On this Independence Day, while our liberty and our forms of government are under attack from within their own ranks, while I sit in fear that this great nation and the principles on which it was built will be forever lost to the ever increasing hunger of power from our leaders, there is one phrase that keeps me going and keeps me fighting.
That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from this earth. - Abraham Lincoln
That government is on life support right now, it's power being usurped by a government of the politicians, by the politicians, for the politicians. That government is working in tandem with a government of the special interests, by the special interests, for the special interests.
Those 2 governments are the ones that put our government on life support and they are reaching out their hands to pull the plug. They are not only allowing that government to perish from the earth, they are pushing it into it's grave.
Are we the people referenced in that government going to allow this? Will we allow the corruption, the limitless thirst for power, the willingness to set aside principle for a campaign contribution and the complete disregard for our great history force OUR government to perish from this earth?
Or are we, as a people, finally going to stand up and fight to ensure that it shall not perish. That it shall remain a shining light of freedom and liberty, that it shall remain an example to all peoples of the world who wish to shake off their tyranny and live free? Are we? If we are, now is the time.
Stand up and reclaim our nation from those who wish to turn us into Europe. From those who seek to make us what our founders fought to free us from. From those who wish to re-make this nation instead of restore it. Speak up, speak out, get involved and make sure you know where your Congressmen stand and that they know where you stand. Make sure they know that this government is by YOU and not by THEM. Let them know what will not be tolerated. And let them know now!
