Back in 1776 the American Colonist were divided into three camps. In the first group were those that remained loyal to King George. The second group were those that straddled the fence and remained neutral. The third and final group consisted of courageous individuals that believed in the without liberty their they were in bondage.
Thanks to the courageous few that were willing to risk everything for the opportunity to live free. They wanted to create a new nation conceived in liberty where individuals would be able to enjoy the blessings of liberty.
Today there are those among us that are willing to give up their liberty in exchange for security. They look to the government to provide them with the things they want. Whenever the government provides a benefit to one, it must first take the property of another. When we take things that do not belong to us, we have committed a crime, but when the government steals from one to give to another they call it charity.
Our Founding Fathers understood and were willing to fight and die to prevent a distant Monarch from stealing their property. Today the tyrants reside in Washington D.C. and they pick our pockets to enrich themselves and the corporations than fund their election campaigns.
As long as the people remain asleep, the politicians will continue spending our money like a drunken sailor.
America was once known as the”Land of Opportunity” ,but I am sorry to say we have become the land of the FREE lunch. Unfortunately a large segment of the population want the government to take care of them.
As long as we keep re-electing corrupt career politicians we are going to continue reaping the harvest of the seeds we have sown. Those that we have been electing have been picking our collective pockets to buy the votes of those that are receiving special benefits. It is impossible for a government to provide benefits to one group of Americans without first taking the property the productive members of society.
In the Preamble to the Constitution one of the missions of our government is to promote the General Welfare not provide benefits for specific individuals or groups. The time has come for you to decide to join the ranks of Traitors, Cowards or Patriots.
