Assault weapons, super predators, background checks, etc. etc. etc.… When is enough, enough? After every tragedy hordes of people petition our government to tax us more, incarcerate more and slash our rights more. From the temperance movement to today, more and more are jumping on the bandwagon demanding that their rights start where ours end. It’s an asinine idea that we require less rights today than we had yesterday. With blatant incompetence at the local, state and federal level, all we hear is “we need to fix the system so this never happens again”. How many mulligans do we grant our government that we cannot grant ourselves? The Internal Revenue Service surely and rapidly assaults an audit upon all of us if there are any questions, try to call them for a follow-up or clarification, good luck!
It seems to me that these regulations and laws do nothing to protect us, the survivors, the ones who remain. If anything, they only continue to advance the trampling of our rights and our freedom as citizens. Is there any transparency anymore? Is there any follow-up or oversight that is actually conducted? Sure, they’ll conduct a soft investigation into a department or agency, but there is never anyone held accountable since they all retire or move on to another level of government where they will escape from sight and recourse for the time being.
Assault, super, checks, buzzwords that sound menacing or ensuring, but mere words that are designed to strike fear into our hearts while we hurriedly dial 911. Our government does not answer to us, they simply retire at the first sign of trouble and collect their pension from our taxes, it’s in their contract.
Our nation was constructed in such a fashion that the government was in servitude to its citizens. However; with decades of weaponized dry and boring speeches, they up until 2008 have flown under the radar. It is only in recent times that politics has become somewhat entertainment. More are inspired now, nevertheless; the government has grown to a point of national atrophy. The nation of citizens is weaker now while the government has intervened in almost every aspect of our lives. We need the motivated citizens to once again rise up and grapple the government back into submission. We need to once again gain superiority over our governors and legislators. If we fail to grasp control, we will lose it forever. We need to win it back now through leadership and stewardship.
Our government and its agencies are cunning and shrewd, they will delegitimize us if we continue to present them the opportunity.
