The Blame

Accountability has been lost in America. It seems that one side is pointing fingers at the other – and it is the opposing party that has ruined everything.

Truth is, there is only one party to blame for the undeniably painful future of America:

The American People.

We voted these incipient creatures into office. They proceeded to legislate and violate the rights of The People.

We were told we needed to fight terrorists. The real fear-mongers postulate on C*SPAN, wearing their ill-fitted suits and pushing their ill-fitting laws.

We were told that an amorphous enemy from far away lands is the reason why our phones are tapped, our online activity is monitored, and bottled water is no longer allowed through airport security.

We The People are the ones to blame.

Not the politicians or the terrorists, but US. We allowed our public servants to increase their authority over us, under the guise of keeping us safe and secure.

We sat back idly, keeping our faith in a system that has no faith in our ability to take care of ourselves.

We watch as our currency is continually debased, forcing a vast portion of the populace to seek entitlements and hand-outs, devaluing those who work for their own sustenance.

We clutch onto the false hope that we can spend our way out of our problems, thinking one day we will hit some sort of lottery, and – magically – all will be right again.

We The People became weak.
We The People became misinformed.
We The People became too trusting.

Now, We The People have the duty to blame our own ignorance, and now We must reconcile our past mistakes.

Make certain that we will come to stand in defiance of annihilation and reinforce the foundation that our once Great Nation was built upon one premise:

The government is not an authority.
It is a public servant.
And it serves us what we demand.
