I’m sure some of you will get mad at this post but hopefully the majority of you will agree with it and decide to try to create real change in OUR COUNTRY!
I’ll start off with a Youtube clip that actually could be this entire post and my entire argument.
Everything that was stated in the above video is actually fact. So what makes us “The Greatest nation in the world”? Is it our democracy that is actually ran by the Federal Reserve Bank(nothing federal about it, it’s a corporation)and Corporations. Is it our Military who is actually the only military in history to have used nuclear weapons on another nation(Twice). And who since 9/11 has spent enough money on “The War on Terror” to send everyone who has graduate from high school in that same time frame to college for 4 years. Is it our school systems that doesn’t teach kids how to work for themselves but teach them to work for others? An education system that doesn’t even teach real lessons anymore. We have an education system that teaches kids only what they need to know to pass a standardized test but not what they need to know to grow as intellectuals. A country that lets companies/corporations add what ever additives they want into our food, waters and medications. Although we have a organization that regulates them, they never block anything until people start getting sick and force them to. Is it because we are a country where going to college can have you in debt for the rest of your life or having an unforeseen illness or accident can also have you in debt your entire life and/or force you into bankruptcy. Or is it because we are a country who creates false wars in-order to invade a territory take it over then build a military presence and bleed that territory of it’s goods and minerals or just have that territory be a midway point to our actual target.
Could it be the citizens of this Country that make it the greatest country in the world? Citizens who kill each other over the colors they wear, the way they have their hat turned, because of the clothes they wear(hoodies or saggin pants), because of the music they listen to, because they decide to text during a movie that you spent your $12 to see. Sure there are people killed in other countries but in the ones they always show on “THE NEWS” that are suppose to make everyone but Americans seem like savages, those people are killing to Eat, to Practice their own beliefs, to not be suppressed and oppressed, to let their voices be heard in an unjust regime. Hmmm, those sound like the things we used to fight for in this country. Now we kill people for knocking on our door asking for help because their car broke down.
Maybe we are the greatest country because of the citizens who fight for the rights of animals but could care less about there neighbors. Or maybe because of the citizens who make themselves “feel” better by donating to foreign countries after feeling guilty watching those commercials but will walk past and ignore 5 homeless people on their way into work. Or is it because citizens who can’t get along long enough to realize they have the power to stop things like Net Neutrality and companies like Capital One from saying they can Show up to Cardholders homes and work place to collect a debt, which only opens it up to small(should be illegal) debt collection companies to do the same thing.
I know what makes America the greatest country in the world. It’s the fact that we all blindly allow the government to get a percentage of the money we worked hard for. I’m still waiting for someone to explain paying Taxes to me… I understand taxes on goods but why are you taxing my pay and why if I get a bonus for the good job I’ve done you tax that and at a higher percentage. Hell, in Georgia, when you buy a car you pay taxes for buying it then if you turn around and sale that same car you have to pay taxes for money made from your sell. Hmmmm, that makes no sense to me but hey that’s what makes us the Greatest country in the world we blindly do what ever our government tells us to do.
I can go on and on with this subject, however I’ve already written twice as much as I normally do so I ask you this . Please AMERICA(NS), explain to me why America is the greatest country in the world? And please don’t say because of our freedom; in America they still tell us what we can and can’t do, which I understand is to keep order; however, when you do things that are “supposedly” okay, you will get in trouble if they don’t like the way you did them, who you are ,or the results you got.
Okay seriously I’m done . So, please, help me understand what makes America The Greatest Country in the World? I know what it use to be but it seems we have lost our way.
