What if the memory of the past is more fulfilling than the reality of the present?
What if Memorial Day reminds us of times when we had more freedom? What if freedom is dying right under our eyes? What if the memory of the past is more fulfilling than the reality of the present?
What if the federal government could write any law, regulate any behavior and tax any event, no matter what the Constitution authorized? What if the majority in Congress rejects the idea of limited government and views the Constitution as granting it blanket power to do whatever it can get away with? What if the constitutional prohibition on the government's taking of life, liberty or property without due process of law is only for show and is not for real?
What if the House of Representatives seriously considered letting the military lock up whatever Americans the president ordered the troops to arrest, without charges filed or lawyers present or a judge presiding? What if the House seriously debated this idea of indefinite military detention of Americans in America and actually voted in favor of it? What if this unconstitutional monstrosity becomes the law and your right to due process depends on whether you remain with the majority, stay silent or behave properly? What if the Constitution's guarantees are not guarantees at all, but are subject to the whims of whoever is in power?
What if the Declaration of Independence, which articulated the moral authority for the revolution against Great Britain, recognized that our rights come from our Creator and are inalienable? What if very few in government recognize the divine origin of human freedom and its natural integrity to our humanity?

Last line of the editorial.
“What if, next Memorial Day, freedom is just a memory?”
From Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, Nov. 19, 1863.
Let us today resolve that there will be a new birth of freedom, and that Obama and his Administration will be voted out of office on Election Day, 2012.
Judge Andrew can bunk with me at the re-education camp anytime.
Oh, you guys are just hung up on some old piece of paper. Those guys are long dead and forgotten. Get with the program already!
(Do I need a sarcasm tag?)
not only is it dying, but it’s dying of congestive heart failure.
We have a US Congress with no spine, no guts, no gonads who must be voted out; all of them except Allen West.
ObamaCare/DeathCare = Holocaust II
Never Again is here and now in my opinion.
A big part of the problem, IMHO, is that people keep looking at legislation that gets passed and say “How can they do that???”...
The Supreme Court has UNAMBIGUOUSLY RULED that any “laws” that conflict with the Constitution are NULL AND VOID!!
A number of times.
ANY person that works for the government - ANY GOVERNMENT - who supports or defends any laws, regulations, or procedures that deprive people of due process HAS COMMITTED TREASON!
It’s time for people to step up to this fact and admit it!!
