Quit Complaining And Start Acting
All you freedom loving ‘muricans are all over the place complaining about something or another, and the amount of complaining is becoming more and more. If you haven’t got it by now, the politicians don’t really care what you have to say. If you haven’t noticed by now, the systems they put in place, doesn’t help you. You praise Law Enforcement, yet, they are the ones enforcing unjust laws. You praise the Military, but they are the ones fighting for freedom in other countries. You re-elect political representatives that just bow to the party leadership and not YOUR will, The People. And all you do is sit and complain. You claim to stand for freedom BUT you allow for the opposite. Thomas Jefferson said “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery“. If your going to waive the “Don’t Tread on Me” flag, be willing to act! Lets look at the modern reality. Its embarrassing at this point, but we can take notes from the French now…
When the founding fathers started this great nation, there were no gun control laws. Now, there are anywhere between 300 and 20,000; depending on which state you live in. When the new nation needed to hunt, they did; now it is government regulated and controlled. When the new nation wanted to farm and grow their own crops, they did; now you can’t even have a medium size garden in your front yard in most areas. Even rain water you catch, is government regulated. Any large amount of crops you grow, is government regulated. There was no Income Tax until the early 1900s! In just about every aspect of your life, the government now regulates. You need a license for just about every common life necessity; from self defense and Concealed Carry Licenses to divers licenses and all kinds of personal agricultural regulations. All you gun rights advocates still cower and bow to all sorts of gun laws that infringe on the very right you claim to stand for. The Boston Tea Party was over a 3% tax; now, as of 2016, there are roughly 74,608 tax laws. You have grown accustom to depending on the government for just about everything; Welfare, Social Security checks, food stamps, medicaid, medicare, government subsidizes, just to name a few.
You think voting will change this now? You vote for the same morons year after year. Or you vote for a different moron with the same agenda and ideology as the last one. YOU can no longer blame the politicians or the system you allowed them to create. US National debt is over 21 TRILLION! Debt owned by each tax payer is now 178,000 dollars! Government spending is 4.1 TRILLION dollars! The US Federal budge DEFICIT is over 800 BILLION DOLLARS. YOU elected these people! Just see http://www.usdebtclock.org/. That’s on YOU. And just look at some of the wasteful spending of YOUR tax dollars at https://www.rd.com/culture/wasteful-government-spending-examples/.
To government says you can’t vape but you can smoke cigarettes. You can’t smoke marijuana, but you can get drunk from alcohol. You can’t own certain guns, but the police can, and use them against you. You can’t feed the homeless cooked chicken but they can eat from the garbage. You can’t be armed in certain areas, yet, celebrities and politicians can have armed security where you can’t. Are they better than you? You can barely pay for your own health insurance premiums, yet, politicians (with your tax dollars) get amazing health insurance benefits. Just to name a few hypocrisies YOU find acceptable.
With all of this, you just go to work everyday, do your daily routine, thinking all this is just normal and a part of civilized life. Being in such a wealthy nation, you hardly notice the increase in inflation and the devaluation of your currency. US inflation is steady at a little over 2% annually. Do you get a 2% raise every year in your job? If not, than yes, everything is slowly getting more expensive for you. Companies then have to dish out a little more money to people they hire, thus driving up the costs of companies; who then increase the costs in other areas to compensate. You think this can just continue on forever? You think paying for healthcare is expensive? Guess what, your paying for the healthcare of politicians too. Their healthcare is super nice, hows yours?
In reality, your complaining has no effect; Why? Because the politicians YOU elect know your are not really going to do anything about it. Nothing is changing and nothing will change because YOU DO NOTHING, but run your annoying mouth. Maybe you will peacefully protest every so often (Tea Party protests of 2009), but, look what that accomplished… nothing. More of the same.
While the coming up generations, who do not really know what it is like to survive, vote for politicians who just want more power over the general public. They then craft small laws that just take a little more of your freedoms. This cycle just continues. You don’t really notice it because you still have your job and can, so far, pay your bills and put food on the table. When life because more and more difficult due to the increase in the cost of living, less wage increases due to a shrinking business income or costs, and government debt, budge deficit, and inflation; you can only blame yourself.
When you finally get off your butt to act; You attend a protest with no way to defend yourself due to gun control laws against a para-military police force using chemicals to dissuade your right to protest armed with weapons you are not allowed to own. You get arrested for disturbing the peace, even though you were just protesting but you did not have the proper permissions and permits to protest. You get labeled some kind of domestic terrorist or dissident and a FISA Court, that was secretly convened, issues a warrant to have your property searched and a Red Flag law imposed to remove your ability to defend yourself and your family… See where this is going? Everything in this scenario is real. Police do and can use chemicals to break up protests. They are armed with weapons that you are not allowed to have. They can arrest you for what they feel is “disturbing the peace” and you do have to have the proper permissions and permits to protest. The FISA Court’s do exist and Red Flag laws are being enacted and enforced. This sound like a freedom loving America?
Patrick Henry boldly declared “Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
Benjamin Franklin stated: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, and Benjamin Franklin all would be disguised and feel ashamed by the “patriots” of today. Today, you prefer a peaceful slavery, and are willing to give up essential liberties to purchase a little temporary Safety. They are right, with the weak minded complacency today, we deserve neither safety or liberty because we no longer see freedom as a greater importance than our own lives.
Change your mindset. Get over yourself. Consider your children and their children. Consider the freedom of your family for the generations to come. FIGHT for THEIR freedoms and liberty! Break out of your robotic blind slave-like modern complacency. Make the government OF THE PEOPLE! TAKE ACTION. Stop your sissy unfruitful complaining and Organize; STAND for the LIFE and FREEDOM for the generations to come.
Speak to your family, friends, co-workers, and organize your community! Seek that DANGEROUS FREEDOM and break the chains of your peaceful slavery! Teach your children of how American used to be and what it stands for. Teach them to be an activists for their future. THAT is something YOU are responsible for. That is what our children will look back and ask, why didn’t my parents fight for me? Plan and participate in local town halls. Repeatedly contact your local officials and request a town hall. Protest at their door steps if they are unwilling to convene a public open forum. Come together as a community, be unified in demands and do not bed until those demands are met. MAKE the politicians represent YOU and not their political party. Nothing will change for the better if YOU do not take the power back.
