I don't think your crazy....yet
And I don't think the Declaration can be improved upon...you probably don't either. But what we could create would be a Contract for Leadership that outlines our values and principles....if an incumbent or would be politician wants the support of our group locally or nationally they would have to sign on the dotted line. No signature, no support.....if they violate the contract while in office we actively seek and support a replacement?
Peter, I like your style, but you have to be careful talking like that...you'll be on one of the early lists :-)
The men that founded this nation came from a certain stock, and were a self-selected group who chose to be here because of their intense desire for liberty. That simply isn't the case now. That's one problem...
Two world wars and a civil war have killed most of the men with any sense of the spirit of our founding fathers, and we're left with a docile population that's too fat, drunk and stupid to realize how it all came to be. Most folks, even most quasi-conservatives, won't stand up for this nation because of fear. Fear of losing what little they have. Fear of being unpopular, or the very real fear in Centre County of becoming ostracized. Nobody will stand up against things they feel are wrong because they KNOW there will be a terrible backlash. Most people just don't want to take a stand when it means becoming uncomfortable, and that's the problem. Revolutions don't happen until the people are starving, and that kind of revolt seldom works out right. The American revolution was unique, because it was a unique set of circumstances.
In my opinion, there's no solution to our current state of affairs. We are outnumbered and trapped. The cowards outnumber the strong-willed. The people on the dole outnumber those who produce. One needs only look at past civilizations to see that this is nothing new. Rome is one example, but there are others. We'll meet a similar end, I'm sure, probably by assimilation into China and India.
The time has come for us to survive--to keep our way of thinking and our culture alive. Otherwise, it will be lost to assimilation. In the past, this meant running away, literally. When my ancestors built this nation (I am not the son of immigrants, rather, colonists) they fled a variety of oppression and slavery. The trouble is, there's nowhere left to run. We can't stand and fight, because we'll be annihilated, and I have no desire to become a martyr.
My advice is simple: stop trying to convert lilly-livered liberals to your way of thinking. Weaklings will always be weaklings, and trying to turn a sheep into a Shepherd is a fool's errand.
Instead, try to make your way as best you can, consider this economy akin to the wilderness our ancestors made their own, and start making babies as though your life depended on it. Everything else is just a distraction.
Here's my 2 cents on the issue presented...
The community here would be well served by creating an atmosphere for the sharing of common experiences and, where possible, make it a conduit to extend mutual aid and 'support' when called for by circumstance.
