What has happened to America? What is wrong with America? Why is our economy so screwed up? How did we get here?
It has been a slow, creeping sickness- America was infected decades ago with the separation virus. Yes, that's correct, the separation virus. It's not a left wing conspiracy nor a right wing conspiracy, it's fully infected both sides.
Our government has become an entity separated from it's people. Isn't it supposed to be "of the people, by the people, for the people"? Yes, it is supposed to be for it's citizens, but it has become an entity only concerned with it's own survial, expansion and domination of American citizens. Do you have any say whatsoever in where the government spends the money it takes from your paychecks? No, you do not, nor do I. It takes our money and sends pallets of it to Iraq to pay for the civilians that it kills over there, and to pay for allegiance of tribes and intel in Afhanistan. It takes our money and gives it, no strings attached, to rich banking executives who made so many greed driven mistakes that they're out of business, then cries foul when they give themselves bonuses. These same congresspersons who were charged with banking oversight now act like they had nothing to do with the failed economy. Now it's giving money to bail out irresponsible people who bought houses they could never afford and signed loan documents which they knew would bankrupt them if rates went up or they couldn't sell, but were gambling and never saw the downturn coming. It sends billions of dollars worth of weapons to Israel every year then tries to tell us "the Islamic extremists just hate us because of our lifestyle" . No, they want to kill us because our government helped setup Israel in 1947 and has been supporting it ever since. No judgement whether this is right or wrong, just the fact that it is the reason they hate us and want to kill us. It is time to bring home all the troops from everywhere and put them on our borders. We have thousands of troops in Korea, Germany, Italy, Japan, Colombia, all over the world causing people to hate us.
What are we as citizens supposed to do now? What can we do? What did George Washington and Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry and Sam Adams do when their government became an enemy? They declared their right to replace it!
