Letter: Can the United States survive?

To the Editor:

Does the United States have the moral fitness to survive? The history of the present government of the U.S. is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations all having the direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let a few of many facts be submitted to a candid world.

Congress has affected to render the military independent of and superior to the civil power, allowing the military industrial complex to engage in endless wars and charge the treasury with its debt.

Congress has cut off trade through sanctions that cripple targeted nation’s populations, using the pretext of Right to Protect to advance multinational business interests.

While bombing countries back to the stone age, then refusing to help rebuild, American officials’ heads explode when Iraq signs a letter of understanding with China where the Chinese will buy Iraqi oil and then help them rebuild their nation.

The Department of Injustice and factions among political parties have wasted millions of taxpayer dollars in failed attempts to repeal Obamacare and impeach President Trump.

The COVID-19 pandemic shows how the nation’s health care system established in the post-WWII years, specifically the Hill-Burton Act, which mandated the number of hospitals, beds and staff in each county in the U.S., has been looted by the for-profit managed care corporations, insurance giants, and Big Pharma.

As Edward Snowden exposed, the NSA was spying on everyone and keeping a permanent record negating citizens protection under the Fourth Amendment.

We as a nation have morphed into our oldest and most dogged enemy, the British Empire. We no longer have a National Bank but the cash cow for swindlers, the private Federal Reserve Central Bank.

We no longer protect our industries and manufacturers, but joined the British in ‘Free Trade,’ looting both ourselves and whomever we trade with, and our dominance in science and technology is waning as we encourage enforced backwardness like favoring windmills which can never produce enough energy to replicate itself, while shutting down nuclear power plants.
