"They tell us, sir, that we are weak--unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?
Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature has placed in our power. Three millions of people armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry "Peace, peace"--But there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" --- Patrick Henry, 1775
236 years later why is Patrick Henry still right? Seriously, why does Patrick Henry's speech still apply within the United States of America 236 years later?
The GOP as a whole needs to cast off the guise of "gentlemen" style politics, tip-toeing around politically correct eggshells when they should pulverize the eggshells into historical dust so our nation can remain strong both in present and future. We are fighting for our nation's very survival against a worst enemy than any foreign strength; an internal enemy based in pure selfishness. Stop making the same mistake expecting different results for the sake of sanity! The Democrat Party ( aka the completely un-democratic party) is the Trojan Horse from which the cancer of marxism spreads it's "chains and slavery". We should fight for every Godly principle and American founding principle as adamantly as the left-wing fights against our God & country.
America's founding fathers unabashedly sought God's counsel during the birth of this great nation. Is it ironic that our nation is seriously ailing as our elected leaders deny God while seeking to appease the false god, 'political correctness'? No, it is not ironic. It is time to offend the internal enemies! We need to offend those who intentionally and arrogantly deny Almighty God, trash talk our nation, spit on our Constitution, make a mockery of our rule of law, deceptively sabotage our capitalist economy, create crises to diminish our rights, create a plethera of laws to make the populace criminal subjects, who defend selfishly sinful "rights" (abortion, same-sex marriage & pornography) while denying intended constitutional rights and growing our federal government to rule the people, us.
With our 'left wing internal enemies' there is no "peace, peace"; no compromise, or reaching across the aisle. Yes, I am intentionally calling the democrats "our internal enemies" as in our nation's enemies. If they are not stopped, our nation dies because of their tyranny; communism (ultimately marxism) wins. If America dies this world will be cast into a *darkness of slavery it has never before seen. The despots (e.g. persons who exercise power tyranically) await in the outer darkness, laughing like hyenas knowing that our nation's fire is dimming because of the democrats' intentionally directed urination.
As Patrick Henry asked, "When shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week or the next year?". The elections of 2010 proved our strength to fight a formidable foe whose strength are lies and deception. The Tea Party is as all-American as the Minute Men of our nation's birth, "...millions of people armed in the holy cause of liberty"! Americans who love this nation and it's founding principles is our true strength! Use it often and boldly then the hyenas will scurry away as our internal foes fail to quench our nation's growing fire of freedom.
I cannot so eloquently put it as Patrick Henry so I conclude this writing as such, "...but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!". Amen.
[*"darkness of slavery"--China is the next big world power. Russia is not out. Saudi Arabia along with Pakistan are odd duck allies of the USA. Iran is a loud mouth nuclear-sabre rattler. And several south of the Rio Grande countries (Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Venezuela and Mexico) are being heavily courted by China. If anyone has noticed, all of these have been forging an 'unholy' alliance over the past several years heavily seasoned with an anti-USA flavor. But that is another story which is still in research...]
