It's Almost Done

Try as might I can't get past the ongoing deluge of restrictive nature of watered down language and the constant assault on a person's ability to exercise the right to speak openly and honestly. 

I was raised to stand up for what is right and for what I believe in. To never back down. Having the courage of my convictions.

In my youth my parents my brother and I were taught right from wrong. Taught from an early age that to be a man you first must be right with yourself before you can be right with the world. To stand tall in the face of adversity. Recognize the popular is not always the right way. 

In order to stand up for what is right your back must be stiff and your courage must not waiver.

This is the position I now find myself in.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. In the youth of our nation the fortitude of our fore fathers was tested with deadly force. Their belief to form a society where its citizens were free from the bondage of tyrannical overlords was unyielding.

They fought for their freedoms and our freedoms with arms and with quill pens. Many lives were lost and families shredded. Loyalties were tested and blood bonds were formed.

56 men signed the Declaration between August 2, 1776 and January 22, 1777, including two future presidents, three vice presidents, and ten members of the United States Congress.

They believed in order to be free we as a people had the right to worship at the alter of your choice to speak freely and to protect our homes and our borders from those who would do us harm. So much blood was spilled.

But it wasn't just spilled blood our nation was built on. Men like John Adams fought a mighty battle with nothing more than a quill pen and a bottle of ink. 

They believed if a nation was to be free its citizens must be able to freely express themselves.

Today with the advent of social media corporate cabals realize they death knell they face. And in order to ensure their own survival they pass policies meant to stifle our ability to speak and to wright our views. We are threatened with the most basic of our civil liberties.

Now is the time when we as a free society need to push back and with the full weight of our collective will tell those in who lord over us our voices will not be shuttered.

The greatest threat to a free society is when its citizens go into that big goodnight. We talk about gun control and losing that liberty but the bigger picture we must all take the time to face is the loss of all of our liberties.

Today is the day when the voices of our huddled masses should cry out forsaking the opaque cabals who would seek to destroy our pursuit of happiness.

So to the cabals I say this we the people are the scary things that go bump in the night.
