Folks we are facing the passing of the fourth of July, the day of Independence, but have we forgotten our past?  In fact a brutal past? Wasn’t this an exercise in independence?  An exercise to be different?  Non conformist?  Is it still worth fighting for?  Has ‘politically correctness’ become a severance point in which we have become forgetful of our true roots as a nation.  The question is, do  we truly deserve America?  Can we as a people truly handle the revolutionary ideas of our forefathers?  Have these ideas just simply become passé.  Has politically correct been a divisive avenue in the separation of political points of view?  Has it been a directly responsible for our current excuse for what we have become as a people for the government, as oppose to the government by the people?  What has become of our drive? Our resistance to the status quo?  Have we let down our forefathers?  Have we’ve become so complacent as an American people that we’ve forgotten our duty to question authority, authority in reference to those we as an American people elect and place in office.  Do we truly know whom we place in office?  This I say when we place our vote based on what we believe is true?  Based on what we as citizens receive in paraphernalia from whom we receive from government or campaign sources.  Should we believe this information is sound and true?  Are we comfortable with government doing the thinking for us.  Are we comfortable with government mandating the simplest expressions of our First Amendment rights invalid?  These are questions to ponder this Fourth in passing.

This is really about maintaining command and control. We wouldn’t want local peasants getting the idea that they have a say in government. We can’t tolerate freedom of expression unless people clap for whom the council approves of.  – Paul Jacobs from Temecula, Commenter on the Press Enterprise

We as the City of Riverside have embraced the thoughts and wisdom of Benjamin Franklin, when it come to freedom of speech, so much we place this granate etching in front of City Hall..

Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics and limited monarchies derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates.  – Benjamin Franklin, “On Freedom of Speech and the Press”, Pennsylvanial Gazette, 17 November 1737

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.  – This was written by Franklin, sometime shortly before February 17, 1775 as part of his notes for a proposition at the Pennsylvania Assembly, as published in Memoirs of the life and writings of Benjamin Franklin (1818).

Has it simply become to difficult and too late to retrieve the rights that we have lost so far as a nation, and will it take a fight to get them back?  Can we afford to continue to lose now what we may have taken for granted?

    A great nation founded as we celebrate 237 years of this Independence Day. We now see few know why and what it says as it is lost to being just a day off of work. So much of our famous Documents are unknown or followed in 2013. Freedom from King George was strong and the rights to speech and choose our leaders. We the People were the words of the new Nation. But lost are it’s directions for the perfect Union. Most of our elected officials have no idea what the Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence or the US Constitution says. Most Americans have no idea of what the function of the Three Branches are Government are. Great nations are led by Great Leaders and we are falling to the US being taken over by corruption, greed and Dictatorship. When a US Congress says they do not have to follow the law you know we are in trouble. Education is important but so is honesty as we see much has changed in 237 years and recently not for the better as our Congress/Senate take us backward. A generation called boomers looked to correct the mistakes of the adults but we failed and now it’s up to this generation to make those corrections before our country falls.
