The American Dream
Saturday, September 10, 2011
Every single day, America is becoming a little bit more divided. It is probably not a stretch to say that there could be more political hatred in this country today than at any time since the Civil War. In fact, there are some very disturbing signs that the very heated war of words between the two major political parties could soon spill over into very real violence in the streets.
Instead of uniting and focusing on our real enemies and on our real problems, the left and the right in America seem ready to go to war with each other. The mainstream media and those that control both political parties love to play “divide and conquer”, and in America today we are taught to pick one political “team” and to absolutely hate those on the other side. But instead of two real choices, what we really have is a false left/right paradigm. The reality is that the two political parties are controlled by the same people at the highest levels. For example, did you know that 3 of the top 7 donors to Barack Obama’s campaign in 2008 were major Wall Street banks? Both the Republicans and the Democrats are very tightly controlled. That is why nothing seems to really change no matter who we elect. But rather than waking up and uniting to take on our real problems, the American people are increasingly choosing to hate one another.
What I am not saying is that any of us should just give up and agree with those that express views that we are 100% opposed to. I am not saying that at all.
But what I am saying is that we can fundamentally disagree with others and yet still love them at the same time.
Right now, political hatred is rising to very frightening levels in America. Just cruise around political websites on the Internet for a while. What you will find will not be pleasant.
Just think about how Democrats and Republicans talk about each other at this point.
How would you describe the emotions that most Republicans feel for most Democrats?
How would you describe the emotions that most Democrats feel for most Republicans?
The sad thing is that the vast majority of the people representing us in Washington D.C. should never receive a single vote from any American voter under any circumstances. We spend so much time defending them when the truth is that nearly all of them should be voted out.
But instead of waking up and understanding what the real issues are, most Americans are rallying around their political “teams” and are seething with hatred for their “enemies”.
Look, without love this country is not going to survive. Yes, we need to vote most of the politicians in Washington D.C. out of office. But that does not mean that we need to obsessively hate them.
The following are just a few recent examples of the rising political hatred that we are seeing in this country….
*A new online video game called “Tea Party Zombies Must Die” allows players to savagely murder notable Republicans such as Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and Glenn Beck using a variety of weapons.
*Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa says that he is ready for “war” with the Tea Party….
“We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: the war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They’ve got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner.”
He also added this during his recent speech….
“President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of a bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong”
Does he really want to “take out” those that belong to the Tea Party?
*Of course Republicans have been guilty of similar language. The following is something that Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle said a while back….
“I hope that’s not where we’re going, but you know if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies and saying my goodness what can we do to turn this country around? I’ll tell you the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out.”
*For some members of Congress, apparently killing members of the opposite political party would not be going far enough. Just consider what Maxine Waters recently had to say….
“As far as I’m concerned, the Tea Party can go straight to hell”
*This kind of heated rhetoric from our “leaders” is increasingly inspiring average Americans to do some really stupid things. For example, 6 security guards were actually held hostage for several hours by disgruntled union workers….
Hundreds of Longshoremen stormed the Port of Longview early Thursday, overpowered and held security guards, damaged railroad cars, and dumped grain that is the center of a labor dispute, said Longview Police Chief Jim Duscha.
We are creating an environment of hatred and violence in this country. The sad thing is that it accomplishes next to nothing.
Just look at what is happening in Washington D.C. right now. The policies of the Obama administration are extremely similar to the policies of the Bush administration.
Hopefully more Americans will start to realize that both Bush and Obama are playing for the same side. We all need to wake up and stop hating each other because of what race, religion or political party we may belong to.
The majority of people in this nation claim to be Christians, and yet the vast majority of us seem to have forgotten the basic commandment that we are to “love one another”.
Yes, as I have written about so frequently, this country is headed for absolute disaster. But if we allow this hatred for one another to keep growing, we are never even going to have a chance to turn this thing around.
Yes, you should never compromise what you believe just to be accepted by someone else.
Yes, you should never vote for anyone that is promoting policies that are destroying this country.
However, just because you disagree with someone does not mean that you should hate them.
We should love all of the politicians in Washington D.C., we should forgive all of the politicians in Washington D.C. and we should pray for all of the politicians in Washington D.C.
And yes, we should vote almost every single one of them out of office.
Right now, we are letting the establishment divide us. We are letting them sow the seeds of hatred and anger.
But we should not be letting this happen. The truth is that we are all Americans. We were all created equal and no group of people should be hated.
If the hate in this country continues to grow, we are going to see even more chaos on the streets of America. Things are getting very frightening out there. Right now, the very fabric of American society is being shredded and the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is breaking down.
How in the world are we all going to live together if we cannot get along?
Instead of fighting with each other, we should be uniting and bringing awareness to such issues as the corruption of the Federal Reserve, the nightmarish police state that this country is turning into, and the disregard that our leaders have for the U.S. Constitution.
America could be so much more than it is today.
But instead, most of us have allowed ourselves to be trained to hate others based on what political party they belong to, what religion they belong to, what they look like or because of how much money they have.
If we stay on the road that we are on, mark my words, this country is going to descend into absolute chaos.
United we stand, divided we fall.
It is your choice America.
