Let’s Take Back Our Country

I have lost a friend today who fell into despair, he felt that there was nothing left for him in this world, it was because of the dark pit that the government had forced him into. Try as he may he could find no way out. So he took his own life.

I realized today that there is a lot more at stake in the fight against community notification of past sins. More at stake than the requirement to belly up to the bar and tell “the man” where I live and what I’m doing. The problem is much deeper and has been going on for a longer period of time. This is a direction that this country is going and somebody must put a stop to it.

We have grown so large that we have lost sight of what this country was founded upon. That is the right to be our own person to have our own thoughts, our own lives as long as they do not interfere with others. Our forefathers came to this country for many reasons. Many came to get away from the persecution of others and to live a life as they saw fit.

We are, and have always been a nation of misfits, people which were driven out of their native lands for a myriad of reasons; social, economic, religious, and ideological. Our families came into this country to be free, have a new beginning, a second chance, and enjoy the individual freedoms that the Bill of Rights guarantees people. That is what this country means to the world, the freedom to live your life without government interference.
