Americans must realize where country is going

Divide and rule, or more commonly known as divide and conquer, is a fact of life today.

"They" -- the 1 percent or whatever you want to call the financial powers today in this country -- are successfully dividing and conquering while "we" the people, as defined in our Constitution, fight and bicker over our politics and different beliefs. They skim the cream off this great country, while the country and the vast majority get further and further behind monetarily. We need to take off our blinders, come together and get this ship of state back on course, or our democracy will be replaced by oligarchs who are orchestrating the demise of our democracy.

It's not too late, we need to vote in individuals who will work together for the good of us all. "All for one and one for all" is a whole lot better than the different camps we have divided ourselves into. Remember! "Divide and Rule."

It is said that Nero fiddled while Rome burned. We bicker while our infrastructure crumbles around us. The United States, one of the richest countries on this planet, is starting to look like a third-world country with crumbling bridges and streets and roads sorely in need repair, etc. Stop this divisiveness long enough to look around at what we arc going to be leaving our children. I, for one, do not want my children and grandchildren to be beholden to oligarchs for crumbs from their tables.

It's time to wake up as to what is really happening here.

Stop accepting labels like Red State and Blue State. We are all Americans of the United States. When we totally forget that, it will be the end of our democracy as we have known it. Wake up, America. We arc being used by individuals who want to replace our democracy with an oligarchy.

Stop worrying so much about Big Brother government, and worry about the real threat, Big Boss oligarchs who want to rule us.
