Talking about my generation

My generation is now experiencing first hand the fall out of bad governance, crony corporatism, special interests, and interventionism.

My generation is growing up into an encroaching police state. Our country is completely divided, while some people cling to the left, and some people cling to the right. But the problems lie much deeper than that.

Our currency is now completely off the gold standard and is now backed by nothing. This fiat currency loses more and more value every day. Never in human history has a country survived on fiat currancy alone. Our 41’st anniversary with fiat currency just went by.

To go along with the fiat currancy, we also have an unprecedented amount of debt. Never in human history has a country accumulated so much debt. And all nations that do not resolve their debt problems go into decline.

Wars are expensive. Not only are they bloody and brutal, but the costs of maintaining them always drags down a nation’s wealth and resources. As of right now, we have over one hundred military bases around the world, and are engaged in a number of conflicts. Including the war in Afghanistan, and using drones and hellfire missiles to kill people in Pakistan and many other middle eastern and African countries.

Our elections are now completely fraudulent. In the 2000 presidential election we caught our first taste of this. And during the primaries this year, there have been many reports and law suits filled over the GOP’s handling of the nomination process. There are accusations of Ron Paul’s votes being counted as Romney’s, and counties that weren’t even allowed to vote. It seems that the GOP can’t even play by its own rules.

With my generation the buck stops here. We are no longer able to tollerate the charade of political deception being played by the establishment and enshrined in the media.

When I came to this country, I learned a lot about freedom and individual liberties. It’s the kind of knowledge that once you know, you don’t forget. In fact, once you know it, you begin to espouse it, and you can’t stop talking about it. Once you know what true liberty and freedom is, it gets stuck in your veins, and you’ll fight to maintain it.

When I first moved here, and after the 2008 elections, I tuned in to fox news and discovered Glenn Beck. Up until the beginning of this year I loved the guy and everything that he stood for. But then things stopped adding up. Something seemed wrong to me. Some of the actions he was taking and things he was saying didn’t make sense, they didn’t add up. I felt like he was going against the very principles he stood for. After discovering these things, I came to the conclusion that he is either completely miscalculating with the information he receives, or that he is an agent of misinformation, here to take our thoughts and upsets at the government, and flip them right back around to continue the establishment, to further their agendas. The problem with people like Glenn Beck is that while they are right in most aspects. They are also wrong in many others, and this leads us into a false dichotomy, and does nothing to help our reasoning skills. Always take what you hear from others with a pinch of salt, don’t take it as prophesy.

One of the biggest problems we have is that our media establishment is completely bias. I’ve heard the Tea Party and Glenn Beck complain for years now that the liberal media is bias. Now where I don’t dispute that, I would point out that FOX News and many of the other ‘conservative’ news channels are bias also. In fact all the liberal and conservative channels are all geared toward the big government and big brother agenda in one way or another. All they have to do is get you to argue about trivial issues, and you end up missing the point entirely.

Corruption is rife in this country. Of course no country is void of it, but you see it even on a local level here. There are very few politicians in power who do not accept lobbying from one group or another. Congress is now no longer concerned with our well being, but completely concerned with furthering their own interests, their own profits and their own convoluted agendas.

The corrupt politicians, the crony businessmen, the sold out media, and all the special interests groups are all working hand in hand for their own agendas, while looting the wealth of the nation. This is a cycle that cannot continue and will collapse in on itself, taking many innocent people with it. If we cannot put a stop to it, we will go down as a nation, whether we self destruct as a police state, or fall into total anarchy, our future looks extremely bleak, if we continue on our present path.

So where do we go from here? And what can we do about it? How can we fix these problems?

For all their current faults I still admire The tea party. I like it when groups of people get together and try to hammer out solutions to pressing problems. The local tea party groups in my area have had much success at the state and local level.

I believe that the future of this country is to build from the ground up at local levels. To elect new congressmen and new senators. To go across the isle and vote for both democrat and republican candidates, based on their knowledge of the constitution and their explanations of how they would roll back government.

And finally, the best thing you can do as an individual is to speak out and build a better tomorrow. If more voices come into the fray, then our debates get livelier, and we can weed out the ideas that don’t work and find more common ground.

The problems that face my generation are unprecedented in our country’s history. It is no longer a simple case of voting for one side or the other. It will take a great deal of effort and awakening by the older generations to help steer our country back onto the path of liberty and prosperity.

Learn about the constitution, and have the guts to stand up for what is right, don’t just go along with the crowd or the establishment. The stance that you make and show to the younger generation will make a lasting impression. Remember that the future is always built, by the up and coming generation. So together, lets make sure we make it a good one!

Tell the world of Paschendale

Iron Maiden is a very well known heavy metal band from the 1980’s. Aside from the fact they are still playing, and at this minute on tour, they continue to put out very intriguing and passion filled songs.

One of my favorite songs is ‘Paschendale’. Which recalls one of the bloodiest battles from the ‘Great War’.

Britain lost 1/10 of its entire population during the first world war. An entire generation was wiped out. And for what? None of the European countries gained anything substantial from the bloodbath.

Please listen to the song and read the lyrics, it is a haunting message, that bares not only truth from the brutal conflict, but a warning to future generations.

In a foreign field he lay
Lonely soldier, unknown grave
On his dying words he prays
Tell the world of Paschendale

Relive all that he’s been through
Last communion of his soul
Rust your bullets with his tears
Let me tell you ’bout his years

Laying low in a blood filled trench
Kill time ’til my very own death
On my face I can feel the falling rain
Never see my friends again

In the smoke, in the mud and lead
Smell the fear and the feeling of dread
Soon be time to go over the wall
Rapid fire and end of us all

Whistles, shouts and more gun fire
Lifeless bodies hang on barbed wire
Battlefield nothing but a bloody tomb
Be reunited with my dead friends soon

Many soldiers eighteen years
Drown in mud, no more tears
Surely a war no-one can win
Killing time about to begin

Home, far away
From the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away
But the war, no chance to live again

The bodies of ours and our foes
The sea of death it overflows
In no man’s land, God only knows
Into jaws of death we go

Crucified as if on a cross
Allied troops they mourn their loss
German war propaganda machine
Such before has never been seen

Swear I heard the angels cry
Pray to god no more may die
So that people know the truth
Tell the tale of Paschendale

Cruelty has a human heart
Every man does play his part
Terror of the men we kill
The human heart is hungry still

I stand my ground for the very last time
Gun is ready as I stand in line
Nervous wait for the whistle to blow
Rush of blood and over we go

Blood is falling like the rain
Its crimson cloak unveils again
The sound of guns can’t hide their shame
And so we die on Paschendale

Dodging shrapnel and barbed wire
Running straight at cannon fire
Running blind as I hold my breath
Say a prayer symphony of death

As we charge the enemy lines
A burst of fire and we go down
I choke a cry but no-one hears
Feel the blood go down my throat

Home, far away
From the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away
But the war, no chance to live again

Home, far away
From the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away
But the war, no chance to live again

See my spirit on the wind
Across the lines, beyond the hill
Friend and foe will meet again
Those who died at Paschendale

War is a costly and bloody concept, and should be avoided. It is very hard, if not impossible for a country to take over another, with an armed populace. That is why the US could not win in Vietnam, and continues to fail in Afghanistan. That is why the Zulu defeated the British during the Zulu wars.

Our modern killing machines are capable of so much death and destruction. Why send our young men out to die in droves in fruitless wars? Surely the time tested idea of self defense is a better strategy than the continued failings of preemptive wars of aggression.

Please consider this when you think the idea of attacking Iran is a good one. Iran has no intention of harming us or Israel, unless provoked. Iran has not initiated a war in over two hundred years. Israel has a huge nuclear weapons stock pile, and Iran has none. Listen to the rhetoric on the mainstream media when they insinuate that Iran may be trying to build a nuclear bomb. Notice how they can’t actually prove anything, or even tell you that they are building one.

If we side with the current twisted leadership of Benjamin Netanhayu, and attack Iran, China and Russia may well get involved. This has the potential to start a third world war. And many lives will be lost. And for what?

Unless you are prepared to pick up your own arms and go off to war yourself, be careful about where you rattle your war saber. Cruelty does have a human heart, and every man does play his part. Your opinion matters. Are you prepared to back up your own words? I know I am.

This post is dedicated to all those who died during the brutal conflict of World War I, and a warning to those who call for more death and destruction in what should be a peaceful world after ‘the war to end all wars’.

The truth about September 11th 2001?

Why should we not question 9/11? Why should we allow the incomplete investigation of 9/11 and the bias media tell us that Muslim radicals destroyed the towers, when the evidence is incomplete?

‘Question with boldness, even the existence of god’ – Thomas Jefferson

9/11 has been used as the catalyst for a series of dreadful events in the last decade, including the invasion and occupation of both Afghanistan and Iraq. Ironically Iraq has been an enemy of Israel since its formation. Does it not seem strange that we are encouraged to hate the Muslims from the Zionist controlled government and media when it is the Zionist Israelis that had everything to gain from the September 11th attacks?

Please watch all the videos in this article and make up your own mind.

Why are we told time and time again not to question 9/11? why are we made to feel like we are terrorists ourselves to question the horrific event? Is it not better justice for the victims of 9/11 to question every detail about that horrible day? Should be not completely and conclusively find out exactly who caused it? Should we not discard emotions and trust toward our elected officials, when they may have had something to do with it? So many people are quick to say that it could never be one of our own people who caused 9/11, and yet Timothy McVeigh was American, was he not? Did he not blow up an American building on American soil, killing innocent Americans? Why do we use childish conceptions that allegiance to ones own country would mean that you could never harm it? And yet we see the rise of dictators and their followers the world over.

I do not buy the idea that Al Qaeda was completely behind 9/11. It seems that the Zionist faction of Israel gained a lot from these horrific events, and indeed seemed to have something to do with it.

Throw away your old misconceptions, wake up, get away from the mass media, and do your own independent research. At first you will not like what you find, but it will be the truth, and from there, your real education begins, and from there, you can do something to stop the atrocities being committed by the real criminals.
