This is the blog that should not be. Along with thousands of others like it scattered through cyberspace, it should not be here.

It’s here because somewhere along the line between 1787 and the present, a number of Americans lost their way. Each time a member of that august body called Federal government took a wrong turn along the path of destiny, another chip fell from the corner stone of Liberty.

We are now at a point where the non – political, the a-political, and the just plain apathetic citizen is beginning to see something is wrong. That foundation cornerstone of Liberty has been chiseled and chipped to the point of collapse. The vast majority of citizens either didn’t hear the ring of steel against stone, or chose to ignore it. Now the chickens are coming home to roost, so to speak, and finally people are finding their voices.

Since 1776 our country has survived many perils, some being very close calls. Everyone recognized the dangers from without, few sensed the peril from within. For without a doubt our system of government has grown to the point where we are in grave danger of becoming a socialist nation, and time has proven that socialist governments do not last. Anyone remember the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics?

Right after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Japan's Admiral Yamamoto said: "I fear we have awakened a sleeping tiger and filled it with a great resolve." My only hope is that the tiger again awakens and fills the citizens of this great nation with the resolve to bring to heel a government so sadly off course.
