What ever happened to “We the People…”? What happened to individual God given rights and freedoms? What happened to bottom up government of the people, by the people, for the people?
As the Progressive / Socialist movement sweeps across this country it feels like I/we no longer have a voice. I, meaning the individual, the individual is the largest minority. As we take are marching orders from a top down, faceless, centralized government, we the people no longer have a seat at the table.
With ever increasing mandates, legislation, closed door meetings, in the name of the greater good, it’s difficult to figure out which end is up or what is going on within government. By the time we the people hear about change it’s already been done.
In an age of information overload, complicated legislation, mandates, etc. it’s no wonder people feel overwhelmed, confused and powerless. I believe it’s on purpose. Thomas Jefferson believed that our legal system and form of government should be designed so that the common man could comprehend it. There’s nothing I comprehend about the Progressive Movement as it relates to the Constitution or the American way of life.
