As we approach the date of December 21st 2012 we are starting to see some things that are rather disturbing. These things should be disturbing
regardless if you are a believer in the date or a non believer because turmoil on the planet between humans, humans and nature and the jump in science
has never been this heated in any period of time since anyone reading this thread has been alive besides World War II.
The United States has been slowly but surely increasing it's power in both military might and assets grabbing since the initial strike on Iraq that
was largely sold as a way to protect innocents from weapons of mass destruction. Since that day, we have learned that there was never any credible
intelligence that led to that conclusion and the act of ware we waged was unjust and not allowed by our Constitution.
From there, we devolved to the events of 9/11 and while I do not intend this thought or thread to be devoted to this subject you have to admit that no
matter what side of the fence you are on, there are some very convenient outcomes to 9/11 that profits the government and subjugates the population at
the same time.
Take what it that you will but you must understand that this event birthed the Patriot Act
us all of our basic freedoms that have been afforded us since the inception of our country. This was done on the basis of fear, manipulation and
falsehoods and the law passed without the public blinking an eye in the wake of public outrage for revenge on the attacks on our country.
Since that time, The United States has become a police state, we have policeman taking down 9 year old girls with tazors, assaulting people in
wheelchairs, macing students in peaceable protests, becoming livid and forceful when a video camera is in sight and arresting and incarcerating
without probably cause with impunity, leaving the citizen to pay thousands of dollars to pay for a defense for a non crime and when they are found
innocent, there is no punishment to the officer in question.
What exactly have we become here, in this country? I remember watching Pearl Harbor with my wife years ago and I remember crying because I applauded
heroes and those that risked there life to protect freedom and liberty and it was beautiful. What are we now? You have to ask yourself this question
as it pertains to our morals and our basic outline of what this country should be.
We were never meant to create or start pre-emptive wars, we were only meant to protect our borders and those that are in VERY close alignment with our
country as it pertains to National Security. We are not even world policing right now, we are actively plotting and executing invasion and take overs
of countries. What in the hell are we doing?
The courts in this country, the laws, the fines, the persecution have become normal. Water your grass on this day, wear you seat belt, Don't have a
couple chickens in the back yard in a coup, Don't collect rain water, register your guns with fifteen different departments before you buy it, if you
will even be able to own one in a couple years. The writing is on the wall and what it says is that freedom is no longer the basis of our nation or
society that we live in.
Some of you will disagree and say that we are the pinnacle of creation and if I don't like it go live somewhere else. To that, I would say, I thumb
my nose at you sir, you and your comrades. We have adopted a policy of totalitarianism in our foreign and domestic ventures and it is pushing forward
at a very fast rate. We no longer live by the document our country was founded on, we now live by corporate charity and there goons who control
congress with there donations, endorsements and back alley deals.
What a shame that we have become this, I often think how the average Roman citizen felt when they witnessed the collapse of there empire, everything
they thought they were, everything they thought they could be, I think about this and I can't help but think that they probably felt the same way I
do, right now.
