Losing Security, Comfort and Freedom

Gary Kelly

June 7, 2021


Imagine if you will a country, that in the first two paragraphs of its founding document, implemented a nation of freedom and liberty, which provided for a Constitutional Republic of laws and representation, based upon Biblical precepts, and "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God," and established how "Rights" were to be "entitled."


That sure foundation is being abandoned with attempts to re-write the true history of our founders’ intent. "We the people" are being duped into electing "progressive" secular "reprobate minds," which use deceptive fallacies, and crafted terms of contradiction, such as "social justice and equality." The result is subjecting our children to abominations causing dire mental anguish and health risks, aided by the collusion of "educators" bent on indoctrinating our youth.


"It is not our duty to leave wealth to our children; but it is our duty to leave liberty." --John Dickinson


Indoctrination is also leaving our children to deal with Socialism which diminishes free market enterprise that expands wealth. Socialists will have us continue to mandate taxes to rob Peter to pay Paul.


“Wealth is the only thing that can cure poverty. The reason there is less poverty today is not because the poor got a bigger slice of the pie, but because the whole pie got bigger – no thanks to the left.” –Thomas Sowell


Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of America’s slide into Socialism is the apathy and complacency of "We the people" and taking advantage of by despotic judges, mainstream and social media, professors, and many government-run schools.


The manufactured "Trump derangement syndrome" apparently has many voters, whether they realize or not, voting for Socialism and further destroying the foundation of America’s Constitutional Republic.


If in fact voters do realize they are voting to “fundamentally transform" America from "We the people" into serfs serving a corrupt government of tyrannical elites, may their children forgive them. 


Otherwise voters can no longer cower and remain feeble and timid discussing “religion and politics.” Without confronting those who vote for tyranny and Socialism, by challenging unfounded emotions with facts, logic and history, it will be our own future generations that suffer the consequences.


“If the battle for civilization comes down to the wimps verses the barbarians, the barbarians are going to win.” –Thomas Sowell


Voters are confronted with choosing Biblical moral virtue or the “progressive moral compass” for their own future generations, whether to ignore the science of biology and the laws of nature or not.


"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life and they lost it all - security, comfort and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society, but for society to give to them; when the freedom they wished for most was the freedom from responsibility, then the Athenians ceased to be free." ~ Edward Gibbons
