About the only thing I exercise control
over around here is the dog. She can only go around the neighborhood when I
attach her leash and control her gait and direction. Come to think of it,
that is just about the full extent of my authority. I heard a fellow say one
time, "Show me a man that says he is the boss in his house, and Iíll show
you a man that will lie about anything." If that be the case in most homes
around the country, then why is it that so many people want to be in control
of others? Is it part of our macho image to try to exert pressure on others
so as to control us? It is not that we donít want some control and it is not
that we donít need some control, but there is a limit to everything,
We want the government to control the safety and security of our country. We
want them to have control over our borders. We want the government to have
control over the way that interstate business is conducted. We want
government to control the financial stability of our economy. Wait a minute.
Our government already has laws on the books to control all those things.
Then the only conclusion we can come to is the government has failed to do
its job. The things they already have control over are failing and failing
So why after so many failures are they continuing or try to control what few
aspects of our lives we have left? They continue to try to set up a type of
government in this country that is not about helping the people more, but to
put their brand of control over them.
They seek ways to pass laws not written by or even read by lawmakers that
will take control not only of the citizens, but of the very people who vote
the new laws into existence.
If our lawmakers are not smart enough to understand these simple fact they
are surely not smart enough to be given the voting power by the people to
pass other laws.
We the people have paid way too much attention to the "party of our choice"
and way too little attention to the controls given by our constitution to
send the right people to government who will look out for our welfare and
safety instead of their own. The people we are sending to government now are
signing away the very rights that we send them there to protect for us.
We the people should keep the power to control the government. We have the
control to make sure our values and our way of life are kept out of the
hands of government. Please do not give that up. Apathy is the direct
opposite of control and our apathy has gotten us into the situation we are
now in. I have heard the phrase so many times lately, "it could never happen
here." Well my friend it can and it will unless we the people take back
control of the people we send to government. If need be empty the halls of
congress and employee new representatives, not to make change but to correct
the years of putting the power of government in the wrong hands.
There have and is and will always be those who wish to control others. They
think somehow they are different and have the answers as to why all the
others failed and they will succeed. They may be able to sell their ideas to
others and obtain an army to help in achieving their goals. They may even be
under the mistaken idea that they will be honored and esteemed by their
actions, but they will find in the end, that they, their ideas and their
actions are short lived and their name only used to refer to failure and
If you are part to the plan that is afoot to take control, or you think that
the present plan is going help you is some way, look at history. Those who
thought they would be better off or would make their station in life higher
one day found they were pawns, used and given up or cast to the side of the
road for the "cause".
We the people.
