    Its been on my mind for awhile, America is ill. We are not talking the common cold we are talking
    she is infected in the worst of ways. And so far the only cure seems to be removing parts to fix here.
    Yea I am trying to give some analogy to all the crazy events, but in reality America is not ill she is dying and breathing in her last breaths of freedom.

    But how does a nation of free and patriotic people turn into a dying nation.
    Sadly the illness comes from within, a century ago people fled the large cities in America to keep and hold freedom they would travel to the edges of the USA to get and hold that freedom in their grasps.
    But even moving a thousand miles did not stop the infection that was growing over 100 years ago. It would be equal to getting a common cold and then find it was cancer. Seems that is where we are and the cancer has nearly devoured our life.

    Not in the history of the world and not even the Romans as advanced as they were, not until now has world ever saw instant affect on the acts they would do. Now in this last century, technology has brought us instant fame, and instant death all within minutes or seconds of the events. If one would guess it would be technology that was used to inform us, which was the radio would soon dictate how we think and how to act. The technology you and I see and deal with is not something humans are made or designed for. Yes many love there 300 Channels, smart phones and even posting on line and face book. But these acts and uses of such technology is separating us from actual human interaction. As kids growing up we saw the same tragedies as there are now, but the news would be swift and would pass. Even the assassination of JFK only stayed news worthy a short time. But now we are inundated with billions of peaces of information to process which is impossible, if you ask anyone who has been on the front lines they will tell you such sensory overload is stressful and in fact often leads to PTSD. Which many would say in combat is a possible and very plausible yes even from trained men and women. But now we take average men and women and subject them to such over loads that are only usually only to be seen in combat. This alone tries to force a society to accept the mass affect all at once and that simply will not happen. And you will have people grasping to control what to them is world spiraling out of control, when in reality these are already over and their affect should not Echo but it does and magnifies 10x over.

    In Roseburg, Oregon there was a shooting at the College some 10 people died including the shooter.
    In Los Angeles the same day there were 35 shootings and 8 fatalities in one day there. You wont hear it reported only on police logs if one googles and searches, but it happens every day by criminals. Is it any less awful no. But the Roseburg shooting in the last 2 days resulted in trillions comments , social media posts, Press conferences, commentaries the amount is mind numbing and overwhelming to anyone that would dare try and keep up. Were the people who died in L.A. on 10/1/2015 lives any less meaningful or less valuable ? No, yet there is a flood, a tsunami of information on 10 people that are now dead.

    Its this control of information that our government and media can at command throw at the entire population in minutes that causes this illness. And it occurs all day long every day of the year every second of every minute. Yet you and I will only hear on TV, Media and social networks, or from our Government what they choose to feed us to get the desired reaction, or over reaction. This form of conditioning makes America sick in two way. It desensitizes us to horrors and tragedies. It conditions us to accept control and guidance from these sources. And many will blindly follow these sources never seeing the reality that is right under our noses. America is dying not because she caught some virus, she created the virus herself and is infecting every American who will blindly follow what they are told. You might say its a illness one can be infected by having ignorance of their own lives.

    In 2016 the Antis will use what they can knowing the country is numb and ill and will try and force feed a result. We can not allow our country to die, we must breath life back into our country and I think the only way that can occur is if we all pitch in to save her life.

    I won't preach to the choir as everyone with half a brain sees what is happening and they don't need me to repeat the problems. What I have to say is decision time is comming and since they have divided us you are going to have to pick a side to stand on. Choose well

    We have grown out as a nation of draft dodging socialists.

    There's no fear of God, there's no pride in country, no sense of community or family, and no personal responsibility.
    All these add up to children growing up in an evironment that creats and promotes mental illness.

    Personally I believe a lot of this also started with the civil rights era. Not giving blacks freedom or equality, every living thing deserves that, but the belief that they are owed something. And setting up social programs to "assist" them. It created a new slave society, maybe that was the intent, and the politicians found that to keep in power and weath they can buy votes with other peoples money. It's only a matter of time before this country goes full blown liberal. As those of us who believe in the constitution pass away, and our children are indoctrinated into liberalism by our socialist school systems the conservatives of this country will be only a memory.

    "There's no fear of God, there's no pride in country, no sense of community or family, and no personal responsibility."

    Very well put, clear. Most of America seems to agree we are on the wrong track, but so few seem to know, or at least admit, what the real problems are.

    That's because they are too focused on kardashians, lattes, and the latest iphones

    You're gonna spin yourselves into an early grave thinking like that.
    Was almost there myself till I figured out what was what.
    Everybody's nuts! Me, you, Taku, even NoFlinch's dog!
    Now, with my flashblinded insight, I no longer worry about whether or not he or she is or isn't
    Moving on to the next questions:
    Does it directly affect me?
    Can I do anything to make it less bad, more better?
    Did anyone see or not see me not do it?
    Leave the area immediately!

    Yep the Roman people thought the same thing at one time and the empire very similar to ours crumbled.
    But that said I tend to look at if we do not fix it whom will? What the Gov will do wont be a fix, it will be a dismantling.

    It seems to come down to a nation of self entitlement and no accountability wow what a dangerous combination. Again the Roman empire endured this same situation and they ended shortly after .

    I stress more for the freedoms and environment for my babies when they grow up.

    "If violence should come, let it come in my time so my children may know peace"

    It's either freedom or free stuff!!! Chose wisely young America!! My advise is to hang up your I-phone and learn what it is to be human again. There will come a day when you will not crave another's touch and your phone is all you know. Is that day here? God Bless America

    This is very true, if you watch the show ALONE I think was on Discovery they sent a group of guys out in the wilderness alone and as hard as it was to survive out there they all came back wanting human interaction. Its how we are wired, its what makes us human. Wolves, and Canines are much like us without others we are not the animal we should be.

    I mean I would much rather be sitting around a camp fire talking about this stuff with you guys having a cold one then typing on this dang keyboard.

    One of the best times I had as a child was in an explorer post for search and rescue. I was around 12yrs old.
    We would hike in the woods, make our own shelter, make fire, cook our food with what we carried in our search packs. Then just sit around the camp fire and talk ish.

    -- preach to your neighbors, coworkers, step in when you hear someone filling an unknowing persons head with lies.

    Many people are stupid and easily convinced. This works both left and right. I get on my soapbox every day and cross my fingers I don't end up in human resources.

    Gotta hand it to ya' DuneHopper. I'm impressed. Great insight!

    So the "people in charge" are seeking a "solution" to the "problem." The real power strokers (yall can name 'em).... want to impose Australian type confiscation and impose a tax on all American taxpayers to pay for confiscation and destruction. If they work the government/media lather just right they might come close this time. Our House of Representatives is in chaos and the Senate is run by republicrats. The voters, especially the Free Americans in Oregon, have no voice in the government and the media vilifies us at every opportunity.

    BUT! There is a solution to mass killings by nut-jobs. Medical and mental heath records are entered into a data base by diagnostic pay codes. The data base is accessible to numerous government agencies. It's all in there. There are certain diagnoses that are severely in conflict with weapons possession. Let the government search (they do it all the time), find these individuals, give 'em due process and make sure they don't get guns.

    This is not a sanitary plan. The government application of such a law could quickly broaden to any excuse to take guns. Unfortunately we lack a government that can be trusted on any level. Something like this is probably coming though.

    The only real solution is arming and training the good guys and drop the gun-free BS. That won't happen. It is not part of the Power-stroker's end game.

    There is a great book....Government of Wolves by John W. Whitehead.

    FortRock out.
