Posted on 08/03/2009 9:51:06 AM PDT by patriot08
After trillions in taxpayer debt has been foolishly poured into the bottomless black hole of leftist wealth redistribution programs, under the guise of economic stimulus or stabilization legislation, the new ONE World government running Washington DC announces; Geithner, Bernanke Call for New Wind-Down Powers After AIG and the people still sit silent as they watch Obamanation grow in unbridled power.
Geithner Asks Congress for even Broader Power to Seize private Firms as the average American stumbles through their daily routine as if nothing is happening. Canada Free Press managing editor Judi McLeod writes No cheerleader for propping up greenback at G20 summit asking, Is the table being set for One World Government rather than speeding the recovery of the worldwide recession at next weeks G20 London summit?
Obamanation has taken the nation from a trillion in debt to over $4 trillion in debt in the first sixty days, with even more federal spending promised, which could put the nation $10 trillion in debt before the 2010 mid-term election cycle. Amnesty for illegals and ACORN led redistricting will make 2010 and beyond a moot point.
Still, beyond the movement to mail tea bags to members of congress or file another legal demand for proof of Obamas constitutional eligibility for the office he holds, both of which are like whistling in the breeze, the people remain largely silent.
Threatened with a Soup Line Existence The American people would never trade personal freedom for the false promise of federally redistributed free-stuff under some ill-fated socialist experiment, unless they were first threatened with a soup line existence.
And so it shall be
50% of their life savings and 30% of their home values have already evaporated into thin air. National unemployment is driving towards double digits as..

in college i used to read about hitler, lenin, stalin et al
and wonder, how did this happen?
now, i’m living it.
I’ve been saying this since November 4, 2008.
The American people are brain dead electing a radical Marxist to the highest office in the land along with an enabling Congress.
Get you Gadsden flags up, folks.
When I was in school I wondered how so many Jews could have marched to their deaths without a fight
Now Im watching the American lemmings do the exact same thing.
What will it take before Americans stand up and FORCIBLY REMOVE Obama the rest of his HATE AMERICA cronies from office?
Our nation's survival is at stake. What is it going to take?
Watching the news, hearing the stories, seeing what this government is doing, day in and day out....I just keep wondering...
WHEN IS ENOUGH, ENOUGH?????
“in college i used to read about hitler, lenin, stalin et al

Me, too. However, we are at least 2 generations past independent thought and critical thinking, action and responsibility as mandatory educational requirements. People no longer learn on what the basis the American contitutional republic stands.
Requirements in all disciplines except hard science and accounting are pure propaganda for the hard left, many of whom ran to the universities rather than serve their country.
50% of their life savings and 30% of their home values have already evaporated into thin air.Yet to the have not’s it’s meaningless they just want the free lunch and the msm is feeding the fire for them everyone needs to get into the face of the hacks pimpimg the free lunch scam.
Willful MINORITIES move history. Once we stop waiting for the "sheeple" to wake up, and take matters into our own hands, THEN we will be making progress. Speaking out at the town halls (birther quacks aside) is a good start.
i have a very good friend from Venezuela, who is home, visiting her parents this summer. they don’t live in a big city like Caracas, they live in a smaller city in the hinterlands. she knows what Chavez is doing there, she emailed me yesterday to say he’d closed 34 radio stations over the weekend. there was a directive signed a few weeks back, saying children over 3 were to be turned over to some state-run grupo infantil.She said Chavez SAID he was going to do all of this stuff prior to his election, but no one believed him, thought he was CRAZY, but he is doing it. all of it. she sees everyone living the daily life as always, she said if you don’t know what’s going on with chavez and just look at the people going about their daily lives, you’d never know. so now i realize, America is at an earlier stage, but it’s the same thing. people want to burrow down into the familiarity of daily life, the daily routine and block out the unpleasantness of what their gov’t is doing to them. i just pray to God that Americans are of sterner stock and that someone can WAKE THEM UP before it’s too late.
My husband and I believe something is going to happen, and Glenn Beck even said as much on his show, that it’s going to take one event, one major issue or happening, and people are going to rise up.
I don’t condone violence by any means, but I know this government will not back down by peaceful means. And I also know (and hear) many are just waiting....for the right moment. You can only antagonize a rattling snake for so long, before it strikes.
I believe that also. Except the one to be woke up will bw the US government!
When we see polls out there that say 49% believe America’s best days are in the past, seems to me the emphasis has shifted away from keeping the country strong. It’s now a “screw everything else, I want free stuff and President/Sen/Rep. (insert name of liberal/RINO here) is gonna give it to me” mindset.
Most younger Americans, under 40 or so, have no clue what Communism is, or about Hitlers rise to power, or the Cold war. They have grown up watching dumb sitcoms on TV, playing video games or extreme sports. And they were educated in school systems that are liberal breeding grounds, and being taught nothing about true history, only white-washed PC history that mis-construes the truth. They do not read the news, or surf the net for info or have any clue what is going on around them, as America collapses. I know there are exceptions, but most are clueless.
I suspect also, that if all FReepers had their ages posted on their profile page, most would be over 50. That also is a shame, that more younger people are not politically inquisitive or active. Again, there are exceptions to this statement.
Just my humble opinion, thanks
Then lets make the changes we want...
Were mad as hell, and we are NOT going to take it any more...in the words of the 92 HEROs aboard United Fight 93 that crashed in PA on 9/11...LETS ROLL
Glenn Beck is doing yeoman’s work on attempting to raise the consciousness of the sheeple. he needs as much exposure as possible, to get the word out to the braindead, that they need to WISE UP. we got our dashboard obama in the mail on friday! ; )

(so many Jews could have marched to their deaths without a fight)
Exactly my thoughts...”Everyone in the showers, don’t worry it’s the Fuhrers New Health Plan to get rid of lice”
I think you hit the nail on the head, even if I did quote you slightly out of context.
Being many generations removed from having to struggle for anything, the thought of that now is so remote as to be inconceivable to the largest economic block of Americans: the middle class.
I cannot imagine what circumstances would be required to change that. Assuming that it is even possible at this point.
“When I was in school I wondered how so many Jews could have marched to their deaths without a fight.”
The story of Jews marching to their death is a myth.
My grandfather attacked (and killed) the French policemen who came to his house shortly after the German conqured the French.
The Warsaw Ghetto held out longer than the nation of France.
I am not sure where the Jews-as-cattle myth got started, but it’s just not what happened — there was an effort to lie about the camps (e.g., postcards saying how great re-settlement was) and lie about the nature of what was going on, and these had some effect of tricking the population earlier on, but as things became apparent, they fought.
“What are Americans Waiting For?
I dont know what it will take to wake up the average American, but whatever it is, it hasnt happened yet
The people currently stocking up on food, water, guns and ammo in record numbers, causing shortages in all the above at the retail level, are clearly awake and anticipating something, but what? Meet the extremists...
The people still trying to get a court somewhere in America to hear the arguments concerning the most secretive corrupt president in US history, have been awake for a long time. Meet the birthers... But they continue to have trouble waking anyone else up, including in the so-called halls of justice.
Is it a bankrupt dollar and a new international currency that will get their attention? - A North American Union? - An ACORN Army on their doorstep? What will be the final straw that breaks the proverbial camels back?
I dont have the answer Frankly, I expected the people to revolt long before now. Clearly, I had underestimated the depth of apathy and tolerance for anti-American nonsense in the average modern American. But then, so did our nations founders, whom Im certain are rolling over in their graves in disgust by now.
The Silent Consent Continues
Nobody knows for how long or at what expense, but so far, the people remain silent and Washington continues to profitably interpret that silence as broad-based consent.
At this late date, I have no idea what will wake up the average American or how they might react once finally awake and ready to engage in self-governance. However, I am sure about two things
When they finally do awake, they are going to be really angry
And, the anti-American left wont let up until then
The clock isnt just ticking. Time has already run out as of the 2008 election. Washington DC is currently dismantling America, individual right by individual right, in an unprecedented massive multi-faceted assault on all things American.
If you are not familiar with the Democratic Socialists of America or their legislative branch, the Congressional Progressive Caucus, I strongly suggest that you take time to learn them well. They are in charge of your nation. This is who the average American is up against and they are a very well funded and organized enemy of the state.
You will not be able to take your country back without putting these two organizations out of business. The longer you wait, the tougher the battle, the higher the price.”
