American Sense

When you hear "American Sense" I bet you don't get all warm and fuzzy inside, like you should. Doesn't that piss you off? Well, good. Because you're an idiot. You, me, the lot of us. Every individual in this country has either sold, or let be taken from them the very spark that makes us American. How much sense does that make?

You've sold your morals for security, your privacy for piece of mind, and your religion for dominance. All you've got left is your pride. And you put that up for sale for plain 'ol greed.

How did we get so childish? With the vast history and experiences of this county, how in the hell did we all become brats? Well, somewhere along the way we were all made to believe freedom was easy, and sacrifice was evil. We were lead to hate the one thing our founding fathers gave specifically to us, the people. Our government.

No longer do we think of the government as of the people, by the people, or for the people. We place it in categories with our enemies. Meanwhile, those who stand to gain the most from our "youthful exuberance" take our morals and pretend to give us security; take our privacy and give us false hopes; and take our religions to secure their own dominance.

In do time it shall be "our" government no longer, and truly become "the" government. The only way to stop it is to fight. Ben Franklyn understood this, as did all patriots. From the educated the illiterate, from the plantation owner to the slave. All seeked freedom. Now we sell it on the cheap.

Proud of yourself? Will you be the coward watching from afar, or will you fight? The battles may be many, they may be few, but the Revolution has to be fought. For the sake of our very souls. That is, if we can somehow get our spark back...

They must find it difficult...those who have taken authority as the truth rather than truth as the authority.
