Three things America should know! Part 2
Host: Charlie “Charlie in the Box”
From a young age we are taught a lot of different things in the public school system. As you can tell by the way society is going we have not been given the correct tools to function as a free society. Too many people today believe that there government is there friend, a provider, or someone who knows best for the common good of mankind. But that couldn’t be farther from the truth. So this past week, I shot a video named: The Three things American’s should know. The first thing that I thought was we need to start understanding governments as a whole. Secondly what is money and where does it come from? Third and last would be to have faith in God and not religion. Read more “Three things America should know! Part 2”
Founding Fathers on Tyranny!
Host: Charlie “Charlie in the Box”
Thomas Jefferson said, “all tyranny needs to gain a foot hold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” … And what I think he meant by that is when good men and women with strong morals and values are confronted with the truth of alternative motives of their government and big business, not conspiracy but facts, and after all that they stay silent, that’s all that darkness needs to consume our lives. Aka, tyranny. But only if they didn’t stay silent things could change. Read more “Founding Fathers on Tyranny!”
John Adams, a signer of the Declaration of Independence wrote to his wife Abigail:
The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.
Freedom, independence, liberty is all about no control by government or any other entity and the chance to practice our own rights and powers. Freedom gives us the power to exercise our rights, desires, or the like. Independence is not only lack of restrictions but also the ability to stand alone, not propped up by anyone or anything else, such as government or unwanted laws. Independence allows us to think alone giving all of us new ideas, discoveries, and inventions. Liberty, allows us to govern ourselves.
John Adams prediction was off by two days. From the outset, Americans celebrated independence on July 4, the date shown on the Declaration of Independence, rather than on July 2, the date the resolution of independence was approved in a closed session of Congress.
John Adams died 50 years later on the same day: July 4, 1826
Democracy in America. In America you have the right to vote, to state your opinion, or your belief’s in the matter of which you are voting on. Gay rights, abortions, or even voting on the representatives that best share your values. How is that democracy been treating you in the last four or five decades. If you wanted to, we could go back even further….a century as a matter of fact. It just doesn’t seem like things are getting better. If I could say so myself, one of our founding fathers had a few things to say about democracies. That was John Adams; he said “Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself.” “There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide.” So this week’s show “Charlie in the Box” will be about Democracy in America and in which direction are we heading towards.
Thomas Jefferson “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; When the government fears the people, there is liberty”. George Washington, Thomas Paine, John Adams and many others had it right. On this episode of Charlie in the Box I will do my best to explain these quotes and others, what they mean to me and what I feel they should mean to you, the listener. So get your paper and pen and let’s get to work and take back are families, communities, then county.
