Happy Independence Day, America! (Let's Hope It Doesn't Come To This...)

As we (United States of America) celebrate the 233rd anniversary of our Declaration of Independence from the British crown back in 1776, it is important for this country to remember the ideals and principles upon which it was founded. Over the last year, we have seen actions from our government that do not represent the America I was taught about in schools and in the history books. That America was proud and although it was not perfect it helped usher in a new industrial age upon which the world population advanced to new levels of progress.

Now America is a bully both abroad and to its own people. The government spies on its citizens and does not apologize. Grandmothers are tasered on our highways. Foster children are continually abused by a corrupt system. People are forcibly injected with experimental cancer-causing vaccines. Billions are spent on endless wars. Foreign bankers loot trillions from our children and grandchildren without any accountability. The police is being militarized. Major American corporations are bankrupted and sold to offshore interests. Climate bills designed to increase taxes and profits for the banks are passed in Congress without debate. And the U.S. military is discussing plans to operate domestically in violation of Posse Comitatus. See these previous blog stories about the Posse Comitatus and the military operating in California and in Arizona.

Hopefully, I am just being paranoid, but it certainly feels like a "change" is a coming. I just pray and hope that it is a positive change and not a negative one. However, all signs seem to point to the latter unless the people wake up to what is truly happening and that America needs to return to the principles upon which it was founded.
