What’s the Price of Freedom?

Price has the connotation of dollars and cents, but it’s much more than that.  Blood is the price of freedom often enough, and there is another price that is even more demanding.  When we sacrifice our blood, it is generally a one time and brief event.

On the other hand, the saying that “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”, has a very challenging implication.  It means every waking moment that you are obligated, if you want to remain free, to be mindful and alert to all of the machinations of evil people in high places, and generally people who are behind the scenes avoiding being observed.

These are the people who actually run the world, and they have their “front men” so to speak.  The “front men” are none other than politicians, bureaucrats and corporate stooges – often times the Chairman of the Board.  This list of people represents the expendables, if need be, in order to conceal those who operate from the shadows.

It may have been determined that Hillary was “expendable” when the sentiments of the public became too overpowering.  That leaves us with Trump as President.  President Trump did not become a billionaire by being anti-establishment.  Therefore, his close ties to the establishment may make him a “front man”, or it may make him a threat to them.

The proof will be in the pudding so to speak, and we need to be vigilant as to the distinction between what a politician says, and what he does can vary.  Holding Trump’s feet close to the fire immediately is going to be an absolutely critical part of seeing fruit from this anti-establishment rebellion.
