So, how did we find ourselves in such a grave situation in America that we have avowed socialists as representatives at various levels of government? The answer is simple, we never said “no.”
We are living in a time in America where a certain group of individuals are turning their ideology into policy. And most of this is occurring through the use of edicts, orders, mandates, and decrees. None of which are constitutional, because in a Republic we are to be governed by the rule of law. Instead, we are being ruled as subjects.
Since we have failed to say “no”, we are on the precipice of losing constitutional governance in America…some would say we already have. I am not one of those.
Our Declaration of Independence clearly states that government exists based upon the consent of the governed, and that States gave birth to the federal government, not the opposite. However, all of this is being turned upside down. And no, the American people do not consent to open borders, inflation, high energy costs, and the eradication of women’s sports…not to mention government-approved indecent exposure of biological males before our daughters.
It is time “We the People” just say no. If we do not, then the words of Ayn Rand ring true, “The uncontested absurdities of today are the accepted slogans of tomorrow. They come to be accepted by degrees, by dint of constant pressure on one side and constant retreat on the other — until one day when they are suddenly declared to be the Country’s official ideology”.
