There are Two America's

The opposite of love is not hate; it's indifference.

The opposite of art is not ugliness; it's indifference.

The opposite of faith is not heresy; it's indifference.

The opposite of life is not death; it's indifference.

Because of indifference, one dies before one actually dies.

Elie Wiesel.

The First America:

We have the America where we all believe in Truth, Justice, and the American way.

Where every person is innocent until proven guilty.

Where there are no false imprisonments and that everyone who professes Christianity and religious tolerance actually lives by this .

This America is the Land of the Free and the home of the Brave.

The great melting pot of the world.

This America is a place where votes count and the will of the People and the Individual is sacred.

This America is the one that has the best of who we are as humans as the Ideal.

This America holds the Constitution to be the supreme law of the land.

This America believes that no one is above the law not even the President.

These are the ideals that we teach our children.

This America is the one where all people were created equal.

In this America our politicians tell white lies to get in office but are basically good ,moral, ethical people.

Then there is the Other America.

This America is ruled by the stock market and corporations.

This America has a private prison system that is designed to make a profit on imprisonment.

This America is run by corrupt, power-mad, war profiteering people who are capable of Genocide.

This America is trying to establish a New World Order.

This New World order does not value the individual rights, nor the Republic our Constitution was written to protect.

This America is run by secret organizations.
(CIA,FBI,ISA,Skull and Bones, New World Order conspiracists,)

This America is run by a corrupt, immoral, unethical government that is filled with people who dream and plot global domination for the wealth it will bring them.

This America destroys Mother Earth for profit, starts wars for profit, and conspires to overthrow other countries governments.

These Americas are in direct opposition to each other in Ideals and methodology.

These are two opposing streams of thought and belief system.

The average American believes in the First America and this is the America we know and love.

This is the America our solders fight and die for.

The Other America is the one that the world sees.

This other America is the America that many of the people do not want to believe exists.

The reason that they do not want believe it, is it means they would have to come up out of their apathy. It means we would have to become responsible for what our government has been doing in our name.

For many this is an overwhelming task.

This task is so overwhelming and is such a great contraindication to what we believe our government is that in many cases is to much for the mind to handle.
These people want their first America back. That is they want the illusion of that America back, for indeed it has truly never existed.
That America is the dream we all wanted.
The reality is this country was created out of genocide and slavery.
It was created from people who wanted wealth and they got it.
They got it on the blood of those that were already here.
But the Dream of America is the hope of the world and even though America was created by those who would bastardise the Constitution -the Constitution is the hope of mankind built on the best of humanities ideals.
We cannot allow it to remain unfulfilled.

Indeed America is one of the better countries in the world but when one looks at the world one is struck with the realization that one does not have to work hard to be better than many of the countries in the world.

America has been the dream of people all over the world. These people believe in the First America and that is my country.

The others are trying to make me take the Other America.

I do not want it.

I will do everything in my power to insure that the first America becomes the reality and that the Other America Disappears like the bad nightmare that it is.

I will not be indifferent nor watch in apathy as the dream of America that has yet to be fulfilled dies before it ever grows up.
Someone once said -"all it takes for evil to flourish is for good people to do nothing"
Jesus, Gandhi and Martin Luther King showed us the way!
Be The Change you want to see in the world!!!!!!
