What is YOUR line in the sand?
Have you ever considered that? Have you given any thought to what it would take for you to say, that's it, no more, this stops here and now?
I see lots of people in the streets for various reasons. Cops killing people and exerting too much power. Racism, real or imagined. Too many taxes. Too much government. The list goes on and on.
With all that and more, have you ever personally thought about your line in the sand?
I have many times. Yes, as many of us who have, unfortunately that line has also moved many times. So in that respect, it wasn't truly that definite line in the sand was it.
It's not easy to pick that point and then hold to it. Things change and so do we. However, if we change too much, then do we become something we never intended and don't want to be? Sort of like the old story of how to boil a frog. If you raise the temperature gradually the frog supposedly won't jump out of the pot.
That is exactly what government, especially ones in the western world, bet on. That they can subject you to the "new normals" so gradually, you won't jump out of the pot and make trouble for them. They use all those nice politically correct terms that are easy on the ears and fool you into submission over time. Illegal is no longer means illegal. Illegal has such a harsh sound to it you know.
Unconstitutional no longer means breaking the national rule of law. It's merely something those radical people say when they don't like something that is good for them like abortion, wealth redistribution, illegal amnesty, and forcing us to buy a product we don't want being force on them for their own good. We, the government and liberals, DO know what's good for you after all.
The the recent budget fiasco, we even saw republican senators refusing to stand up for the Constitution when directly confronted with a vote about the VERY unconstitutional actions of the executive branch of our government. They even criticized Ted Cruz for even bringing it up. How dare he do something so foolish as standing up for the Constitution and asking them to do the same.
Do you see the lunacy? The total insanity and lawlessness of our government! Dare I say, the unconstitutionality of our government!
When a representative or senator cannot stand up and raise the question of constitutionality of the actions being taken by ANYONE in government don't you think that should make you think about where you should draw your line in the sand?
So again I ask, what point it enough for you? When do you rise up and say "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more?"
I personally have reached that point. We each will reach it at differing times. We also each will react in different ways.
How we react is less important than the point that we DO react. We MUST each do something when we reach our line in the sand.
So what will you do? When will you start?
I ask each of you to use your common sense. Use the Founding Documents as a guide. Search your hearts and minds and yes, most definitely, pray.
Many of the Founders would have done just those same things.
Should we do any less?
Then take action. We've already been asleep way to long.
