They pitched me a lie in school
and on screen that we were
a great country based on our
president, government and
That was before I started
actually studying facts. Native
Americans were not a part
of the 1776 British experiment,
and usurping colonists usurped.
There is a great country the
farcical, violent, usurping USA
doth claim, beautiful lands,
all free to roam until
the Europeans came to conquer.
People-rule is always silly,
I mean who of us rules during
a hurricane, forest fire or
earthquake? No government
is valid if based on just humans!
Geocracy would serve better,
God, Earth and People-rule—
call it a merging of cultures
and ideas. The U.S. Constitution
is a dry, secular mess for the rich.
The Iroquois Confederacy finally
found paper and ink after years
of oral records, and the great
difference between it and the
British rebel one is Great Spirit—
or, if you will, Higher Power
recognition. Their meetings
asked for blessings from
Nature and Earth—from the Great
Creator called Great Spirit.
Humility is good, a slow-moving
fact above Mexico and below
Canada. Vikings and English
conquerors, inspired by Roman
lust for foreign land, plague us.

of years in Europe created quite

destructive weapons and forces
to kill other human beings.

cannot change the world, but
in telling the truth about it,
we make the good Dickensian,
Mrs. Chickian effort.
Imagine if Wyatt Earp let the
gangs run towns, or if a sober
writer let the descendants
of violent land theft call the USA
the greatest democracy in the world.
It is not, nor should it be.
There is a Higher Power in charge,
and that is still knowledge for
the wide path to grab while
the narrow hopes for heaven.
