140. I find myself agreeing with most everything you said..
and sometimes I wonder if things are really as bad as I think they are, or am I just being paranoid? But you're right. America is being dismantled, one liberty at a time. But yet, all our entertainment and the noise from the media serve to distract and drown out what is happening before our eyes. And yes, there is no revolution. If one talks about revolution, they are considered "radical" or a "fringe element," yet where is the outrage over the extension of the Patriot Act, airport screening, countless limits being put on the American People through various laws, etc, that make it hard for the average person to be self-sufficient. By this, I'm talking about such things as not being able to sell unpasturized milk or plant your own food, such things that have been in the media recently. In a neighboring county here, people aren't allowed to dig a well on their property. I don't know about ya'll, but it is alarming to me, when our officials try to prevent us from being able to fend for ourselves.

And sure, I have enjoyed luxuries such as cable, internet and cell phones as much as the next person, but I am also concerned that these very things, as well as media distractions are keeping us from defending liberties. Is it just me or does anyone else crave simpler times? Family time around the table, spending more time outdoors, etc, rather than the couch potato lifestyle?

And I admire our forefathers for standing up for what they believed in. They fought for the rights we have today but are gradually having taken away.

Is there any way to stop what is happening?
