“Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grand-children are once more slaves.” ~D. H. Lawrence
I am finding it increasingly difficult to be civil when it comes to the daily bilge that emanates from Washington, especially from the White House. I am sick and tired of the cretin in the White House and the crooks, cronies, and communists that orbit around him. I am sick of their assault on everything we value.
Obama promised hope and change and to fundamentally transform America. Well, how’s that working out for you Mr. or Ms. Average American? Unless you are one of Obama’s chosen ones, or you have been hiding under a rock for three years, you know full well it is not working at all. If Ronald Reagan would ask today whether we are better off now than we were four years ago, I am certain the answer would be a resounding “Hell no!”
Obama, and the far left policies he represents, is killing America. If you have the audacity to think and act like an individual with rights granted by God, you are the enemy of the left. If you think you are entitled to live, work, and create as you choose in our society, think again, for to believe this way is heresy to the left. The evidence abounds and even the lame street media cannot spin it away.
The philosophy, policies, and practices of the left are bankrupt, immoral, and anti-human. Anyone who believes in the fantasy of a perfect society believes, but will never admit, that to even come close to utopia, human beings, and their individuality, must be crushed into submission by a person or group which has assumed absolute power over every minutiae of life — and death.
Does this sound familiar?
When selecting the people who represent us, the essence of a constitutional republic, we must fight against the philosophy of statism. We are the sovereigns in America. The government serves us, not itself. “…governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” not the government will condescend to grant you some rights that don’t interfere with their march to tyranny.
The evil of statism threatens our lives, our liberty, and our future. Statism is not confined to the Democratic Party. Its tentacles have crept into the Republican Party as well, corrupting the electoral process.
Everyone is getting tired of politics, debates, and the endless chatter of the vacuous talking heads. However, we must stay interested, and we must do our due diligence and vet each candidate, from the local school board to the president. Check each candidate’s voting record. Check their websites. Discover what they truly believe.
We can no longer afford the luxury of complacency: we must stay informed and involved.
We must do all we can to inform ourselves, for we cannot depend on the lame, left-dominated mainstream media outlets do tell us the truth.
However, doing the heavy lifting ourselves is the essence of being an American. We are a nation of independent, resourceful people who work hard and lead, and influence others by our own example. And that scares the crap out of the left because they fear the spirit of the individual and its infinite power of creativity and resilience.
We must work hard and work smart. They have worked hard to dumb us down and make us dependent upon them. We must resist through the power of knowledge and truth. We must take the high ground, morally and intellectually, and expose them for the frauds and charlatans they are.
The reign of terror of the leviathan state must stop here on November 6. The choice is simple and yours to make: liberty or tyranny, freedom or slavery.
“A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.” ~Edward Abbey
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have… a right, an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean the characters and conduct of their rulers.” ~John Adams
