"Man, once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the spot of every wind. With such persons, gullability, which they call faith, takes the helm from the hand of reason and the mind becomes a wreck." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Smith, Dec. 8, 1822
Our Nation’s citizenry, as a whole, has lost its resolve to control the absurdities foisted upon them by bureaucracies of city, county, state and federal governments. Our Country flounders with elected leaders listing from side to side depending on which poll they read that day or to the last campaign contributor’s whim. Those citizens, uneducated to the numerous and egregious laws passed every year by these elected, fall prey to the government with no matter as to the concern of the consequences.
An educated mind is the strongest weapon against tyranny and a government relentlessly usurping our rights daily. It has become a government that needs to be reckoned with. For those of you that see, I call upon you to help educate those passed over without having benefited from the knowledge of our Founding Fathers. Show them the path of understanding, the light of reason and how to defend the nation of our forefathers before dissent becomes a right of the past.
