The Supreme Court SUCKS.
First the Supreme Court okays the McCain-Feingold Bi-partisan tyrant act of 2002, making me a potential criminal, and then they grant rights to some guys that want to kill me. Sweet.
The question has been raised on various blogs, including the old Kim Du Toit blog and The Smallest Minority . . at what point should US Citizens rise up in arms and overthrow the government? hate to say it, but that point was reached and passed in 2002, for those who love liberty and justice in the spirit of the original constitution. But the moment has passed, aand the support isn't there. One can't, alone, overthrow and start anew. & facts have to be faced - the current crop of US citizenz wants a dictatorship. For pity's sake, look at seat-belt laws. We are so eager to boss around our neighbors for their own good that we're willing to toss them in jail over a fucking seat belt. We no longer have the courage to allow our neighbors their freedom.
Yes, I do think seat belts are good for most people. Yes, I do wear a seat belt. But that's none of your business, just as it's none of my business whether or not you wear one.
For the 14 or so Americans who are still Christians, here's a bible verse for you:
"But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters."
That's from I Peter, chapter 4, verse 15.
That's what Peter, the rock upon whom Christ built his church, had to say about poking your nose into other people's business - & if ensuring your neighbor gets a fine for not wearing a seatbelt isn't nosy - as all in favor of seat belt laws do - , I don't know what it.
Anyway, I'm blue about the state of the red white & blue. There are bunch of US citizens in the 50 states, but I think lately there are more Americans-in-spirit in Poland and the Czech Republic than here.
o well. Change happens, and the US is falling from splendor. I suppose it had to happen sooner or later - that's just the way of the world.
Essay question: In the year 2033, when the US Government has finally toppled under its own weight, which countr(ies) will be the superpower(s), and what effect will this have on the remaining countries?
