What do you get when you put together a man with a microphone who supports Ron Paul and protesters who really do not know what they are protesting against: You get this video, which by the way either will make you laugh, cry, or vomit. While I would agree that Ron Paul may be better than what we have now, that is not the argument for this blog. The video, done by a gentlemen named Adam Kokesh, went around D.C. asking those who were sitting in for the “Occupy Washington” rally what they thought about the economy, the wars, and government control of certain aspects of our lives. What I find the most amusing, even if it does give me pause about the future of this nation, is that most of these individuals are college kids just wanting a free ride.
All they want the government to do is give them something for free, in the name of social justice.
We have heard this phrase before and it is one we must not forget, because it is one that will be used in the ideological battle for the future of this nation. No matter if these young college kids realize it or not, they are advocating the government taking an even bigger role in our lives. They have a lot to complain about but never seem to mention the role government plays in all areas that they complain about. is it not funny, then, when the gentlemen asking the questions points out the government control inside these programs, the students stop on a dime and try to make their statements sound more, may I say, socialistic?
The point that all of these individuals are trying to make, and it is one we have heard many times, is that the government should take a bigger role in our lives and help us when we are down and out. Also, they should help us when we feel like doing nothing, when we do not feel like paying out bills, and when we feel like wasting our lives protesting for an ideal that, realistically, will never make the country better. Those who do well for themselves do it because they have big ideas of their own. Did Bill Gates become rich because he went around to poor people and stole out of their Christmas fund? No, he did not! He got rich because he an idea and he put that idea to work for him. Others in this world wanted the product that he offered, so he raised the price on the products and the people still bought them. If you told these kids that they were supporting these individuals with a lot of money when they bough their smart phones and their computers, they would find a way to beat around the bush, but the fact of the matter is a protest is no good unless you understand the idea you are fighting for. These kids (and I use the terms “kids” for a reason, mind you) want things a certain way, and unless they get it they believe sitting in the rain will help them get it. Unfortunately for them, the majority of people in this country do not agree with their insane view of the world. read more »
You've probably received some e-mails where the subject
line reads "must see video". This isn't one of those videos.
This one is in a class by itself. This video is "must see again
and again video". Repetitive viewing is necessary so that
we'll stop forgetting what the rest of the world hasn't;
America is an exceptional nation.
Dennis Prager is not just a smart man, he is a wise man.
You can hear his radio show at dennisprager.com. His
controlled passion only serves to support the believability
of his concern for America's future. A future even the most
apathetic among us are beginning to doubt.
And yes, in case you're wondering, that's Sarah Palin sitting
next to him. So you Palin haters, be you Republican, Democrat,
Independent, or an average media-brainwashed slug, for once
do exactly what Palin is doing and LISTEN !!!
If your hatred of Palin totally short-circuits your brain to the
point of apoplexy, please just listen to the audio. What
Prager is saying should not be missed. Just this once,
try not to make political assumptions based on your virulent,
This clip encapsulates the root cause of most of
America's current challenges. America has survived wars,
civil wars, and natural disasters, but it cannot survive for
much longer with an irresponsible, self-centered, entertainment-
driven electorate, and the pathetic politicians they blindly
encourage and support.
The Leftist Media Spin Machine may tell you, there is no such
thing as TRUTH, but if you played the above video, you just
heard a ton of it. Problem is, how would any nation chin-deep
in "reality shows", and secular relativism even recognize the
The reality of the situation is that there are now only two
types of Americans. No, it's not Republicans and Democrats.
It's not even rich and poor. It has nothing to do with what
we are, but rather, who we are.
In America today the political battles and campaigns are
between the "mature" and the "immature".
Sadly, the race at this point is too close to call !!!
