It was never the intention at the founding of our federal government that it should be an entity by which enlightened leaders would guide the people into some greater vision of a society.
Our rights are only rights to opportunity the pursuit. The individual was responsible for his own vision. And in our pursuits, we had no right to rob our neighbor. This was the totality of our equality.
But for the sake of equality of the rewards in property and wealth, love and happiness, even in love and spirituality government visionaries have divided our society into unequal parts. From the tax code, to job opportunities, to marriage, to health care, etc., we are divided against each other and then forced to take our grievances to government, where the very politicians who have divided us increase their power pretending to reunite us.
We the people have submitted. We are now ruled by kings and emperors. They toy with our freedom, our property, our relationships, our emotions and our religion. Our history is now a tool to manipulate us as they blockade memorials to our greatest sacrifices, our personal sacrifices. And the press, the gatekeeper of our liberty, applauds.
