All that typing was worth a star to me!
You are correct, of course. However, I feel that forums such as these serve a useful purpose nevertheless. Perhaps the ratio is 1000:1 that any of
us may see the contents of the thoughtful musings of clever minds and act upon them in such a manner as to make them relevant, politically,
ideologically, or even personally.
Perhaps it is true that not a soul among us embraces the intention of 'taking to the streets' with this message and scouring what remains of the
American community for the political will to exercise a revolution.
You may in fact be correct that we lack the cohesive singular purpose necessary to embark down a road less traveled.
I, however, do remain faithful in the American dream, the vision that emboldened a few men to create a living document which effectively removed them
from power, and rendered the totalitarian tendencies of leaders vulnerable to dissent. You see, I believe that was the
trick. They destroyed
their chances to rule this land, (as others seen intent to do.)
This document is our shield and our weapon. We MUST forever hold that the contents of that document is exactly
what it contents to be. No
politics, no ideology, no modality of social thought can escape its power to nullify any attempt by any government to seize control and render its own
people helpless. The logic of the founding fathers was inescapable, a great deal of thought when into its structure and form.
I think that many people, my self among them, don't know a great deal about every subject. I come here because, among the political noise, and
occasional awkward commercialism, I find adults asking adult questions about the actual nature of things. I can;t say that I agree with everyone, but
then, what would the point be in going somewhere where everything that is said is perfectly acceptable, and as it should be? I think that need is
mostly filled by those needing it, in church.
This is NO church. Here the truth can reach out, grab you by the throat, and slap you out of your slumber. Among those who visit us might be one, we
pray could be one, who will begin to envision the means to mobilize the good ideas we express. Is that person you? I am not ashamed to say it isn't
me. Nor should anyone. Some day, perhaps if we all should somehow meet, things may change. Or maybe the 'right' idea will finally coalesce in
someone's mind, as how to apply this American vision into reality once again.
It must happen. And I am certain it will. Humanity is programmed to be free. We cannot long endure the illusion of freedom. No plan to isolate and
enslave can succeed. Greed is sloppy, impatient, and arrogant; the proof is all around us.
Sorry..., I get carried away sometimes.
