With the dawning of a new decade, the American People need to reflect on our past greatness, and the restoration of that greatness in the future.
Thomas Jefferson once stated, “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance“. The political systems in Washington, the States, and our local governments, are infiltrated with those who would deny the people our country’s greatness and its Beacon of Liberty which has shone throughout the world since America’s founding.
Our country’s forefathers labored extensively to provide the people a government which would not be under the thumb of a central bureaucracy. Yet, since the turn of the 20th century, the elements of socialism, fascism, progressivism and Marxism have worked to undermine our own liberties and freedom, all the while having the nation concentrate on being the policeman, and caretaker of the world.
Our country has been stolen from us! The People are no longer in control of their government. Special interest lobbyists pad the pockets of hired gun politicians who were placed there by the dollars generated from purchases by the American people. You buy goods, the mega corporation makes its money and then uses it to find their ”Golden Boy” politician. They buy a seat in our “republican” government.
Senators used to be selected by their State’s Legislature before the 17th Amendment put them out on the auction block. The respective state’s legislative body would appoint their representatives to go to Washington D.C. and be its voice. After the 17th Amendment, they became another resource which could be supported and funded by the special interest groups and mega-corporations. Now corporate dollars can be funneled into the campaigns of those running for senator. They became the voice of the special interest agenda, not an advocate for the needs of the state or the people. These same politicians, once in the seat of power, lay out, propose, and vote for legislation which fits the agendas being paid for by their special interest financiers. The American people, who this so called “statesman” is supposed to represent, are ignored. Their cries falling on deaf ears, and their protests visually ignored as if the blind had looked upon them, even on the steps of the Capital in Washington DC.
It is given to us the right, the duty, to call to account those who would bind us in the chains of tyranny. We are to work to identify the individuals, special interests, and lobbyists who are pushing us to be subjugated under the power of an ever increasing central government.
Our call to action is to unite with those who would fight for the cause of Liberty and Freedom by aligning ourselves with people working to identify and remove the sickness which has corrupted our political system. Let us support statesmen who will represent the People and restore honor to the office. by electing those who would be willing to stand tall against corruption and paid influence. Those who could raise their right hand and swear an oath to uphold the U. S. Constitution and actually do it. Let us get representatives that actually work to fulfill their oath.
For Freedom and Liberty.
Vigilance demands that Thomas Jefferson’s words stay in our remembrance:
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
