Have we as a nation forgotten why the United States was formed? Have we forgotten why the governments roll in our everyday lives was minimized? Have we forgotten that the cornerstone of our democracy is the independence of the individual and not dependence on and suppression by our government?
It is clear that those in "leadership" roles in our government today have forgotten. It is clear that they feel the Constitution is simply a nuisance that they must deal with in their pursuit of unilateral power.
We are now faced with numerous scandals concerning abuse of power, selective enforcement of laws and outright dismissal of public interest.
And the lies that are blanketed atop the truth are not being removed by a media which has become nothing more than an extension of the government interest. A media that was once there for the people is now there to control the people.
This is most evident when looking to coverage of events that transpire where the media predisposes its position. Regardless of evidence, the media burrows through the bowels of society in order to purport its own prejudicial desires. This remains in direct line with the current administrations position of divisive culture.
A country once united is being dismantled from the inside by a lack of leadership, a divide and conquer rhetoric and a singular focus of ultimate power.
On this Independence Day I ask you to declare your independence from the media. Sure, watch your news, listen to your radio, read your papers , etc., but when all is said and done do your own research. Go to the source and free yourself from the slanted reports. You may not like what you see, but you will be liberated from the brainwashing media.
It is not good enough that you get two different points of view on a subject. I have heard that argument before. The fact is that if someone says a flower is red and someone says the flower is yellow, you cannot decide the flower is orange. You need to see the flower for yourself.
Take the time. Do the research. Read the bills that they are trying to pass. Make the attempt to educate yourselves. Give yourselves the gift of freedom this Independence Day that can only come from the knowledge of truth.
