The Key to Keeping Freedom Alive
Is not more centralization actually what the current administration and Congress are undertaking? Our Founders warned us of this movement, this trend toward Socialism or Marxism. Central planning does not work for the average American. It may work for those elite who think that they know better than everyone else.
However, wherever Socialism, Communism or Marxism has been tried it has been an abject faiture. Look at Europe, we could be seeing America in the near future if the current government remains in power and acts as it has since January 2009 ...
Today of all days as we celebrate our independence, as we celebrate our cherished liberties, we need to consider the gradual usurping of our freedom by the government in the name of security or ease ...
Let us heed the warning of our Founders and work to restore the principles upon which this nation was birthed. Let us Remember in November to do our duty and to remove those supposed representatives of the people who are seeking to destroy our lives, our liberties, and our opportunities to pursue happiness!
