My Greatest Fear

There is apparently a book out that was just released on paperback called Armed Madhouse By Greg Palast. The link is a book review by Mark Groubert on C&L and it brings to the forefront my biggest fear in the coming year.

The line that works best for me is the following:
Anti-conspiracy theorists in the media kept demanding a ‘smoking gun’. There is no smoking gun – just thousands of spent rounds of ammunition.

The numbers don't lie, the Democrats won the 2000 and 2004 Presidential Elections. Both times the vote was stolen by the Republican Party, then I'm sure they saw it as doing what was best for America. Perhaps it was even a vision by God that told you to lead America to providence.

It frightens the hell out of me that this next election could also be stolen and those in power in the Democratic party will do nothing to stop it. I think Hunter must have saw some of this coming, it very well be the reason he left us, he couldn't stand the bullshit anymore and he was too old to fight it.

This country has been hi-jacked by a power that has been unseen by most people, but that is because they are blind. One merely has to open his eyes and see the corruption and hypocrisy going on inside this beltway. From far away folks merely shrug their shoulders and tell themselves that this is merely the way things work. People blindly follow what they are told because we have become a country too lazy to think anymore.

Think about it, a recent study just showed a third of American's still believe that Sadaam was directly involved with the terror attacks on 9/11. This has been disproved time and time again to the point where even the White House admits there was no connection. Yet the Republican Propaganda Network still says it so folks still believe. You won't find it surprising to also know that 40% of Republicans polled believed that very lie. How sad is it that people can't even listen and hear the truth anymore?

We are getting dangerously close to Big Brother, Escape From LA, or any other dystopia story you know of. JFK once said, "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable." How far off are we from that very point? How much more are the people of America willing to stand as corporations and political machines rape and murder this great nation? People didn't even blink an eye when their civil liberties were taken away, why should they care if their votes are outsourced to the highest bider.

Nothing terrifies me and saddens me then this possibility. I can only hope that the powers of justice, of right and integrity can overcome this blight that has seemingly taken hold of our country. A country whose past isn't perfect as we were taught, we are not the sparkling ivory tower they would have you believe. Our hands are covered in blood over what we have done over the centuries. It seems every generation we realize this, but we seem to have forgotten. We are a great nation, we are the land of opportunity, and we must take it back from the barons who attempt to steal it away from us as if this was a child's game.

America... just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable. -HST

Here here!

Huxley would be proud :)

Its this kind of situation that causes me to look to the ACLU, and Senator Feingold for inspiration.

Say what you will about the ACLU, but their sole purpose is to protect those fundamental basics by any means necessary. Even if that means representing some pretty strange people...
