If you decided to make a milkshake, would you put broccoli, spinach and turnips in your blender?

If you desire Freedom, why do you keep voting politions into power over your life, who pass laws and support political ideas contrary to the meaning of freedom? From all accounts, it appears the majority in this country favor the bondage of Socialism over Freedom. Why did this happen, when did this happen, who and what caused it? And more importantly, why has it become taboo to talk about Freedom? Can you un-invent a blunder in the blender? Is there some invisible Hall of Shame one signs on to when it becomes unpopular to discuss freedom?

As we listen to daily news reports of ongoing blunders by those in positions of power in political positions, which always involve tax-payer monies, one must stop and wonder what happened to a system of political government created by our founding fathers, that had at its very core, personal individual freedom.

Prior to this other governments were already there. The United States government was made by a group of men who fought a war to create it. And every year on the 4th of July we celebrate the event of Freedom.

Between this Mothers Day weekend and the 4th of July, just two months away, I urge my readers to consider Freedom. Between now and July 4th to read about our history, discuss Freedom with a friend or neighbor. Talk about it with your children. Decide to be informed about what’s happening in this country, and stop and ask yourself, what have you done to promote and embrace Freedom? Decide to be engaged in understanding it, and involved in doing something, like teaching your children about Freedom, and the formation of this Country.

In his inaugural address, President George Washington made two important points. He appealed to “that Almighty being who rules the universe” that “His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the Untied States a government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes.”

The second part was a fitting tribute from this nation to the rest of the world, when Washington said, “The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered, perhaps, as deeply, as finally staked on the experiments intrusted to the hands of the American people.”

The courage and vision of President George Washington, stating that the future of republicanism and Freedom depended upon this Nation, very untried in history, is true today. What is different today is we have not held up our end of the bargain of the legacy of Freedom we inherited. We have failed to assume the self-responsibility required to sustain freedom, and now living in a nanny State of entitlements and outlandish taxation.

The thirteenth Amendment of the Constitution states, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as punishment for crime, whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”

If the demands and requirements of “Obamacare” do not fit the definition of “involuntary Servitude” then I don’t know what does. Which is only one of many laws we have allowed greedy politicians to heap on top of us. To a point we have allowed and accepted the bondage of Socialism over Freedom. We have abandoned Freedom for the binding conditions imposed upon us via Socialism.

And unless we come to grips with this reality, from today leading up to the 4th of July, that day which celebrates freedom will be an empty shell of mockery, for that which this nation once fought and stood for. Consider making a declaration today to be informed, and active participation in contributing something meaningful to the Declaration of Independence this 4th of July. With an awakening of the people, the next two months until July fourth, those basic tenets Washington spoke of could be regained and re-claimed. Is it at least worth some serious consideration? It’s an “experiment entrusted in the hands of the American people.”
