“Do good to your friends to keep them, to your enemies to win them.” Benjamin Franklin
Here is an idea. Let’s take 25% of the time that we use to: complain, be hateful, shout at each other, label each other, blame each other, etc. – and instead use that time to work on positive and actionable solutions for this great country.
What good does it do to scream about everything that is wrong? It doesn’t. Sure, it needs to be done, but there are solutions staring at us in our faces and we better use them while we have the freedom to do so.
Children react to the “now” in life and usually in the form of a tantrum – our society has evolved into this type of ‘here and now’ reactionary approach. You can blame the media, the political parties and a variety of other things before you might realize that the Constitution gives you the power to make choices others around the world do not have the privilege to exercise.
Impending food crisis because of rising oil prices? Start growing your own food!
Tired of the same old political rants? Denounce the two party system and seek out representatives that cling to liberty instead of the almighty “R” and “D”.
Worried about your finances? Understand that you do have the power to do whatever you want to do – you must believe in yourself and do not let anyone tell you any different.
Angry at injustice, loss of liberty, and poverty? Read the Constitution, Frédéric Bastiat’s The Law, and Leonard E. Read’s I Pencil. Then, learn about your community, your sheriff, and your local politics. Then, understand the power of states’ rights (read Thomas Wood’s Nullification), and join WeRefuse.com. Lastly, become a farmer, start your own small business, run for office, and take your life into your own hands. It is your liberty to do so – use it.
