Never Take Things for Granted
Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.– Samuel Adams
When viewing life, I have found my country, The United States of America, has lost its way from what the Founding Fathers intended. We the people have allowed corrupt power hungry politicians and bureaucrats to slowly enslave us throughout the years. We the People have allowed the Federal government to grow into an overbearing tyrant over the State or the individual. We the People have allowed our government to give preferences and favors to some groups over others. There is no implication that my country did not have its issues from the beginning. However, it is not an excuse to “overcompensate” for those things that occurred in the past. We the People are human and do make mistakes, which is unfortunate. Yet, two wrongs do not make things right. Making one group or entity “more” equal than others is a continuation of past errors taking a new direction.
