Keeping The Liberty Flame Afire

We are at a stage in our republic that requires the re-quantification of our liberties. Our government is taking pervasive measures to institute a societal system primarily dependent on a singular entity. The parameters of our liberties are being confined and re-defined by individuals who have a restrictive view of the Constitution. So who is to blame?

We, as Americans, have lost the derivation of liberty, as well as any comprehension of its most significant virtues. Politicians emit the name of liberty in exhaustive rhetoric without any benefit of conscious intellectual activity. Thus, they purvey a form of speciousness and fail to explicate a fundamental understanding of its principles. And we have allowed this to manifest. We have seeded and cultivated our own political indolence by removing ourselves from the engagement, collaterally, this has allowed the political machinations to take hold and remand our civil liberties to a state of impotence. This has to end.

It is time to respire the aether of liberty and reinvigorate our revolutionary spirit. We, a citizen collective, must wrest control of our destiny from a maleficent government bent on increasing its size, power, and influence. We cannot rely upon a quais-Deus Ex Machina from the current Party genesis whose sole reason for service is to palliate past crimes and those yet perpetrated.

"We in America do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate." Thomas Jefferson

"It will be found an unjust and unwise jealousy to deprive a man of his natural liberty upon the supposition he may abuse it."
George Washington

The human race can be a factious species, but the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness is a commonality we all share. We equally pursue to hold so dear its preservation because we understand that future generations should not be bound to a compact void of independence and expressive will. We cannot rely upon the government to guarantee it for us, any and all attempts have been perverted to supplant its own party ideology. Our government's sordid proclivities and hubris have mutated political representation. This is contrary to what the Founding Father's hoped and dreamed for in a Nation of the People, will we let slip the dogs of depravity on a republic that required blood and sacrifice to build?
