My Country Was Of Thee, Sweet Land of Liberty – Then I Woke Up!
I Used to Believe!
It’s the 4th of July Weekend. It used to be such a proud, happy
holiday for me. You see I grew up in a different America. I grew up in
the 1950′s in America and believed in the American Myths. The myth of
freedom, liberty, choice, peace, goodness, apple pie, Mom and the
American way. It took me many decades to WAKE up and it was the most
painful time of my life. You see, when you wake up you have to DO
something. I loved my country. Still do. That doesn’t mean I love my
government or leaders.
The song may say “We don’t need another hero” but we sorely do. For
me, America died on November 22, 1963. It’s been downhill since. Of
course my awakening took me back way further than the sixties. My
awakening began with reading “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” by Dee
Brown and realizing all the his-tory I learned in school was a LIE.
Thanks to great authors like Eustace Mullins, Ed Griffin, Howard Zinn
and so many other REAL patriots, I learned it only got worse long before
I was born. The creation of the “Creature From Jekyl Island” (G.Edward
Griffins book) the Federal Reserve which was the end of our sovereignty.
Today we live in a country run by sociopaths based on fear and lies
24/7. The media a complicit partner in the destruction of America. These
people either have no souls (surely no patriotism) or are so greedy and
ignorant they don’t care what they are doing to our country, liberty or
the world. We went from being loved around the world to hated around
the world. From a time of relative peace to running six wars on
countries that have done nothing to us – distraction from the globalist
world economy crashing. When 95 year old grandmas are being humiliated
at the airport by TSA agents (brown shirts) and babies stripped
searched, what have we become? The “terrorists” have won. Were there
ever any real terrorists? I’ve seen ZERO proof. Save for Osama Bin Laden
who’s now died nine times. Biometrics, fingerprints to workout or bank,
warrant-less searches, loss of privacy in one’s own home, loss of
control over our lives, choices or liberties. A government that has
taken us down the tubes financially as we move towards the same forced
austerity on the working class as Greece, Spain and everywhere else on
Earth. A system of injustice instead of justice. Forced insurance for
the poorest medical treatment on Earth. Poisoned food, GE food, radiated
food, chemtrails, beaches closed more often than not due to pollution,
radiation spewing on the planet, media blackouts on what’s really
happening in America, rich-immoral religious fanatics buying political
offices – and so on and so on………
I want to celebrate the 4th of July – but I can’t. All I believed we
stood for was a lie and has been trashed by inhuman, inhumane beings
that have sold all of us up the river. Corporations that run our
government (fascism), the dictatorship called the Supreme Court, the
shadow (secret) government exposed by Bill Moyers many years ago.
President Eisenhower and President Kennedy warned us of the military
industrial complex and the secret government intent on destroying our
country from inside out.
I’ve often wondered how Native-Americans feel on the 4th of July. The
sad thing is on the 5th of July everything is still the same. The
Patriot Act stands and the Bill of Rights dies. Our Nobel “Peace” prize
President ignores the Constitution. Up is down, down is up. Doublespeak
is the law of the land. If you “celebrate” this weekend – do it for
yourself! Remember as a WW2 Veteran once told me after the illegal
invasion of Iraq “you can love your country and not your leaders”.
