We Americans and peoples of the so-called free world are at a turning point today. We must once and for all make the decision of whether or not we want to be truly free in both senses of the word as described and, if we choose freedom, we must stand for it and demand it and never yield in our quest. Whether you are a believer or not, the Bible sets a standard that, if followed, allows humans to live together at peace and in harmony. Why do you think God gave Moses the Ten Commandments? They are great rules for all of us to live by and when we don't, hate, envy and chaos ensues. And while I always hear the argument that nowhere in the Constitution does it say God, that is implicit in the Bill of Rights which spells out in detail what was meant by the use of the words inalienable rights from God spelled out in the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration was our founding document, telling the world that we were breaking the yoke of freedom which ultimately led to the addition of the Bill of Rights to the base document. And the original work of the Constitution had to add them for the former Colonies to formally commit to the Constitution. Don't believe that? Well, read the famous speech by Patrick Henry, the two Thanksgiving proclamations by our first President and it becomes clear the link between God and the way our government was created and what it was meant to protect.
Sadly, today we have so many weak politicians who, once elected to office, turn their backs on the people and work for their own advancement, whatever the cost. They always look for the easiest answer to problems, often not the problem itself, so that problem continues to grow and they respond with more laws that don't address the base problem. That was never intended, but it has happened because we, the people have become disconnected and no longer understand history, thanks to both the scourge known as political correctness, the erroneous definition of the relationship between church and state and our own societal lack of history and government schooling. As the Frenchman deTocqueville said in his work, America, so many years ago, when Americans no longer stay informed and decide to see what they can get out of government instead of demanding the government promote independence and freedom instead of amassing power, the torch of freedom will extinguish itself, And that's what I mean by we are at a tipping point and so is the world, for when America no longer sets the example and leads the way, it is over. And when it is over and the chains of tyranny are finally recognized, it is too late.
I don't know about you, my friends, but I believe tyranny means a slow death and I'm not willing to accept that. What say you?
