Very rarely do I have a dream that will wake me and that I will remember every detail. This morning such a dream occurred.
I will not go into every detail, because as in all dreams there is great feats that happen that would not have happened in life. The gist of the dream was, I was watching a friends belonging and it js placed in my yard for safe keeping. My family left for the evening and I was watching TV alone. You know that feeling when you think something or someone is watching you, well I sensed that and I turned to see a police officer standing in my living-room. Question on my mind is why are you in my home? I then looked out the door and he had some friends (not officers) loading my friends belonging on to a truck. He threw me money for what he thought the belonging was worth. He left, there was no threatening other than that he was in my house when not invited and he took what did not belong to him or I. After this the dream gets a bit crazy, some how I find him again and I hold him down to the ground for what is hours (yeah I know this wouldn’t happen in life). In the morning I finally get help and there is a big arrest scene hollywood style, choppers and all.
I was pondering what in the world this dream might mean. I believe dreams such as these have a message or they would not be remembered. My personal take on is just this:
I think the friends belonging represents freedom, for we are the guardians of freedom, we don’t guard it just for ourselves we guard it for our friends and the generations to come. Sitting at the TV watching without regard to what was happening around me I was letting down my guard so that some one could quietly walk in and take that freedom away and offer me a price for it! Is that not what is happening to our country today? We are quietly giving up our freedoms in trade for governmental control.
Holding down the officer for hours could just mean my feeling of frustration and isolation. Holding back the avalanche much like the little dutch boy held back the flood with his finger.
I truly think we are nearing the bottom of the slippery slope and it will be a up hill battle, but it I believe it is a battle that is winnable . I don’t think entitlements and such are a way to make us strong, I deserve to be happy and the government owes me this! The government only owes you the right to seek happiness as the Declaration of Independence so boldly says”We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Read the Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights for yourself. See how much we are loosing slowly, as we complacently sit by.
This country is great, but she is becoming a mere shadow of what she once was. She has called out and righted many wrongs. She has sought equality for all of her citizens. Yet as we speak the lines between the three branches of our government are weakening, if not being deleted. Some how it has become an almost expected thing for the judicial branch to make laws, something that was never intended by our founders or by the Constitution which is the standard for which all things are to be proved by , not used as a changing document that suites special interests as they come along. Judges are bring to play foreign laws that have nothing to do with our Constitution.
The Executive branch feels it need not consult the other branches before it acts and the Legislative branch well, I am not sure what is going on there they surely isn’t paying heed to those who have put them were they are.
This battle can be won, but it must be won by the citizens at the poles. It is sad that somewhere between 30% and 50% of the registered voters vote and only about 71% of eligible American’s are registered. To read more on registration and voting click here.
The United States is worth saving, will you step up and do you’re part? Will I be left alone to hold the tide back? What will the ending be?
Good Evening and God Bless
