America is in trouble on so many fronts that it is sometimes difficult to know where to begin. The forces of tyranny are increasing the pressure exponentially as they head toward their endgame of complete control over society. This has become most obvious with the directives of Homeland Security which, by its very name, has Orwell rolling in his grave.
History shows that governments will continue to push until there is push back. Americans did push back in a small way to demonstrate their disgust with airport groping and radiation, but have a long way to go to make their voices heard en masse. Just such an opportunity may have arisen with the most blatant demonstration of fascism in modern times: telescreens installed by a private company broadcasting government directives with orders to contact employees of said private company to initiate investigation. I can think of multiple reasons to boycott Wal-Mart which are associated with its horrendous disregard for the consequence of the slave goods it pushes, as well as the slave wages that it pays, including guiding their employees into Medicaid programs as their healthcare program. However, this latest abomination surpasses even those, as it puts the final nail in the coffin that will seal the Constitution well underground for the foreseeable future if it is not resisted.
America, unfortunately, is still defined by its consumerism . . . and the average American is still defined by their lack of discernment in what they purchase. Nothing represents the American consumer so well as the mega-corporation Wal-Mart. It is here, then, that the average American can display their power. If you don't care about slave labor in far-off lands working 'till they drop so that you can buy clothes and electronics at pennies on the real value; if you don't care about Wal-Mart's discrimination against women; if you don't care about slave wages and healthcare waivers, then at least care about the foundation of freedom itself.
It is no mystery why Homeland Security has chosen Wal-Mart as its testing ground for its 1984-style takeover of America and the Constitution: they know their agenda doesn't have much more time left to get installed before there is open rebellion. So, they have chosen America's largest employer and largest consumer goods store to set the precedent for what the average American will put up with.
We are better than this: call Wal-Mart and tell them that what they are doing is textbook fascism; they have no authority to do the bidding of government. We must understand that even if our votes no longer count in the left-right paradigm of nonsensical political discourse, we can still vote with our wallets. In an economy that is disintegrating further by the second, the consumer is still a sought-after commodity, so show your worth and vote NO to Wal-Mart and the DHS takeover of America.
There are many boycott sites which have been focused on Wal-Mart for years due to its multitude of abuses. A simple search of "Boycott Wal-Mart" will reveal a list. Please contact us with the sites you feel are most effective so that we can develop a list of resources.
