I was visiting a facebook discussion today that was going round and round on whether government was the problem or corporations were the problem. This was like playing with "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" At first and at last, after reading all of the arguments, I decided it was government that was the root of the problem. I'm holding to that for the following reasoning; It is our government that has led us down the path to "Public Private Partnerships." It is our government officials who broke the bank, created deficit spending, ignored the Constitution, and pretty much blew it up in our faces. It is our government officials who made the rules against the Constitution and they have betrayed America and the trust of all Americans. It is our government officials who, over time, took our money and ran with it to some ungodly place that we now find ourselves placed. We've been deceived and we have elected so many of the wrong people to lead the country. I pray that our next elections bring us real Americans to lead us out of the wilderness.
With all of that being said, I coincidentally came across a video this evening that pretty much explains what happened, how, and why. It is actually two videos, but not terribly long. I hope you'll take a few minutes to watch them. One thing I have noted as I have gone along in this process is that people who have witnessed this transition and really care about America are the ones who are speaking out to warn the rest of us. If we don't listen and figure out how to fight back, we will lose forever the Republic that our founders gave us.
The wonderful woman who did these videos evidently died last year. I only discovered that reading the comments on the video page at youtube. She left a legacy for us to carry forward. Her name is Joan Veon. Her website still lives HERE There is an obituary on that site, but also much more information that she left for us.
