7. It's not just this specific incident, it's the inexorable move to an organization that has rules or

 

laws that govern ever thing a person might do.

We the People threw off the yoke of a monarch anointed by the leader of the state religion to declare each and every one of us was his subject and declared each of us was a sovereign unto our self.

Later in the Articles of Confederation and its successor our Constitution we created a government with limited powers retaining some rights and powers for ourselves.

It really makes me angry that some would claim We the People do not have natural, inherent, inalienable/unalienable rights; only privileges granted by an omnipotent, omniscience central government.

Now to trump the omni-government that threatens us we close the door to individual freedom in favor of corporations.



They kept taking

First they took our steel mill jobs, and the people ignored the cries of steel mill workers.

Then they took our textile jobs, and the people ignored the cries of textile workers.

Then they took our automotive jobs, and the people ignored the cries of automotive workers.

Then they took our high-tech jobs, and the people ignored the cries of high-tech workers.

Then they bribed the people's representatives in Washington and the people ignored their loss.

And the only jobs left were in the U.S. Foreign Legion, defending the worldwide assets of those who had taken the people's jobs and stolen the people's government.

The people shouted, "We the people are dead, long live the corporation."

And the high priests of Mammon laughed about how easy it was to destroy the world's longest running, most successful experiment in democracy.

And the thirsty and hungry and sick and imprisoned and naked prayed to Mammon to have mercy on their wretched. miserable bodies because the people had lost the very soul of democracy.
