It’s Time For We The People To Stop Blaming Everybody … But Ourselves
Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)
What follows is not a bedtime story and may very well anger or even offend some (those most guilty). The truth is a often buried or masked … regardless, it remains a constant, and to those who wish to ignore or corrupt it, not a pleasant one. Those offended by what they are about to read are the ones who need to read and understand what is being said the most because this truth is … This is a Republic Of, By and For The People. If it perishes it does so by our own hands, and not by the actions of any tyrannical government!
When I state or quote this I get very little response or in some cases negative feedback … WHY? It is the absolute truth, no matter how hard it is to hear! We The People, through a major disconnect facilitated by our apathy, complacency, ignorance, or complicity, have permitted just about all that ails us to become reality … FACT!
I am constantly hearing how our leaders continue to pass bills that pile more debt on our backs and that of our children, that remove our civil rights and freedoms and do nothing to extricate us from our imperialistic warmongering even though they campaign on exactly these promises! Yet WE continually reelect these same idiots, and they continue to consolidate power over us. Just look back at the re-election rate of incumbents in this failing country from even the last election cycle, when so many of us railed against the known tyranny … the average exceeds 90% for all of Congress!
Remember this :
“We just can’t trust the American people to make those types of choices…. Government has to make those choices for people.” ― Hillary Rodham Clinton
They claim to represent us but prove by their self-centered actions that nothing could be further from the truth! Just a little research by an involved or concerned citizen would show that their actions in most cases (there are some rare exceptions) prove to serve only their masters and themselves.
Term limits have been discussed for decades as a tool to get this evil and destructive monster we call our government under control, but has a snowballs chance in hell of ever passing in congress as it would short circuit their personal power, once again showing that it is NOT We The People who matter! It has also been discussed curtailing the access and influence of lobbying, or terminating it all together, basically stemming the flow of money for corruption to our elected leaders … HaHaHa what a freaking joke! These people OWN our representatives, so they will never cut off their noses to spite their faces, and to hell with We The People!
“Ours is not a fated existence, for nowhere is our destiny etched in stone. In the final analysis, the last line of defense in support of freedom and the Constitution consists of the people themselves. If the people want to be free, if they want to lift themselves out from underneath a state apparatus that threatens their liberties, squanders their resources on needless wars, destroys the value of their dollar, and spews forth endless propaganda about how indispensable it is and how lost we would all be without it, there is no force that can stop them.” – Ron Paul
Freedom robbing legislation like the Patriot Act and the NDAA rider, Obamacare, just to mention a few (tyranny abounds in many bills) were passed by a majority of congressional members forcing tyranny (hidden in big important and benevolent sounding words like “PATRIOT” Act) down the throats of We The People … yet a vast majority of those who voted for this tyranny … in some cases several times, have been re-elected … in some cases several times … WHY?
These are but a few examples of how We The People FAIL to hold our elected representatives accountable and in fact embolden them to commit more tyranny against us by not holding their feet to the fire, or just FIRING them (recall)! Are we that gullible, apathetic, ignorant, detached … or just plain stupid?
“The wisest thing in the world is to cry out before you are hurt. It is no good to cry out after you are hurt; especially after you are mortally hurt. People talk about the impatience of the populace; but sound historians know that most tyrannies have been possible because men moved too late. it is often essential to resist a tyranny before it exists.” ― G.K. Chesterton
YES, Americans as a society are highly ignorant of the inner workings of our government, probably the most ignorant and detached society on this planet. A majority of Americans are too damn lazy to do the required research into how exactly we are each represented! Instead we place immense TRUST in the people we elect, wanting to believe they will know what is best for us and will always have out best interest as their motivations … BULLCRAP!
At any point in time, even a large minority of this countries population could have taken a stand to push back against encroaching corporatism or tyranny … it has not happened. Most Americans are blissfully and intentionally ignorant of the tyranny unfolding right before their eyes, choosing to maintain the mindset “If I am doing nothing wrong, this wont influence my life”, again BULLCRAP!
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams
So the next time you rant about the abhorrent state or our freedoms and political conditions in America … look in the mirror to find the biggest and most responsible culprit … We The People, because at any point in time, an involved and educated people could have changed the path of America!
“Tyranny is always better organized than freedom.” – Charles Péguy
We are over 300 million strong, while they number a few thousand … and any real change for the better MUST begin with us recognizing OUR monumental failure in this long running experiment called America.
So shut your TV off, get off your couch, get educated, be involved and take America back, one booted Senator, Congressman, Governor, Mayor, Councilman or Bureaucrat at a time if necessary!
It is well past time for We The People to wake up, unite our voices and put America back on the path of greatness she has, through our neglect as the true stewards of this Republic, so egregiously steered off of. Please remember … This Has Always Been and Remains Our Duty …
… and there is no better time to start than NOW … RECALL!
IT’S TIME TO THROW OUT THE TRASH !!!
“The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.” – Alexis de Tocqueville
Now please look at the title again and really think …

Stay tuned to …
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
