Man Without A Country: Me

 

In light of Obama's announcement yesterday to legalize a million illegals, and since he has decided to circumvent Congress as well as the Constitution, all in the name of political favor, I am reprinting my earlier essay on a nation that has turned upside down, where right is wrong and wrong is right...and favored:                                                                                                         

Do any of you remember the famous story, "Man Without A Country"?  Written by Edward Everett Hale, it is a story about a fictional character, Philip Nolan, who curses the state of the U.S. and is subsequently tried for treason and exiled from the United States.  The story was in all of our elementary school textbooks when I was in school.

We now see modern day examples of people who have given up on their country.  Mexicans did it "en masse" as fully ten percent of the Mexican population have deserted their country and invaded ours.  Rather than stay and fight to right the wrongs of their society, Mexicans have opted to surrender to the corrupt politicians and violent drug lords...and leave.  Ironically, they bring with them, the same lack of  backbone, the same lack of moral compunction, that contributed to the downfall of their mother country.  They have learned that they can attach themselves like leeches to a dying American life form and hurry along our demise.  Through identity theft, criminal activity, drug smuggling, gaming our social services and through their anchor baby ruse they are sapping the last drops of life from the America that once was. AND THE LEGAL HISPANIC CITIZEN REFUSES TO STAND UP AND CONDEMN IT.

American blacks are not much different.  Since the Great Society programs of the 60's American blacks have largely chosen to play the "victim card" and use their race as an excuse to be an unproductive burden on society.  Though they make up only 12% of the U.S. they consume 40% of every welfare dollar.  70% of all black families are one parent households.  Black women abort their children at five times the rate of whites.   Blacks have used the "victim card" for almost fifty years now to explain away explosive crime rates in their "hoods", to explain away their 70 percent high school drop-out rates, to explain why they make up 50 percent of the prison population.  And they are led by some of the most corrupt leaders you'll find anywhere in the world.  White hating Louis Farrakhan, white baiting  Jessie Jackson, tax cheats like Charlie Rangel and Al Sharpton, corrupt politicians like Maxine Waters.  These black leeches rest in the arms of their victimhood spurred on by liberal politicians who derive their power by keeping blacks dependent on a welfare check and food stamps and free medicaid...and allowing the "victim" lie to continue into perpetuity.  AND THE PRODUCTIVE BLACK COMMUNITY(WITH THE EXCEPTION OF BILL COSBY AND THOMAS SOWELL) REFUSES TO CONDEMN THIS

How about the Whites?  Are they our savior?  Hardly.  Whites make up 50 percent of the American populace and 40 percent of welfare recipients.  Having had a good look at how so many blacks and hispanics were getting free rides, millions of them have now joined the great American federal gravy train.
It is far easier to draw food stamps and an unemployment check than it is to take a job "below their station".

How about the American populace in general?  How are they doing as "citizens"?  Well, 60 percent of them are too lazy to go out and vote.  More than that have no clue about how our country is being run.  Now that the national draft is over fewer than five percent of the American populace choose to serve their country in national service such as the military or the Peace Corp.   52% of them pay not a dime in income taxes, thus they have little interest in how tax payer money is spent.  Even those who do have jobs, and pay taxes, are too focused on the X-Factor and Glee and Facebook to care one iota about our country, much less care about doing something about it.  THEY ARE LIKE BLIND MICE, SO FOCUSED ON THEIR TOYS THAT THEY CAN'T TAKE THE TIME TO STAND UP FOR THEIR COUNTRY.

While it might take awhile, America is also a country in the midst of collapse.  The only thing preventing an immediate American collapse has been the strong foundation that was built by earlier, more hard working, more moral generations of Americans.  But the foundation is crumbling and we shall see in the next decade or two the total collapse of American society.  

I've tried mightily over the last year to wake up a few people through this blog.  I've failed.  Last year I wrote of the real possibility of a second Civil War, fought not for race but for economic justice and the end of the government gravy train.  The Tea Party presented the smallest flame of hope that America was rising again; rising to stamp out corruption, to stomp the hell out of whining "victim-hood", to end the Mexican invasion, and to give a swift kick in the ass to those who sit on their ass and do nothing.

I'll continue my crusade.  Like Don Quixote, I'll continue to mount my hump-back steed and swing at the windmills of injustice.  I can honestly attest that I have no "dogs in this fight".  I'm 63 years old and I can ride it out until I'm dead...and America, and me will not matter anymore.  But, like an old woman, staring at a picture of herself in her youth, I am saddened by knowing how grand America once was..and what she has now become.

I am truly a man lost in his own country.  Were I ten years younger I think I would just exile myself to a charming little village in some distant land...and tell America to go to hell.   But I gave 22 years of my life fighting for my country so I guess I'll just keep swinging at windmills till I have no more strength to do so.

Just, I commiserate with you. When I speak of the same issues, I get a) a blank stare, b)condemnation as a bigot, c) condemnation as a radical, or d) ad homenism that I have no understanding of the issues. I will accept the radical part, as I feel our Founding Fathers were radicals. I think it takes a mordern radical to be a patriot. Keep fighting the good fight!!!!!

Thanks Grenadavet. It was Jefferson who said the tree of liberty must be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants. Most Americans no longer care...they have been hypnotized into a lethargy that says "we don't have to do anything to maintain our liberty, our prosperity and our greatness. It's all take and no give.

As a historian and avid student of civilizations, I sadly agree with the substance of this article. The symptoms of a sick and collapsing society are all over the map even if only half of the cited statistics were true. However, nations have also arrested their downfall by spiritual renewal like the Wesleyan Revival in 18th century England, and there remains the hope that this once "nation under God" may yet return to the values of its Founding fathers.

Thanks for your comments, anon. With regard to cited statistics, my stats are from various governmental agencies, to include the census, the dept of health, education and welfare, Numbers, USA, U.S. Dept of Education, etc. I use to provide links to each data point cited but found I was just aiding the lazy. I encourage anyone to just google any of the cited statistics; they will find numerous valid links to support those stats. Let's hope that a "renewal" is still possible. Again, thanks for your comments.

In response to the stats used in this article I have no problem accepting them as valid as I have seen them in other publications. All I wanted to point out is that even just half of them were correct, our country would be in deep trouble. As for a spiritual revival history teaches us that what may seem "too late" for us humans if never beyond the infinite resources of our mighty God.

I am the hispanic retired officer. (20 years in the Army) I have read and posted before regarding illegal immigration. So true and sad are your thoughts. I am going to vote. I join your crusade of swinging at windmills. When I talk about this, even some members of my family give me the looks. My estimate for the total collapse are also within the next 10-20 years. I will still be around to see that unfold and I will feel bad for my kids, they will have to live in it. I am pessimistic.. there will be no renewal and no salvation. The wheels are in motion, we are way past the point of return. In my view, it is starting (already) to fall apart. I blame the career politicians with little or no "cojones" to stand up and do what is right for the country and not for their pockets or careers. it hurts to see my country in the moral,social, financial shape it is now.

Anon, you are one hell of a guy. I really admire Hispanics who stand up and say "illegal is illegal" no matter who it is. I even get the "racist" from people who don't know me. But, as you know, "leadership" is a lonely job. Too many are like sheep and will swallow the majority view whether it is right or wrong. God bless you and give you strength to speak up about what is right and wrong.

You said it for the rest of us who are sitting around thinking it. I am so ashamed of Americans I hesitate to call myself one any more. But I still love this nation (from past memories) and keep praying that God will bring it back to the once great nation that it was. But instead I'm afraid that judgment is going to come from God instead because this country has forgotten our Creator...cast Him and His commandments aside for an immoral life of selfishness and sin. God have mercy on America.

Anon, thanks for your comments. In an earlier blog I wrote of our creator, however you want to call him or her, and how he blessed this new land. He was so pleased that man had tossed aside the chains of oppression and had established a constitution that deemed God and man as owner of our "rights" that he blessed this nation for two centuries. He gave us rich agricultural farm lands, favorable weather and asked only that we work hard, maintain a decent sense of morality and His blessings would continue. We have rapidly strayed from those traits in the last fifty years. I fear we have lost our creator's blessing and are heading for tough times. Even this morning MSNBC was having a big laugh at Tim Tebow's expense because he dropped to his knees and thanked God following a football game. The huge contigent of the liberal army hate anything that smacks of religion...or even of the basic morality of working for what you get, obeying the laws of our land and exercising our citizenship. Again, thanks for your comments.

As a 21-year Navy Vet it chaps my hide to see the demise of our great nation -especially in the brazen manner of the present administration and Congress. The original post is spot on. It amazes me the
Reaction to Tebow and all the political correctness as well as a total lack of accountability. However, I'm quietly confident that God will see us through this. We all need to be vigilant and speak up as this blogger has. Leadership is tough, but we can get it done!

Thanks for reading, Kem, and thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.

This nation is about to go in history. The main problem is SIN of the populace. Spiritual and moral decadence. Total rebellion against the Lord all around, from rich guy on down to a little guy burning with lust, greed and no self control. Checkout these blogs for your own good. Repent people before it is too late. wakeupbabylon.blogspot.com wingsofprophecy.blogspot.com
