    Rumors of Freedom’s Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

    08/10/2009

    Call me old fashioned, but if I remember correctly the U.S. Constitution was drafted specifically to enumerate powers granted by the governed to their government. And it’s a very short list. Which, as far as I know, says nothing about mandatory taxpayer-subsidized, government-rationed universal health insurance.

    Thankfully, there are still many people in this country who understand that our freedom comes from negative rights, not corporatism or political payoffs. And everywhere those people are starting to wake up.

    See the pics below of two recent meetings packed with concerned activists.

    Meeting

    Tea

    In Macon County, NC the local FreedomWorks chapter recently hosted state Constitution Party chairman, Al Pisano (top). An overflow crowd was treated to a presentation on the myriad ways in which the federal government has overstepped its constitutional authority.

    Armed with new intellectual firepower, these activists can now continue their campaign to remind complacent Americans what our founders knew: That a government big enough to give them everything they want is powerful enough to take everything they have.

    And in Georgia, the Towne County Tea Party got together with local branches of FreedomWorks and the 912 Project for a joint venture they called the Take Back America Cause.

    The numerous volunteers who attended represent a sleeping giant that has finally been awakened to the shocking arrogance and fiscal recklessness of America’s political class.

    Unlike their opponents, these protesters are not paid. They are simply hardworking, taxpaying citizens brave enough to stand up and risk the ire of the left in pursuit of their common desire for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom.
