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.
