Thats right even with the IRS executing illegal practices, the NSA violating a right to privacy, an amnesty bill around the corner, a healthcare law which threatens the economy while proving to be almost unstoppable; still 1 in 3 Americans think we are on the right track.
Speaking of the healthcare law, 45% of American favor the healthcare law, thats almost 1 out of every 2 people in the U.S. being in favor of an economic calamity.
Its clear why those Americans think this way, progressives have spent decades warping the public education system into a progressive proselytization machine whereby millions of Americans were not taught accurate portrayals of history and instead were force fed a healthy helpings of Sociology.
If these Americans had been taught history, then they might have been familiar with “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by: Edward Gibbon” which states:
“The number of ministers, of magistrates, of officers, and of servants, who filled the different departments of the state, was multiplied beyond the example of former times; and (if we may borrow the warm expression of a contemporary) ‘when the proportion of those who received exceeded the proportion of those who contributed the provinces were oppressed by the weight of tributes.’ From this period to the extinction of the empire it would be easy to deduce an uninterrupted series of clamors and complaints. According to his religion and situation, each writer chooses either Diocletian or Constantine or Valens or Theodosius, for the object of his invectives; but they unanimously agree in representing the burden of the public impositions, and particularly the land-tax and capitation, as the intolerable and increasing grievance of their own times.”
Anyone can read this text, take a look at our the current direction of the U.S. and see plainly that we are heading toward a collapse.
In the words of President Reagan, “It’s still trust by verify. It’s still play, but cut the cards. It’s still watch closely. And don’t be afraid to see what you see.”—from his farewell address in regards to pure communism.
