We almost titled this nonsense – gettin’ ready for socialists. Then we realized as in “became aware” – folks we and many others around us are already pretty well along the path – the one thing of certainty – over and over again in our history books – we the people will put up with and tolerate the smelliest “you know what’s” running our governments.
Our founders didn’t!!
Where on earth – where in this wonderful land of the free; home of the brave – where are just a few – don’t need many – current “founders” to flush the now almost 100% pile of smelly ones – the 435/100/9 + 000,000’s more as we move across and visit the large towns and cities and states.
Here is what one of our founders told us – a while back – as applicable today as when our 3rd president wrote it some time ago:
Extract from Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith
Paris Nov. 13. 1787.
the people can not be all, & always, well informed. the part which is wrong [. . .] will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. if they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. we have had 13. states independant 11. years. there has been one rebellion. that comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state. what country before ever existed a century & half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? let them take arms. the remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. what signify a few lives lost in a century or two? the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. it is it’s natural manure.
