“Freedom in the USA?”
This is a letter to the working people of the United States of America!
The elected officials are supposed to be working for the people of the USA! This is supposed to be in their Oaths of Office… and not their offices for greed! Where are the “Oaths of Office” to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America? Our lives, civil rights, businesses and properties are not supposed to be overwhelmed by thousands of bureaucratic regulations that put us in fear, demand exorbitant fees and take our money for agency-proclaimed infractions of those regulations!
IF… we want to preserve our country of freedoms and preserve the Constitution of the United States of America… think of our families’ lives beyond today’s silence!
Citizens of the United States of America need to be able to produce! No farms, no ranches, no orchards, no water, no workers, then there will be no food! No economy.
Do not allow winter rains to flow away into the sea! There is no shortage of water… only a shortage of wisdom in properly utilizing the water!
We need to use all the land, not just a small percentage! There is no such thing as “Perfect Wilderness” for posterity! Saving “Wilderness” is a fund raising ploy of political obstructionists! All living things change with new growth!
Let farmers and ranchers use the land and water to grow food! Let loggers make lumber. Let water make electricity. Let coal and oil give us energy! Let citizens use the land for hunting, fishing, cattle, horses, sheep, goats and native wildlife… whereby the land will be less thick and be more open! And not to burn up the woods and the wildlife in run-away forest fires!
Soon military persons and public officials that do try to “protect and defend” the Constitution of the United States of America will be gone. Then you, the new “people” will have to live with the government that you have allowed to evolve.
Will it be US Constitutional freedoms? Or, will it be silent obedience to the United Nations’ elite?
