America Has Become a Prison: Life is 'doin time'

We are all just one mistake away from going to prison.  But what if we already made that mistake and didn't realize it.  What if instead of being stripped down and given a number as we are marched into our cell, we have actually been constructing the very prison we are now being housed in.  It is very cliched to say that live in a police state, but I think we have gone beyond this point.  The thought came to me as I pondered the sad state of race relations in the United States.  After so many years, you would think that we would live in perfect harmony.  This is obviously not the case.  In fact, we are all being driven from imposed segregation to self-imposed segregation.  And that is how I realized that our nation has become a prison.  If you have ever watched a prison movie or documentary, you see that prisoners all segregate themselves into racial groups, allegedly for protection.  Essentially, the prison is run by ethnically divided extremist groups, while the majority of prisoners sit back and try to not get hurt.
So what is the difference between inside and outside of prison.  The left has been hard at work forcing ethnic groups to cling to one another and not "melt" into America.  Each of these groups gets represented by various extremist group.  These groups, through their extremism, set the agenda for our nation, while the majority of Americans, or prisoners, allow it to happen.  From Gay activism to Black Panthers, from La Rassa to the Council on American Islamic Relations, and don't forget the old klan boys.  Each of these groups carve out a territory and enforce their rule through intimidation.  Instead of fighting against this, most Americcans just want to "do their time".  What a concept.  We have allowed the left to turn life into a sentence. 
It is easy to say we live in a prison because of the size and scope of our federal government and the limitations it places on our freedoms.  However, that can be considered subjective.  I think the greater evidence of our imprisonment is how we live our lives, as prisoners.  Don't you think it is time for a prison riot.

Interesting how minorities are blamed when they gather together. Like the majority of us would welcome them "just as they are" into our prison gangs.

Are you thinking that the majority of us would welcome gays into our churches? Are we really open to changing the cultures of our churches to be more appealing to Latin and Black cultures? Or are we comfortable with our own styles of music and preaching?

For sure some churches are integrated but the majority of our ethnic majority (IMO) is simply not interested in integrating their Sunday morning experience.. it would make them a bit too uncomfortable.. myself included. Here endeth the rant.

It's not about minorities, it is about the extremist that use their majority position to hold the rest of the population hostage. Welcoming people into a church is one thing, but allowing the church's principles to be over-run by the gay agenda is what I'm talking about. And it doesn't have to be gay, pick your poison, it is all the same. If your church is trying to instruct how to love your neighbor, but allows those that believe to the contrary to run the church, not just participate, that is where the line is crossed. And when I speak to the "rest" of the people, I'm referring to people of all race sand back grounds that don't buy into the extremist views. The majority of America is a tapestry of views and colors and is under represented.

Extremists holding the population hostage? I do not feel like a hostage. And I think I are one of the populace.

I thought your post was way 'out there' until I read the line: "Instead of fighting against this, most Americcans just want to 'do their time'. "

All the sudden I see the walls and I am wearing a uniform.

I think there could be a solution to some of these comments but it has a deep root. The problem is that all US Churches are under governmental control. Either their funds get taxed or they have to comply as a 508.
