Clarence Thomas Makes DIRE Prediction – “They’re Going To…”
(RightWing.org) – In 1776, the Founding Fathers of America put their lives, reputations, and wealth on the line to create a new government unlike ever seen before. The men who fought for America did so because they believed the loss of liberty was worse than death. Yet, today, few Americans even consider what liberty is, let alone the sacrifices of those in the past who created and preserved it.
On Sunday, June 26, Business Insider offered a glimpse of a new book titled “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words.” The conservative Supreme Court (SCOTUS) justice didn’t just offer a look into how he understands the Constitution. Instead, he issues a dire warning to Americans and expresses deep concerns about the future of our country.
Justice Thomas Issues Warning to America
From November 2017 to March 2018, Justice Thomas met with authors Michael Pack and Mark Paoletta for over 30 hours. Thomas told the authors that Americans today are more interested in their iPhones than in the US Constitution. He stated that the lost interest in America’s founding legal document was his disappointment.
At the root of the dilemma, the long-time SCOTUS justice said citizens are more about what they want than what is right as a country. That was also a deep-seated warning by the Founding Fathers for the following generations.
Still, Thomas said the lack of awareness about the Constitution, its role in American life, and its protections of liberty were not a burden to the court’s work. Instead, he noted that it is a burden on Americans. The justice pointed out that the Supreme Court is only one part of the equation in protecting Constitutional liberties.
Thomas stated that America belongs to the people. It’s their liberty at risk and their obligation to know what their liberties are in the Constitution. He noted that citizens are allowing the government to rule them and insinuated that people appear to be inviting the government to overstep its boundaries.
Founding Fathers Warned Future Generations To Not Forget Liberty
In 1776, Thomas Jefferson defined liberty in the Declaration of Independence. He noted that law created and enforced by governments is often a tool of tyrants to violate the rights of an individual. Today, liberty is defined as living free from oppressive restrictions imposed by the government to control the way one lives, behaves, or politically believes.
Thomas Jefferson once wrote, “The policy of American government is to leave its citizens free, neither restraining them nor aiding them in their pursuits.” He also gave his directive for saving liberty saying, “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.”
Thomas Paine wrote, “It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government,” and George Washington swore that he would never abandon the Constitution.
Can most Americans say the same today?
