A funny thing happened on the way to the demise of the United States of America.
Democrats blamed Republicans.
Republicans blamed Democrats.
Big business blamed the government and stupid little people.
The stupid little people believed the mainstream media and blamed big business.
Meanwhile, private property is now public property no matter what voters say or do to prevent it from happening.
And so on, and so on, blah, blah, blah. The truth of the matter is that America will die because of the dissolution of trust which was not only started by those in power, but encouraged by those same leaders, be they business, government, religious, education, etc. as an acceptable means to the end of behavior for all persons within our borders to engage in their lives on a daily basis.
What in the wide, wide world of sports am I talking about?
Truth. Trust. Honesty. Things which I am about to outline which will shock the stupid, terrorize the timid, and reinforce those who think they are prepared for the aftermath of the fall of Rome v2.0.
How bad is it in the United States now?
The President, much less the office of the Presidency can not be trusted by the American people or foreign leaders on matters foreign or domestic.
The Congress, be it any US Senator or Congressman can not be trusted as they have not only lied to get into office, but continues to lie about their commitments to the US Constitution of which they swear an oath to, or any dealings with constituents unless they have the financial wherewithal to pay for services rendered. The primary purpose of our government, be it Federal, state, or local is to seize the private property of the voters and redistribute it discreetly to those who promise to provide profit to those elected to power.
And God forbid if anyone is stupid enough to trust either of the two major political parties. They are both for sale, both betray their voters, and only care about enriching themselves as they burn the Constitution into ashes, one sentence, one phrase, and one Amendment at a time.
The Federal Courts, especially the US Supreme Court, have been replaced by political flunkies who cite international law, the Koran, or just make up justifications for rulings out of thin air which run contrary and in violation of their oath of office. Thus the final check in the checks and balances system is no longer valid and their are no checks, no balance, just rentals to fulfill the political whims or economic desires of those who wish to extract from the citizens whatever property, dignity, or obedience they desire.
The FBI and Federal law enforcement like the Secret Service was once incorruptible. Now? No one can trust any Federal law enforcement officer because it is not even known if they are illegally creating evidence for an arrest, performing a revenge attack or arrest on behalf of a wealthy competitor or enemy; worse there is now evidence of detention without cause or due process and sadly, political arrests at the behest of officials in the regulatory agencies for the purpose of seizing private property.
No individual who works for any Federal, State, or local regulatory agency can be trusted. Regulators can be purchased by businesses to put competitors out of business for fictitious cause, private property seized for a politician or contributor, or worse, families destroyed to fulfill a twisted version of family, education, or households as determined by individuals who have no concept of freedom or the Constitution and use the usual refrain, “I’m only following orders.”
The local and state law enforcement apparently can no longer be trusted either. This taser happy group of steroid infused US military applicant rejects seem to enjoy their task of intimidating civilians while beating up, molesting, and violating the rights of anyone from age 6 to 96. It puts the fear of every sane individual, innocent or not, every time the blue lights appear in the rear view mirror, in front of one’s home, or just walking down the street if that person will survive or have their rights violated by a law enforcement officer on a daily basis.
The religious leadership of this nation, hell, even at the local level, can not be trusted. If it is not that they use their religious beliefs to force conforming to government dictum against their religious writings, it’s the fact that many churches, synagogues, and mosques have so perverted their teachings to entrap members or worse, create a group of mindless robots which obey every utterance of the political leaders. Worse, one can not trust their children because who the hell knows what acts they might be trained, recruited, or forced to perform in the name of their religion.
The deception of how little trust their is in our society filters down to our employers. Many now act only as filtering agents, filling out reams of paperwork to conform with Unconstitutional government orders and worse, compliance with regulations not designed for safety or freedom, but to report on worker’s activities, payroll, and social programs designated to illustrate the “social justice” of the workplace.
Remember the trust everyone put in their financial advisers, stock brokers, and bankers? I’ll blow that trust up with the following: Dot.com and 2007-2009. Number of financial leaders arrested, convicted, or even punished financially for their illegal activities:
Number of retirees now forced back into the work force to bag my groceries, slice my deli meats, or greet me at WalMart? Enough where it saddens me when I see the 85 year old man asking if he can take my groceries out to my car every damned week.
Sadly, even our old “friends” we run into on a daily basis can no longer be trusted. What if one says something inadvertent or jokingly to a plumber, cable technician, mailman, babysitter, or mechanic? The inception of the Stasi based “see something say something” program now creates not only risk of becoming friends with professionals and contractors, but with the Obamacare healthcare regulatory nightmare, individuals can no longer trust doctors, nurses, firemen, or EMT’s with random conversation without facing the risk of an investigation which may separate a family or worse, incarcerate family members because of enhanced stories created by said professionals who stand to profit from tips which “could” lead to arrests.
Then this brings up the other friend, our old buddy the internet. Can anyone trust anything on the internet? Social media sites perform a function to relay information to individuals everywhere in the world, but in that process they have also become the source of skimming information for intelligence agencies and law enforcement worldwide. See something and say something jokingly or considered “at risk”? You’ll get a visit at your front door from two men wearing cheap suits and .40 caliber Glocks on side holsters under the jacket with Federal badges. Visit a website the Feds or local use to recruit or infect your computer with? You might be the victim of an unwarranted arrest for anything they dream up using manufactured evidence. And if anyone thinks they can trust that “email” from an old friend, the message board host who contacts you to discuss your preps, or that radio host who takes a sudden interest in your personal life, think again. The internet is a great source of information, disinformation, and entertainment. It is also the one key for transferring information in a manner which would have made Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union a permanent power almost impossible to defeat because of their ability to manage their domestic populations.
The idea of doing business as Americans used to is also a fading concept. Can anyone trust the labels for our products and foodstuffs that say “Made in America”??? Can anyone trust farmers to use non-GMO seeds from you know who? Can anyone trust the beef and pork processors not to use hormone loaded meat raised on a Mexican farm that most of us would call inhumane at best, a sanitary nightmare at worst? Hell, who knows if it isn’t 30% bat or rat meat mixed in if it is from China or Mexico!?!?!? Worse, can you trust someone you do business with without the risk of being sued for no reason? Can anyone trust the person you purchase products from online or in person to be honest about what they are selling you be it a good or service? The list of things which raise everyone’s suspicions as to what is being done in the name of profit should give everyone pause but now that this lack of trust impacts the very safety of one’s family, like the 2014 record for automobile recalls by all manufacturers, it is becoming dangerous to buy anything in our nation; sort of like living in a 3rd World country like Zimbabwe.
And don’t even, ever, ever, think about trusting lawyers. Trust me. Been there, done that, lost it all.
This brings us to an even more destructive aspect of our society. Trust within the household.
No one can trust anything on television, radio, or whatever broadcast medium any longer. Be it the Fox News circus, CNN (Communist News Network), or worse, any Comcast owned product. Radio is now so commercialized that one can not trust the words of Rush, Beck, Hannity, or even the local news. Talk radio, especially conservative talk radio went from an alternative to the status quo to an agenda profit driven format to sell everyone on voting for the latest political flavor of the day. Worse, local news has gone from serious local reporting to the occasional sprinkle of hard news mixed in with flower shows, sports, and fluffernuttery. To be honest the local station for the Sarasota area has not done a hard news story since the last hurricane hit the area. Everything is to keep the peace, pacify the masses, and allow one to vent all in the name of making a profit. The hucksters will tell you they preach the gospel, have a great idea to save the nation, or better yet have a candidate who is “different” from the same old bullcrap. Reality? They just sell the BS in different packaging while laughing all the way to the bank. The good news is one does not need to worry about internet radio much longer; the United States Department of the Internet will ensure that freedom will be silenced as soon as the regulations can be drawn up between the two dominate political parties at a bar somewhere in DC.
Unfortunately, it goes beyond one’s electronic devices which spy on your person with cameras, voice with open microphones, or reports on your text messages. It now becomes a matter as to if one can trust their own spouse or worse, their own children. The education industry has determined that the biggest threat to their employment and seizure of your tax dollars is independent thought. God forbid you allow your children to read books and ideas outside of that of the state. And that brings us to their final solution, where now the educators are using government designed variations of DHS programs to teach your kids to report on your activities. Own a gun and like to go hunting or sports shooting? Their teacher’s know it and I guarantee the authorities know about every report. Yell something obscene about the President, your congressman, or local mayor? That goes into the Law Enforcement database also. And worse, if you believe in the Tea Party or, gasp, the Constitution your child probably has bugged your toilet seat and you don’t even know it.
Sadly, the society formerly known as America has encouraged one’s spouse also to lie, cheat, or honor the idea of destroying trust. The government turns a blind eye to marriage between two consenting adults, adults with goats or whatever. But if a man and woman decide to live together, God help us, that is suspicious. If they get married, it’s almost criminal now unless one of the spouses has an outside affair to “spice things up.” Even worse, this society encourages and glorifies this activity. But if the man and woman object to being forced to finance the activities of two consenting adults which violates their religious beliefs, society teaches that that man and woman can not be trusted. That the old form of a “normal” marriage is not to be trusted and these individuals most be monitored for the safety of the state and their children. We have reversed reality to a point where the “Leave it to Beaver” version of American society is now odd and “Caligula” should be the norm. How can anyone trust a nation founded on that?
I don’t have the solutions as now I think our nation is now beyond repair and foregiveness. I must be honest, as I do not trust many people and have a very, very small circle of friends. It’s hard to live a life like this, but because of the burn of the past and the marks on my soul, I now understand why our society will fail. God help those who can survive what is coming and wish to restore what was. History has proven again and again that this task has never been completed and what was shall never be again.
Enjoy what is left, while it lasts.
