THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR DISOBEYING YOUR GOVERNMENT

When in the course of human events is it okay to take violent action against the government? NEVER! Our Declaration of Independence is an excuse for violence against a repressive government, but that was a long time ago. Since then, humans have advanced and have learned to treat one another with fairness and decency. Right? Will violent rebellion ever be needed in the future? No, of course not. That will never, ever happen again. Corruption and Abuse of Power has been eliminated. Tyranny is a thing of the past. Rejoice! All government, business and religious organizations are completely legitimate and they always look out for our best interests! America is Utopia! There will never be another repressive government in the modern era. Couldn't happen.

If the government wants to take x-ray pictures of everybody, is it reason enough for violent protest? No, it is for our safety. Does the government have a right to give grandma a full cavity search if she wants to fly in an airplane? Of course. The cameras next to the stoplights are for our safety. The government reads our emails for our safety. The government listens to our phone conversations for our safety. Security. Security. Shut up and do what you are told. There are privacy procedures in place. Trust us. Of course the machine is safe. This is for our safety. Keep moving please.

If the Fatherland wages illegal wars for the gain of government and corporate cronies, is violent rebellion justified? Of course not. If the government tortures in our name is it right then to rebel? No.

When our prisons are privatized, and people are imprisoned for profit, is it okay to speak up or do anything about it? NO! It is for our safety.

Is it ever bad enough to use violent action against the government? Of course not. No matter what laws are passed, no matter what the government decides is for our best interest, there is no excuse for rebellion or violence against our benevolent government. Citizens are like children who must be taken care of like children. Americans should not be rebellious. NO! The government is just trying to keep us safe. We should be willing to sacrifice all Liberty for the sake of Security. Then we deserve both. We should be willing to do anything we are asked for security. Security at all costs. Security. Security. Security. Safety.

What if our Founding Fathers acted rebellious? How uncivilized. Being rebellious is un-American. As we all know, the Founding Fathers, who were perfect in every way, did not rebel against England, but obeyed all of the King's laws to the letter, as we should obey the government, no matter what the government does.

No, unfair tax laws, cronyism, fascism, nepotism, a de facto caste system, corporate theft of our taxes, overseas slave labor, laws that favor outsourcing and overseas tax shelters, a media/news machine riddled with corporate/government shills is no excuse for fighting back. You will obey. Obedience is paramount.

WE HAVE OUR FREEDOM BECAUSE WE HAVE OUR CAPITALISM

Every type of capitalism is good. Capitalism is a game, and if you win, it is because of your capabilities and industrious nature. If you fail, it is because you are an unintelligent slacker. The playing field is completely level and fair. No one gets a head start. Everyone is born with the same exact amount of money and opportunities. All families are equally well-connected.

NO PUBLIC FUNDED HEALTH CARE FOR YOU!

Because Capitalism is always good, and Socialism is always bad, if they want to deny medicine to the sick for extra profit, So Be It! Capitalism is good! Socialism is bad. (Except the Military, that is Good Socialism. And the highway system, fire department and police department. That socialism is okay. These examples of PURE SOCIALISM help people and keep people safe. Medicine does not help people nor does it keep them safe. That logic is obvious. Medicine for the poor? An OUTRAGE!) It is the Will of God! This is a Christian Nation, based on Christianity! The last thing we want to do is be charitable. Christian Charity? Ridiculous! You can't afford health care because you don't work hard enough! God doesn't like you. You should pray harder! Ha! Be happy the rich have such good healthcare. Put on that smock and get back to your second job! (If you wanted healthcare, you should have planned ahead and plopped out of a rich lady's vagina instead of the one you plopped out of. Should have planned ahead!)

Only Congress (and their families), the Senate (and their families), Federal Workers (and their families), the Military (and their families) should get socialized medicine, paid for by taxpayers. Taxpayers should not get the same treatment. No. Taxpayers are not important enough. They just provide the tax money for socialized medicine for government workers. Get back to work.

WE DON'T NEED A BUNCH OF SMART-ALECKS RUNNING AROUND CAUSING TROUBLE. STUPID PEOPLE ARE EASY TO PACIFY AND EASY TO EXPLOIT.

When our schools are under-funded and they churn out illiterates who are unable to think critically, who are unable to study history, unable to read and understand a legal contract, unable to understand compound interest, who are unable to be anything except obedient workers, easily pacified with cheap beer, television and sports, could that be on purpose? Of course not. There is no way public schools are purposely kept from teaching children to their potential. What could be the threat of an educated populous that pays attention to their representatives and holds them responsible? A population of informed citizens that understand foreign and domestic policy? What's the worse that could happen?

And anyway, everyone has the same exact opportunity to send their children to private schools, where the elite are trained to lead the unwashed masses and keep them from harming themselves. All Americans have the opportunity to go to Yale or Harvard, where they can develop connections to the very rich and connected. We all have that opportunity, right? Everyone gets the same chances.

IN CONCLUSION: JUST SHUT UP AND PAY YOUR TAXES AND BUY THINGS!

You are not citizens. You are Taxpayers. You are Consumers. Do those things. Consume and pay taxes. That is all that is asked. Do not think critically. Do not examine your government's actions. It is for our safety. Security for the Homeland is paramount. All other considerations are unimportant. Liberty must make way for Security.

No, Americans should just bend over and take what is given them. Since the words "land of the free and home of the brave" are in that song they sing before sports events, it must be obvious to even a public-school educated person that this is the land of the free and the home of the brave. It's right there in the song, so it has to be true. Don't ask questions. Cooperate. Stay behind that line, take off your shoes, face the vehicle, hands behind your head. Fill out this form and keep your god-damn mouth shut. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave.
