I have said this before and will say this many more times in the future. When our founders formed our government, they knew they were forming the single biggest threat to the freedoms they had just won. They did everything they could to protect those rights. They formed a limited government, a divided government, said the Constitution was the king and the people in government were servants, servants to the people of the country.
Our founders were wise people. They understood that when people, because that is all government is, who had a taste of power or control would be uncontrollable more often than not. They had lived under that very scenario. They understood the only way future Americans would remain free would be if they were also skeptical of those in power or government.
When people are no longer skeptical but trust what is supposed to be a servant without question, the people will be losing or will have already lost their freedom. In about a weeks time the people of the United States have forfeited their constitutional right to freely and peaceable assemble. Individuals have forfeited their right to freely move about. Business owners have forfeited their right to run their business. What history has proven is that once a right is forfeited it is gone.
I saw a comment on Facebook that confirmed everything I have stated above. It was chilling. The young lady said, "People just do what the government tells you to do so we can move on." I fear this is the predominant belief. This young lady has just totally surrendered her sovereignty to the government and has begged every American to do the same.
Two weeks ago I would have said this is far fetched, it could never happen in the United States. Today I would say this scenario is not only possible but probable in the United States. That scenario would be the government telling us that the devastation of this virus is potentially the greatest crisis humanity could possibly face, which they have, therefore only we can save you and you must do exactly what we tell you. We believe this virus can not survive in hot weather, therefore we will bring trains with cattle cars, you must go to certain areas, voluntarily get into those cattle cars, you and your family and friends, and we will take you to this safe place in the middle of the desert.
Scenarios like this have happened throughout history. We self-righteously ask why would anybody be so gullible? The young lady on Facebook answered that question. She said that we should just do whatever government tells us to do. She believes, like Comrade Obama told those students, "government is your friend." That is the lie every aspiring dictator wants people to believe. Government will not usurp the sovereignty from the people, people will willingly abdicate their right to sovereignty, people will willing become servants, serfs, and slaves to a despotic government.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
