America ....Can we salvage our home country ?
A different hub for me ....
Is she still worth saving ? Can we even save her ? No matter what your party affiliation , no matter your race , ethnicity , no matter what your job is , your economic security , whether you are man ,woman ,child . If you are highly "educated "or a working man , Have you considered the direction that this nation is headed in ? Anyone would have to be naïve in a big way to not see our culture spiraling into the wrong direction ! The economy or our elected leadership ? No matter where you feel that the greatest amount of blame lies .It is probably our own apathy that holds the greatest "real " fault- as well as the answers to what direction we go !
If you believe that apathy is the fault of our impending political failure , Then consider this ......what will be the cost .....What will you and I lose of the most positive cultural accomplishments of possibly the greatest political experiment in history . And not if , but when this finally makes it's way into the streets , civil unrest will destroy all these accomplishments .
Once civil unrest rears its ugly head above the crowds and violence begins ,on campus' or in the inner city , in the capitals across this nation , everything we know about civility will quickly disappear ! I believe that all of our cultural accomplishments and the progress that has been made will quickly disappear from our radar.
Have you ever heard of a peaceful , non-violent civil war..... ? No!.. there will be major divisions in ,for instance , generational beliefs , in racial beliefs ,in areas of economic divide , there will be a rapid demise in the order of our society . And it will all begin with the breakdown in our societal order ! It has always been my belief that when a people begin to suffer from the most basic necessities of an orderly society , when hunger begins to work it's way into the average household, in the inner cities , when the causes of crime and civil disorder find there way into your neighborhood , into your family ! All of the normalcy of present day America will rapidly decline .
Here is the worse part though , ......There are those both in and outside of our great country that actually want this to happen ! I did not write this hub to alarm , to divide , to ignite or incite any form of violence , my only point is to alarm the American voter that it is Us ! You and I ,...... who must change the direction that we are now headed in . The next time you look out of your front window at the peaceful side of your neighborhood , imagine what it might look like in a civil unrest . The burned out town halls , the destroyed churches , the roaming of federal troops , the bodies lying where they fell , the thunder in the distance of police or government helicopters . ......Just imagine ! .....Can we save her ?
I know , I know , I have a vivid imagination ........But just imagine .
Something to think about !
