We are at war

This country is now a shell of it’s former self. The presidency is now a joke. If Mitt Romney win’s at the GOP national convention in August, and the presidential contest becomes Mitt Romney vs Barack Obama, you may as well stay home in November. Both these candidates stand for the same issues.

The difference between these two candidates is almost zero. Do not be led to believe that voting for one ‘side’ will change everything for the better. This problem has been a long time coming, and this country has been rotting away from the inside out for many decades now.

The healthcare bill that just passed is a strong indication of just how rotten the United States government has become. No nation should force its citizenry to purchase a product from a company.

“Man was born free and yet everywhere he is in chains.” The chains that now surround him are often emotional, peer pressure, and financial chains, aided by the hand of government tied with corruption and advertised at a childlike level on TV.

The people of this nation are now so emotional about politics, that they do not see clearly the real issues at hand. Illegal immigration, homosexuality, race, none of these issues are of grave importance. These are out-dated issues brought up with strategic timing to trigger an emotional response from certain percentages of the population in order to ‘swing votes’. Being ‘Illegal’ is simply a technicality, it is not the real issue. Being homosexual does not mean your children will all become homosexual themselves, and with a black man as president, I can say that for the most part, racism is mostly dead, except for certain ‘extreme’ areas. The real issue of the day, the most important one right now, and what is of grave importance is human liberty. The right to live your life how you want to.

Voting for what Jessie Venture calls the ‘Rebloodicans and the democrips’ will not save us come November. Voting for new senators and congressmen can definitely help if the right ones are choosen, and real changes are brought about at a local and state level. This country is currently being used for special interests and for what the occupy movement calls ‘the 1%’. There is truth in that. How does dying in foreign lands help improve ‘our’ freedom at home?

While our troops have been away, almost the entire Constitution has been written over or erased by documents such as ‘the patriot act’ and ‘the NDAA act’. This has been done with bipartisan support from both republican and democrat administrations.

The federal government is now so corrupt, that it has become very obvious that every action taken is one to loot from the pockets of working Americans, and to strip their liberties away. On one hand politicians talk about the greatness of america and of our freedoms, and on the other hand they strip these freedoms away for profits. In a bold new attempt to silence people like myself from speaking out online to thousands of other people, they have recently introduced legislation such as SOPA and PIPA. And they call this the land of the free, where you are supposed to have freedom of speech.

For those of us who are awake, and who realise that neither the republicans nor the democrats have any interests in representing ‘we the people’, and only care about representing their own special interests. We understand that we are now at war with the federal government and the oligarchy behind the scenes.

I am by no means an anarchist, nor am I inciting violence. The war that has now began is a philosophical war for our independence, to finally once and for all decide the fate of man, to show what liberty is really all about. Freedom means just that; to be free. To be free to choose, to live the life you see fit for yourself, not the life that some bureaucrat in a far away land wants for you.

I am currently reading a book called ‘Non-violence is not for wimps’, it is very insightful and shows how to combat current issues without resorting to violence.

This philosophical war is just beginning, and it will take years to win. Be prepared to be in this for the long haul, it won’t be pretty, and the government will clamp down. This battle will not be won or lost in November, and there are many trials and tribulations ahead. Be prepared to learn truths that will make you sick to your stomach, and keep an open mind about the world around you. There is a lot to learn, and a lot to do, but no-one ever said revolutions were easy.
