Has America lost the Plot?

This was one of the greatest countries in the world who now has growing joblessness, growing foreclosure rates and the violent treatment and arresting of peaceful protestors of the Occupy Movement. I have not seen one single protestor being violent so why this attitude towards them? Not only that, but with the National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA) the USA's people will have lost all control over their government and they can be picked up and locked up for no reason. The excuse used is "National Security", but the same excuse was used by many previous fascist police states, just before they came to a fall. If the USA is becoming a Police State do those in power not see this is leading nowhere?

In the Senate there seems to be a lack of integrity and/or ignorance with only people like Ron Paul seemingly having any idea what they are doing. The way Americans are being treated now only shows "The War on Terror" was lost on 11 September 2001. Terrorists cannot begin to be happier about the way Americans are treated. What will be the end to all this? I truely hope I am wrong, but if I am right I wish the American Public the best of luck for what is lying ahead. Things will probably get a lot worse before it gets better, but when it does get better I can guarantee you it will get a lot better. That is just the way life works.

I would like to see a real Superpower. One where people are important and money is not everything. One in which all people can believe in again, not just the filthy rich. I want to see people with jobs, houses and a real democracy, which they control. One that follows its own constitution to the letter. Where children can grow up with pride and hope. Not a perfect one as that does not exist, but at the very least one where people can engage in the pursuit of happiness and where most of those in government have some integrity. One day when we look back at the history of the USA what will we say about it? Did they lose the plot or did they as a people become happy and content? Only time will tell.

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." — Abraham Lincoln.

God bless us all.

I just can't figure it out why America always tries to show it's supreme power and authority.All knows what America has and it's capabilities so, why can't they solve these types of situations peacefully.

I think it is a lack of connection between people in the USA, Hotel

Thanks, Ingrid. :)
