We Are Not Pawns, We Are Not Pawns
“Please help us. Oh great lords in Congress and the White House, please save us from ourselves. We know not what we do. We are helpless. Please give us jobs. Please give us money. Please give us healthcare. Please give us food. Please give us homes. Please give us green automobiles. Please give us cellphones. Please give us internet access…”
Have you heard anything like this before? Well you have. It was the 2008 US elections.
My friends, the root of our problems are not created by our government. Our government was elected voluntarily. Our problems today are created from weakness. Weakness screaming the words above. Look to those around you, the children in adult bodies, those citizens (and businesses) who give up and are looking for handouts. They don’t know who provides it, they don’t realize that it’s being taxed and taken from you, while you are out there struggling, and I doubt they care. It doesn’t matter what kind of constitution document we have in place, when people get weak, they’re going to reach for mommy. Those who want mommy to help them end up enslaving the rest of us in their demands to be spoon fed. It is weakness and short sightedness that’s leading to the growing government control of our lives, the growing government takeover of the economy, the growing government spending of our future, and the rapid decline in our control over how we live our own lives.
The weak want rulers.
It’s easier. If you’ve lost self control, might as well let someone else take the reigns. Weakness breeds government policy that supports and encourages more weakness. If it spreads further it elects more planners and rulers.
The path to turn this country around is to breed strength. People must discover what they’re capable of. That they can be valuable. That crutches are dead weight that they don’t need, when they’re each capable of flying.
The strong demand more freedom.
They don’t need handouts. They don’t need master planners. They’re capable. They’re productive.
Just imagine what kind of government and society we would have if we truly had a nation yelling:
“We Are Not Pawns. I’m not a fucking chess piece. Stop taxing us. Stop regulating us. Stop spending our future. Stop stimulating us. Stop supporting us. Stop taking care of us. Stop planning our lives. Just give us some space. And STOP. We Are Not Pawns.”
