Liberty: guard it or lose it

The Constitution, which sets forth the principle of rule of law, defines what is unconstitutional, and guarantees freedom of speech and other liberties of a Constitutional republic, and also describes the impeachment power. (How many know of the Jewish roots of this document?) Hypocrisy threatens Constitutional government. Could Israel use a constitution like this? More to the point: would a Convention of States save it, or destroy it? (Example: civil asset forfeiture violates the Constitution.) Quick fixes like Regulation Freedom Amendments weaken it. Furthermore: the Constitution provides for removing, and punishing, a judge who commits treason in his rulings. Furthermore, opponents who engage in lawfare against an elected President risk breaking the Constitution.

Please let us reason together for a few moments without respect to anything we may or may not be a member of, but just Americans who love to be free. I am very concerned that the Socialistic Liberals within our Federal Government are leading us down the path to the complete loss of all Individual Liberty in the United States of America. I literally cry in my observance of the death of our Constitution and the Liberty it provides for us. I do my utmost to understand why, the American people seemingly became so willing to just watch, and in many cases, embrace the death of their own Individual Liberty, their God given right to make their own decisions and be responsible for themselves.

Liberty is our greatest possession

The greatest possession we have is Liberty, the freedom to think and act for ourselves, to pursue our happiness in our own way, without the oppression and regulations of an all powerful, unlimited government. It has now become our most abused, neglected and ignored possession. The men who founded our nation, did so upon the belief that the government’s primary purpose was to protect and defend Individual Liberty so we could pursue our own happiness.

The actual founding was the establishment of a Federal government, limited in it’s power by a Constitution. After which, Benjamin Franklin stated, “We have given you a Republic, if YOU can keep it.”

The struggle between our government’s over reach of power and the citizens right to Individual Liberty has never stopped since. We have since allowed Individual Liberty to be sacrificed on the altar of government provision and entitlements, until the Liberty which our founders envisioned and gave us is barely recognizable. And through the leadership of Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Mark Pryor and others, we are on the precipice of losing what little Liberty we have left. A good example is the fact that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is nothing more than the remaining air of life being sucked from the lungs of Liberty, government forcing you to live the way it thinks you should.

What we are letting government do

We are allowing the government to force us into returning to a life of bondage. It has been stated, ” We are not losing our Liberty from one huge chop of an ax, but the slices of a thousand cuts of the sharp razor of Socialism.” Someone said, “Government has sliced away for generations at Liberty all under the guise of a paternal mentality of providing for the average citizen,”  Our government, under the leadership of President Obama, Harry Reid and Mark Pryor, is now promoting the notion, that it’s alright for people who will not work to just live off the backs of those who will.

I don’t know if we can restore our Constitutional Republic to it’s greatness, but we must try. You and I do the hiring and firing of those in our government. We now find ourselves in that Constitutional process with the elections only 8 days away. I plead to all freedom loving Americans who respect the Constitution and our Judeo-Christian heritage, to lay aside differences and issues that could be addressed at another time and present a united front to combat Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Mark Pryor, who ARE united in their efforts to fundamentally change America and place us all in bondage under the huge thumb of the Federal government. If we don’t, I have a great fear that WE will have failed to “keep it,” and it will be gone from our lives forever.

Stopping socialism is the most important issue before the American people in this election.
