I find it amazing to consider just how hopelessly corrupt a land we are, and have been for so very long a time when I read things like this. To think not only that some people would dare usurp the authority to remove those which are the most obvious prerogatives of free men, but also that we as a people would allow it without taking deadly exception to it, is disgusting. Empire thinking is the grand obscenity of all humankind.

And now another parade of such men toss our fundamental rights back at the people, as if gifting us such that the Master's boot should find itself awash with our tongues in obsequious gratitude. That which is so given can be as easily retrieved from hand on the next capricious whim to come down the pike when yet another raft of unscrupulous, ignorant, and dishonorable dullards arbitrarily decide it is time.

The American house is built upon a rotten foundation. To do nothing about it is to possibly guarantee a best-case future of constant granting and rescinding of privilege, because that is all our rights become in practice so long as men hold the effective power of giving and taking them as the wind may blow. But someone was either endlessly clever, or equally dull in how they specified the mechanisms of fundamental American change such that to hazard those methods is to place the threadbare remnants of our liberties in dire and terminal danger.

Just consider for a moment what brand of thinking it must take to presume that a guest in one's house, such as a babysitter, should hazard their very freedom at the hands of prosecutors by defending life and limb in the place of their employment. Setting such hazards before good men are acts that even the child-rapist cannot match for pure evil. It is tantamount to making breath itself as perilous as murder. Your very life continues at the whim of legislators.

The Framers of the Constitution may not have intended to give into the hands of mad and evil men the greatest instruments ever conceived for the complete, if slowly advanced, subjugation of a people, but that is the net effect. But the truer sin lays upon the shoulders of those who allowed all this destruction of freedom to come to fruit. Fie rests upon us all.

What a defiled and tainted race we are, and have been since even the earliest days, as the very tyrannies we purported to fight in hot warfare returned to us with virtual immediacy once "victory" had been declared. "Put yer guns away Clem... we dun put them thar redcoats aflight, once'n fer ohl." Was it na´vetÚ that lead our forebears to believe that free men could ever relax in the face of creeping global Empire, or was it nothing fancier than perennial human graft? What, I ask, lead them to drop their guards and allow circumstance that would lead to events so early on such as the Whiskey Rebellion? That alone should have been signal enough to all men that the vigilance must be eternal and the responses unequivocally deadly to all governmental trespass. Our steadfast refusal to murderously guard our freedom has lead us to 21st century America. The Framers warned us about eternal vigilance, but we dropped that ball in a hurry, content to let someone else make the tough judgment calls in misplaced trust.

What idiots we all are. "Go there and fight the Eville Kaiser!" - and we obeyed like spiritlessly dull and senseless children. "Go there and fight the Eville Hitler!"
And so on down the sad list of foreign entanglements, not a single one of which ever came to threaten the American continent, save perhaps the Japanese in the wake of Pearl Harbor. Look how we, the people, took the bait with the USS Maine. The boiler blew and Theye seized the moment to blame Spain and the dull-witted American was right there, rushing up San Juan Hill and later telling Gridley that he may fire when ready. Had to go to Korea and Viet Nam on government word because them'ar commies would domino the entire southeast Asian continent. So what? WMDs!! Quick everybody, we need to get our boys into Eye-Rack pronto!

The same clapped-out tricks still work on us every time. How pathetic is it that we are either too stoopid or too lazy to think and act for ourselves? Average humanity is the very definition of "corruption", and apparently has been for a very long time.
