“But it is an indictment of our inattention to our government that we did.”
We aren’t to blame. We voted, went to work, and paid onerous taxes. They kicked our ass, looted the treasury, installed people they wanted through election fraud, and verified it through a corrupt judiciary and bureaucracy. The people were kept docile and uninformed by a corrupt and deceitful media on both the left and right.
I do not accept your blame.
“I do not accept your blame”
You dont have to. Doesnt mean we are absolved of it.
The founders warned people to guard their liberty “jealously”.
We didnt. We guarded “teams” of people that help themselves while we “oh welled” ourselves to where we are now.
