Let's talk about two of my favorite subjects today. Common sense and Freedom.
How do those two things go together?
I think most anyone today would have to agree that we are MUCH less free than we were yesterday, last week, last year, and definitely less than when the Founders created this Republic.
Where we are today is definitely not where they intended for us to be. We can see that by the restrictions they placed on government in the Founding Documents.
So how, really, did we get here?
Common sense says government requires basically two things to exist. You and your money, whatever form that money takes.
Government cannot exist without you and I to "govern" and it cannot exist without the funds to "govern". We all know where those funds come from.
So, again, using common sense logic, if either or both of those things are removed in large enough quantities, government will either be extremely restricted or cease to exist. THAT is what I want to focus on.
Over the past few days we have discussed how the elected representatives have totally disregarded our wishes, yet again. We've talked about each of us establishing and using our own "line in the sand". The biggest question is how do we do that. Once we establish we aren't going to take their crap any longer, how do we change things since we know with no doubt that our votes and voices no longer matter at all.
The answer to that is to remove one or both of their requirements to exist, US and OUR MONEY!
For quite some time now, several years, I have been working toward being more and more self sufficient. I've worked to gain all types of knowledge to assist me in that goal. I've read, studied, experimented where possible, and done what things I could afford to consistently move in that direction. I have not arrived but I have made significant improvements and advances. I've helped family members and friends when I could but I constantly wish I could do more.
Back to the common sense logic, think about this with me. If you are more self sufficient does that not take money out of the politicians pockets? If you pay less taxes does that not limit what the government has the ability to do? If you are more self sufficient does that not better shield you and your family when some crisis hits?
EVERYONE and I do mean EVERYONE has the capability to do something to be more self sufficient no matter where you live or what you do for a living. NOTHING you do is insignificant within the big picture. If enough of us do the little things along with a few of us doing more, we can and will have a major impact.
If you are doing something in this regards now, DO MORE. If you are doing nothing, just working and paying the government to do so, then get started. Think about some small things you can do. Grown vegetables in pots or a small plot. Have 3-4 chickens for eggs, it's simple. Cook at home instead of eating out, it's easy, and MORE HEALTHY once you learn how so don't give me the I don't have time excuse.
What's your family's safety, security, and FREEDOM worth to you? It's YOUR responsibility, not the government.
These things are merely a decision away and not making a definitive decision IS a decision also, so remember that.
Start today. Draw your line in the sand and begin taking your life and FREEDOM back from our tyrannical, freedom stealing government.
We'll talk more in coming days about specific ways to do this.
