PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY: PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY
By Frosty Wooldridge
October 29, 2009
Following up the two part series on “U.S. Filling Up with Dumb People”, an amazing number of emails arrived with a sense of heart break, distress and futility. Older Americans seem to think that America can return to the way it was! Younger Americans don’t have a clue as to the way it used to be! Immigrant Americans don’t know what America once was nor do they care about what we are becoming. They don’t know the difference.
Immigrants celebrate being here rather than being where they came from because where they came from can only be described as miserable enough to flee. Please be advised that over 10 million people wait in line to move to America and their numbers grow by 77 million annually. But as more and more of them arrive, they turn our country into the same chaos they left in their countries. Example: California!
As we change our language to many languages, as we change our ethnic makeup to a majority of Mexican-Americans and Muslim-Americans by 2042, (Source: PEW Research) as we change our dominant Christian religion that built this country—into a multicultural morass, as we lower our standards in education, culture and personal accountability—America will never again enjoy its exceptional past.
This quote bears repeating as it applies to America. In Dr. Otis Graham’s “Unguarded Gates: A History of America’s Immigration Crisis”, he writes, “Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide, but to absorb our global brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all--ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated planet.”
Last night, I was interviewed on the Jeff Rense Show at www.rense.com. We covered the “Tragedy of Detroit” and the two part series on America becoming a nation of dumb people. Rense’s audience could hardly believe that 42 million Americans cannot read. More emails piled into my inbox.
A reader wrote, “Just finished reading your latest about "Illiteracy" and thank you for the updates. I wonder if you have read: "The Closing of the American Mind" by Allen Bloom. The Subtitle is: "How Higher Education Has Failed Democracy and Impoverished the Souls of Today's students" Deliberately!”
Before 1960, Americans enjoyed a high degree of personal responsibility and personal accountability. Most graduated from high school and could read, write and work mathematical equations. No matter how poor or how illiterate, Americans worked to put food on the table. But after Lyndon Baines Johnson’s “Great Society” erupted with free food, free housing, free medical, food stamps and a host of ‘get something for nothing’, American culture for minorities changed and then, it changed for whites in America, too.
As apathy and tolerance grew, lobbyists and high stakes money changers directed Congress. McNamara cooked up the Vietnam War in 1965. As we sacrificed 58,300 young men, the high class grew even richer and more powerful. Those soldiers became pawns in a money game. No different today in Iraq and Afghanistan!
"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY." Hermann Goering at the Nuremberg Trials
Gross lack of personal accountability and responsibility
Today, we wage two wars for absolutely no purpose, no resolve, no victory and no end. Our 535 members of Congress, once touting our “war against terror” in Afghanistan, a country without one single jet, helicopter or missile--now find themselves lost in an immoral morass. None of them possesses the courage to stop the killing. Yet, they continue voting for spending $12 billion a month for two wars while our schools and health care systems collapse from lack of funding.
"Man is the only animal that deals in that atrocity of atrocities, War. He is the only one that gathers his brethren about him and goes forth in cold blood and calm pulse to exterminate his kind. He is the only animal that for sordid wages will march out…and help to slaughter strangers of his own species who have done him no harm and with whom he has no quarrel. …And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood off his hands and works for "the universal brotherhood of man" — with his mouth." — Mark Twain, "What Is Man"?
That same group refuses to stop insourcing, outsourcing and offshoring of American jobs while 14 million Americans suffer in unemployment lines. With 35 million Americans subsisting on food stamps, that same Congress allows 2.5 million legal and illegal immigrants into this country annually.
We face ominous challenges as to water, energy, climate destabilization, foreign debt, consumer debt, education, crime, illiteracy, but our president and Congress run, duck and hide from dealing with it.
Meanwhile, we inject 1.2 million high school dropouts into our society annually along with 2.5 million third world immigrants. (Source: NBC’s Brian Williams, June, 2008) We cannot keep up with it or its consequences. Visit this site for a rendition of Colorado Governor Lamm’s speech: “How to Destroy America”
Mark Twain said, “Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his own tail. It won't fatten the dog.”
A mind-numbing 2.3 million Americans languish in our prison system.
For lack of education of its citizens and a sense of responsibility of every citizen toward this civilization, the United States cannot and will not survive as a viable culture, language and people.
Intellectual Poison of Multiculturalism
If what we’re doing to ourselves is so good, why isn’t it working?
We must move toward personal responsibility and accountability for every single person in America to read, write, work mathematics, vote, work and think critically. If we don’t, we can expect more of our current dilemma—only worse by the expected 100 million people added to this country within 26 years.
