in spite of myself

i can't stop putting out the truth and valuable info. in reality, it's futile. there is no change and nothing left to really believe in- except ourselves. and isn't that what the common folks have always done in america? truth be told, america was founded- not by common folks but by elite nobleman and landowners. for them. and what they wanted it to be. not us.

we were sold a bill of goods and generations of us believed in the narrative- america for the people by the people. it was all a lie. now, we are splintered into crazy, right wing nutjobs manipulated for agendas out of the loop for us; left wing corporate shills who sold their souls to the highest bidders and forsook their principles for profit; confused and naive masses who want something to continue to believe in- and the rest of us. those of us who see and know where we are headed and realize that there isn't a god damned thing we can do at this point beyond living the rest of our lives as best we can.

i have been reading walt whitman these last few weeks- and i really admire his spirit. he had this vision of america and democracy that was so idealistic- so hopeful. 120 years or so later- well, let's just say walt would be sorely disappointed. he witnessed the civil war once- and i know that he would be heartbroken to know we have revived it.

Billie they will succeed in instigating others to fight their 2nd revolution but they are not going to like the way it turns out!
