Are we witnessing the end of the American Empire?

The American economy is today clearly in freefall. Washington, D.C., is spending money we don’t have. Our borders are nonexistent, with millions streaming across, many unskilled, illiterate, disease-carrying, criminal, or potential enemy combatants.

We are already engaged in World War III by proxy against the largest nuclear power in the world for no discernable U.S. national interest other than enriching the military-industrial complex and politicians.

Elections are rigged, not as a conspiracy theory, but in the opinion of most Americans. It is indeed, as George Carlin observed, “a big club and we ain’t in it,” especially for those who believe in timeless principles of natural law, unalienable rights, the Constitution, and the Bible.

In 16 months, there will be a major election that will determine whether America displays a bright side of life or more gristle. Not only a presidential election but all the House, a third of the Senate, as well as hundreds of state governors, legislatures, attorneys general, secretaries of state, and local officials.

If sanity doesn’t return to American culture and governance, where are we headed? Can the elections even be trusted? Or will elections even happen? Will there be a false flag event leading to delayed or canceled elections for “public safety”? We are on the verge of nuclear war with Russia. How many pathogens, developed in America’s vast international network of 300+ biolabs, are ready to be unleashed on America and the world, requiring draconian lockdowns and travel restrictions, closing society North Korea-style, making elections “too risky”?

Who, if elected, can turn the tide against a tyrannical government? Only an outsider, unbeholden to corporate and ruling class donors, has a chance to stem the tide of American decline. Two names currently in the presidential race come to mind, Donald Trump and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Both are outsiders, skunks at their respective political party’s garden party. Both are a threat to the status quo, and the ruling class will move heaven and earth to keep both far from the White House.

If the wrong people control government after the 2024 election, expect a stacked Supreme Court that believes in a “living Constitution,” meaning that free speech and association are now deemed “unsafe” and the right to bear arms can be infringed for “public safety.” Think, say, or do wrong in the eyes of Big Brother, and life as you know it will cease, figuratively or literally.

We are living in a totalitarian state, but most of us don’t yet realize or acknowledge this. When we do, it will be too late.

This is not a call to arms but, instead, to thinking and insisting on more from our elected representatives. It’s time to demand of them a government, as Abraham Lincoln declared in the Gettysburg Address, “Of the people, by the people, for the people.”
