#3 Since you ask, I spend every working day of my adult life risking same to protect people from harm, as well as teaching my children about the virtues of truth and unconditional love, guiding them through the pitfalls of greed for money and power in these corrupt times. I also read, learn, and digest ways to better the world around me, through acts of kindness, expecting nothing in return. Yes it is easy to point the finger at those who are ruining our planet for their own ends, but when they do so in such an unashamed fashion and have unenlightened people jumping to their defence, standing by and allowing them to continue becomes difficult.

Currently we are producing enough food to feed every single one of us at the planet.. and still someones creed is causing that the food is going to waste and people are starving.

We need to wake up, end all wars and demand change and justice!

If there is one thing this video lacks,its clarity. It seems to bounce back and forth from socialist to democracy, but never lands on a democratic republic.I can only assume by the Hitler stash that it is meant to be socialist. Mostly platitudes that don't take into account aggressors.And machines and progress have not left us in want, oppressions is the only cause of want and long term suffering.The choice of presidents ending with obuma seals it as socialist so sorry but you can keep this. Read the constitution,Now there is a great speech !!!

People of SnotR! Let us stand close. Let us unite! Let us entertain one another with funny and awesome videos, so that we can, for a brief moment, forget about our troubles and worries!

This was a major eye opener. God damn....

This speech was originally aimed at the Facist Nazi regime but still has meaning today.

its all true.. but its like NWO propaganda.. - they, people behind the scene, keep us walking towards the edge, create our reality, poison our fod and water, our air.., make their puppets presidents and bankers, make a farce out of democracy,.., making wars for oil or whatever else.. and when we will be desperate enough then they will call for revolution - and as a answer there will be terror for your own "safety", your own "good".. and total global power - one government, one country.. 7bln slaves.. NWO.
