After President Obama signed into law the NDAA, the ACLU quickly stepped into action with a petition to stop it. We elect our Presidents and Congress to represent us , but they are no longer doing this. Our President made promises to "the People" to abide by the Constitution, but he has trounced all over it and will continue to do so unless stopped.
We are at a turning point in this country, with many thousands unemployed, with no hope of finding work. My sons have stopped looking, as many have and are not being counted anymore as an unemployed static. Obama's help for homeowners is an obysmal failure, and the banks are continuing to foreclose on folks in droves. We are still fighting in Afghanistan, and the war drums are beating now to invade Iran and Syria. How many wars do we need to be in? At what cost to our society? It's the taxpayers who are paying for these never-ending wars.
Obama has broken promise after promise, and yet I still run into folks that want to support him. Why, I ask, when he has invaded countries like Libya, without Congressional approval? He didn't care about what was the right thing to do. Obama has increased military strength at a time when no one has invaded the USA, and this country is in fiscal disrepair. Obama always caves into the Republican agenda, and then acts like they made him do it.
What really should make you angry is that -not one-banker have been investigated nor gone in front of a Grand Jury for the financial mess they created in the first place. For a short while, they ceased their behavior, but they are speculating and gambling again, with our money. The Federal Reserve continues to lend out money(only a line entry as no money is ever exchanged), to the U.S. government and now we are propping up other country's economies. The obscene campaign donations , and the fact our officials are being "bought off" is unbelievable, but unfortunately-true.

We must get the money out of politics or else we will continue to see our officials being bought and paid for. Link to Get the Money Out of Politics. Our family has put our money into a local credit union as they will never ask to be bailed out.
If we don't rise up to this corporate and military take over in this, the greatest country, with so much potential to feed its people, to prosper and grow, and pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, then we are doomed to live a life of constant surveillence, police brutality and nothing left of our Bill of rights, nor Constitution.
Written by Martin Niemöller , around 1945, is a popular model for describing the dangers of political apathy, as it often begins with specific and targeted fear and hatred which soon escalates out of control.
First they came for the Communists
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionist,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Our government is getting ready to implode our monetary system sometime soon, as our national debt is so out of control, that our Great, Great, Great...... Grandchildren can't pay it off.

Although there is many who believe in the Mayan prediction that the world will end on December, 11, 2012, it will not. But that would stop the hoarding of supplies during that time period, that will cause grocery shelves to be empty, and food prices to soar. Everyone in the USA alone is only 3 days of food away from starving. That is a fact. But you can prepare for any disaster by slowly stocking up on basic essential food and non food supplies over a period of one year. Ready? Begin now!
The list below is just an example of what you might want to stock up on.
