There is a powerful conspiracy now at work dismembering America. Piece by piece, much of the spontaneous patriotic solidarity we Americans once held in common has been supplanted with racial tension and socioeconomic class separation. Soon, the only leadership that will prevail over this mess will have to be martial law because a police state and brute force are the only glue strong enough to command the attention and respect of Obama’s new America. We’re divided against ourselves, and one doesn’t have to be much of an expert to discover that the vital pulse of what our founders put together is now missing.
Hitler’s 1923 Beer Hall Putsch happened when a similarly hamstrung Germany found itself with as many political factions as they had voters. And, just like then, today in a hamstrung America, a thousand voices are fighting for the podium and prominence. Just as Hitler then discovered, only those connected with the powers that are already established can reach and move the broadest spectrum of the people. This explains why so many of our politicians have effectively abandoned their backbones and behave as though they are walking on eggs. It’s because if you fall out of the game now, you won’t get another chance. Big Government’s day has come. The media finally has their man on the throne – and if you become too much of a problem with him, you will be out of the picture entirely. For the politico, this is fat city; and the trough is piled high with opportunities prepared by an expert Marxist-racist posing innocently as simply America’s first black president. And as usual, for the rest of Tammany Hall, you just have to know how to play the game in order to make use of this monster’s dark windfall.

Subterfuge and the demoralization of good people always lean heavily upon ignorance, selfishness, and sloth – and right now, all of the slimiest in our nation’s roster of professional leaders are fully aware of their constituency’s indolence and are milking that for all it can yield. The effects of that lethargy have been breathtakingly powerful. You’d have to be a clueless moron not to have noticed that even the most outrageously underhanded and lawless actions perpetrated by our current administration don’t even make headlines with big media anymore (apart from the pestering watchfulness and outcry of faithful grassroots news sites). And, when they do make the news, it’s really obvious that only a comparative handful in this nation actually give a damn. At this weird time in our history, someone could detonate an atomic bomb in the center of any of our major cities; and within 24 hours, most of the posts on Facebook would be back to the normal funny pictures, invitations to silly game sites, and photos of our grandbabies. Truly, the ‘conspiracy’ destroying us feeds on the deliberate, sleepy carelessness of its hapless victims – us. We just let it happen.
John Q. Public, fat with blessings, is asleep at the switch in the most important time in this nation’s struggle for survival. And it’s because of that – because so many of us are apparently more concerned with protecting our own personal comfort zones than defending the goodness of our failing nation – we discover that our fortress’ watchmen have effectively abandoned their duties. A sleepy America has allowed them space to give our enemies carte blanche in the unchecked freedom to come, go, and operate as they please. Because of any number of reasons, good or bad, we’ve allowed our fire to go out. (If you’ve ever been on a campout, you’ve perhaps seen the effects of similar negligence illustrated on a smaller scale: When everybody is sacked out and the campfire dwindles to coals, the glowing eyes that had earlier been out amongst the trees are now completely embodied animals making their way into the campsite. And in the morning, of course, things will be missing – or worse.)
Our founding fathers appointed us all to be policemen. We were to be the cops, the keepers, and custodians of the precious gift of our liberties. We have sorely failed in that job. If ever we had ‘just cause’ to ‘pull our government over’ with search, seizure, and prosecution in mind, it is now. But, as we can clearly see, it’s all words, words, and more words; and nothing is being done. You can cut down Barack Obama all you want, but he must be holding some pretty strong cards, given that so many of the biggest players on both sides of the board now seem to be cooperating with him. If Richard Nixon, Reagan, or GW had pulled half the stuff that our current exec is getting away with, they would have been impeached, prosecuted, and sentenced to 30 years in the electric chair. Nevertheless, our current president can throw a fit and demand his own impunity as he destroys us, and we sit and take it. Regardless of what conspiracy now moves within the White House, the first one we need to address and root out is the strategy behind our own insistence upon defending our apathy.
