The American public, the ones that matter, who pay the bills and supply the loot to the other half of the nation have held their collective breaths for all these years. They have suffered indignities of word and deed by the corrupt government of the United States.
Hard-working entrepreneurs and small business owners struggled under the heavy burden of the economic collapse. Their futures were destroyed by the policies of the government either through the Community Reinvestment Act, which led to the mortgage scandals, or the TARP and Stimulus policies. TARP bailed out and rewarded the banks involved in the mortgage scandals and the Stimulus merely protected labor unions and government agencies with a little trickling over for the private sector, 1 or 2% when all of it needed to go to the private sector.
Religious organizations have been abused and debased by Obamacare mandates.
Energy companies (coal and oil) have been preyed upon by Obama Administration regulation and aggressive, punitive over-implementation of existing regulation.
The health care industry, including health insurance companies, are about to understand the full impact of Obamacare without the silver-lining promised to them to ensure their cooperation. Obama doesn't need to coerce or manipulate them any longer.
Employers across the nation will now struggle with all of the mandates and regulations that once seemed a long ways off before the re-election of Barack Obama. Layoffs and loss of benefits will hit those few who still paid the bills in this nation.
America has held its breath in hope that it would not all come to pass. Yes, there are those brilliant minds who still see a way to manipulate the system, but their intelligent efforts will not hold a candle to doctrinaire bureaucrats who don't care about the ultimate economic health of the nation. In fact, we are in the hands of those who would like to crash the system to reset it on a different footing, a socialist, or Marxists footing.
Political change almost never occurs outside of an economic disaster.
They want political change and understand the logic of the previous statement, they know it better than any capitalist could. It is not in the capitalist's vocabulary to destroy capital. The answer to everything in a capitalist frame of mind is profit that yields all answers to economic issues. To the Marxists currently in control of our government, economics are a means to a political end.
It is finally time to exhale and recognize that there is no solution to the continuing spiral downward into an economic abyss other than to engage those who are determined to accomplish it.
Our government has been undergoing the slowest revolution in world history. There is no hard line of demarcation between what was and what is. Everything crucial to a free America has been slowly evolved out of existence. Our rights, guaranteed by the Constitution, have eroded into nothingness, from sturdy boulders to the tiniest particle of sand. Capitalism, once the strength of the republic, has now become the scapegoat for socialist corruption. Our religion, once the backbone of American society, is hunkered down, fearful and ridiculed. It is in a state of panic.
One would think, with all of these institutions being attacked at once, finally in the curtain call of the republic, that they would bond together, to lean on one another, to recognize their roles in the upcoming fight and side with those who would give them strength. Instead, they crawl to the master on both knees begging to be spared the next indignity.
Exhale, forget the hopes you once had, they are gone, snuffed out. Grip the spear with vigor and reach out to those on your flanks. Recognize the battle is not your own, but engaged in across the nation in small, meaningless ways by individuals awaiting the groundswell of opposition.
You did not lose your job, the government took it. You did not lose your right to your own conscience, the government took it. You did not lose your company, the government took it. You did not lose your rights, the government took them. You did not lose your vote, the government took it.
No government true to the Constitution, legally following the precepts of our founding, could have taken all of these things from you. Only a corruption of the government could. We are not anti-government, we are anti-corruption. Our only allegiance is to a properly functioning, Constitution-abiding government. Where the ministers of this corruption appeal to patriotism is blasphemy. Patriotism is a dedication to the founding principles and intended purpose of government, which is to secure the lives, liberty, property and pursuit of happiness for its people.
I ask you this: Is that what is happening now?
Exhale, grip your spear and march to the aid of your countrymen.
