The Second Declaration of Indepencence

Arguing with idiots can be frustrating

Arguing with idiots can be a frustrating job and we sometimes wonder about the value of it.

Case in point; after a long and frustrating attempt to point out the evil of too much government to a fellow friend, I finally asked him just what would it take before he would become convinced that government was becoming to big and no longer served the interest of the people and that we were about to lose our freedom forever. He responded that we had never had any freedom in this country and that it was all just an illusion.

Well I have to agree that our freedom has become more of an illusion of late but I still believe strongly that we did indeed start out with our freedom. But my friend pointed out to me why he believes that we never had freedom thusly. I quote, “Because the slaves of the South were not given their freedom the very day we won our independence from England, we therefore never really had freedom in our country”.

I know that there are some who condemn our forefathers for not including the slaves in their immediate game plan, and spread this malicious nonsense but they are wrong. In fact, if these folks would complete their education and discover the true facts, they would be far more apologetic and extremely thankful that they do now in deed have their freedoms and it is properly due to the efforts of our countries founding forefathers. We would never have gotten the South’s support to become a free nation in the first place if we had not taken the path that we did, which however, did lead to the eventual freedom of the black slaves as envisioned by our forefathers. If it had not been for this, we would all still be slaves.

Yes, we have had some troubling times and hardships bringing this country to where it is today, by hard work and sometimes by fighting for our preservation and there are those who are not as enthusiastic about our successes as the rest of us and would bring us down to their own miserable level and others for pure greed.

There are those who use any and every skullduggery to implement their wishes for gain and these folks do not mind fueling the fires of racism to accomplish their goals even if it would destroy the very country that they live in under its umbrella like protection.

Over the years, these greedy treasonous perpetrators have indoctrinated and infiltrated every aspect of our community with misguided but perhaps well meaning folks who in turn spread the misguided myths spun by the spin doctors who would transform our once free country into something more socialistic. If my friend would be right and he is not, it would still be in our best interest to fight for our cherished freedom and carry on the well spoken words of Patrick Henry. Give me liberty or give me death.
