The term “sensory overload” has been associated with a form of post traumatic stress disorder, where one becomes so overwhelmed with the things around them that they begin to withdraw and shut down. Similar to living next to a railroad track, eventually your brain gets used to the noise–and you just block it out. Could this be what is happening to America?
Over the course of time, we as Americans have been faced with ongoing war, terror attacks, mass killings, high unemployment, corruption, and scandal at the highest levels in government (and a mainstream media spin cycle that is faster than a washing machine.) I believe that it has come to a point where the typical American is now just shutting down emotionally, spiritually, and politically, and just letting the chips fall where they may.
Where would we be today if our Founding Fathers had done that? Not in a very good place, I’m sure.

America is becoming nothing more than a zombie nation. Our young people are consumed with the use of their I-phones and extremely graphic video games. There is increasingly less face-to-face social interaction, unless of course you are looking at your best friend while you text them. Our government is pushing an agenda that is actively removing any reference to God from our society, a radical gay agenda that is corrupting our children at an early age through the use of Common Core, and a culture of ignoring our vets who have served with distinction and heroism in order to defend and spread the cause of Liberty and Freedom–many of whom are suffering from PTSD after being subjected to the atrocities of war.
America is currently in a total state of chaos; but at this point, very few seem to care. I do not believe that American apathy is a choice at this point. We, as Americans, must learn to focus on what made America great, get back to our roots, and stand and fight for everything that we believe in. Only then will America have a chance to survive.
As always fellow Patriots, stay safe and be aware of your surroundings.
