The American Experiment

Updated on March 31, 2010

The American Experiment

That Failed?

Charles J. Hunsinger

Are there no Americans left? Are we so intimidated by the strength of the stench of our socialist politicians that we are left impotent and voiceless? Freedom is not talking about freedom. It is not lamenting the loss of freedom. It is not waving a sign, a flag and then cowering in the face of opposition. Freedom is action, not resignation. It is principle, not consensus: it is strength, conviction and determination. It is the individual.

Freedom is not a handout. It does not come through a welfare or entitlement state. It is the individual mindset and not a collective hive of mindless drones whose value is determined, not by the individual, but rather by their mindless addiction to sacrifice for the hive. Freedom is first the individual, the man, the woman who stand as individuals. It is for him, who says that he is free, and stands alone within himself and possessed of his own strength. There and then does freedom exist; not to be given, granted or bestowed; it is ours, as individuals to claim, to own, it is who we are. That is American freedom. Freedom is The Bill of Rights embodied, as a Republic. That is the only freedom. Democracy is not freedom, “it is the only road to socialism.” Joseph Stalin

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well armed lamb contesting the vote."

Benjamin Franklin, 1759

Times Change

We do not face the British, musket to musket, bayonet to bayonet, as we did when we threw off the tyranny of the British throne: we face ourselves, our own greed, our stupidity and ignorance, our laziness and our gullibility. How do we fight that; how do we fight the piglets we have come to be.

Perhaps, the words of Thomas Paine, who played no small part in The American Revolution, can remind us of what is at stake should we not choose to fight the treason of government; the socialism that convolutes America and freedom.

“THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.”

Thomas Paine, “The American Crisis”

Times change and we are now 234 years after Paine wrote those words. Our enemy has changed; he wore a red coat then and called himself British, our new enemy wears yellow and calls himself American and a patriot. Paine called for service to country: it is not country that one should now serve, freedom is the master and service is not required; if it were, we could not call it freedom and it would not be worthy of service. The idea, the concept of freedom is embodied within the original Bill of Rights, the freedom of individual achievement. To sustain such an ideal one must first be in service to himself without want from others. When we fight for our own freedom; it is then that we are unbeatable and it is only then that we stand together.

Terminally ill

There is a name for this illness however, that infects us; that weakens our resolve, which distorts our memory and fogs our vision with the clarity and transparency of lead. It is called Socialism or Fascism or even Communism or Marxism. It is viral infection deep within the vital organs. It is insidious, in that it divides and isolates. It destroys our immune system by creating new viruses under the guise of tolerance, multiculturalism, diversity and American guilt. It destroys our independence and our intellect, especially in our youth. The bonds, the loyalties, the traditions of the family decay under the strain of government intervention. Our schools, under government direction, herd our children like sheep toward a global socialism a global citizenry; rewarding their lock step with permissible deviant behavior and fencing out parental guidance and control in the name of "Rights of a Child. It intertwines and seduces the unholy (Fascistic) alliance between government and businessand subordinates the Constitution to Laws forged behind locked doors under the guise of Treaties.

It is far easier to fight the cunning and the savagery of a given enemy than to combat the digressive weaknesses that are deep within us. As a combat veteran I know what it is to face the insanity and the unbridled violence of war, and I know that it takes greater courage and strength to face an enemy that resides within your own house. That is why I fear.

We have been compromised; our government has been compromised, local police agencies, education, courts, business, our economy, the dollar and every facet of our society, even the weather.

We must come to grips, those of us who consider ourselves citizens of The Constitution, with the idea that American Independence; American Freedom has been treasonously betrayed by those who live in Her house, those who have been entrusted to protect it.

The Lamb must speak

We have, but one vote remaining; one action left and that is to stop the desecration of the American Flag. It must not be flown over a SocialisticState, whether it is called The New World Order, The North American Union, or America. We must not allow Her to be lowered in disgrace and replaced with the flag of hypocrisy, deceit and treason.

Sadly there are no more American heros they have all died. Our military that too, has been compromised, and we are alone 

We cannot stop, nor can we change the globalization that sweeps across our nation and the world like the Black Plague that swept across Europe: the death of America is imminent. Our language has been decimated; our culture and heritage is being destroyed, our values have been replaced by the writing and values of Karl Marx.

We cannot do a lot of things, but what we can do is to begin burning The American Flag. We must, in a most dramatic and non-violent and peaceful manner announce the death of an ideal, an experiment in freedom that was overcome by greed and power centered Globalists. We must announce our dissent if we are still free enough to do so.

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
Thomas Jefferson

Frankly, I fear the government, as it no longer functions under the Constitution. I am ready however, to burn The Flag, as my vote and in defense of my freedom and in defense of my values and out of love and respect for what was a glorious dream—America.

Our Flag, the greatest symbol of individual freedom, the world has ever known, is being prostituted and soiled by those who would exploit Her, use Her to promote and advance a collectivistic mentality necessary for the foundation of Marxist Socialism.

"I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice, And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue."

Barry Goldwater

      An excellent article, and the same goes for the writing. It does seem that almost every teacher is on the left. The poor kids don't have a chance.

      The saddest thing is that they become voters.

      I shall become a fan.
