Holes: A mother’s love of son and country

“Doc, send my uniform to my mom. She’ll fix ‘em for me,” once said, was all the breathe that young soldier had left in him.

Major Daniels honored that soldier’s last request. He and a sergeant removed the uniform in silence. They set the pants and top across chair backs to let the blood dry out. It would take some time to let that much of a soak be ready for sending to the soldier’s mother.

No one wanted to believe in war. So untouched as the country was by it for so long. Sure, soldiers came home from war all the time. Plenty of conflicts and fighting, over there. But in the streets and towns of America, no, who would have thought so?

But it happened anyway. While plucking at the rose petals of freedom, the Federals had finally grasped a thorn. Once orders were given to use armed drones on citizens within the States all hell broke loose.

There were minor militias in the field across the country for both sides. Federal forces were of course the better armed and trained, in the beginning anyway. Militia backup for the federals were nothing but untrained, undisciplined thugs from the streets, looking to set their wrath upon anyone who got in the way. More in it for the pillaging ‘pay-back’ as they had been told all their lives they were due than any sense of preserving the union or patriotism. Blood was the currency.

In the Rebel ranks, all walks of life were there. Young, old. Rich, poor. Men and women. Everyone who knew what was at stake turned out in some way or another. Still, they were outnumbered. A war against them, generations in the planning had been let loose. From private to general though among the Rebel ranks, all knew it was a fight of winner-takes-all. Knowing what was at stake steeled spines as well as heated blood with courage enough to stand against those lopsided odds.

Her son’s funeral was a quiet affair. So many of her family were supports of the Federals, sending hateful letters to the mourning mother of how glad they were that her boy was dead: He was so stupid for fighting. Another brainwashed extremist as far as they were concerned, good riddance.

Those who weren’t there that loved the boy were already gone to fight or dead. As for the rest of the people who had known that young soldier, they didn’t have the time to worry about what was going on or to come to his funeral. No matter what happened those people didn’t care one way or the other, indifferent to anything other than what was on TV. As far as those kinds of people were concerned their lives were static. Nothing ever changed or would. Blissful indifference.

She stood there with her husband. He stood holding her, solid as a rock. Only his eyes told of the pain and anger ravaging within. Together the soldier’s parents stood over him, even after the grave was filled in and the workers left.

In the morning her husband left with a kiss. Rifle slung over his shoulder and a bag in hand. For a moment he stood looking back at his wife, his home of so many years. At the flag hung from his porch. Meeting his wife’s eyes- husband and wife-father and mother- both knew exactly what had to be done and were set about doing it.

Several days later a paper wrapped package came to her in the mail. Letters full of hate still came but had become a trickle. To each of those kinds of letters received she sent notes in response, notes of forgiveness. She did not return to those senders back their hate, but love instead. No easy task. She let her faith guide her pen strokes.

Feeling the softness beneath the paper wrapping she knew what was wrapped inside. Over the last year she had gotten several like it. Her son would send back uniforms and other things that needed to be mended. Some things were hard to come by anymore so an old fashioned approach was needed. Needle and thread. Frugality.

It was not her son’s handwriting on the paper she stared at from her chair at the dining room table. With great care she opened her last package of her son. She took up the uniform and sought the places to be mended.

Her heart was hard yet her fingers did their work. Threading the needle. Stitch by stitch. Her sons dried blood stained the fabric where she closed up holes. Bullet holes. Such small things.

She pricked a finger while at the last hole. One that would have been near to her son’s heart. She pressed the fingertip into the shirts stain, mixing hers and his together.

Laying out the clothes across her bed she went in to take a shower. There with the water in her face she cried aloud. Letter the spray wash away her tears as fast as they came. All that was held back against her heart she let free.

In the morning she stepped down her porch and walked to her car. She turned to look back, standing for a moment. She looked at the home she had lived for so many years. At the flag hanging from her porch. To the window upstairs that had been her son’s bedroom. A rifle slung over her shoulder and a uniform stained crimson in places scarred by careful stitches. She knew what needed to be done, and set about doing it.

Review for Last Ounce of Courage by Joseph Harris

Last Ounce of Courage lives up to the billing: A Story of Family, Faith and Freedom. I attended a preview screening of this film Tuesday, August 28 in Laurel hosted by executive producers and writers, Richard and Gina Headrick. Having been close friends with the Headricks for the past 18 years and working with them on various projects, and knowing the quality of their work, my expectations of the film were confirmed and surpassed. It is inspiring and entertaining, but most of all, it is a call to action for patriots to challenge the powers-that-be who would strip away our religious and civic freedoms.
The main character, Bob Revere, played by veteran actor Marshall Teague, is a pharmacist and the part time mayor of a small town which stopped displaying anything pertaining to Christmas years ago. Even the school’s Christmas play has become a winter play with the song Silent Night secularized. It all began years ago when a civil liberties organization forced a local mission to remove a cross from its building.
Bob is a Medal of Honor recipient, a real war hero who knows how to fight, but lost his will to stand after his son was killed in battle overseas. He has been alienated from his daughter-in-law and the son of his son who was killed, until they move back into town. His teen age grandson has questions about the father he never knew and Bob doesn’t want to talk about it. One day, when the topic of why the town no longer celebrates Christmas comes up, the grandson questions Bob and asks why no one will stand up for what’s right. This is the catalyst that gets Bob to thinking. Through a series of events, Bob finds his courage and realizes the importance of standing for what his son died for: freedom. He erects a Christmas tree and other Christmas displays, gets on the news and stirs up a firestorm. The villain in the movie is played by Fred Williamson and he is the representative of an organization like the ACLU and strikes terror in everyone’s heart, except for Bob, who challenges the “unconstitutionality” to celebrate Christmas or have any religious expression on public property.
Bob eventually replaces the cross on the mission and goes to jail, but the town is energized and stands by him to the end. There is a great surprise ending in two sections that no one will anticipate and it really closes out the film with a heart rending challenge to stand for God and liberty.
This film is endorsed by Dr. James Dobson, Chuck Norris, Governor Rick Perry, former Governor Mike Huckabee, and many others.
Pastor, promote this in your church and take a whole group. There is nothing in the film to embarrass you or your church. It is opening in over 1200 theaters nationwide September 14. There are a few exceptions where it is available earlier so go to www.standusa.com/lastounceofcourage for theater locations and ticket information. Joseph Harris

The American Gift That Truly Keeps on Giving

Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ and an American tradition that has evolved into a world-renowned holiday that brings us the season of the unconditional giving of oneself to others. 

While the giving of ourselves may include various different forms of  the giving of one’s time,  love, money, and material things all wrapped up in brightly colored ribbons and bows, today I’d like to celebrate what I consider to be some of the most wonderful gifts being given this year from deep within the hearts and souls of true Patriotic Americans. The gift I speak of is our largely unique, longstanding America freedom from an over-bearing, debt-spending, out of control, tyrannical government that has America on the verge of a financial and moral collapse. The gift of freedom.

America’s collective Christian faith has been at the forefront of America’s unity in of our battle against an oppressive ruling class government since the early days of our founding, starting with our Declaration of Independence from our first oppressor Great Britain, to the world battles against assorted tyrannical madmen such as Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein, Hugo Chavez etc. Millions of people have migrated to America to escape oppressive, tyrannical rulers and governments for centuries.  

That brings us to the current battle in America today against the most dangerous oppressor of modern American history, one which our Constitution has protected us from for some 235 years: Big Government Socialism. Today we no longer have a government that serves the people. Every single prosperous country in the world that has accepted this stealth form of oppressive Communism masquerading as utopian socialism built upon false share-the-wealth promises has ended in chaos and poverty the world over. The prime example of the day that proves this point: The European debt crisis. When taking an objective look into that elitist-ruling-class manufactured crisis that has brought down the governments of Italy and Greece with several more to follow, we see just where that utopian European Socialism leads us once again. The elite are getting bailed out by the working class over and over again without being allowed a voice in the conversation. Crony-capitalist bankers and government-connected thieves are prospering while the working class faces economic Armageddon in what is now called the European Union. 

The Socialism-induced collapse of the EU brings us full-circle to what now appears to be America’s last line of defense against the ruling-class oppression of today’s European-style Socialism that now threatens to infect America and wipe out her historic personal freedoms and enduring prosperity. The last line of defense I speak of here, is the coalition of Constitutional conservatives, true American Patriots, to include the all-important group of information sharing citizens, Tea Party political activists, and internet freedom-fighters working 24/7 to inform the public of the dangers of today’s all-too-powerful, constitution-trampling U.S. government. Through this massive effort of self-less giving, these Patriots are indeed our last, best hope of avoiding the stealth European Socialism that now has all of Europe engulfed in poverty, chaos and an uncertain future. America must be made aware of these dangers before they engulf America as they have all of Europe today. 

To all of the Patriotic citizen journalists across America, including the engaged stay at home Moms, the concerned senior citizens, the American Freedom groups, the Tea Party warriors, the true Constitutional conservatives of Congress, the information-sharing networks and all of the Patriotic bloggers who continue to give selflessly and tirelessly to stop the big government oppression we are under attack from today, thank you. A heartfelt thank you for uniting to give all of America the greatest gift of all this holiday season: The gift of continuing American freedom and prosperity that has made this nation the greatest nation on earth.  Thank all of you Patriots, and Merry Christmas

 

Footnote: As I consider myself to be a citizen journalist writing here at CDN to give the gift of freedom through insightful information-sharing, I would like to add the following info-byte from the UK that shows us the relevancy of certain anti-Americans that constantly denounce and minimize the Christian faith in America, (as in the war on Christmas) in order to install European-style socialism into America:  

From: http://www.soon.org.uk/christmas.htm :     

Today in the West, not many people consider the religious meaning to Christmas. Most people in UK or Europe will not go to a religious church meeting, even at Christmas. It has become a busy race to spend money on presents, and get ready for the Day. In UK, our shops stay open till late Christmas Eve and often open again on Boxing Day with the cut-price ‘sales’. (Not much holiday for the poor shop workers!) A visitor from another world would think that Christmas was a festival to the gods of money and shopping.  

 

 

 

What it Means to Me to Be an American

I found an old paper my father wrote a long time ago – May 1955 to be exact.

I knew my father had strong feelings about our country later on in life, but I didn’t really know much about it early on.

I am going to share it with all of you – remember this was originally written in 1955 but it still has a tremendous meaning even today.

 

     Being an American means Democracy. Democracy is a government of the people, by the people, for the people, as Lincoln defined it in his famous Gettysburg Address. But it is more than that. It is a way of thinking, and a way of living. It is the foundation on which our civilization is built, and on which it must continue to rest. It is an American ideal, resulting from inheritance and environment.

    Our forefathers made great sacrifices to lay the foundations for our government, which each generation has helped to build.  This government is based upon the ideals of freedom, equality, opportunity, and cooperation.  These ideals represent the American way of life – the democratic way.

    Democracy recognizes the importance of the people through representative government.  It safeguards and protects them by its laws.  It provides them the opportunity to attain whatever success they desire. It offers the condition for a higher standard of living than any other country. More than anything else it stands for freedom of speech and expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

    These principles of democracy have made our people happier, more progressive, more creative, and more energetic than any other people.  A democracy gives us all these advantages and privileges but it also places upon us certain responsibilities.  If we are worthy to accept the democratic way of life we must be willing to assume our duty, and help keep it democratic.  We young Americans hold the fate of the coming years in our hands. We must work out the future of our country.  First of all, we must learn to fully appreciate the many privileges which are ours.

    What does democracy mean to me?

Next to the gift of life, it is the greatest of all gifts.

Some points in this piece I don’t agree with completely, maybe it is the strong Conservative and Christian  beliefs I have. But whatever it may be I am still glad for now that we have our freedoms to say and do as we wish. I hope you enjoyed this small piece as much as I did.

It is funny how 56 years has gone passed and the meaning is still the same.

Living Up To Expectations


“As our enemies have found we can reason like men, so now let us show them we can fight like men also.”-Thomas Jefferson

We the American people were lucky enough to be blessed by God Almighty to be born in the greatest country ever formed. With guidance from Godly men this country was birthed on the principles that all men are created equal and that no man should be allowed to be a tyrant. We have been given a charge to protect and defend these rights even if it means bloodshed. Our forefathers made sure to write in our constitution the means of defending the founding principles. The Second Amendment gives us this RIGHT AND OBLIGATION.

“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”- 2nd Amendment of the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION

Many have tried to take the word “Militia” and interpret that to mean that the government controlled military group are the ones that have the right to bear arms, not the common citizen. “The right of the people to keep and bear Arms” is the phrase they make sure not to talk about, for it is we the people that make up the militia that our founding fathers speak of.  The first line of the oath our military personnel take is, “I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”. This puts the primary objective for the great men and women who serve our country to be the protection of the country and her people. “That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same” reaffirms that the protection of the principles this country was founded on is their primary objective.  “And that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”  For those of you that have served, and some that have not, we know that there are provisions that entitle the removal of officers that do not uphold the oath.

I believe that every citizen should take the first two points of the Military Oath and actually act on it, first in the ballot box and physically if absolutely necessary. The reason the left wants to disarm us is so that we cannot fight the tyranny they want to impose on us. If we give up our right to bear arms we will become defenseless against tyranny.

“An army of principles can penetrate where an army of soldiers cannot.” -Thomas Paine

Thomas Paine was a true Patriot and wise man. He understood that the principles we live by is what will make us or break us. The principle of defending oneself and their beliefs and virtues is what built this great nation. Let us not destroy the great work that they achieved with our laziness and fear of being politically incorrect.

___________________________________________

For those of you that own firearms, train hard and well and teach those that do not know how. Be good stewards of the right to bear arms, for we are the last line of defense against tyranny.

-Benjamin Wallace

 

The New Civil War

In case you have just returned from a long space-ship flight from Planet Zeon, I need to let you know that America is involved in another civil war. It is a war for the very soul of our Nation—as was our first Civil War! This war is not necessarily between America’s two controlling political parties. The war is between an ideology of conservatism and liberalism. And these two groups of thinkers are purposely dividing our nation, and these two diverse philosophies are about to separate the men from the boys.

Fiscal Conservatives are telling Americans that what they are attempting to do socially and economically is for the good of both the nation and her people. The liberals are telling all who will listen that what they are attempting to do is for the good of some Americans. From what I have seen and read both philosophical camps are being very honest and up front about what their positions are and what their fighting tactics will be. The two differing political and social philosophies should make it easy for Americans to pick sides; just as the obvious political differences in America in the years before the Civil War should have made it easy for most Americans to pick sides. Unfortunately Americans don’t always do the right thing! Americans don’t always make the right choices! There are many variables in our lives which can influence us to say or do or agree with what we know is wrong. Greed and power are way up there in the influencing of choosing wrong over right. Laziness and complacency also play a big part in determining which political party you favor.

Even Sincere People Make Mistakes

In the Civil War, friends and family were willing to fight each other to death in order to keep their rights. One side decided it was their patriotic duty to fight to free American citizens from slavery. The other side decided it was their patriotic duty to fight to own (free) Americans. Two complete opposites. Two completely different ideologies, and yet both sides were willing to die for what they believed was the right thing to do. It is not uncommon to hear the retold stories of the Yanks and Rebs singing church hymns as they camped at night on opposite sides of a river, only to wake up early the next morning with the goal of killing each other! Obviously, the people fighting on one side of this war were wrong!

Well the two differing philosophies are at it again! Fortunately, there are no guns involved in this war! But mark my words; even though there are no guns involved in this war, it is basically the same war all over again! Americans on one side are willing to fight to save this country and her people; while the people on the other side are willing to fight for the rights for a few to control people. Only this time the slave owner is Big Government. And their ‘partner in crime’ is Big Union.

This War Can Get Confusing so stay Focused!

From a literal Christian perspective it seems that the liberal politicians have it right. They say that they are standing up for poor people. Are they? The fiscally liberal politicians cry out that they are not in favor of cutting the budget because it will hurt those poor people who can’t afford medical insurance, and those poor people who are on fixed governmental incomes, and those poor people who are poor because they can’t find employment in this bad economy. Sounds like the non-budget cutting liberals are really in favor of helping poor people – just as Jesus would be. Would Jesus agree with liberal politicians? (We will answer this a little later.) But we know this much about Jesus. Jesus would definitely not want the Christian church financially supporting any health-care organization or government which is helping women kill their babies. There is a big difference between widows, orphans and sexually permissive females who casually and flippantly abort their babies. (This is another story for another day.)

On the other hand most Americans have heard (mostly from liberal sources) that the fiscally conservative politicians want to cut the budget so dramatically that old people, young people, women and children will suffer so tremendously that there will be people dying by the thousands – some liberals even openly profess that millions of Americans will die of hunger. Americans will hear stories (again from the liberal side) of how women will be dying in back alleys from self-induced botched abortions. And poor widowed single mothers will have to watch their children die from lack of medical care. (I warned you conservatives that you needed to stay focused. Remember, you are in a war.) The liberals unabashedly use words like: drastic, extreme, and barbaric when referring to the size of the budget cuts that fiscally responsible conservatives propose. Do you think it would be fair to say the liberals are using a little political propaganda to get their points across? You think! These political liberals will say whatever it takes just so long as it erroneously exaggerates whatever the conservatives are trying to do. I may be wrong, (NOT!) but I highly doubt that even the meanest conservative in America would purposely let one American, let alone thousands or even millions of Americans die as a result of budget cuts. Fixing entitlements like Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid are going to hurt, but they won’t kill anybody—except for maybe one or two shell-shocked liberals.  And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Oh yeah, back to the Jesus thing. Would Jesus Christ Himself be on the side of fiscally responsible conservatives or Big Government liberals? I really don’t believe that this is that hard to figure-out—that is if you are Bible believing Christian! So let’s go to the Scriptures. The mighty Apostle Paul, the Christian Church leader, the man who talked to Christ Himself, the guy who wrote most of the New Testament Bible, had the same problems with liberal thinkers and social leeches in the church that we have today in America. The Apostle Paul wrote to the church leaders and told them to solve this sin problem this way.

And now, dear brothers and sisters, we give you this command with the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ: Stay away from any Christian who lives in idleness and doesn’t follow the tradition of hard work we gave you. For you know that you ought to follow our example. We were never lazy when we were with you. We never accepted food from anyone without paying for it. We worked hard day and night so that we would not be a burden to any of you. It wasn’t that we didn’t have the right to ask you to feed us, but we wanted to give you an example to follow. Even while we were with you, we gave you this rule: “Whoever does not work should not eat.” Yet we hear that some of you are living idle lives, refusing to work and wasting time meddling in other people’s business. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we appeal to such people—no, we command them: Settle down and get to work. Earn your own living. – 2 Thessalonians 3: 6-12

Wow, would this Christian teaching work great for America today or what? Now again, the Apostle Paul is not telling Christians that they should not help out people. The Apostle Paul is simply commanding that the Christian Church should not help lazy, irresponsible people. Below is another excellent Bible teaching out of the New Testament. The verses above and the verses below will clearly show that God does not care for the term ‘being politically correct.’

The church should care for any widow who has no one else to care for her. But if she has children or grandchildren, their first responsibility is to show godliness at home and repay their parents by taking care of them. This is something that pleases God very much. But a woman who is a true widow, one who is truly alone in this world, has placed her hope in God. Night and day she asks God for help and spends much time in prayer. But the widow who lives only for pleasure is spiritually dead. Give these instructions to the church so that the widows you support will not be criticized. But those who won’t care for their own relatives, especially those living in the same household, have denied what we believe. Such people are worse than unbelievers. A widow who is put on the list for support must be a woman who is at least sixty years old and was faithful to her husband. She must be well respected by everyone because of the good she has done. Has she brought up her children well? Has she been kind to strangers? Has she served other Christians humbly? Has she helped those who are in trouble? Has she always been ready to do good? The younger widows should not be on the list, because their physical desires will overpower their devotion to Christ and they will want to remarry. 12 Then they would be guilty of breaking their previous pledge. Besides, they are likely to become lazy and spend their time gossiping from house to house, getting into other people’s business and saying things they shouldn’t.  So I advise these younger widows to marry again, have children, and take care of their own homes. Then the enemy will not be able to say anything against them. If a Christian woman has relatives who are widows, she must take care of them and not put the responsibility on the church. Then the church can care for widows who are truly alone. – 1 Timothy 5: 3-16

Enough said about Jesus’ position!

America is slowly Bleeding to Death

Fact Number One – This country is so far in debt, that unless we fix our budgets and pay off our bills, America as we know it is going to implode. This is a fact. Unless we fix America’s numerous multi-trillion dollar debts and get our annual budgets actually and factually balanced, the weight of those debts is going to crush this country like an ant under the foot of a fat man’s shoe. This is not a conservative propaganda ploy. Everyone in America knows that America is bleeding financially. I am just afraid that many do not know just how serious the economic bleeding is! I am also afraid that there are even more who don’t care.

Fact Number Two – America has a money spending problem. America is spending more money than they are taking in. This is a fact.

Fact Number Three – Now the important thing to realize about Fact Number Two is that America does not have a money problem. America has a spending problem. This is a fact. Presently, America takes in enough revenue to solve her budgets issues – if certain political dweebs would allow us to severely cut the wasted spending that is going on in this country.

I am not going to go into details about how much of this country’s taxpayer monies are wasted. I am not going to give you a detailed CPA account of the billions (yes billions) of dollars that are literally wasted by Big Government each year. I am not going to list the names of all the multi-million or even multi-billion federally funded or federally run agencies or organizations which could be severely budgeted or eliminated all together. I am not going to list the billions of dollars of foreign ‘aid’ that is spent each year in countries that don’t even like us! Do a simple Google search for ‘government financial waste’ and you will find thousands of hits which will clearly lay out the billions upon billions of tax-payer dollars that our government wastes each year.

Conservatives: Are You in this Budget War for the Long Haul?

President Lincoln had a famous quote; “Be sure you put your feet in the right place, and then stand firm.” Conservative political leaders need to truly believe that the laws and budget cuts they are attempting to pass are right for America and right for her people. When you truly believe something is right, you must be steadfast in that belief in spite of your surroundings and in spite of the pressures put on you to give up. This is what a conviction is.

Conservatives, do you have the stomach for this up-coming budget fight? Do you have the conservative audacity and resolve to ignore the liberal budget-cut mantra that will be spewing out of the mouths of liberals? Do you have the ‘stones’ to look into the eyes of the American voters and your liberal friends and clearly explain to them that liberal politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Dick Durbin, Charlie Rangle and Harry Reid are not only political cowards, they are unpatriotic and political liars? Do you conservative politicians have the backbone to not mince words and to tell the American people want they need to hear and not necessarily what they want to hear.? There will be no sacred cows in this fight. I can promise you that the liberals will fight dirty. The liberals will have no problem spending hundreds of millions of (union donated) dollars to buy television, radio, internet and newspaper ads which will spin the budget cuts in such a way that they will make you conservatives seems like a reincarnated Genghis Khan.

Conservatives, take off the gloves. It is going to get real ugly in the months ahead! And I don’t mind you standing up and fighting for me. Just make sure you are in this fight to win. The second place finisher in a boxing match is still the loser!  Remember these liberals (just like the public union employees) are fighting for their very existence. The liberals know (just like the public union employees know) that what the conservatives are trying to accomplish will change the political and social climate in America for a long time to come. These fiscally stupid liberals have enough brains to know that if they lose these budget fights it will definitely put an end to Big Government!

Except for the Civil War, political philosophies in America never divided this nation quite like today’s budget wars. There is a very good chance that if we do not fix America’s financial problems this country will become a second- or third-world nation. America is a China hiccup away from going under. If China decides they want a serious return on the money we owe them, America as we know it is done.

Presently both conservatives and liberals are standing pretty firm in their positions. And the American citizens on both sides of this argument are also standing firmly behind their political parties. And in spite of the obviousness of the serious budget and debt issues America has, some refuse to help solve the problems. It is blatantly logical which politicians in this budget war are trying to do the right thing. And yet the other side refuses to help. The vast majority of liberal politicians in this country are just like the liberal Big Government public union teachers in this country. They are self-centered and they are self-serving and will let this country die economically just so long as they get their way. So Mr. and Mrs. Conservative please don’t forget that even if you do the right thing, there will be people who will speak evil of you so don’t get discouraged. You will always be considered evil by some people, so be thick-skinned. And Mr. and Mrs. Conservative please don’t start this fight if you are only it in because you like the poll numbers. And please don’t tell me that you are going to fight for my conservative values only to bail out when you get poked in the eye once and awhile. You conservatives control the microphones of this land right now. Choose you words wisely. And Mr. and Mrs. Conservative Politician, don’t you dare tell me that you consider yourself a patriotic conservative and then run and hide when the real fighting starts. Right now America needs conservative men and women who are more than willing to stand in the gap for however long it takes, for those of us who can’t.

My Favorite Democrat is a True American Patriot

Pictured at left is Representative Dennis Kucinich. ( D-OH ) Mr. Kucinich was born on Oct. 8th, 1946, and has been serving in Congress since 1997.  He was a candidate seeking the Democratic nomination for President of the United States  in both 2004 and 2008. While this independant writer is staunchly opposed to today’s dangerous nanny-state Liberal agenda and Mr. Kucinich’s seemingly far left leaning ideology, I can not deny his recent support of our Constitutional laws and support for our Founding Father’s basis for building our Republic in his recent speech. Keep in mind that his recent bombardment and harsh criticism of President Obama’s illegal war in Libya could also be a ploy that points to Kucinich plotting for another run at the Democratic nomination for the Presidential election in 2012. He has also ran twice already, and maybe he thinks the third time will be the charm, especially seeing as to how far Obama’s approval ratings have fallen today.

Every once in a blue moon some real truth comes out of a politician’s mouth, and regardless of the motive, it still it bears paying attention to today. While media propagandists and career political hacks alike try to deny the illegality of Obama’s engagement in war with Libya today, Mr. Kucinich lays out the facts about the Libyan civil war Obama has engaged the U.S. military in, and also makes a very well-defined case for what I would call a demand for impeachment hearings  immediately. Take the time to watch this entire speech on the House floor, and you will see some stark contradictions to the falsehoods being promoted in today’s media about the now-termed Kinetic Military Action in Libya.

Not lost in my approval for Mr. Kucinich’s stand against Obama’s war in Libya, is the fact that he is an anti-war zealot, no matter what the situation is, or how America’s National security is threatened. War is hell, yes, but is is also necessary, as history has proven.  Mr. Kucinich also is a career politician, who has been on the taxpayer dole since the tender age of 21. Maybe actually working for a living would have given this man a little more respect for the capitalism that has afforded Americans their freedoms and prosperity for centuries. Taking all of that into account, one can not deny the facts about the illegal Libyan war that Mr. Kucinich shines some sunlight on in his recent floor speech.  Motives aside, Mr. Kucinich lays out all the facts brilliantly here, about how the U.S. Constitution makes it illegal for the President to wage war on another country that hasn’t attackes us, or poses an imminent danger to our security.  He also shes some light on the facts that before this war even started, it appears that the Obama administration and his appointees had been planning this action ahead of time,and without informing the American people.

I call Mr. Kucinich a true Patriot for defending the Constitution and rule of law in America today. He obviously has a brilliant mind that shows he is capable of understanding the complete picture of the illegal U.S. involvement in the Libyan war of today. It is such a waste that he missed out on understanding our Capitalistic system, and the values of hard work to get what a person wants today early on in his life through actually having to work for a living, instead of  spending over 4 decades sucking on the taxpayers wallets. Had he done that, he might be known today as a true old-fashioned Democratic champion for the working man, instead of the Socialistic Liberal wealth redistributor that he has become.

It is very easy to give other people’s money away to make yourself look like a hero, especially when you have spent your whole life as nothing more than a big-spending, tax dollar sucking politician. Mr. Kucinich has certainly come out with a dandy of a seemingly totally Patriotic speech here, yet is the fact that he is basically an anti-American, anti-capitalism Liberal the other 99% of the time that says he will never get my vote for anything, let alone for President of  The United States of America.

IOWA AND OHIO ARE NEXT. WILL YOU HELP?

From Bob Russell on the Patriot Action Network:

Please contact the governors of Ohio and Iowa. They are the next on the list in this fight against union thuggery.  I have listed contact information below and have posted the letters I sent to them last week. You are welcome to send my letters out as they are written, edit them to suit yourself. or use them as a guide to write your own letter or e-mail.  I urge all of you to contact these brave men and let them know We the People are with them in the fight for OUR FREEDOM.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

Governor Branstad,                                                                                                                        March 4, 2011

I am writing about the situation with the public employee unions in your state.  I have written a letter of support of Governor Walker in Wisconsin and want to add you to my list of elected officials who I admire and support.  I urge you to continue to look to the future of your state and our nation in fighting this intrusion into the pockets of American citizens.

I have a great deal of respect for those who teach our children and keep us safe from criminals and fire dangers but there comes a time when they must see the evils perpetrated on all of us by union leadership.  The great majority of American citizens realize the fiscal situation we are in and will support you and others in the battle for fiscal responsibility.  Too many of these public employee union people either don’t see the problems here or refuse to acknowledge the issues facing the entire nation.  I can’t for the life of me understand how they think it will end when the entire country is broke.   Apparently those teaching our children don’t know enough about economics to understand.  It is a sad thing when someone, like me with only a high school diploma as my educational high point, knows more about how our economy works than people who have college degrees.

I know you are now and will continue to be under a great deal of pressure from those who are so selfish and arrogant that they cannot see the forest for the trees.  I urge you and you fellow conservatives in the Iowa state government to stand strong in the face of this onslaught and stick to your position of fiscal responsibility.  I know what the unions are saying, I know what the media is saying, and I know the truth.  Oklahoma is working on the same type of legislation and this fight will soon come to every state where intelligent economic steps are taken to rein in spending and begin to make decisions that are realistic financially.

You have my respect and my undying support for your stand, not only for Iowa, but for the entire nation.  My prayers and thoughts are with you and those who stand with you.  What you do in the next few weeks or months will have an incredible impact on the future of our nation. You, Governor Walker, and the others in the middle of this fight hold our future in your hands.  If you cave and give in to the radicals opposing you we will all lose, including those you are fighting against.  I wish they could understand what they are saying, but it is very apparent they are educated beyond their intelligence.

God Bless You and God Bless America

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Sincerely,
