A New America

I propose that radical changes need to be made to this country.

We live in a society where;

  • The rich have bought the government.  
  • The elected have created a ruling class.  
  • The natural resources are locked up in ownership and inaccessible to the rest of the people.  
  • The "common man" is no longer able to work for themselves and make a living due to excessive and unnecessary government regulation at the behest of the rich.
  • A "serf" class is being established that believes it needs to be protected from themselves and basic needs provided for.
  • The election process has been corrupted by the "two party" system.
  • The mass media has been co-opted by the rich and ruling classes and serves to manipulate the public with mis-information and with-holding facts.
  • The government itself is committing crimes that violate it's own laws, the laws of other countries and the Constitution itself with no consequences.
  • The rich and ruling classes have been working to limit the abilities of the people at large to defend themselves by denying access to the same weapons that will be used against them when, not if, the government turns on the people.
You cannot legislate morality.  You cannot protect people from themselves.  The very attempt to do so is deny them their most basic right recognized by the U.S. Constitution.  That being the God given right of free will.  Each person MUST be able to live their own life as they see fit.

This includes being able to do what they choose to make a living for themselves.  To be able to hunt, gather and farm responsibly.  The ability to barter and trade among each other fairly as they see fit to meet their needs and wants for themselves and their families.

These conditions are being denied to citizens of the U.S. in these times and the people who are being hurt the most by it are being mis-educated and distracted from realizing it.

Tensions are rising and conflict is growing.  There is talk of impending civil war more and more. 

My fellow citizens of the U.S.A., it is almost too late now.  The time to fight for freedom is not on another country's land but right here at home.  Will you be divided and conquered or will you rise as one free people to set things right before the need for violence arrives?

It was lost a long time ago

From the very first time the government stepped in to do something in the name of protecting us from ourselves, Liberty was lost.

For every time someone proclaims a new law is necessary, even if it only saves one, Liberty is lost.

Every time a new executive order or regulation is put into effect to protect our "interests", Liberty is lost.

Every time one branch of the government wants to do something without input from the other branches, Liberty is lost.

Every time an elected representative proclaims him or herself as a "leader" of this country, Liberty is lost.

Every time a person who is eligible to vote does not, Liberty is lost.

Here are some real facts for you.

This is a democratic republic. 

We, the citizens and voters of this country are the leaders.

We elect representatives to make and enforce laws that reflect the intentions and interests of the citizens.

Those elected are representatives of the people who have selected them to represent the interests of the people. Nothing more, nothing less.

When you don't vote, the politicians assume "leadership".  They see the situation as you have abandoned your position as a leader of this country and they will now speak for you since you will not speak for yourself.

When we do not vote, we give them power.  They will not relinquish power willingly.  Every person must claim the one piece of power they have, their vote.

The electoral college was designed to protect the minority states.  To give those states with lower populations equal footing.  That tool has been corrupted.

As long as the electoral college representatives do not have to agree with the popular vote of their district, the presidential election will continue to be bought and sold by party politicians.

Until it is corrected, Liberty is lost.
