A week or so I was explaining to a friend at work how currency is introduced into our economy by the FED. After I finished he said, “Damn Neal, what the hell are you doing here dumping fruit, you are too smart for this shit.” While this isn’t the first time that someone has told me that I’m really smart, the problem is that what good does all this knowledge do me when I can’t get people to think about any of it?
Contrary to what people say, I really don’t consider myself that smart. As Alexander Hamilton once said, “Men give me credit for some genius. All the genius I have is this. When I have a subject in mind. I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. My mind becomes pervaded with it… the effort which I have made is what people are pleased to call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought.”
It all depends upon what a person is interested in. I can’t invent new life-saving technologies nor can I compose a symphony, yet I can understand the writings and thought process of the people who established our Republic. I read, and re-read, and RE-READ again the writings of our Founding Fathers, and the men who influenced them, and I then compare what they said to what I see in our country today and I am absolutely amazed that anyone in this country can say that our country even comes close to resembling what our Founders had envisioned.
I don’t know who Joseph Sobran is but I saw a graphic on the internet awhile ago of something he said that has stuck with me. It stated, “In 100 years we have gone from teaching Latin and Greek in high school to teaching Remedial English in college.” But it’s not just language skills that our children our deficient in, it is a sense of national self, an understanding of the history and the political system of the country they live in that our children are lacking. Noah Webster, whose name is synonymous with Webster’s Dictionary, once said, “Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.”
You tell me, can our children do that? Can our adults? Can you? Ask anyone, ask yourself to recite the opening of the Declaration of Independence from memory, or the Preamble to the Constitution for that matter. Ask anyone how many amendments comprise the Bill of Rights and what rights they protect. Chances are they will ignore you, or say, “How the hell should I know?”
Yet when a people, as an entity, do not know how their nation was founded, or the principles upon which their system of government was established, it is an easy task for those in power to usurp powers which it was never intended they possess. Although it has been falsely attributed to Thomas Jefferson, the following quote is nonetheless true, “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.”
If you, and by you I mean the people of this country, do not know the limits our Founders imposed upon those who we would elect to represent us, who is to stop them from assuming powers it was intended they do not exercise, or to halt the erosion of your rights for which the government was created to protect?
You look at what happens in this country today when people like Ron Paul talk about a Constitutionally limited government, or when groups such as the Tea Party speak out against the abuses of power by the government; they are ridiculed, denigrated, and shunned by the two main political parties in this country. Why is it that a nation that supposedly prides itself on freedom of speech and open-mindedness, shuns any discussion of a government which clearly has violated the limits imposed upon it by the Constitution? Just look at what happened to Edward Snowden when he risked everything to bring to your attention the extent to which your government is spying on the public.
The reason he had to flee for his own safety is because evil does not like having the spotlight shone upon it. Too many people still think they have a choice in the November elections to choose someone who will represent them, be it a governor, a Senator, or a President. We are given two choices, sometimes more, but most always they are Republican or Democrat and they are basically vying for their turn to impose their vision of an all powerful government upon the people.
You may tell yourself that there is a difference between the two parties and that we have to elect the lesser of the two evils if we wish to halt the decline of our nation. But if we choose a lesser evil, aren’t we still getting evil? If you want to know who runs this country you need to follow the money. I’m not talking about who contributes to the campaigns of those running for office, I’m talking about those who finance the party machines behind them. I’m talking about who funds the Republican and the Democrat parties. They are the machines that generate the candidates we choose from, and they will not fund, or support, anyone who strays from their respective platforms. Just look at how the Republican Party shunned Ron Paul, even though he was running as a GOP candidate for president. I have my own questions about Ron Paul, but if you REALLY wanted a lesser of two evils for president, he was the one you SHOULD HAVE voted for.
But we have become such obedient little sheeple that we follow orders and believe everything we are told by the supposed pundits and experts, it has gotten so bad that we are damn near incapable of forming an intelligent thought of our own. How else can you explain why so many people go about their lives uncaring that their rights are slowly being eradicated and that our country is moving closer and closer to a complete police state?
Just look at how many, quote unquote, law ENFORCEMENT agencies the government has at its disposal to keep YOU in line. Yet where is the law enforcement to keep our government in line with the Constitution? Answer me that Batman. You violate any of the laws our government enacts and some agency is tasked with ensuring that you are fined, arrested, or imprisoned for your offense. Yet can we the people fine, arrest, or imprison those who swear an oath to uphold the Constitution? I dare you, no, I double dare you to walk into your representatives office and place them under citizen’s arrest for violating their oath. Just watch what happens to YOU.
No folks, we live in a police state where the real criminals are in charge and there is not much you can do about it as long as you continue to believe that we have a free democratic process. And believe me, the criminals have been busy just in case one day the people of this country do wake up to their treason or if by their mismanagement of affairs our country suffers a catastrophic economic collapse.
Most people shake their heads in disbelief when someone mentions the things I am about to say, but facts are facts and you are a fool if you expect the government to come out and confirm the things I am going to say. But as a lover of liberty I cannot, in clear conscience, not try to warn you.
The government has camps, some call them FEMA Camps, some call them relocation centers, but they are basically prisons. They are all over the country and they are designed for one thing only, to put large numbers of people in the event things get out of hand in America. If people such as myself, those who try to warn people about the abuses of power by their government, are not initially exterminated, we will be housed there. So will those who are non-productive members of society. So those of you who are as happy as a pig in a shit right now due to all those benefits you get from Uncle Sam at no cost, you may one day find yourself in one of these facilities.
Just look back through your history when any system of government becomes totalitarian…what happens to those who dissent or serve no useful purpose? Look to Nazi Germany and the SS, or Soviet era Russia with the KGB and their gulags. Think that can’t, or won’t, happen in America? Keep dreaming.
Just look at the Department of Homeland Security. Why in the world do they need all those armored vehicles they have, or the millions of rounds of ammo they have been purchasing? Now I’m hearing that they are planning to purchase 141,000 rounds of sniper ammunition. Are they expecting a war, and if so, against whom? Call me crazy but I think they are expecting something, be it enough of the people waking up to their governments crimes, or a social upheaval do to an economic collapse. Whatever the case they are gearing up for something, and most people today are completely oblivious to it.
Then there are all the Executive Orders that have been in place, some of them dating back to when JFK was president. There is EO 10995 which allows the government to seize control of the media. Why would they want to do that unless it was to halt the flow of information to the people? But that’s not all.
There is EO 10999 which allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports; there is EO 10997 which allows government to take over control of all electrical power, gas, fuels and minerals; there is EO 10998 which allows government to take over all food resources and farms; and finally EO 10000 which allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under supervision of federal agents. It even allows for the breaking up of families if it is deemed in the public’s best interest. Why would they issue Executive Orders such as these if they never intend to use them?
But no, we don’t live in a police state say the sheeple. Maybe, at least for now we don’t, not to the degree I am talking about. But the infrastructure is in place and all they need is the right crisis for them to suspend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, impose martial law, and then what are you going to do?
You tell me, with all this spying our government is doing; with all those drones, not only capable of spying, but firing upon you, flying around; with all that ammo being purchased and all those armored vehicles being purchased by DHS and even local law enforcement, aren’t you just a BIT CONCERNED? Or is what’s on prime time tonight more important?
Sorry people, you’ve been brainwashed into following orders, to obeying anyone in a position of authority, and to NOT question anything. The terms serve and protect no longer have any meaning for those whose job it is to enforce the law. They are here to KEEP YOU IN LINE. The moment you question their authority, or the legality of what they are doing, you are tazed, pepper sprayed, beaten into submission, or even shot and killed. In the America of 2014 there is no room for civil disobedience.
Like I said, America is way behind the curve. The average person still thinks this is the land of the free and the home of the brave. Well, if your among those that do, I ask that you try questioning authority, try disobeying some law you find to be unconstitutional. You’ll quickly find out how free you are, that is if you are even brave enough to attempt it.
May our Founders Republic rest in peace…
