Today a few more Americans will wake from their slumber of ignorance, rub the sleep of disinformation from their eyes and see their country for the first time through the eyes of truth. Somewhere, somehow America has become the land of the subjective rather than the land of inalienable rights. The rule of law, The Bill of Rights and the Constitution are no longer the cornerstone’s on which we are being governed. Today we are being ruled over by those who have mastered the art of deception and can spin their wicked agenda’s into the prettiest packages that will sell the American people on their newly altered truths for the mere price of their freedoms and liberty.
Once one awakens from this slumber of ignorance and propaganda it can feel as if they are still dreaming or possibly living in an episode of Seinfeld where they have entered into Jerry’s Bizzaro America. Good is bad, God is evil, up is down, winners are losers and right is the center of a very hard left. A true testament of accomplishment for the busy spin doctors of deceit that spew these altered truths to create their desired misconception of the day. The goals of such messages are not meant to inform or educate Americans but rather to re-educate and distract. It has become difficult if not impossible for the average person to find the core truths these days and this is not by accident.
So the questions these stunned newcomers to reality usually ask is when did this happen? How did this happen? The answer is simple, it happened over time. It happened during the course of America’s busy lives. It happened during The Ed Sullivan Show and American Idol. It happened while we were sleeping thinking somebody else would stay vigilant over our freedoms and way of life while we could just tend to our own busy lives. Each generation being lulled deeper into a methodical, deliberate slumber designed to keep the eyes of our Nation closed so her citizens would not take notice of the thieves that were slipping quietly into the most trusted places of public office, our schools and our most sacred places of worship attacking our morals. Now these thieves of liberty have become strong enough and emboldened enough to target the very heart of America, our families. The long reach of government regulation and control has found its way into our homes and is trying to play the role of mother and father to our children while we are left standing on the sidelines of their lives.
The Futures of our children are fading fast and yet so many cannot shake off their sleep induced haze to see the danger signs going up all around them. Many will just think this cannot really be happening but for those waking they will ask how did this happen? The answer to how this happened is the same answer to the question of when it happened. Time coupled with apathy is the culprit and as the beloved Dr. Seuss asked, “How did it get so late so fast?” We have been rocked to sleep by a slow, methodical and reassuring lullaby that has been singing us the praises of a “New Deal” , “Hope and Change” and of a land where all American’s will move “Forward” in equality and security.
The newest version of the American lullaby is a serenade ever so gently or maybe not so gently reminding us that we have nothing to fear if we have nothing to hide. In other words those that are waking up and fearing what they see are the ones that are to be feared. We have been conditioned to believe that this is America and bad things can’t and don’t happen in the shadows because the media would be out in front of it on our behalf keeping us informed. The American media that for generations have been entrusted by the people to stand guard and keep our government accountable were considered as America’s watchdogs. This just in; (to those that have been asleep) in a not so sudden turn of events the media has become the lap dogs of the government working side by side with politicians and their consultants to set the talking points they want spoon fed to the public. Sadly we are learning so late in the game that we have put our trust and our very lives in the hands of those that have not deserved the faith we instilled in them.
In America today it is becoming all too apparent that the promises of safety and security are becoming more palatable than having to wake up and fight to protect ones rights, the very rights that were given to us by God himself and defended throughout the years by the blood and sacrifices of the patriots before us. Far too many people today are willing to exchange their God given rights for a false sense of security and a free ride and the marauders of our Republic are taking full advantage of America’s sleepy yet fearful state of mind that is allowing them to strip the citizens of the rights they are entitled to. Who is doing such a thing many may ask? Take your pick! We have most recently the NSA, the IRS, EPA, DHS, TSA, UN, SCOTUS, etc…along with their issues they create behind closed doors for the sole purpose of control by instilling fear and a feeling of helplessness ranging from climate control to birth control.
For this apathy and lack of awareness we cannot just blame one generation. America has been on a downward spiral for some time now from the “Greatest Generation” to the “Boomers” and into our techie and moody Gen X and Y’s each generation drifting further and further from what America was founded on. And now our children who are being called the “Millenials” are in a death spiral along with the rest of us as the Rip Van Winkles of America sleep on and the Media sings their lullaby. Keep sleeping America and we will all go down in history as the Last generations to see America as she was supposed to be. We will be known as generations Z as in Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
