“But as the king of the vultures would be no less bent upon preying on the flock than any of the minor harpies, it was indispensable to be in a perpetual attitude of defence against his beak and claws.” ~John Stuart Mill, “On Liberty”, 1859
We all know the actors’ identities in this quote (harpies are mythical winged food snatchers) :] Oh, our indispensable tool for the “perpetual attitude of defence” is of course the U.S. Constitution, and the willingness to defend it. ~tdv @

The American Identity has been taken from her people, gradually, methodically, and with forethought and malice.
The American Identity has been whittled over successive generations, so as to finish it, and remake it.
In the face of unbelievable American success, indigenous foreigners have undone it, in the name of what.
There can be no other cause for the dire state of our union, except that we the people have allowed for our fundamental redefining.
For if government were representative of a people who knew their character, then government would never have done such harm.
Being a nation of, by, and for the people, logic demands that the people know what they are of, by, and for. Hence, the American Identity.
So if we are to be saved from mistaken identity, then we must return to the American Identity, else we be american in name only. Simple?
