You have probably always been told that there are two things you should never discuss with others; politics and religion. I have often wondered why a person would not wish to discuss either issue, but specifically the issue of politics. Why would a person not discuss their opinion on matters which directly affect the way they live?
People tend to view the word “politics” as being solely about elections and the passing of laws. Politics, however, is much more than that. The word itself has taken on a dirty connotation. In reality, what exactly is politics? Allow me to define:
“Politics (from Greek: πολιτικός politikos, definition “of, for, or relating to citizens”) is the practice and theory of influencing other people. Politics involves the making of a common decision for a group of people, that is, a uniform decision applying in the same way to all members of the group. It also involves the use of power by one person to affect the behavior of another person. More narrowly, it refers to achieving and exercising positions of governance — organized control over a human community, particularly a state. Furthermore, politics is the study or practice of the distribution of power and resources within a given community (a usually hierarchically organized population) as well as the interrelationship(s) between communities.” (Source)
So, we should never discuss with others the issues that decide the type of government we use, the way it is implemented over society, or a number of other topics that directly affect the way we live our lives? This is why we have reached the place we are today. People are no longer voicing their opinions the way they did when our nation was founded. At that time in history the discussion of politics was rampid throughout the land. At that time, a person who did not have an opinion was seen as passive, and passive people tend to be the first to lose their rights and liberties when democracy falls to tyranny. To fix our nations problems we must reach a point similar in time to that of our founding fathers.
Go out today and discuss politics with someone. They may become angry, or perhaps you will, but it’s a healthy thing to voice one’s opinion. Your opinion, without a voice, becomes a complaint hidden within your mind. A silent opinion is no opinion at all. If you want to restore liberty to America, if you want to regain the right to privacy, the right to travel freely without interference from checkpoints and border stations (some of which are located hundreds of miles inside the U.S.), the right to decide locally the issues that concern your communities, and State’s rights to govern themselves free of Federal interference, the only way to do that is to come together locally and discuss the issues.
One county at a time, one state at a time, we can make America great again if we only stand up and force ourselves to be heard. The fight for Liberty begins in our homes. It grows to our communities, it spreads to a state level, and then like a raging fire it engulfs the nation, from sea to shining sea. Have a voice. Be heard. Speak up today…while you still can!
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson
“I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it.” -Thomas Jefferson
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” -Benjamin Franklin
“I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.” -John Adams
“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.” -Patrick Henry
“Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty.” -Plato
“I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office.” -Andrew Jackson
“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.” -Thomas Jefferson
