Those who would classify themselves as the enemies of tyranny and advocates of freedom have offered—and for quite some time—many reasons why the United States are in the condition they are in. These reasons need to be reduced to their principle and need to be studied in terms of both society and government phenomenon before real remedies can be applied to the problems caused by the reasons.
The reasons can be summarized into three main statements. The problem with the United States:1 is not with the United States Constitution “USC” but with the people of America;2 is not with the USC or the people but with government rulers; and3 is with the USC, regardless of the people or rulers.It is admitted that the complexity of this subject cannot be fully dealt with in a short article as this, but perhaps the content herein will aspire more people to truly identify the real causes of our plight so that an enlightenment of the mind will produce freedom, happiness and peace in all of the societies in America.
To that end, I will take the proposed reasons in order.Read Parts one and two.2 The problem with the United States is not with the USC or the people but with government rulers.a Like the arguments expressed in parts 1 and 2 of this article series, regarding the “innocence” of the USC, I find this argument lacking in genuine and thorough analysis and conclusion.
After all, the Anti-Federalists predicted largely the predicaments we find ourselves in today even before the USC was ratified. If the events we have seen for decades cannot be contributed to the opening of a sort of Pandora’s box—known as the “experiment” of the USC—then how could the Anti-Federalists have been so correct in their assessments of the natural consequences of ratifying the USC?
The Anti-Federalists did not rely on just what the proponents of the USC “intended” or proposed but what human nature would allow and indeed require based upon this new federal power and construction of the federal constitution. History proves that the Anti-Federalists were more correct in their assessments than were the Federalists…
Gunny G: A Few Good Men ~ The Damn Few
“You can’t handle the truth. Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because, deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said “thank you” and went on your way. Otherwise I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand at post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to.”
