I hear ya Devil Dog...however, you have three groups of people:
1. You have a group of contemptible swine who work tirelessly, 24-7-365, for decades, behind the scenes to undermine, subvert, and otherwise overthrow established systems to bring about some utopian society,
2. You have those who are charged with PREVENTING that situation and who do nothing to stop it.
3. You have ordinary folk who are for all intents and purposes oblivious to the wolves outside the door (deliberately dumbed down and MADE so).
This is nothing new.

It’s what WE decide to do or not to do at the end of the day. It’s always the choice between the comfortable slavery and chains of dependence, or the Hard Road of liberty.
Captain Parker and his men took the Hard Road.
We’ll see what the country’s made of one of these days. It’s coming whether we want it or not.
I think I’ll make that my tagline for awhile.
