GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT
Our country has advanced in the areas of civil rights, technology, medical advancement and world economics.
Yet, as a nation that advocates liberty, justice and freedom, we the people believe it is our government’s responsibility, no, obligation to find the truth in every situation and to right the wrong.
We the people of this great nation have turned a blind eye on our government for too long. We have allowed our government to create a justice system that works and believes, “convict the accused because it is easier than finding the guilty.”
“Guilty Until Proven Innocent”
What happened to
“Innocent Until Proven Guilty”?
Is that not what separates our great country of democracy from the tyranny of a dictatorship or a communism society?
Our forefathers and founders of this great country gave us our Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Our fathers, sisters and brothers have made the greatest sacrifice that could ever be asked of any one citizen. They gave their lives to protect and uphold the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
So, we as a nation can be free to speak, free to bear arms and have the right to due process.
With the great tragedy and loss of 20 angels and 6 guardians in Newtown, Connecticut, our government wants to use this what they call objectivity an opportunity to limit or strip our rights under the second amendment, which allows us to bear arms to protect our property and family.
Today it is the Second Amendment. Maybe tomorrow it will be the First Amendment, the freedom of speech. Or maybe it will be the right to peaceably assemble and protest.
This will be the legacy we leave for our children if we don’t stand up and say “NO MORE”. Right now we have the power to control tomorrow if we do something today. I want my children to grow up in a society that our forefathers envisioned. The largest employer of our country today is our government. When government becomes greater than a free capitalist society. We the people then become governed by our government, stripped of our basic Bill of Rights.
This is the beginning of “BIG BROTHER”. It is time to bind together one more time as a free nation by calling our congressmen and our state senators and telling them “NO MORE”. If they don’t listen then in 2016 we can show them in a peaceful movement and nominate a president who is not for the Republicans or the Democrats but who is for The People.
The right to vote our leaders in and our of office is the power of our forefathers and founders gave to the people. It may be time to remind our government and the various leaders that we the people govern them, not the other way around.
In the immortal words of Martin Luther King, Jr., “Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty we are free at last”.
God bless America.
