The government is all we ever wanted. It is the big brother, big Sis, big mother and father. It is now the place where we look to buy a car, get a school loan, etc. It is as Thomas Jefferson once said: A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take everything you have.
It is big enough to take everything we have, because it is big enough to take from us the most important aspect of US, it has taken the individuality, the innovation, the creation of the American. It has turned us into nothing other than subjects of a popularly elected government. It has turned its principles on its head and made us into a bunch of government dependent fools. Is this who we are? Is this what makes us run?
There are those of us who would gladly be minutemen of the Second order, who would rally to the cause and put forth our lives to defend what is supposed to be ours by birthright. But, who would support our loss, our sacrifice, or would the rest simply wag their heads and say we did it the wrong way?
I have harped on this before, but we are already criminals to a criminal regime. Do you not understand? Did the NDAA not prove this? Did the total disregard of the Constitution during the recent White House usurpation of power by making recess appointments even when congress was NOT in recess not wake you up to the total disregard they have for the law? I beg of you to not just take all of this as another abuse, but the final abuse. It is the line crossed, because if the Constitution means nothing, then their power is derived from nothing. Theirs is simply a government by force, which is, by definition, a dictatorship, whoever is elected, whoever is willing to become traitors to the cause of liberty are criminals to our system of government. Being elected to a post wherein one pledges fidelity to the Constitution, who, by legal wrangling, eludes that obligation and obfuscates their intent is nothing but a traitor and should suffer the traditional fate of those who chose to defy their sworn oath. I don't give a rat's ass how they justify it, they are criminals in government and must be opposed in the most strenuous of terms.
Do I say this in a vacuum, where I expect my words to hold no weight? Do I expect to unleash the pent up hostility toward a government in massive violation of the entire purpose of our nation? Have we come so far and left so little behind that none of this means anything to our self-absorbed lives? Did the Romans not see their fate in every deviation from their founding? They did, they railed against it, but ultimately, they succumbed to it. Are we any better? NO, we are, if anything, worse.
The time for taking action is here, the time for doing more than talking has arrived. The Liberty Summit will soon reveal a place of congregation and soon we will make our stand against this tyranny, however soft it might seem to history, it is tyranny, it is criminal, it is a violation of law in the most fundamental form and all those who sit in government will be judged and the judgment will plague them through history.
