America’s Crossing of the Rubicon.
A few months ago, weeks before the election in November of 2008, I scribbled the following words:
The cost? Freedom is the price we will be compelled to pay for the “security” the current socialist regime in America is demanding.
Even today we see the government swallowing up great gobs of America’s business community. Our naïve, youthful, geographic either was not taught, or did not learn, that “business is the business of America.”
The business community is an invaluable part of the foundation of this country. Business provides the goods and services needed to trade with our fellowman on this planet. Business provides the jobs Americans need to provide for their families and to keep the capital (the money) roiling through our national economy. Business makes America strong. Profits keep business healthy. When business is healthy… America is healthy. Freedom is necessary, is, in fact, required for business to operate in a healthy and profitable atmosphere.
There can be no compromise. America CAN be healed, BUT… the damage Obama and his socialist cohorts are doing to this country, to this government, to our business community, and to the American people, will leave lasting scars… scars that will never completely heal.
Yes, we are in dangerous times… extremely dangerous. As each day passes the façade of Obama and his socialist allies in the Congress, and the cabinet, slips a little. More and more Americans are coming to understand the immensity of the mistake America made last November. It is becoming clear that our current government is taking America down a path the founders of this country never intended America to take.
The Rubicon HAS been crossed. The bridges are not yet burned, however, and Americans can re-cross to the open arms of freedom. But, if, and (God willing) WHEN we do, we will have to live with the damage done to our constitution. Repairs will be required to that old “God inspired document” to insure that what is happening to our beloved America today can never happen again. It must be made a part of the law of this land that a democratic representative republic is the only form of government allowable… ever… in America.
