Power and arrogance

Politicians are so arrogant to think themselves capable of separating the qualifications of one constituent over another as if the opposing viewpoint is unworthy or criminal. Such is the life of one charged with supporting and defending the constitution that when finding himself in a situation whereby a constituent disagrees with his viewpoint, he engages in censorship instead of moderating his actions.

I can say with utmost sincerity that if the earth opened up underneath all the capitols in our society, thus swallowing the entirety of our system of governance, I would not lift a finger to assist or even turn my head in the general direction of the occurrence. I would rest,  satisfied that a great right had been wrought in favor of our society as well as our dignity as free men.

Lambs to slaughter

Politicians in Washington DC within both parties live in million dollar abodes.  Is this the government you prefer?  I think we enjoy self immolation as if we were Buddhist monks in violent protest of ourselves.  Clothe us in misery and throw off the chains of freedom for we can be infinitely more secure within the confines of a jail cell.  Let us all view ourselves in the mirror and realize what we are: materialistic naves more concerned with comfort and individual selfish needs than individual responsibility and personal control.  We are a despicable people.

The Power of Information

The power of information works both ways. In one hand we have those who act as Snowden to inform the naive while on the other we have all the agents of government to spy on everyone as did the NSA.

Information and its gathering will be our downfall as the age of technology has quickened and strengthened the ability of the few to control the many.
