Firstly, I am not from America.
However, I have been on Ats for some time, and reading all the posts, and news regarding the state of affairs in the US, I have to ask this question.
I see many people, moaning and groaning about America, and what it has become. I see them complaining about the economic state it is in, the
healthcare system, the way the people are oppressed.
I see honest people, feeling like their rights are being taken away from them. Yet, I also see people just complaining, and nothing being done about
it. Yes, they can have petitions, and little rallies in the park raising their voices about some of these matters. However, I don't feel this will
get them anywhere.
Sometimes, actions speak louder than words.
Now, I am not one for violence, or indeed violent protests, or even wars. Sometimes I just get the feeling that there is no other way. Of course I
might be wrong, but this is just the feeling I am getting. Too many people complaining, and not doing anything.
Is it time for a revolution in America? Not a peaceful one, but an uprising of the masses, against their corrupt government. Maybe it is, or maybe it
has not come to that point yet. Time will tell. I just fear, that once the time arrives, it might be too late.
Now, I have seen my fair share of violent uprisings, and attempts to correct an oppressive government. And guess what? It worked. Naturally all
situations are not the same, and should be approached differently.
However, the longer people sit around idly, seeing all the wrongs, complaining about it, yet, doing nothing about it, the harder it will become to do
anything before it is too late.
There is an old saying "When preparing for peace, prepare for war". Although it is sad, that we as a civilization has come to a point where war is
sometimes necessary, it is true. History tells us so.
