Trust

We have this dilemna of having to live with each other in a society.

You know, the whole problem of not being able to get everything done on our own, needing each other to survive.

We don't expect perfection, but there's a minimum basic standard. There's a line that once crossed can't be uncrossed.

Can't put it back together again once its broken.

People on the left and the middle want to know why we want to say no to everything, don't believe in government, all that refrain.

"Don't repeal it, fix it" they say about national healthcare.

You know what? Lots of us would like better healthcare. God knows we're not rich.

It isn't about money.

It isn't about facts.

Both sides can put out their doctored up academic studies with plenty of footnotes.

We don't have the time to read them let alone the expertise determine their veracity.

It isn't even about philosophy for most of us.

It's about broken trust. Learning from experience.

Fool me twice, right?

We don't trust you, we know the game. We'd rather be broke and on our own than be fools.

So keep your healthcare, keep your fixes and projects.

Get real jobs. F-ck off, and leave us alone. You need us, we don't need you.

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

Thats the best thing I've ever heard from you

You nailed it here for the general overarching issue. We don't trust people who respond to repeated requests for redress with repeated injury upon us.

Whether it is the fact that government is used for never ending wars for defense contractors' profits and private bankers' agendas, extorting us out of our own property, protecting the schit out of us, freeing the schit out of the middle east, healing the schit out of us, or the insane psycho thugs on the street who want to beat us if they can't control us, or executing an entire drug war on innocent people led by the drug runners themselves, or printing unlawful debt based currency to steal everyone's prosperity and enslave us to debt; the bottom line is the TRUST IS GONE.

Thank you BILL3!

The sooner the trust is gone by all good people and we stop paying them, the sooner we can start cooperating with one another to actually address the issues we face and have the resources we need to actually do something about those issues. The time has come to stop paying for criminals to enslave us to their never ending terror upon the whole world.

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...
