What Would a Free Country Look Like?

How many of us even have an inkling of what a free country would look like?

One thing for sure, it would not have any resemblance to the good ole’ U.S. of A. 

Just consider a few things that come to mind:

1. Since 1865 the Southern States have been occupied by a foreign power, forced into an involuntary political union at the point of a bayonet.

2. The state demands an accounting of every penny that you earn and furthermore demands to take their extortion from the top, before you even see your earnings. And the state also demands to skim a portion of every transaction that takes place in the world of individual commerce.

3. To start a business you must obtain the permission of government. And then you can only operate that business in accordance with the dictates of the state and as they skim their portion from the top of your earnings.

4. You may not purchase a new firearm without the permission of various levels of government. And then that firearm must meet certain requirements imposed by the state. And then you may only keep and bear that firearm as allowed by the state.

5. You may not purchase and live upon a property without paying yearly extortion to the state in the form of property taxes. The property never really belongs to you; for the state will take it should you fail to pay their extortions.

6. You cannot purchase and operate a motor vehicle without first obtaining permits, licenses, tags, insurance, and all manner of permissions from the state.

7. You may not make decisions about your own health care, for the state demands that you purchase insurance or pay a penalty for failing to do so.

8. You cannot make decisions about the education and upbringing of your own children, unless those decisions fall within what the state has decreed to be allowable.

9. You cannot purchase light bulbs or toilets or motor vehicles or children’s sleepwear or meat or eggs or milk, etc., unless those items conform to government dictates.

10. You cannot grow certain plants that are not favored by the state without fear of incarceration and even death.

11. In some areas you cannot even collect rainwater that falls from the sky onto your own property.

And yet the sheeple mindlessly sing-a-long: “I'm proud to be an American, Where at least I know I'm free . . .”

Free?? How so exactly? I might ask.

I recently saw this challenge: “Name two things not Taxed, Regulated, or Controlled by the government?”

That’s not an easy challenge to answer, particularly if we limit the answer to things beyond the merely frivolous . . . and the government generally gets its hands even into those endeavors.

Is there anything beyond the reach of government? Evidently not. Why the Empress Obama just decreed that your local schools must allow males into the female restrooms and lockers.

Nevertheless, the sheeple continue on: “And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.”

Rights come from God -- Not from governments.

What “rights” or “freedoms” do we have today that we would not have had the Amerikan Imperial Military not invaded places like Korea and Vietnam and Grenada and Panama and Iraq and Afghanistan and Libya and . . . well the list is almost endless.

Indeed what freedoms do we have today that we did not have after the First American War for Independence (1775-1783)?

On the other hand, what freedoms have we seen forfeited since the Lincolnian vision prevailed after the defeat of the Southern Armies in the Second American War for Independence (1861-1865)?

And it is not just the South that has lost its freedom; the entire country suffers under the Leviathan government that emanates from Babylon on the Potomac.

I’m thankful that I do know true freedom. The only freedom that will endure.

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. (John 8:36)

I have but very little hope for freedom in this country, but I will continue to fight on for the sake of my posterity that must inherit the mess that we leave behind.

Deo Vindice!
