Over the years one of my favorite parts of writing has been reading the comments from astute Americans. A few years ago one stated, “I’ve been reading your posts for a while now Jason. Normally they are filled with hope, positivity, dreams of the future. I’ve noticed your tone has change quite a bit.”
This was an excellent comment that has stayed with me because it caused me to pause and ask, is this true?
When one writes consistently it is easy to compare and contrast and as I have been publishing every Sunday for years I returned to prior columns to see if this comment had validity.
It didn’t take long to realize this wonderful reader was one hundred percent correct.
My tone had changed, seemingly overnight, from one of providing vision through historical and biological knowledge to a searing edge tearing through overwhelming corruption.
It was as though an alarm had gone off and I realized although knowledge of the past was still important, too many in the present had no interest in dead philosophers, deceased geniuses, or buried American Patriots.
The humans inside America had changed so dramatically that facts, logic, and truth no longer mattered.
Fast forward through a second Obama term, and the Trump Administration, and the situation has moved from dire to deadly.
We’ve been inundated with so much racketeering and treason, most living in America are so stunned, they shuffle around, six feet apart, willingly inhaling their own carbon dioxide.
Formerly respected politicians, military leaders, and appointed government officials are constantly being outed as corrupt and as a punishment are awarded book deals, television gigs, and no show government and private sectors payoffs known as “jobs”.
Criminal foreign nationals are being helped by judges, and elected officials, to flee law enforcement while American citizens and legal immigrants are murdered by these same criminals every day.
Paid gangs known as Antifa and Black Lives Matter are targeting, assaulting and looting communities, and killing law enforcement, while marching through the streets screaming “Pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon” and it’s the cops and citizens who go to jail/prison.
Recently a comment was made by another reader.
“The ONLY thing that will change this is a Civil War, but who will make the call, Jason Kraus?”
First, this is a valid question, as I’ve been discussing what must be done in America for a while, furthermore it is also implied that I Jason Kraus should make the call.
I will answer this in two parts and borrow the words from a supremely American mind, master gardener, and a completely trusted soul.
“That moment” right before the actual “combat” lasts forever. . .it seems to anyway. . .every soldier hoping something will change the inevitability of conflict. . .be patient and wait. . .you will be able to “hear the quiet” right before the first volley.”
It is my opinion that America is in pretty deep water right now due to stupid politicians, overwhelming debt, and the majority of the population either unwilling, or more appropriately, unable to survive without virtually all needs being met.
An electoral system that no one trusts, a banking and pension/Social Security scam that mathematically cannot even honor the actual greenbacks, let alone any value, of all the borrowed, leveraged, and ghost loans floating through the ether.
I doubt three quarters of the population would survive ninety days without electricity never mind dodging rounds, procuring clean water and scrounging for food.
The true and unbelievable statement is America cannot afford what is known as a Civil War.
We have to find another way. . .but can we?
Can we save economic systems that have and are currently gorging on debt, citizens who’ve for decades binged and continue to englut on food, alcohol, and drugs, or a society that no longer looks beyond their next meal, high, or masturbatory fantasy found on the web?
More importantly SHOULD WE?
Should we bother to save and serve the verminous ballast in our midst weighing us down, or should we simply throw it over the side and free ourselves to sail to the expected heights of those who understand when much is given much is expected?
It is time.
It is time to cut ties with those who seek only to serve themselves and suck from the overwrought and overburdened teat of American virtue.
Consternation nor proclamation is enough. The winds of fate are blowing in the direction of those who will raise the Stars and Stripes and then destroy any and all attempting to pull Her down.
Still, that “quiet” moment, so eloquently stated above, will indeed lead to a time of controlled chaos and incredible cleansing, and while we grit our teeth and clench our fists awaiting this moment, I will share the words of another American Hero.
An individual whose company I have enjoyed, and who has the peaceful countenance of a man who has stared down Hell and said not today Satan.
“It’s as though our country is drawing that final, deep breath, just before we check the hook on the static line, and take that last, safe step into the darkness. The fear is still there, but it’s been tamped down, because there’s a job to be done and others are relying on us.”
There’s a job to be done, and one way or another, it must be.
