    If you were fighting or seeing a war, how would you really know what side you were on?

    Today, there are 12 million human souls suffering in the plight of slavery. Whose side is going to do something to stop it?

    Is there not enough support for a military power such as the US to do something about it? Why are we not bringing the fight against the enemy? Are we too busy wearing powdered wigs while listening to wire taps?

    Are we really going to be the generation that did nothing during another holocaust?

    Okay, so I went to Slaveryfootprint.org.
    I see some of what you mean;  will maybe read more....
    I do hope that group also fights for the lives of American girls and boys who are kidnapped and become slaves in foreign Countries...........

    AND that organization just might want to keep an eye on Obama,  who is a wannabe slave-master right here in America,  with his tyrannical bullying words and tactics and agenda.   If we don't watch out,  we American citizens will be in need of being rescued.   Joe Biden is already his lackey.    And China may "own" us all, lock stock and barrel,  before Mr. Obama ever listens to those of us who want the National deficit to be paid down.

        I think it's just that you bury your head deeper in sand every day.
        If there's enough sand in Canada, anyway..............
        Am I remembering wrongly,  or aren't you a Canadian?
        And if you are,  I'm wondering why in the world you feel so free to cut down my opinions as an American citizen about my own Government,  about which I have EVERY right to vet, speak out against those who are supposed to be civil servants but who are acting like tyrants, and every right to call into account.

            ....because Obama doesn't support the Muslim Brotherhood who in turn support slavery...

        Hey you two, knock it off. We can fight about who gets to dust off the statesman's wig later.

        This message board is about ending poverty and slavery across the globe.

          Guess you told us, didn't you?!   roll

          Tell me, Andrew,  does that group you referred to advocate for helping to end the slavery of Americans who are kidnapped and taken to foreign Countries?    America is part of "the globe", ya know.

          Which is suggesting may be a noble goal but I'm having a hard time understanding how much manpower and resources it would take to accomplish such a task.

          Generally those in power are not looking to give up their slaves we need only look at America and the North fighting against the South. If a condition such as slavery has been around for some time people tend to see it as an expectation-that's the way it's has always been and that is the way it will always be.

          Without plenty of wars and bloodshed I can't see how this task can be successfully accomplished.

            Are you afraid that the situation may end up with some blood shed and ruin a few lives in the process of saving millions of lives? Or are you afraid of bloodshed?

            I'm having a hard time understanding why someone would worry about the amount of energy it would take to free enough people capable of forming an entire nation.

            Simply because blood is spilled does not mean that the task failed...

              Yes I am concerned with bloodshed for you see I believe every single life is precious.

              If you saying that achieving the objective is and should be the only goal irrespective of the method then essentially what you're saying is it is okay to kill 8,000,000,000 people as long as the objective is reached.

        Uninvited Writer, you must watch the Corporate Party news. How quaint.

        If you really did some digging, you would find Obama talking about his "Kill List" which includes Americans on it. That's Treason! That goes against everything that America stands for -- or used to stand for. Obama said he'd restore habeas corpus, but instead, he signed into law more erosions of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Like NDAA with its indefinite detention clauses for Americans (no phone call, no charges, no attorney, no hearing). Some whistleblowers have already been treated this way (Lindauer, Drake, Manning). And government tyranny continues to become worse and worse.

        Oh, but you follow the Corporate Party news media, don't you?

        Did you know that the same people who own the media also own the Military-Industrial complex? And war is sure profitable. And war becomes easy when tyranny prevails -- especially when it appears to be free and open.

        Wake up! Obama and Bush were both treasonous puppets of the Corporate Party, psychopathic elite. The evidence is still available, if you care to dig. Try Ben Swann, Judge Napolitano, James Corbett and others. The facts will singe your eyebrows.

        But the government is trying to close the Internet with things like SOPA, PIPA, CISPA, TPP and others.

    andrew savage, interesting question and interesting website.

    If you step back and look at the bigger picture, you'll see the hungry beast -- Corporate Party America and Corporate Party Earth sucking the life out of every nation and peoples.

    There are a psychopathic elite few who would just as soon have only 500 million slaves, rather than the current 7+ billion. It's more manageable. That means they have to get rid of 6.5 billion people. And they're not above murder.

    Americans are so deluded. They listen to the Corporate Party media and think they're getting the straight story. Oh, there are scandals and revelations, but only the ones the Corporate Party psychopathic elite want to reveal. If someone like Michael Hastings gets too close, they take him out. Or they throw them in prison until their knowledge is no longer a threat -- like Susan Lindauer and Thomas Drake. They were in prison for up to a year with some charges so secret, even they were not allowed to know what they were being charged with.

    America has become the new Evil Empire.

    The best we can do is to walk away from it. Walk away form everything corporate. Starve the beast, before it devours us all. Sound paranoid? Conspiracy theory?

    You have to ask yourself,
    * What would a psychopath do with unlimited power (trillions of dollars and massive military might)?
    * Have there ever been conspiracies in the history of humanity?
    * Has a banker ever been greedy?
    * Has anyone ever committed murder for money or political gain?

    The evidence is all around you -- regrettably not in the Corporate Party media.

    Wake up to the real enslavement. It's happening right in the United States and the psychopaths know just how to play our egos like a symphony. Problem-Reaction-Solution. They create a problem, we react, and they offer their pre-packaged solution.

    Obama is a natural.
