They want you to feel helplessSubmitted by dwalters on Thu, 03/20/2014 - 16:08
Too often I hear, "What are we to do? They are so powerful."
Would you like to know why they are so powerful? They are so powerful because too many people believe they are powerful. Without the participation of the people, the tyrants in Washington are nothing more than drunk suits sitting in marble buildings with tacky antiquated architecture bitching that no one listens to their edicts.
Personally, I am glad that Rand Paul has been making headway with the populace. Educating people about liberty - which Rand mostly stands for based on his words - is certainly a noble and necessary cause. However - even if he were to get elected - how much will get done towards liberty once they (attempt to) assassinate him like they did Reagan? Think he'll still be as motivated towards pursuing liberty?
The world is a dynamic place. As situations change, those in power are constantly adapting affected plans to continue their march towards visions of their ideal scientific dictatorship - where medications mask individual desires for the sake of running a well-oiled slavery machine from which they can extract sustenance and wealth.
The tyrants depend on others to be the cogs in their envisaged machine. Without the participation of others, they would be reduced to individuals forced to sustain themselves.
There is nothing special about the tyrants. They are human. Largely, the American Revolution embodied this realization. Divine right does not exist. Every man is equal before the laws of nature.
If people continue to follow their edicts, they are doing nothing more than helping to ensure the enslavement of future generations. Do you want your children and grandchildren to be free? Is it worth taking a stand now? Or, should the can be kicked further down the road?
No violence is required. The system will tear itself apart - if only the People will withdraw their participation and support.
The tyrants' power only exists because enough of you think it exists.
