Freedom is Not Free

Our founding fathers began this experiment of self government on the ideal of freedom. A belief they shared for mankind to break free from the grips of tyrannical rulers who throughout history had enslaved the masses for their personall wealth and power. Civilizations rose under the rule emperors and kings only to fall after generations, who trapped in serfdom and tired of the oppression rose to proclaim their liberty. Brave men and women fought for their freedom only to once again fall under the rule of yet another tyrannt. Our founders set out to create such a plan that would never allow that to happen again and the Constitution of the united states was born. Using their knowledge of the histories before them, they designed a near perfect concept of government. They also provided insight as to how it could fail if it were to be corrupted from it's original architecture. An example;
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." Thomas Jefferson.
The constitution says that only congress has the power to coin money, do you think that there has been a violation of the law with the establishment of the Federal Reserve Bank, a private company in charge of the American currency? When Great Britain began to unjustly tax the American colonists, what did they do? They "politely asked"(*1) them to stop, but they did not, so, after much debate, the colonists declared their independence from Great Britain. Do you think it is time that we re-declare our independence? What would we need to do to accomplish this? Many people that I have talked to feel that through the vote, by electing good representation, we can solve the ills that we face. With our population as large as it is, and the vastness of our lands, to reach out to the people requires quite a bit of money. With that, those with the capability to spend more typically win the elections over and over again becoming entrenched in DC and a tool for the interests of those who will financially benefit from their sponsorship. So, if elections are the answer, how many cycles do you think it takes to elect the right people?This would in effect be our way of "politely asking". We sent DC a message in 2010, we have another oportunity in 2012, but look at the rate of speed that DC is violating all the principals of our nation. Do you think there is time to wait? How long do you think it would take to restore the constitution to it's original design?(*2) Wouldn't you like to be still alive to see it actually happen?
(*1) The famous Olive Branch Letter sent to the king "asking" that the unjust taxes be stopped.
(*2) Repealing all unconstitutional Amendmends and Acts of Congress ie: Obama Care, Patriot Act, Homeland Security Act, Corporate Personhood, Federal Reserve Act.....the list is long.
The time has come to re-declare our independence!!
