Why, yes, I am paying attention. I am not paying attention to the Media or those who are being dragged, kicking and screaming into the 21st century. I don't listen to the "common wisdom" which is neither common nor wisdom. The old way of doing things is precisely what brought us to our present state. Are you suggesting that we regress and do it all over again? If we return to the way we did things in the 1950's, where do you think we would be in 65 years? Exactly where we are today, that's where.
Some of your comments were a bit perplexing. Would you name a few of the countries that liberals have destroyed?
I like # 5. Remove the ability of the people to defend themselves from the government. The government has bombs, missiles, aircraft, tanks, etc. You have nothing available that would be more than a minor annoyance to the government if they decided to declare war on Americans.
As for Obama, he is the worst Muslim ever. He eats bacon, supports women's rights, drinks beer, sings, dances, wears gold, listens to music, and so on.
The government is losing control of healthcare. People are taking their healthcare into their own hands. They are rejecting government statements on how diseases should be treated. More and more people are becoming aware of the lies of big Pharma and the AMA.
The old form of education is failing and new schools are starting up that do not follow the guidelines set forth by the government. People are home schooling. These things are happening because traditional schooling methods and objectives are not viable.
The financial systems of the world are in really deep doo-doo. Stock markets are on the verge of crashing, government debt in Europe, the US and Japan is so hellacious that there is no way it can ever be repaid. Europe is spiraling down now, Japan is next and then the US. You cannot solve these problems with less taxes, less services etc. The solution imposed on Greece was austerity. What happened? It made the problem worse. Austerity meant less money circulating, which meant less taxes, which meant the government had less money, which meant there had to be more austerity.
So what can you do? You can acknowledge that our current monetary system is a failure and is beyond redemption. You build a new one, that's what, and that is what the world will do. The new one will arise from the people, not the governments. They are failing also and have no idea what to do anyway.
The people you think are useful idiots are quietly throwing off the chains of government and the old ways and taking control of their own lives. They are not talking about it, or demonstrating in the streets. They are not organized, and indeed are, for the most part are not even aware that others are doing what they are doing. The people who are frothing at the mouth, screaming and demonstrating, both liberal and conservative, are not a part of the forward motion of the human race, but instead are like Neanderthals, trying to drag us back to systems and old ways that did not work very well in the old days and cannot work at all in these times.
The idea that our "leaders" control us is an illusion shared by leaders and by the unwashed masses. We are moving away from centralized government, the idea that money is power, and the idea that people must be told what to do and what to believe. The government, health care, Wall Street and religion are losing credibility. When a good portion of the population realizes that power resides within the individual and not in organizations and institutions, the organizations and institutions will become irrelevant.
That is what is happening now in America. We are sloughing off the old, outdated ways of being and beginning to take our power. The old ways will fight to the bitter end to maintain themselves, but they are fast losing ground and will ultimately become totally irrelevant. It will take time and it will be interesting, but the outcome is already known.
I can read what you said and say, "everything is just fine". I am not looking at the obvious, because the obvious is misleading. Everything is not just fine, it is terrific.
