“ ... all experience hath shewn , that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.” These words, written in the Declaration of Independence, were a stark warning that if we sit back and do nothing when we know what needs to be done, we will surely lose our freedom and liberty and thusly our capitalistic, free-market, independent way of life. They went on to sternly urge us to rise up and rid ourselves of a despotic government and go back to a form that better suits our desires as a free people. They then went on to tell us that this is not only a necessity, but it is our ‘duty’ as citizens.

I believe that we have reached a point in our history that requires us to alter our government or live with the consequences. In previous blogs I described the coming of socialism as a ‘creeping curse’. Simply stated, so many incremental happenings will occur that are acceptable to many of us, who are historically ignorant, believe we will never be affected. These ‘happenings’ are currently in other areas of the country and will never happen here. This is historically false. I’ve got bad news for you, they are about to come to a neighborhood or community near you if you personally do not take a public stand!

Let’s take a look at just a few things that have already taken place that the average person in Wilson County believes is wrong but don’t believe it has anything to do with disturbing their normal way of life.

· Education. Already historical facts have been eliminated from many textbooks and made more politically correct to advance a socialist view in the minds of our most valuable assets. In college, liberal professors, as a percentage of all faculty, range up to 90% of all professors. Of those, 75% believe in, admit, and teach, socialistic ideology.
· The government, your tax dollars, now own large percentages of auto companies, insurance companies, and financial companies. Government pulls the strings. They no longer can be considered as free enterprise, free-market in their decision making.
· Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac now own over 80% of all home mortgages in the U.S. They are both failed government enterprises.
· ObamaCare is the major hold up in private entrepreneur investment in new products, ideas, and job creation. They simply fear what the government will do to them next.
· The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has made a decision that Boeing Corporation can not build a facility in South Carolina that will employ over a 1,000 workers. The reason ... Boeing will not agree to hire all union workers. Boeing has already explained that the hiring of non-union workers takes absolutely no jobs in Seattle away from their current union workforce. They go on to state that the South Carolina jobs will be all new workforce ... jobs added to the economy.
· The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is instituting Cap & Trade rulings on coal fired utility companies and coal production companies themselves. It’s estimated that eventually over 10% of our electrical grid in the country will be affected and many of those facilities will go out of business and create even more unemployment. Where is the nearest coal fired energy producer that’s supplying your home’s energy needs? If this action happened from a source outside our borders, we would consider the move as terrorism! They are doing this even though the legislative branch of our government flatly refused to pass Cap & Trade laws! The EPA decision is strictly unconstitutional.
· The EPA is now considering changing the rules for dust and noise pollution created by our country’s farmers and ranchers. Getting close to home yet?
· Our government, under pressure from environmentalists, shut down the entire San Jauquin valley in California in order to divert water to Southern California. The valley produces almost 20% of our countries fruits and vegetables and employees over 40,000 people. They did this to save a bait fish (certain type of mullet) from extinction. The fruit trees and all the vegetables died off and 40,000 people lost their jobs. Many of those farmers lost their farms. Right here in WestTexas, drillers were ordered to stop or curtail drilling in order to save an endangered species ... the sand lizard! Getting closer to home? News flash ... 96% of all animal and plant species that have ever lived on earth are now extinct. We seem to be unaware that this has been a natural process since the beginning of the world. Of course to admit this is natural, we’d have to admit the existence of our Creator and is therefore not in our hands, wouldn’t we?
· The green movement is a huge money maker for private individuals and government alike. We are continually insisting that we can control the climate of this planet, which is entirely false. So what does the government do, it supplies funding (you tax dollars) to a company in Massachusetts called Evergreen. A month or two ago, Evergreen went bankrupt ... gone are your tax dollars and hundreds of jobs. Later, both the president and vice president gave taped speeches on how wonderful a company named Solyndra, to be established in California, would be to developing alternative green energy and enable us to get off of coal and oil. They gave Solyndra $535 million dollars of the stimulus funds (again, your tax dollars) to the development of this alternative energy. Just yesterday, Solyndra announced that it could not development this source in a reasonable, efficient, and cost effective way and that they were filing for bankruptcy. There went another half of one billion dollars of your tax monies down the eternal government tubes. Not to mention another 1,100 jobs added to the unemployment roles!
· Just last month, the President of the United States declared that we would look for and deport those illegal persons in our country who are criminals. They will be deported. But, all the remainder of the illegals need not worry. They will not be arrested and made to go through the hoops to be here legally. No matter how you try to spin this, it’s amnesty, or at least leading toward an amnesty program. He literally ignored (broke) Congressional (Constitutional) law that has been on our books for decades. He never even asked the Congress to reconsider the current law and adjust it to make his decision legal! In other words, he broke the law by placing himself above the law. This action was truly unconstitutional and nobody has of yet taken him to task! He took an oath to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the country. Quite frankly, that was the action of a dictator and not of a president of a free country guided by law.
· Now on a more personal note. Say you came home one afternoon and saw three wild and extremely dangerous animals entering your back yard where your young children were at play. What would you do? Would you not grab your rifle and kill at least one them scaring the other two away? Well, last week a man named Jeremy Hill in Idaho came home to just such a situation. Three grizzly bears were entering his back yard where his young children were at play. He grabbed his rifle and shot one of them. The animal died instantly and the other two were scared away. He grabbed his kids and took them into to the house. He called the Idaho state authorities and told them what he had done. They didn’t seem all that upset. But, due to the federal endangered species laws, they were required to inform the government. Mr. Hill was immediately contacted by the Feds and charged with killing an animal on the endangered species list in Idaho. He now faces a court case which, if found guilty, is punishable by one year in prison and/or a $50,000 fine. Sounds reasonable to me?

There are thousands of more instances of ridiculous government intrusions into the private lives of ordinary citizens. No common sense involved whatsoever. What have we become? Just where do you believe all this is leading. If you don’t know this is the ‘creeping curse’ in action then you are simply living on another planet far, far from earth.

If all these thing mentioned above are just fine by you, just sit back and relax. It’s coming sooner than you think unless the owners of the country take action. Just remember, socialism tends to be forever. It’s your choice. Make the right one. Remember the warning of our founders ... “Tyranny can only occur when good men do nothing”.
