Is it true that natural born citizens no longer cherish their personal freedom? What about the hordes of immigrant refugees that flock across our borders, do they have a desire to embrace the goals set down by the Founding Fathers or are these principles foreign to their mindset? Freedom is a concept that has many meaning to different peoples. However, the essence of historic and traditional freedom is always consistent with the way the individual is treated by the government that claims jurisdiction over their citizenship. Today, being a legal citizen matter little in a society that refuses to defend its borders and opens the floodgates to aliens who have as much in common with descendants of the original thirteen colonies as a transplant from a different galaxy.
Freedom shares the same definition as obscenity. When Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart stated, “I know it when I see it”, he inadvertently provided a clue on how to view freedom. Sadly, society pushes the former, while extinguishing the latter. Look no further than to the Gallop Poll, Americans Less Satisfied With Freedom.

“Fewer Americans are satisfied with the freedom to choose what they do with their lives compared with seven years ago — dropping 12 percentage points from 91% in 2006 to 79% in 2013. In that same period, the percentage of Americans dissatisfied with the freedom to choose what they do with their lives more than doubled, from 9% to 21%.”

Definitive assessments as to the nature of a national issue, seldom reached by taking a sample of public sentiment, can be valuable as a gauge of trends and direction of attitudes. Expressing doubt regarding prospects for a better future is significant. If the chances for upward mobility are bleak, the unwashed masses will do little to clean up the social, political and economic system and demand that the country returns to an opportunity society.
The courageous publisher of The American Dream, Michael Snyder, always reliable for insightful information and inferences, makes important points in the article, 79 Percent Of Americans Are Completely Okay With The Current Level Of Tyranny.

“If most people believe that everything is “just fine”, then our leaders are going to feel free to keep doing the same things that they have been doing.

That is why it is so frustrating that so many American “sheeple” appear to be so apathetic about the loss of our freedoms and our liberties.”
