Becoming dependent on crumb tyrants

America is gaining speed on the road to self-destruction. Once accomplished, the citizens of this great nation will be without resources to restore it. Our freedoms will be gone and we’ll be bound in shackles of our own making. That statement is politically incorrect because the truth isn’t tolerated today, not by the national “news” media nor others who think that Americans are too weak and inept to provide for ourselves, that we must stretch out our hands and render our minds vacant as we bend toward Washington and beg for crumbs from the government table, while we become dependent upon those crumbs and endorse the tyrants who steal them for us and allow us to exist.

Thank God the crumb tyrants allow us to exist! They feed us, they clothe us, they bus us and school us, heat us and cool us, so long as we remain loyal lovers of their crumbs. What a vision — once-mighty Americans scrambling and fighting each other for crumbs! What a pitiful collection of shameless people it takes to even consider that political prophecy in America. Yet we’re facing the reality of it. It’s so close we may have only one more vote to fulfill it, or defeat it.

Fellow citizens, don’t look for the truth of this anywhere except within yourselves. Examine who you are and what you are. Be honest about it, then vote accordingly.
