Because freedom rocks and globalism sucks. LIBERTY means freedom and justice (rule of law) for all, not a select few. Liberty stands against tyranny and all systems that would oppress and enslave populations. Liberty protects individual rights, enables innovation and raises living standards. Our liberties, as enumerated in the U.S. Constitution guarantee freedom of speech, due process, free exercise of religion and self-determination. And these, our most fundamental freedoms, are under threat NOW.
While Globalism promises a “One World” utopia, it is in fact an ideology fundamentally at odds with sovereignty and our Constitution1. Thanks to “globalization” and international trade agreements like NAFTA, Western society is rapidly diverging from the course set by America’s Founding Fathers. On a line graph moving from “free society” to “tyranny”, we are near the puck end of a hockey stick. Political Correctness has paved the way and silenced the true liberals whose philosophy has been “live and let live”. The damage has been done and we no longer have the luxury of quiet tolerance.
The U.S. Constitution is the greatest expression and protection of human freedoms that the world has yet known. It is time to hold our elected employees accountable to their oath to that document, now.
1 See A Case Against Globalism by Emina Melonic| November 30th, 2017: “The concept of globalism burdens American society, and this encumbrance comes mainly from the political and social Left. We rarely discuss what globalism is and many Americans don’t seem to see the grave dangers that it represents. We hear phrases like “global citizenship,” or “citizen of the world,” which are supposed to evoke an air of cosmopolitanism, or signal some admirable openness to compassionate dialogue among people and nations but these intellectual sensations are deceptive. Globalism is not that. “
The world is a dangerous place; not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.
