To my fellow Americans in Liberty, I say to you that these are trying times, we are bombarded with stimuli that intentionally cozen our concentration from what should be our primary concern; the dissolution of liberty and the sovereignty of the individual. Our government has lost all connectedness to the Constitution, and to explicate further, the current incarnation of our government is a flaccid representation of the idealism that embodies the Declaration of Independence. The government is nothing more than a parasite that feeds off the host, which is us, the people. This vial organism supplants our needs for their own and extracts vital nourishment, leaving us in a debilitating state of dependency and economic confinement via excessive taxation. Through aggressive legislation that is institutionalized under the guise of “governmental intercedence,” they intentionally effect restraint of liberty and therefore restrict any possible redress. The terrible thing is, we let them.
We live our lives day-to-day; going to work, going home, eating, engage in some form of entertainment, and then go to bed. We worry about our kids, paying the bills, and not losing our homes. All in all, it is called life. But in doing so we generate apathy and anesthetize ourselves to the bigger picture, and when, for a brief moment, we become coherent enough to fixate our attention to the matter at hand, we turn to derision. It is this divisiveness that our political handlers count on and permits them to enact whatever policy they see fit, all at our expense. When we dismiss logic and reason from being the precursor to sound judgment, what we have left is a viscerally tainted outcome that we wouldn't have otherwise selected. And our politicians know this. Remember these phrases, “Yes We Can,” and, “Hope and Change,” and “Change Can Happen?” People believed (and still do) these phrases and were sure that we would be better off. Well, how do you like the change so far?
A large number of people still perceive that our current government's actions are reasonable and will construct a better future, but are unaware of the collateral damage that will be done. Then there is another group of people who feel the same way as the aforementioned, but are aware of the damage that will occur and disregard it as a palatable consequence to doing business. Another sector of people are the individuals who disagree with the current direction our government is taking, but feel as though they lack the significant influence to change the end result. There are other examples but the main premise is that we all fit into one of these groups.
The Tea Parties are on April 15, 2009 all around the U.S., and we all know someone (besides ourselves) who is going. After the 15th what are we going to do then? Will we acquiesce, or will we surge forward and show our pseudo leaders who they work for? The date 2010 is not that far off and the politicians coming due for re-election will have to answer for their actions. Will you believe their spin or do the right thing and remove them?
