Proud to be an American – from little tboca

7/4/11

We have another day to celebrate our Nation’s Independence, but today as we look back over the time since our Nation was established we must stop and wonder about the direction America is headed.

We’re at a crossroads and Americans must make a decision.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to 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 affect their Safety and Happiness.

We have the right to alter and abolish the present Government and to set our Nation on a course that will insure our freedoms that our forefathers laid down for us in the Constitution.

Two questions remain, (1) Are we prepared to regain our voice and implement a “Government of the people, by the people and for the people, or (2) Will we sit back and allow a few misguided groups of people destroy our once strong Nation?

Today as many are celebrating our independence we have been handed a maze of conflicting and confusing problems that must be addressed. It appears that without an agenda, we must be prepared to endure an oppressing “Ideology” that has not and will not benefit our Nation, our children or future generations to come.

A great leader and Patriot said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” Ronald Reagan

In retrospect our freedoms have been removed layer by layer during the past 40 plus years and we’ve very complacently allowed this to happen…

Our schools from kindergarten thru college have been taken over by many whose ideology is harmful to the wellbeing of our Nation. We have to accept that as our mistake – we are responsible for our children’s education.

Unions are in control and this is proving to be a very dangerous problem, which will affect our Countries stability as a free Nation. They are carving away our spitting out our freedoms, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly.

Our 1st Amendment reads, “Freedom of expression consists of the rights to freedom of speech, press, assembly and to petition the government for a redress of grievances, and the implied rights of association and belief.”

As a Nation we must aggressively restore our freedoms and this can be accomplished by downsizing our government, proper monitoring of our Government grants, restricting our Unions’ power and rights, stopping the uncontrolled donations to foreign countries that never reciprocate only take, balancing our budget and removing our credit card from the hands of those who are aggressively “redistributing” our money.

This is only a small part of what Americans can do at this time; parents can once again become parents removing the children from the controlling throne that they occupy.

We can start monitoring where our children are, who their friends are, what they are being taught in school and most of all instilling in them the tools and beliefs that will help them achieve young adulthood. “Our Children are the Future of America.”

Are we prepared to reclaim the future of America and to rediscover our principles that have been so disguised and trashed the past 2 ½ years.

If we want equality, liberty, religious freedom, self-government, Independence and our natural rights restored we must fight to restore America the Beautiful back to its once strong foundation. Lee Greenwood pretty much summed it all up when he sang,

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
