Wake up

By From page A5 | February 27, 2013

EDITOR:

Folks, whatever your political persuasion, we as citizens of this planet must come together and step out of our comfort zone to protest the big government control and manipulation that is going on. Democrats and Republicans are like the crips and the bloods. Their fight is never for the protection or well-being of citizens, but about ego, money, power plays, turf wars (resources) and corporate interests. Instilling fear in the American public to gain more control has been the agenda for many years. It is working well.

After 9/11, Bush quickly put into place the Patriot Act. Fanning the terrorism flames has been going on for 12 years now. Convincing American’s that terrorists are everywhere — your neighbors, the guy who owns a local mini mart, confusing religions and terrorism. Yet the U.S. spends billions to support terrorism, to fight terrorism, to arm terrorists, to train terrorists and then to kill terrorists. We provide arms to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Israel, Syris, Mexican drug cartels, Egypt and more. We occupy 153 countries around the world. How would you feel to be occupied? How comfortable would you feel to see foreign troops on your streets, with weapons, flying their drones overhead, driving their tanks through town? Well you may soon find out.

There are over 400,000 foreign troops on our soil now in training with our military. Many people all over the U.S. have seen foreign tanks and soldiers driving through the towns, doing drills, and their tanks driving on their roads. The U.S. has been blessed to not have a war on its soil since the Civil Qar. But with the schizophrenic foreign policies we have in place, you can bet we will soon have WWIII on our soil.

The U.S. has sold most of the waterways and ports along the U.S. borders to China and Russia allowing them to cruise around our country at will with their submarines, aircraft carriers, etc. Why has this all happened? Because Americans don’t want to know what really goes on in politics. They want to go to work, come home and watch reality shows and pretend the good life will never end. We deserve whatever we get if we are not willing to fight for liberty and freedom. Drop the limited position of Democrat and Republican and think as a citizen who values freedom and liberty — not from the position of what the government can do for me. Begin educating yourself — not from the viewpoint of the mainstream media but from the many alternative media outlets that reveal the truth.

Fear has been instilled in Americans. We have been programmed to turn to the government to protect us from everything. And the Government has used events like 9/11 to quickly gain more control, eliminate parts of the U.S. Constitution and posse comitatus (limiting the Federal government’s power and use of military to enforce state laws). We put more and more people in prison every year for non-crimes. Now many cities are paying citizens money to turn in your neighbors, to spy on your neighbors. There is a fine line from wanting the government to protect you and a concentration camp. Ask German citizens who suffered in Nazi Germany. The weapons ban and Second Amendment attack is not to save children, it is to disarm citizens.

But hey, go back to sleep if you like. You will jolted awake when foreign troops knock down your door — or even our own military and police.
