Another reader asked me to re-address the subject of freedom and government so here you go.  There are many important things to know about freedom and government.  Below are some of what I consider to be the most important ones.

  • Your elected representatives could care less about your opinions and interests unless of course you are a major financial donor.
  • Governments will use fear as a weapon and by doing so, create real or imagined threats that they will claim only the government can solve.
  • Never waive or give up your rights under any circumstances.
  • Strangers are just that, strangers, so do not engage in talking to them about anything private or sensative.
  • Never make an assumption that an expert is really an expert.
  • If you have fundamental differences with certain people it is a waste of time to argue issues, politics or philosophies with them.
  • Avoid the victim mentality.  Take responsibility for your decisions.
  • Consider nothing as true until you have verified it.
  • Freedom means never having to beg the government for your fundamental rights.
  • It is okay not to respect a political office if you don’t respect the person in that office.
  • Draw your line in the sand so that you know what you will and what you won’t tolerate.

  1. I think it’s good to notice that governments are corporations these days. It casts a different light on what we’re supposedly citizens of. Things sure have changed. I guess we wouldn’t have had a Constitution if the founders, who had fundamental differences, didn’t diligently debate the issues. Thanks for letting me add my two cents.

      Always glad to hear from you. If government would get back to what their original intended purpose was and stop trying to micro-manage and nanny state everything; as a country we would be much better off.

    Freedom means being able to act as you wish without others stopping you. Government and freedom cannot exist together period. Definitions, 🙂

    • rmactsc says:

      I have no issue with limited government as long as they stay within their Constitutionally defined rolls. It’s when they try and regulate and dictate every aspect of a persons day to day activities that they have overstepped their bounds.

      • jessemathewson says:

        Unfortunately, all politicians are crooks, and the system is broken beyond repair 😦

      • rmactsc says:

        I’d like to think there is hope for the future if politicians will be held to their campaign promises and if voters will vote on the issues instead of on what the lamestream media tells them to do.

  3. No matter how bad things seem to get, it all boils down to what the people have let the government get away with. Part of the problem is that too many people don’t understand what their rights are and they take everything the media or government tells them for concrete. There seems to be a bunch of animosity among Americans anymore. United we stand divided we fall. And lately this Country seems more and more divided. A few things to remember:

    If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.
    If you don’t help make a difference, then there might not be a difference.
    If you turn the other cheek, don’t be upset when you lose your teeth.
    If you see a problem, don’t wait for others to see it. In fact, make sure they are seeing too.
