How about something scary to read before you go to bed,
“When in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another,...”There are several concepts we need to look at. First, and scariest, is the phrase, “dissolve the Political Bands”. I like the word “dissolve”. It has a gradual, gentle sound to it. Unfortunately it did not work out that way in 1775 when we had the “shot heard ‘round the world.” On November 3 we had the “steal muffled round the country” instead. Will it be necessary to get into dissolving again? I don’t know. I am sure I don’t want to live in a Socialist States of America.
Is it really “necessary”. That is the word that Thomas Jefferson chose. Maybe that is why the Progressive* goons are removing Jefferson along with all the other Founders. Jefferson will go on to make a case for the dissolving. The hard part is knowing when you come to the place where nothing can be done. This brings to mind a quote from Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
“You only have power over people as long as you don't take everything away from them. But when you've robbed a man of everything, he's no longer in your power—he's free again.”I had the hardest time getting verification of where he wrote this but eventually I found a site that claimed it came from The Gulag Archipelago.
The American Revolution was not started by the landed gentry of Virginia but by the rabble rousers of Massachusetts. Neither will raise a whimper today. So far we have a bit of wiggle room. We still have the hope that our states will step up to the plate and resist the power grab. My hope and prayer is that the Communists in Congress will overreach and fall flat on their faces before the dissolving becomes necessary.
