Independence Day: What the He!! HAPPENED to America?

“We Have Become Such Grumbling Drones — Powerless, Passive, And Frankly A Bit Pathetic. Our Government Is Openly Trying To Strip Away Core Privacy Protections and Increase Police Powers At Every Level. Yet, We Have Fallen Victim” to Stupid Divide-And-Conquer Tactics

Call me old fashion …

I love America …

The Constitution and the Bill of Rights …

The vision of the Founding Fathers …

The “can do” American spirit …

Americans’ ingenuity and creativity.

WHAT the h@!! HAPPENED to us???

As one of the nation’s leading Constitutions experts  – George Washington University law school professor Jonathan Turley – notes:

I am still amazed that we have come to this point of rapidly declining feelings of freedom and widespread dissociation with our political system. It is not the failure of our constitutional system and only partially the failure of our leaders.  It is largely a failure in ourselves that we have become such grumbling drones — powerless, passive, and frankly a bit pathetic. Our government is openly trying to strip away core privacy protections and increase police powers at every level. Yet, we have fallen victim to the “blue state” and “red state” mentality — allowing politicians to constantly deflect criticism by referring to the other side as the greater evil. The result is predictable and … incredibly depressing.

    Personally, I just feel sick to my stomach watching people light off fireworks and going to watch the shows and rah rah rah all red white and blue. It’s ignorant. There’s nothing to celebrate. This is like a day of mourning for me. I understand if people have a family and kids and want to celebrate, but this day needs some new aspects to it. Like education about the constitution. That’s what we should be honoring, not the flag.

  • Fed up with the FED !

    Being that I’ve never had any children of my own, I don’t think I’d be out of line in saying to those who do… How important it is they understand the meaning of this holiday.
    May I suggest you take the time today to share with those you know, and love this information.
    Doing so might even get you to realize this is a nation that’s built on individuals like that of yourselves, participation ?

    We can trace Americans’ discontent to one factor–the loss of property.

    There is no private property in America, according to John Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute.

    Look at the rise of property taxation. We are little more than wage slaves on a huge plantation. We have reverted to a feudal system.

      That’s in the works. But we need a lot more pain before we cry out to Him to save us.
      It’s all in His time. He knows better.He does what He does for the best.

  • Right to the point. And it truly is a sad state of affairs we have allowed to happen. Too fat and happy… and thinking we are “the shit” led us to believe it could NEVER happen here.

    Yet… sure enough… here we sit… in the impossible situation that we had been war5ned about since the very beginning of our founding. Even Ben Franklin said it was highly unlikely that we’d be able to keep what they had crafted!

    The deliberations of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 were held in strict secrecy. Consequently, anxious citizens gathered outside Independence Hall when the proceedings ended in order to learn what had been produced behind closed doors. The answer was provided immediately. A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.” (Benjamin Franklin)
