How many of us today can truly imagine the struggles, the hardships, and the living conditions of those first Americans in their fight for Independence against what was (at the time 237 years ago) the most formidably powerful military force in the world represented in the standing army of Great Britain? The struggles and hardships not withstanding, the living conditions alone (by today’s demanding standards), would be regarded as no less than squalid and unimaginable! Provisions and resources were scarce, the ravages of disease bountiful, and consequential dissent among the ranks of this homogeneous collection of militia citizen-soldiers flourished as a result. Yet under the guidance and resolute leadership of General George Washington, against and despite the disparity of overwhelming odds, America’s Continental Army persevered and achieved victory towards securing Independence from the oppressive Monarchy of Great Britain’s King George the third!
Those whom we now look back to as our Founding Fathers, crafted a subsequent form of Constitutional Government among the existing colonies of their time, unprecedented and unequaled in the annals of human history! A system of Government designed to obstruct and prevent any recurrence of the very sort of tyranny from which they had contested and won their liberation. When you consider the historical narrative of our Nations struggle to achieve Independence, the daily struggles, hardships, and poor living conditions, coupled by the overwhelming odds represented in Britain’s superior military faced by General Washington and his men (for any discerning person with eyes to see), you can’t help but sense the hand of God’s divine providence extending His benevolent grace and favor in these affairs of mankind, guiding them towards their manifest destiny! That’s just my opinion anyway. I’m sure there’s no shortage of divergent views out there held by those of a more contemporary Progressive bent, eager to dispute my opinion with their standard tripe of secular Deconstructionists rhetoric expressed in a barrage of ridicule and mockery. And that’s ok! That’s the distinguishing characteristic which separates me from those who bring such a deficit of character and deficiency of intelligence to the conversation. Where my view is that they have a Right to their beliefs and opinions, theirs on the other hand is that I only have the Right to believe what they do. See the difference?
By my own admission, I concede that I am not a perfect Christian by any stretch of the imagination (but the imperfection of human nature does not negate or preclude a belief in God or His Son, Jesus Christ!). Many of my previous commentaries are scattered with the Molotov cocktails of profanity fueled by plain anger! Haven’t you ever found yourself being that upset tho’? Especially throughout these last 4 years? Those moments when reason and civil discourse go up in smoke in the heat of incensed sensibilities that refuse to take anymore of being subjected to this daily onslaught by the ignorant stupidity of political correctness?!? And while anger is no excuse, I naturally get pissed off at this state of our Nation today! At those things which seem so obvious by their moral and common sense interpretation and implications to me and millions of other American’s, which so many of these elected Representatives of ours seem inclined to turn a willfully blind eye towards!It’s both discouraging and infuriating when you consider the level of dignity, integrity, wisdom, and honor intrinsic and essential to those who founded our Nation, then look at this pathetic lot of corrupt cowards we have running us into the ground today! It’s symbolic actually to this engineered decline we’ve allowed to transpire right in front of our eyes, so in that respect, there’s no shortage of blame to pass around for what we’re experiencing now. We are ALL responsible for this decline! As much by any apathetic complacency on the part of many as by the premeditated complicity of many others! But it’s still more than that as it states in Ephesians 6:12:
12) “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places!”
Which now brings me to the current subject of debate taking our Nation by storm, centering again around the topic of gun control following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown, Connecticut. Just the fact however that we have those people who take the position of blaming an inanimate object lacking conscious awareness, rather than the malevolent nature and murderous intent of a seriously warped and defective human being, what expectations can seriously be had for any productive dialogue under such prevailing circumstances?!? I find the cherry picked indignation of those biased pundits in our mainstream media hypocritical too. Most notably when you consider their mutual silence when it comes to Chicago’s astronomical homicide rate for 2012 topping 500! Many are aware that Chicago has some of the most severely restrictive gun laws of any major metropolitan city in the United States (for all the good those do obviously), but apparently criminal gang members there haven’t been kept apprised of this fact.
But millions of American’s today sense there’s more involved in the Sandy Hook tragedy than a flash-fire reaction to an unspeakable horror committed by a deranged sub-human piece of filth. It was established awhile back courtesy of Obama’s former Chief of Staff and now Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, elaborating their political philosophy of, “Never wanting a serious crisis to go to waste”. Ironic the mine field of “serious crises” littering the political landscape of Obama’s first term in Office and how they all seem to conveniently coincide with specific political views and prejudices held by Obama. Now we have Obama (Mr. Transparency himself, whose own Department of Justice provided thousands of high powered firearms to Mexican drug cartels connected to the murders of a Border Patrol and ICE Agent, as well as HUNDREDS of Mexican civilians), lecturing the American people on the need for more restrictive bans on assault weapons and his promised swift reaction to answering the cries of the people demanding a response. By the way, does anyone else find it somewhat disturbing how all of these recent ‘polls’ are cropping up in the news of late, indicating the majority of the American peoples ‘supposed’ approval and support of Obama’s agenda to raise taxes and enact more stringent gun control policies?!?
I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I do believe there are those opportunists in politics who are not above exploiting a National tragedy like Sandy Hook, descending on it like Turkey Buzzard’s on road kill, for the explicit purpose of advancing a political agenda! As I’m sure we’ve all heard over and over, this debate ultimately is not about “gun control”, but about people control! When you get down to the brass tacks, the Right of the people to keep and bear arms shall NOT be infringed! And it is in line with this belief that I am certain America does NOT have a friend in Barrack Hussein Obama, or ANY of those Appointees And Czars whom he has infiltrated and scattered throughout practically every level of our Government! Especially those with direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood! Anyone who has been paying attention to details for these past several years, has the intuitive gut level feeling that there is something NOT right when it comes to Obama! His unquestionable lack of possessing necessary Executive qualifications, his complete absence of leadership skills, his radical political associations in Chicago consisting of convicted felons and domestic terrorists not withstanding, this man (with his anti-colonialist beliefs and Stalinesque ideology) has committed gross dereliction of duty and violation to his sworn Oath to support and defend the Constitution time and again as far as I’m concerned! And that his political aspirations have since come to fruition at the expense of American lives on more than one occasion (most recently with the September 11th, 2012 terrorist attack on our American Embassy in Libya and the 4 American’s subsequently murdered there as a result, without ANY aid even attempted by this President and his Administration, as they later scrambled in an effort to cover-up their dereliction!) I find unconscionable! Remember (those of you old enough to remember anyway), if Nixon had not resigned from Office over the Watergate scandal, he would have been Impeached for the crime of the ‘cover-up’, not the crime of the break-in itself!
But what we’re all witnessing today is the cumulative results of advanced stage political correctness! Having swept through our culture like a contagion, borne along by those who have more in common with flesh eating bacteria than they do the disingenuously altruistic ideology they purport to have! So many wonder why our Nation has descended into this deteriorated state of decline, when all you have to do is understand and follow the trail of resulting consequences by our having allowed the seditious ambitions of these insurrectionists free reign to exert the level of degenerative influence they have over our society for decades. They have no reverence for our Constitution beyond exploiting it to surreptitiously advance their own subversive agenda! Their singular objective is no less than the total subjugation of our Country to the destructive totalitarian whims of their lunatics post-modernistic, deconstructionists, Progressive ideology! I refer to them all in simple language for what they are: Traitors!
“Give me Liberty, or give me Death!”, was a sentiment echoed in a speech delivered by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775, at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia. These were not words of mere political contrivance or convenience! They were the embodiment of a deep abiding conviction in the belief of freedom and liberty! So many of our younger generations in our Country today have been conditioned to become ignorant, soft, and complacent to their own engineered descent. They reason as long as they can cling to the superficiality of creature comforts and meaningless materialistic indulgences they don’t have to care! They’re more content and prideful in their willful ignorance than they are of having any ambition to become informed and knowledgeable. How do we survive as a Nation with so many lost souls wandering aimless through life like that??
It is recounted of Benjamin Franklin, at the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, being questioned as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation, “Well, Doctor, what have we got — a Republic or a Monarchy?”, and his reply being, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”
So are we going to keep our Republic, America?? Or are we, instead, going to sit back in apathy and allow the malicious depredations of anarchists to usurp and destroy everything cherished about our shared history and collective heritage?!? To wipe out 237 years of everything that has made the United States of America the singular most exceptional and greatest free Nation in the history of mankind?? Speaking for myself, that outcome is totally unacceptable and intolerable! Far better to fight and live free or die, than ever yield to the oppressive tyranny of fascist usurpers! So ask yourself, what would you do and towards what lengths would you go to protect your family, your home, and your Country from those seeking to take it all away??
