How come we accept anything? We as people, we as citizens of a nation.
Almost ten years ago I found out that Christopher Columbus did not discover America. In school, the teacher’s taught us that Christopher Columbus and his crew, on three ships discovered the land we call home. The British found out that there was gold over here and they came over to discover what riches they could gather and take back home. The teacher’s told the story of the pilgrims and the Indians coming together and creating Thanksgiving. “Created this country out of nothing”…blah, blah, blah. The teacher’s not once said anything to us about the British killing all the Indian’s after that wonderful Thanksgiving feast. School taught us what they were allowed to teach and what was more than likely taught to them. Schools didn’t change the tune of that story until recently.
Enough of us knew this information not, to be true and didn’t make “them” stop-or should I say not, soon enough to ruin a lot of people. No one stood up and expected “them” to change the course of this information, why? Why are we willing to accept information that enough of us know not, to be true. We are trained to believe the information “they” feed us and we’re instilled with fear of “them”. Taught not to make accusations of “their” information or “their” governance. Who are “they”; well I’m not really sure, I believe that is how “they” like it.
I’m not going to say that we as American’s or citizens of any nation take anything “laying down” however, we do. How could we allow “them” to completely disregard us and pick the person we didn’t pick? Pick the person that by all accounts, cheated. America is the land of the free and the home of the brave but, our President (not current) stole the presidency! The creators of this nation said “to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government” Why have we not done that, because it would take too much! Because it’s not worth it; how do you know?
We won’t allow our children to lie to us and we teach them that lying gets you into trouble but, we listen to and vote for people who lie to us over and over again. We work for government agencies that commit more crime then “criminals” and we do nothing! We believe in a God that was taught to us by the same people that told us white and black people are from different species.
For me, all it really takes is one good lie and I’m done. Christopher Columbus was that for me. I knew that Bush fucked with us on that election but, I still don’t know or truly understand that entire situation. I’m not some crazy conspiracy, chasing woman that lives her life searching for crime or trying to take over the world. We are not doing that today, Pinky! I still support some people because there are a few! There are those out there that do, do things to make a difference; just as I do. And THANK YOU! I know that it only really takes, one person. We have to wake up and make changes. We have to stop allowing the people and the system we created, to dictate us. “They” work for us-We pay “Them”! The time is now, “they” are slowly working their way to the point where that doesn’t matter or exist any longer! The first thing that should change is; our vote, for president, should actually matter. We go out and campaign, we support to no end, we give you our hard earned money and if we vote for someone “they” still get whoever “they” want. That makes no sense what so ever!
I ultimately want peace in our great nation and the world as a whole. Equality, Love, Respect, Community, Dedication, Honor, Courage, Faith-world peace! I love my country! Our history makes us who we are but, the true history is totally hidden from us and it’s not fair or right! We deserve a nation that works for us and not against us and we deserve to know the truth. We can’t continue to lie to our children and expect for our country to have a fighting chance when were all dead. Our children have to be smarter and more prepared than us.
