Where is the line?

I am not sure what to title this post or how to express my thoughts fully. I am hesitant to say some of what I feel needs to be said, however, if I do not or will not, who will?

I don’t think I’m free in fact I think we live under a system of laws that can punish me at any time that it wants. “Give me the man and I will give you the case against him” (WIKI) So far this government has been fairly benevolent but I can’t trust that. I have already chafed against the society enough. There is no last straw. The line has been crossed from freedom to slavery before my birth. My only hope is that the forces that I am against will jump the shark and push people into waking up to what is going on to their freedoms and that they are nothing more than happy and contented slaves. I hope this awakening happens without violence, however, I am not too sure that that is possible.

For those of us who see what is happening and has already happened to our freedoms we must choose. We must choose when we will say no more. We must stand for our beliefs and principles regardless of the cost and persecution to come. We must say this far no further, we must return to the state most conducive to the happiness of Man the state of liberty!

The path we must take will not be an easy one, there will be trials and tribulations, we will be tempted by violence that we MUST NOT initiate. We can not act first or lose the moral argument that is natural to our side. We must with all firmness and presence of mind demand our rights as free beings. We must break the chains that hold us.

“Not too long ago, two friends of mine were talking to a Cuban refugee, a businessman who had escaped from Castro, and in the midst of his story one of my friends turned to the other and said, “We don’t know how lucky we are.” And the Cuban stopped and said, “How lucky you are? I had someplace to escape to.” And in that sentence he told us the entire story. If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.” “A Time for Choosing” by Ronald Reagan
