U.S. To Suffer Same Fate as Soviet Union

FYI: "The Soviet Union's collapse into independent nations began early in 1985. After years of Soviet military buildup at the expense of domestic development, economic growth was at a standstill. Failed attempts at reform, a stagnant economy and war in Afghanistan led to a general feeling of discontent, especially in the Baltic republics and Eastern Europe." - History of the Soviet Union

If this sounds familiar to you, well...it should. We are witnessing the end of America as we know it.

It's important to note that the head of a private bank, along with a little help from the secretary of the treasury (also, not an elected official) are now running this country. Deciding which companies are going to be bailed out and how much new currency they can print up to cover it all. This isn't to say Congress nor the President would be doing a better job. They've made it quite clear that they have absolutely no idea how to get us out of our current situation.

"You mean, the government led us into trouble and now they don't know how to get us out?!!"

Hard to believe, but yeah...it's true. Any solution they come up with will only mean more big government. It's the only thing they know how to do. They never stop to think that maybe they could be the problem to begin with.

It'd be easy to blame the Bush administration and the Republicans for this recession, but it'd be just as easy to blame Pelosi and the Democrats too. I'm not going to lay the blame on either of 'em though. No, instead I blame every American who'll still be voting for them in this next election.

Every politician and every corporation in this country is powerless without your support. And I don't mean maybe one day years from now, if enough people wake up and start voting third party. No, I mean right now. We have to remember that everything that is real and necessary in this world can never be taken away from you.

This country has allowed itself to become enslaved by the big corporations, all based on the idea that they can offer us something that we can't live without. Whether it's your cell phone, satellite t.v., your car (that burns way too much gas), the nice clothes, or the food we could easily grow or hunt ourselves. And what do we do to afford all these unnecessary things...we work for the very same corporations that offer them to us of course.

Nowadays however, you have to go through the government just to be able to do anything for yourself. You have to get a license to hunt or fish, a permit to carry a weapon to defend yourself, and a license if you want to start your own business. Providing for and defending ones own family is apparently NOT a right. It's a privilege the government grants you (if they approve of course). If you want some free handouts though, your more than welcome to collect your welfare or unemployment checks. All they ask in return is that you continue to depend on the government and their intervention in every aspect of you life. Sound like a fair deal to you?

Maybe I'm crazy, but I'm about ready to give it all up. Imagine a life without bills to pay...every month...for the rest of your life...

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one
