The Crossroads

February 17, 2011

    

      What on earth has happened to the American people?   Have we all forgot what this country and it’s flag stands for?  We were a nation of free people, a nation of laws, and a nation of the most generous people on earth.  Yes, I said “were”.  Now we are divided and are quickly becoming a police state as a result.  As I see it, our great nation is heading in a dangerous direction.  We will soon come to a crossroad and a decision will have to be made.  Left turn is government controlled police state, right turn is a deadly battle for freedom and liberty.  The left turn will be less violent, the sheeple will give in to the government demands, while looking at the wrong end of the government gun barrel.  The right turn will make the first Civil War look like a picnic in Central Park, a bloody fight against oppression..  The signs are in place, the beginnings of large scale dissent have begun.  The American people have failed at keeping the freedoms bestowed upon us at the birth of the United States of America.  Are we strong enough to regain those freedoms? Or are we conforming cowards?

Think about our countries name, the United States of America.  Are we United today?  Hell no we’re not united!  Because of that, we have opened the door to oppression.  There are basically two ideologies in the current  Civil War in the United States, conservative and liberal.  The war is conducted via words in every form of media at our disposal.  It’s the perfect storm created by evil people who wish neither side freedom.  While we expend our energy fighting amongst one another over  ideology, the elite are building a fence around all of us.  The gate is starting to close, the crossroads are close, time to think about where you stand in life.
 

The Department of Homeland Security  have forced law abiding citizens  into illegal, unconstitutional searches  just to get on an airplane.  The same tactics were used at this past Super Bowl, where ticket holders waited in lines for two plus hours to get in Cowboys Stadium.  The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures when the searched party has a “reasonable expectation of privacy“. The amendment specifically also requires search and arrest warrants be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause.  Specifically, it reads:  

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
To continue the onslaught of  division and fear in your life, Homeland Security has started a propaganda program known as “If you see something, say something”  which I liken to Nazi Germany propaganda to get citizens to spy on one another and report to the authorities.  Over 80% of arrests and detentions of German citizens  were a result of citizen spying.  This occurred prior to and during WWII.  WTF!  Why aren’t we screaming bloody murder over this?  Have we become a nation of spineless cowards? 
     
 Since September 11, 2001, the government has steadily increased their unconstitutional searches in the name of security.  We seem to be constantly reminded of how much danger we are in.  There are  terrorists , funded and sponsored our own government.  Terrorists are the replacement for the Cold War, invented by a government that knows how to sell fear.  These unconstitutional intrusions will grow rapidly as we reach the crossroads.  Division between the left and right will come to a boiling point.  It’s the perfect storm!
 
Most Americans don’t even know whats coming their way.  Austerity measures by states and municipalities will further divide the people.  The dollar is being purposely devalued. Gas and food prices on a constant uphill trend.   Issues like Obamacare, immigration, abortion and the deficit all clouding the minds and further dividing the left and right.  What choices will you make when the day of decision comes?  Will you be meager and willfully become a lower class slave to your rulers?  Or will you stand up for yourself and your family and resist the rulers?  Those are your decisions, prepare to make them!   
 
My friends, it will not be hard to see the events unfold around our country to support my thesis.  Americans will soon be forced into oppression and tyranny, with little hope for liberty and all unalienable rights stripped from existence.  If you chose that direction, kiss your dignity goodbye.  They have divided us, the only step left is the conquering part.  I’m watching with keen eyes and an open mind.  I can only hope you’ll turn right with me.  See you at the crossroads!

    Very good article G, very good.. Not only is this country being divided, they are totally un-doing the constitution as it was written. They are changing everything about it to suit them & only them. They don’t listen to what we, the American people are saying. They might hear us, but they’re not listening to us. They are doing everything they can to to take away our dignity, our freedoms, our rights as humans.

      THanks Judy!

      With some hard work getting the things that matter out to the public, we might be able to change things. We’ll see! Keep fighting the good fight!

    i know which direction im lookin, nice article g,, and true, ive been watching for years now,

      February 17, 2011 3:03 am

      Keep watching! There are so many things that people are missing when it comes to the truth, it’s amazing!

  3. February 17, 2011 4:11 am

    I doubt the public will be able to substantially changes thing my friend. Here’s why I think so:

    1. The Republicans are against us almost as much as the Left is. Remember it was the Right that brought us Homeland Security in the first place. These fusion centers putting out these terrorism “intelligence” analysis’s were started under GW Bush. Whichever side of the political spectrum controls the administration will insure the centers focus on the opposition.

    2. With the efforts now to extend the portions of the Patriot Act that have sunset clauses we clearly see the continued support by both the Right and the Left to ignore and violate the US Constitution. I would suspect the federal courts, to include SCOTUS, will continue to allow these breaches. It shows we have no “friends” in any depth in the government or Congress.

    3. The numbers likely needed in a true majority to force the government to heed the people’s desires and reform the path this nation is on doesn’t exist. Unfortunately there are enough who cherish to goal of government dominating lives so that all are treated “equally,” that no one does with less, that the wealth is wasted away to “secure” the future of all citizens, that we will go through a – for lack of a batter word – socialist period until our nation collapses as we saw Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union do. In the course of this period the United States will become a second rate nation.

    4. We are seeing less and less responsiveness by the forces of government towards the people. people still want to believe that the police are here to ‘protect and to serve.’ They are, but not the citizenry. They are protecting and serving the government – at all levels, as they are directed to for their very survival as organizations in an increasingly hostile environment as the people squirm under the oppression of the government bureaucracies. The government will steadily allow the people more freedoms – as long as those freedoms satisfy and continue the dumbing down of the populace (think legalized drugs for instance) – allowing government to continue their oppressions.

    Now, all I’ve pointed out is opinion – my personal opinions of course. Many will think I am now certified as a conspiracy theorist or kook, so be it. But, spend some time studying the histories of nations and determine for yourself if there are parallels to what occurred in those nations as they declined and morphed into something different and “new.”

    Anyway, just my two cents (or buck-fifty). Apologies for being so wordy. 🙂

      Great post! I would like, till the AM, to respond as best I can. Your “buck-fifty” as always worthy! Keep’em coming!

    Yup, It’s comin’ alright.

    We’re at the pinnacle of the repercussions of our flawed society. It’s all coming to a head. Mankind is closing in on critical mass in a hurry.

    Good. I’m not scared. I say hurry up already and get it over with.

    Order out of Chaos

    The New World Order will be a better system.

    I’m not talking about the NWO that people are so scared of where the elite turn the world into a police state. Oh, they’ll try. They’re already doing it, but they will eventually fail.

    No government is more powerful than the will of it’s people. And you can only suppress the human spirit so much and for so long. Revolutions happen because a society MUST be free to thrive, progress, prosper. Freedom is as natural as gravity. The inherent, unalienable, instinctual will to be free is the natural order of the universe and will thus eventually, inevitably, prevail.

    Mankind will be free.

    Globalization is the natural course of human evolution. The more we breed, the more technologically advanced we become, the more interdependent we become, the smaller the world gets.

    We will globalize.

    We will eventually settle on a free and peaceful global system, which will be the REAL New World Order. I doubt anyone alive today will see it, but it will happen.

    “If you see something, say something” which I liken to Nazi Germany propaganda to get citizens to spy on one another and report to the authorities.

    Oy vey, not to mention McCarthyism and his insane assault on communism.

    I think you’re overdoing it here, Gman … your argument portrays the right as fighting for freedom (really?) and the left as “sheeple” … Remember it is most often the sheeple who bring about revolution … and usually against those who oppress through economics. I’m not so sure we’re close to a revolution yet but I am sure we ALL qualify as sheeple to the truly rulers of our society (those who own the government … and, buddy, it ain’t the sheeple.

    It’s the 2%’s driving the car … and no matter how much the right proclaims their fighting for freedom, the guys behind the wheel are taking us wherever they want to go. I’m thinking those who argue for the 2%’s are the true sheeple … much more so than those who oppose them.

      Top of the AM to ya Charlie! 🙂

      When I wrote this, I was very carefull to NOT make it a Liberal/Conservative issue, but rather an issue that both sides should address equally. When coming to a croosroad, you have two decisions, left or right. It was not a political ideological reference. Using left for “oppression” and right for “freedom” seems logical in the sense that freedom is the Right way to go. Hope that clarifies my references and how I put them to use.

      Am I overdoing it? Depends on whether you see the message as intended. Readers should read without their left/right glasses. It’s not intended as a left/right issue.

      Peace!

    Gman, my man!

    Using left for “oppression” and right for “freedom” seems logical in the sense that freedom is the Right way to go.

    The depends on what your definition of “freedom” is …

    • gmanfortruth permalink*
      February 18, 2011 2:55 am

      That would make a good discussion. “Defining Freedom” While I don’t think were to far off on it’s definition, it would be interesting to here the views of others. I hope you understand my article was not political as far left/right goes. Didn’t mean it to as such!

  7. February 18, 2011 12:28 pm

    Okay, you’re trying to be fair … let’s get onto Wisconsin … boy over at SUFA you guys are arguing like the GOP on Obama’s birth certificate (just don’t have the facts at all).

    • gmanfortruth permalink*

      Wisconsin is a mess. That is certainly union busting. I don’t know much about WI’s debt issues, but have read that most states have problems. Ohio is doing the same as Wi. Trying to bust the unions. I was in a union for 9 years, not sure why people seem to think they are a good thing, all they seemed to me was more stupid politics.

      • charlieopera permalink
        February 18, 2011 4:37 pm

        I was also a union member; 10 years and it was as corrupt as the day is long. All forms of bureacracy become corrupt sooner or later (which is a good argument for libertarianism … except … EXCEPT what is it that corrupts them? Money and/or power in the form of money. And where does the money come from? Surely not the “Sheeple” …

        Unions are a necessary evil in a capitalist society. They may down hard swinging now, but that will only add speed to the plow that is digging into a genuine depression. When the money decides to leave the good old US&A and all your righties are left with your flags to wave, you’ll figure it out. It may not happen in my lifetime, but brother, it’s around the corner.

        • gmanfortruth permalink*
          February 18, 2011 4:54 pm

          I pretty much agree. The only thing that maybe I disagree with is it seem you are impling that the desruction of Unions will cause the money to leave the USA (correct me if I’m misreading your comment). If this is your assumption, then you’ve been living in a dream world for awhile. The money has been leaving in droves. Over 40000 factories have closed and moved out of country since 2000. It is a huge reason that private sector unionism is so low, everthing that was union left for lower wage countries so they could compete in the market. Knocking down public sector unions will have no effect on this countries demise. It’s already here, all this crap going on is to keep our attention off of the real problems coming at us. Sadly, I feel we will both see this in our lifetimes. Yes, I have my flag, and food stocks for a year, and guns and ammo and live deep in the country. It’s coming. Now if I can get just a few people to lose the left/right paradigm thinking and realize that it’s just a form of dividing the citizens brainwashing, we can all be better off. WE ARE SCREWED!

          • February 18, 2011 8:46 pm

            I agree unions won’t stop anything, but right now without them, we’re that much closer to the end for those in unions; once they lose their protection, they’re goners. I also agree the end is around the corner but that has more to do with a global economy than anything political. Like I said, I’ll be dead before anything genuine happens, but things will continue to get worse, no matter which party is in power. Ultimately, the money will go where it’s safe and the riots in Egypt will be mirrored everywhere else … except by then it won’t make much of a difference. I suspect those left behind (maybe the 3-9%’ers) will be the ones they find hanging from trees …

            February 18, 2011 8:59 pm

            I agree that some workers will be goners, but for real reasons, like they can’t teach. Ihold the position that people have the right to unionize under free will. Now when you start a job in a union shop, there is no free will at all. What I have learned from being in a union, the union protects the not so good workers, while those who excell are screwed out of moving up the financial ladder because everyone must be treated the same. So, Unions have some good, but they also have some bad. I believe that we are men who can succeed without unions, we don’t need protection. I would prefer not go it on my own than pay some other overpaid union president and his overpaid staff because the claim I need them. I don’t need them, never have and never will. The big Union bosses need us, to maintain their power and money.

            I just returned from stocking up on some non-parishables, 300 bucks worth. We can our own veggies, so that’s an accomplishment. Charlie, I can only say, from all my research, bad things are coming much faster than you seem to realize. I hope you take this warning as a call to action. I have stored enough food to go it alone for over a year. If nothing happens, my future food bills will be very low. Better safe than sorry. Peace my friend!

            Charlie, Off subject request! Would you be willing join me in writing an article about the “definition of freedom”? I think a co-authored look at this would make for a great discussion. We can work via E-mail. If you accept this offer, which site would you like to see it on, this one or SUFA?

    GMan:

    I think you know the way I will turn.

    I don’t think we will gain freedom in our lifetime. It is a muti-generational process and too many don’t understand what freedom is. I’ve never lived it in my lifetime and tyranny is already here. It will just get tighter and tighter while the NWO is being implemented.

    • gmanfortruth permalink*
      February 19, 2011 4:11 am

      Yes, Sir, I know which way you will turn. The beginning, in this country has emerged. Now I wait, as they exhaust their will to fight. Then….:lol:

      • February 19, 2011 9:20 pm

        I don’t know that I know what true freedom is, Gman. I honestly believe (right now–on the spot about it) that each person must determine what that means to them individually … however, the fact some might see a collective for the sake of protection does not negate what they believe to be freedom; so long as they willingly agree to band together (whether in the form of an elected government, social contract, communte, etc.). Let me ponder it a while.

        • gmanfortruth permalink*
          February 19, 2011 9:29 pm

          I happy that your willing to ponder this idea. When I thought about, I immediately saw it as a great challenge. I also would love to see how a four or five paragraph definition of freedom by each of us, one from the left, one from the right, would turn out in terms of closeness or totally opposite. It would be a fun exercise on SUFA, that’s for sure. It would also be fun to put together with our respective definitions and other comments. It would also show that two people with differing political views can work together and accomplish something!

    It can kick off anytime. While there’s always more I could do to be prepped, I can get us by at this point.

    I’m can fort up and deal with it.

    • gmanfortruth permalink*
      February 19, 2011 4:41 am

      Loads faster here! I believe it’s more mental prep than anything else. I’ve been on this for my third year now, as far as food and ammo. Moved to the hills this past summer and doing well! I’m working on an article to share canning and prep ideas, would you like to add anything?

      • February 19, 2011 4:49 am

        Most of my canning stuff is pretty standard, but maybe something on prep might flow from my head – let me give it some thought.

          Send any thoughts via e-mail. It was 55 degrees today, tomorrow 27 degrees, WTF!

          • February 19, 2011 5:02 am

            Will do.

            Upper 40’s here today. 20 out there atm, likely down another 4-5 degrees before morning. Some possibility of snow tonight. Suppose to be 49 tomorrow with rain forecast!

            Gotta love it huh? lol.

            That’s why she’s called MOTHER nature. Can’t make up it’s mind. LOL

  10. February 19, 2011 9:21 pm

    I think the internal apocolypse if still far off, brother. Trust me (at least from what I see around me) … we’re still way too numb from toys to even realize what’s being done to us (and I’m speaking from the left).

  11. February 20, 2011 3:50 am

    GMan

    The definition of FREEDOM is quite simple and long established.

    It is the ability of each person to support it with a sound philosophical foundation, and then live it without contradiction that is lacking.

    Charlie actually presents a good start with his theory that even a govt where everyone agreed to participate. But I bet dollars to donuts that as soon as someone in the group disagrees he resorts back to “majority” rules or “what is best for the group”.

    • gmanfortruth permalink*
      February 20, 2011 3:57 am

      JAC, I’m hoping Charlie takes up my offer. I believe that if we worked as co-authors on the subject would be a great thinking type article for discussion on SUFA. An exercise in the left/right paradigm, if you will. The outcome could be very interesting, as well as a fun discussion. What say you?
