Why Do The Little Things Matter?

Why do the little things matter? They matter because it sets up a life pattern. If you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas. If you cheat in school, steal office supplies, cheat on your wife and your taxes it hurts everyone. For every action there is a reaction.

About sixty five percent or better of the American people are in the middle, or moderate. However, the few percent of the far right and the far left are the ones that make the most noise. The squeaky wheel gets the most grease. It’s about time that the vast majority started getting more active. I know we are all involved in our own lives, making a living and raising families. In the meantime the traditional American way of life is being eroded away bit by bit.

Multiculturalism, will eventually give way to internationalism. Do you really want the United Nations to control your life?

I’ve heard everything from international industrialists to “One Worlders”, among other conspiracy theories that may be behind the decline of the civilized world. I think, in reality, the real culprit is apathy. In our United States especially, we have had it so good for so long that the average person here just takes everything for granted. Without the personal initiative to stand and fight for what you believe in, you are inviting those that would, to take your freedoms and traditions away from you.

Has anyone read the Constitution, The Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independence lately? The Federalist Papers are a good insight into the mindset of the people who wrote them and why they wrote them. The compromising has already been done. These documents represent the finest minds of the founding fathers in conflict and compromise until the final documents were birthed.

If you loose your freedom of speech, the right to keep and bear arms, and your freedom of religion, what will you have? You will have a new right; the right to say yes and do what your told.

There is a serious challenge to our American way of life going on right now. Yes, our American way of life is under attack. There are many groups out there chipping away at and attempting to erode what “We the People” are supposed to have. Regardless as to weather they are just individual entities or a group of like minded organizations, they are moving forward in their efforts to limit our rights and further their agendas. It’s all about control. They want to control you. A few more laws, a few changes to the existing laws, a little more divisiveness and pretty soon we won’t recognize where we live.

The founding documents of our country are the bulwark of our freedoms, rights and traditions. As it states in these documents, “We the People” were given these rights by our creator, not by the laws of man. If our adversaries can obscure this one fact, the laws of man can easily take our rights and freedoms away

It may be jealousy, envy, or just plain greed that prompts those from within and around the globe to undermine our United States. We are the most unique, prosperous and free people the world has ever seen. It took a lot of work and sacrifice to get us to where we are today. Socialism is an insidious force that is eating away at the very fabric of our nation. At the other extreme, the multinational corporations and rogue governments are plotting the erosion of our rights as well. Keep in mind that at both extremes there is always a ruling class that want the rights of “We the People” to be limited. Genghis Kahn, Hitler, ancient Rome, Stalin, Trotsky, Chairman Mao and others have tried to conquer the world. Do we really want to give away our rights and give some others a chance?

The following lies are currently setting up to overtake our way of life and our rights:

1. Global warming is caused by mankind.

2. Evil can be overcome by negotiation.

3. Open boarders make good neighbors.

4. Nationalism is a bad thing.

5. International law should usurp our constitution.

6. The United States wasn’t founded as a Christian nation.

7. The Constitution is a living document that should be reviewed,
and subject to change on a regular basis.

8. Your conscience is a bad thing to have.

If you really believe that man is not an animal then stop acting like one. Just because you think something is fun doesn’t mean it’s good for all of us. Productivity, self sacrifice, self reliance, self restraint, looking out for the other guy and caring for our neighbors are the foundations of our nation and our way of life.

The United Nations, The Hague, Mexamericanada, Law of the Sea Treaty, American Civil Liberties Union – OH MY GOD!
