A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
This is a sad time in world history. The “Shining City on a Hill,” so often referred to by Ronald Reagan, has fallen.
The great American Spirit has been broken by a socialist government, which feeds on power and has neither love nor concern for its people. Just power, raw political power, and they’ll do whatever is necessary to maintain their grasp on that power.
Is this the way the greatest nation ever to exist in the history of the planet goes out… on bended knee, with heads bowed, and necks bared to the blade of a government grown fat and ugly on raw power? Is this it?
Or… do we rise up, in righteous anger, and take our government back from those whose thirst for power has taken the USA to the brink of extinction as a nation?
The people of America must make a decision before November of 2010. Do we allow those we entrusted with our safety, and security, to continue to tear the country apart, or do we clean the house at the polls? Do we vote to send those incumbent politicians back to Washington… after what they have done to this country, or, do we run our own candidates, candidates sworn to take this country back to is roots in the Constitution, candidates sworn to ensure the domestic tranquility and security of this nation? Yes, all this is extremely important, but we are going to desperately need candidates who will return the US to its status as a democratic republic.
The socialist in charge if the US government are working feverishly to impose socialized medicine on all Americans regardless of whether we want it or not. They intend to force us to purchase health insurance although; the constitution invests no such power in the Congress. Many Americans maintain that healthcare is not a concern of the Federal government. It is ONLY the concern of the private citizen. It is up to each individual American to decide for himself, or herself, if they wish to invest in health insurance. But the federal government, in true socialist style, is determined to force all Americans to purchase it.
True Americans do not rely on the government. Americans who wish to better themselves, to amount to something, must rely upon themselves, not the federal government. Here is what President Theodore Roosevelt had to say about that: “If an American is to amount to anything he must rely upon himself, and not upon the State; he must take pride in his own work, instead of sitting idle to envy the luck of others. He must face life with resolute courage, win victory if he can, and accept defeat if he must, without seeking to place on his fellow man a responsibility which is not theirs." Theodore Roosevelt - Review of Reviews, January 1897
I don’t know about you, but I want my country back! I want that America which would look anybody, any nation, any political philosophy, such as socialism, in the eye and say: “If you want my country, then, by God, you’ll have to fight me to the death for it!”
Something must be done. The federal government has made it clear they intend to foist socialism on the people of America. We have a chance to stop them a year from now at the ballot box. One year is not a long time in a fight for the life of a country. We must begin now.
Ronald Reagan said: "You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done". Ronald Reagan
Defense of a nation by the people of that nation is "Self Defense." Self-defense is a God given right. Many Americans took oaths, upon entering the US military, to defend America from all enemies foreign and domestic. Many are now remembering their oaths and asking themselves if there is an expiration date on the oath they took. It is a question well worth pondering.
If we want to save what is left of the republic, we must begin now and be ready in November 2010. We cannot afford to lose the next round at the ballot box. Even if we win, many decades of hard work will await us as we attempt to heal the nation from the damage done it by the brief experiment with socialism lead by the current administration.
The nation cries out for rescue. We must not turn our backs a second time. She will not survive.
