My question today, to all of you out here is... aren't you worried?
If today's world doesn't scare you, then you are living under a rock.
We should be afraid, be very afraid because we are thisclose to having our freedom's taken away from us.
In the last year alone, 2 journalist were arrested for asking questions our "government" didn't want to answer.
A single mom with a sick child at a town hall meeting asked about health care for her child was thrown out and scared with the government taking her child away from her.
3 activist were recently arrested for protesting Jeff Sessions in a congressional hearing.
Native Americans were arrested and dragged off to jail for protecting the land that we once stole from them but now want back...sacred land no less.
American journalists were banned from a meeting recently with "Cheeto man" What the hell? Where is our freedom of speech?
The list goes on and on...Hell, I might be arrested for writing this soon, so where do we draw the line? When it's too late?
I will tell you when it's too late, before you even realize it's happening. Look at the past, look at all of these dictators that are out there, they all started small, one arrest here, one there, then people disappearing into the night, before long we are too scared, they were too big and by then we had no rights left.
People open your eyes, read up on these past dictatorships, see how they started, all the same way.
It's like being a victim of abuse, it's not all at once, it's one step. Okay, you will let me get away with that. Okay, so let's try this, okay, she’s good with that so now let's try this. Oh wait, too much, too soon so let's back up, let's put on that I am a great guy face. Okay, they bought it, so let’s take this away and before you know it your gave all your power away and you have none left.
Your stuck, you’re afraid, you can't speak up or leave.
Yes, these dictators do the same thing, little by little...before you even realize it, your freedom is gone. These are the dictators that came before;
Romania's Nicolae Ceausescu
Kim Jung Un
And there are many, many more I can name. These men were narcissistic, egotistical, money hungry, power seeking men, not unlike "Cheeto man"
This is America, the land of the free. We are free to speak our minds, free to protest, free to ask and demand answers.
This is what our Constitution is about, this is what we fought wars for, this is America people…for now anyway.
Unless we rise up and demand our first amendment rights, unless we unite, we speak out, unless we flood the internet and our government officials with our voices then the joke will be on the American people. And this is no laughing matter people! This is your freedom we are talking about.
This is what I do every day, I get to speak my mind to people all over the globe, people every day get to have a say, to like or hate my blogs, to speak their peace about me or about what’s going on in the world, because of this very important thing called freedom of speech.
This is why people use to want to come to America, why they would risk their lives to live here, because we were a land of compassion, we had freedom's, we cared about others and their lack of. This country is not becoming great, no, this country is becoming a fascist country caring only for the rich, the powerful, the few that look and think like each other.
We should be ashamed of ourselves, we should read up about how easy it is to fall into a dictatorship, we should all go to Ellis Island and read what the world thought about us...what use to make us great...something we have forgotten.
"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Today my friends, remember your voice still has power, call your government officials today, protest, write, blog, speak out before it's too late.
As for me I will keep speaking out, until they arrest me, until they take the breath out of me. I will continue to do my 1st amendment right, freedom of speech until it is no longer there! And as I always say at the end of every blog. "Be the change you want to see"
