"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them." - Thomas Jefferson
The United States of America has hit an iceberg, and she is quickly taking on water. Our government has run this ship to her demise.
With a 9% approval rating, an economy in the tank, a lame duck president at the helm, Freedom and Liberty have been the first casualties of this New Union... and now the very people whom we so carelessly elected into office have begun sealing the coffin of the greatest experiment in the history of man.
The treasury is being plundered to the thunderous applause of the masses. The burden to bail-out the vain and covetous leeches of our society is being placed on our own pocketbooks... We are being given marching orders by a government that won the vote, but represents no more than 1/4 of the population respectively - that marching order is "On to the Gallows!" - for in this day we are seeing the death of the last best hope in the world.
If George Bush and the Republicans in Congress are no more willing to stop the Socialist Dictum in the United States, then perhaps we deserve a President Obama - who makes no attempt to disguise his vision for the socialisation of the United States. In fact, the afore mentioned parties are PUSHING the dictum!
Thomas Jefferson, the man who explained that the Tree of Liberty requires nutrients in the form of blood (from tyrants and patriots), also prognosticated that happiness in our society was directly linked to the separation of the people from government meddling! President Reagan understood this: "The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
However, today we find ourselves at a crossroads in this great experiment.
Two branches of the US government are in gross violation of the Contract with America - The US Constitution. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court will likely be unable (or unwilling) to rule as such before the checks are handed out... checks from a treasury that is already absolutely void of funds.
See the fire on the horizon... smell the smoke... it is not the blaze in California - it is the Federal Reserve printing out monopoly money adorned with the faces of dead presidents.
Somehow in America we have lost the ability to do what is right over what is expedient or easy. We have lost the resolve to push through the hardships of our own misfortunes, in favor of wallowing at the robes of the powerful, begging for mercy. And mercy they shall deliver - for it is the vote of the pitiful that is keeping them in power. Promises of deliverance, handouts, freedom from their poor choices guarantees their vote - quid pro quo.
Little do these blind beggars realize that they steal from the left hand to satisfy the right... they are undoing their own great society, and ensuring the slavery of their children and grandchildren...
Am I being melodramatic - or am I being real? Are these words hard to read? Why - because they are true?
Free healthcare - free education - free housing - free soup?
When the government became an entity feared by the people, the society was lost... now it is an entity separate from the people (less a short voting season which makes no promise of actual change or restoration of liberty). When the government separates itself from the people, and works towards it's own ends - it is in violation of contract and stands to be recalled.
I can no longer pledge allegiance to a flag that represents the rape of my liberty, of my labors, of my life! I now make it my effort to remove any individual from office who supports socialist legislation such as the housing bail-out. I refuse to support a union of socialist republics - empowered by the slothfully covetous and vain masses undulating for that orgasm of government expediency in funding their ill-gotten goods.
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the original intent of this nation, and to the individual liberty endowed upon us, for which IT stands, representing a nation free from tyranny, a people banded together against such, under Nature's God, indivisible, ensuring the continued struggle for liberty and true justice under the rule of natural law, for all.
