To the Editor:
Watching the YouTube videos (since removed) of the “jack booted thugs” trampling on our Third, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Tenth Amendment natural rights recently in the greater Boston area, I experienced a great sadness. Sadness because peace officers, who took an oath to support and defend the Constitution, believed that they could commit these unconstitutional crimes; sadness that there has been no great public outcry against these atrocities; sadness that media commentators and officeholders haven’t spoken out vociferously against these fascist terror tactics against the American people; sadness mostly because despite the facade of liberty we still enjoy, all of these acts and attitudes mean that we have lost the republic.
What comes next won’t be pleasant. I know that I will continue to work to restore the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights that the founders handed down to us. What will you do? Choose wisely.
Benjamin Franklin once said: “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
