I like the gist of this, but we need to remember that the ideal has NEVER been realized, not in the 1700’s, nor any time in between. This country came into existence only thru the genocide of the indigenous people of Turtle Island-otherwise known as north america.
From the very beginning this country was founded in the control of the land owning white males over everyone else-not a good thing.
The ideals that the experiment has allowed to grow from individual freedom, equality for all, democracy of all the people-many if not all of these came from the nations that were already here on this continent. These ideals were REAL and physically present in full form in some of those nations(like the Iroquois Confederacy under the Great Law of Peace).
The ideals are good, the dedication to bringing those ideals back into real physical expression instead of the growing fascism (fascism is the govt support of corporate control at the expense of the people) is a goal we can all agree on, I hope.
It is important tho, that we not lose sight of the fact that this country was founded on genocide, and expanded thru genocide and has continued to this very day to enact and enforce laws and regulations to steal land and sovereignty from the people and nations who were already living the ideals we hold dear.
Many of us in the liberty movement find ourselves searching for a distinct root cause of the trials and tribulations of American culture — the Holy Grail catalyst that, if unraveled, would save this country and heal the septic wounds covering the landscape of our hobbled society. The obvious answer would be to remove the global elites who are poisoning the well from the picture entirely. Yes, this has to be done eventually. However, we must also identify how those elites have been able to so thoroughly con the masses of this nation for so long.
