Sweet land of Slavery

Posted: 03/04/2011 in Uncategorized

My the world has been rather interesting as of late. The situation(s) in Egypt and other countries are a bit unnerving to me. It appears the people there want to ditch the dictatorship for a democracy. I sure hope they aren’t looking at ours for any kind of example.
*Caution: A semi-paranoid, anti-government rant is about to begin*
The Tea Party movement has been catching a lot of steam lately. They seem to stir up some kind of sleeping emotions in people, as if we have been asleep at the wheel while our government has been cruising along ruining our country. I think they are just taking advantage of overall unhappiness with the way things are going. Funny thing though, the Tea Party members are of the same ilk than the same people they claim to be so different from. Democrats, Republicans, Tea Party members, whatever label you want to slap on them, its more lies and deceit being crammed down our throats. Its been happening for a long time. LONG time. This country was founded on lies being crammed down our throats.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. – Thomas Jefferson

LOLOLOL!!! This from a SLAVE OWNER!! We are all created equal huh? Good one. Notice how its really hard to come across the word “Slave” or “Slavery” or “Slave Owner” or anything else “slave” related in the U.S. Constitution, yet our founding fathers had slaves, and our country was built on their backs. It was never their intention that all men were created equal, they meant all white men were created equal.
From the first moment our country was born, the government was full of slave owners, and not much has changed. Yes, we aren’t chained up, we may be “free”, but don’t kid yourselves. We are slaves none the less. Go and try to be a politician… its not that easy. You will need money, and lots of it. You cant win a seat on your local school board without shoveling out thousands of dollars to get a chance at getting there. To get elected to anything meaningful, it takes millions. They like it that way, they keep it that way. Money equals power. Money only equals power as long as the few have the money. Thats what makes them powerful, and they know that. Our founding fathers knew that. Our founding fathers intentionally left the slavery issue out of our constitution. They left a lot of things out of it. The Constitution as a vague document ensures that those with the power can keep the power by interpreting the laws to suit their own needs. It’s vague by design. Our founding fathers were racist, not stupid.
Just about every culture has had slaves. It’s just that here in our young America, they were predominantly African American. On top of that, they were treated more poorly than slaves in other civilizations. Slaves in Latin America were allowed to marry. Not Here. Anyways, our founding fathers left slavery out of the constitution not because they were hiding something, but because they never thought slavery would end!! They assumed (I am assuming) that in the year 2011, white people would still be owning slaves. They would be disappointed to know that now, only the government owns them.
Thats what makes me laugh when people talk about how this country’s government isn’t what our founding fathers intended it to be. As if our government has gone astray from the ideals this country was built on. I would argue, its pretty damn close. In fact, our government has actually done a superb job of adapting to the changes in this country!!!!!!! Our government has found a way to survive and thrive in a country where all the people believe they are free. They still have all the money, still have immunities from persecution the average citizen doesn’t (Congressman Charlie Rangel D-NY cones to mind), still have the power to control who gets to run for election, who gets to be on the ticket, thus insuring their continued reign of power. The slave owners have endured the test of time. Just as this culture looks nothing like the culture that created this country….. this culture’s slaves look nothing like the slaves of old either. Todays slaves pay their master through illegal taxes. Todays slaves are allowed a piece of land, unless their Master needs a highway built. The slaves today “vote” for all the Master’s kind. No? Whens the last time a Ironworker made it to the Senate? How many Represent are ex-Janitors? ZERO.
And this is the government model we shove onto other countries. We look at our constitution and see the words “God” and “free” tossed around and we all line up to march to the Pied Piper – Blind to our destination. We are deaf to the sound of reason, hearing only the sweet melody of the Pied Pipers music, we believe what we are taught as children: The lies in the textbooks, the lies from our government, the lies in our Constitution. The lies this country was built upon.
