Above are just two threads from many that have spurred me to write this one.
Dunno how long this will last, though. It's not going to be a nice thread, nor a pretty one.
First let me apologise to many. I'm sorry. Not everyone can be brave. I wrongly assumed that people would naturally embrace noble efforts. I
wrongly assumed that people would steer clear of cowardice.
It takes guts to be responsible.
It takes courage to self-determine and make your own way.
Then there are those that shun responsibility.
Those that willingly cede self-determination.
Those that gladly give up independence.
But not everyone can be brave. And that's what political leaders are counting on.
From PC indoctrination (see above thread) to hate-filled vitriol towards independent groups like the Tea Party (see above thread) America is looking
to eliminate independence.
They want to see a nation filled with victims. People who get offended and cry for help from government.
People who get sick and cry for help from government.
People who need and want someone(government) telling them what to do.
How to act.
How to live.
What to eat.
What to drink.
What to buy.
What to earn.
The government wants cowards.
Are you against Obamacare? Then you are mean and stupid and want people to die. (not true)
Are you against higher taxes? Then you are greedy and mean and don't want to help out poorer people. (not true)
Are you against PC? Then you are a bigot or a fascist. A hater who doesn't want equality. (not true)
But that is the meme being engineered in our society.
The government wants you to run and hide if you see someone with a gun. They see that as a better solution than fighting back.
They want victims.
They want whiners.
They want cowards.
If you are an independent thinker, you are a hater.
If you are self-reliant, you are a hater, a domestic terrorist.
I guess the choices have become clear.
In America you have a choice.
You can be a coward and be accepted by the government and take what they give you and don't you dare complain
or you can be brave, independent,
self-reliant, self-determined, and be vilified, hated, and be a target by the coward nation.
This probably constitutes a rant, but I feel it has social ramifications as well. Though if it comes off as too hateful and angry, then delete if you
must, oh mods of the site!
