On Saturday our nation celebrates its 233rd birthday. This year America looks a lot less like the free country that our founding forefathers imagined, but rather like countries ran down from the old and tired ideas of socialism and faith in big brother. This year on the Fourth of July people will unite together on the capitol steps at 6 pm in Baton Rouge to redeclare their Independence, not dependence on government.
I suppose if Jefferson were to pen the list of offenses committed by King Obama it would include the line.
“He hath erected a multitude of offices and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance”, though I would think he’d replace the word officers with the word czars. Among new offenses he’d list would be these:
“He hath bankrupted our nation, promising jobs and delivering higher unemployment”
“He hath insulted our soldiers, making a mockery of their work by removing them from the field and allowing the tyrant next door to mutilate it’s uprising.”
“He hath done nothing in defense of our nation and dismisses the finest weapons as antiquated.”
“He hath been an enemy of liberty, giving audience to tyrants and child molesters and insulted heads of nations that favor democracy.”
“He hath declared war on the nation of Honduras which never offended him, threatening their sovereignty and deciding their leader for them.”
“He hath stolen the property of shareholders, driving down the value a stock before he confiscated and divided the business among his friends.”
“He hath betrayed the people of our country, encouraging hatred among countrymen by demonizing them while he makes friends with the enemies of our nation.”
“He hath insulted our intelligence, declaring our government bankrupt and then promising free health care for all.”
I suppose Jefferson could write many more offenses as Obama has made so many that it’s virtually impossible to keep track of, and he’s been in office for less than 6 months? It seems to me that the Democrat party ought to have enough sense to wake up and realize that Obama’s putting the entire future of their party at risk, that is, if the Democrat party has enough courage to trust the American people to do the right thing. My guess is, as Obama leads the Democrat party to the edge of the cliff, they’ll be more than happy to step across that ledge and take the fall. As a conservative I won’t shed a tear, but as their fellow American, I’m obligated to warn them.
But you? You are obligated to each gun owner in America that protects your right to free speech, to exercise your freedom of speech. You owe it to the soldiers who died so that you, a stranger, can enjoy Liberty. You owe it to your employers who provides work for you day after day, so that you may put food on the table for your family. You owe it to your loved ones, your spouse, your children so they will enjoy the same opportunities and liberties that you did. You owe it to posterity, for you do not have the right to surrender freedom on its behalf. Your countrymen need you, Uncle Sam needs you, your children need you. Liberty beckons you to stand up. What will you choose?
