The final coffin nail that was driven into the Grand Experiment’s heart happened on November 6, 2012. There were plenty of other spikes that have been well placed into the Experiment’s body since 1776. The federal power grabs that was the civil war. The establishment of the Federal Reserve in 1913. FDR’s New Deal. JFK’s murder in 1964. Ted Kennedy’s immigration reform of 1965. Roe vs. Wade. The repeal of the Uptick rule. I am sure there are plenty more “nails” I am missing, but you get the point.
The voting majority of Americans believe that federal government needs to have an arm, hand, and fingers in our day-to-day lives. That the government is not controlled by we the people, but it controls we the people. I don’t believe there is any turning back now. Many of these folks are willing Thralls of the State. They either don’t understand, or don’t care, that allowing the federal government to have so much power over their lives, is no different from the slave masters control over their chattel.
Yes, thank you Founding Fathers for a good run. Guys and gals like me who take pride in the fact that we don’t need a Federal Nanny to care for us, but rather rely on our God,family, and guns to get us through this life. Knowing that dying free, is more important, moral, and just, than living unknowingly in bonded labour. And most don’t even know it.
