Where Is America’s Soul?

There is a shit storm in the making right now.  Americans everywhere are waking up, taking stock, and finding common ground. Some are dazed and confused at what they see around them.  Some have given up hope.  Others are preparing for a fight.

Washington itself is on the verge of their own kind of war.  After Obama decided to release former presidential papers from dubya, Republicans threw a fit and threatened to go nuclear if Obama releases more torture memos. Threatening to derail any nominations made in the future.  So Obama withdrew the release of those papers, end of story.

At the same time, we have Obama outside this country putting her down to other nations.  When has an acting President ever done such a thing to the people he represents?  Has Obama gone mad?  Is he trying to curry the favor of other nations to the point where these united States means nothing to him?  Obama said:

The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans. Many other Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim-majority country,I know, because I am one of them. In his speech, broadcast live on al-Jazeera and al-Arabiyia, two of the biggest Arabic satellite TV channels, he said Islam “has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country“.

What have Muslim’s done for these united States besides bring terrorism to our shores?  It was Muslims who bombed the World Trade Center.  Muslims seem to routinely decapitate their wives.  Women have no freedom in the Muslim world.  I am sure that not all Muslims are this extreme, yet time and again we are shown a different hand.

Then Obama went to France.  Remember WWII?  Remember the shores of Normandy?  American blood was spilled on those shores to free France from Nazi Germany.  Obama had this to say though:

Obama has declared that America has “failed to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world” and has “shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” towards its allies.

His speech in Strasbourg went further than any United States president in history in criticizing his own country’s action while standing on foreign soil.

Obama seems to not know what the American Soul is all about.  He seems to be going to his roots and disavowing his oath to We the People and the country that gave him the honor of representing her!  Betrayer!

dubya was worse, but not by much!  From CommonDreams.org we have this video: To read the book, click HERE:

The Red Cross issued this report as written by Mark Danner.  To say it is disturbing is a gross understatement.  Read the report HERE:

What has happened to America’s soul?  How can it be that an American President can go off soil and them put his country down?  The country that honored him by allowing him to guide her?  Where people still swoon just at the mere mention of his name?  I cannot fathom what has happened.  Have we become so decadent that we have lost all National Spirit?  That we no longer feel outrage when someone who represents us betrays us?  What is wrong with Americans?

How is it that doctors can participate in the torture of prisoners who have not yet been tried or convicted of a crime?  How is it that they can be a party to torture at all?  Were they saving these men only so that the men could endure more torture?

Obama said he would end the practice of rendition.  So how come he has decided to continue that practice?

Barack Obama to allow anti-terror rendition to continue

The highly controversial anti-terror practice of rendition will continue under Barack Obama, it has emerged.

Despite ordering the closure of Guantanamo and an end to harsh interrogation techniques, the new president has failed to call an end to secret abductions and questioning.

In his first few days in office, Mr Obama was lauded for rejecting policies of the George W Bush era, but it has emerged the CIA still has the authority to carry out renditions in which suspects are picked up and often sent to a third country for questioning.

Where is your soul America?  When will enough be enough?  How long will you allow the lies and deceits to continue?  Will the war have to hit our shores before you stand up and say, “ENOUGH!”  Are Americans so beaten down that these outrages will be allowed to continue?  Where Congress and Obama are allowed to legislate your freedoms away and turn this Republic into a Socialist State?

Paramilitary groups such as Blackwater are allowed to flourish on American Soil.  Blackwater employs the dregs of the world, rapists, murderers, the worst of the worst, and pays them exceptionally well.  Law enforcement agencies are using Blackwater facilities to train their officers.  But for what?  To have those skills turned on American citizens?

American women serving their country are subjected to rape by officers who should be protecting them and fellow soldiers.  But the army does nothing, refusing to even really investigate these charges.  Where is the American outrage?  And KBR, a contractor for the military, well they just can’t help themselves apparently.  Still the military does NOTHING.  Where is America’s spirit?

With the engineered collapse of the financial markets by the money men, Americans ignore the tent cities that are growing up around them from the homeless and hopeless Americans who were devastated by the ruthless raping of the financial markets.

BRUSSELS/AMSTERDAM – Fortis expects a complete collapse of the US financial markets within a few days to weeks. That explains, according to Fortis, the series of interventions of last Thursday to retrieve 8 billion. We have been saved just in time. The situation in the US is much worse than we thought, says Fortis chairman Maurice Lippens. Fortis expects bankruptcies amongst 6000 American banks which have a small coverage currently. But also Citigroup, General Motors, there is starting a complete meltdown in the US.

Where is  your soul America?  How have you become so humbled?  What happened to American values, American know-how, American hard work, American Pride?  How have you let thieves and deceivers become your leaders?  How did you allow yourself to be so betrayed?

Stand up America!  Hold the hands of your neighbors and unite.  Know that your strength lies not in the leaders but within yourselves.  Bring forth your spirit, hold strong to your families, friends, neighbors, neighborhoods, cities and towns.  I know it is hard, we’ve been beaten down and betrayed so often as of late.  But are we not Americans?  Throw off tyranny and oppression.  Remember who you are!

We’ve done it before, gone back to the basics, triumphed over adversity.  Americans are always first to help the rest of the world, how about helping yourselves?  Reach out to other Americans and form a united front to the despots in Washington and the special interest groups.  Demand an accounting from your Representatives.  Let the message ring clear, UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION OR FACE THE CONSEQUENCES! Tax day is coming.  Do you plan to join your local Tea Party?  A strong message needs to be sent to Washington.  One that says we’re angry and not going to take it anymore.  This is your only warning!

We are Americans!  Our blood has been spilled around the world for the freedom of others.  It is time to bring freedom back home to America!  Time to give Congress a swift kick in the ass.  Time to tell Obama that Americans do not require someone to apologize for them or put them down.  Time to make those in Washington LISTEN instead of ignore us.  Time to tell corporations like Monsanto to leave our food supply alone!  Across this nation we need to unite, not be divided.

Time to bring our soldiers home to American soil.  Time to give them the hero’s welcome they deserve after so long abroad.  Time to honor our nation and protect it from those who mean her harm.

United States of America

The Star Spangled Banner

Oh, say! can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
Oh, say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In fully glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution!
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Barbara Ehrenreich:      No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.
