We’re Talking; They’re Doing; So Who is Winning?

I listen to outraged radio and television talk show hosts, clearly arguing against what is happening with the out of control federal government, sometimes getting heated to the point of obvious frustration, meanwhile Obama and the enemy within are passing legislation and borrowing more money than we can ever pay back. The left and their leader Obama are willingly bringing on an economic crisis of enormous proportion, trying to destroy capitalism, free markets, freedom, and our American Dream, and we are waiting until November to counter?

You need to read “Samuel Adams, A-Life” by Ira Stoll, to understand how this type of battle would have been handled by one of our most underappreciated founders. Sam Adams was the ultimate agitator for liberty, and if he was here today would have riled up the masses to frenzy, and stormed the house and sent every one of our representative’s home by any means necessary to do so. Our founders understood the cost of freedom:

“The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards.” Sam Adams

“As long as the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader. If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the people, they will never be enslaved. This will be their great security.” Sam Adams

“Every generation needs a new revolution.” Thomas Jefferson

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny” Thomas Jefferson

“Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.” Thomas Jefferson

"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

"Our properties within our own territories [should not] be taxed or regulated by any power on earth but our own." -- Thomas Jefferson, 1774

"The hour is fast approaching, on which the Honor and Success of this army, and the safety of our bleeding Country depend. Remember officers and Soldiers, that you are free men, fighting for the blessings of Liberty -- that slavery will be your portion, and that of your posterity, if you do not acquit yourselves like men." -- George Washington, 1776

What is our promise to our posterity? Will we wait to take action until it is too late?

We can see what is happening and know where we are heading so why do we think we can wait? Last night Greta Van Susteren was arguing we had to bail out Greece. Why? She suggested the domino effect because we are all linked globally especially through the economy. Greece is the size of the City of Los Angeles. If you can justify a bailout for Greece where does it end? When do we cut the cord?

Our constitution protects Americans and only Americans. This is truly the end if we have to bail out every lazy, corrupt, two bit dictator, kingdom, or democracy around the world.

When will we be willing to protect our posterity? We can talk about it, but the enemies of the American Dream are doing something about it…
