Letter from a Dear Friend

Fellow Countrymen, The following will serve as my last will and testament. I am dying. It will not be long now until I am gone. No doctor or politician has the ability to fix what is wrong with me. I leave to you nothing that I have not given already. I have given to you freedom yet you have chosen slavery. I have given to you liberty yet you have chosen tyranny. I have given you the ability to choose your own leaders but you have allowed the system to be high jacked leaving you no real choice at all. My passing is a direct consequence of your actions. I have given you freedom, the freedom to choose the things that are best for you and your family. I have given you the freedom to worship as you please, the freedom to speak what you believe, to write what you see fit, to gather as you’d like and to speak up to any powers that would prohibit the above. The freedom to defend yourself and those you love against any and all who would seek to cause you harm, regardless of their position. I have given to you the freedom to peaceably live in your home without it being invaded by government officials either physically or through the means of technology. I have given you the right to due process of the law, a right dating back to the Magna Carta and the right to be judged by your peers. Most importantly I have given you the freedom to self-govern in whichever locality you choose to live. In spite of these freedoms you have chosen slavery. Not slavery in the sense of chains and cages but a type much more nefarious. You have surrendered your ability to think for yourself and speak what you believe for you know not what it is that you believe in. You believe what you are told to believe and you think what has already been thought for you. You have surrendered your ability to defend yourselves because you believe that someone else can protect you. You have surrendered your ability to live peacefully in your own homes. Fear has caused you to openly welcome your would be protectors whenever they see fit to stop by. This same fear has led you to believe that you are safe while others simply disappear taken by a government that has your best interest at heart. These protectors do not care for your survival. They demand your loyalty. That is not freedom it is slavery and the most dangerous cage is that which you refuse to see. I have given you liberty yet under the guise of equality you have chosen tyranny. You have the liberty to succeed or fail based on your own merit. Liberty is the ability to pursue your own happiness. If you fail to catch it you should try harder. Instead you choose to alter your definition of happiness and believe that those who have worked to catch theirs should supplement yours. You are not strong enough to succeed on your own so you choose leaders who promise to take from those who have. When the takers have taken too much and the givers have no more to give there will be bloodshed in the streets. Then you will know tyranny for you will no longer be useful to the tyrants who actively sought your allegiance. When you finally meet tyranny you will know misery and it will be too late. I have given you principles yet you choose to ignore them. I have given you the resources to feed and warm hundreds of millions yet you choose to scoff at them. These are all choices that you have made but you have been lied to. You have been led to believe that there are only two choices when in reality you have been able to choose whatever and whoever you desire all along. The answer is not red or blue. The direction is not left or right. The answer is not forward or backwards. The answer is liberty and it can still be yours. I am 236 years old but I do not have to die. I am an idea and ideas can live forever. They just need to be rediscovered. Yours truly, The Constitution of the United States of America
