America Has Become A Drone Society
By: J. D. Longstreet
is a painful time for Americans of my age. We have the memories of an
America, glorious and honorable in her past… a past, which has been
forgotten and erased, in many cases, from the history books of
America’s students. Above all
things our America was honorable. A young American today would be hard
pressed to define “honor.” To define “dishonorable” is much easier.
we Americans view ourselves in that inner mirror, we can know that even
today, America can be defeated… only by herself. And that is the
shameful path we have chosen.
One of our Founding Fathers and President, John Adams, once said: “Remember,
democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders
itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."
Americans of my generation, who still recognize a republic, when we see one, also recognize when that republic is gone. The American republic is gone … replaced by a socialist government… complete with Central Planning.
see, the new socialist government in America has grasped the American
economic system, and by doing so, it now has absolute power over the
American people. It will now rapidly proceed to destroy our liberty. Indeed, it has already begun.
are a few basic, fundamental truths people who live in a republic
know. Truths, which we Americans, have forgotten because our horrible
public education system failed to educate our children over the past two
generations. They are truths which all people who want to live free
know. Now, I am not referring to living free under a socialist
government and in a socialist society as we have now chosen. These are
truths FREE MEN and FREE Women (like we used to be) know.
Boetcker, an outspoken political conservative and Presbyterian minister
is perhaps best remembered for his authorship of a pamphlet entitled The Ten Cannots.
In that pamphlet he summed up so much of what modern day Americans have
forgotten. Some the most applicable “cannots” which would apply today
are summed up in the few lines which follow. Please read them and pay careful attention to what the Rev. Boetcker is saying.
cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot help
small men by tearing down big men. You cannot strengthen the weak by
weakening the strong. You cannot lift the wage-earner by pulling down
the wage-payer. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich. You
cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You
cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You
cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot build character
and courage by taking away men's initiative and independence. You cannot
help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do

it! But our elite intelligentsia in the US Congress and in the White
House doesn’t get it. Voltaire captured the current US Congress a very
long time ago when he said: "In general, the art of government
consists in taking as much money as possible from one party of the
citizens to give to the other."
One of our Founding
Fathers, Thomas Jefferson, would notice immediately the deep stain of
socialism on the fabric of the American Republic were he to see it today
under Democratic Party control. Jefferson said: "To take from
one, because it is thought that his own industry and that of his fathers
has acquired too much, in order to spare others, who, or whose fathers
have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily
the first principle of association, 'the guarantee to every one of a
free exercise of his industry, and the fruits acquired by it.”
If President Obama has said anything approaching truth during his meteoric rise to the Office of President and his "Bull in a China Shop" actions
since taking up residency there, it is the words he uttered declaring
that things will get a whole worse before they get better. That is
true. Right up until the country collapses, of the weight of its
government, things are going to decline.
The true movers and shakers of America understand what is happening and they are worried sick.
They are seeking cover until after the collapse. Then they hope to,
once again, try to build an America from the wreckage left by the
socialists masquerading as democrats in charge of our government today.
It would seem, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off. For the next few years we are left to stumble about in the darkness of socialism on our own. For, you see, my fellow Americans, we got ourselves in to this mess and it is up to us to get ourselves out of it.
Unfortunately, in the "bee hive" that once was America, Obama's fundamental change has, indeed, changed us from a colony of workers to a colony of drones. No colony, insect or human, can long endure in a drone society.
