Are we a free people or are we sheep? I suggest that we may need a new preamble to the Constitution, and I offer this:

“We the Sheeple of the increasingly divided States, having realized that our union no longer strives for perfection; that our justice system has been perverted by corruption and cronyism; that a flood of illegal aliens and the Black Lives Matter movement have destroyed our domestic Tranquility; that we are no longer entitled to a common defense; that we have exchanged the idea of personal responsibility for the creation of a Welfare state, undermining our national productivity, increasing our national debt and denying us the Blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do now relegate our Constitution to the ash heap of history unless we open our eyes and do something to stop this madness.”

A free people would not let themselves be denied the blessings of liberty by the likes of Biden, Pelosi, Schumer and others of this ilk. A free people would not permit misguided individuals such as these to abuse their positions of authority without being held to account. A free people would not bend to their dictates but would instead stand up to the tyranny. These abusers of power are more than incompetent. They are traitors.

They have themselves said that no one, particularly President Trump, is above the law. A free people would show these people that this applies to them as well. The demanding of a personal or family benefit in exchange for performing a public duty is a crime. Cowardice in the face of the enemy is also a crime under military law. Giving aid and comfort to the enemy is treason. These traitors have committed these crimes and much more. They must be held to account. Our credibility demands it.

May God forgive us for our careless stewardship of His gift of liberty. May He help us now as we strive to regain our liberty.
