What are the right reasons for activism, one might ask themselves. In this rapidly changing and diverse nation of myriad political philosophies, activism takes many forms.
Although many political theories and opinions are prevalent in America, The Constitution and the Bill of Rights have stood the test of time, for the republic to grow and prosper. America has weathered several wars, and a civil rights revolution, and has remained united and free. Americans haven’t agreed with one another on many issues but the Republic still stands and will remain standing, if each new generation of Americans does their part to respect the constitutional rights of others.
It is not necessary to agree with your neighbor, but one should be friendly and charitable and it is necessary to respect your neighbor’s Constitutional rights. America has become a nation of bureaucracy and regulations, many of which appear to supersede or negate our Constitutional rights, especially our First and Second Amendment rights. Our right to free speech, freedom of the press and our right to bears arms are tantamount to maintaining a free republic.
When these rights are blatantly and obtrusively violated by the obvious orders emanating from the very top of our government both locally and nationally, patriots must take actions that will continue to ensure their liberty. Recently patriotic groups, Christians and journalists were targeted by the IRS for audits. This is bureaucratic regulation “gone wild.” Recent legislation both local and national that infringe on our Constitutional rights have been accomplished by state and federal legislation.
The most blatant examples locally of infringement of our civil rights are: 2012 HB325, an unconstitutional bill that strips the rights of Delaware’s citizens, to constitutionally elect sheriffs, with full police powers that will act as “conservators of the peace,” in the counties in which they reside. The second example is the new “expanded background checks,” for lawful gun owners that definitely infringe on our Second Amendment rights to bear arms. Both of these are examples of statutory laws that violate both our State and Federal Constitutions.
The time has come to decide weather you want to be an activist and a patriot or you want to sit in the bleachers and watch the game. I have decided to be an activist for our great republic and say no, to becoming a socialist nation of no jobs, and increasing taxes and regulations. If we don’t take a stand and protect what our forefathers fought and died for, we don’t deserve to live free nation, because “Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Freedom.”
Regardless of what ethnic group you belong to, we are all Americans with Constitutional rights and live in a nation that is quickly becoming a Socialist state instead of a Free Republic. This is being accomplished by stealth with a two-party system that eats from the same table and drinks from the same trough. A new party has emerged as the fastest growing party in Delaware that will truly represent the people by electing incorruptible public servants. The office of an Inspector General is crucial to investigate corruption as well as a bill that would allow referendums on the ballot. The Independent Party of Delaware (IPoD) also supports, initiative to propose legislation and the right to recall corrupt elected officials.
IPoD is the new party that promotes these principles and many more. If you are an Unaffiliated Independent, with no party affiliation, please consider joining IPoD, while still maintaining your independence and also gaining the power of party affiliation. If you are Republican or Democrat that is tired of the Corrupt two-party system, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for information on IPoD’s platform
