IS AMERICA AT A CROSSROADS?

 Would the system of government we now have in the U.S. be recognized by our founding fathers or by those who lived in the 13 states that ratified our U.S. Constitution?

As I have become a much better student of American history since the 2008 National Elections than I was during my high school years, my offering of an answer to you is a resounding NO!

To explain my answer to you I think it is necessary to see what the American mind was like that caused us to declare our independence from the British, fight The Revolutionary War and come up with the form of government that they did.

The form of government that they came up with had to support the words and statements that were contained in the Declaration of Independence.  I believe that as you study the grievances that the Americans of that time period had against the British, which are contained in the Declaration of Independence, that you will see a British government that is similar in many ways to the form of government we have now. And is actually a form of government that our founding fathers were willing to lose life and property to go to war against.

Here are a few of the grievances listed in the Declaration of Independence.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. (Instead of government over regulation, EPA, Department of Education, etc.)

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. (Arizona Immigration Laws)

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. (To pass Obama Care)

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. (Agenda 21 and the EPA)

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance. (Czars?)

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: (United Nations?)

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: (If you understand that when more paper money is printed the value of each dollar goes down, in effect the same as a tax to pay our enormous National debt)

Thankfully times are a little different now, then when America went to war against the British, we do have the right to vote given to us by our founding fathers. But I believe we are at a crossroads. Are we going to try and gain back the form of government our founding fathers created or are we going to keep progressing into a form of slavery that was detested by our founding fathers?
