If We're Not Free, Can We Have Some Full and Honest Disclosure?Submitted by vinceableworld on Tue, 01/15/2013 - 13:09
That post inspired the following comment/post. Can we have a full and open debate?
If we're not REALLY free shouldn't we just take "free" out of the national anthem? Oh that's right... we can't do that. If you actually SAY people are not free then there will be a definite armed revolution TOMORROW... and I'm definitely not advocating for that.
As long as the flag doesn't change, everything's cool. Settle down people. You are free... as long as you get permission first for anything you want to do. You are free to travel, free to work, free to eat whatever you want, free to put whatever you want into your body, free to speak, free to bear arms, free to worship as you choose, free to self-govern, free to start your own business, free to use your private property as you choose, free to associate with others... we have so many freedoms.
Let's not forget most importantly, you are free to have anyone you want and trust to defend you in a court of law against your accusers... in case you get busted for not asking permission first before exercising one of your freedoms.
I wonder if the people in Hitler's Germany were "free?"
I wonder if the Chinese are "free?"
I wonder if the people in the USSR were "free?"
Kinda makes you wonder huh? Forgive me if I seem out of line here... and if it's okay to say this... it really seems... like... the only freedom we have is a definition of "freedom" in the dictionary.
When was the last time you looked the word "freedom?" That's probably a good place to start in order to really figure this out. Next we should probably look up the definition of "slavery." Does this all seem logical to anyone else?
(I sure hope they haven't changed the definitions yet).
Proposal: Feb 1st is "Freedom Day"
What if we were to get the word out to everyone in the freedom movement... now this isn't going to work without MASS COMMITMENT. Now please don't point any fingers at anyone else. What about you? Will you stand together with the free people? What if on that day we decided that from that day fourth we will NO LONGER ask permission for anything we want to do and just reverted back to common law on our own? What if we threw out ALL our "licenses" on that day and just did whatever we wanted to do because we are responsible adults?
What if we had 10 million people that simply "opted out" of all the tyranny all at the same time? What if we all stood up at once? I think the answer to that is the same as will YOU stand up with everyone else? Do you think our SERVANTS would FINALLY get the MESSAGE that WE have the RIGHT to be FREE in this country and that they are our SERVANTS... and WE ARE THE MASTERS?
...and how fast would the "government" shrink back to its originally intended constitutional size?
Look I'm not popular around here... so this message is copyright FREE - take the idea and make it yours. We can be FREE if we really want to and are all ready to stand up for each other in one coordinated effort. This is peaceful non-violent NEVER TAKE A PLEA independence. I think we can do it... if the right individuals in the movement were to take this message and run with it.
