Look I wonder this myself, here's my HONEST answer.
America was created by Freemasons.
Not just American Freemasons but British Freemasons, why do you think we with 6 ships and a few thousand men beat the world's super
It's because George Washington and his 33 generals under him were ALL freemasons, and the same went for Britain, their comander over here was a Mason
Cornwallis was a Freemason, almost all officers of the British armed forces were Freemasons at the time.
And while they both fought for their countries, this didn't mean they didn't act as brothers in the taverns and such.
Which is why George Washington let Benedict Arnold go.
Now what's all this mean?
Well US being founded on Masonic principles, surely the change in freedoms is due to Unmasonic peoples lol.
You'll notice while not only our best times, all masonic presidents bettered the country, and bettered the freedoms.
With exceptions to FDR and Truman who were in times of great dispare.
However this seems pretty week, so I have a more strong theory that is much more realistic.
It is the natural course of things.
Democracy is not "born" it is learned and when you live in something you seldom learn it.
If you woke up and it was custom to do 5 jumping jacks every time, you'd seldom ask why it is that custom.
Same with democracy, we live in one, so we RARELY ask why it is a Democracy, and how we keep it.
So what naturally happens is people, even politicians, do not see how they harm democracy, because they want to see certain other things done.
What harms democracy?
But the Central Government is so beneficial many say.
It can give us universal health care, it can give us social security, and it can give us common defense and so on.
Well yes these are all good things, but I'm stalwartly against all of them.
I believe in the autonomy of State Militias.
I am willing to sacrifice Universal Health Care, and Social Security and all benefits that come from the central government, JUST to keep a free
Because of that so long as I live and so long as my children survive, there will be SOMEONE to fight against a police state lol.
However, many disagree with me even here.
They don't see that what keeps democracy is the SAME thing that has kept Freemasonry from being dominated by one man.
That is "Autonomy."
The US was founded on the idea of "State's Rights".
A concept from Masonry, where Grand Lodges are their own laws, and they don't have to listen to eachother.
They tried this exactly with the Articles of Confederation but it doesn't seem to carry over exactly as it does in Freemasonry.
So they had to add a small central government, with the ability to do several things.
Coin the money (of which no state can accept unless it is backed by gold or silver, today's money is unconstitutional).
Provide for the common defense.
And provide for the post office, and the roads there of.
These are the ONLY powers of the Central government when it comes to budget.
All other powers are first given to the states, if they wave the right then the central government can handle it.
The problem is after the Civil War the States became "nothings" and they waved their rights, and people put all their trust in the Central
Since then the country has been spiraling down hill.
I doubt very much that the US is losing freedoms for any reason other than "People today do not learn history, they do not educate themselves".
This I believe is a non-malicous event, I think it is just the normal course of things.
It's sad, and we can prevent it...but it's hard to go against nature.
But...it is man's destiny to go against nature so let's not give up HOPE!
