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”.
