Yesterday, we celebrated our independence from a tyrannical oppressing government. It is just an observation of an old country boy, but maybe it should have been a wake instead – freedom’s post mortem. Maybe we should have acknowledged that we suffer from wasting disease. We are giving up our freedom without much of a fight. America, the idea not the place, is growing weaker every day. It is being led in reverse toward third world status by our very own freedom hating, middle class hating, and America hating president. Guess I just went ahead and said it. Sadly, I can find no evidence that leads me to a different conclusion.
I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. – John Adams in a letter to his wife Abigail, July 3, 1776. (He thought July 2nd would be the celebrated day as this was the day the Continental Congress voted to declare independence.)
There is no fundamental transformation under way. But, there is in progress a fundamental destruction of the American middle class. We are witnessing the fundamental destruction of the rule of law, replaced by dictatorial decree. The very concept of being an “American” is leaving us forever – being pummeled into an unrecognizable pulp. Maybe lost forever is the In God We Trust American that believes in the promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. One who believes in independence from government rather than dependence on government. No. We must first be black, white, brown, yellow, red, male, female, homosexual… each of us neatly separated and categorized by some identity, each with its own demands and be damned if those happen to trample all over the rights of another. This is just where the fundamental transformationists (communists) want us. Each group with its own fascist worldview desiring totally to stomp the life from anyone else who does not wish to follow along the path they have chosen to walk. Long gone is the American. The one who could put his arms around the idea of God given freedom for every man, woman and child and who is willing to lay down his life to preserve it, or, those like our founders who “pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” The shining light grows dimmer each day. It will not grow brighter until we resolve to again be Americans.
The American is being destroyed by the people he sent to the seat of government to be the guardians of freedom. I am not sure there are opposing sides in Washington. From my perspective, most of all who fill the seats of our federal government share the same goals. They want political power sufficient to impose their will on me, the American, and power sufficient to spread the wealth around. Not to the needy, but to their families, cronies and themselves. The wealth they hope to spread around comes from the middle class American who soon enough will be an extinct class. Then it is welcome to the third world complete with dear leader and a gray peon’s suit for everyone.
For how many years have you listened to campaigning politicians declare that we must end our dependence on foreign energy? Start with the Jimmy Carter who in 1977 signed the bill establishing the Department of Energy. A great success that. We have more energy resources than most of the nations on earth combined, yet we continue to transfer billions of dollars of American wealth to countries who mostly wish us ill. While we forfeit prosperity and national security, our government is tossing away money on failed energy products and refusing to take advantage of proven options. Here in Wild and Wonderful , a state dependent on the coal industry, Democrat Congressman Nick Rahall, Democrat Senator Joe Manchin, and Cecil Roberts, President of the United Mine Workers union are all attacking the Environmental Protections Agency’s war on coal. Never mind that all of them endorsed the leader of the war on coal who owns the EPA. Where does an American turn for relief?
While the Islamists vow to visit violence on our cities, the federal government under direction of the executive branch has left our southern borders wide open. While the progressives are insisting we must help the poor migrant children, (children no worse off than many in our own Appalachia and inner city ghettos) gang members, drug dealers, and who knows who else with what else is strolling across our borders bringing with them evil intent. Members of the United States Congress are not being allowed to visit the centers inside their own Congressional districts where these people are being housed. That is not how a free republic operates. Vlad Putin would be proud of that move. And Washington wants another round of amnesty, forgetting that they have yet to secure the border as promised following the 1986 amnesty.
What the utopians have brought American society has now been visited upon the United States Armed Forces. Apparently led by bobble head flag officers, the same identity group mentality was forced on to the military. With an exception. There is a concerted effort to accommodate every group but those who worship the Christian God. Doing that may be offensive or exclusive. Just a thought on that. A Godless military is the military that commits atrocities as standard operating procedure.
The American. An endangered species. Freedom? Hanging on a thread. A new Day of Deliverance? Sorely needed.
