Dear Editor,

I have been alive for more than 53 years. I have seen The Vietnam War, the first war against Iraq, the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and a few “police actions” like what the movie Blackhawk Down was based on.

Even though I have never served in The U.S. Armed Forces, I don’t see myself, or any others that are against these wars, as being unpatriotic to the U.S. flag, the U.S. Constitution, nor the U.S. as a whole country. The U.S. Constitution guarantees The Right of Freedom of Speech, but I have seen more negative police clam-downs on public demonstrations in this country than all of the other countries’ citizens combined!

These real-time views make me wonder, “Does the current administration and the “ultra-conservative congress” even believe in The U.S. Constitution any more? The president, the Cabinet members and the U.S. Congress seem to be ignoring the U.S. Constitution when they allow, and probably agree with the police, to break up The Occupy movement demonstrators that are trying their absolute best to make ALL of U.S. to understand the REAL problems that we face as a GLOBAL COMMUNITY!!

If the OCCUPY MOVEMENT, and the overwhelming majority of the U.S. citizens, are not successful in getting our honest and important message across to the government and the large minority of the U.S. citizens, I truly believe that the teachings and the warnings of The Book of Revelations, in The Holy Bible, will come true!!

I, for one Christian, one of this world’s citizens, view The Book of Revelations as a guide and a warning to a possible ending of humanity, NOT AS WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF WE, AS A HUMANITY, DO NOT CHANGE!!
