Over The Top

Are you one of those who feels that I am too "over the top" with my views. Many want to describe me as a radical extremist. I laugh when I hear that comparison. People are consistently trying to put me in a box politically. Because of my detest for socialism and communism, they believe I must be a conservative. Yet when I attack the religious nuts, I am a liberal. The truth is I am neither. What I am is angry at the way things are going.

I have news for everyone, this country is going to crap. If you fail to see this, you are blind. I know, this sounds like the typical rhetoric from someone aging that the world isn't the same. Hell, they thought society was ending when Sinatra came around. And Elvis. According to some, we needed to pack it in then.

In actuality, this situation is different. I am not talking about the moral fabric of this nation. What is happening is that we are moving from a successful system that rewarded risk, ingenuity, and achievement with one that promotes laziness and welfare. This is the reality of the circumstances of today.

I read a stat that stated roughly 43% of America receives some type of assistance from the government. This is not something that I doubt. Also, this is a number that will increase with the retirement of all the baby boomers in the next 10 years. What does this all mean?

It means the end of life as we know it. The great society that we called the American Dream is dead. We will see a shift over the next few decades towards our demise. Socialist ideals are almost too powerful to overcome. The political landscape is securing this.

How do I arrive at this conclusion? Simple. What happens when the people dependent upon the government passes the 50% mark? What campaign promises are politicians going to make to get elected? The answer is more handouts. A society that has more than half it's people relying on the government for support is on the socialistic path.

Those who believe this is a good thing were absent during history class. Consider what happened in a couple hundred years. We went from non-existent to the most powerful country in the world. We did this in the areas of politics, finance, and military. Countries which are 10-20 times older were surpassed by us. The system and qualities fostered in our system created this success.

Where were the socialistic countries? During WWII they were getting overrun by Hitler. It took our involvement to save their asses. What about their economies? Who rebuilt Europe after the War. The good ole U.S. of A.

The liberal economic policies work in theory. Actually, they are more effective in theory than capitalism. However, in reality they fail. The absence of the profit motive removes the ingenuity and creativity. If you want an example of a country without this, look at Italy since the end of WWII.

What does this all have to do with being over the top? It starts with the great need to get your attention. You are asleep at the wheel. The media and politicians are hoodwinking the people they are suppose to serve. Unless people wake up, we will soon be at the point where there is no turning back. This will certainly cause an upheaval by many. History proves that when the gap between rich and poor is too great, uprising occurs.

It is time to take this country back. Begin by re-evaluating all that you believe. Your mind is clouded by lies and misleading concepts. Think about the consequences of your decisions.
