"Birds born in a cage think flying is an illness."
I laugh, even if my laughter has small traces of sadness. Most of those in my tribe are those who call themselves anarchists, rebels, and/or revolutionaries. Then, just weeks ago, many of these same “rebels” were saying, “Oh, no, the government is shutdown. We need to do something about it.” Those who normally call for the end of government are suddenly stressed when it is shut down? I’m amazed at how many live their lives immersed completely in their own hypocrisy… and I’ve been very busy in quite a few fights over this past week.
If I had to put a number to it, I’d say that at least 80% of Americans are invested in the government. That means they are in organizations, institutions, or companies that get funding or other support from the government — or, alternatively, they have at least one person (friend, family, or otherwise) who is significant in their lives, and that one person (or more) is supported by the government. And that investment has bought them out. These people are bought and paid for and, no, they very much do not want to stop the government.
It doesn’t matter how many bombs are dropped on innocent people, it doesn’t matter how massive and intrusive the spy campaigns are on any shore, it doesn’t matter how deeply the privacy of every human has been invaded, and it doesn’t matter how many innocent people are kidnapped and tortured and killed by the government. It doesn’t matter. People who are invested will find a “good reason” to excuse the government for the terrible atrocities it commits, because they have been bribed… and bribed well.
The only terrorists that ever existed are the ones who hold the thrones around the world, and those who stay in the shadows and whisper in the ears of the thrones.
So take your thirty silver.
But those coins are covered in blood, lovelies.
And you’ll never wash out the smell of blood.
Sign this petition [Here on WhiteHouse dot Gov], to add your voice to a vote of “No Confidence” in the 112th Congress. From the petition:
Around the world, we are seeing people in many countries rising up together in support of fixing the problems being caused by their government. When our country was begun, the option to change our government was granted and protected. However, this now seems impossible with the federal system today because it is so full of power struggles, in-fighting, bureaucratic red tape, corporate control, secret agendas & rulings that undermine our open democracy and many more problems.
In essence, it is time for us to clean house. We need a national vote about the entire federal level of government. A “No Confidence” vote by the citizens means that all those in power at the Federal level resign and we can vote for an entirely new group of Representatives, who will work only on restoring America.
