What is Happening to Our Freedoms

WHAT’S HAPPENING TO OUR FREEDOMS?

The USA is not a democracy, per se: it is a democratic-republic, but Historian Alexander Tytler's comment applies: "A democracy...can only exist until a majority of voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse out of the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits…” 

Those who do so are undermining our free-enterprise, individual-initiative system, which made America “The last best hope of humanity.”

Politicians who cater to such greed in order to achieve increased personal power must be thrown out of office, lest our freedoms be forever lost. Long ago Lord Acton said truly: “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely!”

Our Government, established with checks and balances by our wise Founding Fathers, has been undermined. Too many of the watchmen on our Nation’s walls have abandoned their responsibilities and surrendered our security to the “me first, gratification now” generation, bankrupting the future.

It’s time for a new generation of Heroes for Freedom! The hour is too late to go along with whatever comes along, just to get along.

The pen is mightier than the sword,” and we must not surrender our American heritage! It’s time for serious, non-violent resistance! Let truth, individual honesty, integrity, and strength of character rule our words and our actions! Are you willing to enlist in the Cause of restoring our Nation’s Founding Documents and principles?

Don't wait till the next election! Get involved now, to enlist candidates for the primaries who are dedicated to "a new birth of freedom...that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." Someone who was there witnessed that Abraham Lincoln's emphasis was on "the people," not the government!

Participate in the election process now, to whatever extent you are able, and don't by shy. Contact your neighbors, and alert them to become involved. It's their future, as well, that must concern us! All who value liberty must become pro-active, or be responsible by default for the Government's continued disdain for our cherished freedoms, purchased by the life-blood of so many patriots!

Contact your local, city, county, state, and national representatives. Call, write, and email them. Organize your thoughts on paper before phoning, and be courteous but firm, in order to be effective.

Let your concerns be known in logical sequence. Build a case against the wrongs that concern you, and stand your ground, like the Minute Men at the Concord Bridge! Like George Washington and his beleaguered men at Valley Forge. Like the brave men at Fort Mc Henry, and the sailors aboard the USS Constitution, “Old Ironsides,” against the Barbary Pirates!

Historian Tytler concluded his evaluation: “The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”

As of today, we have survived 33 years past the average. Let’s extend that “life expectancy” by abandoning “the Silent Majority,” and becoming “the Vocal Majority.” Speak up for Free Enterprise,  Fiscal Responsibility, and Individual Initiative at every opportunity.

It’s never too late to resist those who would rob us of our freedoms. If no opportunity presents itself, speak up and create one! Never give up, and never, never NEVER give in!
