So we have finally arrived.
Based on the "legal" dissolution of a city government in the US, Democracy is no longer the law of the land.
We the People have placed OUR POWER of self-determination into the hands of politicians, who we then TRUST with OUR POWER, to manage responsibily on our behalf and for our benefit, and to do so within the bounds we all agreed upon when we TRUSTED THEM with OUR POWER.
That is how a Democracy is supposed to function.
However, it is now LEGAL in the United States to disassemble a city's government.
People, if you cannot see THIS IS THE LINE
- then please tell me - if this is NOT the line, then what the FUCK, is?
(You're an idiot of course!!!)
The CONTRACT is broken.
This is NOT about MICHIGAN.
This is about ALL OF US.
Keep talking about the 2012 elections. Keep being distracted by open mics (sorry, I don't believe in "accidents" and Mr. Obama). Keep being distracted by fine political theater, like we saw in the House today, which has so many a flutter, which, in the end, signifies NOTHING. Why?
Because what happened in the House is MEANINGLESS in the face of what occurred to ALL AMERICANS in Michigan today.
(O.M.G. :eek: what happened???)
I swore an oath to defend our Constitution, and I fear it is too late; there is nothing left to defend.
If you cannot see the END - the DEATH - of our Constitution - in the events in Michigan, I urge you to read up on 1930's Germany, and how the German people did NOTHING when their government was eaten from the inside by vile greedy monsters.
If you carry on tomorrow, and the next day, and the next, as if all is the same, as if it is "business as usual," and keep merely strolling along while Rome burns all around us...then all I can do is welcome you to your future...good fucking luck...
Time to stand up. Time to fight. The free ride is over. Now you have to pay for your freedom.
Or recognize you are CHOOSING to give up your freedom in favor of this fucked up, unjust, immoral SHAM.
