Independence Day

233 years ago the United States declared it's independence from the British Empire. History has has shown that our independence is what brought about the unprecedented industrial growth, with free enterprise being the catalyst for common folks like us to build a better mouse trap, or even a better automobile. In the first twenty years there were at least two hundred manufacturers of cars powered by kerosene, diesel, steam, and electricity. Indeed there was a gas-electric car at those times that stored energy when it was coasting, but all of this changed by a monopoly between corporate oil interests and mass production of automobiles, trucks, and tractors. By the 1930's small manufacturers were decimated by a combination of Monopoly and the Industrial Revolution.

I guess one reason I'm posting this is that I live in a small town by the name of Independence and this is our big holiday of the year, but also because the last nine years has shown me that things ain't always as they appear and the real news ain't always what you hear. So I'm keepin my ear to the ground and my eye to the sky trying not to lose hope that there is a solution, short of revolution, to the takeover of our Constitution by a shadow government that answers to no one. A shadow government that is still advancing the manifestation of permanent war in the Middle East and beyond. A shadow government that controls not only the United States of America, but has strong ties to Israel and Great Briton. Yes, Great Briton, which is no longer the huge Empire of yesteryear, but hasn't really ever lost her ties with the US, Canada, Australia, etc.

233 years, actually 224, the last nine years don't count, because our government was stolen and our constitution declared null and void, have passed. The election of the absolutely best man for the daunting job of somehow pulling us out of the nose dive, when Bu$hco bailed out after jamming the controls, was cause for celebration. For awhile I actually believed that Obama could assume power, but like Bu$h and every other presidain't, it has been shown that his office is controlled by the banksters and neocorporate interests...G:

The Declaration of Independence states that "Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed [that's us, folks], --

"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

From top to bottom, this government has become destructive not only to us, but the world.

The Declaration goes on, "Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. --"

From top to bottom, this government has become destructive not only to us, but the world.

Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman on May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, author, poet and painter who has been a major figure in popular music for five decades. He once expressed that maybe his words were too strong when it came to this song, but it remains a work of art, poetry, and song. The video was put together recently by
