Red Pill, Please

So why would a middle class white boy grow up to become an enemy of the State?

That's how it all began, after asking myself that very question. One day I realized that I was no longer like the others, the scared little sheep in this country. I could no longer pledge my allegiance to a fascist State, wave the flag, and recite the brain dead mantras that I used to. I knew that I could no longer act as though everything was alright.

I was only fooling myself when I said, 'I'm taking the blue pill.' There is no way I could go back to that world after everything I know. America is no longer the bastion of freedom I had once thought it to be. The people had now preferred the illusion of security over freedom. They no longer cared what the government did to them as long as it offered them a false sense of security. Yes, steal from me, search me, spy on me, take my kids, take my guns, ask me for my papers, but please don't let the boogeyman get me!

I could never be like these mindless zombies again. These scared little creatures begging to lick the hand that feeds and protects them. I am disgusted to call myself an American anymore, and to be associated with these pathetic creatures. These wretched little sheep that plan their lives around what color the Department of Homeland Security decides to scare them with. Yellow, oh no they're coming; orange, run and hide; red, were totally fucked! A small plane passes within three miles of the White House and everyone shits themselves in fear.

This country lost its collective mind on September 11, 2001 , and I don't think it will ever get it back. We have become a nation of scared children, all because of something called 'Al Qaeda' and someone known as 'Osama bin Laden.' If there really is such a person, he must be delighted with the knowledge that he did not take our freedoms, our own government did. We are told that to stay free, we must give up our freedoms. Well then, what's the point? The Founding Fathers would hang their heads in shame if they were to see what we have become.

I know I said before that I thought there was no freedom movement. After people read that part, I received hundreds of e-mails from people asking me to please not throw in the towel. A lot of them even said my words inspired them. That's a really great feeling knowing something that you said inspired even one person, much less hundreds. I knew then that I may have not thought it through. For every person who is standing up with fist or finger raised at the State, there are many more waiting in the shadows for someone to make the first move. I don't know how many there are, but my guess is they number many.

I am ashamed to admit that the main reason I attempted to drop out was out of anxiety. I was told from some people (who would know) that the FBI and other criminals were monitoring everything I did on the internet, including my Strike The Root columns. Needless to say, this was troublesome since I was already on the Nazis' list for being accused of committing a 'fake crime' in my past. Since I had already been through the sham known as the criminal justice system once, I thought it would be best to lay low for a while.

I have since changed my mind. Now my attitude is, fuck them! The fact that they are watching me and reading what I am writing only encourages me more. What I am saying must be hitting a nerve with someone or they would not care enough to worry about it. Too bad, I will not be silenced. I am right; I not only think I am right, I know I am right. They can arrest me, jail me or kill me, but I will go down with my middle finger held high in the air!

Since I now know that I have a captive audience of Nazis hanging on my every word, I would like to say welcome, pull up a chair and read, you just might learn something. I am not the bad guy here, you are. I don't ask for your money, only that you leave my money alone. I don't ask for your security, only that you leave me alone. I don't want your help, only that you leave me alone. I ask nothing of you except for you to leave me alone.

We must continue to fight the good fight because we are right. As I write this, the Nazis have just passed the 'Real ID' Act. Of course, microchips are right around the corner, as well as all sorts of things we can only imagine. It's going to get much worse before it gets better, if it ever gets better at all. We need to educate as many people as possible to what's going on. The average person is an idiot, but we have to try.

I have found that it is much easier to sell the idea of freedom to younger people than it is to try to change the minds of the older ones. I see this as an advantage, as the older ones will die off sooner anyway, leaving the next generation to step up. I have decided not to waste my time on anyone over the age of 30, because their brain is already too fucked up. I am going to concentrate on the younger generation, as they grasp the concept of freedom much easier.

If everyone can get through to just a couple of people, and they can do the same, it could be enough to make a difference. It's going to be hard, and I know that I may feel like slamming some of these idiots' heads against the wall at times, but we have to try.

I have decided to begin with what should be something very easy; explaining that we are not a democracy. I still can't believe I am having such a hard time with this. The public fool system has done their job well; we have our work cut out for us.

Okay it's time for my medicine . . . red pill please.
