irony

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. This one speaks volumes. This nation was conceived in liberty, that with liberty we accepted responsibility for ourselves, our actions and the outcomes of our actions and decisions. We were declaring independence and yet today we have many who have fallen into a trap. Benjamin Franklin said, ” Neither a debtor or a lender be”. Yet we have a government that understands the danger of being dependant and still celebrates the number of lost souls who have given themselves over to their control.

There is something sinister about a government that tries to control the population and tries to paint it as charitable. They hide their desire for power in a facade of charity and caring. There is nothing charitable about stealing the fruits of one’s labor to enslave their neighbors. That is the irony of the welfare state. Benjamin Franklin was truly wise because he saw not only the danger but the immorality of government programs to “help” the poor. He said, “I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”

We live in a time where our government has broken free of the chains of the constitution meant to bind it. It has used deceit to take powers unto itself and deprive us of our liberty. 46 million people are dependent on the government for their ability to eat ensuring their ability to survive. They take over our healthcare system to control our access to medical care and not only our quality of life but who lives and who dies. If you think that statement is an exaggeration then think about the revelations about the VA System and how many veterans died needlessly because they were denied timely and adequate healthcare.

Then consider the extraordinary powers they have amassed in the name of national security at the price of our right to privacy. The illegal surveillance of the American people is tyranny spreading at the loss of the right to privacy in our persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures. The militarization of our police allows them to effectively occupy our cities, trample our liberties as we witnessed in Boston and the people cheered. No wonder the tyrants are so emboldened for we have lost sight of the value, and love of liberty which our founders held so dear. Again I must point to the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin who said those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

So when the government gains power and influence over our lives and how we live our liberties are diminished. It is time to embrace liberty and the 10th Amendment. We must understand that all powers not delegated to the federal government by the constitution, nor prohibited to it by the States, are reserved to the States respectively or to the people. We have to regain those powers that have been taken from us whether it be by legislation, regulation or adjudication. Any usurpation of our liberties and unalienable rights must be resisted for it is our duty to nullify and end the tyrannical powers that our government has imposed upon us.

It is time for the power to be returned to the people, the rightful rulers of this land and for this government to be cut down to its rightful size. Here I remind the American people what Franklin said when asked what type of government we had been given at the end of the Constitutional Convention replied, “A republic if you can keep it.” It seems that we are at a point in history where we will ultimately be called upon to answer this important question. Are we willing to ensure that liberty thrives and our republic survives? We are the generation on which the responsibility to save our republic has been thrust upon. The question is are we up to the challenge?
