Do our current leaders in Washington realize that they are moving our country in a direction that the majority of Americans don’t want to travel. We fought a long cold war, we won or so we thought. Now our leaders want to turn our country into what the only real American President in the last 30 years called an evil empire.
I remember like if it was yesterday when President Ronald Reagan said,
“General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”
What happened to us since October 3, 2008, It’s like we woke up in an alternate reality by opening up the Pandora’s box that’s we can’t seem to be able to control. And if we don’t close it up now we may lose and never get back what we once had and everyone else in the world wanted.
The $700 billion dollars that was requested for the “too big to fail” was the end of capitalism as we had known it. We are now rewarding the bad behavior of those that gambled America’s future away. The first $350 billion was released on October 3, 2008, and Congress voted to approve the release of the second $350 billion on January 15, 2009.
Now hopefully Americans will start to pay closer attention to what they are doing in Washington and hopefully we will vote them out office and restore our country back to what it was before all the madness of the “too big to fail”
- Over the past weekend, Utah Republicans denied three-term Sen. Bob Bennett a spot in the party’s primary.
You would think that they would know by now the way that Americans feel toward our government. They’re so out of touch with reality that they just don’t care to accept the fact that this “Radical Transformation of America” no one but them and their Masters want. How does given our sovereignty and destroying our constitution help out ” We the People”?
It was Thomas Jefferson that said,
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms.
A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated is not an American at all. This is just as true of the man who puts “native” before the hyphen as of the man who puts German or Irish or English or French before the hyphen. Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul. Our allegiance must be purely to the United States. We must unsparingly condemn any man who holds any other allegiance.
But if he is heartily and singly loyal to this Republic, then no matter where he was born, he is just as good an American as any one else.
The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English- Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian- Americans, or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality than with the other citizens of the American Republic.
The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans; and there ought to be no room for them in this country . The man who calls himself an American citizen and who yet shows by his actions that he is primarily the citizen of a foreign land, plays a thoroughly mischievous part in the life of our body politic. He has no place here; and the sooner he returns to the land to which he feels his real heart-allegiance, the better it will be for every good American.
Addressing the Knights of Columbus in New York City
12 October 1915 American is not an American at all.
Instead of the foolishness that is used these days by politicians that use the politics of division. We’re all Americans, either by birth or naturalization. If not than you’re either a legal resident or are here illegally. Once you become a citizen you’re an American. And if you feel otherwise get out of my country and go back to the country you have an allegiance to.
