Gone America, Gone
I've reached the regrettable conclusion, no matter the political party in power, I can't but think America the beautiful, the land of the free and home of the brave, is gone forever. That is not to say the liberal Democrats have not hastened it's demise in it's absurd social agenda, but the root mean cause of it's demise can be primarily laid at the feet of inept, self-serving politicians of all persuasions-, that through deceit and guile have garnered elected office, surrounded themselves with like thinking acolytes, in turn irreparably altered the course of the greatest society ever: the federal constitutional republic of the United States of America. We, its citizens have obediently, in large enough numbers, followed them over the edge of the cliff! In tormented free fall now only left to contemplate the error of our ways. Sad to know that our children, our children's children, will never experience the opportunities, the prosperity, the benevolence, the strength and tolerance of this once great society. For that matter, perhaps not even made aware of its existence, for it's presence is sure to be masked in politically correct spin and the recording of prejudicial history. To sit back and observe the political theater going on around us, to take the measure of the performing thespians, our elected officials, makes my head spin. Their motives and intent confusingly ethereal on one hand, alarmingly foreboding on the other.The core incompetency of government run anything is blatant and demonstrated every where it is practiced, yet we stand by and watch its practitioners insidiously annex and/or subvert private enterprise, usurp individual rights and freedoms as if a mandate to do so from the very economy and citizenry it oppresses. How can we be lulled into concern over raising the debt ceiling while ignoring the debt itself; how can we be threatened by the consequences of default on debt payments, when our income still exceeds our debt maintenance.., not for long I'm sure. But, the point, all this smoke and mirrors, all these manufactured crises to further a political agenda of deception, corruption and greed. To add insult to injury, to have our Chief Executive Officer, our President refuse to negotiate a compromise on grounds it would aid and abet his opposition is out of touch with his job description-, this is a democracy not a monarchy! Simply we have been had by the system, by this regime, and most of us are not even aware of it! Is there no end to these distracting school yard antics while the Sword of Damocles hangs precariously over our heads!
