Knowledge is Power
By Joel Williams
At one time or another in our lives, every one of us has heard the saying, “Knowledge is Power.” What does it mean in the context of education on this site? The type of knowledge we talk about here means personal freedom for you and those you hold dear.
The explanation is, “Not all liars are politicians but all politicians are liars.” The reason politicians are that way is power and wealth. The longer they stay in office, the more power they have and the wealthier they become. They will say or do anything to insure they are re-elected. So that means if we haven’t educated ourselves to the facts, politicians can say anything they want to say and we buy into it because we don’t know the difference.
Here’s where the loss of personal freedom comes in. If we don’t know any better, we let them pass whatever laws they please. Passing laws? Isn’t that what they are supposed to do? Yes, of course, but the motivation to stay in office more often than not dictates what laws are passed. Most of these laws are nothing more than political favors designed to reward a voting block, a special interest or campaign contributors.
You might be saying, “How can someone doing a political favor affect me?” A very recent example is the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obama Care. It’s one of the biggest frauds every perpetuated on Americans. Remember the promises: Everyone is going to have healthcare. The Cost of health care is coming down for everyone. The truth is that not everyone is going to have health care and the cost for the average American family, depending on what state you live in, is already well above what it was before the law was passed - and the scary part is this law hasn’t been fully implemented yet. It’ s going to cost every one of us big time and the quality of care we get is going to go down. That’s just one example of uninformed Americans letting elected officials get away with passing really bad law.
Every time we allow politicians to pass laws that are not in the best interest of the country, our freedom is lessened. Every time we don’t make our representatives uphold the Constitution, as they have sworn to do, our freedom is lessened.
So the education on this site is here to help you become informed, which will allow you to decide what is the truth by knowing the facts. That will enable you to protect “freedom” for yourself and your children and grandchildren.
