Skip to comments.Americans Largely Silent as Their Nation is Systematically Destroyed

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.
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
With their backs against the wall, confused by a daily diet of media manipulated headlines aimed at scaring the public into submission, convinced that our nations complex woes demand a solution far too complicated for the average peasant to comprehend, the people find themselves in a state of terminal paralysis.

I dont know what it will take to wake up the average American, but whatever it is, it hasnt happened yet "
Ain't that the sad truth!
Tag update. Been waiting for an opportunity.
But we’re buying guns at an exciting rate. (alarming rate if you’re on the wrong side)
Gotta like that at least!
I’m sure there’s one coming...
Old habits are hard to break especially if reeducation camps are a forced option.
If they`re silent then they agree.
Class warfare as a strategy has worked and won.
The USA is socialist, get used to it.
H.S. The Americans I know are all fed up, what the Canadians don’t understand is there is a a total media blackout of anything anti-obama. I have never protested in my life but have put in for vacation April 15.
The dumbing down of society is finally paying dividend to our liberal masters...you can’t get mad at something if you don’t understand anything going on....
Sounds more right than not, sadly.
All we can do is all we can do - Are we doing all we can do?
Their MSM isn’t talking about the Tea parties? /gasp
“If they`re silent then they agree.”
Well said! and too true!
This is indeed scarry. I’m thankful that outside countries see this happening because I’m tired of hearing people in this country saying to me “oh you’re mad just b/c you’re a conservative”, or some racist comment b/c I don’t like Zero.
HERE ME OUT THERE!!! I am angry b/c there is EVIL at the helm!
It's exciting to find availability to buy lately.
It ain’t paralysis, it is denial and lethargy. Not too many ever dreamed that the US would go through this in their lifetime.
We have all heard about those other times when people had to rise up and fight back. It was easier to read about it and dream, than it is to become one of those legends that acted upon it for the sake of liberty.
If we miss work, we may lose our job...and what if it was not so bad afterall? Know what I mean?
I took a vacation day as well.
No Canadian has any room to talk.
The LMSM refuses to cover any organized “populist” demonstrations or protests until they reach McVay-levels of extremism. Most conservatives are mad as hell, but refuse to hurt anyone to get their point across.
Surely there are myriad McVays out there waiting for a chance to blow something up to get any amount of news coverage.
And when they do, the blood will be on the hands of the partisan press for their negligent, selective news coverage.
Isn’t that a sad commentary when Americans get real news from British and Canadian sources?
Everyone must be afforded the opportunity to have as much rope as they want. Certainly none want to be accused of acting in haste.
Indeed I do.
That doesn’t speak well of how our generation will be written into history, now does it...
The the greatest generation to the generation who lost it all, in two generations.
I think the question is, right now, what can we do? We can communicate with our congresscritters, we can complain, we can write letters, but we can’t really do much else.
Not sure that's accurate. Sure, some agree. But I believe there is a large group of people who just don't realize what is being set up right now. Apathetically oblivious, they fell for the "change" mantra.
If we had a real watchdog media, perhaps a lot of these folks would have made a better choice. I'm not excusing their apathy, just stating a point of view.
I talked to a regional mgr. of Wells Fargo branch the other day who won trips to Hawaii and Vegas and could not go. She also lost her bonuses and her 401K is down so low she cannot retire early as she had planned. I talked to someone in Vegas and she said there are reports of anger over the loss of income due to the cancelled trips of bank executives. That is a Democrat area. The displeasure is not limited to conservatives even now and it will only get worse. Mark Levin’s Book Liberty and Tyranny is number 1 on Amazon. I just bought 5 copies of it today to distribute. We are in a war against ignorance and I do believe people are beginning to awaken.
About the only MSM reporting that has any objectivity at all right now is the foreign press.
AP/Rooters and the majority of big US papers refuse to be critical of Barama or his administration.
No. We can act in a principled yet practical manner to begin to take this country back.
The writer is American. Just not welcome in too many American press rooms today, for obvious reasons. Surprised he’s not already in a re-education camp, or worse.
Besides, even the EU and Canada are right of this administration. Only Russia and China are left of Obama.
Same here...the sane ones at least are upset...I’ll be at a tea party as well. I wish there was a tv network that was 100% conservative. Fox does NOT count.
There is no excuse for our American media to ignore events.
What the Hell are they expecting? Armed insurrection? Conservatives are too busy mumbling under their collective breaths and repetitively stating “we’re Conservatives, we don’t do things like that”. Not even attempting to rescue their own nation.
You can move to Texas and hope we keep it all together.
Pretty sure we can.
“Most conservatives are mad as hell, but refuse to hurt anyone to get their point across.”
Don’t realize that they are at war for the future of their nation then, do they. Hope you don’t expect the left to take any prisoners.
Thank you for joining in the chorus!
When the left got the educational system, we were basically done.
It’s going to take some serious leadership, or a large upheaval to change it back.
We can stop funding this regime in an instant, if only we would. Nobody wants to go first because nobody trusts their fellow American to go second.
Shutting down AIG, Bear Stearns, Merril Lynch, should have been a requisite for any bailout. They have 12 to 24 months to reconcile their books, explain their losses and dissolve the companies assets to minimize losses to the taxpayer. Isn’t that what the Resolution Trust Corp did back in the 1990’s with the S&L mess. Place criminal charges on those who by stupidity or malfeasance ruined these companies.
Why are we propping up companies whose culture(s) are corrupt, and who’s leaders are incompetent.
Of course not - but - the implied threat that we might, may be enough.
For the shooting to start. Real Patriots don't want to fire the first shot and are waiting for the Obamazombies to do it we we can return fire en force.
My personal theory is that once it sinks into the heads of enough true blue liberals that they are no more immune to the general suffering than the rest of us and that Obama doesn’t care about them either, they will be even more fearful and enraged than people like us can comprehend, and they WILL be loud and violent.
Doesn’t matter if they agree or not. If they are silent, they have consented.
Until Americans are willing to risk their comforts to do more than complain about it, what can you do, huh? Picket those media outlets that are carrying on the blackout. Confront them directly, wherever you see them. Don’t give them a moment’s social peace. Ask them in front of their kids. When their own children are asking them “why did that man say you’re lying, Daddy?”, you’ve wounded them a little. Turn the psychological warfare tables on them.
Yet we keep funding them all.
[But were buying guns at an exciting rate. (alarming rate if youre on the wrong side)]
30% of us are just sitting back, dropping out, buying food and defensive ammo. The breakup is coming, but it will be rioting leftist mobs that crack first when the free lunch runs out.
