK? It would be the same. Don't kid yourself into thinking a small group of poorly trained "pilots" flew a pair of jumbo jets into
the towers. Didn't happen. Some still claim that there's WMD buried under Iraqi sand.
Where's Osama's body? Where's Jimmy Hoffa? Who really shot the Kennedy brothers? Who shot John Lennon and MLK?
The answers to most things are right in front of us, but we're trained to not notice and not believe. We've been trained very well over a very long
period of time.
Well, I'm running out of rant here. My apologies to the seeming randomness of this post. Sometimes I get an itch to write, and I don't like to fool
with editing and shaping. These are my thoughts tonight. Have at it.
