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.

We are reaching a point in this country where we are going to have to make a decision; do we think that people can take care of themselves or do we think that we need the government to take care of us? If it is the latter we will see our rights erode and be replaced with the "security" the government promises us.
Personally I hope we make the right decision, the decision for freedom, next November or we may never reverse this trend.

Great post Ron! I agree with Steve, we are rapidly approaching a point where those who embrace individualism are tired of have their rights encroached upon by the collectivist. I think the Tea Party are the early stages of push back. When you have two opposing forces something will eventually have to give.

It's time to say goodbye to the foolish donkeys and charging RINOs in the next elections. The donkeys keep kicking over everything that will help our country succeed, and the RINOs turn on those of us who do anything to repair the damage the donkeys inflict on us.

Did you hear about the campaign treasurer who got arrested in California (Kinde Durkee of Durkee and Associates)? Some big name Democrats got their campaign war chests robbed and plucked to the bones...Diane Feinstein, Loretta Sanchez are two of her many victims. It's time for the GOP to go for the jugular, and move fast, while the liberals are down.

"FREEDOM IS AN INDIVIDUAL THING AND FREEDOM TO MAKE THE RIGHT OR WRONG DECISION IS THE MOST CRITICAL PART OF IT."

Indeed, today they tell us we can't make the wrong decision and it may actually be good for us, but tomorrow they can make us do what they perceive is right and so out goes the right to really choose anything, and i mean anything.

I've thought about this myself. I just hope we can beat back the beast a little longer.
