The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

Can we really govern ourselves?

Can we really govern ourselves?


It has been said by some, and not entirely without reason, that the American experiment in self-governance is failing.  Is it?  Are we incapable of the virtues required of sovereign citizens?

The founding principle of American civics is that "we the people" govern ourselves.  As self-governing citizens, we ensure that the government does not rule over us, but rather that it act under us.  It is neither our parent nor our provider, but our subordinate.  We call the shots.  The government follows our orders.  Our representatives represent us – not themselves, not their donors.

Has all that become a pipe dream?

Perhaps as a nation we never did fully achieve the ideal of self-governance, but at least it was always the ideal.  It was a goal toward which we could strive.  That principle is now in serious danger.

The ascendant ideal is that of socialism.  Its creed can be summed up as follows:  I am entitled.  The government owes me a living.  I have a right to free stuff.  That – not social justice, not equal opportunity, not even black lives mattering – is at the core of the socialist movement.  Gimme.  If not, then I will riot and loot.

Socialism is on the rise, and its roots are sinking ever deeper into the social fabric.  Education, entertainment, and even religious institutions are indoctrinating our fellow citizens.  There is no reasoning with socialists, because when you try to speak, they shout you down, and that in itself is the harbinger of tyranny.

As matters now stand, we are not governing ourselves.  We are being ruled by a distant and largely unaccountable officialdom that operates mostly out of our view.  This system is supported by a bloc of voters who are appallingly ignorant of basic civics.  People who cannot raise their own children are allowed to vote, and the people for whom they vote tax you to pay for their children.

One must sadly conclude, then, that there is no political solution to our political problems.

Can we reverse course?  We can.  Instead of complaining about our failure to govern ourselves, we should examine the possible corrective actions.

First, it is necessary to restore citizenship to its constitutional roots.  Birthright citizenship was never the bedrock of civic entitlement, but only one of several considerations.  Not just anyone could vote.  Initially, only landowners could do so. 

While I am not suggesting that real estate is the foundation of citizenship, I would make at least one critical requirement for anyone to be a voter.  That requirement would be that every voter must pass the same test that foreign applicants for citizenship must pass.  Presently, most voters would fail that test, many of them miserably.

Citizenship founded upon basic knowledge of the Constitution would be a good start.  The rest might then, hopefully, take care of itself.
