Hello, fellow bloggies. Thought I’d take a moment and wish you all a Happy and Safe Fourth of July. I hope you enjoy your families and really ponder this day.
On July 2, 1776, Congress voted for America to be independent of Great Britain.
Why? Because once upon a time people, no one had the opportunity to be whatever they wanted to be. No one could own land because only a few minority were rich enough to do so. No middle class existed. You were either poor or rich. If you were poor, you were allotted no advancement in anything, not even education. Not to mention, taxes were sky high on the impoverished to keep them down.
So our forefathers came up with the following major lines to the Declaration of Independence. It’s the meat of the whole thing.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”
But yet, it seems our government has aligned itself with the old establishment of doing business. They’ve been busy fighting for control over other country’s oil and poppies, while depleting us of our ability to be employed.
When Clinton was in office, he signed us into the NAFTA Agreement. The hand of that document has reached into the future ripping jobs out of this country and placing them in the hands of China and India.
Obama came promising change. I believe he was put in office to paint a blissful picture to the dumb-downed Americans as to why we should go along with any of the government’s hair brained schemes.
Little by little, we’ve been spoon fed a load of toxic crap-processed foods, chemically treated produce, and tap water, too-what a pun, huh? We’ve been too busy trying to survive and keep what little we’ve got.
No longer are we self-sufficient. We depend on grocery stores like Publix for food. We depend on doctors and pharmaceuticals to heal us. We depend on failing public schools to teach our kids while we slave away all day at a stressful job to keep the food on the table and the roofs over our heads.
Most of us have lost our health insurance and our 401-Ks. Our vacations and sick days are now threatened. Employers expect more and pay less.
People are loosing their homes and living on the streets. The Liar Loans used into luring people into buying homes they couldn’t afford was a trick by the government to take over America’s land.
If we as a nation can’t stand up to the career politicians and take back the purpose of this country-freedom-one day our children will be enslaved. They will not have the creative ability to think and do for themselves.
Think about it! The future is looking bleak. Our children will live in poverty without a home, proper food for their families, and formal education could be limited to the wealthy only.
So bloggy friends I’ll end my soap box stance with a song from Muse and leave you with this question. What are we going to do about this?
PS Didn’t mean to be so glum but….
