On July 4th, tomorrow, America celebrates it’s Independence from Britain but we stand on the verge of destruction of this very country we all love. From within. From our own, overbearing, overreaching government.
There is not a Patriotic American within the sound of my voice, or with in reach of my writing who will not agree that this country is the Greatest Country that has ever existed, and almost every, single one of them, myself included would or have been willing to stand up to keep this country great. Every one of us will fight to protect our country if it were invaded. Every one of us has an opinion about how it should be run. Almost none of us stand together on one, simple act – defiance of what is happening to us right now in this country. Some shrug their shoulders and move on, some ignore the problem completely, some of us loudly, vocally proclaim the wrongs done but can’t fix it alone.
Unfortunately for Americans we are in the midst of what I called “The Throes of Progressive Tyranny”. A few years ago I created a forum on our TAA web site to track the progress of Progressiveness and the Progressive Tyranny that is haunting this country, from the most basic precepts of “Political Correctness” to Nationalization of the Health Care system and everything in between.
On 20 January 2009, Barack Hussein Obama was innagurated as the 44th President, running on a platform of “Hope and Change”, talking about “Fundemental Change” in America. Most of us saw this man then for what we now know he is.
On 14 December 2012, Adam Lanza is believed to have walked into a school (without any assistance) to shoot and kill twenty small children, babies really, and six adults. Before that he killed his mother in cold blood while she was sleeping, took guys, put on military style armor and went to the school. Immediately there were calls to ban guns. Most of us saw this coming the moment we were learning children had died.
Obamacare, the so-called “Affordable Health Care Act” was “passed before we get to see what’s in it”…. Congress created, then opened Pandora’s Box. (For the uneducated, who don’t know the story of Pandora, I’ll leave it to you to look it up….). Everyone in the United States, no matter how naive they pretend to be grasped the ramifications of Nationalization of the Medical Care in America.
Then the media started breaking scandal after scandal. Everything from “Project Gun Walker” to the NSA leaker Snowden letting the world know Americans were being spied upon by their own government. The Justice Department investigating journalists as “terrorists”, spying on them, and entire news organizations, to lying through their teeth to cover their asses.
There is so much more that has gone against our very way of life, to coin a phrase, truth, justice and the American Way. So much for Superman, huh?
Americans are just DAMNED sick and tired of being lied to. They are damned tired of the Government getting into their business. One could certainly compare 1775 and events leading up the American Revolutionary War with today. In fact, one COULD sit and start writing down all of the abuses by this government against the people, starting with the very idea the government seems to have forgotten their place; that is that they work for us, we don’t belong to them. Most of us are simply too lazy though to do ANYTHING about it.
Indeed this country stands on an abyss. Tomorrow we celebrate, but who knows what happens next Monday? I don’t. Perhaps nothing will change, just status quo. Sheep getting up and going to work, working their lives away to pay our debt to our great grandchildren.
Obama and his administration have certainly accomplished their “fundamental change” haven’t they? Americas are about to be shepherded by the IRS to ensure they pay for their own health care. We’ve had states ban our guns. We’ve had police forces become military-strong. We’ve been told where to go, when to go, how to go and by the way, don’t use Gas, Oil, Coal or any of that nasty carbon-producing-stuff that kills things. Oh and if you don’t mind, just die you human because you eat, and excrete and make it bad for “Mother Gaia”.
The Abyss is… step up and stop the crimes against this country, or stand down and be a sheep. Sheep eventually are sheared, and many are just led to slaughter.
Which will you stand up and be, sheep or Patriot?
July 2nd, 2013 – 12:23 am
As we approach July 4, 2013, is America in a pre-revolutionary state? Are we headed for a Tahrir Square of our own with the attendant mammoth social turmoil, possibly even violence.Could it happen here?
We are two-thirds of the way into the most incompetent presidency in our history. People everywhere are fed up. Even many of the so-called liberals who propelled Barack Obama into office have stopped defending him in the face of an unprecedented number of scandals coming at us one after the other like hideous monsters in some non-stop computer game.
And now looming is the monster of monsters, ObamaCare, the healthcare reform almost no one wanted and fewer understood.
It will be administered by the Internal Revenue Service, an organization that has been revealed to be a kind of post-modern American Gestapo, asking not just to examine our accounting books but the books we read. What could be more totalitarian than that?
Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal warns the costs of ObamaCare are close to tripling what were promised, and the number of doctors in our country is rapidly diminishing. No more “My son, the doctor!” It doesn’t pay.
And young people most of all will not be able to afford escalating health insurance costs and will end up paying the fine to the IRS, simultaneously bankrupting the health system and enhancing the brutal power of the IRS — all this while unemployment numbers remain near historical highs.
