When our leaders force us to see our world as they see their own, that is when we see a tyranny. Whether our leaders want to see it this way or not. That is exactly what is happening. This is why there are people around this country starting to raise not just hands in protest but their voices…. and I am scared of what will be raised next in order to be heard.
Anything to make our problems go away. There is not that one thing that will make everything better, but with patience and hard work one can make a bad life into something more manageable.
Make the best of a bad situation and work to dig yourself out of your situation. I firmly believe now it is weak to blame others for your position in life. When you start to blame others, it is hard to see for yourself your own ability to become a much greater person. I still do not agree with the quote, “life is what you make it.” at all. I just see to many situations where life really takes everything from a person or a child. I however do believe that if one is capable to make their life better. Then they can, if they have the courage, to go out and grab life with both hands and do not let go until you are content with the life you live.
With this mindset there are some powers that try to hold us down. I still think that if given the opportunity people can and will become a good and decent person. With all the different personalities in this country it is hard not to find people of all different types of mindsets.
That is the problem, we are different people with different opinions. With so many life situations that can either hurt us or make us better people. So many different truths in this country, so many different ideas in this world. It is hard to tell what is what. But the main ideal is what you believe to be true in your heart. And how to make yourself a better person. Too many people are looking to others to make themselves better.
With this comes the people that lose hope in the things they do. They might fail once, or twice, sometimes more, but a lot tend to give up and let life come to them. I like some of these people had given up hope. I still have some reserves, but I know what I want. I just have to find a way to make it happen. The creativity to find this is in each and everyone. We just have to find a decent way to bring this about.
I do not, however see a way to make everyone happy. “You can make some of the people happy all the time, all of the people happy at some time, but you can’t make all of the people happy all of the time.” People with the courage and the ability have to be able to see that happiness can only be brought upon by their own will. Not some big government big wig, not even our president can make us happy. Only we can, and putting faith into another person to make you happy can only lead to disappointment and an outlook in ones life of failure.
I originally started this with the intent on talking about our government. And the problems we face with government telling us what we need and forcing it down our throats. We do not need this, for people are strong, stronger than most of us even realize. We have just been forced to feel we need the government to care for us in all of these different situations.
This could not be further from the truth. The government needs us to care for it. With out us there would be no government. With out us to vote for them they would not be sitting in that office thinking of new ways to force their laws upon us. While I agree some laws are in place to protect people. I just do not agree with how they go about everything. And really when can everyone agree? I would say never we are too diverse a people.
I mean when people can force a person to lay down and take a shot because they killed someone. Believe it or not that is murder.(well to me it is) Is it justified, who knows, I say no. As much as I believe, others are on the other side. These people justify this by saying, “An eye for an eye.” The people who have committed these crimes against another might not find it too bad to sit there and be put to death. I just think they should be put into a cell and left there for the remainder of their lives. Because there is no satisfaction in seeing others die. I say this because even when a person has lost a loved one there is no bringing back them back. If knowing that my life caused another to be taken, I would not want that no matter what.
In this way I am different then some. While you may not agree with it it is just my opinion. That is why I love this country, because as bad as our freedoms have been taken for granted I will not be going to jail for questioning these practices. I feel that if the Federal Government decides to come into this argument I will find myself voicing my opinion even louder.
I think it falls within the individual State’s to figure out what it is best for their own people. In this matter it is easy to find States that do not agree or do agree with, and move there. This is the choice we have right now. When the Federal Government comes in and starts making all of these laws it becomes a hassle. As good as the Federal Government can be at times. It has broken a heck of a lot more than it has fixed.
The majority of Americans when given the choice,tend to make a good and decent decision and it was their choice. They do not need to be coerced into these decisions.
People have to understand that we are Americans, our Federal Government does not represent 100% of our feelings or thoughts. While the American Government does represent us around the world. The average American may not have the same feelings as these high profile politicians and lawmakers. We are way to diverse of a nation to follow one standard of living.
With that, there are people in power that relay their messages to the rest of the world that this is that is how “We The People” should be viewed. This is probably the biggest sham this country has to overcome. The more power and freedoms we give to the Federal Government the more they will take. We have seen this through our history and with that I hope people can look around and realize that these new laws and bills giving the Feds more powers will only come back to haunt the very people it was set up to help out.
I love this country not because of the government, the corporations, not even because of the diverse population, but the individuals that have helped build this country. If we are to become a stronger nation we have to focus on the individual freedoms we have enjoyed in the past. Will it be easy? No, not even close. Is it possible? Yes with the same determination of our ancestors and forefathers we can. It was never the government that brought us together it were those individuals that chose to voice their opinions and bring people of like minds to bring a better society. Why, because they were not forced to think a certain way to achieve their goals. They had the freedom to choose what was right for themselves.
