The Bible has the answer - always! And our founders knew it. It's We the People!
1Samuel 14:38-45 And Saul said, Draw ye near hither, all the chief of the people: and know and see wherein this sin hath been this day.
39 For, as the LORD liveth, which saveth Israel, though it be in Jonathan my son, he shall surely die. But there was not a man among all the people that answered him.
40 Then said he unto all Israel, Be ye on one side, and I and Jonathan my son will be on the other side. And the people said unto Saul, Do what seemeth good unto thee.
41 Therefore Saul said unto the LORD God of Israel, Give a perfect lot. And Saul and Jonathan were taken: but the people escaped.
42 And Saul said, Cast lots between me and Jonathan my son. And Jonathan was taken.
43 Then Saul said to Jonathan, Tell me what thou hast done. And Jonathan told him, and said, I did but taste a little honey with the end of the rod that was in mine hand, and, lo, I must die.
44 And Saul answered, God do so and more also: for thou shalt surely die, Jonathan.
45 And the people said unto Saul, Shall Jonathan die, who hath wrought this great salvation in Israel? God forbid: as the LORD liveth, there shall not one hair of his head fall to the ground; for he hath wrought with God this day. So the people rescued Jonathan, that he died not.
Sometimes people need to come to the aid of someone who is clearly being persecuted and abused regardless of whether they are perfect.
We the People created a government to serve We the People, not themselves. THEY are the ones to be held in check. We have established courts and Sheriffs to hold in check other sovereigns (people) who abuse one of us. The governments responsibility is to aid us in that endeavor when it is necessary, NOT to control us or work against us.
It is time We the People stand up and quit being lazy and complacent when one of our fellow Citizens is being abused and his/her rights trampled by those who are required to take an oath or affirmation to support, defend and protect our rights.
We have been dumbed down by our public school system, the media and politicians who have lost sight of their role as public SERVANTS. We have become complacent and apathetic. That is pathetic! No more! Away with just talking and emailing. It is time for action. Time to stand!
Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
