“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom–go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” (Samuel Adams)
In our last posting we talked about how near we are to losing our most cherished freedoms. Since then I have received a lot of criticism from well-meaning friends who think that I should not rock the boat.
My friends, the boat is sinking. I had nothing to do with it. Many patriots have been warning us that the government is working on enslaving us. I have believed them because I have studied history and this has all happened before. It is not new. Events have accelerated. There is no more time for us to sit around and think about whether or not we will trust the government. They are lying to us. They have put themselves above the law. If you looked at pictures of nude children on your computer, you could be arrested for child pornography. The TSA agents are allowed to ogle pictures of naked children and women all day long. There is absolutely nothing about their disgusting actions that protects us. It is all about humiliation.
As I see it your options are:
1. Put your head back in the sand and hope it all goes away. It won’t. It’s too late.
2. Get busy and study about what is going on. There are many Websites you can go to. I’ll be referring to those and to people that you should be following and supporting. Remember, in the last post, I urged everyone to try and get along with those that you may not see completely eye-to-eye with. Find out what we have in common – we love freedom!
A good example of this is Dr. Michael Savage. Some find him to be really abrasive. But, my friends, he is a true patriot. He has been fighting for us for a long time. Forget your minor prejudices and listen to him and support him. Buy his books.
Another good book, though a little dated, is Judge Andrew P. Napolitano’s, A Nation of Sheep. When he wrote this book in 2007, Bush was still president. It is amazing how much has happened since then. Things are much, much worse. For example, Judge Napolitano laments that, “taking your shoes and anything remotely metal off to have them X-rayed at an airport has become standard operating procedure. The sheep do not question that they are being forced to walk barefoot through metal detectors because of one man’s failed attempt at using his shoe as a bomb. They simple do as they are told and follow the rest of the herd.” (page 14)
Now the sheep not only have bare feet, they have totally bare bodies!!
This is exactly what I mean about the acceleration of the trashing of our fourth amendment rights. The government has absolutely no compelling interest in viewing your naked body. Don’t believe their lies.
As Christian women, of course, we can pray to our Heavenly Father to give us wisdom. We can stand for truth, even if our sheeple friends snicker at us. When Patrick Henry spoke his famous words, not everyone understood just how much was at stake. But he knew that the time to stand for liberty was NOW! There were many people in his day who just wanted to have personal peace and prosperity. They did not want to risk anything in order to have freedom and to secure it for their posterity. They were foolish enough to think that their government (Britain) would leave them alone. How wrong they were. Governments NEVER get less oppressive. They always take away more and more freedoms in order to gain more and more power for themselves. Look how bad our government has gotten in only the last two years. Just what will your children be living under? You owe it to them to try and reverse the tide of slavery that is soon going to engulf us.
We must begin to write to our senators and representatives and tell them that we are disappointed in how cowardly they are. Yes, tell them that they are cowards. They took an oath to uphold the constitution, and we expect them to obey that oath. If they refuse, then let’s get busy and elect people who will uphold the constitution.
Ladies, we are not at the point of having to take up arms. We still have the ballot box, and our pens. Do all that you can to begin to reverse this tide.
“As long as we seek safety at the expense of our freedoms, as long as we think or believe that the government can keep us safe, as long as we are too afraid to speak up, those who want to control us will place more and more curbs on our freedom.”
Yes, history is repeating itself. It’s because we won’t learn from it. We are stubborn. We fall into the same traps as those who went before us. We think that we are more clever than they were. We think it won’t happen here. YES, IT WILL! It’s inevitable. The reason is: human nature.
More on that in the next posting.
Please keep praying. Be courageous.
