President Barack Obama said “we will fundamentally transform America.” Vice-President Joe Biden said just days ago that a New World Order where “China and Mongolia must prosper” must be formed. The smily VP failed to mention anything about the nation he is sworn by oath to serve prospering. Instead, he implied that we as a nation must be brought down so that others come up. There is not a single aspect of American culture and life that is not under immense attack in the year 2013. A great change is taking place, but where does this change take us? What needed to be changed? Plenty is wrong with our nation that needs fundamentally changed, but the system of government and the culture are not on that list. What needs changing is the same battle that was fought to begin with, which was the overthrow of tyrannical rule over America. This time by mega-sized global corporations, the world’s banking cartels and the vastly corrupted politically elite class that does their bidding. My fellow citizens, you think we are fighting Barack Obama? You think we are fighting George Bush? Dick Cheney? Liberalism? Conservatives? No, you are fighting something far greater, far more sinister, and it is a foe that leaves no “winners” in America, no matter what side you think you are on. Some think that if they kill off gay marriage the nation will be saved. Others think that if we rid ourselves of God in our culture we can progress forward. Still more think that if that ol evil whitey and his Christian white families are destroyed there will be real freedom for all. There is no end to the battles being fought among ourselves, by design mind you, while the real battle goes forward nearly completely unimpeded. We are losing and almost finished. In historical terms, we are in Valley Forge right now. The winter’s cold is killing off what is left of us and our will to fight nearly extinguished. The path to victory requires a great bravery, not of one man such as George Washington crossing the Delaware, but of a mass of Washington’s this time. Are there enough still with eyes remaining to see and ears to hear? Just what exactly are we fighting for anyway? What the hell is America?
To answer that correctly would require a series of lengthy books. I have a blog and need to keep it reasonably short enough so that my attention-span deprived reader might hang in there with me. That is not an insult to any reader, for I include myself in the same boat, because we have been trained to not be able to pay attention to anything of substance for any serious period of time. Yet, I will try to point out what we should fight for in a brief explanation.
From the very start America has been a contradiction between strong-willed, rugged individual freedom vs. corrupting greed manifested into controlling tyrannical power. Most of us, left, right and center, consider ourselves on the side of the good guys. The word freedom is claimed by all. We are all wrong. The left and the right are both controlled by the same people, and the center is where we all go looking for something that remotely makes sense. That is where we find the lies we are sold in order to keep up our delusion that we are indeed on the side of the good guys. Once the lie is purchased with our belief, either extreme goes about doing what they were going to do anyway for whichever particular purpose required in that case, and we move just that much closer to defeat. So, exactly who is pulling these puppet strings? Who has been pulling America’s strings from the beginning? What was it that we shook off to create such a place despite the odds against it? For throughout human history, man has never been free to rule himself. Except here in America. Do you actually believe the remaining power brokers in the world like/liked that about us? That their own people saw the shining city on the hill and flocked to it risking everything to get here? No, they didn’t/don’t and have been subverting the process for as long as we have been trying to build it.
When John Smith settled Jamestown the first rule was “he that will not work shall not eat.” That was America. We are all in this together. We are not going to be weak, we are not going to shrivel up in fear, and we are not going to pull the weight of those that refuse to share equally in the burden. Those who want to settle here and work in common purpose, we share equally in the bounty. If you want to take without giving, if you want to place yourself above the cause, you are not welcome and will die here. In many ways, it was the ultimate COLLECTIVE mindset, only in reverse of what Marxism and communism degraded it to. What we saw in the 20th century and today is a bastard version of the collective spirit those first settlers came with. Today we are taught that we should be weak, we should be fearful and that the burden belongs to our masters who will take it for us. Sit back, be ignorant, and die quietly. The bounty to be shared among a few deemed worthy by a few. This is the direction we are being pulled.
So who founded America? Who is to blame for all the evil we are told America wrought? Europe. Specifically England, France and Spain. When a proud American speaks of their country fondly, what is the first argument used to refute their admiration? Slavery. Who brought slavery? Who benefitted? Europe. Who threw it away in less than 100 years once the tyranny of Europe was defeated? America. That is not taught in history classes in America anymore. It was the rich, white and evil American founders that created slavery. Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Madison and Franklin. Evil men. Evil intentions. That is the greatest lie sold by the enemies of America. It was the Europeans that ruthlessly gathered up human beings on the African coast and shipped them across the Atlantic to the Americas. It was the Europeans that set up the triangular slave trade routes, and it was the Europeans that reaped all the benefits. The Europeans in the “new world” of the northeast colonies and the Europeans in England. The south? The south was where the fertile farmland was, the people kept ignorant and the slaves owned by few, who not only ruled over their plantations but over the surrounding population as well. They sent the criminals and dregs of society to the south when the colonies were being formed. Why? Because they could be controlled easier by the intellectual elite of the northern colonies. Georgia and the Carolinas were where these bodies were sent to settle. My own family draws its heritage from two brothers that were captured poaching on royal land in England. A crime normally punishable by death. Yet, needing volunteers to settle the colonies, they were given the option to take their families to Carolina. Obviously, they chose the latter option. Slavery was a thousands year old tool of commerce to the Europeans and never was an American ideal.
What did the settlers want? What is at the heart of why we fought a revolution for independence? They just wanted a chance to live a life free from the shackles of imposed unfair rule from European monarchies. A chance to live life the way they thought was best, and to benefit based on their own merits and work ethic. Many came for religious freedom to worship God in their own ways. Many came because they had no other choice in life. Some came for adventure and some came for opportunity. The evils that followed from Europe were imported and once independence was gained, the people of the colonies put together the most brilliant documents in the history of mankind to make SURE that those evils would have nowhere to flourish in this new nation. The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The only way America could ever lose herself would be if the people themselves decided it to be so. The “battle” for America ever since has been to get her to do just that.
The 1800’s, America’s first full century, were when America began to create her own triumphs and own evils. Freedom and mass prosperity vs. greed and consolidated power. All of these battles, whether it be slavery, westward expansion, the war against Native Americans, or the consolidation of financial power that raged into the next century, shaped the future that we live in now. The good guys, the American spirit of personal freedom to rule over himself with rights given to us by a non-specific God, and not some cabal of powerful men, slowly but surely have been losing over the decades. In the year 2013, we are so deflated from that original, wonderful spirit, we deemed the 21st century the “Chinese Century” and our leaders tell us that we must help them prosper. America is once again headed back to colonialism. Europe wants her share back, China wants our resources, and the rest of the world just wants us out-of-the-way so they can terrorize their people the way they always have, with nowhere for them left to run to. We are being broken down. We are told our documents were evil and for the benefit of the rich white man. We are told we must give them up and we must obey. In other words, we are right back to square one.
So who are you? It doesn’t matter if you are a Christian, an atheist, a Jew, a communist, a socialist, a witch, a homosexual or a Muslim. If you are here in America to be free to be just those things and millions more, without imposing them by force unto the others, and if you are here to pull your own weight and reap your own benefits, then you are an American. Give me liberty or give me death. That is America. We need laws. We need rules. They can be adjusted and formed over the years, and cultural changes that cause abuses can be corrected, but the one thing we can simply never allow…is for our “precious documents” to be degraded and shred. That is the end game. We must recognize the threat and we must engage in this war that so far has been one-sided and devastating. All of us should own a flag that says “don’t tread on me” and not just one singled-out segment of the population. For if you are an American, that should be the first damn thing out of your mouth.
We can create a society and a community that is as close to heaven on earth as humans can come, but first we must recognize who we are. We must own up to what we have done, or allowed done, and we must condemn those responsible. The greatest “sleeping giant” in world history is the American people. The greatest fear to the tiny elite of the world? If God forbid that sleeping giant ever wakes up. Wake up. Today.
