Since We Daily Face New Abuses and Usurpations It Becomes Difficult to Remember Many of the Early Manifestations of Treachery

I happened across this old video this morning and, while watching it, feared that I might lose sight of how bad things are becoming because I might become too caught up in focusing on the latest betrayal. So I am posting this to help keep it fresh in my mind how long the list of grievances is.

It has been frequently
remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this
country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important
question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of
establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether
they are forever destined to depend for their political
constitutions on accident and force. If there be any truth in the
remark, the crisis at which we are arrived may with propriety be
regarded as the era in which that decision is to be made; and a
wrong election of the part we shall act may, in this view, deserve
to be considered as the general misfortune of mankind. Federalist #1

h/t: Legalize the Constitution
