Assimilation Into Degradation

Well, once again the political machine has shown just how much it's about politics rather than the people! Our elected representatives have taken a wrong turn onto the road of degradation and the costs to run on this road are our constitutional freedoms and rights. We either assimilate into the Empire's path of degradation or face ostracization.

It doesn't take very long once on the road of degradation for the people to discover this route is similar to a turnpike. The toll for this turnpike of degradation is habeas corpus and an E-ZPass can be purchased for the cost of the Bill of Rights. What have we witnessed since Bush uttered this ultimatum?
"Over time it's going to be important for nations to know they will be held accountable for inactivity," he said. "You're either with us or against us in the fight against terror."

This was the turning point! This was when we allowed the Empire to steer us onto the road of degradation. In my opinion, the people have been forced to either assimilate or suffer the wrath of cultural and character assasination. This cultrual hegemony is killing the spirit of freedom itself. It is a cancer that devours all forms of dissent if allowed to grow. The degradation sneaks up ever so slowly while the people ignore the signs. We allow ourselves to be lulled by their songs into this new order. I can think of no better illustration of this than the infamous words of Sagacious Sachem:

I'm an Indian alright but here in The Nations they call us the civilized tribes. They call us civilized because we are easy to sneak up on. White men have been sneaking up on us for years. They sneaked up on us and they told us we wouldn't be happy. They told us we would be happy in The Nations. So they took away our tribal lands and sent us here. I had a fine woman and two sons but they all died on the Trail of Tears.

I wore a frock coat to Washington before The War. We wore them because we belonged to the five civilized tribes. We dressed ourselves up like Abraham Lincoln. We got to see the secretary of the interior. He said, "Boy, you boys sure look civilized." He congratulated us and he gave us medals for looking so civilized. We told him about how our tribal lands had been stolen and how our humans were dying.

When we finished he shook our hands and said "Endeavor to preservere!!" They stood us in a line... John Jumper, Chili McIntosh, Buffalo Hump, Jim Buckmark, and me, I am Lone Waite. The newspapers took our picture and said, "Indians vow to endeavor to preservere." We thought about this for a long time, "endeavor to preservere", and when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union.




How did we sink so low in just 6 years? The lines between the democratic and republican parties are becoming harder to discern and the Military Commissions Act is another nail in our freedom coffin. The costs of this new order are way too high. As the Empire continues to drive us down this road we are witnessing first hand the death of the U.S. as we've known it! The death of democracy is imminent but we shouldn't be preparing for it's wake. We should instead be screaming at the top of our lungs at every availability! We should be walking down the street yelling to the neighborhood to wake up! We should be camped on the steps of our county courthouse handing out information to the public. We should be marching on the steps of our state capitals denouncing this turnpike of degradation.

Oh shit, it's time to go to work! I'll do those things tomorrow or maybe Saturday unless they offer me some weekend overtime today. I could use the OT with Christmas right around the corner! Besides the country won't self-destruct before next week anyhow! What's the hurry?
