How did we come to this after everything our ancestors fought for? How have we become a nation that is so focused on everyone elseĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s business and what is right and wrong, to impose law on everyone else for our beliefs?
Everyone MUST wear a seatbelt?
Everyone MUST wear a helmet?
You MUST put a label on a mower that says Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“DonĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t put hands or feet under mower while in operation?
You MUST put a label on everything that can possibly affect you in 1 way or another, from fat content of a bag of chips to the hazards of swallowing gasoline!
No matter where you are at there is a government law that says you canĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t do this or thatĂ˘â‚¬Â¦
We have finally done it! We have reverted back to the days of the Redcoats and American militiaĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ We have done it as individuals and as a societyĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ We have the right to sign petitions to control everyone elseĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s livesĂ˘â‚¬Â¦
It doesnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t take too much to put the ball in motionĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ All you need is a couple of thousand signatures to get your wants and desires added to a bill, in fine print no less, to make it a lawĂ˘â‚¬Â¦
There was a post out here that toyed with the idea of giving our individual right to vote to a congressman or senatorĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ This would essentially say that the congressman or senator that was elected for each state would have the right to make the decision on who would be presidentĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ Once we elect these officials, we would have no say in who would be president. Geez! How smart is that?
We, as a nation, have given TOO MUCH power to the federal government! And this is just not making laws, but we expect them to take care of us, in time of need like Social security, disaster response/recovery, being out of a job, seatbelts, spending cash (limit of 9,999.99), and on and onĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ Do we as individuals depend on our government to take care of us when hardship happens? If they donĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t, where are we then?
We have no one to blame but ourselvesĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ When one person gets a hair up their ###, they find a few that agree and boom! New law!!!
We, as a nation are greedy and spoiled! 85% of the population could not survive if it depended on their abilities to survive without helpĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ How many people do you know that could find alternative means of survival if we lost electricity? Think about it! How many can garden? How many will hunt for food/meat? How many could not go a week without toilet paper, light, cooking, no grocery stores, no gasoline or waterĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ and on and onĂ˘â‚¬Â¦
Think about the ships at sea that rely on GPSĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ How many people do you think there are that can still navigate with a sexton?
We have been dumbed down throughout the centuriesĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ We are relying too much on our government to do things for us. They have the power nowĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ We gave it to themĂ˘â‚¬Â¦ How can we change it? Can we change it?
I am sure that when our forefathers drew up the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and other documents that govern our nation, they didn't have this in mind...
