I find myself wondering quite a bit about how we got to where we are here in America, certain things little things over time that slowly took hold of our society that most persons overlook or just plain ignore like federal income tax it was first enacted in 1862 to support the Union's Civil War effort. It was then eliminated in 1872, revived in 1894, then declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court the following year. In 1913, the 16th Amendment to the Constitution made it permanent. Gun control laws, how to handle your children, dismissing and or buying out great ideas like tesla had about electricity for free, Too many to list but my point is here in America we started out with an excellent idea for a nation to be free from ideology's that hinder an individual s rights as a human being, The government is there to support the people of this nation not controll them and their lives in my mind we are on our way to a totalitarianism rule. Peace&Love,Semper.

America, the promised land, the land of bounty. That is how I learned about it. Is there something worth sharing about the land of the free, the freedom provider and emancipator of oppressed nations?
