Every individual who believes in the concept that each individual has the right to life, liberty, and property, is facing a vicious assault on the fundamental principle that made the Untied States a unique nation. Our Declaration of Independence correctly tells us that these natural rights are endowed or given to us by God. That means government has no right to control, limit, or abolish those rights of life, liberty, and property, or as Thomas Jefferson stated, the pursuit of happiness.
In the United States there is a transformation movement that claims the United States must transform from a nation that professes all are entitled to life, liberty, and property, and become a nation that transforms the role of government from merely being a protector of those rights for the individual, but that the government has complete and total control to limit or abolish those rights as it believes is best. This is saying that the United States must transform from an Individualist nation where the rights of the individual are protected, to a collectivist nation where the rights of the individual are subjugated to the demands of the collective or the state.
The transformation movement, a key plank in the Democrat Party platform, is proudly declaring that the United States must transform from a nation where people have freedoms and liberties protected by a constitution to a totalitarian state where the reigning sovereign dictates what if any rights or liberties an individual might have. This movement has been in place for many decades, but has gained strong momentum as our school system has been transformed from an education system to an indoctrination system, and our families are systematically being destroyed as the state insists that values taught to children are values proclaimed by the state and not the parents or the church.
When you ask yourself if the struggle is worth the effort, I would propose you are asking the wrong question. I would propose the question we must ask ourselves as Individualists and Freedom Loving Americans is can we do anything but give an unfaltering effort to retain natural rights as outlined in the Declaration of Independence and freedoms and liberties as defined in the Constitution and especially the Bill of Rights.
The opinion is not only my opinion, but more importantly is the same as that held by the Father of the Revolution, Samuel Adams. Samuel Adams told us:
“The truth is, all might be free if they valued freedom, and defended it as they ought.” The Democrat party is telling people there is no value in freedom. It is our job to be about “Setting Brushfires of Freedom.”
“The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.” The Democrat Party is the "false and designing men wresting from us our freedoms and liberties." We were charged that we must always be about “Setting Brushfires of Freedom.”
Please declare openly and proudly that you will, along with Samuel Adams and me, be about always “Setting Brushfires of Freedom.” Do it unceasingly.
