I AM Cicero

I discovered a fascinating historical tidbit recently. America’s founders used pseudonyms during their written discourse regarding the US Constitution.  What a brilliant idea, and what better way to protect yourself from unwanted scrutiny and criticism?

I’ve written some scathing commentary about our government. In these uncertain times, I watch my country abandon the principles that made it great; I feel more unsure about our liberties as the days pass. I will continue to write what I believe, but in the interest of self-preservation.

Yes, I am afraid of our government.

I AM Cicero

“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.” ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 to 43 BCE)
