I wish I didn’t have to talk about this, but I feel that someone has to. Part of America’s decline is due to the way that we interact with one another. We have come a long way, at least that is what we want to believe, and our government has fostered this idea until lately. The truth is yes we have made progress in some areas, such as the crime rate. In 1960, for example, violent crime was 16,090,000 in America. Homicide was 510,000, while property crime was around 172,600,000. These statistics became markedly worse in 1985 with violent crime at 55,660,000, homicide at 800,000, and property crime at 4,650,000,000.
Now I know you are asking, “Where have we made progress?” Well all three categories went down by 2010 to; violent crime 40,360,000 / homicide 480,000 / property crime 2,941,000,000. As you can see we are better than in 1985, but still worse than 1960. Although the trend is going in the right direction, we still have a long way to go to get back to the 1960 statistics.
The only reason I’m using 1960 statistics is because that is the year that I became aware of the world around me, beside my immediate location. Now what I see, in America, is the unwillingness to communicate with one another. Each side wants the other to just believe them, and fall in line. Nobody is willing to have a realistic discussion, in a calm and respectful way. “You either do it my way or I will bury you.” This, I believe, has come about due to how we, as human beings, react to our environment. We are living in a fast paced world, and it is getting faster all the time. We can communicate at a faster pace, but our understanding is still at the same rate. What I mean by this is; the time it takes us to proses information, and develop an opinion, is at the same rate, at least, as it was in the 60’s, but we want to develop our opinion as quickly as we receive the information. Because of this we have a tendency to use the opinions of the people we look up to, rather than develop our own. Some call this pear pressure, but I call it laziness.
The effect of this has been manifesting itself in all of us for years. Along with this we have outside influences fighting for our hearts and minds. One place we see this manifested is in our government. As we have seen in the past 3 ½ years, our government officials can’t work together. In fact even if they have the same basic beliefs in a problem, they still can’t come together behind a solution. It is almost as if they think they have to have opposing ideas. When you couple this with the idea of moving away from our long held form of government, you can see why you would have a great divide in the way of thinking.
So because of this, everyone in their rush to get their ideas heard and excepted, they are using tactics that have only been seen in countries like Russia, China, Germany, etc. What I am talking about is the tactics of the socialist to divide and concur. Alexander Dubcek once said, “Communism will never go away, rather it will have a new face and in 50 years we will rise up and smash you.” Well I believe that day has come. They are trying to smash our Constitutional form of government. They are taking some of the American people, whom they have been indoctrinating for years in the “give me government”, and turning them against the rest of their brothers and sisters. While I am writing this on 6/26/2012, on my TV is several groups formed by different civil rights leaders that are in alliance to the socialist movement, telling us that the Holder (fast and furious) issue is directly tied to racism. They are saying that the Republican Party is using this toward voter suppression. Case in point Socialist do not want the state of Florida to purge illegal and dead voters from the rolls. Why? Because then they won’t be able to use these people to cast fraudulent votes. This is just a smoke screen, something that the socialists do quite well; after all they have had hundreds of years of practice. The sad thing is socialism hasn’t worked ever.
If you haven’t noticed by now, I have been substituting Democrat with socialist. This is not a mistake, for the majority of the socialist, and the socialist movement is being forwarded by the Democratic Party. I would make a call to any Democrats that wish to take back their party; start denouncing what the new socialist party is doing, and see if you can get enough support from good upstanding American Democrats. I would also ask that the Republicans do the same, for if we have socialist in the Democratic Party, it stands to reason we will have them in all Parties.
It is time that we come together against this threat to America. If you do not believe we are under siege, then I would ask you to take a good look around talk with people on both sides, do research on your own. There are enough facts out there, if you look for them, to help you make up your mind. If you truly are an American, you have to believe in the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, as the rule of law that has worked very well for America for 236 years.
Another thing; We have come a long way on civil rights, yes we have some more to go, but we can’t let a bunch of radical thugs encouraged by the socialist in our government, intimidate us. Some are even threatening our lives; in a post on Twitter Monday, the St. Pete/Tampa New Black Panther Party said the following: “Kill these racist honkeys (sic), these crackers, these pigs, these pink people. It has been long overdue!” Now thank goodness this is not the sentimate of the majority of the black communities in America, after all they face the same fate as us all.
My fellow Americans; it is a sad time in the history of our great nation. With everything else going on today, we also have other problems that are hurting us all. Our youth, in growing numbers, have lost respect for our nation, their elders, and the law. This too is just a few comparatively speaking, but a few is too many. We need to bring this country back to the values that made it strong. We need to stop the outside influence from changing these beliefs; after all they are the foundation of America. We need to move closer to God and Country. We need to deal with those who are trying to defeat America from within. We need to take back our government; you know the one that we are supposed to run. As a nation we need to figure out how to deal with those who are working hard to destroy us, but deal with them we must. To leave them unaffected by this tyranny, would be to allow the tyranny to return. Anybody that believes that, based on race, someone should be destroyed, doesn’t have a place in a society that is based on “All men are created equal.”
I am not condoning violence, but sometimes violence is the only way. We do not want to be like France was before the Second World War, where they were taught that they were better than their enemies because they believed in nonviolence. They were taken by the Germans if you have forgotten. We must do everything within our power to resist this new socialist movement upon our shores. We must band together, and work PEACEFULLY, toward defeating this enemy, but if peaceful means do not work, we must be able and willing to use any means available to us. We can’t let America go down without a fight. Too many of our brothers and sisters have died to make this a free country, based on the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, to let them die in vain. As for me I am willing to put these views out there, even thou I know that it could cause me and my family harm. That is how strongly I believe, and how strongly I know that some of you also believe, unlike some in our government who can’t even address our nations flag with the respect it deserves. Let us do this as PEACEFULLY as we can, but be prepared to do even more. Let us stand together all, Black, White, Red, Yellow, Brown, as Americans, strong and fearless, and take up the challenge ahead.
