The Death of Liberty… the body politic infected with the baseness of men

“A Nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious, but it can not survive TREASON FROM  WITHIN…  An enemy at the gates is less formidable for he is known and he carries his banners openly, but the traitor moves among  those within the gate freely.  His sly whispers rustling thru all the galleries, heard in every hall of government itself.  For the traitor appears, not as a traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims and he wears their face and their garments.  He appeals to the BASENESS that lies in the heart of all men.  He rots the soul of a Nation.  He works secretly and unknown in the night, to undermine the pillars of the city.  He INFECTS THE BODY POLITIC, so that it can no longer resist.  A murderer is less to be feared. ” Cicero 42 B.C.

The above words are no less true today, than when first spoken by Cicero… our body politic is infected, with the baseness of men. These traitors speak in familiar accents, they wear the face and garments of our neighbors, but at heart they undermine the pillars of liberty and rot our Nation’s soul.  These political psychopaths lie with impunity and cunning, purchasing pubic favor with promises they can not keep.  They are charismatic and confident, the elite who commit global crimes: mass genocide, generational slavery, and the theft of the wealth of Nations.  Bernie Madoff has nothing on these men.  Aesop said of these men  “We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to high office.”

“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and fearful master.” George Washington.  Governments like fire can be both a blessing or a curse. When government is limited it can help to preserve man’s unalienable rights, but like a fire out of control it can also be the force that can destroy the lives, liberty and property of the people it was created to protect.”

If a society has too much government the people become the subjects of tyrants; while, in societies with too little government, they experience anarchy. For peace, prosperity, and freedom, to be maximized, government must be held in check. In our case, that check was (past tense) the Constitution; when, combined with a well-educated, moral, and vigilant, people, our liberty was secure.  Today the Constitution is ignored and the people have forsaken their moral compass.  The people have been ‘dumbed down’ and apathy rules the body politic of our nation.

Hence, our government is no longer held in check by the chains of its Constitution or a moral and vigilant people.  The Constitution is no longer rigidly enforced by a moral or well-educated and informed people. It is therefore imperative that ‘we the people’, reinstate the traditional values that made our Nation… a City set upon a hill, a beacon of liberty in a world of darkness… The American Dream requires due diligence by a moral, informed, and vigilant, people.

I fear that the candle of our liberty will soon be extinguished… that its source of light no longer rests in the heart of its people; that, our father’s creed and love of liberty, has been lost to an entire generation. America as we knew her is fading in the twilight of her Constitution… A dream extinguished by an ill-informed, immoral people; whose, better judgment has been replaced by the baser values of the mob… who now look to prosper at another’s expense.

“Government is the great fiction thru which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.” Frederick Bastiat.  Our government has in fact proven these words to be true.  The fundamentals of our liberty no longer rest in the hearts and minds of the people. The baser moral values of the mob now rules… as each man looks to prosper at another’s expense.
