25 Reasons to Ask Why? As We Enter 2013

Michael Snyder, Contributor

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?

    Totally agree…there could be more like sending troops around the world and making more enemies than friends plus making more problems for others too…

    Just one answer. Control.

    Perhaps another pertinent question might be
    Why are we the most disliked nation in the world?

    why does obama have a peace prize?

  5. Ussula Lutrova  January 2, 2013 at 7:14 am

    why are the politicians working so hard to destroy our constitution not getting impeached? including obama?

    in response to question about forcing christians to go against their faith to pay for the health care coverage of various birth control of their employees….why do they think their religious and moral beliefs are more precious, right, or important than the religious and moral beliefs or personal preferences of their employees who in almost all businesses will far outnumber the number of employers and CEOs working there?

    • Nienke Blaauw-Jenkinson  January 2, 2013 at 8:00 am

      Because it’s their business and they have a right to uphold their moral beliefs in their own business. They are not harming anyone by not giving out abortions-induced drugs.

    I have 2 questions to add after reading this: why does it matter what religion a person has that gets beheaded? Is that the only way Americans would get shocked?

    Why is education quality falling rapidly and being replaced with pop-culture garbage and corporate propaganda ?

    • Francesca Fiore  January 7, 2013 at 10:51 pm

      Agreed !

    Why is population control bad?

    • Anjanette  February 21, 2013 at 9:01 pm

      …because that means that they are going to find ways to kill us off! They aren’t trying to help control the future population, but to get rid of us living right now. That means that me, you, your family, and loved ones could be killed of for no reason at all except for being alive.
