Everyone COMPLAINS about the government infringing on their rights…. The thing is TOO many of us seem unwilling to do ANYTHING about it. I’ve often said that people abuse for JUST as long as you allow it. When you jump up and give ONE person a fat lip or black eye; then they mostly leave you alone. Crude analogy for a very REAL situation.
We stand by and say nothing while our rights are being slowly stripped from us day by day. It all started when America accepted the UN-Constitutional notion that we had to FORCE people to be fair and not discriminate during the Civil Rights era. I am a person of SO called “mixed race” with African/Puerto Rican on one side and Cherokee/Irish on the other. I grew up in Detroit and lived there until almost fifteen. I have lived in NYC and Alston, Mass too. I give all of this as a preface to what I am about to say…
When we decided to stand by while the government FORCED racists and rednecks to accept integration and to be MADE to serve people against their consciences, we all lost something. WHY on Earth would any Black person of that era want to put money in the hands of a person who was calling then the N word and refusing to serve them just a month ago? The PROPER and LEGAL way to have addressed this was for the PEOPLE to refuse to do business with these racists; by protest and to influence through social and economic pressures to change. When a persons hard headedness affects their bottom line they start to think about what needs to change.
We stand here and LET Muslims and other blacks use “cooperative economics” which basically means they will only do business with other blacks and or Muslims if they have a choice! WHAT? We now let blacks do what we forbid whites from doing? We also allow the formation of Black, Asian etc student unions but no White student unions! Here in Indianapolis we have Black Expo every year! Can you imagine the outcry if someone organized a WHITE Expo?
We forced people to act against their own consciences and stole away their private property rights and right to freedom of association and NOW the incursions into our rights progresses. Get your 4th amendment rights to protection against unreasonable search and seizure violated by the NSA daily, the TSA should you decide to use commercial travel while the Muslims walk right past the nude body scanners and pat downs. As a Christian it is against MY religious beliefs to have anyone see my naked body or touch me aside from my wife and doctor and the same goes for my wife. WHY are we subjected to these types of violations? Oh, that’s right because of 9/11 and the terrorists. Well, I am an Army war Vet and my wife is Caucasian and it’s not people like US that were responsible for 9/11. Israel doesn’t use scanners and DOES profile and they haven’t had a hijacking since 1968.
We need to start actually voting FREEDOM first and any person who opposes ANY of our Constitutional rights, or who makes laws or otherwise shows them to support the restriction of our rights should NEVER be voted for. Write letters call your representatives and when there is a town hall meeting on issues of import to you GO and speak up. We have to make our voices heard before we lose ALL of our rights. If government can force you buy insurance what CAN’T they do to you?
Sorry for the rant but I am getting so tired of people admitting the problems they see but basically being too complacent to actually DO anything about it. Not saying that is you but I do my part to get people informed and motivated to act. Its also AMAZING to me how people CORRECTLY point out the failings of George W Bush like the Patriot Act but stand silently or even defend Obama renewing and expanding the Patriot Act by building huge monitoring centers and spying on EVERY American with their own tax money, killing American Citizens abroad with drone strikes WITHOUT due process of law, forcing Americans to buy a product, signing on to the UN Small Arms Treaty etc etc.
The WORST offenses against the people and the Constitution in this great nation always come from the Leftists Democrats! Japanese Internment Camps during WWII, Ruby Ridge, Waco, Fast & furious etc etc. People need to wake up and look around at what is happening.
Find out just what the people will submit to and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.
— Frederick Douglass, civil rights activist, Aug. 4, 1857 Frederick Douglas like most ALL Blacks during the civil rights era was REPUBLICAN.
Interesting how the Dems have people believing the Party that freed the slaves and orchestrated and implemented Civil Rights laws are racists while the Party of the KKK and George McGovern are now the party of Black people. Democrats used to use disgusting political signs that said the Republican party was the party of the Negro and the Democrats were the party of the white man.
