OMG I dont even know what to say!...!... I LOVE YOU, MAN!
Geez you just defined this feeling Ive had for so long, but couldnt think of a word. Well now I realize its because there is no word for that feeling,
only a description.
I am clueless about what I can do to make a change... But I do feel something needs to happen.
Occasionally i will post a comment or link on my facebook status... but all my 200 supposed "friends" only give me crickets. But when I post (Ive
tested this a few times) something about "proud American" or "snoop dog" or even "kardasians" I get a dozen likes or replies... It is sad. And
BTW... I dont do kardasians or any other reality show or B-C-D list celebs... i watch movies and tv shows.
Ill watch MSM for local news... But when politics, foreign policy, or financial news comes on, I cannot help but to laugh or get extremely angry. The
anger usually comes when I see them bold faced lying, even with a smirk, and so brasen that they turn to belittle or down right insult the
I am a registered democrat, voted for Obama, and up until the past couple years or so i blamed Rep's for everything wrong in this downhill spiral we
call America, which is barely a shell of what it used to be.
I see Bill after Bill being passed taking away out civil liberties and rights as citizens.
I watch politicians from the left and right pretend to attack each other about the most trivial sh1t on earth like g*y marriage, abortion, welfare or
immigration. I see suits from the right bash away at brown people hailing "it is not our problem" while the left hands out temporary candy treat
solutions for Brown's as if halloween was here...
The whole time both parties have americans divided over the issue giving us the illusion of choice while somehow "IT IS" our problem to defend
isreal, stop Iran nuclear while ignoring others, give Iraqi people 'freedom", and battle "insurgents in afghanistan" and they show us skinny old
angry looking middle esatern people in bathrobes wearing sandals in caves and somehow use that to convince americans these people who dont even own
cars or dishwasher will somehow carry out the next terrorist attack on america from half a globe away. But yet THIS IS OUR PROBLEM, while finding a
solution for immigration is not our problem.
So i come here to ATS, and have been for about a year, because I find alternative news or sources to common or not so common issues. But then i see so
many people here who claim to be so "open minded" turn around to be so fiercly devoted to one side or another as if Obama and Romney presented
significantly different agendas...
In MY OPINION, and I could be wrong, but the way I see it now, is that Dem's agenda likes to promote government and unions in the form of local state
and federal in conjunction with labor unions while the Rep's agenda seems to promote for the 1%'s, which means us, the people, are left with nothing
to represent us.
BUT YET somehow the american voters time and time again go on to vote in the same congressman/woman term after term and have no clue how they voted on
which bills. AGAIN this is JUST IMO...
The american mentality seems to be, im a rep so ill vote rep and these folks will see things my way, and the same goes for Dem's.
I believe people need to wake up but i just dont know how to do my part. My peers will get into fist fights over supposedly being "PROUD AMERICANS"
but they are clueless as to what is going on in our own country and they have bought into the whole "brown middle easterns are the root of our
Then you got the Alex Jones people... while Mr Jones is good at disclosing some information, it gets old watching him blame Obama for everything as if
the mess Obama inherited had nothing to do with our current situation... as if somehow our current system of directed failure was conceived, born and
nurtured under obama and not over the last twenty years but sped up after bush stole the first election.
Personally, despite different people having different opinions about him... I think America lost its only true hope when Bill Cooper was assassinated
by plain-clothed American spies.... Bill almost literally predicted 9-11 and then immediately began exposing the truth but was killed before he was
Please people... If you ever have been outspoken about being a "PROUD AMERICAN" stop fighting with our fellow americans over left/right because
remember, 99% of us are in the exact same boat!!!! Why is that so hard to believe, especially when you have witnessed the atrocities over the last 12
@watcher i think I found someone who feels like me...
