Collective salvation, Wow President Obama was a fan of star trek, who would have thought. I guess while I was admiring 7 of 9, Our President was looking at the Borg Queen and her marvelous Borg system of government. I guess one mans villain is one man’s ideal. You cannot say that He lied, President Obama promised higher prices for energy and he delivered. What we did not understand was the loss of jobs that went along with his vision of change that was the hidden surprise. Individuals that promise Collective salvation tell us that we will not be alone anymore, but what it does not tell us is that it also takes away any chance of individual opportunity. It dummies down the society, and takes away our individual liberties. Whether it is a feudal system, a socialist system or a communist system, it all leads to the same outcome, slavery of the population to a few elite individuals that micromanage our lives. Those systems have brought us wars, starvation, genocide, and a host of bad choices.
It is surprising that all the man has to offer is a modern day form of slavery, I for one say no to this form of change. Does the man hate this nation so much? Does he despise the constitution to the point of defying his oath to serve and defend it? At what point do we let this path of change continue? At what point do we demand of our leadership that they act to defend their own oaths to protect and defend the constitution? How many of us need lose their professions, who amongst us have the resolve to speak out at the powers that be. I am one, are their others?
I do not wish civil unrest, but the longer we have leaders that do nothing. The quicker our alternative solutions leave the realm of possibilities. We have to press our opinions to those who will listen and to those who will argue. The debate has to and must be held, I wish that the conflict could be resolved in a peaceful way. I am a father, a husband and active in our local community. I know full well what has and what will be lost. That scares me, but what scares me more is the historical reality of the direction this man and his followers are leading to.
This has happed before in this country, and we have had individuals in the past stand up as I am asking you to do today. I will leave you with the closing argument of Patrick Henry and his speech to the Virginia legislature. His words show the depth and the pain that we have had in the nations past, this nations past. Whether it is a King or a President, anyone who seeks power over others and disallows our system of checks and balance of powers, it makes little difference. This type of pain if it is allowed to continue will lead to a civil unrest. Read Patrick Henry’s last words of his speech and realize that if we continue to sit, and do not stand we will lose our system that had brought us individual salvation and opportunity. We have a legislature in session; we have an unbalanced leadership of public to private representation here in Nevada. We have to have the individuals that are willing to face the objections of others, to make their points heard. Read and reflect, this man was willing to give all, are you?
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
