No offense was taken, personally. I responded only to a reflection on your utter and total disregard to the lives lost that built this nation,
continue to support this nation, and the complete disrespect to the fundamental principles that the United States of America was built on.
What reasons are needed beyond what the Founding Fathers provided? I do believe that the Founding Fathers provided our futures with "unalienable"
rights, liberties, and freedoms... did they not? Did our Founding Fathers not provide for "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"? Did our
Founding Fathers not pay for the right to claim these with the shedding of blood?
I did in fact label you as ignorant due to your "Founding Fathers argument" questionnaire. What the hell formed this nation? What built this
nation? What has this nation lived by, for, and with for 231 years? Pure luck? I don't hardly think so. This nation has lived by, for, and with
the blood, sweat, and tears of millions that whole heartedly follow the structural foundation of the Founding Fathers.
Again, ignorance pays it's toll. Technologies have nothing to do with the provided freedoms, rights, and liberties, in the sense of limiting them.
The items you apparently wish to argue about are privileges, meaning, you don't have
to partake in them. The freedoms, rights, and liberties
that our Founding Fathers died to provide us with, meant that under no circumstance could they (those rights, liberties, and freedoms) be taken away,
regardless of any technological advancement.
The Founding Fathers did address the issues of any technological advancement, since you wish to stand by this argument. The Founding Fathers did so
by limiting the powers of the Government.
The United States of America, as you eloquently, and correctly put it, does not resemble what it was intended to be. They, the Founding Fathers, and
anyone else that chooses to uphold the foundation of America, didn't happen to put in provisions for the American citizens to be held accountable
against apathy and laziness. Unfortunately, they gave the provisions to be free to be apathetic and lethargic.
I am definitely not afraid of something new. What I am disgusted with is the formation of a panel that feels they are free to dismantle the
foundation of the United States of America... referencing the SPP
, the information provided in the
letters that I've written to Congress
, and the
petition I've created
(pointing to the obstruction of the Constitution)... the steps
being taken, that people like you seem to take with a grain of salt, are in fact unconstitutional, and in fact treasonous. Read Article 1, section 10
of the U.S. Constitution. Here, I'll provide it for you.
Article 1 Section 10. No state shall enter into any treaty, alliance, or confederation; grant letters of marque and reprisal; coin money; emit
bills of credit; make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts; pass any bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law impairing
the obligation of contracts, or grant any title of nobility.
What does "giving up being an American" mean? With the formation of the North American Union, do you think you'll still be an American? If so,
then you really are more ignorant that I gave you credit for. Upon the formation of the N.A.U., the United States of America will be rendered null
and void, right along with our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Check into it.
How will our day to day lives change? Take away every single right, liberty, and freedom that you, I, and any other American citizen share, and you
tell me exactly how your day to day life will not change.
The United States of America is no better than any other nation, nor individual, across the globe. Hence, the U.S.A. was built under the guise that
"All Men Were Created Equal" (men/women). It's not about "one patriots indignation at change", it's about the death of America... something
that I, and millions across the nation will not stand idly by and allow to happen.
Who cares how much electricity, oil, and fresh water Canada contains. Do you think the United States of America is not self sufficient? Do you think
the U.S. couldn't be self sufficient?
With the right, privilege, and freedom to partake in the technological advancements set forth by the Founding Fathers, with tight Governmental
control... I do not for one second believe I would ever sit in the dark with nothing to drink.
Again, I will ask of you...
