As this Presidential Pageant ramps up and takes up all of the oxygen in the room, are We The People being played again? Is who the next President going to be really the only thing that matters in this election? I say a loud “NO”. That person running to be your next State Legislator or County Commissioner can, and probably will, directly affect your life more than the next President. And those people running to be your local School Board Members will be directly involved in guiding the future of your community. Do you know who they are? Do you know if they truly understand their place in our government? Have you asked them? Don’t you think you should?
I have friends ask why I make regular trips to our State Capitol in Raleigh when the General Assembly is in session? I explain that I have come to realize that We The People can go to DC until the cows come home and it won’t make any difference. But if and when We The People decide to show up at our State Capitols, and County Seats, and School Boards, and City Halls, we can truly make a difference. We must understand that this has been a major operational part of the plan of the Progressive Movement for 100+ years now. They had to cause We The People to change our focus from our communities, counties and states, to the national government and Washington, DC. All the while we’ve been distracted by DC, they’ve been building an addicted and dependent structure in our local and State governments.
We The People have been duped in to letting the national government bureaucrats and Statists bribe and addict our local and State governments to national government heroin (money) grants. This hasn’t happened by accident, this has long been the plan. Once they can get local and State officials hooked on the national government heroin (money) grants and then they’ll become convinced we just can’t survive without it. The MOST dangerous thing in our Country today to the Freedoms AND Liberty of We The People is a national government grant. And I mean ANY national government grant.
The initial buzz from the “free” national government heroin is wonderful, but the crash that comes from the regulations that this heroin brings in to our communities or states is very uncomfortable and steals our Freedoms and Liberty. Why must my county or State spend twice as much as is really necessary to build a new road? Because there is a percentage of national government heroin in the mix to build the road, so it must be built to comply to ALL national government road regulations. And this happens EVERYWHERE and EVERYTIME that national government heroin is brought in to our communities and states.
And our local, state and national bureaucrats and politicians can’t wait to crow about the great job they have done “bringing home the bacon” from their national government “Sugar Daddy” rather than seeing they have brought addictive poison in to our communities and states from their designated national government heroin pusher. We The People must make the hard choice and work by showing up at local and state government meetings and assemblies and start demanding that they “PUT THE NEEDLE DOWN” when it comes to national government grants, or the Republic will surely be lost, just like the junkie in the alley.
So, as this election cycle moves forward, please start to pay more attention to who you’re sending to your State House, and your county and city governments. We The People hold the ultimate responsibility in this government to be involved in our government. And it starts in our City Halls, County Courthouses and our Statehouses much more so than in Washington, DC. Either We The People will return to our proper place in our “self government” or we’ll watch this Grand American Experiment continue to fade away in to the dustbin of history. I still believe it can be saved but it will only happen when we pay closer attention to those “other” candidates.
