for real I ask this question, and probably in the process am sacrificing my freedom. I just can’t tell anymore who our government tells us are terrorist actually are and where they are. As each day passes I am becoming convinced that the REAL terrorists are in Washington DC. A perfect example that feeds this feeling is HERE. Little by little we have been losing our rights. Subtly at first but still losing them all the same.
And some ask the questions of when and how did this all start? Good questions, and as best as I can figure out this trend began with Franklin Delano Roosevelt. When FDR passed the social security act which was part of the New Deal of 1934-36, also known to some as the first entitlement laws, that was the beginning of our loss of freedom. We all know in order to draw social security when we retire we much have a social security number. That number gives our government access to our private lives. HERE is a history of the social security numbers and how they were issued.
At the time FDR did what he had to in order to aid the recovery of a nation still spinning from the great depression of 1929. HERE is the history of the New Deal and how it is impacting us today. My adoptive parents lived thru the great depression and I remember dad telling me how bad it really was. I think FDR is why my father was a life long democrat. FDR gave something to the men of this nation that they had been robbed of when the depression hit; he gave them pride in themselves again.
I have no doubt the intentions were good, by both the president and the congress, however when people don’t have to work for what they get laziness becomes the order of the day. What started as a means to help folks in the long run is making most Ameicans slaves to the government. If FDR could have seen into the future I believe he would have played it a lot differently.
When I say slaves to the government I am not exaggerating the statement. For every entitlement we receive as citizens it gives the government more of a choke hold on us the individuals. If you receive food stamps the day may come when they turn off the supply for something derogatory you may or may not have said about the president, administration or government. If you think I am exaggerating the point think back to when George W Bush was in office and the whole patriot act came into play after the 9/11 “attacks”. Remember everything that stemmed from that, such as the concept of a national id card or chip. That administration was all for it. Using the same thing they had been using since 9/11. Security of the people meant loss of freedom and constitutional rights. The companies tried to sell it as a means for medical personal to have real time access to your medical records. It didn’t go anywhere. I pray it never does.
Since Bush has left office things have only gotten worse. And now the question is this; how much worse is it going to get before we stand up and take back what our founding fathers left for us. How many of fathers, brothers, mothers and sisters died for nothing before we do something?
Also, where are the REAL terrorists? In the middle east with olive skin praying to Allah or in Washington DC? Until we identify the real terrorists we don’t stand a chance. However, there may be a bright spot on the horizon, aside from the removal of Obama from office. Some of the states are telling Obama to shove his 1021 and 1022 riders that John McCain et al added to the 2012 NDAA law. See HERE for more information on the states taking control of their lives.
