A Shot Across The Bow: A Reclamation Of Independence

THE RECLAMATION OF INDEPENDENCE

Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere

Free Citizen of the United States of America,

August 29, 2009

WHEN IN THE GENERATIONS  SUCCEEDING the one that pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to usher in the birth of the world’s only truly free nation, Liberty’s Progeny incrementally ceded their birthright to the government conceived and designed to serve a free people, and not be its servant, this generation is awakening to the terrible mistake that we, and our ancestors allowed to happen.  Charged with the terrible knowledge that comes with opened eyes, we now take up the long abdicated duty to rouse our fellow citizens and actively wrest the power and the liberties that have been progressively talked, cajoled, threatened, wheedled, and extorted from us, not only by those who ostensibly served us, but by their supporters and enablers who, by accident or design, saw fit to usurp and disdain such freedoms, that they might be withheld, and where impossible to withhold, might be condemned, until a corrosive contempt for these liberties, wrapped in velvet gloves, might so suffocate the circulation of them that this nation, conceived in liberty and the providence of a wise and benevolent creator, might indeed perish from the earth, plunging the rightful heirs of a proud and noble heritage in the the darkened waters of chaos, despair, and evil that surround them, a dank deluge that even today, other human beings actively seek to escape from in the inspiring embrace of this blessed and free country.

We, the awakened and aware, freely accept the charge that the architects of this republic passed on to us over two centuries before, in the hope that all who partook in the blessings made possible by nation they created would somberly undertake the duties of citizens, and so appropriately train themselves in virtue, and educate themselves in the workings of the precepts and ideals set forth in their foundational documents that they would possess enough wisdom to recognize that not all threats to our freedom would come from without our ranks, the knowledge to recognize that not every chain and shackle menacing us will immediately appear to be what it actually is, and the humilitynot to assume that the ingenuity and innovation that has been the hallmark of American success has been the product of man alone.

To this end, we hereby identify and reclaim our independence from the tools used to slowly enslave a free people and usurp the freedoms that we could not be persuaded to freely give up, or voluntarily suppress the free exercise of on our own:

    Kinda stupid, aintcha Malky? It’s a return to governmental principles of the US of the 18th century. Principles hat were intended to provide a framework for future legislation and governance, not a Lego set for influential people with a cause du jour.

    Not even close to a serious response, Geoff. Of course, I doubt whether any of you founding fathers could have envisaged a United States as complex as it is in the 21st C. But this is beside the point – any serious minded person interested in political discourse would be able to see this blog for what it is – the uncontrolled blatherings of a fundamentalist fans of idiot liars like Beck, Malkin, Coulter, Limbaugh, et al. In lots of respects you are right about me – I fit the classic example of a troll. All I have to do is write 2 sentences to get a response from you. You’re like Pavlov’s dog. And you are right too, I ought not to come to the empty headed, empty hearted, selfish echo chamber of Nicedeb to dump on you. I just can’t help myself. I have never been confronted by such crass stupidity in all my life (which is quite a lot longer than Nicedeb thinks!). Why are you so frightened by this administration? A serious study of your previous one shows a massive assault on the rights of your citizens, yet you blindly echo the talking points of their paid spivs – Beck, Malkin, Coulter, Limbaugh! How can you be so stupid! Ah well – it’s your life.
