This is a good movie to watch on the Fourth of July holiday. The last three entries in this blog - the one on Japanese turdburgers and "Soylent Green" , the one on the disappearance of America's former glory and freedom and this are sobering testaments on how we have lost the purpose of this grand experiment.
We are not going forward to insure our guarantees of liberty, freedom and governance BY THE PEOPLE. The tail is wagging the dog. We are going backward at breakneck speed.
So what will we celebrate this Fourth of July? Our independence from a corrupt, overreaching, tyrannical government? This particular Fourth of July we are reminded of our military, dying for a President - not fighting a declared war by Congress. We are reminded that we have a president who is grooming himself to be a totalitarian force against the people. We are reminded that our economy has sunk so far into the toilet that we are not recovering - we are run by a group of liars and thieves. Our freedom is taken from us in airports, we are under surveillance by hidden cameras waiting to "catch us". Our police have military weapons, and act brutally every day. There are so many things to say here. And I suggest we hang our flags upside down - partially because if we allow ourselves to think about it, the responsibility to act forcefully, even by a telephone call to a Senator, has not been fulfilled on a personal level.
We are out of money. The country is out of money. Our Congress is waging a friendly war, one side pitted against the other, but in the end, they are all cronies. Someone must stand and say, NO MORE COMPROMISE.
Maybe this Fourth of July, that should be on the lips of everyone enjoying a cookout in backyards - tell your neighbors NO MORE COMPROMISE.
IT'S TIME IN OUR UNITED STATES TO SHOUT OUT LOUD - NO MORE COMPROMISE.
It's time to be strong and stand for the Declaration of Independence. Read it to your audience before you hit the hotdogs and hamburgers. Here is the glorious document in its original text:
