The New America should scare you
Louisville, KY – The New America should scare you. While we have been inundated with the silliness they call the sequester and been told the world would essentially end accordingly if the government has to *gasp* cut 2.2% of their future budget, we have more to worry about than anyone wants to admit or think about.
Americans are becoming poorer overall which leads to serious consequences such as violent crime, and yes starvation of its citizens. Miraculously the government that continues acting like they will take care of us all has not been held accountable to just how they will accomplish that feat.
Over 50% of all Americans are on some sort of government assistance meaning that less than half of working Americans are paying for all of us. As if that isn’t startling enough thanks to government mandates such as Obamacare, the situation will get much worse.
With many employers opting to convert to a part-time workforce, paychecks will get smaller and workers will pay more from their pockets for healthcare, not to mention higher food prices, fuel costs, and the list goes on and on.
Gone are the days when we had more pride than to rely on a government so-called handout that was really coming from our neighbors and friends pockets.
The real surprise is that no one is paying attention to what is going on.
The orchestrated takeover of freedom and liberty in America.
Typically crime goes up when people get hungry. Crime is rising in our suburban areas because people simply can’t afford to eat, or provide for themselves. Gangs have taken over.
There are approximately 1.4 million gang members living in America today according to the FBI. That number has shot up by a whopping 40 percent just since 2009.
Approximately 80 percent of all murders and shootings in the city of Chicago are gang-related. A breakdown of the Chicago killing fields shows that 83% of those murdered in Chicago last year had criminal records. In Philly, it’s 75%. In Milwaukee it’s 77% percent. In New Orleans, it’s 64%. In Baltimore, it’s 91%. Many were felons who had served time. And as many as 80% of the homicides were gang related.
So what is the government response?
Take more of our money and take control of our citizenry. Make us poorer and hungrier.
Taxes went up in January leaving less income for the families that are working and yet the government leaders continue to spend, spend, spend like there is no tomorrow. More importantly they are assuming more control of our lives all in the interest of safety because they know what is best for us.
Think about the second amendment for a moment. The second amendment was designed to allow we the citizens to protect ourselves against a tyrannical government, yet when faced with possible repercussions of their actions, what does the Obama administration do?
They go for the guns. When faced with an uphill battle against them on this issue they do the next best thing.
Buy up all the ammo. Think I am lying? Call around or do an internet search seeking .40 cal and 9mm ammo. You won’t find any. If you do it is priced so outrageously you can’t afford to buy it anyway.
With crime setting record levels and many neighborhoods under siege this administration is ensuring we can’t even protect ourselves, all the while cities are slashing budgets and eliminating police officers so they can’t protect you either.
Need an example?
East Oakland’s Arcadia Park, where law and order have broken down to such an extent that residents have been left with no other choice but to band together to police their own streets. “You have to walk around in your house with a gun to feel safe here,” said Alaska Tarvins of the Arcadia Park Board of Directors. It’s gotten so bad in some parts of the country, that there are areas of major cities where police refuse to go.
Yet it is becoming increasingly more difficult to even arm your self in your own home.
With anti-gun politicians at all levels of government now attempting to disarm Americans and restrict their access to personal defense weapons, and police departments running so thin that they can no longer respond in any reasonable amount of time, criminals will only be more empowered to target law-abiding Americans who are left with no means to defend themselves.
The city of Chicago, in an effort to save money and deploy officers to more critical areas, has literally stopped taking 9-1-1 calls for crime reports such as armed robberies, car thefts, and burglaries.
More importantly remember that when you need police in seconds they are minutes away.
It was so bad in Chicago in 2010 that Illinois state Reps., and Chicago Democrats, John Fritchey and LaShawn Ford called for the governor, Chicago mayor Daley and Superintendent Jody Weis to use the National Guard in response to crime in the city.
Military troops on American streets.
Detroit followed their lead in 2012. In Detroit, things have gotten so bad that even the Detroit police are telling people to “enter Detroit at your own risk”.
In a further slap to the average intelligence of Americans the Department of Homeland Security essentially appears to have an open checkbook in an effort to control us even further.
The DHS has purchased over 2700 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles (MRAP) to be used on American streets. At their whim. Do we need to ask what would be the catalyst for using these? How many reports do we have of an overreaching TSA for example?
Even worse the MRAP’s are being used already and have been since 2007 right here in America. In October Time ran this story on MRAP’s. The so-called sequester involves $85 billion. Do we really need to buy more MRAP’s that are going to be used against Americans?
When did America become a police state?
As we get poorer and get more hungry the societal problems we face will only worsen. And this will lead us even further down the slippery slope of once was an unheard of police state in America.
I remember a time when we could not imagine such a road. The thought of such atrocities were unfathomable. The images of this behavior in countries around the world riled Americans up and everyone cried “this would never happen here.”
Yet here we are and miraculously it has happened, and will continue to happen, yet no one seems to care.
It is time to wake up America before freedom is completely gone…..
