This Is America Today. . .

So Many Have Recently Asked...  What Have We Become?
by The Old Hippie Because The Absentee Revolt Is so Telling


What Have We Become?  This Is What We Have Become:
A nation of, by, and for the corporations, not the people.
A nation that allowed three corrupt national elections to go un-corrected.
A nation where those same corrupt corporate voting machines are increasing in use.
A nation that is the #1 most polluting nation on the planet.
A nation that allowed over 400 environmental laws/regulations to be "disappeared."
A nation that is the #1 imprisoned nation on the planet - and in history.
A nation that allows and condones the torture of human beings.
A nation that has officially given up habeas corpus protection.
A nation that is still allowing a network of secret torture chambers to exist.
A nation that is the only 1st-world nation without universal health care.
A nation that is the only 1st-world nation that still executes prisoners.
A nation that allows sneering oil CEO's to not have to "swear in" when testifying.
A nation that shortly finds out that they lied through their teeth - does nothing.
A nation that confronted with mountains of evidence of corruption - does nothing.
A nation whose majority now admits to the truth of their lies - still hasn't revolted.
A nation that actually thinks the Constitutional Democracy system still works.
A nation that knows the next election will again be using even more of the same corporately corrupted voting machines that have been proven to have been allowed to corrupt the last three national elections, and so far, nothing "real" has been done to stop another election from being corrupted by them again.

A nation so deep in denial of reality that it is blind to its own demise.

If you happen to be one of those 35% that currently still approve of this administration, I truly hate you, for the allowed manipulation of your ignorance, for your contribution to the destruction of this nation, a once great nation that could only be destroyed from within, by the sneeringly and arrogantly corrupted manipulation of the fears, ignorance, and stupidity of "citizens" like you. . .

The most troubling thing to me is the new American gulag system where our enemies disappear. I think we should beat on the fact that these are "no-law zones"where the wspooks make the rules. No congress will debate them. No judge will review them. They tried to make Gitmo a "no-law zone", but it became known and our courts are stopping that (though way too slowly). These new discoveries about the east Europeon prisons scare me to death. I have no doubt that there are people who can claim US citizenship in these secret places. Has anyone been taken out of the US to one of these nameless cells? Who can know? Not us. It's really none orf our business. It's only6 being done in our name.
