25 Reasons to Ask "Why?" As We Enter 2013

Michael Snyder, Contributor
Activist Post

Why does it seem like America is getting crazier with each passing year?  It has become glaringly apparent that very deep corruption has taken root in our society from the lowest levels of society all the way up to the highest levels of society.  In fact, some of the worst behavior of all is being exhibited by those that are supposed to be “examples” for our young people – politicians, bankers, lawyers, CEOs, etc.

As we enter 2013, the American people are greedy, selfish, boastful, proud, arrogant, disrespectful, ungrateful, materialistic, unforgiving, without self-control and they are completely and totally addicted to entertainment. They believe that America will always be “the greatest nation on earth” just because of who we are, and they believe that the rest of the world should look up to us as a bright, shining example of everything that is good in the world.

Meanwhile, we lead the world in a large number of negative categories and our society is decaying right in front of our eyes.  It reminds me of what happened during the waning days of the Roman Empire.  The Romans just assumed that Rome would always be dominant forever, and they became extremely complacent and extraordinarily decadent.  We all know how that turned out, and at this point things are not looking good for America either.

So where do we go from here?

Well, it might help to ask ourselves a few questions as another year begins.

The following are 25 “why questions” for you to ponder as we enter 2013…

Why did the New York Times (the most read newspaper in the country) publish an article by a Georgetown University professor entitled “Let’s Give Up On The Constitution“?  What kind of message are they trying to send by publishing that trash?

Why is the U.S. government actively supporting and giving aid to Syrian rebels that are beheading Christians?  Just the other day, Syrian rebels beheaded one Christian man and fed his body to dogs.  The man that they killed had recently been married and was expecting his first child.

Why is the U.S. military sending troops to 35 different African nations in 2013?  Can we really afford to be the police of the world?

Why does California keep doing such stupid things?  On January 1st, more than 800 new laws (most of them ridiculous) go into effect in the state.

Why is so much U.S. real estate being bought up by China?  Chinese citizens purchased one out of every ten homes that were sold in the state of California in 2011.

Why is Texas Governor Rick Perry resurrecting the Trans-Texas Corridor project?  Does he honestly believe that nobody will notice?

Why is the mainstream media ignoring the fact that the percentage of Americans that are against a ban of handguns is at an all-time high?

Why is the mainstream media ignoring a recent theater shooting that was stopped by a man with a gun?

Why do celebrities that claim to be “anti-gun” constantly make movies that are absolutely brimming with gun violence?

Why is genetically-modified rice that has human genes in it being grown in Kansas?

Why is the Obama administration working so hard to “force Christians to act against their faith“?
Why was a surveillance drone hovering over the Vikings-Packers game at the Metrodome on Sunday?

Why did the U.S. government ask the Mexican government to help them increase participation in the U.S. food stamp program?

Why does the U.S. government have a website that teaches immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States?

If “terrorists” are the threat we are all supposed to be worried about, then why is the U.S. government spending gigantic mountains of money to watch and monitor Americans?  Today, the American people are the most surveilled people in the history of the world.  Why is this happening?  What will our society eventually look like if we keep going down this path?

Why is the mainstream media being so quiet about the giant sinkholes that are opening up all over the world?

Why have volcanic activity and earthquake activity along the Ring of Fire increased so dramatically as we approach 2013?

Why are Protestants losing political power so rapidly in America today?

Why does the Obama administration seem so determined to reduce the size of the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal?

Why don’t more Americans know about the population control agenda of the global elite?

Why are so many workers claiming Social Security disability?  Back in 1967, there were about 41 workers for every person on Social Security disability.  Today, there are only about 16 workers for every person on Social Security disability.

Why do 77,000 federal employees earn more money than the governors of their own states do?
Why does it cost American taxpayers more than a billion dollars to take care of the Obamas each year?

Why is Hillary Clinton the most admired woman in America?

Why is Barack Obama the most admired man in America?

Do you have any why questions to add to this list?

Trickle down immorality . . .

Plus people can see what is going on regardless of lack of info/verification. Where I live ALL small business is owned/operated by foreign born. These opportunities not available to citizens. As a renter I can have Chinese or Iraqi landlord rent to me for almost half of what citizen landlord needs to charge. What's up with that eh?

Re the SSDI? We have more disabled thanks to our current medical system and poison food/environ/shots/Rx, etc. How many patients are dumped into SSDI when they could be Dx'd, treated, and returned to work? In many cases it is cheaper for insurance company to dump patient into SSDI imho. Follow the big money - it works every time. Trying to survive on SSDI is hell - nobody would willingly choose it I am sure.

Whether we realize it or not, we all volunteered for the duality experiment on Earth. Certainly the kicker was the complete Satanic domination of the planet, for the past 200,000 years. Like, who could resist a ride like that? We came for the consciousness raising and even get to stay, if it worked. Well, the ride is about to quantum leap in both speed and major planet changing events. Buck up and no puking on the sharp corners.

Freedom and Balance


First they came for the jobs with global free trade. I didn't care because I still had a government job.

Then they came for the private sector, middle class money, sending even more jobs overseas to China and now even Viet Nam. But I didn't care, because I still had savings and a government pension.

Then they came for the Constitutionally legal assault weapons because some psychopath on powerful pharmaceuticals got access to one and maimed and murdered innocent people. But I didn't worry, because I don't have an assault rifle.

Then the day came when I woke up and found myself enslaved to a multi-layered, corporate , banker run global totalitarian government. I DID care, but by then none of the many slaves had any power whatsoever left to change anything.

Look at where this country has come from socially, economically and politically in the last 50 years in the name of both Liberalism and Conservatism. This country has had it's private sector, working middle class devastated by the globalist banksters and what many feel are their criminal puppet representatives in Congress.

Look at your statistics. Powerful pharma drugs cause how many deaths each year? What has Congress done about that? Alcohol in the hands of the wrong people causes how many deaths each year? Vehicles in the wrong hands cause how many deaths each year? The list goes on and on. Where's Congress when they're not taking bribes?

This is, in my opinion, a calculated reaction by the powers that be in the shadows that run the money, the media and continue to leave our borders practically wide open while they fleeced the taxpayers in this country for over $4 trillion in the name of a war on terror. The U.S. has become the bought and paid for United States of B*llsh*t Mountain, in my opinion.

Freedom and balance cannot be for sale and remain a virtuous applied philosophy in a capitalist society.

Stop and really look and analyze the lack of character of the characters of the global stage play that is now ensuing, courtesy of the global self chosen elite. Good or bad, right or wrong, it's always the collective effect of the people in a society that counts the most.

This is wrong. A small percentage of Americans display some of this behavior because they have been programmed to do so, but to characterize all citizens this way is simply absurd. Most of the items listed are being done by our government. The People are no longer represented by their government, they no longer support it, and should no longer be lumped into the same bin. This will become more apparent this year as people begin to wake up and exit from the matrix.

Just to really throw a spanner, consider this... Humans, if you subscribe to evolutionary theory, have evolved from blobs of green mush into the "stars" that we have today all in the space of a million years give or take.
Something that never gets talked about is what dinosaurs evolved into after 300million years? Chickens?
Dolphins were once land based and made the jump, why?
Some theorists postulate that our "royalty" is polluted with reptilian DNA... for what purpose? Control? Where's all that gold gone? Too Much?? Go Figure!
Wars are a convenient cover to dispose of alot of resources/cash and to take your eye off the ball... just sayin.

Time will certainly tell, going forward, whether the collective majority of presumed good people in America are not too programmed by the elite to realize the only logical way out of this massive global dilemma is to reach out and choose principled, struggling intellectuals as our representatives in government at every level - local, state and federal, without the secret fraternities and special groups of influences. Either the government works of, by and for the people or we're finished as a human race on this earth. The privitization barbarians are waiting at the gate to corral the people to be processed as they see fit. If our government does indeed completely fail.

All of these Whys are great questions. The answer to most is what the communists have done thru our schools... The distruction of our familes and values... Look who we send to DC the dumbest amungst us...

2300 years ago, the Greek philosopher Aristotle argued that the unjust cannot accomplish anything of a coordinated nature but their own ultimate destruction. In other words, cheaters don't prosper, they implode.

We don't have to pray for a miracle to overcome the corrupt psychopaths flushing our planet down the toilet- we just have to maintain our own character, values, and integrity while the hyenas eat each other once the easy pickins are gone.

Don't care for Obama much; but the less nuclear weapons we have - the better and if one objects to that, please have your head examined.

Psa 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. "Don't want to sound harsh but I personally think it sums it up. American is NOT a Christian country it just has Christians in it! "Wherefore by their fruits (the above you will know them). The rest of the world aint much better but founded by this faith they forsook it!

It's all deliberate, and carefully calibrated. But of course, you knew that already, right?

My educated guess is that it is all being orchestrated from occult groups based in and around London. It gets funnelled into the USA via the pseudo-'English' colony of Joo York City, and organizations like the CFR.

As the great man said, the "American Dream" is something you only see when you are asleep.

I hope that's maintaining our own character, values, and integrity is all we have to do. If it is required to step up and involve ourselves to put a stop to 'the cheaters' what values will guide us? What guidelines have we used to set our values? 'Zeitgeist the movie' a 2007 film by actor/director Peter Joseph reveals extraordinary truths.
