At the same time, the Constitution was ratified. Surely, with this amazing safeguard against big government in place, America would never have to be subject to the terrors of kingly decrees and tyranny.
A year later, George Washington was elected as the first president of the United States and was offered a crown. Symbolically, he tossed the crown aside proclaiming he was not a King.
Also in 1789, the Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution, yet another safeguard to stop big government.
23 years later, in 1812, America won its first real war as a full nation.
In 1816, the BUS, the equivalent to an American central bank, was founded, and then repealed in 1837.
Apart from a few setbacks, America was prospering and growing quickly. Now an (almost) entirely Christian nation, it flourished morally and economically. It built for itself many principles to live by, such as a good work ethic, a hatred for evil, which was defined by the bible, and the understanding that family is the base, the supporting ground for a country, and that all families must be run by God to be successful. They also had a good understanding of responsibility with their work, money, children, and lives.
Fast forward to the Civil War. God is still there, but he is beginning to be pushed a bit. People are felling less responsible for their actions. America is losing its reputation for having people that are not attached two unshakeable ideologies that, no matter what evidence is shown, will not think about letting go. As the government slowly gains power, people begin to stop thinking for themselves about pressing issues like, "Does your skin color affect your thinking capacity?"
Forward to the early 1900's. Roosevelt begins the conservation of forests. Woodrow Wilson inaugurated, and a version of the BUS is enacted, the Federal Reserve, the largest step into socialism America had made yet. The eighteenth amendment to the Constitution was made, banning alcohol. It was the first time the Constitution was used against itself, to bar the citizen instead of the government. Shortly after, in 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt created the new deal, starting the movement that is accountable for almost all our problems, including the recession, insane debt, lack of financial responsibility, neglecting families, drugs, and hippies. In 1961, a terrible revolution developed as a result of the New Deal's encouragement for lack of responsibility. The beginning of this movement was making birth control pills legal.
Again, another result revealed itself. Labor unions. In 1955, the AFLCIO was formed, firmly instating a concept in the mind of a common worker that tells him to work as little as possible for more money. This was the beginning of the large want for mass government services.
Then, another huge blow. In 1973, the Supreme Court decided to make it legal for women to kill their unwanted children, destroying the final shred of a sense of responsibility for actions the American people once had.
Let's rewind real quick to early America, and see how far we've come since then. Apart from a few setbacks, America was prospering and growing quickly. Now an (almost) entirely Christian nation, it flourished morally and economically. It built for itself many principles to live by, such as a good work ethic, a hatred for evil, which was defined by the bible, and the understanding that family is the base, the supporting ground for a country, and that all families must be run by God to be successful. They also had a good understanding of responsibility with their work, money, children, and lives.
Fast forward to the present. We live in the age of information and freedom. We are so enlightened, we don't know right from wrong. We know better than to think there is one set of morals that everyone should follow. If it works for you, cool. Except for God. I find him offensive, so shut up or I'll sue. But don't search Muslims extra in an airport, that’s racist.
It's Independence Day. Today, people will set off fire crackers (nothing real, it's illegal because of fire), and they will celebrate with their friends by drinking and smoking. Some will visit family; others will turn their phone off when they see their in-laws calling. But mostly, we'll sit in front of TV's and complain about a bad signal instead of remembering how this country came to be.
It's Independence Day. Today, we have a president in office who was elected because of the color of his skin. Those who voted based on performance were chastised for being racist. Maybe, today, he'll issue another decree violating a U.S. law. But that will have fly because if you protest, you're racist.
It's Independence Day. Today, a bill is waiting for its enactment due date. This bill forces all citizens to accept Socialized Health Care, on threat of tax. Today, 3500 children will be killed legally under the Government of the United States of America, where all are allowed life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, not because of their actions, but the careless actions of two irresponsible people who are unwilling to admit their mistake and accept the penalty. Tomorrow, another thirty five hundred innocent children will be taken to the anvil.
Happy Fourth of July.
