In this summer of tea parties, town hall meetings, Americans finally starting to accept their constitutional responsibility in openly demanding accountability and real representation from their elected officials; is the real “silent majority” finally waking up?
There is a real concern taking hold across the nation. It knows no party, race, religion, color, creed, gender, or age. A realization our country (if not already) may very soon, no longer be “ours”. That the actions and agendas, of various individuals, groups, agents, and agencies, seek to (for any number of reasons) build a “brave new world”. A world where our customs, mores, laws, and Constitution, will be worth little more than the paper they are printed on.
They recon we are nothing more then hot headed reactionaries. Feebly clinging to our outdated believes, our God, and our guns; but far too comfortable to do more than rant and rave over the noise of our televisions and radios. This is done at their very real peril.
The comfort level which once served to cushion the incremental changes to how (and how much) our government acts, reacts, and controls the populous, has all but disappeared. That which helped shield them, allowing time to cauterize any number of paper cuts to our individual freedoms and rights (as acknowledged, codified, and thus protected by the Constitution) is there no longer.
To this end, in order to perhaps bring focus to the real issues at hand, and in remembrance of came to pass a bit over 230 years ago, it is time for THE RECLAMATION OF INDEPENDENCE.
“… we hereby identify and reclaim our independence from the tools used to slowly enslave a free people and usurp the freedoms that we could not be persuaded to freely give up, or voluntarily suppress the free exercise of on our own … “
The astute “Black-is-White” goes on, much as the founding fathers did in the original Declaration of Independence, to level specific charges and decidedly specific rebuttal as to what is no longer going to be business as usual.
Than there is, from a man whose breath of knowledge, and mental prowess (and clearity) are second to, if not none, than few and far between. The Curmudgeon Emeritus invites discussion on what might be considered to be a review and or rewrite of the amendments to our Constitution. I don’t know as I agree with all which are offered, but they are well worth a look and provide for more than a fine exercise of ones constitutional gray cells.
There are many out there across the internet, who are saying that which must be said. Some speak from their hearts, with fire and passion (not that I would know anything about that *grin*). Others, no less passionate, address the serious concerns of the day with measured word, tempered with the light of reason, logic, and due deliberation. Both of these gentlemen fall into this category, and I feel privileged to have read their works.
Please pay them a visit, the coming storm is nearer than you know, and the nourishment proved by their food for thought is welcome indeed.
