Actually, speaking of “Exactly”
As I remember my history from so long ago, and quite probably why I hear so much about the degradation OF the history our children/grandchildren/great-grandchildren are being taught, we tried peaceful protest. Then we got a bit louder. Then the government started violent retribution. THEN we shot them.
Looks like that’s the route it will go again. But that’s also why we wrote the Constitution, so we wouldn’t have to go that way. But, as all supposed free societies in the past have gone, the government slowly but surely eroded the rights of the people. “For the greater good”. Piece at a time, little bit here, little bit there, until one morning we woke to find we were ruled not represented.
Well, it has taken them nearly a century because Americans were used to freedom and watched a bit more closely than today’s society. Piece at a time, little bit here, little bit there, wait a bit, little bit here, little bit there, taxation so far beyond what we rebelled against in the first place, back off some, feed it back in a piece at a time, …
Now, PC has us unable to say things, 1st Amendment, the 4th Amendment and 5th Amendments are kinda screwed if you’ve paid attention at all, the 2nd Amendment is supposed to be to protect the rest and it’s NOTHING like it was in the beginning because “Why would you need that? Just give up this piece,…”, we could go on.
Article 6 demands the requirement to swear to UPHOLD the Constitution for all offices in government, how’s that going for us? To violate your OATH to said Constitution could well be considered treason, if we had courts that were not in that same lying in said OATH mode.
Enough for now. Except to say that the only thing somewhat protecting our 1st Amendment rights is the interwebz. And you’ll notice they’ve tried to attack that time and again. Radio is pretty good, because we have those who do speak out there, but there aren’t as many of them as there should be. As for we bloggers, how many read us? Read our rants and think?
Okay, that’s enough for now.
