I want you to watch this video and then come back for my comments and an action plan:

Thomas Jefferson wrote:

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    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. 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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. — The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

Recognize those words? They are from our Declaration of Independence. I wrote in my New Declaration of Independence:

    Now this American Form of Government has become unresponsive and disrespectful of these ends, meaning that the American People have the Right and the Duty to recall or impeach all legislators, justices, and even the President who do not fulfill their solemn oaths to protect and defend the United States Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.

I am wondering how many liberties are going to have to be stripped from Americans before WE THE PEOPLE wake up. I spoke at one of the Tea Parties here in Pensacola, told them about Eddie and then I said something to the effect:

    “I find it ironic that in many Iraqi cities there is vibrant economic activity and the possibility of free market success and its potential to bring greater freedom to the Iraqi people is because of the liberty bought by America’s precious blood. And yet when and if our beloved service men and women return home, they find a nation whose own liberties are being stripped away all the while citizen apathy allows it. There is something terribly wrong in America today.”

If there is no citizen outrage, and I mean on a national level, over the treatment of this pastor, then these abusers will only be emboldened. We can have all the tea parties we want, send emails to everyone in our address book, blog until pigs fly, but if we do not let everyone within the chain of command of the Border Patrol and the Arizona Department of Public Safety know we are outraged and are watching the outcome of this brutality, then it will only get worse.
