Why do so few people care about losing their rights?

For many years I’ve been attempt­ing to raise the alarm about the loss of our rights and our free­doms. You would expect that my posts would be met with out­rage by my Face­book friends or Twit­ter fol­low­ers, who should have notice the same ero­sion of our rights. You would expect most of my friends would share my con­cerns. Unfor­tu­nately that is not the case at all. Most often my post is met with silence and apa­thy. Occa­sion­ally I get into argu­ments with friends who side with those who are rob­bing us of our free­doms. At times I do get dis­cour­aged but I refuse to give up. For inspi­ra­tion I reflect on a quote by that great philoso­pher Tim Allen from the movie Galaxy Quest: “Never give up, never surrender.”

Most peo­ple are not aware of what they’ve lost. Very few schools teach civics any more. Instead they teach the polit­i­cally cor­rect, lib­eral revi­sion­ist inter­pre­ta­tion of the Con­sti­tu­tion. Our found­ing prin­ci­ples have been com­pletely dis­missed by our edu­ca­tion estab­lish­ment in the name of the tired lib­eral cliché: they were orig­i­nated by a bunch of white suprema­cist, slave holders.

Instead of the virtues of our found­ing prin­ci­ples and our remark­able Con­sti­tu­tion, edu­ca­tors now praise that deeply flawed and deadly polit­i­cal phi­los­o­phy known as social­ism. Instead of cham­pi­oning free speech, stu­dents are now taught that their feel­ings are far more impor­tant than every­one else’s rights. Indi­vid­ual, God given nat­ural rights have now been replaced by col­lec­tive rights granted to us exclu­sively by the government.

It is not just teach­ers that are brain­wash­ing entire gen­er­a­tions. Hol­ly­wood and the rest of the enter­tain­ment indus­try are also guilty. When­ever a con­ser­v­a­tive or a lib­er­tar­ian comes out of the polit­i­cal closet they are ostra­cized and denied future roles. Lib­er­als enjoy a vir­tual monop­oly over the enter­tain­ment indus­try and they use that monop­oly to spread their lib­eral ideals. .

Lib­er­als also enjoy a vir­tual monop­oly over the news indus­try. With this last elec­tion the Amer­i­can news media lost the vast major­ity of its remain­ing cred­i­bil­ity. They are now pol­ing about the same as lep­rosy. Despite these mis­er­able poll num­bers it is nearly impos­si­ble for one per­son to com­pete with the avalanche of biased news. That’s the biggest prob­lem I face. I’m just one per­son try­ing to spread a mes­sage that a siz­able per­cent­age of my right of cen­ter Face­book friends agree with. Unfor­tu­nately they remain silent. They do not share my posts or share sim­i­lar posts even though they are just as unhappy as I am with the state of things. I get into epic debates with my lib­eral friends but never receive any backup from my con­ser­v­a­tive and lib­er­tar­ian friends. If you have friends like me that try to spread the word please help them by shar­ing their posts and help­ing in the debates. That could make a huge difference.

I try to exper­i­ment with dif­fer­ent ways of get­ting my mes­sage out on Face­book. Another quote I draw inspi­ra­tion from comes from Clint East­wood in the movie Heart­break Ridge: “impro­vise, adapt, over­come.” I try to not only inform, but also enter­tain my friends.

Face­book and Twit­ter are not my out­lets for spread­ing my Con­sti­tu­tion mes­sage. I cre­ated a very suc­cess­ful web­site Con­sti­tu­tion Myth­buster. Please check it out. Word­press make it easy to start your own web­site, please do so, the more con­ser­v­a­tive and lib­er­tar­ian web­sites that exist, the bet­ter. I would very like to thank Da Tech Guy for the oppor­tu­nity to spread my mes­sage of free­dom and con­sti­tu­tional prin­ci­ples on this website.

For many years I’ve been attempting to raise the alarm about the loss of our rights and our freedoms.  You would expect that my posts would be met with outrage by my Facebook friends or Twitter followers, who should have notice the same erosion of our rights. You would expect most of my friends would share my concerns.  Unfortunately that is not the case at all.  Most often my post is met with silence and apathy.  Occasionally I get into arguments with friends who side with those who are robbing us of our freedoms.  At times I do get discouraged but I refuse to give up.  For inspiration I reflect on a quote by that great philosopher Tim Allen from the movie Galaxy Quest: “Never give up, never surrender.”

Most people are not aware of what they’ve lost.  Very few schools teach civics any more.  Instead they teach the politically correct, liberal revisionist interpretation of the Constitution.  Our founding principles have been completely dismissed by our education establishment in the name of the tired liberal cliché: they were originated by a bunch of white supremacist, slave holders.

Instead of the virtues of our founding principles and our remarkable Constitution, educators now praise that deeply flawed and deadly political philosophy known as socialism.  Instead of championing free speech, students are now taught that their feelings are far more important than everyone else’s rights.  Individual, God given natural rights have now been replaced by collective rights granted to us exclusively by the government.

It is not just teachers that are brainwashing entire generations.   Hollywood and the rest of the entertainment industry are also guilty. Whenever a conservative or a libertarian comes out of the political closet they are ostracized and denied future roles.  Liberals enjoy a virtual monopoly over the entertainment industry and they use that monopoly to spread their liberal ideals. .

Liberals also enjoy a virtual monopoly over the news industry.  With this last election the American news media lost the vast majority of its remaining credibility.  They are now poling about the same as leprosy.  Despite these miserable poll numbers it is nearly impossible for one person to compete with the avalanche of biased news.  That’s the biggest problem I face.   I’m just one person trying to spread a message that a sizable percentage of my right of center Facebook friends agree with.  Unfortunately they remain silent.  They do not share my posts or share similar posts even though they are just as unhappy as I am with the state of things.  I get into epic debates with my liberal friends but never receive any backup from my conservative and libertarian friends.  If you have friends like me that try to spread the word please help them by sharing their posts and helping in the debates.  That could make a huge difference.

I try to experiment with different ways of getting my message out on Facebook.  Another quote I draw inspiration from comes from Clint Eastwood in the movie Heartbreak Ridge: “improvise, adapt, overcome.”  I try to not only inform, but also entertain my friends.

Facebook and Twitter are not my outlets for spreading my Constitution message.  I created a very successful website Constitution Mythbuster.   Please check it out.  WordPress make it easy to start your own website, please do so, the more conservative and libertarian websites that exist, the better.  I would very like to thank Da Tech Guy for the opportunity to spread my message of freedom and constitutional principles on this website.
