ISIS is a very serious threat not only to Americans but all the world that is not Islamic, radical Islamic. Is ISIS the greatest threat we face? No! Corruption is our greatest enemy. Corruption in government exists and has existed……..always; not just democracy, but all forms. Corruption exists in every department; everywhere it has its crooked hand; we find corruption. We accept it, so it grows.
We have become a nation of acceptance; acceptance of corruption, we expect it. We see it in our daily lives. We see it in our government, from the highest office in the land to the localities. We accept lies, just pass them off as being the norm. Corruption passes us on the streets, the sidewalks, it just walks on by unconcerned, unpunished. It doesn’t matter if its recognized or unrecognized; “what difference does it make?”. Apparently none!
Corruption touches every aspect of our lives, one way or another and it is expensive. But, now that is okay, we are use to it, we’ve grown accustomed to corruption to a point there is little difference between right and wrong…..political correctness has seen to that.
Its arguable there are signs of non-acceptance; we have protests on the increase, when a cop kills a black man. It doesn’t matter if it is in self-defense or for a violent action to protect others. Occasionally there is a demonstration against abortion, but just that demonstration. It isn’t enough for change. I sound a bit contradicting here I know. But, we keep doing the same thing over and over, which all too often is “nothing”. Protest too often aimed at the wrong people; blocking the highway? Why not block the doors of Congress; while the morons are in session? Now your not just talking about a demonstration; now you have a revolution. Revolution, I must point out does not have to be violent. We must be smarter where we direct our energy; meaningful energy.
