This is the reality that most Americans are forgetting to check. They surrender their sovereignty every time they receive a government handout. They surrender their sovereignty every time they allow their representatives to abrogate their God-given rights.
We really need to reclaim what we allowed to be lost - sovereignty and liberty seem to be two sides of the the same coin we've tossed away.
If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
