Fellow Americans, Fellow Patriots:
To paraphrase the words of President Lincoln and our own Declaration of Independence: “Two hundred and thirty-four years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition 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.
” Once again, we are engaged in a great new conflict, testing whether our nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.
Fellow Patriots, our Republic, our Constitution, our freedoms, and our American way of life, purchased with the blood and treasure of our forebears, are today in grave danger from enemies both within and without.
We are here today to uphold our Honor and to do our duty to God and Country, to protect our Republic and Our Constitution from the schemes and depredations of tyrants. We are here today to sound the alarm, to awaken our fellow citizens and to make our voices heard, to put those who would enslave us on notice that we’re mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore!
The danger to our Republic, our Constitution, our liberties and our lives is very real:
We have a Marxist President with a radical agenda foreign to our heritage and with his finger on the nuclear trigger. His paternity and citizenship is suspect. He takes great pains to hide his background from us. He was educated by Muslims, Communists, and at Harvard. He emerged into the public eye from the cesspool of Chicago politics. As a “community organizer”, he got poor folks on the dole and squandered public funds in a failed attempt to subvert public schools to an ideological agenda. He attended a Chicago Church whose hate-America Pastor is a foul-mouthed servant of Satan. He is close friends with known terrorists. He admires and bows before oil potentates and tin-pot dictators. He treats America’s traditional allies with contempt. He hates Jews, Israel, America, and Whitey. His health care plan is not about health care but a pretext for tyranny. He lies so easily and so often it is troubling. Based on his past & current associations, Barack Obama would never even qualify for a DOD Security Clearance; now he is Commander in Chief and fecklessly taking steps to disarm us in the sight of our enemies. Does that make you feel safe at night? Fellow Patriots, Barack Obama is a danger to your Life, Liberty, and Property and is a disgrace to America! Barack Obama must go!
We have a spineless and venal Congress & Senate whose Democrat majority is hell-bent on imposing a Socialist Utopia and the Chicago Way across America through the deliberate impoverishment of its citizens. We have witnessed the calculated & deliberate mismanagement of our public & private finances and the plundering of our wealth through the subprime mortgage debacle, out-of control deficit spending, entitlement Ponzi schemes, backroom deals and payoffs to quiet the qualms and grease the palms of boot-licking politicos whose votes are for sale. It doesn’t take an accountant to figure out that what’s coming down the pike is a tsunami of crushing taxes and debasement of our currency to feed the maw of a Government run amuck. Our so-called public servants are screwing us out of the rightful fruits of our labor and robbing our children & grandchildren of their future through their profligate ways. Our elected dirt-bags are so used to using their public office for private gain, they and their media lapdogs no longer have even a shred of honor or shame left – the abnormal has become normal. Now we vividly know the truth of the saying that “No man’s life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session!” Fellow Patriots, we need to vote ‘em all out!
We have a tax system that is being used to enslave us. One of the big reasons we are here today is that our tax system is an absolute joke! A couple-thousand page monstrosity that makes criminals out of everyone. When even the IRS Commissioner needs help figuring out his taxes, you know there's something wrong! Our tax system "is inefficient, distorts behavior, stifles economic growth, and is still not enough to satisfy the kleptocrats in DC. And now they’re talking about a VAT tax - talk about killing the goose that’s laying the golden eggs! Instead of raising revenue for the essential costs of Government, our so-called “progressive” tax system is used for social engineering – code words for ”income redistribution” – primarily to buy votes. What we have now is a system where a little less than half the people in the country, presumably “the poor and illegal aliens” are freeloaders that pay little or no tax at all and with the top 2% paying 40% of the taxes. The freeloaders presumably will vote to continue receiving their freebies, while the favored few use their attorneys and bean counters to avoid paying taxes or get special treatment in exchange for campaign cash. When our profligate politicos feel the itch for more of our money they always talk about “soaking the rich”. The bad news is that “the rich” are small and medium-sized businesspeople who have kept the show going and now there are damn few left to soak. What does that tell you about whose pocket is going to get picked next? Right – the middle class, meaning you & me. They got the gold mine, we got the shaft! How is that fair? As if all that isn’t enough, there’s an army of IRS agents, a real American Gestapo, coming soon to a neighborhood near you to enforce our Nanny-state government’s vision of a Worker’s Paradise by making you buy their crummy health insurance. Nurse Ratched would be so proud! Fellow Patriots, what will you do when they come for you? Are you going to bend over without a whimper and take it up the ass? I don’t know about you, but I’m sure as hell not!
We see the appointment of an activist airhead Supreme Court Justice the “wise Latina woman”, with a political agenda who believes our Constitution is a “Living Document” that she can interpret any way she damn well pleases. Fellow Patriots, are we a nation of laws or of men? Our Founders chose their words carefully with a firm reliance on Divine Providence and our Constitution means exactly what it says. What more do you need to see or hear before concluding that our liberties are in grave danger?
Here’s a few things we can expect to happen down the road if government continues running amuck:
Loss of freedom. Like the car you drive? You’ll only be able to buy a Green Go-Cart from Government Motors, or maybe a bike. Like to watch TV and go to the movies? You’ll only be able to watch PC propaganda. Got kids? They will be indoctrinated and drink the Kool-aid at school and told to rat you out. Think your kid needs a spanking? Better think twice – you’ll go to jail if you do. Like your privacy? Big Brother is watching you 24/7. Own a gun to protect yourself and your loved ones? Off to jail with you! Go to Church on Sunday? Sorry, we'll have to shut it down - discrimination you know. I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture.
Loss of wealth through excessive taxation and debasement of our currency resulting in rampant inflation. How many of us lost a big chunk of our life’s savings in the recent subprime mortgage meltdown? How many lost a big chunk of our home equity? How many have lost jobs? If the same clowns in DC are still there next year, your paper wealth could be worthless and you’ll be a pauper. We can’t let this happen. If these clowns in DC were sent packing, the stock market would go vertical in a second.
Loss of order. When people give up hope of ever making a decent living, it’s back to the Law of the Jungle. Need I remind anyone of Margaret Thatcher’s somber words of warning: “The veneer of civilization is very thin.”
Loss of life. We know that the Obamacare death panels will “pull the plug on Granny”. Next thing you know, Granny and Gramps will be asked - or told - to snuff themselves “for the greater good”. After that, they will come after the disabled, the handicapped, and other “useless eaters”.
What do we do? Walter Williams says, “Americans who wish to live free have several options. We can submit to those who have constitutional contempt and want to run our lives. We can resist, fight and risk bloodshed and death in an attempt to force America's tyrants to respect our liberties. We can seek a peaceful resolution of our irreconcilable differences by separating.” Those are the choices.
You may be asking yourself: “What can I do? I’m only one person.”
Take a Stand for Liberty. Decide! Decide now, not later! Get involved - today; Tomorrow may be too late. Talk it up - today. Give all you can when you can to those who can - now.
Know and assert your rights - Because our schools are so dumbed-down, many folks don’t even know the full extent of our Founders gift to us. Read the Declaration of Independence. Know your Constititution. Study the Federalist Papers. Demand our rights be respected and upheld. We need to hold our elected representatives accountable. We need to have a microscope up their ass at all times! The internet makes it far harder for tyrants to control the news and far easier to organize and make our voices heard. Use every tool and stretch every nerve in the defense of Liberty!
Make absolutely sure you vote. This November could be the most critical Election in our lifetime. It could well determine whether we and our children and grandchildren live free or die in a Socialist Paradise.
Lastly, things could get rough. Our Founders pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. Benjamin Franklin said, "We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately" Do we as Americans have it in us still to defend our liberties, to live free or die, or have we gone soft? What will you do when they come for you? Are you going to go quietly or are you going to fight? Only the man in the mirror can answer that question for you.
Fellow Patriots, our friend Jay Henderson said in Gathering Storms, “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.”
I’m betting that this is still the land of the free and the home of the brave!
Fellow Patriots: Let’s play ball!
