The borrower is the servant of the lender... and the servant is subject to his master… being indebted to others for one's subsistence is slavery... by another name. A slave has no power.
So it is, that the common man is left bereft of the resources… needed to effectively resist the tyrant… whose wealth and power consume the bread of the majority, bringing them captive thru dependency on others... big government. It is a cunning and crafty system of soft tyranny, that eats away at the foundations of liberty; one, that denies the very will to resist, thru a host of laws and customs that hinder the ability of the middle class to throw off the chains of bondage.
Beginning with the lack of leaders, with the wealth and the will to resist… the web of dependency spreads. Today, we have no George Washington’s, Thomas Jefferson’s, John Adams or Ben Franklin’s, to lead the commoner or to finance the army needed to reclaim his rights and liberty. Where will the common man find the leaders of our forefather’s stature to organize, equip, train, fund and plan, our emancipation from this oligarchy of tyrants? Where?
It is one thing to define the problem and quite another to solve it… the tyrant has laid his trap and the unsuspecting commoner has fallen into it. The People put their Trust in men, but failed in their duty to resist evil, when it first appeared; being persuaded to eat of the wealth of their neighbors, they soon found their own fields raided and pillaged. The end result is that every man of common stock has been deceived and drawn into a battle they cannot win alone.
Isolated, they tremble in fear, knowing what is coming… they look for deliverance from their leaders, only to find they are the very one’s who have forged the chains of their bondage. What then can they do?
They must rise up out of their misery and take hold of the reigns of government … they must unite as one, to restore our Constitutional Republic.
Will it be easy? Nay, it will be very difficult... Will they succeed? Only, if they can find the leadership and muster the resolve, to do what is necessary, they must pull down those who have betrayed their trust; too, replace them with true Citizen Politicians. Representatives, not politicians, who will serve their term of office and then return to their homes and businesses… where they must live under the system they have administered. Then justice, tranquility, peace and prosperity, will return to everyman’s house, and our Nation will once again be a city, set upon a hill, a beacon of light in a world of darkness.
