Taken from an email I received recently.
Does the Government work for us or we work for the Government?
What if the Constitution no longer applied?
What the whole purpose of the Constitution was to limit the Government?
What if Congress’s enumerated powers in the Constitution no longer limited Congress, but were actually used as a justification to extend Congress’s authority over every realm of human life?
What if the President, meant to be an equal to Congress had, instead become a democratically-elected term-limited monarch?
What if the President assumed that everything he did was legal, just because he’s the President?
What if he could interrupt your regularly-scheduled radio and TV programming for a special message from him?
What if he could declare war on his own?
What if he could read your emails and your texts without a search warrant?
What if he could kill you without warning?
What if the Supreme Court justices no longer looked to the Constitution to determine the Constitutionality of the law but rather simply, to what justices who preceded them thought about it?

so distorted over the past two hundred years, as to be unrecognizable by the Founders?
What if the Fifty States were no longer
sovereign entities, equals to each other and parents of the Federal Government they voluntarily constituted?
What if the states were mere provinces of a totally nationalized and fully nationalized government?
What if the Constitution was amended
stealthily, not by Constitutional
amendments, duly ratified by the States but by the constant and persistent expansion of the Federal Government’s role in our lives?
What if the Federal Government decided if its own powers were proper and Constitutional?
What if the Constitution were no longer the supreme law of the land?
What if you needed a license from the Government to speak, to assemble or to protest against the Government?
What if the Government didn’t like what you’d planned to say, so it didn’t give you the license?
What if the right to keep and bear arms only applied to the Government?
What if Posse Commitatus, the Federal Law that prohibits our military from occupying our streets were no longer in effect?
What if the Government considered the military an adequate dispenser of domestic law enforcement?
What if cops looked and acted like troops and you couldn’t distinguish the military from the police?
What if you were not secure in your person, in your papers, in your property?
What if federal agents could write their own search warrants, in defiance of the Constitution?
What if the government could decide when you were and were not entitled to a jury trial?
What if the government decided to take your property whenever it wanted?
What the if the government could continue prosecuting you until it got the verdict it wanted?
What if the government could force you to testify against yourself, simply by labeling you a “Domestic Terrorist”?
What if the government could torture you until you said what the Government wanted to hear?
What if people running for President actually supported torture?
What if the Government tortured your
children, to get to you?
What if Government judges and government lawyers intimidated juries into convicting the innocent?
What if the government could send you to your death and your innocence meant nothing, so long as the government’s procedures were followed?
What if America’s prison population, the largest in the world was a cruel and unusual way for a country to be “free”?
What if half the prison population never harmed anyone but themselves?
What if the people had no rights, except those the Government chose to let them have?
What if the States that no rights, except to do is the Federal Government commanded?
What if our elected officials didn’t really live among us – but instead all had their hearts and homes in Washington DC?
What the Government could strip you of your rights, because of where your mother was when you were born?
What if the Income Tax was Unconstitutional?
What if the states were convinced to give up their representation in Congress?
What the Government tried to ban you from using a substance in your body that is older than the Government, itself?
What if voting didn’t mean anything anymore because both political parties stand for Big Government?
What if the Government could write any law or regulate any behavior in tax any event, the Constitution be damned?
What if the Government was the reason we don’t have a Constitution anymore?
What if you could love your country – but hate what the Government is done to it?
What if sometimes, to love your country, you had to alter or abolish the Government?
What if Jefferson was right?
What if, “That Government is best, which governs the least?”
What if I’m right?
What if the government is wrong what it is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong?
What if it is better to perish, fighting for freedom than to live as a slave?
What if freedom’s greatest hour of danger is now?
