Although the fourth of July doesn’t mean as much to me as it used to, I still like to celebrate the finer things this country has to offer. When you get older, you tend to look at things with a more cynical viewpoint, due to the experience of being burned in the past. Our elected officials have all but destroyed the morale of Americans and have accomplished the difficult task of turning a winner into a loser. We didn’t do it to ourselves. It’s the choices and polices that our government made that led us down the slippery slope we find ourselves sliding now. You shouldn’t feel ashamed about the current state of the country, since you know what needs to be done.
Americans are a great people. Inside of 200 years, we’ve managed to conquer the world and establish a vast empire, one the world has never seen before.
The two party process is a fucking fraud. They like to pit one against the other, D versus R, so that we don’t focus on how they are emptying the treasury for their personal gain. The media in this country is NO DIFFERENT than Chinese controlled state media, where the dickbags on every network suck the cock of Obama, nightly, no matter what he says or does. When Bush was President, there was plenty of criticism, but he was always protected by the other arm of state media, the one that supports the R’s. The genius of the Fox News vs MSNBC crowds is that it fans the flames and establishes the talking points of D vs R debates. I am sure most are unaware of this clever strategy, all properly financed and supported by the established elite.
They want you to go to the polls, like fucking sheep, and vote for one of two people to represent your country. The only problem is both candidates are exactly the same, both vacuous in soul and mind. We haven’t been blessed with a great leader in a long, long time. There are plenty of leaders out there, but none stupid enough to run for public office. The machine is well oiled on both sides and isn’t receptive to outsiders trying to muscle in.
Aside from the situation they put us in financially, they’ve ruined our food supply, fucked up the water supply, trashed health care, denigrated U.S. manufacturing capability, allowed U.S. education standards to drop to third world levels, and initiated the greatest transfer of wealth the world has ever seen, from west to east, via oil purchases. If this were another era, one where men had steel in them, pitchforks would be flying at the White House tomorrow, demanding the resignation of every single member of Congress and the executive branch.
Instead, we will all run around the BBQ tomorrow, while watching jackasses play baseball, tossing around jumping jacks– without a care in the world.
We’re dancing in a club that is on fire and we don’t even know it.
