As Leviathan moves relentlessly ahead, continuing to strip natural rights and freedoms from citizens, it is useful to review what rights have been lost. Too often we focus on the next right or liberty under attack. Knowing where government is currently focused and the rate at which it is moving, should sicken anyone who understands freedom and its necessity for a peaceful and plentiful society.
A review of a lengthy article from Washington’s Blog should break you out of your lethargy. The purpose is stated thusly:
This post explains the liberties guaranteed in the Bill of Rights – the first 10 amendments to the United States Constitution – and provides a scorecard on the extent of the loss of each right.
It is one thing to be sickened over government’s current targeted freedom(s). It is quite another to review the massacre of liberties that lies in Leviathan’s wake.
If you read this article and are not angered, then you deserve exactly what is coming. In Mencken’s terms, it is coming “good and hard.”
