I am hearing more and more folks speak of the Two Americas these days than ever before. But these people, unlike some of our former democratic candidates for President, no longer believe the two Americas can continue in their unhappy marriage.
We have mentioned in our scribbling, a number of times, how America has grown into two absolutely distinct countries cohabitating within the same borders. We have also pointed out that, at some point, these two countries are going to want to be separate from each other. The patience of one or the other will run out and rumblings about separating the two countries, geographically, will begin.
It already has.
Those on my side of this issue want our republic back. We want the original constitution of the United States back. We yearn to live free (again) as our forefathers did, only a few short decades ago. In other words we want our freedom and the protections from government granted us by the original US Constitution restored.
I don’t recognize this place called “America” today. There is only a vague resemblance to the real America. Half of the population are freedom loving people while the other half have become socialist slaves. As of this writing, the socialist are in control of our government, which is on the verge of being considered a rogue government. (To at least to half the country) The last two elections have completed the “balkanization” of the country formerly known as America. The split is deep and wide.
Let me ask you… have you noticed more people speaking in lowered tones, whispering, to each other as they discuss the politics of the day in America recently? I have. I have been noticing it for some time now. It made me uneasy. Then I heard a radio commentator mention it a few weeks ago. He too has noticed it. As a matter of fact, I had a whispered conversation with a trusted friend, in my office, just a few weeks ago. The topic of the conversation was the shape the country finds itself in today. It was during this whispered conversation that I suddenly realized what we were doing. I was stunned at the import of what was taking place… in my own office.
In the America in which I grew up, no one felt the need to whisper about politics, about the President, about Congressional leaders. Does this tell you anything? It should. It tells you we are now an oppressed people!
Listen up, now: When a citizen in a supposedly free country feels the need to whisper his opinion on the workings of his government to a trusted friend, that dear reader, is oppression by an overbearing government!
Just days ago, I was having my hair cut and my barber and I were talking politics, as it our wont, when I realized he was leaning forward whispering in my ear his opinion about something the government was doing. This is NOT the America I remember.
When the government decides to station combat troops on American soil… this is not the America I remember.
Look, America is in BIG trouble. I MEAN BIG trouble. A few of us see it for what it is. A few of us have been warning it was coming and now it is here. It is my opinion; America had her last free election last November. I hope, and pray to God, that I am wrong about that, but I fear I am right.
A nation as divided as America is today cannot continue. As we struggle with our internal problems our enemies are circling ever closer, with fangs bared, ready to tear us apart if we don’t do it to ourselves first.
The inevitable approaches. Like a runaway locomotive even if the brakes were applied today, it will take a very long time to get the train stopped. There will be damage done.
I wish I had possession of a workable crystal ball to tell me how we will get through this mess we have created through ignorance and apathy. I refer, of course, to the ignorance of the American voter and the apathy of the American citizen.
I do not see how America can survive another half century with 50 states. I just don’t see that. The State Sovereignty movement is already underway and reports I have seen have the figure at close to two-dozen states already involved to one degree or another. That ought to get your attention. That is close to… HALF the states!
I received the following l “letter” by e-mail. I have no idea who wrote it. There is some evidence it appeared on Face Book, many months ago, but I really don’t know. It does, however, make a good deal of sense, even thought it is only a dream. I have included it here for you to read and think about -- nothing else.
Along with Pelosi and Reid, you can also have Oprah, Michael Moore, and Rosie O’Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all of them).
The point is, we cannot continue as a nation and remain this divided. Since neither side can, realistically, give up their ideals to join the other, I see no other way for this experiment we call “America” to end. And believe me, with the socialist government of the United States seemingly determined to force the tenants of Marxism upon us, there is no other end possible.
