Each generation has placed it self on the shoulders of the past generation to produce an increasing uplifting existence, by extending knowledge, prosperity, as a benefit to all. To day we seem to be producing a generation incapable of supporting another generation on their shoulders, net alone their own heads. Living only for the moment, to the extent of what makes us feel good, enjoying a fantasy existence of avoiding reality. Living life in the fast lane. Doctor, doctor think I’m going to crash. Doctor says you got to pay in cash. Life in the fast lane. Remember the rock-n-roll band the Eagles, their song that went like that? Are we just now as a nation coming to that point. Where our credit is worthless and we will need to pay in cash?
“It appears to me… little short of a miracle that the delegates from so many different states ( which states … are so different from each other in their manners, circumstances, and prejudices) should unite in forming a system of national government so little liable to well-founded objections.” George Washington.
Today we have become a nation based on a society of rule by man. The Constitution, once held in high esteem, is now often ignored, changed to meet the opinion of a judge, or considered outdated. Whereas our founders revered it and considered it to be a document written for the ages.
” The choice before us is plain, Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration. I am rather tired of hearing about our rights and privileges as american citizens. The time is come, it now is, when we ought to hear about the duties and responsibilities of our citizenship.” Peter Marshall, The rebirth of America, page 205
I believe that earlier generations in America made mistakes, but nothing short of the kind this generations almost treasons betrayal of the abandonment of the virtues and values from our politicians, and their support of dishonest presentations of policy’s leading to immoral teachings of our present day churches. Who promote the same lazy attitudes towards letting government slowly erode the moral fiber. In other words, we have all to some degree, become responsible for the mismanagement of the gift, ( given to us in the form of freedom ) and exchanged it with the slippery slope of a managed decay.
This managed decay has all but blindfolded us into believing treacherous politicians, that would use anything to acquirer power, fortune, and fame, over you. In spite of the great blessings given in the form of deciding for ourself’s, our lives outcomes ( Freedom, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. from our founding)
There are some of our citizenry whom hate this nations form of government and its founding documents (which limits size, and power of the government) and preserves that power for the population. We have become therefore a divided citizenry. Those who hate this form of government, dedicated to destroying it, while still others indifferent, apathetic who could care less, interested only by materialistic things, or hedonistic attitudes of getting all for one and one for all.
” if a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” Thomas Jefferson, letter to Chas. Yancey, 1816
using history as our future guide, and trying to use when ever possible the thinking of our founding fathers, which has led us to great accomplishments over the past 200 + years.
” I believe foresight through hindsight conduces insight which we so badly need now.”Ronald M. Mann, Deputy Director Commission of the Bicentennial of the United States Constitution.
” I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience.” Patrick Henry
This election season has the population ( We the people ) deciding which direction to go with our government. To continue to celebrate the freedoms of our god given rights, or to replace them with the state sponsored gifts of rights they will alow us to live with. Of course allowing openings, all the while to change them as the government sees fit. There is no representation on earth of such a nation as ours, which has had success that rivals ours through freedom. All other nations who also claim to have freedom have copied ours, but only to the extent of having partial freedoms. Even our freedoms have been given away bit by bit, a slow erosion, and yet even though they’re smaller to the extent of that of our founding. We remain the nation of choice to go to, from all other human hell holes created by copies of socialism or freedom alike.
We still remain the light to the world, because we still present to the world, the greatest value of all. GOD GIVEN RIGHTS!
Are we to be willing to wither away from our role of being first on the scene of natural disasters, limiting our peace making abilities through a strong defence, eliminating for all intent discovery’s of new technology’s, innovations, inventiveness, to experience as well express unlimited human potential through hard work and the discoveries as well as promotion of our God-given talents. The unlimited potential of human worth, unrestricted, and yet totally defended and promoted. A government who presents a moral standing to the world, must then govern itself with that same moral insight. With out, it would just magnify the corruptions of a hypocrite.
Are we to give all of this away in exchange for an average existence at best through socialization. A form of government in all of its forms that has been tried in history and left wanting. A form of government that only leads to a shared misery for all, death through wars, and starvation? For it is socialism only gift for all humanity, given to the world, as presented as their evidence of success from the pages of history. A stark difference to that of what freedom has presented.
“Governments in general, have been the result of force, of fraud, and accident. After six thousand years has elapsed since its creation, the UNITED STATES exhibit to the world the first instance, as far we can learn, of a nation, unattacked by external force, unconvulsed by domestic insurrection, assembling voluntarily, deliberating fully, and deciding calmly concerning that system of government under which they would wish that they and their posterity should live.” James Wilson
We have come to this point in decision this election year. At this point, are we to write our history in the great history books of time. Should we then exchange our God-given gift of self-determination, which has led us to experience, even thou we are imperfect people, great accomplishments. Being able to building on these accomplishments, placing ourself’s therefore on the shoulders of giants, all the while preparing ourself’s to support the next generations and their accomplishments. So that freedom shall continue going further in time.
“Freedom is never closer to extinction then one generation away.” Ronald Reagan
Or are we going to exchange this positive past history of accomplishment, for a future so brightly blinding. To except for ourselves and that of our children, through governmental socialization, and a persevered life of extended ease the way of uncontrolled debts, financing our adventuress journey into the future, by spending our children’s future, making slaves out of their working lives to pay for our enjoyments at the expense of any possibility’s to have the same. All for a return trip in time, returning to the past historical facts of a socialists average existence of equal misery?
