A star for you with this post. You sum up in a few sentences the awakening of many.
We are that generation destined to witness systemic failure. Our government and society have been able, over the years, to absorb and rebound from
isolated shocks to the system (war, financial failures, assassination of public figures etc.).
These days things are much different in that we see a breakdown across the whole system. Everything is failing.
My friend, this is what it looks like when a society totally disintegrates. This is the point where the system becomes so broken that repair is nigh
impossible and that should scare the hell out of anyone paying attention.
I know that I will catch a lot of "boo's" over what I'm about to say but so be it. I see only one hope to turn things around and that hope rests
on the person of Ron Paul. He is the only person that I see or have seen with the potential to bring us all together toward a common goal of radical
change (boy, I never thought that I'd live to see the day when the return to ways that worked would be viewed as radical).
I make it sound as though I believe that RP can do no wrong and that I am in total agreement with every idea he has. Not so. In fact, there are many
areas where I totally disagree with Dr. Paul. But, I have faith that he has enough of it right to get us back on the right path.
The way I see it we have this one last chance to turn things around and God help us if we miss this last opportunity. These are dark days we live in.
The whole world is slipping into darkness. It may appear conceited to say this but I'm of the mind that the USA is the glue that has held the world
together for a good many years and that on top of how rotten we've been. I'm afraid that if we go we take the world with us.
I hear Israel continually crabbing about its "right to exist" to which I say BULLSH'T. No nation, including the USA, has an inherent right to
exist. We earn our right to exist every day. There is no magical finish line you cross where you can claim a perpetual place at the table. Military
might is a piss poor substitute for being morally right.
We've lost our way and RP is our last hope. The weight of the world rests on the shoulders of the next president. I don't know how any man or woman
could want the job but thankfully we have one man with the heart and soul to take the job on. I hope America makes the right choice this time around
because I don't think there's going to a "next time" unless they do.
