I appoligize for the actions of my country the last few years. I really do… I was indoctrinated by the propoganda myself, until recently. What we’re doing isn’t right. We don’t have the moral authority or financial capability to support our empire overseas. (Yes, it’s an empire. I used to scoff when people spoke in these terms, but when you look at the facts… the evidence is damning. To quote System of a Down, “Manufacturing consent is the name of the game. The bottom line is money, nobody gives a ****”.
Many of you may be angry at us (the American people.) What you have to realize is how ignorant the average American is.This isn’t an insult, or meant to anger or offend any fellow citizens on this board, it’s just the cold, hard, truth. It’s kind of like when a doctor tells a patient he/she is clinically obese. It’s a real problem and it’s time someone talked about it.
I’m in my sophomore year of college. I haven’t met a single person (friend/acquaintence/roomate, whatever) that has the slightest idea what I’m talking about when I reference the “bailout”. My economics professor is equally ignorant, having nothing but praise for the Speaker Pelosi DECLARING MARTIAL LAW IN THE HOUSE OF REPARSENTATIVES to pass a bill that neither the public or most legislators wanted.
The problem will be blamed on personal and corporate freedom, and be used as leverage to take it away. Go look up the Federal Reserve. No one will do a damn thing about this though. I fear even if we could, it may be too late…
I can see the writing on the wall. I have lost ALL CONFIDENCE in this corrupt circus that we call the United States government. The dollar is going to collapse within a matter of weeks. Martial law (not the kind in the House, the kind with riot police busting down our doors) thereafter. If you think I’m joking or being hyperbolic, go do some research.
I, unlike many of my peers, have studied history. I know what happened in Germany in the 30’s. God help us. Ron Paul may have been our last chance.
I never thought I’d have to be afraid to say anything, as an American. But as I type this, I realize that I may well be dooming myself to prison in the effort to suppress a civiil war. But something must be said.
I hope I’m wrong. I hope I’m overlooking something. I hope the leeked reports I heard of the secret meeting of the House are false, but if they aren’t… I ask the global community to recognize who is to blame for this TREASON and have mercy and understanding for American citizens. It’s been a while since we had any say in our government.
