S/F I want to start by saying as an American Veteran with an Honorable Discharge, Born, Raised, Schooled in The USA, ( on the "Left Coast") This is
one of, if not the most special subjects and threads for me in my 2 yrs on ATS.
I just want to thank you for caring enough to speak the truth and having the courage to do so. If your anything like me, then you know I would rather
die on my feet, than live on my knees like a coward. So many of us, here in The US and beyond, are so distracted. So many are victims by the very
people they think are their neighbors and their treasonous , criminal, career politicians who are loyal to nothing but themselves and act like whores,
for the highest bidders.
I have no shame in saying I make mistakes, but I admit them . One of the biggest mistakes I made in life was forgetting that these, anti American,
anti Constitution, rotten to the core types were and are still contaminating America with their filth and lies. Having said that, I am proud to say I
am not religious but I believe there must be something greater than this. Dare I say a God? Now watch the worms crawl out.
I am proud to have lived and will die in America. I hope to be at peace with those around me. But if my beliefs bother you, move away from me. If
they threaten you, ask yourself why. Lastly, if I am your enemy because of my patriotism? I have 2 words for you and I welcome you to knock on the
door or order me out and may God have mercy on our souls..
Thank you for the Compliment, I am not sure I am worthy of it, but thank you.
You have had as member of the armed forces to 'test' you abilities. Not all of us have, and it is one of the reasons the subject bothers me. I
think many don't realize,, We are lazy couch potatoes at times, so I am not sure how any of us would look in 'traditional' Revolutionary garb, much
less make reasonable choices to avoid being killed in an extreme situation.
Our times are very volatile and I think we all need to look for common denominators among ourselves just for the sake of Humanities survival.
As for our leaders and politicians, yes we all know that they are screwing us with rusty objects, but the question is WHY DOES AMERICA TAKE IT?
I think we are lazy, someone else is doing the work (well,, that is what we thought of our government in ''the day''.)
everyone bitches about April 15th,,, but how many revolt against it,, just a few brave souls who mostly end up being made into propaganda tools for
Our Government is really just a Military/HealthCare Company.
I don't want stock, royalties or a job there,, I would rather be left alone, if my opinion mattered,, which to the government. It does not. I am a
number and statistic, far removed from the Human and Earth Citizen I claim to be. It is sad, only because we are ALL so Frickin Selfish that we
can't for once in history get over the Tribal mindset that divides us, and admit that we are One only as Equal Humans.
No more No Less.
As far as America goes, it looks like it is gone, with just a few diehards waiting for the ''End".
I would rather be remembered for more, maybe like reestablishing the meaning of Unity as not Just Americans, but as Leading Citizens of the Earth, and
be the inspiration that will carry humanity into the 22nd century.
I can Dream.
but, I also can fight if needed.
I would rather Build than destroy, but we are a destructive lot here in the USA, we can't help it because,,
WE ARE THE WORLD in cultures and people.
I can dream that Some American Ingenuity can come of All This.
thanks again for your post, It made my day.
