Are you concerned with events occurring in Washington D.C., in Lansing or other State Capitals, or in your city or town? You should be. The very Liberties that as a Nation we hold dear are slowly and methodically being encroached upon, eroded and if not protected will likely vanish.
Government is currently working hard at becoming our caretaker and wants to take control of more of our lives, our freedoms. Below is part of a much longer article and it seems that we are awakening from apathy just before dependence sinks its claws into us, we the people.
“The Cycle of Democracy has been summarized as:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty (rule of law);
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage (rule of men).”
The Essential Liberty publication in The Patriot Post.
The "Cycle of Democracy", if accepted as stated, would seem to project that we are about to repeat our own history. This time the dependency will on our own Government and the socialist (or Progressive, if you prefer) programs and entitlements. That is if the grass roots effort by groups such as The Tea Party to reclaim America does not stay the course.
If the voters are happy with the direction the Government at all levels are going then there is nothing to do.
If on the other hand the voters are not satisfied then jump in and become more vocal, more involved, more present in governmental issues regardless of interest.
Michigan’s Senator Carl Levin and Senator Debbie Stabenow voted with their Democratic Party on Senate Bills over 96% of the time. Those “yea” votes include the numerous bills that have created the highest National Debt in the history of the United States. That also includes the National Deficit of 1.47 trillion, and growing every second of every day. This irresponsible wholesale voting along party lines is leading the citizens of this Country to compromise our freedoms with a debt the United States will have to again borrow more money from China and Japan in order to sustain.
A word of caution to everyone reading this :Do not allow yourself to be complacent or apathetic. Seek out and support candidates that believe the same as We the People. Then work for them to remove the Liberals, the Progressives, and the career politicians from office that have shown their agenda to be the movement toward the control of our lives.
The Founding Fathers had run away government in mind by “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government...” Thomas Jefferson
Be certain friends that we are in the beginning of the 2nd American Revolution. We are in a fight for those Liberties and Freedoms as guaranteed by the Constitution. Your future freedoms may very well depend upon your involvement to stop the insanity.
Sanity can prevail, peacefully but those that would alter the foundations this Nation was founded upon must be voted out, regardless of their party affiliation, and fundamental rights restored to “from courage to liberty (rule of law)”. Otherwise God only knows what may happen next.
