Our founders told us that maintaining liberty and freedom was dependent upon the concern, knowledge, and participation of the citizens. In the
discussions leading up to the signing of the Constitution, a common answer to predictions that things will happen (things like removing our gun
rights, over taxation, over regulation...etc) was that the citizenry would never stand for it. Well an ignorant majority will evidently.
If you ask why we continue to elect people that get us into these messes the answer is: universal suffrage. We have to take a test to drive for
Christ’s sake but we'll have some one pick you up from the institution to take you to vote.
Socialism isn't sustainable nor is pure democracy. Our federal republic died with Lincoln, and has been in a slow spiral ever since... this is the
slippery slope that became cliched around the time Goldwater was trying to get people to see sense.
Bend over, my fellow citizens, grab both cheeks, and pull them apart... because it's coming.
The constitution is dead and the only recourse those of us who love and, more importantly, understand the concept of liberty and how it is impossible
in an environment where a govt has its hands in everything, will be to revolt or renounce citizenship and attempt to start over somewhere else.
It wouldn't surprise me that in less than a decade we're all wearing outfits colored based on our occupation or some other identifier and waiting in
line at the grocery store for bread and tp. You know like before the soviets stopped doing what we're starting to do and like the Chinese did when
they were poor before they began adopting our old capitalist philosophy... Where you go to the store not knowing what's available until you get in
and see the 3 items they have on the shelf.
