We have come full circle and a have once again been reduced to the lowly status of a colony, whose sole raison d'etre is to serve it's imperialist master. Where we were once ruled from London our new bosses are now in Washington, different sides of the pond, same result.
In doing our masters bidding we are now involved in two wars,plus we have troops serving under American command in the West Bank aiding the Israeli's in their oppression of the Palestinians.
In serving our masters in Washington we are also allowing our resources and environment to be raped and pillaged, leaving a putrid legacy for our children,and just as with the Hudsons Bay Company we have ceded our sovereignty to our rulers business interests and are about to allow them to raid our treasury even further with the upcoming F35 swindle.
I don't know maybe we have never truly been an independent nation, perhaps we were merely permitted the illusion of independence. What I do know is that we are nearly 144 years old and it is about time that we displayed some courage and confidence and truly forged our own path in the world.
