Our current government is revealing itself to be the total antithesis to freedom, independence and sovereignty in America. Now “America’s chickens are comin’ home to roost.”
In the opinion of Ralph Reiland, Associate Professor of Economics @ Robert Morris University, “We’re all going to be sitting in the dark before it’s over.”
In my opinion all existing homes should convert to a back-up generator system, a fuel supply tank, and a water cistern and green water systems. Every new house should be required to be built with these improvements in mind, if for no other reason than to handle short or even long term weather emergencies. But more importantly, to help secure our freedoms which are based in independence from the need for any help, especially in emergencies.
Government help means government control and that is the opposite of freedom. Our founding fathers were fully aware of the concept of the individual in charge of his own life, liberty and happiness and the importance of defining these things with individual sovereignty and the freedom to travel at the core.
Our founding fathers knew the danger of trading freedom for security:
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
--- Samuel Adams
"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence,"
--- John Adams
"The principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale,"
--- Thomas Jefferson
"If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify."
--- Alexander Hamilton
Or in other words, If you push us far enough, we have every right and even a sworn duty to push back by whatever means are appropriate, including, but not limited to, the “right to bear arms” – 2nd Amendment.
