We who call ourselves Freedom Loving Americans must understand what Freedom is and we must understand what American means. For two long we have allowed the left and the so-called moderate Republicans to control the narrative. This destructive element to freedom has convinced the public that they have taken the high road, when in fact they are today on the road to tyranny and perhaps have gone through the gates of tyranny.
Freedom is to be free of the constraints placed upon the individual by government. Our Declaration of Independence specifically stated that our rights and liberties come from our Creator and not man nor government. Our rights are inalienable or unable to be given away or to be taken from us. Our Constitution was ratified on the condition that these rights and liberties be more clearly defined so the Bill of Rights was added to be a part of the Constitution. After listing certain rights and liberties, the founders elected to add the 9th Amendment which states: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
To be American means to have the desire and ambition to be self-reliant and reject a large government, which is tyranny, that controls the lives and thoughts of the people. Thus, our Constitution was designed to protect the liberty and freedom of the people from the tyranny of government. In our Constitution, the powers the government received were given to government by we the people. These specific powers are listed in Article I and Section 8 of the United States Constitution.
These are examples of how government was viewed by the founders and how government should be viewed today if we are to be free.
‘Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.” Thomas Paine
“A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.” Thomas Jefferson
In today’s America, any of us who espouse these very principles upon which our nation was founded, are demonized and ostracized by the left and the so-called moderate Republicans. Because we strongly advocate for the freedom of an individual to pursue their dreams, we are called racist. And yet we do not specify that the individual be of a certain race, nationality, religion, or sex, but only that they be an individual. This is the very definition of non-racist. We do not assume that those who are like us or those who have different physical attributes from us are more or less capable because of their physical characteristics. We advocate they be allowed achieve or fail based on their individual talents and desires. We also respect the dreams of the individual, understanding that what is defined as success and achievement of a dream is unique to the individual and not necessarily unique because of their physical characteristics. We see only individuals, not groups.
We who believe in self-reliance as opposed to government reliance, which is a critical principle upon which our nation was founded, built, and critical to our uniqueness and greatness, are now condemned as being self-absorbed, selfish, heartless, and with no compassion. The truth is exactly the opposite. It is this principle of individualism that has proven to reduce poverty, reduce misery, reduce crime, and reduce chaos while it enhances opportunity, raises the standard of living, and increases happiness and individual, family, and societal stability.
The concept of collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressivism, - all virtually the same), that is being proclaimed by a definite anti-American faction in our nation, is today the moving force behind promoting the rejection of our founding principles and calling for the destruction of our American society. It is this collectivist faction that is creating disharmony, promoting a government controlled and dependent society, insisting on creating division based only on physical characteristics, fostering hatred, and promoting immorality and evil. But at the same time claiming they are the people promoting just the opposite. What in fact this collectivist movement is promoting is communism with all its failures and evil that has been responsible for the enslavement of billions and murder of millions, while bringing chaos, poverty, misery, crime, and indescribable hardships to the masses.
If we who are true Freedom Loving Americans, we who believe in and understand the greatness of our founding principles, are to reverse this evilness promulgated by this collectivist movement, we must become as resolved in our actions as we claim to be in our beliefs.
We can no longer adhere to political correctness by using the euphemisms demanded by the collectivists. Yes, they will demonize us, ostracize us, and try to minimize us when we insist on using accurate terms such as China Virus, illegal aliens, male, female, protest, riot, crime, education, indoctrination, propaganda, intimidation, and so many more. We must refute that people are less capable and need advantages simply because of physical characteristics. We must understand that government aid is the primary reason for the destruction of the family and the single biggest contributor to crime, while being a collectivist necessity of taking from one to give to another and building a government dependent populace. We must start to call murder and child sacrifice just that and not choice. We must call depravity and deviancy what they are and not diversity.
Most importantly, we must understand why we believe what we believe, understand the evil and destruction of collectivism, and then began to confront these evils directly and accurately. Equivocating, compromising, and shrinking because of the intimidating assault to which we will be subjugated, is the exact reason we are in the very position we find ourselves.
The anti-American movement, the collectivist movement, wants us to believe their effort to segregate, their effort to divide, their effort to bring chaos, and their effort to transform the United States is an inclusive movement that creates harmony and prosperity. This has been the same song sung by every collectivist movement, and we know the history. Do not be deceived, do not be intimidated, but be bold, be courageous, be an individual standing for individual liberty and freedom, be an American.
