I would like to have a broad, constructive discussion regarding the downfall of the U.S., politically, economically and socially.
I'm not interested in partisan bicker; it's clear that both parties are on the same team and if you haven't come to that realization yet, please
don't participate as you lack the knowledge to contribute anything useful.
My question is this; at one time, any attack on the Constitution would have politicians screaming bloody murder. Any Senate bill that even hinted at a
possible invasion of privacy would surly get shot down. So where are "those" politicians? Are there any good guys left who haven't fallen
for the whole "terrorist" threat mantra?
We have the Obama Justice Department suing states simply because they want to keep the voter rolls clean by having voter ID laws. This isn't new!
I'm from Michigan and I had to present my Voter ID card when I voted! After the fiasco of 2008 with ACORN, you would think the republicans would be
watching this election even closer. The fact that Holder doesn't want states making an effort to hold clean elections should have Mitt Romney using
that to his advantage, but he won't say a word. I'm not singling out democrats here...they just happen to be the ones in the White House and they
are the ones being backed by ACORN in 2008...it's not partisan, just the facts. If it were the other way around, I would feel the same way.
We have drones over the US now. As I mentioned in another post, that's about as "1984" as you can get and it's only getting worse. We have slowly
sold our sovereignty to world organization like the UN, the WTO, the World Bank, World Health Organization, etc. That in itself should have any
politician who swore to uphold their oath livid with anger but we don't even hear a whisper.
My question is; where are the good guys? Is there anybody in government who sees this and is willing to stand up and put a stop to it? In the
military? Pentagon? Anywhere?
Are we really without any ally in the US Government who sees the destruction of the U.S., our freedoms, illegal wars and invasions,
Constitution-violating bills and acts?
The downfall of the U.S. is like the 800 lb. gorilla in the room; nobody talks about it! Everybody pretends it isn't happening! How can the news
anchors sit there day after day, reporting propaganda and have absolutely no conscience about it?
I have only one explanation and it's not a simple one but it's the only one that makes sense.
Our government has used "civil freedom" to strip society of any kind of moral compass. There is really one basis for a moral compass and that is
through belief of a higher power. By removing any kind of moral compass and all spiritual belief from society and in fact, from those in power, it
makes corruption far easier to pull off. My reasoning is that I don't believe anybody with any kind of self-respect and moral values could sit in
front of a camera and spew lies, day after day after day. You can argue that they don't know it's a lie but I don't buy it. You and I, regular
folks, see what is happening around us. We see the destruction of society right before our eyes. If we can see it, I tend to believe that those in
power see it as well. The difference is, we still have some sense of right and wrong. We still have a moral compass and sense of justice whereas they
don't. They take their multi-million dollar paychecks and ignore the little people with the attitude of "if I can't see it, then it's not
In the words of Paula Cole, "Where have all the Cowboys gone"? What's your theory? Why is there nobody standing up for the U.S. and defending us
against the tyranny? The invasion of privacy? The corruption in government and on Wall Street? The illegal wars? Corrupt elections? The
dissolution of our sovereignty? Illegal use of "black ops"/mercenaries? The assassination of an American citizen abroad?
