America ....Can we salvage our home country ?

Updated on November 10, 2013

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 !

      I look at my country and see Greece, as it was several years ago. Slightly troubled, so they pile on things to help the people that don't have. I can see this country falling into the same trap of providing for the have-nots and forgetting that the economy cannot support that for long. When the haves run out of money, the whole country goes down the tube. We need to get our country back in control of its finances or we will be bankrupt too. When that happens, everyone that is needy will be rioting too. We just need to convince our legislators that we do not need more handouts, we need more jobs and that is what they should be working on.

      Giving us an eye-opener, your are, ahorseback. You think you have a vivid imagination? No ! You see what could happen if WE do not wake up and make it right again. Thank you for expressing your thoughts. It is no longer time to ponder -- it is time to take action.

      Thank you for this. It is my opinion, not enough people are angry... yet. ...and then there is Rome.

      Thought-provoking hub here dear Ed! Honestly, I believe what your "imagination" has come up with, could very soon become a reality if, we the people of this great country, do not wake up and wake up soon!

      Up and more and sharing

      God bless you,
