July 4th is not about fireworks or a day off
This isn’t my usual type of blog, as I’m serious about my Constitutional rights. I used to love celebrating July 4th. Now I feel as if I’m witnessing the death of a loved one.
Not all people who believe in the fundamental principles inherent in the Constitution of the United States of America are gay bashing religious extremists. That’s a stereotype on par with those uninformed people who believe that certain races possess a distinct character. This blog entry isn’t about gay marriage, or who has the best religion, or if the Democans/Repblicats have found the true path. I care as much about those issues as about which movie actor is cheating on his wife. Those are all minor compared to the loss of our freedom, the fundamental principle upon which a great nation was created. Without the freedoms set forth by the Constitution, we’ll eventually exist in a country where there are no political parties, religion, or marital choices that haven’t been sanctioned by a tyrannical oligarchy.
There used to be freedom of speech and ability to express your thoughts in a USA
- where people’s email and web surfing activities weren’t being stored by the NSA, or
- where there wasn’t a Patriot Act or
- where the NDAA hadn’t stripped away a legal US resident’s right to be free of unlawful search and seizure.
The USA I grew up in
- still had the right to privacy,
- the second amendment was your right to carry, and
- there were still a few reporters who weren’t either in the pockets of special interests or threatened by a government that might not like what they had to say.
While the USA has never been perfect, because humans can’t be perfect, our founders added in an amendment process so the mistakes of the past could be corrected (such as slavery). That worked until presidents of all persuasions discovered the “Executive Order.”
I have to say, “God bless the USA by bringing back the Republic for which it stands.” Why? When tanks and soldiers have to go through Boston forcing people to allow them to search their homes, it means a USA that once made an attempt to follow the principles inherent in the constitution has morphed into a generic America that is a Police State.
I am saddened that on the day a great nation was forged there are legal US residents who can’t understand what they’re celebrating. It’s not about fireworks or having the day off. The Constitution is the foundation for our country, not an optional, outdated document. We are supposed to live in THESE United States of America, not The United States of America. We are supposed to be legal US residents, not “American citizens.” Without a firm understanding of the reasons why these concepts are fundamental to our Republic, our nation is doomed.
If there is such an entity as an angel guiding These United States of America, she can’t be happy about the way we’ve forgotten what a Hitler, Stalin or Castro can do to a populace. We are not supposed to be American citizens (wards of the state). We are supposed to have inalienable human rights as born or naturalized (assimilated) legal US residents who believe in and follow Constitutional principles.
No matter what your race, color or creed. No matter if you pray, how you pray, to whom you pray or what you pray to–hope that if there’s a next “angel” in our future it’s not the angel of death. For if we no longer remember the foundations upon which a great country was built, we’ll be ill equipped to fight him off.
Sorry, but I would rather be dead than watch the government crap happening. I don’t want to exist in a space that has made me into a puppet, nor do I trust the puppeteer. And if you think the puppeteer resides in DC you’d best think again.The first step that lead to where we are now happened as far back as 1924. Any reading this can search the internet for it. It began then with a Treaty.
They will take my guns away over my dead body…literally. No, I am not a fanatic, just intelligent enough, and focused enough to have not only done my research but to have remembered that I was a year old when Pearl Harbor was attacked. I remember tokens and coupons, rationing etc..and PATRIOTISM……..all followed many times thru the following years by STRIKES that didn’t keep food on the table nor shoes on my feet. Any of you readers remember the ’40’s?
Our Constitution has been raped. That means we have been raped. How do you feel? Sick? In pain? Well don’t try to get madical care for it. Not happening folks. You’ll just have to get better or die of it. Personally getting better is not my option. To get better we will have to put aside our various differences and wrok together as a team. Can you see that happening? That is about as likely as the local parade and celebration being about the birth of our nation. That hasn’t happened for many years. Like Christmas being about the birth of the Christ child. That’s not happening either.
Negative attitude you say? Absolutely. I’m POSITIVE that I have become really NEGATIVE ………. about the future of this nation …… and our future.
Yes, DJ, the Constitution of the Republic of the United States of America has been raped, and it has been done in the worst way. By first lying and cheating and then by pulling a blanket of fear over the heads of the Citizens.
Now there’s a blanket party going on with the Citizenry being beaten to a pulp with illegal and usurped powers–whether they are the general populace who fears for their miserable lives, thinks they are being protected, and has deliberately put their own heads under the blanket, or whether it’s the few citizens left who see what’s happening, are being classified as fools and weirdos, and have been shoved under the blanket kicking and screaming all the way.
Eventually the bulk of the citizens, or, at least those who have not been deliberately dumbed down by a manipulated educational system, the addition of mind numbing chemicals in foods and water, and the apathy-fear that has been building in this country for almost 100 years, may wake up, take note, and finally say something along the lines of, “We’re madder than hell and WE’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE!”.
I just hope it’s not too late.
Thank you both for commenting.
