Just what are we celebrating today?

We won our independence from England but do we really have any of our freedoms left?

After 1865 the American government’s “just” powers were no longer derived from the consent of the governed, as Jefferson so eloquently stated in the Declaration of Independence, but by the whims of politicians and bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. and enforced by their “supreme” court and their military and police state apparatus.

The Jeffersonians had long warned that if the day ever came that everyone’s constitutional liberty depended on the pronouncements of a few government lawyers with lifetime tenure, Americans would then live under a tyranny. That tyranny arrived in 1865 and was celebrated by future tyrants such as “progressive” icon Woodrow Wilson who, in his early twentieth-century book on congress, wrote approvingly about how, with the effective abolition of federalism, states’ rights, the Tenth Amendment, and especially the rights of secession and nullification, the limits of liberty were indeed in the hands of those five politically-appointed government lawyers with lifetime tenure. The wolf was finally in charge of “guarding” the sheep and has been ever since.

    Excellent read. I sit and read and find I enjoy your take on many topics. Thanks for sharing bits and bobs to this old senior NCO.

    1. Thank you, Dusty. I appreciate your comment very much. I’ve always thought that people who lived in Central Europe or the Near East were uniquely unfortunate in being smack in the crossroads of whatever Mongol horde or ambitious nut case with an army happened to be in the neighborhood. Now I know how they felt except with us the invading pathogen is not an army but a stupid, ghastly ideology and its zealous its adherents bent on reforming our world in pursuit of some dumbass Plan for Human Uplift. Who knew that America was destined to be a host to millions of aggressive Muslims and other third-worlders? That will play out sooner rather than later as the Iron Laws of Arithmetic play out while the dreamers are dreaming.

      So . . . it’s interesting to shine a light where I can on this invasion. It’s been miraculously well hidden as Joe McCarthy noticed.

      We should revive that old PSA with the Indian shedding a tear for some environmental degradation only this time it would be some white guy shedding a tear at the passing of our Great Experiment into the trash bin. Like the photo of that French guy crying as he watched the Germans march into Paris. Maybe the coming Republican sweep in November will happen but even then do you think that Marjorie Taylor Greene represents the GOP? Hah. More like Mitch, Miss Lindsey, McCarthy, Cornyn and the usual crew of bedwetters.
