Why are Americans so Scared of Everything?

fears-2350

I have often wondered why Americans seem so fearful. So easily “fear-mongered.”.

I read and speak to folks in America and I watch the media sensationalize everything into an unhealthy fear of the unknown. I say unknown because it is obvious that these folks have no experience outside of America. I’m not counting that two week vacay to Aruba.

I travel quite frequently to places like Cambodia, Egypt, Turkey. I work in places like Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kuwait, etc. Any time I discuss these places with my mother, I’m assailed with information and emails about how “dangerous” each place is. Many (most?) Americans seem to be of the same mind. To them, every place outside of America is fraught with danger. They seem to believe that one should just stay home…where it’s “safe.”

Having traveled widely in the world, I can say that none of these places are as dangerous as, it seems, the average American believes. I want to say grow a pair but having thought about the issue, I realize that it’s more ignorance of the world and inexperience than courage or lackthereof. Americans seem to be in their own little world. They also seem to be uninterested in the world about them. Only when something violent occurs in a country or upon news of some crisis do Americans learn of the wider world. Usually, the knowledge comes to them from the American Media.

This seems to produce in Americans some fear of the world and a hatred and distrust of the peoples therein. I can tell you from experience. The world is not as bad as Fox, CNN and MSNBC make it seem. The only way to learn this is to do one’s own research and to travel the world and meet its inhabitants first hand.

However, Americans historically have no interest in travel outside of America. I suppose this means that Americans will always be easily led by special interest parties who can lie to them and fearmonger Americans into hating, distrusting and cursing the peoples outside of America’s borders.

This is a shame for the world is a better place when America has courage.

Random Thoughts on the Destruction of American Liberty

deathofam

The DNC and GOP are evil.

Neither are good for the country.

Both are good for their respective Lobbyists and Special Interests.

Both target key demographics and lie to them to get elected.

Unions represent the interests of their respective organizations. Police Unions represent the interests of Police. They lobby for legislation that will benefit the Police. Laws such as COPS and 1033, qualified immunity, confiscation, etc.

The Wars on Poverty, Crime and Drugs were initiated by Democrats. All of these so-called wars benefit the Police, empower the police and destroy the rights of the Citizens.

The War on Terror was initiated by Republican Bush 2. However, Obama has taken that war and run with it. He’s made it his own. The NDAA, NSA spying, police militarization, assassination, rendition, invasions and occupations…all of these things were started by someone other than Obama, the Democrat. Yet, Obama has taken them and injected elephant steroids into these programs and gone about the business of destroying the Constitution.

Any Political Party that centers on the corruption that are American cities is bound to be corrupt.

Police have, historically, been Democratic run organizations. Not Republican.

Military members joining the police forces enmasse is a recent phenomenon. This is happening recently as a result of the terrible economy and programs put in place by respective Clinton, Bush 2 and Obama DOJs.

Our current volunteer military is only 30 years old. Prior to the “All Volunteer” military, our nations military services were made up of careerists who retired after they left service and draftees who were mostly poor. These draftees left the service and went into all career fields and some into none as most were from the poor or lower middle class.

This preposterous idea that the Police forces in the military are made up of mostly ex-military is patently false. I looked it up and it can’t be proven or disproven because no one (not even the DOJ) keeps statistics.

I have been researching American police forces for some time now because of Obama’s continuation of Bush’s War on Liberty. Police come from predominantly working class familes. They enter the police force between the ages of 21 and 24. That does not give the majority of them time to enter the Military, ETS and then join the police as a goodly majority of Police have at least 2 years of college. This is a prerequisite for some, if not most, Police forces.

Police Brutality, of late, is a direct result of the Bush/Obama war on Liberty and the Constitution.

Both the Military and the Police are tools of the State.

Police forces have been given qualified immunity. This means that they are not accountable to the citizenry and not held to the same law as the rest of the citizenry. They are, in fact, above the law. Bush and Obama have brought this about via legislation, “Wars on…,” and court appointments.

This must change or America will no longer be a free nation but, instead, little better than Maoist China.

The Democrats are no better than the Republicans. They are the same. This is an age old tactic. Divide and conquer.

By choosing D or R, you are defeating yourselves and destroying America.
