The foibles of man and the never ending obsession for power along with the continued lust for money has once again reared it’s ugly head. This political dogma has become obvious to the pragmatic few who have been following the erosion of our founding freedoms, and rapid growth of government.
The United States foray into the land of the free home of the brave established some 234 years ago by a brilliant and powerfully written document our “constitution” has survived innumerable attacks by the weakness and greed of mans search for power.
But even though the premise and spirit of our founding fathers has survived, a concerted effort by the current politicians in power to subvert and re-write the law eroding all sense of freedom is and has been ongoing unchecked.
The constitutional revisionist point to and stand by their interpretation that the Constitution is in need of updating to the current issues facing our still young nation. Never has this become more obvious than when you compare the one page foundation of our nation, to the proposed “health Care” bill.
If you merely place the constitution and the health care plan on the podium next to one another, you will see times have changed, a one page concise document, written with fairness and continued freedom as its guiding premise, as opposed to the 1990+ page obtuse, expensive, rife with political paybacks and bureaucracy laden health care proposal, one can only come to the conclusion that we have strayed well off course over the last 100 or so years.
How can this observation be so obvious and yet so ignored? Partially to blame are the constituents, continual apathy, personal self absorbed greed, and just plan ignorance have fueled the rapid demise of the founding principals of our republic.
Blind unmitigated trust has been granted to our elected leadership, with the understanding that with this gift from the people they would have our best interests at hand. This short sited, unrestrained trust has allowed the weak of mind to infiltrate our government with the focus of the attainment of power and status with little interest or regard in serving the labor class who gave elected them.
Where our freedoms have survived given the daily organized attacks and goal of fiefdoms by our elected officials, the prognosis of the problems we face are and have been created by pure minimalism of the founding edicts so eloquently put in place by our original nation builders.
I fear we as a nation have much to overcome in our efforts to maintain our power and stature as a standard for the freedom of man, from man. Our current administration has been pinpoint in its efforts in attacking the letter of the law. The administration has placed a priority on it’s interpretation of the latitudes of our constitution and fervently working at disassembling the outline in its revisionist zeal. Just how far they can stray by testing the boundaries of our founding freedoms in the implementation of their infiltration is yet to be seen, but many bricks in that path have been laid.
America, we are facing a history changing set of events, we are being distracted by manufactured failures, an over-hyped focus on perceived needs, constant lies, and hyperbole with a daily dose of hypocrisy by our elected officials. It is as if America is a wounded animal left in the wild for all the scavenging predators to feast on bite by bite. Our elected leadership has had a free pass for far to long, we have allowed the 1% percent to rule the 99%, this is not about parties, our issues transcend partisanship, they speak to several very simple premises.
Truth, honor, sacrifice and freedom, need to be reestablished, the weak of mind and spirit must be purged, and a fundamental change of our leadership must take place to weed out the vermin firmly entrenched in the system. This shift can only take place if the foundation of “serving” the needs and desires of the people is cemented as the primary goal of all elected officials.
This can only take place by the establishment of term limits, a rarely discussed and avoided topic by our elected leaders. If ever a non-partisan grass roots movement needs to have a rallying call, term limits would be a noble and worthwhile goal, for without such change, the gorged ticks currently living off our nation have no motivation to change, unless they are culled.
Our great nation has survived many challenges, most of which have come from outside our boarders, now we must face the fact that the battle for freedom is an inside job, time for the lamb to conquer the lion, time to return the honor to our republic, see you at the booth in 2010.
