My mother told me years ago that she expects another civil war in this country. She was hoping that she would be dead and gone before it happens. Given how healthy my parents are, I'm wondering if that'll happen.
This next civil war won't be between states themselves, mom says. It'll be between Rural and independent people, and the sheeple who populate the big cities and demand bigger and more powerful overlords for themselves and everyone else. The seeds of this were set, in my opinion, by the Seventeenth Amendment, which changed how the US Senate was elected.
For those who don't know (and given the state of US Education today I really can't blame you for that) the 17th Amendment to the US constitution took the US Senate, which was elected by STATE legislatures, and changed it so that the US Senate was elected by popular vote in the state.
In short, we have two houses of Representatives now. One very critical check in the system of checks and balances was removed. The Senate might as well not exist, because it's been changed to resemble something else.
In any case.... the more I look around, the more I'm starting to come to the conclusion that we're fucked. Well and truly fucked. THE GOVERNMENT IS IN CHARGE OF OUR ECONOMY, PEOPLE!!!!! The VERY SAME PEOPLE who fucked it up so badly are now in control of it!
The country that used to be the United States of America is now the United Socialist States of America. The
We're fucked. Buy guns and ammo. And if Obama gets elected through the cheating methods of ACORN and like-minded traitors, buy LOTS of ammo. Because McCain isn't going to change anything. He's not going to make anything better. He's not going to reverse the damage. He's just going to give us more time to prepare, that's all. He's a band-aid on an arterial wound. He's part of the problem.
