Pay attention as rights are eaten away

Are we to be prisoners in our own country? Will illegal aliens be our jailers? We are pushed to have federal IDs and driver's licenses to verify our citizenship.

What's next? Computer chips under the skin with our financial, medical, political and work information? Are we to be put into an identity prison without parole? Some states refuse to oblige, so if we refuse, it will no longer be possible for us to freely move around the country.

We are not the criminals. This is just an endless link of a chain of socialism, high taxes, proposed universal health care and religious intolerance. It is not in our best interest as a nation to allow the continuation of this attack on our Constitution, our public education and our faith.

We cannot continue to accept laws that hinder our pursuit of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Silence is not an option. Our worst nightmare is the ignorance of the events surrounding us in a time of trial. Do we stand or cower in a corner?
