Other nations might have more natural resources and labor numbers, but we have had the riches of Liberty, to do more, and become more, with whatever we have.
Tragically, we've been told, again and again, that ONCE someone is elected to a certain titled position, AND swears an oath to uphold and defend some old piece of paper, with their hand on an even older book, in front of God and everyone; that THEN they are mostly free to forget votes and voters, that Good and Holy Book, their Law-of-the-Land Contract agreement; and pretty much do whatever they want; gambling against all odds, and then signing both our property and even our very lives, ON, as their corporate collateral. Their top priorities are to, (a) get themselves reelected, (b) not go to jail, and (c) not get shot.
Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
