Anthony on What is Wrong with America

Anthony wrote this and wanted me to share it with all of you. Please read in conjunction with the Ron Paul e-mail.

We all know deep inside ourselves that black times are coming. The ancient senses we have dulled are piercing through no matter how we try and block them with new wonder drugs (or old standards).

We know something is wrong when our currency is being dumped worldwide and our media tells us it's good.

We know it's not right that we are paying mercenaries ten times what we pay our own soldiers to murder innocent families.

We know we will be lied into another war and that the so called opposition party will vote to approve any unprovoked aggression they are told to.

We know that it be can't be good to have our media owned by the same companies that profit billions with each new war.

We know it can't be good that we have lost habeus corpus, or our fourth amendment protections.

We know globalism is good for billionaires in Dubai, but if it's so great for us, why are we about to experience a recession and probable inflation spurred on by a devalued dollar?

We know something is wrong when these Dubai Sheiks are building a structure 3 times the size of our biggest skyscrapers, yet the last one we built was the Sears Tower in 1976.

We know something is wrong when 750,000 Americans have been put on terror lists, many for doing nothing more than attending peace marches.

We know something is wrong when college students are tasered just for asking questions a politician doesn't like.

We know something is wrong when police tell us a woman strangled herself to death with her handcuffs while in custody.

We all know something is wrong when one in 75 children are autistic and 30 years ago it was one in 30,000.
We know something is wrong. I wish I was wrong......

Actually, it was 1 in 20,000 just 20 years ago. Now the latest numbers are 1 in 150. I keep up with these things because 2 of my 4 kids are autistic.

No, you're not wrong - I heard few weeks ago the US dollar is worth 65 or 75 Canadian cent. It was the other way around from what I remember. The dark times are here and will get darker. However, looking from outside in, I'm living in Korea at the moment - I just feel so bad for the Americans who have to live under such tyranny.
