4th of July and Freedom From Tyranny

The Founding Fathers designed America’s republic to be a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Not a government of bureaucrats, by politicians, and for lobbyists.

America’s Founding Fathers drafted and approved the Bill of Rights to protect freedoms that tyrants in Europe liked to take away. Thus, the U.S. constitution guaranteed things like:

  1. Free speech; freedom of the press; freedom to peacefully assemble
  2. Right to bear arms
  3. No unreasonable searches
  4. Cannot be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process
  5. Powers not enumerated in the constitution are reserved to the states or to the people. (Which means the government’s powers are supposed to be limited.)

Modern bureaucrats routinely violate one or more provisions of the Bill of Rights such as conducting unreasonable searches by tracking people 24/7 and depriving citizens of liberty without due process.

The police state is emboldened by unlimited power and trillions of dollars in annual spending. As the saying goes, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

The adversary is no longer European kings but Americans’ own government. Regulators snoop on our bank transactions, record phone calls, and monitor emails — all without a court warrant.

The Founding Fathers put the above constitutional protections to (attempt to) prevent tyrants from potentially ruining people’s lives. Unfortunately, U.S. politicians, bureaucrats, and court system don’t follow them.

The 4th of July gives us a moment to appreciate these guarantees of liberty.
