It’s sad to think it but you just can’t help but wonder, does anybody care? We live in the land where liberty was fought for and won against the mightiest empire the world had yet seen. Against all odds, men of courage, principle and honor established a land where all men were viewed as equals under God. We were to live in a land where our fortunes and our destinies were ours to mold not to be controlled by a government or the whims of a monarch.
We were meant to live free pursuing happiness by embracing liberty and creating our own destiny. We were supposed to treasure and protect our inalienable rights to find the happiness that freedom from tyranny affords. Yet somewhere soon after the blood spilled and the sacrifices necessary were forgotten we lost sight of protecting our hard-won gains. The constitution we were told was in place to ensure it, and with that promise we let down our guard and the road to tyranny was paved.
Two hundred and forty-three years ago what is going on now in this country would’ve been viewed as intolerable. The insufferable laws, regulations and usurpations of our liberties to speak, travel freely, defend ourselves and most importantly enjoy a reasonable expectation of privacy are an abomination worth fighting over. We live in a world where our every movement, every action is monitored even in our homes. You can ignore it but you can’t deny it so where is the outrage?
Even innocents who have nothing to do with the immense accumulation of power or the patriots who oppose it are being injured, killed, or unjustly imprisoned on false charges easily manipulated by the abilities they have to control the internet and all connected devices. We live in a land where the illusion of freedom is that and nothing more. Where our collective individual rights are being destroyed & a police state growing in capability to unlawfully surveil our every movement expands their scope. Liberty is being trampled & the constitution hasn’t done anything to stop it or control it.
Unfortunately, Liberty is in peril and the only way to save it; is the American people must be willing to fight and if necessary, die for it. We can’t sit back and watch or ignore as people are attacked, intimidated, imprisoned and murdered without being emotionally compelled to act. Remember how we felt on September 12, 2001. We cherished our families, embraced our faith and were angered seeking justice and even vengeance against who we were led to believe were responsible.
Now I ask you if we were willing to go to war in Afghanistan to punish those, we were told were responsible, would you be willing to fight the government if it was, they who did it? If you knew that our government was murdering people and stealing your rights as they look to enslave you and your posterity what would you be willing to do? Would you look away and feign ignorance or apathy, or be driven to righteous indignation and be prepared to do whatever you could to ensure that liberty not only survives but burns brightly across the world?
No need to answer these questions as history will show if the American experiment of self-governance is sustainable or if tyranny wins out. Individually we will either do our part to regain our liberties and our inalienable rights or will not. History is written by the victors so there is no guarantee that this battle between good and evil will be accurately captured. When we all look in the mirror the truth will be there for us all to see for ourselves. Did I do what I could to ensure liberty for my family and country or fail to engage in the never-ending battle between good and evil or sit it out distracted by bread and circuses or cowardice and fear.
