After our founders, against all odds, won the War for Independence they set about forming a nation and a government. The nation was to be a nation built on the concept of Individualism where the rights of the individual is championed over the good of the collective and where all individuals had the freedom and liberty to reach for the stars. These were people who were true Dreamers.
The founders understood that government was necessary, but only in a limited capacity. The role of government was to provide safety from outside threats and to provide an atmosphere where all individuals could, indeed were encouraged, to pursue their happiness. Our nation would be a nation of individuals achieving, not government picking and choosing winners and losers and punishing those who achieved for the good of the collective.
When our founders formed our government, “THE FOUNDERS COMPLETELY UNDERSTOOD THAT THE GOVERNMENT THEY WERE FORMING WAS THE SINGLE BIGGEST THREAT TO THE FREEDOM THEY HAD JUST WON.” We know this because of what they told us and what they did.
Patrick Henry explained that the “CONSTITUTION WAS AN INSTRUMENT NOT FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO RESTRAIN THE PEOPLE BUT FOR THE PEOPLE TO RESTRAIN THE GOVERNMENT, LEST IT (THE GOVERNMENT) SHOULD COME TO DOMINATE OUR LIVES AND OUR INTERESTS.”
The founders purposefully set up our nation based on rule of law where the law would apply to all and the government had no control over the rights given to the people by the Creator, the government was to be a limited government, the government was to be a divided government where power was to be divested not only between the three federal branches but also between the states and the people, and the sovereign of our nation was to be the people and not the government; the government was to be the servant.
We have been witnessing the reversal of all the provisions the founders instituted to preserve freedom and liberty from the “SINGLE BIGGEST THREAT TO FREEDOM, THE GOVERNMENT.” We are no longer a nation of law but of government dictates through regulation, executive orders, and rulings of the courts that are unconstitutionally treated as and regarded as law. We are no longer a nation of limited government but have a huge government that is dictating the lives, interests, and even the thoughts of the people. We no longer have a nation with divided power, but power has been concentrated more and more in the Judicial Branch of our government, the branch that was intended to have the least power. The people are not sovereign but have become slaves and serfs to the government who is no longer a servant but a domineering and tyrannical sovereign.
This is the nation in which we live. Karl Marx told his followers that they must eliminate all prior principles in their quest to take a nation down the path to his desired classless society that is totally conforming, totally equal, that proclaims, “hope and change,” and that uses social justice as their excuse to bring about the tyrannical rule of the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat.” The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and many within the Republican Establishment have told and are telling the American public that the principles of the “Declaration of Independence,” “The Constitution of the United States,” and “The Bill of Rights” are no longer applicable to our society. They are telling the American people these principles of freedom and liberty are outdated and we live in times where it is critical that government dictates the lives and interests of the individual for the good of the collective.
Americans, this is the same “hope and change” that was promised to Russia by Lenin, to China by Mao, to Cuba by Castro, to Venezuela by Chavez, and to the United States by Roosevelt and Obama. Roosevelt and Obama both did everything within their power to destroy all long-standing principles of the United States that were instituted by our founders to protect the freedom they had just won from the single biggest threat to that freedom; government.
I listen to pundits, politicians, and Freedom Loving Americans, who advocate for freedom. I hear them as they unwittingly defend the arguments put forth by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and their useful idiots who proclaim as truth the insidious and memorized statements. These useful idiots, such as talking heads, professional athletes, actors, musicians, and “celebrities,” who when questioned have no idea what they just said other than it eliminates all the protections our founders instituted to protect their freedoms as well as ours.
This is frightening. We are on “The Road To Tyranny.” What is perhaps most frightening, is that those who claim to oppose this road, do not really understand it and are unwilling to take the time to truly understand it. Until those who prefer to live in a nation where a government does not dominate the lives and the interests of the people are willing to become fully engaged in the battle, we will lose our freedom. It is up to you fellow Freedom Loving Americans. Become fully engaged. To win any battle you must understand the enemy better than the enemy understands themselves. To win any battle you must understand when an attack is fabricated or real. So often I hear that the intent of the enemy is admirable and most of the enemy are really good people with only a few bad apples. Freedom Loving Americans, you must understand, those people want to take your freedom and lead us down "The Road To Tyranny."
Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and many within the Republican Establishment have as their goal to control your lives and your interests. To a Freedom Loving American this should not be tolerated. This is the very reason the founders fought the “War for Independence.” We are fighting the same war today. Do you have the same hard-core desire to be free our founders had? If you do not, you will not be free.
Educate yourselves in this war between Individualism and Collectivism. It is real. A good way to educate yourself is to read, “The Road To Tyranny, Individualism to Collectivism.” Another way is to do the same work and research that was done to write the book. Either way, please do fully understand this enemy. Your freedom depends on it.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
