Are we truly free....Or are we slaves with hidden shackles

Are we truly free....Or are we slaves with hidden shackles

So the conditions that existed to create the Declaration of Independence and the actions by our founding fathers are no less relevant today than they were at the time of our Independence.

"No taxation without representation" you actually truly believe that you have a say or representation in your government outside of your local community? When were you ever consulted on all these actions being taken? When did you give consent for any of the arbitrary and unconstitutional laws or regulations you get the pleasure of experiencing on a daily basis? Just because you have the illusion of choice, it doesn't mean you are actually represented.

Taxes? You pay a tax to earn income, when you decide to spend that income, when you use that income to "own" something you must pay a tax to own it (in other words you rent it's use from some "authority"), and then heaven forbid you decide to leave something to your loved ones when you die...that gets taxed.

A corrupt justice system and a two tiered justice system that favored the well-to-do and political officials of that time...any casual observance today will give you an answer to that.

Government agents and enforcers were able to declare goods illegal on a whim in the colonies? Oh and that doesn't happen now and at any time you couldn't be the victim of a changed definition or made up rule on any aspect of your life?

Yeah you may not have Soldiers being housed in your home, but that doesn't make you any more free. Your private interactions and correspondence is being monitored and at any point in time your life can and will be ruined very quickly by a rogue (and unconstitutional) agency and federal action if you happen to run afoul of them.

If evils are sufferable, you need to suffer through it because arbitrarily changing a system thru whatever radical change in the established system almost always lends to more suffering.

There is no dark tower to storm and solve these problems like some movie. The answer lies within your local community. They need you, your talents, your attention, and your give-a-damn more than any other job or agency. The time of you sitting in your position, earning a wage that's juuuuust enough to allow you comfort, caring about the bread and circuses dangled in front of you, and doing nothing to make things better is quickly coming to an end...

"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 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
Your local community needs you.
