America, The Pathetic
America’s song “America The Beautiful” has been erased. It has been replaced by “America The Pathetic”.
Americans are a pathetic bunch. We bicker and yell at each other across real and imagined divides. All the while we accept and elevate the most unworthy among us and empower them to rule over us.
Americans argue among themselves. We ally with others to battle forces that could rescue us. We reinterpret the Constitution, laws, rules of civility, and ethics that allowed America to build itself into America, the most important and successful experiment in history.
Americans, some openly, some privately, demand of a higher power that He remedy the darkness that for decades they allowed to be imposed upon them.
Americans have become unworthy, self-involved, lazy. Americans are confused, lost, groping for an easy fix. Americans plead to their favorite special force or God to effect release from their self-imposed dungeon. They promise that, since they follow His directives, He should effect their release.
In typical American lazy fashion, after having permitted a poisonous being to usurp their liberty, they now plead to another Being to mystically release them from a dungeon that they herded themselves into.
Americans do not deserve anyone’s sympathy. We allowed this poison to infest our paradise. Now our paradise is being transformed into a prison. Will none of us stave off this poison? Will we continue to allow this poison to divide us leading us to further decay?
Will Americans permit a potential restorative leader to come forth? Is there a restorative leader willing to sacrifice enough to evoke Americans’ innate love of liberty? Or will we further permit the poison to divide us?
Americans do not deserve their own sympathy, however, we will provide it to ourselves. While wallowing in self-pity we pretend to have faith that our America will somehow mystically rejuvenate itself while we pretend to have faith in some higher power.
Americans, continue to bicker among yourselves while praying that some high power delivers you from your passively accepting self-imposed dungeon. This is the road to the lowest, most painful, and least productive place. It is the road to serfdom.
Americans are receiving that which they deserve. We have proven ourselves unworthy of the liberty and freedoms passed willingly from the Founding Fathers and the many who sacrificed their ALL so that Americans forever might be free to achieve their most. Today’s Americans have failed.
