Some interesting quotes from around the web showing just how deep the moral crisis in democracy America has plunged into [2RGPCVCDSBFQ] .
The government is run by criminals whose only allegiance is to large corporations who line their pockets and provide $multimillion salaries when they retire to give rhetorically retarded speeches and hold vacuous chair positions of various committees and universities designed to look busy and important while accomplishing nothing beyond more corruption.
“Since 2005, an average of 23 Americans per year have been killed through terrorism, mostly outside of the US. “More Americans die of falling televisions and other appliances than from terrorism,” writes Nicholas Kristof in the New York Times, and “15 times as many die by falling off ladders.” The US has spent $8 trillion on the military and homeland security since 2001.”
The “War on Terrorism” is an important crime against humanity. It is a cover for the fact that America is now the world’s largest terrorist organization. $8trillion mostly wasted dollars the effect of which is to dismantle the constitution of the US and rob you of your civil freedoms and money.
The middle-class has been destroyed while the 1% have increased their wealth several times over during the last couple decades. The chasm between the rich and poor is growing larger by the day and is the largest in the developed world.
Figures vary, but the top 1% hold own roughly 42% of the wealth in the US. The next 19% hold about 48% of the wealth, which means 80% of US citizens own about 10% of the wealth. Those statistics are stunning and tragic, and getting worse.
“In terms of types of financial wealth, the top one percent of households have 35% of all privately held stock, 64.4% of financial securities, and 62.4% of business equity. The top ten percent have 81% to 94% of stocks, bonds, trust funds, and business equity, and almost 80% of non-home real estate. Since financial wealth is what counts as far as the control of income-producing assets, we can say that just 10% of the people own the United States of America.”
10% of the people own the United States of America. Land of opportunity. Land of the free and home of the brave. That top 1% is now closing an iron fist around the rest of the world, violating our right to freedom, speech, reasonable healthcare, and virtually every other right we ought to be strengthening, not seeing destroyed.
Rights to privacy and due process of law have been destroyed by “war on terror” legislation.

Thank goodness we still have SOME (few) people willing to stand up for what’s RIGHT and get beyond the constant LIES from ‘our’ government. They have NO authority to spy on ANY of us, terrorists or not. If they can’t find enough evidence to convince a proper judge (NOT one of the rubber stamping FISC judges) to give them a warrant, they do NOT need to do any spying, PERIOD! All these people who are so willing to give up our freedom for some imaginary great good government saviour are delusional. If they want to live their lives depending on someone else to take care of them, they are welcome to go move to some other country. THIS country is about FREEDOM and individual liberty. I am NOT willing to give up my freedoms so you can feel better with your illusions you have somehow got “safety” in return.”
Thank God for heroes such as Edward Snowden, who had the courage to risk his life in order to reveal how the NSA, the National Security Organization, is a bunch of lying, criminal thugs that are utterly disdainful of the principles this country was founded upon. And let’s not forget that the FBI just murdered dissident journalist Michael Hastings.
That’s right, the American government has now been reduced to murdering its own citizens. We are a banana republic.
“A lawsuit filed against the National Security Agency by a coalition of 19 organizations illustrates how some Federal policies violate American rights, regardless of demographics, political affiliation or personal beliefs.“The First Amendment protects the freedom to associate and express political views as a group, but the NSA’s mass, untargeted collection of Americans’ phone records violates that right by giving the government a dramatically detailed picture into our associational ties,” said EFF Legal Director Cindy Cohn. “Who we call, how often we call them, and how long we speak shows the government what groups we belong to or associate with, which political issues concern us, and our religious affiliation. Exposing this information — especially in a massive, untargeted way over a long period of time — violates the Constitution and the basic First Amendment tests that have been in place for over 50 years.” ”
As for the quasi-official governmental organization called the Federal Reserve, a private group of bankers whose sole purpose is to steal your money, a lot more needs to be said in further articles. That Bernanke didn’t have the courage to begin tapering the $85billion a month being stolen from US taxpayers and given to private banks so they can speculate in the stock market, I wonder if US citizens are beginning to wake up to any of this?
Peter Rosam said:
“Think about it. The U.S. Treasury continually issues debt (U.S. bonds), that is, the people’s debt, the FRB then prints money out of thin air and buys the people’s debt, the FRB then delivers the people’s debt to the Wall Street banks, the Wall Street banks, other than towards minimal token loans, toss the money at financial markets which cause prices and the banks’ profits to skyrocket to unprecedented heights, Bernanke testifies to the Congress whose clowns do not have a clue so as to have the slightest understanding how this scheme will ultimately end (most likely in a financial calamity), Bernanke is prepared to answer all Congress’ questions positively, or if need be, with some positive spin because he knows what the questions will be before he enters Congress’ holy chamber of idiots, so they toast Bernanke as America’s savior.
Is this any way to run a country?”
What he means is, the Federal Reserve is a dog and pony show, a shell game, a con, and you are the sucker, the victim. It is your money they are stealing. It is your children’s future that is being bankrupted.
Do you care? When will you start to take action?
