These very concerns bring up a couple of questions about government that have been discussed before but never with such urgency. Is the government too big? And is the government too expensive? And in answering those two questions, the scene is set for a third question. Do we Americans understand that government is the only entity in our social construct that by law can take anything we have?
That last question, in a nutshell, is the reason for writing my book. Thou Shall Not Take Our Land, with its cover shown above. The message is important because government is truly the only entity that can take what you have legally, which means that it can use force to do so. Some might call that the "legal authority to steal", but I'll leave that consideration to each as an individual matter. But any entity that has this level of authority, when and if it becomes run by individuals who want power, money, and the perks that come with it, repeatedly has been shown to take what it wants. Thou Shall Not Take Our Land shows what can happen with that line of thought in one very important area, private property rights.
In the story set in the future year of 2033, John Argyle and his elderly dad find out that their local government has basically given the "keys to the local store" to higher authority. As a result, they begin to investigate why and what the ramifications will be. Their findings are soul wrenching and they begin to organize local citizens into a band of patriotic brothers and sisters to defend their land. In so doing, they also find that the actions being taken against them are also happening elsewhere in the country. The danger is much more than a local happening, its a national travesty as well. Volume 1 takes us up to and including the initiation of both verbal and physical struggle and the opening of the door for New World Order entry into the fray.
Now I'm not trying to suggest that the story that unfolds is something that is going to happen. None of us know what the political climate will be in 2033 but I suspect, like all things political, that centralized control will be more advanced than it is today. And this means that not only now, but always, good citizens need to be alert to the dangers of big government and what it means to them and all of our God-given constitutional rights. And your property rights are ones that are already under stress today and that stress will continue to grow.
My book is, of course, written partially for entertainment for readers who enjoy political intrigue and action, but it is also written to give an example of why good citizens must always be alert, question government actions and demand accountability of all officials, elected and otherwise. If not, the very rights we take for granted, including those important private property rights, could be under direct and continuing assault, not just from local government, but state and federal government and even through their linkage to the New World Order. We must stay alert and maintain a constant vigil for our way of life absolutely depends on it.
Here's the link to the online Amazon Kindle book. A print copy will be coming soon and Volume 2 should be on it's way later in the year. I hope you'll pick it up, enjoy it and use it to help keep focus on the issue. It's not one that is likely to go away.
