    and what do you have to back up your claim? statistics?

    if you tried saying this on a school research paper you would probably receive a bad score for failing to cite your sources.

    Agreed - Americans have been indoctrinated... the only thing that can bring liberty back would be collapse, followed by the predictable period of authoritarian rule, and then only after some future generation has had enough, and they are able and willing to fight, will liberty be restored. It could be many, many decades before that happens... hundreds of years perhaps.

    It only took about 80 years to chop us down - 1 or 2 generations to plant the seeds. I agree with Yuri Bezmenov and the warnings he gave, and Antonio Gramsci and his prescription for overthrowing target societies, i.e. infiltrate the institutions, poison the well, and let the people enslave themselves through their own ignorance. Americans have bought into the lies hook, line, and sinker.

    America has become Oceania.

    then you are also fine with the Senate being corrupted as a chamber.... noted.

    Then you want democracy - but since every democracy in history has died the way we are dying today... maybe not such a good idea, huh??
