Do you happen to believe that the good ol United States of Murica has officially fallen?
If so, why do you believe this?
Is it because of Obama? Is it because of the man before him? Is it because of the rich? Or, as what many here on ATS seem to believe, is it because of
the citizens, you and me?
You see, I can't honestly say that I believe it to be fair to blame George or Barrack, they're both just a guy who does what he's told by his boss,
much like all of us. I think the blame for the failure of this nation falls on every damn one of us and I am about to explain why.
Anyone who has ever done even a few hours of legitimate research outside of a high school textbook should be very aware of how this nation was formed.
Those facts point an intelligent individual to the opinion that it was not created of the people by the people for the people. The man who was chosen
by the wealthy who were the only ones allowed to make decisions did not choose George Washington to be our first real president because they had
reason to believe he would make a good leader, they picked him because he seemed to have a knack for getting out of sticky situations and was a man
believed to have luck on his side. Now I am not trying to put down Washington because he did do his job and made a good point that a man given power
could be capable of willingly releasing the power when the time came, something many at the time didn't believe possible. But the fact remains, the
people didn't pick him, the rich people did.
Many of us here on ATS are here because we are interested in conspiracy theories. Most of us accept the fact that there has always and, unless we do
something about it, will always be corruption in politics. Some of us believe that those of us who would make such claims are crazy and will argue
with us until they pass out at the keyboard trying to fight for their false beliefs.
My claim is that America was never created of the people for the people, it was created of the wealthy minority for the wealthy minority. The original
constitution never even gave a reason to believe otherwise, the amendments did. You see, the wealthy who were in charge didn't want to lose the power
that their great wealth granted them and the majority of people at the time were uneducated and easily manipulated, so all one had to do was use
proper wording and the masses would believe anything you wanted them to, much like it still is today.
When the industrial revolution came along, slavery was a big issues not just in the south but also in the north, just under a different name. The
northern slavery was okay because it paid... I'm sorry but I did my homework and this is where I absolutely must draw the line and scream BS.
Slaves in the factories and mines in the north might have been paid but they were not paid enough to properly provide for their families otherwise the
wives and children wouldn't have had to also slave away in those factories for 14-18 hours a day 6-7 days a week along with the man. Yes I did say 6-7
days a week because in many situations workers were only given part of Sunday off for church. Even with the entire family working, even 8 year old
children, pretty much all families had a very difficult time struggling to have the money needed to survive.
There were no workers rights, if you had a problem with doing something that looked as if it would result in the loss of a limb you could either get
over it or leave. If you did end up losing the limb there would be no disability, your @ss is gone and your family suffers for it. This is exactly how
it was back then.
There was no such thing as the middle class. There was an upper class who did little work in comparison to the overworked masses and there was the
lower class overworked masses. And if you're anything like myself, you believe that is still the way it is.
Today we supposedly have a lower class, a lower middle class, a middle class, an upper middle class, and rich and ultra rich who represent the upper
class. That's not exactly true though. What is true is that the upper class has convinced most of us that the other class is our enemy, well not the
other class if it happens to be the upper class but you know... poor people. They're trying to take everything you work for and every damn last one of
them is a drug addicted scumbag who wants to steal your stuff!
Wait! I just have to ask. What is it that we work for?
Cause I for one just ain't seeing very much.
There aren't enough jobs! and it isn't because the poor are taking my jobs from me because I can assure you that they are not. I don't see many "poor
people" being eligible for an entry level position engineering job, that still requires a 4 year degree, I wish it didn't because I'm poor and it
costs too damn much, but it does.
So who is it that are taking the jobs? Is it the poor people or is it the rich people? Well... Poor people don't have the money to make jobs. Rich
people who do make jobs (not all of them do) don't want to pay poor people enough money to survive and do not want to meet their demands so they
simply move the jobs to somewhere that the poor will accept whatever the hell they are given and not question their all mighty leaders.
As I stated earlier, the rich have owned the politicians since the beginning. Obama or Romney, it really didn't matter because they like being paid
more than you and I so they're gonna do what their boss tells them to. That usually does not include doing what's best for the people, maybe a few
lies and illusions here and there but that's about it.
You people destroyed America! From the beginning of the industrial revolution they have offered you jobs and you continue to whine and complain about
how this or that isn't fair or you're not being paid enough. Well... It looks to me like they finally got sick of that and some of them started
moving. Now you complain and blame everyone but them.
Haven't any of you noticed? The rich haven't suffered because of any of the negative crap over the past few years, all of us have. The rich still have
more than enough money to live happily for the remainder of their grandchildren's lives on.
We argue with each other and amongst ourselves for the wrong reason. We should be mad at each other for driving them away.
Alright I'm done doing that. If you really believe that it's our fault and we should have just accepted what they were willing to be generous enough
to give us then you... well I don't really know what to tell ya cause I hear the mental institutions are filling up fast...
There isn't and never was much of a middle class. What if you lost your job tomorrow? Would you be able to live the exact same way, assuming that
could be considered "comfortably," for a year without that job and without the goodwill of others? If you answered no to that question then the
reality is that you are not middle class, you're part of the working lower class who cannot get by if he or she is not working.
So why argue and fight amongst ourselves when we are all victims in this together? America was created for someone other than you and I. How about we
come together and work together to change that rather than continue to blame and fight each other. We can bring this nation up but we have to all
agree to embrace knowledge and get over our hate in order to do so. If you cannot accept this then please, feel free to leave with those big business
