MASS DELUSION – AMERICAN STYLE (Featured Article) � The Burning Platform

It's curious why Jim is such a contrarian when there's so much to focus on that's positive. Where Jim's attitude belies him is he gets so wound up about all that's wrong that he conveniently omits proposing any solution. It's one thing to whine about everything, but entirely another to be part of the solution. Jim is perfectly within his right to be part of the problem. I continue to read him because I have nothing better to do, but when you make statements like, "The sociopathic powers .. need to be brought to justice" and "The criminals ... must be routed out" without proposing by what mechanism, and what laws beyond those of common decency have been broken then this post is much ado about nothing.

Americans aren't deluded, a con has been perpetrated with the complicity of their elected representatives. The proper response is to throw the bums out. If that doesn't fix the problem, a proper general revolt may be in the making. And we're not talking about malcontents burning a few city blocks of downtown LA, but more along the lines of the 60's civil rights riots.

On another note, It's heartening to read about God in the comments, and make no mistake, the leaders of the synagogue in time of Jesus Christ were a pit of vipers, as Jesus told them to their faces, "You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires." (John 8:44, ESV). There is no doubt in my mind the top levels of government and finance are similarly corrupt today.

To Jim's last pessimistic point, "before it's too late". Too late for what? And, of course, Jim offers no solution. The simple matter is that with $52T in unfunded federal entitlements, it's already too late, yet the seeds were sown in the 1960's with Medicare and Welfare. Medicare hid the real cost of health care in the federal deficit, Insurance companies must have paid a pretty dime for that one. Welfare effectively paid recipients to procreate, so they procreated. Fast forward 50 years to today, and when you pay people to not work, they don't work. America is on a road where the bridge ahead is out. There are a number of scenarios that could play out, but I have faith in the indomitable spirit of man, and in the goodness of God to preserve his remnant. Call it delusion if you will, but as surely as the sun will rise, God Almighty, the God and Father of the Lord, Jesus Christ, will not forsake his own. The devil doesn't take a day off, and neither should anyone who cares about the future of our country, and our children.
