America isn’t as free as it thinks it is

I don’t recall where I heard the above, nor to whom it’s attributed. I’ve wondered whether it was intended as a statement, or question. Whichever, whether as a statement of frustration with the president and his congress, or a question of the hope and determination to return the governance of US to we, the people, ’tis food for thought.

It is much more important to kill bad bills than to pass good ones.

—Calvin Coolidge

There’s a dispicible fad in Washington. Bad laws, really bad laws, are imposed — lots of bad laws that needed to be killed, not passed. Political Correcttness is Changing our American Exceptionalism into Dependent Servitude at an alarming rate. More problems, which they name “solutions” are created with each malignant bill they pass. Those people who populate the Elitist Seats in Washington confuse acknowledging a problem with the acknowledgement being its own solution. And contribute to diminishing liberty on an ugly, Orwellian Animal Farm played out against US, we the people.

Stated hundreds of years ago,yet, still, pertinent today:

If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.

—Jefferson


If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace…. May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

– Samuel Adams


The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite.

– Thomas Jefferson


Our legislators are not sufficiently apprized of the rightful limits of their power; that their true office is to declare and enforce only our natural rights and duties, and to take none of them from us.

– Thomas Jefferson, Letter to F. W. Gilmer, 1816


It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government.

– Thomas Paine (1737-1809)


There are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by the gradual and silent encroachment of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpation.

– James Madison


If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

II Chronicles 7:15

    Great Post, I am sincere about my comment . It is going to take a lot of us to wake the sleeping giant called American citizens. Only they can save this nation, and posts like this one just may get people to thinking, and off their butts and to the pols.
    Thanks

      Yes, it will take a lot of us to wake sleeping Americans, to stop thinking big government can solve individual problems. We’ll work towards that, together.
      I’m glad we’re on the same team.
      aloha!
