This Sure Isn’t The America I Grew Up With

TND Guest Contributor:  Dave Kranzler | nda-rip

 I just can’t believe that the average American looks at the stock market and says, “this country is in great shape – just look at the Dow.”  There is no way that the public is THAT stupid or blind.

The increasing degree of corruption in our financial and political system continues to blow my mind.  Every day I uncover new evidence and facts about just how rotten to the core our system has become.  What’s even more staggering is that the average American just “turns the other cheek” and let’s it happen.  The Government has zero opposition to its frightening move towards a Totalitarian State.

And this stage show going on DC between Democrats and Republicans is nothing more than idle entertainment.  MTV for the political class and for the masses who are glued on a daily basis to the farce that is disguised as news being broadcast on Fox News, CNN, Bloomberg and CNBC.  Amazingly to me, intelligent, educated adults just stare and absorb and accept.  It’s Huxley’s “Brave New World” unfolding before my eyes.  What passes for “news” and accurate reporting of the facts is a complete insult to the intelligence of the few of us left who have the willingness to question what’s happening and to grasp the real truth.  The truth is that this country is collapsing.

Whatever you want to call going on in DC right now, it is an unmitigated fact that the end result will be an even bigger disaster for our country.  What really staggers me is that Americans are pounding the table for a resolution to the budget and debt ceiling impasse.  For what end?  So that the Government can continue its deficit spending and INCREASE the ability to print money and create more debt in order to fund that spending.  It’s the equivalent of the chickens in the barnyard cheering for Colonel Sanders – on their way to the slaughterhouse.   You got that America:  anyone who is supporting either Party in this DC debate is no better than one of Colonel Sanders’ chickens – about to be fried and eaten.

I was having a discussion with a friend earlier this morning about what’s happened to this country:

It’s amazing how robotic Americans have become – Huxley’s brave new world is here.  What irritates me the most is this insistence and widespread acceptance that you have to be “socially/politically correct.”

The people running the show behind the scenes – the true elitists – were brilliant in choosing a black man to be President.  His policies are more fascist than were Bush’s but you can’t disagree with Obama or you risk being labelled “anti-black.”   I had that aspect figured out right after he was elected in ’08.

You can’t name one campaign promise Obama has fulfilled other than Obamacare, which is going to probably be – ironically – the sledge hammer (not straw) that breaks this country’s back.

And if you think I’m wrong about our country slipping into Orwell’s or Huxley’s vision for our future back in the 1940’s, just think about the significance of these current images of our country:


“Of course, things are a bit different now since we became a nation of overfed clowns dedicated to getting something for nothing, but despite the abject futility of American life in its current incarnation, there is room for plenty of violence and destruction. The sad and peculiar angle of the current struggle is that both sides in government wish heartily to keep all the rackets of daily life going — they just disagree on the distribution method of the vig.”  James Kunstler: Creepily Close
