Agenda: Grinding America Down

Someone posted this in a thread a few days ago but I don't remeber who or where (War Machine I think). I watched it the other day and its a real eye opener and explains how this country got so fvcked. I felt it was worthy of it's own thread. If you care about this country, make the time to watch it.

At some point the film talks about how both parties have moved far to the left. The founders were real Republicans and now, the Dems are really socialists/communists and the so called Republicans are really Democrats. That really helps to explain how we got to this point.

I'm a retired Vet, love my country of course. But it has gotten to the point where the more I know about our Country, the more I wish I didn't know. I'm 100% disabled, I'm thankful for how the Military has taken care of me, but the way things are going, I don't know how much longer I can depend on my retirement. If I wasn't disable, I wouldn't care as much, but being the way things are, if my retirement went away, I would be hard pressed to try and provide for my family.

Thank you for your service.

Thought an interesting point in the vid was that, "the goal of socialism is communism." Had not heard the connection put that way before. Another point was that the goal for this country was never a socialist revolution but a socialist evolution. Reminds me of death by a thousand cuts. Oh, just a little cut, oh just another small cut, eventually you've bled out and there's nothing left.

Watched it. Shit was terrible. Its nothing more then a bible thumping propaganda that is hypocritical of everything that its mentioning in the "communist agenda" and promoting awareness of.

Pushing and repeating critical hit words. Trying to play on emotions with shit music. Christianity is falling due to science not a communist movement.

If you really want to understand why things are going south, watch zietgiest videos.

Bible has nothing to do with the golden rule. The golden rule moral aspect should be the foundation of anyone's upbringing, not faith.

I got about 30 mins into the Agenda video and had to stop. Whole thing is a bit of a stretch if you ask me, and the Religion aspect was annoying. Sure the parallels are there but I certainly don't believe it stems from the lack of God and the decline of family values. God, gays, decline of family has nothing to do with it, but can certainly be exploited by those who may wish to move things along a similar agenda, but they are not the cause of America turning communist. These videos just show how stupid the mass population is if you ask me.

No, there are for sure parallels to the dumb masses going along with socialism, I've been saying it for years, this shit happened in Russia, Germany...etc...I just think this dwelled far too much on the religious decline aspect as being a real cause of all our issues. Do I see the parallels with mass media being controlled. Do I see the parallels with more and more instances of the Federal Gov't being placed as a surrogate mother, wanting to take care of more aspects of our lives as if we 'need' it. Do I see the ridiculous 'quality' of education in this country? You bet I do, but lack of faith in God has not a ****ing thing to do with it.

And regarding Homosexuality as something as being fostered and 'welcomed' by the leftifts and communists. Look at EVERY country where Communism/Socialism took held. Stalin killed all the Russian homosexuals, (among pretty much 75% of everyone else) Hitler made all the homosexual Jews wear pink stars before they were killed along with everyone else, and China really frowns on Homosexuality. If it is so integral to leftist/communist/marxist movements, why were all of the homosexuals in those other countries systematically exterminated?

It's bible propaganda if you ask me.

As long as you could see the parallels. I don't care what anybody thinks about Christianity. I am a believer but I am not so blind that I can't see when man takes an interpretation the wrong way.

Believe me, I sure as hell do see the parallels. We may diverge on faith aspects, but all anyone needs to do is mildly studied history, and then turn on the TV. You should be concerned with the way things are headed, with the blind adoration/following and acceptance of new policies, it's pre-Bolshevik era all over again. There was opposition to Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, they just weren't loud enough and were subsequently crushed. I'd like to think that if the shit really hits the fan here, that the opposition here will not go by the wayside as every other former opposition to communism/socialism has in history. I am losing my optimism daily though....

There's a time to speak up, and a time to whisper. We're really close to quieting down. They will push their agenda no matter what the people say, just look at the healthcare bill.

But what if the shit doesn't really hit the fan? What if a speck hits it here, then another speck over there, on and on, but not all at once. Eventually the whole fan is brown, whether it was all at once or over time.
