Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Lately, the phrase “Chose your neighbors wisely.” has become increasingly important. For years, the significance as to what the government was doing, or how the government was growing, was a distant thought in my mind because my life itself was so busy and all consuming. Like many people I guess I had the mindset that our government was meant to protect us, and deal with all the cumbersome issues pertaining to our country. I mean, honestly, how many of us sit there and read the bills and amendments and so on? How many of us even truly understand the Constitution and the Republic we live in dispite the fact we take it for granite daily?
I realize now, that most of us unknowingly sat idle, unaware, or preoccupied with our daily lives while the movement toward big government, economic downfall, and total government control grew out of proportion. Its members blind-sighted us as they began to dismantle our Constitution from right underneath our feet. Most recently, with the issue of gun control I have heard many people say, “I don’t like guns and I don’t own one anyway, so who cares?” Clearly, the lack of knowledge pertaining to our Constitution would lead to that mindset. It make sense to me why the liberal government controlled media, here in the U.S., chooses to portray people like Ron Paul as to far to the right, when in fact, he is one of a limited few who have a clear understanding of what is actually happening today in this United States of America. Now realize this is not an endorsement for any one person or party, but rather an a wake-up call which will hopefully spark something in all American’s so they do some research, question, and find answers, as opposed to being “told” what they want to hear from either side. It is truly a time in America to take the blinders off, and see for yourself what is going on with this government and our government in general for decades. Go out on a limb and see the movie 2016: Obama’s America. Learn about the author, read the Constitution, find out what all the talk is truly about, get involved in some way, most importantly teach your children.
I think for most American’s everything is black and white. Rarely to they visit the shades of gray that make the mind ponder and question, for if they did, it would lead them to research, learn about the issues, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as set forth by our forefathers. Rather, living in the black and white allows people to be led, misinformed, and it keeps them from visiting the elusive areas where the grays would eventually take them. That is precisely how we got where we are today, and why so many people are preoccupied with a sanctity they don’t even realize is disappearing before their very eyes.
The idea behind, “chose your neighbor wisely” was in an article I read recently. While reading and doing further research I suddenly felt the sense of urgency behind that statement, and I knew precisely what it meant. As our country proceeds in a direction of lost ideals and shattered fundamental beliefs, I have come to realized my own importance not just as a writer or journalist, but as Oath Keeper sworn to protect the country and our Constitution and all it stands for. We are all Watchmen in our right, but how many of you are seeing and truly understanding what the truth is, and are able to visulize the direction this Republic is moving? How many even realize we, the United States of America, is not a Democracy it is a REPUBLIC ? How many people believe the fears that exist are just Republican’s using scare tactics? How many Americans’ truly understand and see that the freedom they love, cherish, and take for granite is gradually disappearing while government grows and its power becomes all inclusive? The intrusiveness of our government, in our daily lives, represents the complete opposite of the Constitution of the United States of American as well as the freedoms you think you have.
Don’t you feel as though you owe it it your kids and your grand-kids to seek out and find the facts on your own? Isn’t it time to stop dismissing everything as some right wing radical ranting and raving, for lack of anything better to do? Ask yourself if you sincerely believe government should control what you think, what you eat, learn, and speak? Should they really be taking away rights set forth in the Constitution, but more importantly why are so actively pursuing these things in the first place? Keep in mind these people running our country were put there by us, they are the same as us, so why are they getting richer, more controlling, and invading the lives of American’s? Why is so important to them to create division in this country? Why? What would motivate them to do this? Why is government in education, banking, auto industry, or business anyway? What is the motivation of this administration to destroy our economy, but more importantly what happens when they succeed? Just trying to find answers to these questions, independent from the media, right, left, whom-ever will be an eye-opening experience — I guarantee it.
