Wind speeds of 100 miles per hour. Torrential rainfall and flooding, causes property destruction which totals countless millions of dollars. The human tragedy lends itself to unspeakable sadness. During such an event, can even the mightiest oak withstand nature’s fury? With deep roots, thick bark, density of fiber and infallible stature, the survival of this species has been ensured.

Now again, the elements of a perfect storm is brewing from sea to shining sea.  Reminiscent of colonial America, the forecast shows dark clouds of religious intolerance coupled with a high probability of onerous taxation. The barometer indicates low to moderate self-determination caused by elected officials who are unwilling to act on behalf of the electorate; but to their own gratification. On the horizon, a category five governmental tyranny is imminent.

To brace against and withstand the onslaught of the gale force winds, will require one to be deeply rooted in the understanding of the following words and the reasons why they were written. In part:

“When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation -…”

To discount or ignore the wail of early warning sirens is foolhardy. Remaining blissfully ignorant to relevant social and political matters displays an imprudent attitude to one’s civic duties, thereby jeopardizing individual freedoms, as well as the freedoms of the society at large. The final effect of this imprudence produces an omnipresent entity with an insatiable appetite for dominance, oppression and uncontrolled growth.

An interesting dichotomy is now presented. Man’s yearning for individuality and self-governance by; a governmental body which represents the disparate interests of the citizenry. Should the two fronts collide, the result would traumatize at least, and possibly devastate a civilized society. Where is the shelter from this perfect storm? America’s founding documents will satisfy this impasse.

So with the first distant rumble against national sovereignty, before the stratus clouds of fiscal irresponsibility begin to downpour and before the winds of change blow us off course, We, the People, must relegate the government to an amorphous role in society.  With the deep roots of the early Patriots, we must unfurl the umbrella of freedom. Stand tall against the invective offered to wilt principled resolve, and focus on the rainbow of Liberty!
