This year the Fourth of July was bittersweet for me. It was an amazing day, but I couldn't help but think about the many negative changes our country is currently going through. For one, the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) still haunts me. It's so surreal that here in America a "law" could allow our president to become a dictator. And it's even sadder that so many people are still unaware of it or what it means (basically, our president could murder anyone he wants whenever he wants, without probable cause or a jury). My mind keeps thinking, If it's gotten this bad in just one year, imagine what it will be like next year! Ugh...I don't want to think like that or be negative in any way. I also don't want anyone reading this to think I'm one of those trendy idiots who complain about the luxuries of living in America (ie: "Like OMG #1stWorldProblems lol"). So let me be clear: I love living here. I love this country...just not the people who are running it. While these corrupt politicians (and offshore banks) are busy trying to rape this country of the constitution, remember that we the people are the reason America still exists. Let's not let our country turn into something that it's not. Our founding fathers and the constitution are what made us FREE in the first place...so let's keep America free. Let us not be ignorant or arrogant enough to think that just because we are known as "the land of the free" that something couldn't ever go wrong or that our political leaders would not lead us into more trouble than we're already in. (Don't forget...THEY created the housing crisis, THEY took away our privacy using the Patriot Act...THEY ruined our economy! We the people are NOT to blame!) And now they want to interfere with our free internet by using CISPA...apparently, the "terrorists" will get you through cyberspace too! LOL what a joke... The TSA are bigger terrorists than anything the internet could ever brew.
I only hope that you will pay extra attention to what is going on. Don't believe everything you hear especially from mainstream news (who are all bought and paid for by those same few running our government), but just pay attention. Be aware, be informed, and stay intelligent. Just remember that history always repeats itself:
"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves"
So now I leave you with a song in dedication of our Independence Day. This is my all time favorite rendition of The Star Spangled Banner:
Have a wonderful weekend, loves!
