This is a contribution by a friend of mine. This is stated in a very strong way that isn’t as rambling as I can get at times! LOL Even though we have somewhat similar philosophies in regards to personal freedom, we come from completely different demographic groups (me: afro-american female gen x er who voted for Obama in 2008 her: boomer grandmother (barbie looks) who didn’t vote for Obama in 2008), neither one of us will not be voting for Obama this election.
In November 2012 We the People have a huge choice to make… “who” do we choose as the individual to run our country, to protect its peoples’ freedoms… to be our leader, to keep this county free, to be our… President of The United States of America.
It all started when We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America… or did we forget this core somewhere along the way? Did we unknowingly let go of this foundation of individual freedoms for liberty and the pursuit of happiness that built this great nation? If we did… for what reason did we do this? Did we do this fully conscious of the consequence of what letting our “freedom to choose” go bit by bit and what it would mean to our nation or to us individually? I think not! Maybe it is time we wake up to this downfall and set individual personalities, color or creed aside… and remember what we should be voting for… the best individual, the ONE that will, without bias, uphold our Constitution, nothing more or nothing less.
Let’s exam what We the People are voting for and if we are honest about it, it may really come down to defending a certain party that we feel is better than another… skin tones or religious beliefs that, in reality have nothing to do with what we “should” be voting for. What we should be voting for is simple… will this individual without question live up to their vow when they take the oath of presidency and defend our way of life, hold firm to our constitution and uphold the power of the people to choose. What presidential candidate is in favor of restoring the Constitution or at best which candidate will cause the least destruction to its roots, the foundation that built this great nation… the core of freedom that grants the people these God Given rights that our Constitution protects. Will this individual vow to restore this nation to its greatest by returning to what rose it to greatest… our constitution? YES OR NO!
We already know “who won’t” because that is the direction the current administration already took us… demanding that Obama Health Care be passed…. against the “will” of the people… and Obama’s welfare act… acting solely, and using his presidential power overrode in July 2012 the current Welfare Act that the people wanted. These two actions by the current president went against the Constitutional Rights of the people to choose. Just these two presidential orders, forget about the others, these two alone created not only ever mounting debit for our country, it stripped away even more personal freedoms from We the People, under the illusion of being “taken care of” by the government. If we look to history as a teacher, then realize giving this power to the government only ends up as history teaches us… ever mounting oppression of individual freedom. Oppression is what it is… it holds no favor to governmental parties, to color or creed it simply grows by griping the life, the spirit from an individual until one becomes or feels powerless to resist.
Liberty is the right to choose, freedom is the result of that choice. Unknown
Obama stripped this freedom from We the People… in just these two acts… are we going to continue this madness… yes or no? There is nothing more to debate. Are We the People going to let those we elect serve We the People by upholding our constitution or not? I say YES… let We the People stand up and end the government controlling our lives! The government exists to protect NOT control.
The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object. Thomas Jefferson
I hope you can see how the spirit that this great nation was built on is slowly being rubbed away by taking on a philosophy that history has proven has destroyed other countries. Will we allow this to happen to the United States of America? YES OR NO! Remember, what appears on the surface as a kind act is in actuality creating dependency on a government for the basic needs of life and happiness instead of instilling hope, and shaping self esteem in people. Obama’s placed into law policies both on health and welfare that slowly removes the spirit of those individuals by degrading their spirit because it gets them to “fear’ that without the governments help they can’t survive, therefore creating a false NEED to be taken care of by the government. They will never really be able to create through the joy of discovering their abilities and talents. How many gifts is this society being robbed of because people aren’t encouraged to flourish by using their gifts? How many more gifts are being snuffed out because this legacy is passed on generation after generation? Isn’t inspiration the soul that built this country… allowing the gifts of each human being to be encouraged not stuffed.
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin
Sovereign rule is possessing supreme or ultimate power: in modern democracies the people’s will is in theory sovereign. OR has it reversed itself where America has taken on a philosophy that destroys instead of build like the founding Fathers of this country put into place when they established our freedoms through the Constitution for the United States of America? Remember, practically the entire country “voted against” Obama Health Care… a program, that when you looked closely at its basic core strips the individual rights from the people to choose… all people not just the wealthy, the middle class and poor will eventually suffer the same consequence when the “right to choose” is taken away, as it has been under Obama Health Care. Yet, here we are with a President that went against the will of the people and had “his way” by forcing his health care into law. This is NOT what our great nation was built on and it is time the people looked deeper at what is happening, become informed… honestly… not through political or religious differences or covering up the real issue with decoys that defuse the truth of what is happening… Americans losing their freedoms through more and more government control. Remember, what you willingly give away is much harder to retrieve because you gave away through you will your “freedom to choose”.
True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. Franklin D. Roosevelt
This is the effects of more and more government involvement in peoples lives… the effects of government control creates control over its people. An example of this is the latest fraud against individual freedom for the right to pursue happiness when Obama reversed Welfare “right to work act” in July 2012. He repealed the education/work requirements of those who receive welfare, so now those who do receive welfare don’t have work or receive education to empower themselves to be self sufficient. This act does not help those recipients, it in truth harms them because the welfare recipients lost valuable training and incentives to be self-sufficient and grow an inner feeling or deep pleasure of satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired: and instead forced them to rely on the government which only keeps one trapped in subservient mindsets while ever mounting debt that has now reach the trillions under Obama’s resgime.
The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission. John F. Kennedy
We can not, and should not, surrender or submit to more and more government laws that control our ability to freely choose.
The law will never make men free, it is men that have to make the law free. Henry David Thoreau
I trust We the People will look more closely at the truth of where our county is “today”… what has weaken us from being a world leader to a nation that is trillions of dollars in debt due to a “give away for nothing” philosophy, and by allowing our government to control our choices in the illusion giving this control to the government will keep us safe… or getting caught in the illusion that security comes from being “taken care” of by… the government… this kind of philosophy has eroded this nation from being a great leader. Please AMERICA look closely at the give away and take care of philosophy what is decaying the very heart and core of this nation’s foundation and strength.
We as a nation can either choose to slowly lose our personal and national empowerment through a continual decay of our Constitutional rights, or we can chose to stem the advancing tide of continuous disempowering decay. I’m voting for Romney, not because he is a Republican, because I am a registered Democrat, also I am not shying away from voting for him because his religious beliefs are different from mine, I am voting for him because “he” is “now” the better and “only” other choice we have to turn this slippery side of crumbling our great nation around. What will you do to “protect your freedom to choose”? What will you do to protect this country’s Constitution?
Freedom is not the right to do what we want, but what we ought. Let us have faith that right makes might and in that faith let us; to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it. Abe Lincoln
Don’t “close your eyes” to what is happening because you don’t want to get involved? VOTE THIS NOVEMBER. Forget about the party, color or creed of the individual… vote for the person that vows to uphold the freedoms our constitution granted each and every man, women and child? VOTE for… Romney.
