Addicted to Drama??
I'm curious. Everyday someone, or myself posts some radical statement about the US being overrun or collapsing from with-in, or states seceding, or armed revolution, socialism as a new way of life, national bankruptcy, etc. etc,ad nauseam. I just replied to a previous post and have posted a couple of times that a tax revolt/strike would affect change. Others have similar, or radically different solutions. The problem is, solutions to what, exactly? Socialism? Corruption in DC? Politicians re-writing the Constitution? Corruption at local levels? Wars fought for profit/greed?
Or has anything actually changed, in our lifetime. I'm 53, and looking back( in my lifetime), we've had the Cold War, Vietnam, Woodstock, flat-out crazy and horribly corrupt presidents and politicians,Ponzi schemes,( anyone remember the pyramid letter schemes?) huge recessions, economic booms, changes in technology that damn near keeps up with the Jetsons. Desert Storm, 9/11, 9/12, lonely terrorist Jihadists, a Jihadist president, school shootings, rampant unemployment,unsustainable birth rates(the Muslims outnumber the world in birth rate by about 3:1) and federally funded abortions coming right up.
Survivalists and Glenn Beck telling us to buy gold and bury seeds in sealed packs. People hoarding thousands and thousands of rounds of ammunition, for when the SHTF. Most soldiers are unlikely to expend (in combat) as much ammo as some urban guerrilla wannabes have stashed. Some guys have 50,000 small pistol primers stashed, and shoot 200 hundred rounds a year. I saw a post on a Bigfoot forum( yep a Bigfoot forum, and these folks are serious-I know others saw the same post) about Bigfoot, elves and fairies braiding horses manes-really.
We're still here. At the moment, we're still free, at least the MOST free of any other place in the world. We have an amazing document in the Constitution, that if we get off our asses, can be used to force our politicians to protect our freedom.
The part I'm curious about, and a little unsure about personally, are things really all that different, or are we, me, just addicted to the drama of it all.
I'm sick of watching Fox 24/7 to see what new horror awaits us.
