It is time for all the people of the United States of America to stand on their own two feet.
It is time for all the people of the United States of America to take control of their own lives.
It is time for all the people of the United States of America to remember what Independence means.

Independence does not only mean that our country is free from the influence of foreign countries, which when we open our eyes to reality we as a country are not truly free from foreign influence, but we as a people living in the United States of America are free to pursue our dreams and desires. Independence comes with consequences, with Independence each and every one of us has to take on the responsibility for our choices and actions. If we want Independence then we have to take on the responsibility associated with Independence because the two can not be separated. 

To many things in our society have become dependent on one of the most destructive forces against Independence, The GovernmentThomas Paine stated "Government in its best state is but a necessary evil, in its worst state an intolerable one."  I submit at the present time our government has progressed to an intolerable evil. Our government has placed taxes on the citizens of this country that far exceed their Constitutional powers and the intent of our Founding Fathers. Our government has progressed from simply taxing the citizenry to pay for the services as specified in the Constitution to using the taxes to redistribute the wealth of the citizenry as the elected officials see sit. Why is it that the people of the United States of America are so willing to allow elected officials to redistribute the wealth? My answer is because as a society we have willing chose to allow the government to take the responsibility for us. We as a society have chose to let some one or some thing else to make the decisions so that we do not have to be responsible for the out come of those decisions.

Some will say the this is not our fault because the government has been teaching each generation that the government will catch them if they should fall. Those who say this need to look themselves in the mirror and ask "
am I blaming some one else for my own lack of interest?". Lets face it, the only people responsible for the state our country is in is "US". As far as I am concerned it is no longer who is responsible but how are we going to fix it.

Independence is what makes not only our country great, it also is what makes the people great. Just look at all the great things that have been created and invented in our country and how they have affected the rest of the world. I am not saying that these invention would never have come along, but they would not have been found as quickly with out the Independence the people of the Unite States of America use to have.

So it is time for the all the people of the United States of America to make a choice:

    1. Do you chose to be dependent on the Federal Government?

    2. Do you chose Independence?
