There is no higher TREASON against this country than that of government officials who are openly conspiring to undue our constitution in the name of "keeping us safe." It is the most ABSURD and counter-intuitive suggestion that could be made. It is the equivalent of suggesting that we all burn down our houses to protect ourselves from "the arsonists."
To put this bluntly: If the "Enemy of America" is one who seeks to destroy the remaining freedoms guaranteed by our constitution, that enemy succeeds when, through its deliberate actions, it causes our own government to revoke, alter or restrict the freedoms our government has a constitutional duty to defend.
Make no mistake: When our own government becomes an instrument of the enemy, there can be no distinction between our government and the enemy. Just as we would fight an invading army that promised to shred our Bill of Rights, we must fight those elected officials who dare to suggest we "go along" with their treasonous plan to do the same.
Bigger, more intrusive government CANNOT insure our freedom because its very existence comes at the expense of our freedom. Nor can it insure our safety. A person with no rights, power, or personal responsibility is at the mercy of the centralized entity that controls them. ...we are all weakened by servitude, not empowered by it.
The unacceptable expansion of government and incremental erosion of the "people's power" over it has continued unabated since the passing of the "Income Tax Amendment" and the "Federal Reserve Act" of 1913. With these "twin evils" our government was effectively able to print its own money, expand and spend without the consent of the people, and gradually break the chains of the constitution. The result is now upon us...
How did we get here?
Perhaps the biggest contributor was our failure to think for ourselves; our failure to carefully scrutinize what we've been told. Our failure to question the claims and motives of those who've sought to expand their control over this country as well as their control over those who stood in their way (You and I.)
And if this was the primary cause, then the cure is not too hard to see. We must return the American mindset to one that knows it is our DUTY to scrutinize those in power. Return the American mindset to one that DEMANDS accountability from those in office. ...Return the American mindset to one that fully understands "protecting America" means watching those who have the GREATEST power to destroy Her, and rejecting those who suggest "faith" and blind obedience take precedence over the "truth."
It is now that we must stop this game. We have been intentionally "divided" and conquered. We have been manipulated and turned against one another. We have fallen for the preferred political trick by which the looters can easily Corrupt, Rob and Rule.
FREEDOM, from an excessive and secretive government is the only safety known to man. FREEDOM is the only element that made this country great...Freedom ( not "safety" ) was the founding principle because our Forefathers knew that you cannot achieve the latter without the first.
Before you turn your back on America, realize who you are handing her over to. We know what needs to be done. We know that it will work. We simply need to unite, stop asking liars for the truth, and press on until we have taken back what once was ours: The greatest nation on earth.

"We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness
-- That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that when any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it..."
