The US Identity Crisis

The federal government intends to pass trillion dollar fundamental changes without a vote, and the President is OK with that? What part of 'support and defend the constitution' is so hard to understand?

Meanwhile the census forms arrived yesterday asking me which variety of Hispanic I am... let's just say that there is a box around question number one for a reason... it is the only constitutionally required information... everything else is voluntary - and highly inappropriate, might I add...

And at the state level we have a government cutting ferries to improve schedule, going into a costly special session to balance the budget, and enacting laws prohibiting the movement of any livestock on the roads without a special permit (even if you buy them at the feed store, yes, you need to first obtain a special permit before you can drive 'em home).

This is NOT the land of the free...

This has become some horribly disfigured version of a national empire with absolute authoritarian control over her people...

What worth am I, therefore, if I don't walk straight up to Uncle Sam and remind him with smack in the face and a few head dunks in the barrel of cold water that he is more than he has become... that we all are more than we have allowed ourselves and our land to become... what worth are any of us if we do not see this identity crisis, this false America that has been built around us... like prison walls...

like prison walls...

  1. Since there are more than 200 times as many laws on the books now as there were in my grandparents' time, it's hard to look at any place in the U.S. and see "freedom". I do not fault the State of Alaska, although there are a few abuses there, too. It's primarily the General Government leviathan that has been allowed to extend its eager reach into our lives, our business, and our freedoms.

    Time to roll 'em back, I'm thinking.

  2. The power of the federal government must be circumscribed by the bounds of Constitutional authority as ORIGINALLY intended. Allow the day to day decisions regarding the lives of Americans to be controlled and managed by the States.
