Excerpt from the Declaration of Independence…
“…That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, – That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
Warriors don’t all have historically warrior jobs.
Cops are no more a warrior because they wear a badge than a kid is a vampire on Halloween because he wears a mask.
Firefighters do not automatically become brave because they got their first paycheck. Soldiers become soldiers for a variety of reasons, most having very little to do with fighting and dying.
Warriors are citizens first. An employment choice, not generally associated with a warrior bent doesn’t preclude a citizen from adding warrior skills and mindset to their list of self development goals.
A citizen should take the warrior lifestyle seriously because he is a citizen, and not a subject. The power, in a constitutional republic, lies in the discretion of its’ citizenry.
Warriors exercise power with wisdom and restraint, using it at the best possible moment, with the right intention, and with all the might a warrior can muster. Citizens should exercise this power, this force, in defense of life, liberty and freedom.
The blood of a nation is the will that guides it. Will is demonstrated through force.
Voting is force. Physical combat is force. Speech is force. Force is what causes a thing to move. Exercise that force to move your country in the direction it should go.
Be a warrior mechanic, or trucker, or accountant, or nurse or whatever your vocation may be. Set your self at odds with anything that diminishes life and liberty. Sure it’s a fight, but you’re an aspiring warrior, it’s your birthright to defend the innocent and protect freedom…..millions of men died to give you that right. Have we forgotten the price that has been paid (and is still being paid) for our freedoms? Will we now let a federal government, or any form of government, now regulate these rights away? I think not. Not for me at least…
Be a warrior or be a “subject”…….it’s your choice!
