No rational or reasonable person could argue that America is a less free nation today than it was ten years ago, 100 years ago, or at the time of our founding. Even our freedom to worship, our freedom of speech, and now our freedom of the press are all controlled by the government. How and why is this happening? To understand this we must understand who we were at the time of our founding and who we are today. Only then can we determine why and determine what we must do if we again want to be free.
The most important characteristic of America is freedom. The early Americans and Founders of our nation believed that their freedom came not from their position in society—most were commoners—or from any man, ruler, or government. Rather, it came from a Creator who endows all human beings, by virtue of their humanity, with natural rights including life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness. No man can take away these rights. These rights are irremovable or unalienable because they originate from God. Armed with this belief that their freedom was a gift from God—not a privilege that could be granted or taken away by a man—the early American patriots sought national independence over subjection to England. They committed their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to this cause. In this sense, America historically has been a God-loving nation. Though citizens are free to believe in or not believe in God, the American philosophy is based on the idea that God is the source of man’s rights and freedoms.
Today the people of America have been indoctrinated and inundated with propaganda to believe just the opposite of what our Founders believed. Our schools, our government, and even our churches are telling Americans that government is the source of freedom, it is government that endows people with life, liberty, property, and protects the pursuit of happiness. This is the same as removing faith in God and placing our faith in government or men. This is a demand by Marxism that all of man’s faith be in the state which is, under communism, the communist party. This is what the Democrat party in the United States is requiring of each American.
So long as Americans choose to follow the current path of placing their faith in government or man, we will continue to lose more and more freedom and become slaves to a state that demands total conformity to its dictates. If we are to once again become a free people we must understand, as did early Americans and the Founders of our nation, that our rights and liberties are endowed upon us by God and neither man nor government can take them from us.
The question as to whether a people is free or not is answered when we learn where they place their faith. That principle not only applies to our lives under a government but to each of our individual lives. It is faith in God that allows us to be free from the evils imposed on man by governments.
