Why "blame" anyone?
Take 100% responsibility for your situation, no matter who took action or inaction.
Don't depend on and then blame anyone! Take responsibility. With 100% responsibility, you can no longer ever be a victim. Imagine that!
Governments are never a solution. They become bloated, bureaucratic, corrupt and tyrannical. America's government is no exception, despite its beautiful, but now tattered Constitution. It was an imperfect document, at best, but far more beautiful than any previous constitution.
Now, we have bureaus upon bureaus, agencies upon agencies and corruption upon corruption.
The best thing we can do to change the corruption is to walk away. Don't give it any more of your power. Stop worrying about it. Be happy. For then you will attract more happiness. That's the real power of the individual.
The talk of secession is interesting, but likely won't go anywhere, because it needs millions of votes per state. The fact that 50 states have issued petitions brings up an interesting idea. What if the federal government rules only the District of Columbia. What a tiny country! No more resources. Tons of ill-begotten debt and no ability to pay it off. Comical.
We've bent to the fear mongering of corporate lobbyist led government for more than a century and it is destroying the country. Time to be independent, again! Time to walk away from the fear mongering, the lies and the tyranny.
The government continues to break the contract with the American people. We pledge our allegiance to the Republic which is based upon the Constitution, but the government has continually shredded that Constitution. If one party breaks a contract, does the other party have to abide by it?
But perhaps the better way to "secede" is to boycott Corporations, because they get their power from our dollars. Starve them out. And build a new country. It's time for a new, peaceful revolution.
