237 Years

237 years ago, some brave men on the east coast pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to stand up for liberty and spit in the face of tyranny. They banded together and battled the world’s most formidable army, the brutal elements and the doubt of those who blindly held steadfast in their support of the crown. They persevered and won and created the greatest experiment in self-governance the world has ever seen.

A little more than two centuries later, that experiment is going awry.

The rule of law doesn’t apply to this regime. Reconciliation, lying under oath, running guns, ignoring Congressional subpoena’s, failing to enforce citations for Contempt of Congress and executive fiat is the modus operandi in Washington these days. It’s no longer the Chicago Way. Sadly, it’s now the American Way.

If you choose to stand idly by while you watch the Obamacare ‘Reconciliation’, the Fast & Furious Obfuscation, the Benghazi Fiasco, the IRS Political Assassinations, the NSA, FBI, Secret Service et al Intimidation of the heretofore ‘Free’ Press, the Muslim Brotherhood / Arab Spring Embracement, the Newtown Manipulation and God knows what other scandals that would be covered 24 x 7 ad infinitum if George Bush were in office – and all of it happening right before your eyes…

Ask yourself, “What would Thomas Paine do?”

All the while our national debt has more than doubled, the number of US government dependents has grown by 50%, unemployment and inflation figures are blatantly manipulated, Democrats AND Republicans are collectively pushing for the amnesty of the supposedly 11 MILLION people our elected leaders allowed to enter our country illegally – all at the expense of the officially reported 7.6% of unemployed LEGAL American workers…

crossing-the-delewareThe outright arrogance of our current day king is reminiscent of that of the English king 237 years ago.  The crown has childishly reacted to sequestration by shutting down the people’s house all while spending about a bajillion of our tax dollars vacationing and peddling their progressive wares.

The 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 10th Amendments? Please! What do they have to do with anything? Where do they fit in today’s experiement???

Read YOUR Declaration of Independence tomorrow. Read YOUR Constitution.

Some brave men pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor 237 years ago to allow you to do so.

And if you’ve gotten this far, I encourage you to read the following. It’s so simple yet so logical, it hurts.

Food For Thought
By Junius P. Long

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally…
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion…
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote who runs the government…
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt…
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat…
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched…
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more…
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher’s “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable…
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing and free cell phones…
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to incentivize NOT working with 99 weeks of unemployment checks and no requirement to prove they applied but can’t find work…
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government…
You might live in a country run by idiots.
