A few years before his death, I asked my father if he ever regretted leaving England after WWII and emigrating to the United States of America. He told me that even with the troubles here (9-11, poor economic outlook, big and growing Federal Government) that he would never go back. When I ask him why, he simply said “I would never want to be a Subject again”. I have thought about this statement many times since then and as I have become more educated on our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the freedoms that our founding fathers fought for, I have come to the following conclusion. We are close to becoming subjects of a new emperor, and by our own actions as well.
Benjamin Franklin once told a lady when asked what kind of government the Constitutional Convention of 1787 had given us, “A republic if you can keep it” (Dr. James McHenry, Delegate of Maryland) was his reply. Have we kept it? I would argue that we may be very close to giving it away. People who are subjects are either born into it, or are a conquered people. Conquered by subjects of their ruler, and thus joining the ranks his conquering subjects. For decades we have been told that our military is “Making the world safe for democracy”, and yet what is democracy but mob rule, or a ‘mob-ocracy’? With our current government creating a society dependent on handouts, welfare, and subsidy are they not creating a class who cannot exist without those enable them to remain on the dole? With open borders, and promises of aid, and assistance to “all” whether citizen or not, the numbers of those who consume yet produce nothing are on the rise. With a President who has promised to address the immigration issues before summers end, and now decided to wait until after the elections, the deck continues to be more stacked in the favor of those who wish to push us further away from the fundamentals our country was founded upon. To push us further under the rule of he who would be king.
If the political party of dependency continues to grow, and elect more and more ‘representatives’ who will continue to take from the producers and give to the consumers, does this not create mob rule? If we are not allowed to confirm that those who are electing these people are even citizens, or we do not investigate election corruption when over 100% of voters show up to vote, are we not essentially surrendering in this conflict and becoming conquered peoples and joining the ranks of subjects?
I recognize that there are those Three Percenters, Oath Keepers, and Patriots among us who are willing to go into the breach once more to defend the Constitution, but I wonder at what cost. To take that step we would have to accept the fact that our highest court of the land has become so lost that they no longer hold the Constitution to be the highest law of the land. That interpretation is based upon their political views or their loyalties. We would have to believe that the people who had been elected have abandoned the Constitution and Bill of Rights completely, and that there is no other way to regain our liberty. Have we come to that point?
If so who will claim leadership of the fight to regain our liberties? Who would be the first to raise their fist and yell “Follow me!”? Who could rally people together for the cause of freedom? We often read about people who are ready to bug out, or who have moved to their isolated retreats because they see the clouds forming on the horizon. Patriots of the past didn’t hide and try to wait out the battle, but that doesn’t seem to be the case any longer. What if we all head for the hills to let the first wave pass, and then when we finally leave our arks, we find that any good and decent people are long gone, and all that is left is those who willingly surrendered themselves into slavery (FEMA Camps or worse)? What if we emerge to find out we need to learn a new national language because our debt was such that the creditors simply walked in and carved up the United States into small pieces to divide between them?
We recently learned that the elected leaders are within a hairs breadth of gutting the 1st Amendment with new legislation to make it easier for them to pass laws based on Mob-rule instead of using the republican form of government our founding fathers gave us. We have been fighting to keep our Second Amendment rights for so long, and if they now can eliminate the First Amendment then it will be much easier to eliminate the Second. What happened to the George Washington’s, the Thomas Paine’s, the Ronald Reagan’s of the world? Are they gone? Is the Great Experiment at an end? I don’t know, but I do miss America.
I could go on, but instead let me simply ask a question? “What do we do now, run for this hills, become conquered subjects of a new socialist state, or enter the breach?”
