I Don’t Think So

The rise of the spirit of independence? *independence

A new kind of rebellion is brewing?

I don’t think so.

From where I’m sitting, all I can see Americans brewing up are lattes and designer beers, and the only spirit I see anyone vehemently demonstrating is for their favorite sports team. And, regarding the latter, I have to ask; “Does it REALLY matter?”

I don’t think so.

We have, over the course of time, given away our freedoms. The independence from tyrannical rule we—as a country and people—have cherished and enjoyed for over two hundred years has been taken from us by the very people we elected to represent us. The sad thing is we have allowed them to take it because we have too much. We are the richest country on this earth, and we’ve allowed ourselves to become enslaved by the comforts and conveniences our money provides us. We like to blame our government, but the reality is we’ve done this to ourselves. At the very least, we’ve been willing participants, allowing ourselves to be lured into the pen by bigger and better toys and the chimera of freedom. Will we rebel when the gate clangs shut?

I don’t think so.

A full scale rebellion will most likely never again happen in this country, because, as a whole, people are afraid; afraid of upsetting the applecart and losing all or even some of their comforts and conveniences. A revolt will happen only—maybe—if and when those comforts and conveniences are taken away. But… if they close the gate, and we still have them, will we revolt?

I don’t think so.

*This post was inspired by an article (What Happens If Hillary Isn’t Indicted, by Roger L Simon) written about the “alleged” misdeeds of Hillary Clinton and how we might react to her not being indicted for those misdeeds. I have another question: Is anyone reading the article, or this post, really going to do anything (besides rant about it on FB) if Mrs. Clinton is not indicted?

I don’t think so.
