I. Frustration, frustration, frustration.
Daily I see the frustration over immigration, the lost of jobs and the overall decline of America.
But, the biggest false hope of all is good people with good intentions trying to do what they
think will solve the problem. Sure, if it makes one feel better I don't see any harm in people
exercising their rights. But, in my view its like pissing on a house fire to put it out. Nothing
less than the government giving up its sugar daddy provider role is going to free this nation
to save itself.
This country was designed for the government to be dependent on the people, not the
people dependent on the government. In my view this whole nations survival is at stake.
Name calling and false blaming are not going to save us. Solving the immigration problem
and good jobs won't save us. Like the cartoon writer said, "I've met the enemy, and its me."
Our Greatest enemy is us as a do for me dependent socialist minded people. It's true, "All
great nations fall from within." Right now most people in this country can't see a problem
and don't think our survival is at stake.
Sometimes I think my great wisdom is a curse, I see the true problem and answer so clearly it
is scary. Also, I've been preaching it for over ten years, but nobody seem to be listening. It is
no longer about being a liberal or conservative because just like the liberals, most
conservative can't see the answer either. A hundred years ago the effort for daily survival
made just about all people conservative with strong survival instincts. Not so anymore, we
have a nation of do for me dependents with weak survival instincts.
Besides, many liberals have been converted overnight to a conservative when a mugger
slammed them upside the head or cleaned out their house. The only thing that is going to
save this great nation at this late stage is for the government to get the hell out of the provider
business now, not tomorrow, period. Sure, thats radical, extreme, kooky, and maybe insane,
but nothing else is going to save this great nation. There is no painless way to save this
nation. A collapse is going to happen one way or another because our government can't
carry its over burden provider load much longer, a rebirth is going to take place.
At lease if we do the privatising ourselves we will be in control, otherwise, when things
collapses we will be at the mercy of overpowering circumstances. The mentality today tends
to be me first, I want mine, I want it all, to hell with the country. Too few people today will
place country above self interest. Sure, I understand privatising is risky, unpredictable, and
may destroy the economy but as long as we have food, shelter, and warneth we will survive
and regroup, to do nothing is to perish or lose our freedom.
It's going to cause mass hardships that will affect me and everyone. But, its not like we have
a choice, to me, it is the height of insanity and denial to just standby fiddling and do nothing
in the face of approaching doom. Folks, I'm a writer and have said some cold hard chilly
things. I believe I'm right, but, I can only hope that I'm wrong, I mean no harm to anyone, I'm
just answering the call to do my duty no matter how small to help save my beloved country.
Regarding my great wisdom, "To more is given more is expected." You don't have to agree
with me, but, thank you for hearing me out. Glory be to God.
