My fellow Americans,
Today we find ourselves again at a great American crossroad. Our government continues to spend and barrow irresponsibly burdening our children and grandchildren with debt society can never pay off; The Fed has begun monetizing our currency causing disastrous inflation; global conflict is heating up and revolution is on the horizon. All while the Washington bureaucrats ignore reality and instead choose to play political games at the perils of the American people; creating legislation and regulation with the only purpose of micromanaging every aspect of our lives; from what we eat to how, when, and who we worship, to what healthcare we can receive. The bureaucrats are even involved in picking winners and losers and regulating dust.
America has elected a president who does not recognize American Exceptionalism; who believes the Constitution is a failed document and has vowed to Fundamentally Transform this country. A country founded on the words in the Declaration of Independence, words that came at great costs. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Obama has refused to recognize our rights come from God and instead believes they are granted by the government.
At this, the words of a great American, Gerald Ford, comes to mind. President Ford once said, “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have. The document Obama calls a charter of negative liberties does not grant us freedom; it only recognizes it. Today, these freedoms are under great threat. Our government, whose only real legitimate purpose is to uphold our liberty, has, instead, begun stripping it away.
This message has nothing to do with the election, congress or, politics at all for that matter but rather man’s freedom and its preservation. It’s not about democrat or republican but rather Americans. We are the ones that are there to help our neighbors in need, the ones that work hard tirelessly until the job is done, that makes the necessary sacrifices when duty calls. America is great because America is good. We are still those people, the same people we’ve always been, through the good and the bad. Hope still exists as does good ole American ingenuity. The American Experiment works. It has always worked. It has worked for the last 200 and some years and will continue to work if it’s given a chance. It has never failed us, but we may just fail it. We must be willing to set out on a new course, today, to return to our American principles of maximum freedom and minimum government.
Ronald Reagan: president, actor, patriot once stated “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” That, ladies and gentleman, is the reason we are alive at this quintessential time in history, when man’s freedom is at the brink of extinction. It is no coincidence and it may even be in part due to Devine providence. We have, undeniably, been tasked with the great duty and responsibility to first awaken ourselves to the truths and than awaken our neighbors, friends, and family. Then, we must stand strong, question with boldness, and look adversity in the eye and proclaim, “We still Hold these truths” and man’s freedom will prevail. We must make the sacrifices today so the children of tomorrow can be free. Failure is not an option.
Less than 5% of people in modern civilization have ever lived with the freedom comparable to America and once freedom is gone, it doesn’t come back. When we lose freedom in America, there will be nowhere else to run. The flame of liberty will be extinguished forever. We shall not let down our fathers and forefathers. The men who sacrificed it all: from our founders who forged the American republic to the heroes who shed their blood: from Bunker Hill to Gettysburg, the beaches of Normandy to the mountains of Afghanistan. They shall not have died in vain. These are the best of times as much as these are the worst of times. We must be optimistic but we must also take responsibility for our liberty. In the end, freedom must be restored. It’s now or never.
Thank you and God Bless America,
