Why is America Getting Crazier Every Year?
Right Side News ^ | 1/1/2013 | American Dream

Posted on 01/02/2013 8:42:37 AM PST by IbJensen

Why does it seem like America is getting crazier with each passing year? It has become glaringly apparent that very deep corruption has taken root in our society from the lowest levels of society all the way up to the highest levels of society. In fact, some of the worst behavior of all is being exhibited by those that are supposed to be “examples” for our young people – politicians, bankers, lawyers, CEOs, etc.

As we enter 2013, the American people are greedy, selfish, boastful, proud, arrogant, disrespectful, ungrateful, materialistic, unforgiving, without self-control and they are completely and totally addicted to entertainment. They believe that America will always be “the greatest nation on earth” just because of who we are, and they believe that the rest of the world should look up to us as a bright, shining example of everything that is good in the world. Meanwhile, we lead the world in a large number of negative categories and our society is decaying right in front of our eyes. It reminds me of what happened during the waning days of the Roman Empire.

The Romans just assumed that Rome would always be dominant forever, and they became extremely complacent and extraordinarily decadent. We all know how that turned out, and at this point things are not looking good for America either. So where do we go from here?

Well, it might help to ask ourselves a few questions as another year begins.

The following are 25 “why questions” for you to ponder as we enter 2013…

Why did the New York Times (the most read newspaper in the country) publish an article by a Georgetown University professor entitled “Let’s Give Up On The Constitution“? What kind of message are they trying to send by publishing that trash?

Why is the U.S. government actively supporting and giving aid to Syrian rebels that are beheading Christians? Just the other day, Syrian rebels beheaded one Christian man and fed his body to dogs. The man that they killed had recently been married and was expecting his first child.

Why is the U.S. military sending troops to 35 different African nations in 2013? Can we really afford to be the police of the world?

Why does California keep doing such stupid things? On January 1st, more than 800 new laws (most of them ridiculous) go into effect in the state.

Why is so much U.S. real estate being bought up by China? Chinese citizens purchased one out of every ten homes that were sold in the state of California in 2011.

Why is Texas Governor Rick Perry resurrecting the Trans-Texas Corridor project? Does he honestly believe that nobody will notice?

Why is the mainstream media ignoring the fact that the percentage of Americans that are against a ban of handguns is at an all-time high?

Why is the mainstream media ignoring a recent theater shooting that was stopped by a man with a gun?

Why do celebrities that claim to be “anti-gun” constantly make movies that are absolutely brimming with gun violence?

Why is genetically-modified rice that has human genes in it being grown in Kansas?

Why is the Obama administration working so hard to “force Christians to act against their faith“?

Why was a surveillance drone hovering over the Vikings-Packers game at the Metrodome on Sunday?

Why did the U.S. government ask the Mexican government to help them increase participation in the U.S. food stamp program?

Why does the U.S. government have a website that teaches immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States?

If “terrorists” are the threat we are all supposed to be worried about, then why is the U.S. government spending gigantic mountains of money to watch and monitor Americans? Today, the American people are the most surveilled people in the history of the world. Why is this happening? What will our society eventually look like if we keep going down this path?

Why is the mainstream media being so quiet about the giant sinkholes that are opening up all over the world? Why have volcanic activity and earthquake activity along the Ring of Fire increased so dramatically as we approach 2013?

Why are Protestants losing political power so rapidly in America today?

Why does the Obama administration seem so determined to reduce the size of the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal?

Why don’t more Americans know about the population control agenda of the global elite?

Why are so many workers claiming Social Security disability? Back in 1967, there were about 41 workers for every person on Social Security disability. Today, there are only about 16 workers for every person on Social Security disability.

Why do 77,000 federal employees earn more money than the governors of their own states do?

Why does it cost American taxpayers more than a billion dollars to take care of the Obamas each year?

Why is Hillary Clinton the most admired woman in America?

Why is Barack Obama the most admired man in America?

The fish rots from the head...

The U.S. went out of control years ago....It’s now more like an oligarchy, a cabal of insiders, the very wealthy, criminal bankers, etc. There is no fixing it.

2 Timothy 3
King James Version (KJV)

3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was.

10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,

11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

AND:

Romans 1(KJV)

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

America is increasingly under the control of the libtard agenda, and the libtard agenda is the product of the combination of three irrational worldviews: Marxism, secular humanism, and postmodernism

I spent some time trying to pinpoint the exact date and event that started the decline. It could be Woodstock and the seeming validation of the Hippie movement. Or it could have been the Civil Rights movement, or the Assassination of JFK or MLK, It could have been Vietnam, it was underway when Nixon left—so I will not blame him. Who started it all? Was it LBJ? or the “Pill” were they the cause? What about women’s Liberation and NOW? They were a help—to be sure. TV has to be in the mix—as a force of cultural norms. The decline in schools needs to be addressed and the rise of the Powerful Teacher’s Union. The Gay Movement has a place—but it is a johnny come lately to the scene so—a symptom not a cause. Drugs and the “If it feels good do it” philosophy must be added into the mess. In the end—I think were were killed by our own success and wealth. We put up with fools because it felt good—feed the poor, give away things to blacks, browns etc... Elect the first black man...etc... But the damaged is done to the body politic. In the end we will be slammed by the forces of history. Then we will have too little resources, too little power and no freedoms.

Have a heart. Besides, who cares about the corporate welfare baby, NAFTA speedway and private property rights killer called TTC? Ol' Rick goes to the gun range and talks to God while jogging, who must have told him to resurrect the TTC while he's handing out taxpayer funded college money to illegals and propping up subsidized windmills across the state.

Very simply. Satan is the god of this world. Given to him as the result of sin as told in the HOLY BIBLE. and we see the result ... everything mentioned and more. This is the state of the world until the foretold coming of Jesus Christ, and the coming judgment.

Mankind is continually doing evil. Jesus died for our sins and paid the price. We are to have faith and acceptance of Jesus as our Lord and Savior, as evidenced by a changed life.

Yes, but just by happenstance. IIRC, it was referenced in an article I was reading about something else and it was odd enough that I read about it a bit.

The world went out of control years ago. There are a few very wealthy people at the top who own everything - everything. The bankers, the politicians, etc. are members of the little people to these guys.
Soros admitted he really liked playing God. He enjoyed making and braking nations. These are the people who give the orders. If they can destroy a nation, they can destroy a politician, or a banker, or an ambassador dabbling in their affairs.
To the failthful: Even these evil guys have a leader - one entity - that controls them.

They have a problem right now, though. The population has reached critical mass. I'm not talking numbers per say as far as the planet earth goes. I'm talking about controllable numbers. Too many people are demanding their own way, too many want a free ride, and too many are putting their tools down, and it's becoming a problem.
The herd has to be culled, so those who are left are easier to control. The goal, if it can be pulled off successfully, is to get people to kill each other off. That way, no one notices the men behind the curtain. If killing each other off doesn't work or isn't working fast enough, they'll use the medical system or whatever they need to get the job done.

This is why there's chaos. It builds hate, and then violence. It's like they say - never wastes a good manufactured crises.

In modern history, America was the shinning beacon on the hill...The stable empire, the country the world looked up to for fairness, legitimacy, freedom, innovation and influence. That's gone and that is what I was referring to.

The greedy, the super wealthy well connected, are the one's pushing for ever expanding, ever controlling big government and are in reality intentionally creating chaos.

I agree, the super powerful wealthy behind the curtains would now like to see most of the worlds population, including those in the U.S., dead.

The U.S. Government now views people as heavy luggage, demanding, problematic, using up all the resources, a burden to the super wealthy global power elite.

They clearly would be much better off if 6 billion of the 7 billion people in the world were dead. They'd be much easier to control too!

The UN "scientists", the same guys pushing global warming, have been demanding a massive depopulation. Rumor has it their maximum number is about 500 million or so. According to them, the "extras" are using up too many resources.

I don't think it has anything to do with resources. It has to do with the lack of control of those resources. The worlds population is starting to figure things out and the worlds people outnumber the controlling elite by far.

They’re all hypnotized. Obama tells us we are cows and 47% of us moo.

Actually, Oboma is well trained in covert hypnosis. He and Bill Ayers were deep into the Chicago public schools while community organizers. They were trained to use this technique on the school kids to try to keep them in the schools (no students, no funding, no union dues, no Democrat donations).
I bought a book about this after seeing something on the Science channel. The author (it was a text book) discusses his work with Oboma in the introduction.

Covert hypnosis uses certain words to open up the analytical mind to suggestions. These are agreeable words that sooth. Once the defenses are down, the message is slipped right in. Oboma does it all the time. If you know what covert hypnosis is, you'll not be susceptible but you'll see it right in front of your eyes, and no one calls him on it.

Watch how Oboma always comes out - at first - as a guy who could be your best friend. Then, once he's got you, he nails you. You don't even notice it. If you're strong in your beliefs , it won't work, but if you're open, you're screwed. Oboma owns you.
Thankfully for his victims, the ideas have to be reinforced often until they become natural. Unfortunately for his victims, the MSM makes sure it happens. That's why you keep hearing the same phrases - word for word - from different sources of the liberal media. ("Fair Share" would be a good example of this type of covert reinforcement.)

Actually, it was an off-duty female cop working security.

The answer to your question is that it is assumed cops will shoot the bad guys. It's not news.

Yeah the media and Obama are hypnotizing a lot of people. But if you know what they are doing like I do then you set up defenses and you know that they are not reporting news but crap to make think and act to give up your own individual liberties for the sake of more government growth and government power.

I know Obama, the democrats, and the media are all socialists/democrats and they are pure evil marxist pos. I wouldn’t believe a thing they say.

Thank you for the link ... in truth America appears ignorant of God’d will in regard to Israel. We are and will be the loser.

Clearly, it is God’s Word. In Deuteronomy 30:11-20.. there are a few verses ... ‘Today I set before you Life and good, and death and evil... Choose life.

Blessing and cursing ... choose blessing.’

Which means we are to follow the Word instructions of God. When we do not ... how is it we act surprised?

God’s word stands, and God’s will ... will be.

Praise the LORD.
