Thank you to our contributor J. Robert Hall, for this beautiful essay.
In this government, pulled about by its global duty, we must acknowledge that human character will announce itself. Therefore we must accept that there is obligation to stir movement with our portion of time. Every action or non-action will be documented. The silence of the people should be heard. Those who are fanatical, drown out the voice of civil reason. Our various humanities have become desensitized by the irritating noise in our politics. The chaos and irreverence to our founding beliefs has tarnished the origin of liberty and freedom. This nation is in critical need for common sense leadership. America needs leaders who protect our liberties and provide of culture of prosperity. Leaders that believe, when there is work to be done, Americans can do it.
How can a nation proclaim freedom from the mountain top, when the mountain for which we stand upon is our debt? Our haste to find immediate resolve and rapid reform has incurred a debt we can’t admit too. Short thought reason and anxious illness have been wells to which political dogs have quenched their thirst. Our elected incumbents have had far too few honest attempts at common sense policy, for fear they will not be elected again. So be it, for our founders were not cowards, we require bravery.
The paradigm of our elections is that our citizens have become the subjects of statistical massaging with little truth being revealed about the intent of our party’s core objectives. The people are not afraid to vote for an independent, they are made to fear real change. They speak in volumes of silence, and that is measured by voter turnout and burnout. It is this pattern of modern day dogma that creates a monopoly on the American voter and their true choice. The American who loves liberty must commit to liberty. Liberty is not wealth, but the means to create wealth.
Our government must recognize what it can afford and what it cannot. While our families are forced to flee what they can no longer afford, our politicians find justification in luxuries none of us can afford. We have the affliction of presumed necessity, when most of government expense accounts are the impeccable example of a cash cow. Any company self-sustained and not reliant on intolerable government gouging should be rewarded by incentives. Those who rely on the peoples back should pay a fair tax.
Government cannot sustain itself by calculating on revenues that it literally pays to its self. The regimes we have adopted, and not by true special, must not enable dependence, but endow its loyalist to achieve its own self-reliance.
We should not have government in debate with the constitution. We should have a government, by the people which honors the constitution. A weak government under stress of debts will create a people dependent on its security, and a healthy government void of dependency will empower its people to seek prosperity. Our rights are only to pursue prosperity not to be granted it. A thriving company will only require the simplistic forms of regulation for that is of its spirit.
CURRENT TWO PARTY REGIMES
The American politician of our past decade can be described as our polluted waters. They are a mile wide and an inch deep. There is a time when transformation must be substantial and consequential to those who refuse necessary justice and reconciliation for the debts we have incurred. The kitchen tables and barn door conversations are saturated with doubt and mistrust, fear and disgust. If government collapses it will under the weight of its own decay. A party against only one foe produces a forced singular opposition. In order to gain vote and opinion for one good idea we must now accept the results of more dysfunctional policy. Our nation has kneaded and weaved the policy of two parties for more than two centuries. At the moment of each crisis and conflict the sharpness of pain has lasted just long enough to unite us. We have not been able to break away from seeking egocentric reward for any one politician. The barriers that need to be broken are those of perception. Perception of the people is now controlled by press and political posturing. The manipulation of our voters by untruths and nontransparent agenda’s should be considered an act of viciousness on our liberty. Liberty from tyranny was our original requirement. Liberty from a government that is unable to keep us free is the sole agenda of our generation.
We must all do what we are called to do. The freedom we seek is to make peace with our desire. This is acceptable and simple in theory. Our technology and luxury has become accessible and convenient. We must learn how things work. We must educate ourselves in the anthropology of all we have become. Our history has begun to repeat itself at such a pace we do recognize when we have lapped ourselves. When the farmer had to plow his own field, he was highly educated on every distinct mechanism of his plow. Every bolt and nut was challenged to its efficiency. Our government should be the plow that we the farmer challenge for its effectiveness.
