12 Steps for Ashamed Americans (english)
12 Apr 2003
Modified: 13 Apr 2003
AA Meeting
Hello, my name is Tom. I’m an Ashamed American. I’m trying to recover.

12 Steps for Ashamed Americans

1. We admitted we were powerless over Oil--that our Lifestyle had become unmanageable.

2. Came to see that a Government, who thinks themselves greater than ourselves, is leading us to Fascism.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of Freedom as misunderstood by that Government.

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves and the Government.

5. Admitted to the World, to ourselves and to every other human being the exact nature of our Government’s wrongs.

6. Were entirely ready to remove all these Defects of Character.

7. Bravely asked One Another to remove Our Obstacles.

8. Made a list of all persons we talk to and e-mail, and became willing to make amends to their Information.

9. Made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others under the Bill of Rights.

10. Continued to take personal and Government inventory and, when we or They were wrong, promptly told it.

11. Sought through prayer and meditation, communication and action to improve our conscious contact with what we call Sacred, and with all those we understand as World, praying only for knowledge of the Earth’s will for us and the power to carry that out.

12. Having a spiritual Awakening as the result of these steps, we persevere to carry this Message to other should-be-ashamed Americans and their co-dependents, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Serenity – Courage – Wisdom

Addendum (english)

We think of ourselves as Libertarians.

We believe that the UN is the enemy and that America should be our only priority -- "America First"

We believe in conservative, isolationist politics like our mentor Pat Buchanan.

We love sites like antiwar.com and whatreallyhappened.com.

We don't want to tell you this part of our agenda because we know it will scare you silly.

That's why we hide our rhetoric behind seemingly liberal ideals -- we're sneaky that way.
Amen. (english)
