I am not proud to be an American in These Dark Ages and I Will Not Vote in November Except Against This System
Aside from one ‘sandwich’ generation of credit-driven, pseudo-glitter, tail-fin affluence in the fifties and early sixties when everyone thought they would be rich forever, American working and middle class people have been slowly herded from one “Great Depression” to the current “Greater Depression” without any change in national leadership at all.
ALL GONE, FOLKS! NEVER REALLY EXISTED…
From 1913 – 2013 the Dollar Lost 94% of its Buying Power. We Are Now Broke.
I am not proud to be an American in These Dark Ages and I Will Not Vote in November Except Against This System, because I do not like being called a sheep nor being broke.
We are about to go into another totally meaningless “election”, a Barnum & Bailey, Ringling Brothers circus freak-and-monster side-show that distracts us from reality while we select our “Supreme Leader”!
A choice between two lying, tax-evading clowns…
And in this corner….
And ‘We, The People’ still show no desire at all for change other than being conned into Obama’s last campaign promises and voting according to instructions – Will Mitt tell us how to avoid taxes?
Even with fifty million of us out on food stamps today we’re still showing no goodol’ US of A courage, no badges of honor, no ‘thin line’, red or blue stretching anywhere… we’re a people without balls, with no one angry enough, no one pissed off enough to stand up and say, “that’s it you thieving bastards!” except OWS.
I hope Lincoln’s words are still hovering in the background of this wonderful New American Poverty behind our bombs:
“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise our constitutional right of amending it or our revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.”
Obama’s “Change” platform sounded great because we were definitely ‘weary’ after a hundred years of ‘inflation’. But he was just making noises that seriously made the idea of ‘dismember it’ a much better option than to go through this farce again with the same system remaining in place.
There won’t be any change after this ‘election’, either.
There is only One Party, folks and you do not belong to it!
It’s called The War Party, with two equally profligate spending wings, each individual in lock step sucking on personal investments in the obscenely profitable Defence Industry… that’s what is running the show, with or without us.
We just ain’t got the balls to buck it…
Tent City, capitol of “The Richest Country in the World”.
Mickey Mouse died in Viet Nam along with Mom & Pop, Apple Pie and the Pursuit of Happiness.
I’d like at at least one shot at getting that one back (while indicting Wal-Mart for killing Mom & Pop).
But That’s Not All, Folks!
The Great Con took our moral high ground (the idea that we are a better, more generous people) from right under our noses, along with our honor, our sense of duty, fair play and justice, our common Spiritual virtues and faith in ourselves “through the rule of the many”, our ability to stand proud anywhere in the world and say, “I Am an American” without people throwing old shoes at us and spitting.
I am not proud of being an American today.
The American identity is a Nightmare-on-Elm-Street joke outside of our borders, and the only fault of “We, The People” is that good men are doing nothing to stop it
Where’s our conscience? What happened to our individual pride, courage, our passion and self-respect? Gone: are we all drugged or is it all in the name of money – in God we Trusted and The FED took His place!
Our loyalty, fidelity and that trust in God; all our love, hope and dreams ripped out of our hearts, replaced with poverty and fear of Wall Street: by now anyone sleeping in their cars should have no trust left at all in the American Dream, but you do!
You’re going into another totally meaningless “election”, another circus side-show freak-and-monster parade to select one of those lying, tax-evading clowns as our Supreme Leader!
We’ve lost our American soul to the people running a global war for wealth, people who are already over-wealthy, in their love of money above all else.
We know about this Grand Theft now, and are ashamed. We know the depth of the theft – not just of monetary wealth and jobs and foreclosed homes and stolen retirement funds – the 30′s again! - but the theft of all those virtues I mentioned including the theft of our Sovereignty, a grand theft without any precedent in history:
Theft of self-ownership through debt.
Don’t go to the polls in November.
If you do, write-in Ron Paul or any other Candidate that you believe will get you back a life.
Or write off your childrens’ and their children’s lives, too.
That’s the choice, good people.
