Our Basic Freedoms

WE HAVE MANY BASIC FREEDOMS AND RIGHTS IN THIS COUNTRY, BUT AS THE NATION AGES THERE IS A SLOW EROSION OF THESE.  YES, THE CONSTITUTION IS THERE TO PROTECT US FROM THE ENCROACHMENT OF A EVER GROWING CENTRAL GOVERNMENT AND POWER SEEKING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS.  THE OLDER ANY GOVERNMENT GETS THE MORE REGULATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS IT PLACES ON ITS PEOPLE.  THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND WILL ALWAYS BE. REVOLUTION---REPRESSION---AND THEN REVOLUTION AGAIN, A PATTERN THAT ALWAYS REPEATS ITSELF.  ALL WE AS INDIVIDUALS CAN DO IN THE SHORT TIME WE WALK THE LAND IS TO TRY AND SLOW DOWN THE PROCESS IF ITS IN THE REPRESSION STAGE---THE STAGE WE FIND OURSELVES IN TODAY. 

NORMALLY, WE HAVE TWO GROUPS OF PEOPLE IN ANY SOCIETY---THOSE WHO ARE INDIVIDUALIST AND THOSE WHO ARE COLLECTIVIST---AND THESE ARE DIVIDED INTO MANY SUB-GROUPS.  FOR EXAMPLE ON THE INDIVIDUALIST SIDE WE HAVE THE "CONSERVATIVES AND THE LIBERTARIANS".  PERSONALLY I BELIEVE THE CONSERVATIVE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A RATIONAL LIBERTARIAN.  DIDN'T MEAN TO GET INTO THE WEEDS.  SO LET ME GET TO THE POINT.  THE BIGGEST THREAT I SEE TODAY IS FROM THOSE WHO WOULD LIMIT OUR PERSONAL CHOICES IN THE NAME THE "COMMON" GOOD.  THIS GROUP OF COLLECTIVIST HAS HAD A FREE HAND FOR A LONG TIME AND SEE THEMSELVES AS THE PROTECTORS OF SOCIETY IN GENERAL AND THE WEAK IN THAT SOCIETY SPECIFICALLY.  AND IN THEIR ZEAL TO KEEP US FROM MAKING THE WRONG CHOICE, THEY TRAMPLE THE MOST BASIC FREEDOM WE HAVE, AND I MENTIONED THIS IN MY PREVIOUS POST; "THE FREEDOM TO MAKE THE WRONG CHOICE"!  ONE NEED ONLY LOOK AT OBAMACARE AS A PRIME EXAMPLE.  WITH OBAMACARE THEY ARE TELLING US THEY KNOW WHAT'S BEST AND PROHIBITING US FROM MAKING A CHOICE.  WITH THE COLLECTIVIST: PUBLIC SAFETY, PUBLIC WELFARE, PUBLIC HEALTH, ARE ALL TOOLS TO BE USED TO ADVANCE THEIR AGENDA WHICH WILL ALWAYS TRUMP INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS.  WITH EACH OF THEIR NEW LAWS THE FREEDOM OF THE INDIVIDUAL SHRINKS WHILE THE POWER OF THE COLLECTIVE GROWS.  FREEDOM IS AN INDIVIDUAL THING AND FREEDOM TO MAKE THE RIGHT OR WRONG DECISION IS THE MOST CRITICAL PART OF IT.
NOTE: MY SPELL CHECK ISN'T WORKING, SO PLEASE EXCUSE ANY SPELLING ERRORS.
