I Welcome the End of the American Empire

I Welcome the End of the American Empire

Blasphemy? Unpatriotic? Anti-American? Yeah, all of the above to you morons who have no clue as to what we (America) is suppose to be about. You have surrendered your minds to the mindless yet, persuasive racists & fear mongers. I grew up believing that America was the champion of democracy and freedom, and the gradual realization that “our” government didn’t give a damn about freedom or democracy around the globe, blew my mind. I know only too well that those of you, who may read these words, may jump to the wrong conclusion. And the only thing I can say is that if you will give me a fair hearing, you may come to an understanding of what I’m trying to say?

This is not a blanket condemnation. But rather, a desperate attempt to wake the sleeping public. Have you ever thought about what America is doing/involved in around the world? Have you ever wondered about why America has become such a hated country? Do you believe as my mother did, or as the Bushwhacker said, “they are just jealous of our freedom?”

Why don’t we take a look at our so called freedom? Let’s see, since 9/11, we no longer have the right to know what we’re accused of when the authorities arrest us. We also no longer have the right to have a lawyer to represent us. We are now spied upon by our own government twenty four hours a day. This is called freedom and democracy. We’re not suppose to connect the dots as to our military “adventures” in foreign lands and the fact that this i.e. the repressive measures, they are taking here in America, the land of the free, are the same as the measures they are taking in the nations we are “liberating.”

If you don’t see echoes of George Orwell, you are willfully blind. Write me off as just another paranoid, conspiracy theorist but I fear that Fahrenheit 451 will become a reality. I am tired and I am not willing to put more effort into this piece because I know that the vast majority of Americans can’t spare the time to read such trivial matters when Dancing with the Stars is waiting.

The United States has been bullying and betraying the principles and values that we are suppose to be about, most obviously since the end of World War II, but in fact, for far longer than that. The hubris and greed of the corporate CEOs and their political lapdogs, has made America the most despised and feared nation on earth. Think about it, if we were truly a nation that fought to protect & promote freedom and democracy, why are so many nations fearful of us?
