Answer: Because it's all just a bunch of bullshit, that's why.
It has become the fact that the elected representatives of this country are not doing the job that they were selected for.

Paranoia has set in because the civilian government has failed.

This is where you are wrong. The elected representatives were selected and allowed to win office by those with the power to make it happen so that they could do EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

Nothing that is happening is an accident.

If you're not paranoid, you're simply not paying attention. Reread your above quoted statement until it sinks in:

The people keep electing politicians who promise A, but once they reach office, the politicians always deliver B. The people respond angrily by voting those politicians out and electing new politicians who promise A, but then deliver B. The people respond angrily again by voting those politicians out and electing new politicians who promise A, but then deliver B. Rinse and repeat as many times as you want and the same result keeps happening.

Do you honestly think this is just an accident, or do you think it's time to start getting a bit suspicious?

Do you honestly think this is thread to start this diatribe in? Start another thread. People can't even honor those that served without you turning it into a rant? If you're mad at the world, tell the world somewhere other than in this thread.

Don't look now, but you're ranting about a rant.

If you don't like the discussion or where it's going, too bad. Go get fucked.

feel free to derail the intent of the thread. I am not going to oblige.

You originally asked a potentially honest question and it was answered.

He knows if he started another thread he would be arguing with himself as no one who post in it.

I wasn't the one who derailed the thread, you did. You're the one who brought the politicians into it.

Here's your derailment again:

You started the derailment at #22. Apparently my answer on self interest did not satisfy you and you felt a need to take the thread in a different tangent.

My regret is that i took your troll bait initially

/edit changed the post number that was entered - tired eyes on phone at the time
#23 identified the derailment

I guess you can't read, because post #23 of the thread wasn't even submitted by me. No wonder you can't figure out the difference between a relevant point and a derailment.

Government education for the win!

Your intent was clear, to piss on veterans because you disagree with the government. It's really the intent of your existence here on the forums, turn every thread into a bitch fest about the government.

While I can find agreement in some of what you state regarding the government etc, your paranoid rant at all cost diatribes just expose you as the antisocial miserable fuck you are.

Good news is even those I disagree with on most issues and I, can join in the cause of telling you to go fuck yourself, you frankly have no real benefit to the society in which you belong.

The responses to this thread, or lack there of, say a lot about the sorry state of AT-PN.

To me, some negative responses are expected, but the lack of positive responses is telling.

I repeat my support to all those that have served, and are serving this country.

If you really want power, I am sure there are more conventional means to achieve it than to flounder haplessly on some Internet forum.

Thanks all you vets for your sacrifice and service to this country.

I have worked along sailors for over thirty years. Good people.

Ironically, working for a defense contractor, they have never given us Veterans Day off.

I took last Veterans day off and watched the Veterans Day parade in the town of Poulsbo, WA. I was real life, small town beautiful. I had to wipe away a couple tears.

Carry on bros and sisters.

Oh hey I was on the Bangor base not long ago, got into Poulsbo pretty often. Are you one of the contractors who works on the subs there, or are you over at the Bremerton base?
