Once Upon A Time

Long, long ago and far, far away ------wait a moment; it wasn’t all that long ago nor for that matter, all that far away. Millions upon millions of American citizens like me were trained by our government to hurt people and break things in order to defend and protect the constitution of our country from its enemies both foreign and domestic. We took an oath to that effect when we went into the service of our country and I don’t remember our being absolved of that oath when we were mustered out of the service. The key word to concentrate on now would be domestic. Over and above any threats from the outside world, there are dangerous things going on within our boarders. Right now, today, as somewhat to a lesser extent in the past there are forces at work in this country diligently striving to dismantle all of the values we hold dear. Have you ever observed vultures tearing apart a dead carcass? That is a good analogy as to what those currently in power are attempting to do to our constitution. You may not agree with me but surely you will agree with what you see. We have to keep in mind though, that there are those that are so blinded in their hearts that they will not see.

What are the weapons that we have at our disposal today in order to keep the oath we took? We can vote, we can pray, we can assemble, we can demonstrate, and we can insist that our elected officials live up to the oaths that they took. We can fight with all legal means and diligence at our disposal, given to us by our constitution. Our founding documents state that God grants our rights and liberties, and that no men or governmental decree can take them away. Our constitution, as it was originally written, created our country unique in it’s sovereignty. It does not need tuning up or being overridden by international law. Our country was created to be unique and exceptional as it would be One Nation Under God.

“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country”. It’s time for the silent majority to raise our ugly heads and make our voices heard. I started this off sounding like a fairy tale because that’s what we’re being fed by those presently in power…fairy tale after fairy tale. Ever heard of bate and switch? How about misdirection? How about “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore”. What we are up against is people who harbor disdain for anyone who disagrees with their efforts to redesign our country. They are so self absorbed that they can’t believe that anyone could see things differently than they do and still be considered sane.

Keeping in mind that while we normally think in terms of liberal and conservative, democrat or republican, globalists are a different category altogether. They are so far left that the real liberals don’t recognize them. They have a plan that would interfere with their own rights as much as ours. They have a problem seeing the forest for the trees. Their emotions get in the way of reason. Perhaps I shouldn’t lump all liberals into this same category because just as there are moderate conservatives {traditionalists} such as myself, there are moderate liberals. They are not all socialists and Marxists. Those far left globalists however seem to be very adept at pulling the wool over the eyes of a great many of those who are less left. I have even heard praise recently, by these people, for the National Socialist Party and their success in overcoming an economic crisis in a European country in the nineteen thirties. They either don’t know history, or choose to ignore it, the same way they ignore the truth. Facts don’t seem to mean very much to these people, which could be the reason they don’t mind bending the truth. Does Zig Heil mean anything to anyone?

I have been told that it’s all about the money; that it’s not ideology behind what is going on but rather greed. I know that the love of money is the root of all evil, but I have a hard time believing that there are those that would destroy the greatest nation in the history of the earth simply to enrich themselves. I would not judge some one as a traitor who was being lead by their belief system, no matter how different than mine. However, one who was inspired simply by filthy lucre would engender a somewhat stronger reaction. Our forefathers paid too high a price, and our heroes since have paid too dearly for us to let our freedoms be squandered. “The essential principles of our Government... form the bright constellation which has gone before us and guided our steps through an age of revolution and reformation. The wisdom of our sages and blood of our heroes have been devoted to their attainment. They should be the creed of our political faith, the text of civic instruction, the touchstone by which to try the services of those we trust; and should we wander from them in moments of error or of alarm, let us hasten to retrace our steps and to regain the road which alone leads to peace, liberty and safety." {Thomas Jefferson}

There is a vast difference between righteous indignation and unreasoned anger. It is my opinion that those presently in power are trying to make us ‘street rat crazy’ so that we may be easily dismissed. We must think like Jesus, Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. when confronted by people like these. Acorn, the unions and other groups are out there with the express purpose of inciting us to riot. If we do – they win.

Things we should remember when inserting our selves into the public discourse.

{1} If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. {2}. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. {3} It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,…... {4} Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. {5} It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. {6} Love never fails., {7} When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. {Some quotes from 1 Corinthians 13 NIV.}

I once had life explained to me by a professor of psychology. He said all things could be explained by thinking in terms of little children arguing and fighting on the playground. Let us put away our childish ways and stand like adults against the tyranny we face. "If we ever forget that we're One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under." {Ronald Reagan} "I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man." {Thomas Jefferson}

If I remember right, Readers Digest used to be written on a sixth grade level so that most people could cope with reading it. The congressional bills are written in such legalese and mumbo jumbo that they are almost impossible to understand. Think there might be a reason for this? If we can’t get those whom we pay to know what is in the bills to read them, where do we go from here? How dare they vote on something they haven’t read and therefore don’t know what it contains. Chimpanzees can do that and they are a lot cheaper to maintain. “In a hierarchy, every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence. Therefore: 1. In time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out its duties. 2. Work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence.”

{The Peter Principle} Isn’t number one what we have in congress today?

“If you, Mr. President, Congressmen and Senators, knuckle under on this and refuse to do something meaningful it means that you care nothing for the kind of country your children and grand-children will inherit. But I guess that doesn't matter as long as you get re-elected.
Shame on you.

One of the big problems in America today is that if you have the nerve to say anything derogatory about any group of people {except Christians} you are going to be screamed at by the media and called a racist, a bigot and anything else they can think of to call you.

Well I've been pounded by the media before and I'm still rockin' and rollin' and when it comes to speaking the truth I fear not. And the truth is that the gutless, gonad less, milksop politicians are just about to sell out the United States of America because they don't have the intestinal fortitude to stand up to face reality.” {Charlie Daniels}

"To secure these [inalienable] rights [to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness], governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed... Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness." {Thomas Jefferson}

Remember that from the heart the mouth speaks. We must keep our hearts in the love mode and our fists open. The same God that created you created the ones that are responsible for what is happening today. A civil discourse on our part will let the Lord work on their hearts. At the same time, they should know we are coming. You that would overturn our nation, we are coming for you.

“In God We Trust" is our national motto. This is not some right wing, Christian, afterthought. We declare this because Christians founded this nation, on Judeo Christian principles and this is clearly documented. “The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time.” {Thomas Jefferson}
