      I just had to post that on facebook. I hope you don't mind. So cool and true.

    • gmarshall says:

      Bravo! Couldn't have said it better myself!

    • barb patton says:

      I take exception to the word "idiots" because the idiots I have known in my walk thru life have been pretty harmless and normally had a sense of humour. This country is run by a man that is a "despot" the entire government is a corrupt group of yellowbacked terrorists. I would dare to make a sweeping statement and say that 'You know you live in a Country run by a rabid group of terrorists and treason mongers"… perhaps too strong?

      • Nah. You're giving the idiots credit for intelligence not in eveidence. The terrorists, raitors and humanists exist, and weild enormous influence on the idiots, but they work in the dark background and you don't know their names. The morons in government that seem idiotic really are.

    • Excellent post man, this should be on every website, alternative media site, local newspapers, blogs, and anywhere else ya can post it! Cudos!!!!

    • I would agree that the word 'idiot' is too weak in this context. An 'idiot' does not know what he or she is doing. These people are pure evil and know exactly what they are doing. I pray that God will forgive them, but not until he punishes them for their iniquity. This is the "great falling away" prophesied by the Apostle Paul. This nation has gone after satan, and has rejected God, so now there is nothing left but destruction.

      • The Tribulation time has started and guess what " Nobody has been raptured out" So we are going to have to go through like everyone else! A great study is on 119 ministries and scroll down to END OF DAYS study! You will find it a very well documented study!

        • Not to get into a theological debate, but there have been many times of tribulation (and we are certainly in one) but "The Tribulation" (Daniel's 70th week) has not begun. There are many signs it is near: The development of atomic bombs (1945 — "a third of the earth burned"), the re-existence of Israel (1948), the growth of the European Common Market, world-wide communications systems (TV and internet) — "and the whole world saw the Two Witnesses lying in the streets of Jeruslem." But one major marker remains undone: the reconstruction of the Great Temple on the Dome of the Rock. Plans are drawn, but a mosque now sits where the future Temple will be built, and sacrifices reinstituted.

        • victoriousspirit3 says:

          You're right! No rapture!

    • I need to make a copy of this and send one to each Congressman and Senator so they can all understand what IDIOTS THEY ARE!!!

    • Awsomely worded!

    • Very well thought out; but only one word need's changed, they are hardly IDIOTS as they KNOW what they are doing – destroying the middle class! Who destroys the middle class when they come to POWER, why the C-O-M-M-U-N-I-S-T-S- do, that's who and that's what they are. They are not IDIOTS but rather Godless, evil COMMUNISTS and the country had better realize this real fast BEFORE they take your guns as all these govermental R.A.T., "Government Altering Reality" mind control, perpetuated shootings where meant to facilitate! WAKE UP, WISE UP, RISE UP!

  2. You know you live in a Country FULL OF IDIOTS if…

    When the same types of politicians pushing the above policies keep getting elected.

    We’re screwed.

    • Yes but they are so articulate and experienced how could anyone including Pub voters vote for someone with a lower vocabulary with simple ideas like keeping our lands from being invaded with mass legal and illegal immigration, keeping our defense strong and eliminating government care programs and regulations? http://www.numbersusa.com / http://www.goooh.com

    • People do two things: 1) vote their self-interest and 2) get the government they vote for; more #1 than 2

  3. myopinion says:

    After watching the Rose Parade, New Year's Day , the reality hit me that the United States of America is now called North America, the Statue of Liberty no longer stands taller than other National Land Marks, but actually deminited in size. Obama has suceeded in transforming America into the world order of third world nations. For the sake of being an humanitarian nation we have given our country to the immigrants who just wanted a better life. What would we be if Brittian had won the war??what would we be if France, or Spain had succeed, ? I'm from Texas, what if we lost to Mexico? Well this great country we built had become a breading field for all the peions from the world to sink us to the level from which they came from. Americans !!! We are a white Nation, our good deeds have turned aganist US

    • Did u think that the bride in the parade was obviously pregnant? If so then shame on farmers insurance company

  4. Matt – save it. If you are one of the liberal swine, then you are more the racist than anyone. There is no such thing as racism. When all it takes to be labeled racist is disagreeing with that low-life in the oval office, you can take your rhetoric and shove it

  5. Only racists care if we are a “white nation,” which in reality we won’t be in 40 years. Please, go somewhere else, we don’t need racists in North America.

    • North America? Is that what they are teaching you WHO we are?

    • Jan Dinkins says:

      What race of people brought the most prosperity to this nation which, in turn, supports those who cares very little for this country except for what is given to them?

    • Whites are totally responsible for the western culture. We built this nation. The only reason your not speaking German right now is that over 400,000 white christian American men sacrificed their lives in WW2 for our culture. You know how many negroes died in WW2??? ………. 700. Thats right, ONLY 700. We paid the price in our blood to lead this nation and we will. Dont ever dismiss it. Its real, and its the only thing thats keeping you from being trampled by the 3rd world horde.

  6. Hey matt, you go somewhere else more suited for your progressivve nonsense !!!

    • Seymour Kleerly says:

      Thanks for honestly admitting that you're racist. Also for saying, honestly, that Progressives are not racist and that you think racism is nonsense. You need a third party ASAP.

  7. Bill in Texas says:

    cntd from before–I see little chance of saving the country but we migtht be able to save Texas and Oklahoma and possibly one or two others if we will seriously proceed with secession from the union , unfortunately Governor Perry who should be leading this effort is silent on the subject, it is a long shot but if we could susceed and kick all the liberals, progessive, other commies, homos out and adopt a new iron clad Republic of Texas constitution with strict term limits and line item vetos we might at least save part of the country and others that are conservastive and intelligent could emigrate to the Republic of Texas . Dirty trick to pull on the rest of the country to give them all our dum dums for their real people but what the heck. LOL

  8. What is being lost is the concept of a government based on a written constitution that protects the rights of the people who live under that government. It was meant to preserve the idea that people are free to pursue their own destiny as long as they don't infringe on the rights of others. The sanctity of private property has been perverted to the narrow idea of an internet billionaire worth so much he doesn't know how many houses he owns. If you don't believe in private property then you advocate slavery. Private property isn't just about material wealth; the money you earn from exercising skills and talents you possess is your property. The intellectual capital or even physical prowess (a la an Olympic gold medalist) that allows you to earn an honest living is your property, and should be inviolate and protected by government.

    I doubt there are 2 recent immigrants to this country out of 100,000 that understand the concept. That is what made America different from the Old World. As Reagan once said, America is the last outpost of liberty on earth. If that concept dies here, that's it. There is no haven against governmental persecution and exploitation after us.

    • Right Danno. As philosopher/writer Ayn Rand said: "Without property rights no other rights are possible."

  9. Michael4yah says:

    John Wayne said "Life is hard, it's even harder if your stupid" America is stupid. Most of our neighbors, coworkers, fellow church goers, are completely stupid. When your in a stupor then your stupid. America is in a stupor and they cant wake up. You talk and talk but nothing happens. The truth bounces off their foreheads like ball. Nothing short of God's own intervention will prevent the total destruction of this country. Period. We have been led to believe that those in Congress CAN cure our problems. Instead the Congress and the Senate are nothing but a ping pong table and we the PEOPLE are the ball constantly being bounced back and forth over and over. The DIRECTION of this country hasnt changed in 50 years. In 1963 our President was gunned down in a modern American city and the ones that planned it, paid for it, carried it out have not been caught, prosecuted or executed. People within our government participated!! By not stopping this conspiracy in the beginning "they" continue to get away with all the others. John Wayne said "Life is hard, and if your stupid its harder" or something to that effect. America is stupid. Most of our neighbors, coworkers, fellow church goers, are completely stupid. You see when your in a stupor then your stupid. America is in a stupor and they cant wake up. You talk and talk but nothing happens. The truth bounces off their foreheads like ball. Nothing short of God's own intervention will prevent the total destruction of this country. Period. We have been led to believe that those in Congress CAN cure our problems.

People within our government took part in it and some in the media covered it up. There are/were 1000s who KNEW who did it and why. That TRUTH has never been admitted or told to the American people by its own government. Since then every time there was an assassination or large scale death the government lied to us whether its RFK, MLK, Vietnam, Irak 1&2, Panama, Waco murders, Oklahoma City bombing, Pan Am 103, TWA flight 800, 911 WTC or Pentagon. How can you trust a government that lies to you? You cant. That TRUTH has never been admitted or told to the American people by its own government.

  10. Ron Paul tells it like it is. No spin from this man. He will be missed.

  11. G. Collins says:

    We as Americans are yet way too "compartmentalized"and distracted to ever cohesively unite as ONE MASSIVE FORCE to reckon with and either physically march by the millions on DC as well as every State capitol and demand immediate recourse, or arm ourselves and replace outright, the whole system as we once did in 1776!!

    One other thing to implement that would forever stop in it's tracks, any further "traitors" from holding such public positions of power is to root out every Freemason/Jesuit/secret society member and shut down their treasonous NWO CFR-Tri-Lateral/Federal Reserve organizations etc. These subversive groups are the real culprits behind the majority of this world's woes as they're nothing but Satanic agents of chaos and destruction of national sovereignty' so as to implement a global Luciferian Order!

    These are the dark lords that want every global citizen implanted with a RFID chip, so like animals to herd and control, they can wield ungodly power over us all! Sick murderous bastards are they, everyone of them from the initiates all the way up to the 33rd degree & above. Blood thirsty power mongers!

  12. "They're like a bunch of drug addicts looking for another fix." Bingo. Perfect. What's the main characteristic of drug or alcohol addiction? Denial. The addict is usually in total denial. He thinks that what he needs is another fix (or drink), but what he really needs is to quit. He can't see that. He thinks that he's got lots of problems, and that many, if not most, of his problems are other people. But his real problem is the drugs, or alcohol. Congress is the same way. They think the Democrats (or Republicans) are the problem. They think that lack of money is the problem. They think that foreign competition is the problem. But the real problem is easy money. It's corrupted them, it's corrupted Mr. and Mrs. America, it's corrupted the markets and the economy. Not to mention the banksters (but then, they were just dying to be corrupted).

    • KDanagger says:

      You've hit the nail on the head. All the immoral actions of politicians are symptoms of a system which is based upon the ultimate immorality – fiat money.
      "Francisco's Money Speech" from Atlas Shrugged comes to mind. It explains the problem as fully and eloquently as you will find anywhere.

      Until or unless we rid ourselves of this abomination, we will never be free and will keep sliding deeper and deeper into serfdom.

  13. I can hear a lot of angst in these posts and tend to share much of it. Forty years ago I led a small team of soldiers dressed in black pajamas and carrying AK-47s into Cambodia. All the while President Nixon was telling American citizens US troops were not in Cambodiia. So that is why our founders created a written constitution based on natural (God given) rights to limit massive government power against individual citizens. We have a unique view of citizen rights and the role of government based on circumstances of our founding. Yeoman farmers armed with rifles banded together to defeat the world's mightiest military in 1776. My travels have convinced me that folks in most other countries prefer centralized rule by strong men . Perhaps we need a new Conservative Party to replace the dying Republicans. we need to focus on getting the states to amend the constitution to institute term limits while there is still time…..

  14. As Dr. North likes to remind us, "Washington DC is hopeless". Too much corruption for an honest person to prevail.

    Fortunately Corruption tends to consume itself.

    Those of us who try to remember that 1 + 1 = 2 will be fine in the long run.

  15. Does anyone else find it ironic that "CEASEFIRE PA" is advertising on Gary North's site? I think that Dr. North needs to recalibrate his advertising channels so that he is getting the revenue that he deserves.
