On a billboard, here in town, I viewed a message that reads: “UNITY What makes this country great.”
I wanna puke! Since when is unity the reason this country is great? This country is great because of freedom. Freedom to be and do what I feel is best for me. Freedom to work for a day’s wages, freedom to keep, and use, those wages as I desire. Freedom to give what I want to, and freedom to stand up for what is right.
It was freedom that was on the minds, and hearts, of the founding fathers. Freedom from gummint intrusion, freedom from having a day’s wages taken away to support a gummint. Freedom to believe as I choose. Freedom to live where I wish.
It was freedom that gave us our continental states without any requirement to show identification to travel from one state to another. Freedom to move wherever I wish.
To my military mind, it is unity that is dividing this country. Too much emphasis is being placed on all of us being the same...liking the same thing...having the same things. Isn’t that what “outcome based education” touts? Everyone being the same? If God wanted us to be the same, I believe He would have created robots, instead of people. Truth is, He created us with “free will”, and a heart and soul that cries for freedom.
So, each and every day, we are being bombarded by freaks that don’t like people having freedom. Gummint has been granted too much liberty to confine the citizens of this country.
Then again, the Bible clearly defines for us what happens when we place our trust in man, and not in God. May God have mercy on us.

Once upon a time, in this country, there was no “concealed carry permit”. Reason? Every body carried, and the funny thing was, most of the armed robberies were out on the open plains, where it was easy to out number those with protection in mind. Think about it; eight men on horseback surround a stage coach with maybe four or five armed men in, or on it. You might get one of them, but they are gonna get all of you.
Words, really do mean a lot. Just think of the difference between the statements, “Gun Free Zone” and “Clear Fire Zone”. Yep! We gotsa problem of communication right now. Is it any wonder there is so much effort to legalize criminals? And crime? Here in South Dakota, a new law was passed identifying three levels of sexual crime criminals: So, some sex crimes are less offensive than others? You ever wonder why there is such a strong push to legalize crime??? More Democrat voters, sure, I’ll buy that. But what about the idea that so many of the people wanting these changes are criminals theirselves, and want to try and minimize the effect on their life.
We now have a “Commander in Chief” who campaigned on “Hope”. When this country was founded, the leaders leaned on “hope”. A hope centered in the Creator, Who bestowed upon us lowly critters the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You can bet your sweet bippy that ain’t the hope B. Hussein has in mind.
So often we hear the question, “Why do you carry?”; I think the correct question should be “Why don’t you carry?” To my military mind, the person who won’t carry, and wants to think the world is populated with caring individuals who are not interested in harming anyone, has no concept of evil. What is that old saying, “The smartest thing the devil ever did, was to convince people he didn’t exist”? Anyone seeing that statue of the three monkeys??? Hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil?
We will never be able to take back our country, and enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness until we are able to remove all the laws, that subjugate the citizenry, and embolden the criminals.
That President was entirely wrong when he made the statement, “We have nothing to fear except fear itself”. We need to fear evil, and not just fear it, but be prepared to engage it in mortal combat, to keep the freedom our forefather’s fought so hard to bequeath to us.
When you are willing to give up your freedom for security, rather than providing for your own security to preserve your freedom, you are a sad specimen of humanity.
Go ahead, prove me wrong!
