I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
--Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775
We are currently fighting a war in Iraq, even though Congress never declared war as required by the Constitution Of The United States, illegal wiretaps have been carried out, the NSA has been collecting phone call records on millions of Americans. These are just a tiny fraction of the ways in which the Constitution has been subverted and the liberty of Americans has been trampled upon. Under both Republican and Democratic administrations, the government, over the years, has chipped away at the freedoms of its' citizens.
How much longer will it be before those freedoms disappear entirely?
People will say "Oh, that can't happen here--the United States is the freest country on Earth!" Well, guess what...it has been happening here, a little at a time...bit by bit. Governments rule through the use of "force or fraud" , either forcing their citizens to obey it's edicts or fooling them into obeying "because it's in your best interests" (even when it's not).
The scariest thing about this is that most people just don't seem to care that their liberty is being slowly taken away. People are more concerned about the cost of gasoline than the cost of their lost freedoms.
Is it that people have forgotten what liberty is or were never taught the true meaning of liberty? Perhaps a refesher course is necessary--click here to watch a short animation on "The Philosophy Of Liberty". Go ahead--watch it--I promise you it's an interesting (as well as educational) animation. I wouldn't lie to you....I don't work for the government !
