Take down the flag!

Posted by Troy on 13th March 2012 in Current Events

A Georgia man was threatened with jail if he did not remove his flag, calling it an illegal sign.  While usually I would discuss how this is yet another attack on patriotism and national pride, trying to grind us down to where we will accept some sort of international law (such as Agenda 21), this is actually further proof of how there are so many laws on the books that none of us are safe.  If you speak out against the government, they can comb the books and charge you with something.  Have you ever been afraid that what you were doing, while harmless, could get you in trouble with the law?  I guarantee that you have been more actively afraid of trouble with the law than terrorism.  The reason for this is that our government has run amok.  The founding fathers wanted laws to be very difficult to pass.  They argued that several good law being defeated was well worth a bad law being defeated.  More laws are being made every single day.  These are laws in which we have lived just fine without for two hundred years (like the San Francisco law requiring hotels to use fitted sheets).  I believe in the rule of law, but there are limits.  We are losing our liberties by a thousand paper cuts.  It’s time we start taking it back.

Long Live the Constitution!
