A French revolutionary named Camille Desmoulins (1760-1794) said: "The great only appear great because we are on our knees. Let us rise." The words of this man ring truer today in the United States than they ever have before.
We have a government who regularly violates the Constitution and who is ruling through executive fiat and by selective enforcement of the law. The government class can best be described as a new Aristocracy and answers to no one--not their 'constituencies', not the law that is supposed to apply equally to each citizen of these United States.
We have a populace who have been 'dumbed down' over the last thirty years through those who wish to see serfs instead of citizens. Instead of material that gives the tools necessary for independent thought, students are being taught that self-esteem is paramount to critical thinking.
We have a media, who instead of being the 'Fourth Estate' and speaking truth to power, instead hides and covers for inept politicians and pushes political agendas that work to the detriment of this country.
It is time to stop consenting to our rights being violated. It is time to step up and say 'No More!'
Let us rise.
