Freedom has value only if you value it

Spellchek has been on a bit of a hiatus while across the pond on some business/pleasure activities. Doesn’t appear as if much has changed. Gay marriage now the law of the land in all 50 states? Yawn. Anyone surprised? Anyone think this is the end of it? It’s somewhat interesting to see the right do their best to pin the blame on the activist SCOTUS judges. That includes the other dissenting robes. Really? They’re simply doing what they were put in place to do. So who’s to blame? Per usual, the American electorate that installed the same POTUS fool twice giving him the power to make those appointments. Tired of hearing that elections have consequences?

The TPP fast track authority was passed. Yawn. Nothing more than corporate lobbyists getting their money’s worth by lining the pockets of hack politicians. How is that a surprise to anyone?

OK, I’m already tired and bored of rehashing the same old crap. Fact is the majority of America is not in the game. Either ignorant or passive bystanders, they are the rock that politicians lean on to advance their agendas.

Care to test your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors as to their standing? Ask them what level of importance their freedom is to their lives. Most will likely say it’s right at the top. Right up there with family or faith. Then ask them the kicker. Would they expect their loved ones to still stick around if all they did is make a cursory appearance every so often? Such as a trip to the ballot box every year or two or even four? If that is all the investment they’re willing to make to protect their liberty, than they don’t value it much.

Freedom requires activism. Choosing the lesser of evils to put in office at election time doesn’t qualify. The statists thrive on such ineptitude. And more of the same of what we’ve witnessed lately is guaranteed until enough people realize they have to get out of their comfort zone and decide to protect their liberty as if it were a family member.
