What comes next?
November 9, 2012 ~ The world saw a great nation cease to exist a few days ago. Only a handful of people even noticed. Funny thing is — the world was watching as America breathed her last breath — and still — they did not see it.
The human race was told over two thousand years ago what to watch for in the decline and collapse of a nation.
“And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand”. (From the Bible, Matthew 12:25.)
Jesus had the temerity to tell the truth — and we killed him for it.
The schism that slices through America today has been widening since the 19th century. Little by little, decade-by-decade, year-by-year it has continued to get ever wider and ever deeper. It has nothing to do with geography. Unlike America’s divide in the 19th century, it has nothing to do with slavery… and, yet, it has everything to do with slavery.
What, you say? Didn’t we put the slavery issue to rest with a war in the 1860’s? The truthful answer is NO, we did not. We put to rest the issue of whether or not a man could hold another man in bondage in this country. What we did not put to rest, however, is the question of whether this country’s government could hold its citizens in bondage.
If only modern Americans knew something of their history they could see what has happened to America and why. Unfortunately, Americans today are as dumb as a post when it comes to the history of their own country.
Allow me to enlighten a few of you:
The founders of this country intended to set up a federal government with very little power. They intended the government to have only the power the citizens allowed it to have.
Almost instantly the power struggle began between those who wanted a strong central government and those who wanted strong states and a weak central government. After all, it was the states that created the Federal Government… as a utility (an agent) of the states. Not the other way around. Look it up.
In 1860 there were 33 states in the so-called United States of America. I do mean “so-called” because they were anything but UNITED.
By the spring of 1861 thirteen of those states had had enough of being “dictated-to” by a oligarchic federal government wielding powers the constitution did not grant it, and … as the US Constitution did not forbid it (as had the Articles of Confederation)… they took their leave of the United States. They created a country of their own with a constitution (mostly copied from the original constitution of the US) and they became a separate country.
A few Americans today actually know what caused that split. Only a handful of Americans understand what the ensuing war was about.
The history of that period in America has been revised, rewritten, and sanitized until the truth is so deeply hidden that only the most highly motivated seekers of truth can find it.
A few million Southern Americans still feel the sting of being forced, at the point of a government bayonet, to be a part of a country their ancestors had forsaken in order to create a true constitutional, representative, republic in the image of the government the Founding Fathers of America had given the United States.
A few million Americans who either live in, have lived in, or hail from, the only portion of this country to ever be invaded, conquered, and occupied by a foreign power, understand what is happening in America today. We understand it not because we learned it in school. No. We understand it because we learned it from the stories our families have handed down from generation to generation — and from our own research into what happened to a country which had, less than a hundred years before, won it’s independence from the “Mother Country” (Great Britain).
We are scattered all over America today… north, south, east, west, all over. We saw where America was headed when Barack Obama was elected the first time. And we recognize what happened on November 6th as the death of America. We fear for our fellow Americans because they/we are not ready for the cost of what is about to happen to America — none of us are.
What America is facing, in the next few years, will make the American Civil War seem like a Sunday School picnic.
Yes, I am referring to SLAVERY. Voluntary slavery to begin with… then involuntary slavery… when it is then too late. The socially accepted word for it these days is… SOCIALISM. I, on the other hand, prefer to call it by its REAL name: Marxism!
America made a decision on November 6th to forsake freedom in favor of Socialism/Marxism. Oh, it was a decision freely made. It was democracy in action. But, you see, democracy is a dangerous thing in the hands of the uneducated, the ignorant, and those whose only interest is the accumulation of power through the efforts of “Useful Idiots.”
As millions trooped to the polls there was a never a question of whether America should stay free, or whether America should give up the freedom so many have fought, bled, and died for, and assume the yoke and chains of slavery under socialism/Marxism. Nope. It was all about what half of America could get — free — from the other half of America that actually works and supports them.
Our Marxist President, Obama, knew that when you rob from Peter to pay Paul, you can ALWAYS count on the support of PAUL! He played them like a finely tuned violin — and they came through for him– and in doing so –he — and they — murdered a country.
Many of us, myself included, actually thought there were enough real freedom-loving Americans to save America from the hell of self-inflicted slavery. We were WRONG! I was WRONG!
The sub-culture of societal parasites, of social leaches, has now become the dominant culture (or class) in America. When that happens to any nation, it ensures the immediate decline and death of that nation.
It is no longer a question of whether or not America can survive. America is already dead.
This new dominant class in America, the parasite class, deliberately chose Socialism/Marxism. See, they don’t care that SOCIALISM/MARXISM IS SLAVERY. They don’t care that under socialism they will give up all their rights… all their freedom… for what they believe will be security guaranteed by the Central Government. They have no concept that someone, somewhere, has to pay for all their free goodies from the government. If they did understand –they wouldn’t care. Even if they understood they were killing their country — they would not care. After all, they are the people who burn down their own neighborhoods to spite the establishment. They see little difference in burning down their neighborhood and their country.
It is clear after the election that today’s crop of parasitic Americans are willing to give up everything, including their freedom and liberty for the promise of security. They simply do not care that their fellow Americans are bleeding and dying to guarantee that freedom and liberty for them. They do not care that the Americans who went before them gave their lives to secure freedom from the chains of slavery for many of them. They do not care that Socialism/Marxism will not raise them up, only tear their fellow Americans down.
