Many, many years ago, a young child named “America”, who only existed as an “idea” … a possibility of hope, freedom, and opportunity, emerged through the darkness of tyranny, racial oppression, war, inequality, and worse. Many sought to protect her … many sought to use her. And, for a while it seemed that America, this beautiful child, had an opportunity to be something “more” than those who came before. Thanks to the people who saw what she could be (the fathers who “found” her), they picked her up off the ground, wiped away her tears, and sought to put in place a government where that dream could be realized.
She would end inequality, bring about justice reform, offer people hope, and build a world full of science, religion, and prosperity. But … the people charged with her care (aka the Citizens), became a cancer. Greed stole away her chance for freedom. Corruption undid her justice. And, 50,000 years of human bickering, hatred, and manipulation broke her spirit as it assaulted her people, her ideas, and blanketed her in filth.
Oh, she tried to continue to fight to be what those founders wanted for her. She did very well against the odds. But, she has stood alone for a long time … a child without parents, siblings, or even friends. Natives were displaced … countries stormed in to take her resources, and men fought and died over matters that belonged to the old world (racism, slavery, tyranny), only to bring about a world where her ideas, her hopes, and her dreams were never given a chance to just “work”.
A child, alone, fought against 50,000 years of slavery, abuse, inequality, hatred, and tyranny – beating every odd there was. She stood up for others and more than being a “protector”, it was her spirit that inspired an entire planet to change. The entire world was inspired by the very simple and very basic idea that: they could BE better. For a while, it “appeared” outwardly, that America was the chosen child to lead an entire planet into greatness.
America … the America she “could” be … never stood a chance. She was never given an opportunity to “be”, to prove that the idea could work. A Constitution – so that the laws of the land could not be corrupted by greed, was long since demolished through unrepresented taxation, usurpation of political powers, and abuses of what freedoms it represented. A 3-tiered government that even the founders were so afraid of, they tried desperately to stop what was coming … but had to trust in the “people” … and all to no avail.
America was supposed to be the home of the brave. Its soldiers went to war to fight for the freedoms and protections promised to their loved ones back home, and all the people around them, dying, suffering, and struggling … only to be morally and emotionally betrayed. Citizens were “trained” to abandon self-protection for “law enforcement”, putting into power people … the very same flawed and imperfect beings who would fall prey to their own, human instincts.
But, America kept going. She had a cancer that she kept hidden from the world. Hated, spit upon, and under the constant threat of religious and political persecution – she tried to live up to the potential that was hers. But the cancer came in many forms. Dark players, pretending to care for the people, hid the cancer … the truth, so even before the enlightened were transformed into the apathetic sheep they are today, calling themselves “patriots”, but taking no care or action to cut out the cancer … money and greed took its toll. The people, instead of rising above pettiness, became hypocrites, demanding that they not be stereotyped and assaulted, stereotyped and assaulted other cultures. The people … the very heart of America, gave way to apathy, “things”, and through the manipulation of their leaders, continued to fight like rabid animals with no hope of healing. The people soon became nothing but fodder for corporations – greedy, power-hungry manipulators that would just as soon kill for profit as spit on you.
But, it didn’t stop with America. The cancer spread. Because the world had become SO thrilled with the ideas that made America great (not knowing the truth about the growing cancer), they let those same, dark elements into their lives, too. Today, the world is okay with a power-hungry computer geek using genetic manipulation to control global diseases and “cures”, Google/Alphabet using their billions to start CRISPR to genetically screw the world’s animal/insect population, and Disney, a children’s entertainment group, gets to own the majority of every real-estate, network, and production company in the world (including the news media). Warren Buffet, the owner of Pacific Power utilities and creator of the Berkshire Hathaway stock (and subsequent buddy of George Soros and Democrat crusader AGAINST clean energy) controls Dairy Queen, Heinz, railways, Fruit of the Looms and others. Verizon owns GTE, Sony owns UNIVERSITIES AND SCHOOLS, Nike using child slave labor for shoes, China committing genocidal atrocities while funding the ever important “sports” that people can’t seem to turn off, and even Microsoft is programming the AI to operate the U.S. Nuclear Weapons program taking out the “human” factor in trade of dangerous machines run by dangerous people. This is a short list of a LOT of powerful companies – GLOBALLY, doing a LOT of insane things. The proof is in the people because if you even understood 1/10th of the consolidation of economic power on the planet, or in America, which many Americans are waking up to … but did nothing to change it … then … you’re lost. People are not as stupid as they would like to pretend to be. They know, when they watch their sports, that somewhere on the planet, a child is being abused to help fund that. They know, that when they shop, machines have replaced people so the morality of putting toxins in foods is no longer a concern for corporations – but people keep shopping because they’re scared … they’re lost … and they don’t know what else to do. That’s cancerous.
The government, which “used” to be appointed by the people, no longer functions to protect America or fight for her, but only exacerbates her cancerous condition. America does NOT have an effective “anti-trust” system from the FTC and HASN’T, except against little companies that don’t bribe them, and has for AT LEAST the past 30 years. America does NOT have an effective food and drug protection for the people from the FDA due to bribery and partisan lobbying and HASN’T for at least the past 20 years. America does NOT have an FBI that investigates outside of partisanship (and based on the behavior of the CIA/NSA – it superficially appears to be the same way). Nor does America have a Department of Defense through the DoD that actually does “defense”. America doesn’t have a working political system that models itself after those founders who saw her potential and dreamed of the great things she could be. America’s corruption flows from the very tip top down to the men and women in local and state offices who continue to participate in this corruption. America’s sickness is complete.
The founding fathers, who sought to raise this child into something wonderful, saw three opportunities that would define the “idea” of this young child’s Constitutional Republic Democracy:
And the Pursuit of Happiness.
Liberty was founded upon the idea that the government would never usurp the will of the people, would always serve to protect them, and always put the interests and well-being of the masses, first. Greedy taxes, broken regulatory agencies, fallen law enforcement, rotted education, black-flag operations, failed military leaders, broken justice, discrimination at every level, the wealthy being exempt from justice, and corrupt politicians have rotted Liberty to its core. We even know now that Communism (born long after the Constitutional Republic Democracy), has been an invasive cancer manipulating this country for decades. We have not been “free” – for a very, long time. Whether beholden to taxation, corruption, or manipulation – Liberty is only a faint echo of what it was meant to be (and only on the surface).
The Pursuit of Happiness was supposed to be the opportunity to be educated, work hard, and follow the “American dream”. That didn’t mean wealth and superiority – it meant a free chance to be who you wanted and what you wanted to be, defining your own successes and triumphs. The cultural fights over religion, gender, race, money, ethics, and the failure to control corporate power left in the hands of the most vile of people has ruined happiness. We have been driven into “ownership” of “things” as a means of valuing life itself. We have been led into a world of working to survive only to own more “things”. Education is twisted to suit the wealthy. Racial issues are abused for special interest and people no longer seek unity. Law is twisted to suit the rich. Family values are being demolished. Religion is being bastardized. And, for what? “Oh .. you’re religion offends my religion … so we’re destroying yours for mine.” That’s NOT the equality that America represented. Media, politics, and manipulators driving racial wedges is a return to the old world. People are no longer “living”. They are quickly descending into a state of “pretending” to live … day by day, suppressing the sadness and stress, filling their days with whatever is popular or distracting … and the idea of hope is being lost to a zombified people, consumed by despair.
And, finally, Life. Our health has been placed in the hands of those who would just as soon kill us to relieve their financial burdens as hook us into addictions for profit or screw up our health to maintain their profit margin. Our lives have been threatened to the point of apathy, afraid of our own government. The criminals who harm our children and our nation walk free while the innocent are jailed all because the leadership is rotted and the people have become too weak and afraid to fight back. Life is supposed to be about families and the right to raise a healthy child – which is under so much attack that even globally, population decreases are already happening (all the while, those who choose gender alternatives think they’re being empowered because their human ego need for recognition and fame (aka all the talent shows) is being fulfilled rather than seeing how heavily they are being used and played to fulfill the agenda of the corrupt). Already, the people fear to stand against the government (not “protests”, but sitting idly by while Antifa burns down buildings, children are being sex trafficked, illegal immigrants cross the border freely, and cruel and vile people run the country without a single person using the Constitution to defend America). This is no different than a tyranny. Kings who took advantage of and screwed their own people. Remember, before America, religion was oppressed, people were forced to abandon ideas for “special interest” groups that bought and paid the king, and while people could still work, worship, and travel, it was all under the thumb of a select few who decided how, where, why, and when. Worse – we’re now seeing what happens when the “globalists” unleash their media-induced fear mongering. The “covid” pandemic – is no pandemic (not in comparison to any other actual virus or illness). It was always just a way to usher in a new era of manipulation – for the Corporate, greedy liars and destroyers of humanity.
Soon, I fear, that no matter what America’s future looks like – it will be a twisted, cancerous wreck kept on life support for another hundred years solely to fill the pockets of the wealthy, fat monsters who have taken control. There is “always” a chance that things will turn around – but it will take a very, long time to do so. Those corporations, politicians, law enforcement, leaders, and so on, who have seized power, money, and control … will not soon or easily surrender it. Our elections will continue to be fraught with corruption and people will continue to let these monsters run right over the top of them, telling themselves that they can just “wish it to the cornfield” (like “voting” on corrupt voting machines during gerrymandering and illegal voting or “writing their Senator” as if that Senator would stop the whole of the government to fix an issue that they’ve already had plenty of time to fix). Vile criminals will get off scott-free because they have money and influence while the poor will continue to be beaten around for the pleasure of those who “practice” justice. Medicine and science will remain stumped, taxes will continue to be drained, and the last of what America has left: “Life”, will be lost to the soulless zombies who are “pretending” to live.
If you try to see what’s happening: you’ll be labeled a conspirator and attacked. If you try to act, you’ll be assaulted – by the people around you. If you speak out, thinking that it “should” matter, you’ll be disappointed because the fire in peoples’ hearts are barely lit. Maybe you see it differently and frankly, I hope you do. That means there is still a little fire left. But, hope is a dangerous emotion. While it can carry you through dark times, it can also distract you from the reality of your own apathy and failure to answer the call. Hope … on social media … is also not hope. It’s just social media. Look – a LOT of great stuff still happens. A LOT of wonderful, little things take place every day. But, America was not meant to be a flickering light that occasionally shines in the darkness. She was supposed to be a beacon, big, beautiful and bright, shining across all the world, 24/7.
I don’t have an answer for any of this. I don’t know if I’m overthinking it. But, based upon what I’m seeing (and at least thousands of others have … see the quotes at the end), it seems like America is “the child who was never given a fair chance,” and now, she’s falling because no one wants to be accountable or save her. No one seems to remember what being a “Patriot” means, or why they still have the 2A. Just remember – everyone falls. But, it’s how you get back up, that matters. How do you want America to look when she rises back up? A pungent mass of cancerous waste … or that dream the founding fathers had for her?
Sorry for the depressing post. But, sometimes, you just gotta say the truth.
Thanks for reading.
“If America ever falls, it will be an inside job“. –Paul Harvey (It’s happening now.)
“… so long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious and otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men.” – Voltarine de Cleyre (Wake up sleepy Americans!)

“. . . in America, we have achieved the Orwellian prediction – enslaved, the people have been programmed to love their bondage and are left to clutch only mirage-like images of freedom, its fables and fictions. The new slaves are linked together by vast electronic chains of television that imprison not their bodies but their minds. Their desires are programmed, their tastes manipulated, their values set for them. ” Gerry Spence (From Freedom to Slavery)
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” –Abraham Lincoln
