This July 4th, this country is in danger of having the dream the founding fathers saw for this land taken away. We are under assault by people and organizations that profess their love of this country, yet do everything in their power to undermine it.
We have a president that appoints “tsars” to positions in which they are only answerable to him. We have no idea exactly what their duties are or what they are earning. Everything about them is more secretive than a CIA program. If you look at Soviet history, this is comparable to how Stalin consolidated his power. They were called “apparatchiki” and were scattered throughout the agriculture, manufacturing and other parts of government to oversee and push through Stalin’s agenda. Sound familiar?
He is pushing through his agenda using executive orders. His latest was signing into law parts of the Dream Act, dictating that federal immigration officials do not have to deport illegal aliens if they are enrolled in any type of education program; or if their family members have volunteered for U.S. military service, or even if they are pregnant or nursing. This happened on a Friday afternoon when press coverage is minimal. This was completely ignored by the MSM and oddly, the GOP candidates for President.
Throughout his presidency, Obama has consistently apologized to every Communist or Third World cesspool for America being…well, being America. No more “shining city on the hill” as Ronald Reagan said, and everything that makes us number one in the world. .
He has done away with the one thing that screams America! and the adjectives that people used to describe us: innovative, unafraid, brash, bold, and inquisitive. That is the Shuttle program . Yes, as he moves to bring us down to the level of other countries, he is taking away programs and ideals that make us great. Weakening the space program is his way of making us feel as if we aren’t as good as we used to be; that we don’t deserve to be number one in the world.
When he stated during his campaign that he wanted to “transform” America, it wasn’t an homage to the founding fathers’ ideals. No, he wanted to transform it from what it is: a free republic with individual rights to a statist government that runs every aspect of a person’s life; from birth to death. Those words were not mispoken and now his actions back them up.
However, many Americans have now realized what is at stake. People who have never been involved in politics are coming out and saying enough is enough. As with our ancestors during our War of Independence, people who thought they would do no more than just be good citizens and quietly live their lives are finally coming out of the stupor. They are taking an active part in keeping an eye on the legislators in Congress and holding them to the promises they gave during election time..
But this July 4th, it is just not the celebration of our 235th year of existence, but a new beginning. We can wave the flag, attend parades and watch fireworks on that day, but what really matters is what we do after today. Don’t put away the flag or what it stands for just to be dusted off for each national holiday.
This time, it’s necessary that we take those beliefs, hold them up to the light and make sure that they prevail in this country. Those beliefs of individual freedom, our Bill of Rights and the Constitution will hold up under the harsh glare and attacks by the lefties, Communists and Marxists that want to transform this country.
The overwhelming truth of their beliefs is that they are empty. No amount of window dressing, promises and putting lipstick on a pig won’t make them any more palatable to people who have now recognized that this government is given the rights by the people, not the other way around.
Our acknowledgement of our liberties and freedoms continues on 5 July and keeps on going.
It is the highest honor to our founding fathers and their ideals than all the flag-waving, parades and barbecues can ever do.
