The United States is a Battered Woman

I was reading this article today and it hit me, clear as day when I read this line:

"While President Obama’s campaign focuses on the fact that more aid to Israel has been provided by the United States under President Obama than ever " juxtaposed with this:

"Iran gets closer and closer to having nuclear bombs, the world tells Israel to wait, there’s still time.  I say, wait for what?  Wait until when?”  - Netanyahu  according to the Associated Press, last week, on September 11.

 "you know I love you, right?"    <---- I'll keep beating you but you know, you know baby right???? Only it's not a pair of earings being given as the gift of silence, just an appearance of financial aid. 

Most Americans don't realize that aid to foreign nations comes from Congress not the President. So when he makes these statements trying to seem as if he supports Israel, our only true ally in the Middle East, he is just the snake oil salesman, but I digress.

We are as a nation a battered woman.

"Sufferers may have low self-esteem, and are often led to believe that the abuse is their fault. Such persons may refuse to press charges against their abuser, or refuse all offers of help, perhaps even becoming aggressive or abusive to others who attempt to offer assistance."

 Statistically speaking 47% of the United States suffers from this syndrome in relation to our government and it's policies.  They buy into the belief that it is OUR fault we are hated, when in fact it is the policies of  appeasing our enemies by our government that have gotten us into the abusive situation we are currently in.  And to the 53% who do not buy into this sick way of living, the 47% call us names and attack their own neighbors for speaking truth to the situation rather than speaking up to the people putting them in the situation they are living.

Our nation is on serious life support. It's time to leave our abusers and live freely again!
