V Could Be Our Reality...And Soon

I can remember buying V for Vendetta and leaving it in the plastic, waiting for the right time to bust it open. I had put off seeing it in the theater not because I didn't think it was worth my money but some of my friends wanted me to see it with them and they kept procrastinating and before you know it, it's only at the $3 theater. $3 sounds like a good deal until you consider the fact that you might be sitting in a seat filled with more cum than Lil Kim's stomach, at one point or another. I'm good on that. I just bought it and waited...for that right time.

My parents came to visit me a couple of years ago and we were looking through the movies to see what we wanted to watch and as it turns out, none of us had seen V for Vendetta. I was BLOWN away by the message that was being sent and how much I ACTUALLY agreed with V. My father even asked my opinion on the movie and we talked for a good hour afterwards about how scary the reality of that actually happening was. I came to the conclusion that day that this could very well be our state of the union in a few years. It's looking like those few years have arrived...

Yes, I know it's wrong to break the law but the government does it everyday and gets away with it. What if you could break the law in the name of freedom for your rights and actually get away with that shat because you were THAT on point with your mission? I most certainly would take advantage...but seeing that being an anarchist is not my purpose in life, it most certainly won't happen in this lifetime...for me.

Watch that movie if you haven't seen it yet and don't be shocked if you feel like our government is QUICKLY heading towards a totalitarian style of government. I know there are some people out there whose faith in the government doing the right thing is STRONG. You are to be commended for having faith in the unseen. The REALITY is this:

"The powers that be" (whoever they are at any given moment) can do as they please because the government is not ran by "the people". It is ran by "some people" who happen to have access to "the money".

Case and point: today I'm listening to the radio and this young lady, maybe a year or two younger than me comes on to talk to Frank Ski and Wanda. They asked her how her voting experience was (she went on Tuesday). She went on to sigh heavily and then state that she stood in line for a while, finally gets to the lady who is taking information and she has her identification and voter card in hand and the lady taking her information pauses.....then asks her if she is a United States citizen. The young lady is confused because YES, SHE IS a citizen of the United States. The computer states that she isn't. 

The lady taking the information apologizes and says that its been happening all day; people are being randomly selected and marked as "non-citizens" so now they have to PROVE they are a citizen in order to vote. No one walks around with their birth certificate or even their passport on them. So this means, they have to leave the polls, go FIND whatever information they need to prove their citizenship, and come back to stand in them ridicul lines. You do know that A LOT of people are not going to do that, right? Right.

Case and point: on CNN this morning an older White man in THE SOUTH was voting for Barack but every time he pressed Democrat, it would jump to....dearest McCain.

It is my STRONG belief that the government will CONTINUE to ALLOW this buffoonery because we as a people (in the U.S.) love our capitalism SO much that we will not raise arms against the government. As the days pass, it is becoming painfully OBVIOUS that the government is NOT for the people...and to be honest, it never was. The government serves its own selfish purpose (ALWAYS HAS) and only turns to the people when they need our faith, hope, and "help". Because I believe this am I insinuating that I am going to attempt to overthrow the government? Yeah right!!!! And get shot down the minute I step foot out this building? I think not. But that doesn't mean someone isn't gully enough to convince others to do it and lead them in their efforts...much like V did. And then be labeled terrorists...funny.

When we "the people" have nothing left to lose, that is when the government should begin to fear "the people". I was once told by a wise man that people who have nothing to lose take the biggest risks in life and usually cause the MOST damage and...are VERY dangerous. We "the people" are almost to that point of having nothing left to lose. The government takes and takes, thinking there are no consequences for their actions...no one said the truth was always pretty. It just is what it is. 

So all the people who believe in the power of prayer better start praying yesterday...it's my belief, it's only going to get worst. Sorry for the realistic views with your coffee....

V for Vendetta is in my top ten movie list...

I do feel like we are at a time where the government should AND will fear its people, right now things are at powder keg status and there are lots of matches and lighters around for sure.....

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
