America. We are the land of the free; home of the brave. We have been found by many, and we have been lost by many more. There has never been a greater time than now, when America must stand together as the strong and independent nation that it was born to become; an adversary of tyranny, terorrism, and corruption. We must stand our ground together, now, against all forces that wish to undermine the gentle liberty and wise justice of the people.
Awaken now, oh land of immigrants. You are the Sleeping Giant needed to surmount the ocean that is ahead of you. It is a vast ocean, but you must conquer all of it. We cannot falter.
We must remember who WE are , and We must not forget OUR past. America is the lighthouse of the world. Many love us, many hate us, many fear us, but we cannot be ignored. There are people all around the world who will spend, and have spent, their entire lives, trying to bring us down. They will never succeed. Our greatness comes from our goodness.
So I ask you, what does America mean to you? Wake up America.
America is the United States Constitution…
….United…think on that for a while…
That beautiful constitution that has been protecting our rights since before we were born. It is the cornerstone of our democracy. It is the most sacred document ever written in history; protecting people from the whims and follies, lashes and tortures, narcissicms and nepotisms, greed, lusts, and humors of the ‘so called’ nobility, . Without it, history repeats itself.
So we must ask ourselves:
Are we adhering to our abiding constitution? The answer, I think it’s safe to say, is NO!
We will leave that for another day…
Check out the Rat Park experiment:
Rat Park was an experiment conducted in the 1970s to evaluate whether drug addiction was due to drugs or living conditions. It was performed Canadian psychologist Bruce K. Alexander and his colleagues at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada.
Here are the details of the experiment:
In Rat Park, the rats could drink a fluid from one of two drop dispensers, which automatically recorded how much each rat drank. One dispenser contained a morphine solution and the other plain tap water.
Alexander designed a number of experiments to test the rats’ willingness to consume the morphine. The Seduction Experiment involved four groups of rats. Group CC was isolated in laboratory cages when they were weaned at 22 days of age, and lived there until the experiment ended at 80 days of age; Group PP was housed in Rat Park for the same period; Group CP was moved from laboratory cages to Rat Park at 65 days of age; and Group PC was moved out of Rat Park and into cages at 65 days of age.
The caged rats (Groups CC and PC) took to the morphine instantly, even with relatively little sweetener, with the caged males drinking 19 times more morphine than the Rat Park males in one of the experimental conditions. The rats in Rat Park resisted the morphine water. They would try it occasionally — with the females trying it more often than the males — but they showed a statistically significant preference for the plain water. He writes that the most interesting group was Group CP, the rats who were brought up in cages but moved to Rat Park before the experiment began. These animals rejected the morphine solution when it was stronger, but as it became sweeter and more dilute, they began to drink almost as much as the rats that had lived in cages throughout the experiment. They wanted the sweet water, he concluded, so long as it did not disrupt their normal social behavior. Even more significant, he writes, was that when he added a drug called Naloxone, which negates the effects of opioids, to the morphine-laced water, the Rat Park rats began to drink it.
In another experiment, he forced rats in ordinary lab cages to consume the morphine-laced solution for 57 days without other liquid available to drink. When they moved into Rat Park, they were allowed to choose between the morphine solution and plain water. They drank the plain water. He writes that they did show some signs of dependence. There were “some minor withdrawal signs, twitching, what have you, but there were none of the mythic seizures and sweats you so often hear about …”
Alexander believes his experiments show that animal self-administration studies provide no empirical support for the theory of drug-induced addiction. “The intense appetite of isolated experimental animals for heroin in self-injection experiments tells us nothing about the responsiveness of normal animals and people to these drugs. Normal people can ignore heroin … even when it is plentiful in their environment, and they can use these drugs with little likelihood of addiction … Rats from Rat Park seem to be no less discriminating.”
Now isn’t that interesting? We really can learn a lot from animals, even from rats. Rats are social beings just like we are.
After this experiment was done, Portugal even successfully implemented a program of community integration, while at the same time removing its ban on drugs. This system has proven itself to work phenomenally. Drug dependency and drug-related offences have dropped drastically in Portugal. This is because drug dependency is not an individual issue, it is a societal issue. When society is functioning adequately for its citizens, they will feel purposeful and needed. This is how people are supposed to feel, and when they feel this way they react in supportive ways. Perhaps if this were the case, people would also stop shooting one another (think about that one too).
Really, when you think about it, the only advantage that can be seen anywhere of making any drug illegal is for the government. It gives them the authority to arrest minorities and send them to prisons, where they can then use them in any way they choose, like for cheap labor (sounds almost like slavery). In fact, the thirteenth amendment states that enslavement of a person is illegal unless that person has been imprisoned for a crime. It makes sense why so many minorities are in prison for drug offenses. This also is not a conspiracy. It happened with the Chinese, the Mexicans, and now with blacks and latinos. It is history. Drug bans are a political tactic.
Another huge problem with banning drugs is that it takes the revenue out of the hands of government and puts it in the hands of major drug cartels and other criminals, giving them most of the money they need to become heavily armed (giving them a huge amount of power and control). We can also see this in history when we look at the beginiings of the American mob during alcohol prohibition.
Government is ‘supposed to’ protect people from each other, not from themselves. So why does it make sense that there is a ban on alcohol and not marijuana? Actually, I think someone who consumes alcohol is way more dangerous to others than someone who consumes many of the other drugs that have been made illegal. However, from the governments point of view, people who drink are easier to control, and governments love to keep the people under their hand of domination. How easy is it to tell if someone is heavily intoxicated? A simple on the spot breathalizer will do the trick.
Our constitution gives us the ability to fight for our natural rights by smacking down the government when it gets out of line. We should be using it to our advantage every chance we get. It is the reason why America is so great. Let’s stand together by our constitution, not divide because of all those who wish to undermine it. Standing together in support of our constitution is the only way we have a chance at everyone having the natural liberties given to them by God.
God bless America.
