Daily Prompt: Last Words

You have the chance to write one last post on your blog before you stop blogging forever. Write it.

Time is short. I only pray that I have enough time to share all that needs to be shared with you before they arrive. I pray that I will have enough time to click “Publish”.

We knew this day was coming, and many tried to warn us, but like foolish children with their fingers stuck in their ears, we didn’t want to hear the warnings. We belittled their wise counsel, because we didn’t want to acknowledge the very real threat to our society and our freedom. Who knew that it could really happen here in the United States of America? Who could have realized that little by little, one by one, our basic rights would be stripped away from us, until none were left?

The new laws and the new policies seemed so good to us at first. Laws against hate crimes – who could have known that that one little law would rip away our freedom of speech? Who could have known that laws affording us the right to choose would result in the widespread euthanizing of the elderly, who tried to warn us, reminding us of the Holocaust?

But already, the proselytizing had begun. The schools were teaching children that the Holocaust was just a figment of the imaginations of the ignorant. They were teaching the youth that they had nothing to gain from the elderly, who were both feeble minded and physically frail. The world would be better off without them, and truly, the elderly would be grateful if they were put out of their misery. When it began, none of us believed that anyone would actually take this foolishness seriously, much less act on it. We were wrong.

The elderly population began to die off rapidly, and then the “suicides” and “mercy killings” began to spread to the physically and mentally handicapped. After all, they reasoned, no one would want to live with a disability, and with the money the government would save, they could provide better health programs for the younger population.

Sure, there were some who cried out against it at first, but then, those who were the most outspoken began to die mysteriously in “accidents.” And still, as the reality of the situation was beginning to register with some of  us, we refused to believe that this could really be happening. It was just like a bad movie or a nightmare. Mankind is basically good, right?

Surely people are going to wake up and realize that this is wrong and it must cease! But it didn’t. Children began to turn on their parents, reporting them for “hate” crimes and treason against the government.

Phone calls were intercepted, and the “news” was merely propaganda now. Those who did report the truth on the internet were now  underground, in fear of their lives, and with good reason. Just like in old western times, posters, and photos were posted on television, in post offices and on the internet, offering huge rewards for the capture of these “insurrectionists”. They were wanted dead or alive.

Civil war spread throughout the nation, as foreign terrorists joined in the fray. In the government’s effort to stop the people from mutiny, they created a national religion, which embodied “the best” of all religions, while outlawing Judaism and Christianity altogether.

The right to bear arms was terminated also, with the passing of the gun control act, but fortunately, many had seen this coming, and had already taken their arms and their computers underground. There are just a few of us spread throughout the country, trying to report the truth without being discovered. Someone has to speak out against the atrocities that are being committed in the name of justice.

I fear that my time is short. I’m almost certain my location has been pinpointed, and that in just a few short minutes, my life and my computer will be taken. That’s why I must hurry.

Listen! Time is short. This is not the way it should be. Our country was founded on freedom and democracy. We were a republic. We were united in one cause – freedom and justice for all.

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness…”

My friends, these are the words of our country’s Declaration of Independence, and it has become necessary for us to dissolve our ties with the current government and pursue our rights to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We must now stand up and tell our government in the words of Patrick Henry, one of our founding forefathers, Give me Liberty, or give me death!

I hear their footsteps outside my door – I must
