Freedom is not free! The Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights are the most important articles of Americas’ Liberty. The Amendments beyond the tenth focus much less on the rights of the people and much more on the power of the state. In a free society, such as the framing of our Constitutional Republic, Independence and Peoples’ Rights are ratified by God. They are unalienable! Starting with the Eleventh Amendment to the Constitution, ratified February 7, 1795, it was the state that began ratifying successive amendments; as it turns out, to increase their power. Simply put, the first ten amendments aren’t amendments at all; they are original (The Bill of Rights) truths set forth with Liberty for the people as their framework. Draw your own conclusions from these statements, here we will endeavor to lay the groundwork for how we got to this point and then restoring that framework in the name of Liberty for all.
As America descends down this road towards tyranny manufactured by the forces of evil, those who fail to study and understand history, will perish. Under cover of providing security for the people, the banksters and corporate fascists have and will create 1) problems; analyze the peoples’ 2) reaction; then appear as their savior with their 3) solution. Freedom-loving people who have studied history know of this manipulation. In their attempts to inform others of this sequence, they are outcast as ‘whackos, delusional and extremist’ by the majority who are usually self-centered to the point of only caring about their own security and what-have-you-done-for-me-lately attitude.
These folks are not free because they are looking to someone or something else to provide for them and it is this reliance on other than oneself that makes one dependent. It was also this attitude that has been recognized by oligarchs throughout history who, no doubt thought to themselves, “how ignorant are these people?” “They think they’re entitled to something so let’s be the ones to give it to them, then we can control them.” One present day term for this is Entitlement Programs; and there are thousands of them in America. Simply put, if one is dependent on another, that person won’t know what to do when that source of dependency goes away. And again, history tells us that it will.Details
