Thank you for asking.
I do not direct the following towards you personally. It is a shotgun blast effect meant more the general American, who needs to get their collective
heads out of their collective arses.
You know, that is the same old damn excuse I hear and read repeatedly.
I've come to a conclusion it is a copout, a phrase used by people who are either A truely "ignorant" and do not know better. Or B, used by those
too lazy or intentionally being "self ignorant" in order to rationalise for themselves a reason to not try.
I can show you a good place to start.
It's called the beginning, and only contains three documents, two of which are approximately a page each in length. Oh my god need toread...wtf
People spend more time refreshing the f'n pages on their stupid myspace than some thing beneficially constructive. Well, instead of refreshing the
same damn pages over again, and re-reading the shi t try spending the time reading two of the three
Charters of Freedom
which are composed of the "Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill
I only ask that people make an honest effort to read and try to understand/comprehend the first two. Because the Declaration, is the crawl phase of
understanding the awnser to the question you asked.
The US Constitution is the walk phase, if one can read the Declaration, and understand its meaning and context, then the Consitution will or should be
clearly understood as well.
The awnser is there, the power and means is there. The authority we have is there. It is not enough to mearly "know" of these charters as assume one
now what they mean. Because if you havn't then you can not.
Too mny people, especially these days, like to think "they know", when they have not a f'n clue. The Constitution is a living document yes, but the
meaning is not open to interpretation.
It was written with specific and clarified words with one meaning. It is not what ever any one wants it to be. The rights people like to toss around,
I have the right to to free speach blah blah blah...
Whent hey don't know what aspect of that freedom allows them to do so. People who have nothing nice to say about the military, need to be grabbed by
their throats and have their heads removed from their arses. Because that is where it is at, obviously these people need a hand it seeing the forest
for the frigging trees.
For 6 count them SIX years, I have been active on ATS, saying again and again and again year after year the same things. Answering the same questions
What do I see 99% of the time, lazy self imposed ignorance. From people useing every excuse they can, to not acceot responcibilty for their own
ignorance, It seems to me, that some of these fools, because that is what they are, fools, do not want to know the truth or accept it even though it
is right in their face.
So, how are we supposed to fix the mess we are in, by knowing what it is your fighting for, exactly with perfect clarity and not under an assumed
assumption of what one thinks some thing is.
The government isn't some form of supernatural creature, or a collective of untouchable people who rule by devine prividence, NO!
The government of the United States is made up of a body of people, ELECTED by voters. Yeah, we the people placed the idiots ruining our nation in the
seats they have abused.
Why do people bitch about some thing that they are ignorant of, if the elect is not doing what they were elected to do, guess what, we can tell them
they are done. It what OUR TAX MONEY pays them to do!
They are our elected representatives. Not appionted owners or slave masters, but it seems that way if you do not understand or comprehend what exactly
the Bill of Rights represents.
If we let them violate and abuse the trusted position we allowed then to take, and get away with the same, what are they do do but continue. They got
away with it, because people in general are IGNORANT of the Charters.
The federal government gets its authority from the people, we allow the fed to maintain it's authority. The states are the same, their power frm the
fed, and local authorites from our states.
Each state has it's own U.S. State Constitution
, how many know that?
How can people know better if they don't know the facts, ei are ignorant....
Lazyness, thats how. Self impossed ignorance...
So to sum up the statement of how, make the effort to know, defeat the ignorance of having not read, AND understood the meaning and context of the
Charters of Freedom
Because that, is what the United States really is about. Those words are the words that inspired the people to make a nation out of nothing.
We the people...
