you are not going to like this at all, but the reason you, I , and everyone else in America are loosing freedom, is because we as a whole are lazy.
Every one of us. You, me, them. We would rather sit here and type about how wrong we are being done, But we are not willing to march, or protest, or
go to Washington and Stand up. We would rather complain. Here on ATS there are roughly 12,000 members I think. Out of those, the overwhelming
majority know why you are mad at the government. Out there, in the world, most, I repeat, MOST people have no idea why you are mad. They don't even
know they lost rights. What are you going to do about it? I await your answer.
I'm not going to do anything about it. I think the people are getting exactly what they deserve. They do not understand the true price of freedom,
and so they will not get it. They have openly asked for everything we have. In their actions and usually bias over wanting to control another they
have themselves said it is ok for someone else to control them.
As it turns out, when you decide you want to choose for another person, say on things like gay marriage, or on the other "side" wanting to choose
how much another person should give to welfare etc or whatever, what you are actually saying is "It is ok for 1 person to decide and control another
person". Sure, they do it because they think they are getting what they want, but they have given that ok.
Who am I to stop them from getting what they deserve?
But don't tell me they are fighting for my freedoms, because they aren't. And don't ask me to agree with things as being right, because they
And if someday, the American public should happen to wake up and no longer say those things are ok, then great. Until then, they get what they
deserve. And that is not me being hateful, that is just the simple fact of the matter. Can't live in a society without theft if you are a
theif, your very presence makes it impossible. Can't live in a society that is free, if you yourself are not willing to give that freedom to
others, and you certainly can't live in a world without wars if you yourself cause and support wars.
All I can do is my part and not contribute to such things and point them out for what they are.
But again, if they are fighting for my freedom as is the claim, then prove it.
