Russia: America – Wake Up America?

thinkWake-up America:

It’s starting to get a bit depressing to say you’re from America, when people in Russia ask you. I almost always have to qualify the “yes,” in the past it was, “I too think George Bush is an idiot,” but now we have moved on to a president of parallelism, “I too think Obama is an idiot!” Then with added assurance, “We got what we voted for and that is the state of affairs in the U.S!”

What’s most depressing about America these days is that folks are either too scared to stand-up for the beliefs (e.g. Liberals) or they are so strident and fundamentalist as to sound almost crazy (e.g. Dick Cheney and the whole Conservative neocon movement). It’s gotten so scary in America that the neocons would say that this blog post is anti-American…

Sorry, but I’m not anti-American, I’m just anti-neocon America (i.e. the ideology that America is “the best” and that it’s the job of the American government to pursue its interests regardless of the cost)…

If you are silent and hiding behind your door, you condone all that is happening and as the saying goes, “If you are not a part of the solution, you are a part of the problem…”

What the hell happened to my America that I once knew and loved? That America that the whole world loved and admired is gone. America is falling apart at the seams…

Dear Kyle: Even though I can understand your bitter disappointment in the current state of affairs, I feel compelled to remind you that every nation sooner or later has to pass through valleys littered with ignorance. And such a dark vale is now unfolding and becoming glaringly visible from all corners of our precious planet. The lone wanderer to descend into its embracing arms this time: the West, led by a vainglorious America. America, however, is still a fairly young nation. What used to define America at her core were independent spirits and rugged individualists who could fend for themselves.… Read more »

Well, I can say that here in EU more and more people start hating the USA too. US ambassadors start telling us what to do, what to think!!!…more and more US propaganda in our media…it is becoming quite difficult not to hate Americans, sorry…I am not for some kind of collective guilt, but I don’t understand, why people in the USA are satisfied with this state of affairs and do nothing….their politicians are turning their country into a totalitarian state…and trying to do the same with Europe….if Americans don’t wake up soon, it may be too late….I keep hearing it… Read more »

Dani; Thanks for stopping by and thanks for a great comment. What you say is so true and I keep saying that payback is going to be hell one day…
