The Road to Serfdom
It is more than a little scary how over the decades we have forfeited our freedom for what we assume is safety. Ever since the founding of our nation the people have slowly given up the freedoms that our founders fought for just to gain a little security. As evidenced in this short video the people have handed over their hard-earned treasure to the several hundred politicians who have used the threat of a mob like institution, the IRS, to steal from the citizens of this country.
As much as we want to kid ourselves we own nothing, our possessions are only on loan to us even though we used our own resources to acquire them. You may think that you own your home, your car or other personal belongings but fail to pay your taxes and see how long it is before the government, either federal or state, comes and take them away from you. We are no longer a free people; we are all slaves to those we elected to represent us.
How has this come about? We continue to elect representatives that look out for one thing and one thing only and that is power and wealth. The only way they achieve these is to take from others. Why do we allow this, because we think that we as a people are incapable of providing for our own security? We have become a nation of cowards that are willing to forgo our freedom for temporary safety. Whether you are white, black, yellow, straight or gay, you are a slave to those who are in power. Until the citizens of this country decide otherwise, we will continue to head down the road to serfdom. Wake up America before it is too late.
