When I awaken in the morning, feeling gratitude for my life and all the things I enjoy, as the day progresses it has become a habit of eventually feeling great concern, for my freedom, my Country and future of my grandchildren. As the day progresses I find myself frequently trying to figure out what’s wrong, and the root of our problems in “My Country tis of Thee.”
Today, it seems to have leaped at me, two words, “Democracy and Equality.” The idea and expressions of Equality seems to saturate so much of everyday news. It’s disguised in news reports, speeches, laws passed, riots, schools and churches. That underlying notion, Equality, must be an enforced idea. If I could sum up the underlying cause about the ditch this nation is in, the controlled economy, the sorry state of affairs in public Schools, dismantled military, saturation with illegals, release of prisoners, high taxes, exorbitant money alloted to entitlement programs, billions extracted to support public schools, neglect of our infra-structure, while sending money to other countries who hate us and on and on, and race riots, seemingly infinitum, the common thread in all of it is this intense notion of progressive liberals is to reduce this nation, once endowed with Freedom, to the shambles of “Equality.” It’s all designed to enforce “sameness.”
In the beginning of formation of this nation, the notion of our founding fathers was, design of a system different from aristocracy. And Oligarchy. That form of government in which the sovereign power resides in and is exercised by the whole body of free citizens, directly or indirectly through a system of representatives, distinguished from a monarchy.
A system that provided the greatest good for the greatest number known to civilization. And this country thrived for a number of years under capitalistic free-enterprise. That was yesteryear, and no more. Now we live under a system dictated by a centralized power in Washington, the yoke of socialism.
The depraved taste for “Equality,” a system which impels the weak, and unproductive, to lower the powerful producers to their level. It forces men and women to prefer equality by slavery to the inequality of freedom. Enforced by a despotic government, which is oppressive and restrictive, designed to bring the productive down to the level of the un-productive. Despotism, which allows just enough productivity to support the un-productive.This is the game plan now in effect, brought about to establish equality.
Democracy does not guarantee peace and plenty. The destruction of Freedom in this country puts the minority of producers at the mercy of the mob, and works at cross-purposes to effectively create and use human energy of the individual initiative.
Criticism is silenced, and prohibited, which has stripped this nation of ability to exercise Freedom, and it has become very unpopular to even talk about Freedom. Why is that? Because freedom is inequality and verbalizing freedom, works at cross-purposes with the aim and goal of equality.
The condition I describe is what happened in Greece, and we know from published news reports the sad state of affairs that country is in. It’s no longer, “beware of greeks bearing gifts.” Because they have no gifts to share, only a lesson in what happens when a country embraces the notion of equality, and accepts it in preference to Freedom, which is self-control and self responsibility by the individual who values ownership of property.
It was the Frenchman Frederic Bastiat who wrote “The Law,” who said: “and what is Liberty, whose very name makes the heart beat faster, and shakes the world? Is it not the union of all liberties – liberty of Conscience, of education, of association, of the press, of travel, of labor, of trade.”
It was Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr. who said, “A radical is one who speaks the truth.”
If you are an individual reading this and asking yourself, “What can I do?” you begin by recognizing and facing the reality of what has already happened in these United States. And the reality is, all you read and hear about now-a-days, in the courts, in Congress, in the Whitehouse, on the news on TV and newspapers, comes from a majority of the press, who promote the plan which has already transformed America, from a freedom loving, proud and productive citizenry to the abysmal mediocrity of equality in a socialistic system.
On a side note, a post on face-book this morning, a lady said she couldn’t vote for Donald Trump because it’s reported he in the past had given money to liberals. I responded it was his money, and not forced take-away from anyone else. It was an indictment of one’s choice to do with as they please with their property. It’s part of the pervasive notion, prevalent in this country, those who don’t have it have a right to decide what others do with their own property. That notion of Lyndon Johnson, to take from haves to give to have nots to promote equality in distribution of wealth.
A great book to read titled, “This Bread Is Mine” by Robert LeFevre. A man who understood freedom, and practiced its philosophy in his everyday life, then founded a college where he taught it.
Sadly, this nation has rejected the responsibility of freedom, in favor of support of acts and ideas that promote “equality.” Furthermore, we the people have voted in power, 535 Congressmen, and one President, who have led this country down the bridle path of “equality.” Shamelessly in defiance of Freedom.
LET FREEDOM RING
