I think the gov keeps us nicely divided and continuously fighting one another. A divided population is easy to control. When Americans can see past
what doesn't matter and unify we will be in a much better position to stand up for our country and countrymen, and fight slimy giant bloodsucking
monster that is AMERICA corp., Inc.
Hell, the government need not interfere when it comes to dividing the American population, we're doing a fantastic job on our own
Besides the fact that most US citizens take the MSM at their word, there seems to be a huge group of ignorant Americans. What I mean by ignorant is
not meant to be condescending, but is meant to mean exactly what the definition of ignorance is:
Lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.
Lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular: "ignorant of astronomy".
So, we have such attitudes similar to "If it's on T.V. or the internet and reported by the news it must be true"
and "I like Fox better than
or vice versas
The vehicles which are driving this madness amongst Americans may very well be the t.v./media. They are a huge part of the problem...yet and still the
ignorance of us as Americans is quite embarrassing. The dumbing down of Americans started a long time ago and now it's heating up to a boiling point.
Anyone ages 13-25 think Jersey Shore is an average everyday life and that Chuck Norris is the coolest guy on the planet ( he is cool but....). The
fact that we have a Declaration seems to be of no importance to the majority of Americans.
As a matter of fact, just look around here on ATS to see what we're currently
Romney Party Yacht Flies Cayman Islands flag
Clint Eastwood Speech Crazy or Fantastic?
Vote Really? Are You Sick In Your Mind?
Teaparty is the American Taliban - "Newsroom"
And those are the recent ones posted within the past 24-72 hours.
1.Why are any of us wasting time arguing why Romney is on a yacht full of other rich guys? Don't we kind of know the answer to that already?
2.Why are we arguing about a Show titled Newsroom? The shows title is kind of obvious don't you think?
3.Why are we arguing about voting? That's self explanatory!
I am not condemning or calling in to question the authors of the above listed threads as they usually do a fantastic job at writing and getting their
points across. I am asking why is everyone so concerned with what's said on tv by the news when we all know on ATS is half-assed at best! Why are we
taking a tv show serious? It's tv for crying out loud! Why would anyone not vote?
I know there are a million plus answers to the questions however, if we are to get past where we are currently as a nation, then we had ALL better get
our heads out of our asses and stop fighting each other and finger pointing. We each have a mind of our own and if we get together in a "Think Tank"
like atmosphere just like the big dogs do it, then I'm sure we as Americans would definitely come up with a possible solution.
Plainly put though...as an average citizen, it's just as much my fault as it is the next citizens fault for allowing such madness to continue. We're
now past the point of blaming McDonalds, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, FOX, POTUS, Romney, Bush, Clinton, Rumsfeld, Rice, Janet Reno, Wendy's, Monsanto, HBO,
MTV, BET, our mayors, governors, senators, congressmen, the FED, the rich, the poor, the middle class, the police, the military, the banks, lobbyists,
Snookie, Lady Ga Ga, The Situation, The Batman Movie, the FDA, the DEA, the FBI, the NSA, the SSA, social security, medicare/medicaid, ObamaCare,
RomneyCare, fat lazy Americans, lazy Americans, ignorance, etc. That's not to say that any previously mentioned entity hasn't played its part, but we
allowed it to play out and we carried the "wait & see attitude" in the process. Well, we "Waited" and "See" what happened?
It takes a United Nation of Americans to stop all of this.
By the way, I am not putting myself on some invisible pedestal, I'm saying it's about time we all unite regardless of color, level of education,
accent, what part of the US you're from, whether you're Dem or Rep., or something else etc., if we intend to have any peace.
Change can happen peacefully
