Since when is believing in the Constitution a bad thing? It is obvious that, if the officers consider a person who reveres the Constitution to be
"anti-law enforcement", then our country is seriously screwed up, and we are past the point of No Return.
I could not say it any better. I mean it is in the NAME!!! CONSTITUTIONalist. Holy crap these people are simply morons. And so much of the public
wonders why "conspiracy theorists" are saying the government is ramping up their policies and soon will be out to get everyone for the most part.
Things like this have to lead somewhere, and that place cannot be good. The increased "security," which comes only through sacrificing personal
liberties, is just not worth it in any case.
I mean holy hell, the founders of this country warned us of these same things. Remember what Benjamin Franklin said on this matter, almost like he was
speaking directly to us: "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty or safety." And the
government flags those as dangerous who stand behind these principals. When the government says they want people to act like Americans, they do not
really mean what they say.
What they mean is that they want citizens who never question authority in any manner whatsoever, and who give in to all requests from authority
figures with no questions asked. Even if authority was not fallible, this still would be a bad thing, but the reality is much worse than
that...Authority is wrong all the time, and it happens often that authority being wrong causes some innocent citizens to lose their lives. We read
about it all the time, and some witness it firsthand. This type of profiling of citizens cannot stand. How is someone flagged for being a real
American in America? For standing by the principals this country was founded on.
Our founders never said to obey the government at all costs. NO. They taught us that one is REQUIRED to throw off oppressive government that has
overstepped its bounds. And by their standards, which are the standards this country was founded on, the people should have revolted long ago. So many
actions perpetrated by the government are not only wrong, but unConstitutional. Laws that go against the most important document of our country, the
one that lists our principals and law of the land, should never be disregarded, by president, government, state troopers, or a county sheriff.
No one should be able to violate these laws without punishment, yet not only does it happen, when we rebel as a populace and say that these injustices
will not be tolerated, we are not good Americans pursuing liberty as we were taught by our founders, rather we are classified as dangerous
criminals...Someone to be watched with impunity, and have their rights neglected. This is UNAMERICAN, and just plain immoral. It is wrong.
The government is apparently not going to check itself, and as the years wane by it seems to get more and more corrupt. What are we, the people, left
to do? We have already disregarded our rights as Americans by neglecting the teachings and doctrine our country was founded upon, and no longer should
we put up with these injustices. It should not matter who is in office, or whether you lean towards one political party or the other....
Injustice is injustice, and we have reached the point where it is reigning down from the head of state throughout all of federal government, and it
will not change by simply ousting certain politicians. The system would work if it would only be obeyed. Yet unjust laws and bills get passed that
take away the rights of the citizenry, among many other horrible injustices perpetrated against us, and we suffer because the Constitution is
neglected and disregarded. Those in power choose to use it as leverage when it suits their agendas, and completely forget about it when something they
want to do goes against it. We all know this is the case, and none of us should stand for it anymore.
You ask what can we do. There actually is a solution. More than one to put matters bluntly. Our founding fathers advise that citizens in our situation
revolt against the government by taking to the streets and staging an armed insurrection. They say that this is justified because the government has
not kept its end of the bargain, which it surely has not. But I think this would be detrimental to our purpose. Without literally the majority of the
entire population behind such an act, it is sure to fail. What we need to do is as follows...We need not convince anyone of anything. We need only
open their eyes to the truth, which is readily available to anyone who chooses not to ignore it. Then, after enough people have awoken to the true
situation of this country, then we take to the streets en masse.
