Wide Asleep In America Today

Written by Dennis Mumma

This is what is wrong with America. If you don’t vote for Donald Trump, all I said will have no meaning. Drive around America and take a good look. People living in $200,000 homes, 3 cars in the drive way, a pool in the back yard, motor home parked in the side yard, 50 inch LCD in every room, everyone has a $600 iPhone, X-Box on every TV, side by side refer full of food, all walking around in $200 sneakers, having parties to decide where to take their next holiday, buying every new gadget that comes on the market, both mom and dad working while someone else raises their kids, then wonder why they have brats for kids, most never read the constitution or the bill of rights, could not even tell you who they lived next door to for the past 15 years, put their parents in a home when they need the most help. They don’t think there is a problem. Most never leave their state, and 99% have never been out of the country to see what is really going on. So as long as they are fat dumb and happy, they think the world is fine. But wait until Obama drops the thugs in their back yard, and they start killing their family members, eating their pets, murdering their loved ones, then just maybe they will wake up. But most liberals are so stupid they still won’t get it.

They have made you into consumerist. Only interested in the newest toy, or vacation, or promotion. Little time to care or even want to care about what’s happening to our country. You have been lulled to sleep by biased news and 30 second sound bites. No one follows politics until it’s too late and the damage is done. The question now, is it too late? You have been psychologically conditioned. The obfuscation of our country was won without a war. While you were sleeping they quietly came in.

Has America become the land of the special interest and home of the double standard?

Let’s see: if we lie to the Congress, it’s a felony and if the congress lies to us it’s just politics; if we dislike a black person, we’re racist and if a black dislikes whites, it’s their 1st Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it’s wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don’t burn books in America, we now rewrite them; we got rid of the communist and socialist threat by renaming them progressives; we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest against President Obama’s policies you’re a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Amendment right.

You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called sick people; we can us a human fetus for medical research, but it’s wrong to use an animal.

We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to those who don’t want to work; we all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology; we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games; the land of opportunity is now the land of handouts; the similarity between hurricane Katrina and the gulf oil spill is neither president did anything to help.

And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who’s at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign.

What has happened to the land of the free and home of the brave?
