As we don our red, white and blue, may we always remember what we declared independence from in the first place – and it wasn’t just British rule.
From the Declaration of Independence to the Constitution of the United States, everything was set up to ensure one thing; the Independence of the People of the United States.
This is why the Constitution was written as a limitation on government, not the people. Anyone who tells you otherwise is ignorant or is seeking to rule you. Don’t take my word for it, either. Read it. Often. Please. What makes our Constitution different from other nations is that our freedom isn’t granted by government. Our freedom is natural, we’re born with it, so when you hear some knucklehead talk about a “living, evolving, changing Constitution”, that’s the part they want to change, they’re just too lily-livered to say it. They want the government to be the grantor of rights and the arbiter of freedom. Once that happens, folks, you’re no longer free.
nouna person who settles a dispute or has ultimate authority in a matter.
As it is now, the arbiter of freedom is God. If you think your freedom is better off in the hands of a politician, you’re deeply mistaken. And likely nuts.
While our Country is, and its Founding was, far from perfect, there’s a reason we went from start-up to the most prosperous nation on earth in 200 years…. politicians have had their hands tied by a document.
It’s important to put politicians in their proper place in the food chain. What is the world’s oldest profession? Well, the second oldest is politician and that’s all you need to know.
