We the Sheeple

This was posted today in the bulletin section of MySpace by my friend, An American Patriot. I wrote him and told him that it was exactly my sentiments, though I would have never been able to say them so eloquently and could I post it here. Thankfully, he was very kind and was happy for it to get spread around.

WE THE SHEEPLE
We the Sheeple of the United Snakes, in Order to form an American Union, establish Injustice, insure no Tranquility, provide for the common greed, promote Welfare, and dumbdown ourselves and give away our Liberty, do ordain our government to take away all of our rights, establish a Police State, monitor our phone calls, and treat us no better than the tyrant that we left in England.

That is how I feel today, my heart is ready to explode, how it weighs so heavy in my chest ready to drop like a grapefruit from a tree only to hit the ground and burst exposing its contents.

It sadens my soul to see how weak and subdued the citizenry of this country have become, we see the problems all around us, yet we do nothing to change what we know is clearly wrong.

Let the government take care of it, thats their job, this is what many people have said, but you cannot see that the very ones we have intrusted with the problems of this country are the very ones creating the problems. So you become dependant on criminals and liars and so you are delivered into bondage.

I was always under the impression that we were to make things better for our children, raise them up not to make the same mistakes that we made, how I shudder with the thought off what kind of country we are leaving for them. Throwing away our rights based on fear, I know what your thinking, if we give up just some of our rights that will make it a better place for our children to live in, under this misconception wouldnt giving up all of our rights make it a pefect place.

Imagine a country filled with people living day to day in a police state, working for the common good of a greedy corporate government, where their every move is watched by big brother, looking for a chance to whisper to one another stories of a country that used to be free, where individuals had rights, a voice, an ability to stand up and point out the tyranny in the world.

This is the world I see for our children, sound outlandish? Look around, what do you see? Police looking more like the military everyday, cameras going up on every street corner, more and more of our rights dwindling away all in the name of security, yet how do you feel? Do you feel safe, or are you just content? Theres nothing to worry about, Right? You still have American Idol, Desperate Housewifes and the mainstream media, all is well.

Our government is protecting us from the boogymen that threaten our country right? All the while their wallets grow fatter with the spoils of forced Democracy and the death toll grows from the lies they fed us, the same lies that take away our children to fight for that same lie. Where will it all stop? Iran, Syria? How many of our loved ones will be fed to the machine that is clearly out of control?

I am reminded of a speech given by Mario Savio in 1964, There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part; you can't even passively take part, and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!

When will we stand up to the machine? In fact to our own selfishness, we have let this machine grow to a point where it is becoming unstoppable, we must stand up now, take back what is our right, our freedom! Stop the war machine, stop those who profit from the lies before its to late and our legacy to our children will be one of shame and regret.

The future is truly up to us, will you be just another sheeple in the corporate slave state or will you create a future for the next generation?

The choice is yours.

Great post and read! It can get depressing at times. I just don't understand how America(ns) can be so blind! Did you see the new book by Ann Coulter, Godless?! This woman is horrible!!! She was on the Today Show talking about the wrath of Liberals and how they bring down the country with their godless values! She and the other Repugs have no clue! Anyway, I could rant and rant!
