From a friend. Different perspective.

The scary part of it is that the Cuban population couldn’t see it coming and I fear a majority of us here in the USA don’t see it coming either.


I am a Cuban American and I am very worried about the United States of America.

Got this back and do not know if no one got this or just the one in question, anyway ....

The scary part of it is that the Cuban population couldn’t see it coming and I fear a majority of us here in the USA don’t see it coming either.

>>>
>>> What others see plainly, we often ignore.
>>>
>>> *Here's something to think about.*
>>>

I remember asking dad about Castro when I was about 9 years old. I asked, "Is Castro a good guy or bad?"
>>>
>>> Dad said...he couldn't tell!! This was about 1955. We were living in Louisiana ...at the time. Dad was in the Army there.
>>>
>>> Cuba was fairly close and in the news a lot. The Cubans were asking the same question!
>>>
>>> Ike was president.
>>>
>>> This past July, we had the pleasure of sharing a summer barbecue with a refugee from Cuba . Our dinner conversation was starkly different than most.
>>>
>>> This refugee came to the United States as a young boy in the early 1960's. His family was more fortunate than most, as they were able to bring a suitcase...and $100 when they fled Castro's newly formed revolutionary paradise.
>>>
>>> Our dinner consisted of all-American fare: hamburgers, potato salad, watermelon and fresh ears of sweet corn. This is a menu shared with family and friends nationwide...while celebrating the birth of our beloved America ...on the Fourth of July.
>>>
>>> We began with a simple discussion about our country, and the direction it has taken since Barack Obama came to power. We shared the usual complaints about the sour economy and liberal social engineering emanating from the rulers in Washington .
>>>
>>> But then he said it. The sentence came naturally. I assume it was unplanned. But it carried the weight of a freight train. "You know, when Castro took power, none of us knew he was a Communist".
>>>
>>> We sat stunned. He continued, "Yes, we all thought he was a patriot, a nationalist. Before the revolution he didn't sound like a radical."
>>>
>>> The comparison at this point was easy, and I interjected, "You mean just like Barack Obama?"
>>>
>>> He responded, "Yes, just like Barack Obama."
>>>
>>> He continued, "We were all shocked as the government just continued to grab more power. First they said the revolution is over, so please turn in your guns. We all complied."
>>>
>>> I remember my uncle saying after it started; “Castro will only nationalize some of the big industries. He will never come and take our family hardware store!!” But that is exactly what happened. Castro started with the sugar mills and the large industries, but they eventually came and knocked on the door of our family hardware store. My family had run this store for generations. They said we now own the hardware store, you work for us. And that nice, large four-bedroom home you own...it is now our property also, and...you can move yourself and five children into two rooms of the house, because others are moving in with you."
>>>
>>> The lesson learned from this discussion, is a lesson most Americans refuse to hear. Political leaders can lie about their agenda and once in office...they can take totally unexpected turns.
>>>
>>> If you had asked us three years ago if we thought General Motors would be nationalized, we would have never believed it. We could never contemplate a country where the rule of law, the most fundamental building block of a justice society...would be evaporating, just like it did in Castro's Cuba in the early 1960's.
>>>
>>> But the news of injustice keeps increasing. Black Panthers are not charged with wrong doing by the U.S. Department of Justice...because their crimes are against whites. The bondholders of GM are stripped of their assets...without due process by the government! Governmental leaders are bribed in full daylight...only to have all investigation of the crimes stifled...by the Attorney General.
>>>
>>> The U.S. borders are over run with crime and illegal activity, and the leaders in D.C. act as if it is important to protect the lawbreakers...while the innocent are killed and over run. When local communities attempt to enforce the law, they are ridiculed...and threatened as racists and bigots. They are sued by the very administration...entrusted with enforcing the law.
>>>
>>> Without the rule of law, the U.S. Constitution is a sham!! Without the rule of law, our beloved America is swiftly becoming a country where only the well connected and politically powerful will be safe. As Michelle Malkin has so eloquently explained in her recent book...a culture of corruption has replaced honest government.
>>>
>>> The only way this problem will be fixed, is by massive citizen action. All honest citizens who want to be treated equally must come together...and demand that the favoritism, the bribes, the uneven enforcement of law...end now!! And yes, it can happen here.
>>>
>>> And...may God save the United States of America !
>>>
>>> *...the least you can do is forward this email. 6 million plus Jews didn't believe it would happen in Germany either!!! If you're a Christian in these United States of America , you're next on the list. The real problem here is, the boy from Cuba did manage to make it to the U.S. We will not have any place to escape to...except death! And, for the most part...even though I'm forwarding this to recipients, probably only 5 or 10 will even read it.
>>> "There's never a wrong time to do the right thing, and never a right time to do the wrong thing."
>>> People think this will never happen in America , but it IS HAPPENING TODAY!!!

Point to one person who isn't, and I'll show you either a politician or someone who is happily insane (possibly both).

Yes. you should be concerned. Evidently, you have some protection so take advantage of it. However, I completely believe: So, I have read posts from people who are completely apathetic, posts from people who are completely dependant on the government and posts from "survivors". It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out who would be around after a global disaster. Those who live without already, those who have prepared, those that can survive. To put it bluntly, the "giveruppers" are already dead. I unfortunately have to add my son amoung these. He claims he will be dead by the age of forty (why I don't know) and is adament about living life to the fullest. By the way, he is only 24 years old. I am completely baffeled by his attitude. I am seeing a lot of his attitude if you will, on ATS site and it bothers me. We are inherantly designed to survive, so when I hear young people today choosing not to survive, I have to wo nder what has gone wrong.

Oh boy doom porn!


I'm going to deny ignorance.....


And say this looks to me like a poorly scripted chain letter from a paid political shill....


Is something bad going to happen if you don't forward this message to 10 friends? Sheez!

When and ONLY when I see Obama, donning a military uniform (like Dubya did), and packin' an AK47....

THAT'S when I'll start worrying..... In the mean time...

Viva Gorditas!

Doom porn, yes. I have been out of the US since 2007, before the election of Obama. Things may not have gotten better there and quite likely even gotten worse but I would remind people that may have forgotten, these problems did not start just on Obama's watch.

When I was retiring in 2006 we were concerned with our charter flight that brought us to our work location and back weekly that we were soon going to be mandated to follow TSA requirements to board our required flights. This was already in the works long before Obama. The gun-running to the Mexican crime gangs did not start under Obama either, that was already going on before it got exposed on his watch - and the whole story has not yet come to light.

Americans should do well with paying attention to the direction the country is heading, and they should not be distracted by watching one party's leader and not paying attention to what the other hand is doing - these are both arms of the same organism. The potential problems are from places beyond party politics but most often can be seen prarie-dogging there. Those rabbit holes are inter-connected and go much deeper than that.

Americans seem overly complacent about giving up their individuality in order to see their society conform to rigid societal standards backed by force of law. Before you are all largely heading orderly in the same direction you should ask yourselves, do you really want to go there?

I have just read every post you have here and believe that you are fake.

Your accounts, language, and writing style are widely different between each of your posts.
I do not believe you.

The main problem here is right now short of a revolution, we can't get past over or above our so called representatives. Those congressmen and senators that are supposed to have our best interests at heart are really out for themselves.
Why can they vote on a pay raise for themselves? That should be illegal. Yet how do we get a vote out and then GET THEM TO PASS IT? Of course they won't let that bill slide.
Reagan got in because he promised to get rid of the super pacs,yet they changed what they were called back then and kept right on bribing our congress.
Do you think they will put a stop to it? Highly unlikely.
There should be a cap on they're pay.If they are there to SERVE the people,then they should be paid a minimum amount and serve.Not look at they're service as a get rich quick with they're war chest scheme
But you'll never get them to change that either.
They should have the same term limits on them as on the president, ha ha try to get that one past them.
The president only has so much power, for the rest he has to go to the congress, and these are the most corrupt people ever!
They have no issue with taking away our freedom,arms, and constitution to get anything they want.America is lost.
All I can say at this point and time is ,I'm glad my parents are dead so they can't see just how low this country has gone down.

Too many people don't take it seriously. Thats life....I guess.........it's sad the people we would depend on are flaking out. Time to toughen up even more.

Why are you posting chain emails that are horribly written and clearly propaganda pieces?

The whole thing is one giant Obama hit piece. Whoever wrote it has absolutely no idea what Communism even is, Obama is a fascist.

I have a really hard time believing that a Cuban American is going to complain about Hispanic immigrants and worried about being called racist over it.

This e-mail was written by someone that watches Fox news all day while eating pork rinds. It's probably one of the worst things I have ever read in my life.

Ok, so, realistically, even if Obama was a communist, he would have never been 'allowed' to achieve the progress that he's made. No offence to anybody, but does the majority of the U.S. really think that Obama is a communist or socialist? Seriously.. TPTB are the grand puppeteer masters.

Of course they lied.....surprise, surprise. The "ends justify the means" and once in power they can enforce their new ("modified") agenda at the point of a gun barrel. Those "useful idiots" who helped them get to power (but not privy to the endgame) were likely eliminated if they objected. A lesson for those being compartmentalized and used today.......

It dosen't matter who is elected President. The President who is elected has to do the bidding of TPCG. If the elected Presidents don't do as told, they will end up as JFK etc.
