Proud To Be An American?

Semper Fi. Always faithful.

I saw this in a comment on my sister’s Facebook directed toward the country. This made me think, should a spouse stay faithful or leave if their significant other hits them without reason, snoops on them, or keeps them defenseless? What if this same spouse doesn’t let you speak, and lord help you if you air the dirty laundry? What about keeping you locked in a room without anyone being able to see you? Or takes any money you have comes in, blows it and runs up credit card after credit card?

If they won’t change should you stay faithful or leave them?

Now take this and use it as an analogy of America today. America now can kill you with a drone without trial thanks to NDAA and has murdered Americans before. The NSA was busted for snooping on all electronic communications. Would you tolerate a significant other doing that?

All the limitations on firearms, same as keeping your other half helpless. We don’t have unabridged freedom of speech, look at the whistleblowers being pursued, same as a beaten wife telling a friend. That is if you get to even have friends, indefinite detention anyone? Taxes and running up debt in your name is the same as me controlling all money in the house without asking permission and getting credit cards in my wife’s name and running them up.

Guess what, we’re abused spouses. How’s that make you feel about your relationship with the USA? Do you keep your head down and get back in the kitchen where you belong to cater to Uncle Sam’s every whim?

Fuck that. This place has gone to hell considering where it came from, and I hold those who vote the same crooks into office repeatedly in office responsible. I hold the crooks responsible. I hold those who don’t vote out of apathy responsible and lastly…I hold myself responsible. I’ve made a few bad votes myself.

Guess what? I’m doing something about it, I’m engaged in the political sphere, and not falling for the two party farce, what are you doing? Staying in the kitchen or filing for a divorce?

Freedom > Privilege

When you add a caveat to Freedom then it’s no longer a freedom but a privilege. We don’t have a Bill of Rights but one of privileges.

However…only if you recognize someone or a group of someones have authority over you. The reality of it is, the only way you lose a right, is if someone kills you. Other than that, it’s because you gave it up. Is someone holding a gun to your head saying speak and you shall die? If you say the ‘wrong’ things you will be in trouble and in fear you give it up and say nothing at all. You still can, you have the power. This is but one example.

That’s on you, as for me, don’t try to lash me down because you fear the sovereign man. I’m not your enemy, your enemy is in the mirror.
