The Time Has Come to Embrace the F- Word
We are pretending it's not a thing
We aren’t discussing it, in fact, we are pretending it’s not even a thing.
Most of the media tells us that it is not a thing...not a real thing, certainly nothing to be held on to or cherished. They laugh and mock, promising us so much more, so much better, if we can just move on from those old, antiquated ideas.
The Democratic Presidential contenders obviously don't value it, (well they do, but only for themselves) as they stump, working hard to promote the complete opposite of what it represents.
So many of us, here in the United States of America don’t even realize that it is in jeopardy, because it has been taken for granted for so long, leaving us open and receptive to a dangerous and deadly progression, which should be avoided like the plague!
This endangered precious thing should be treated as such, something which must be protected and defended....at all costs!
We should not be so willing to surrender it; just like that, on a whim, with the snap of the finger of an out of touch old coot or some misguided fool!
The condition of being free of restraints. Liberty of the person from slavery, oppression or incarceration. Possession of civil rights; immunity from the arbitrary exercise of authority. Exemption from unpleasant or onerous conditions.
Yes freedom; precious, beautiful, sought out, fought for, freedom.
We are a beacon of freedom, here in the United States of America, we have been, since our inception.
We don't just talk about having freedom.
We don't have to wish, hope, pray it, into a reality.
It is truth, it's our reality!
Our rights, granted by God, acted upon through words, actions and documentation of our Founding Fathers, by design, to stand the test of time.
Fortunately and so far, we haven't had to mount horses or bring out the old school, dark ages weaponry in order to win it back from tyrants. Our predecessors so bravely and unselfishly fought that fight, for us!
We aren't having to fight to win it back, but we sure as heck seem to be willing to give it up and give it away; to turn our rights, our freedom...over to others.
Maybe we should stock up on some old weaponry, just in case the left is any more successful than they've already been in infringing upon our rights.
The entire Democratic Party speaks of nothing else, but what they are ready, willing and able, to do for us and give to us, as if God and all that has been done by and through God's grace, falls short.
They're encouraging criminal behavior, by telling those not living within our borders to just step on in and either step on or over others that have come before them. Those whom did things the right way, coming here for the right reasons, seeking freedom and opportunity....not empty promises of gifts and such.
They are encouraging the younger generation to do the same, to step on or over, those who came before. Those who couldn’t afford college, didn't receive the college scholarships, but still wanted to attend. So they worked and scraped and saved, put off marriage, starting a family, took classes at night in order to work during the day, whatever was required of them.
But with Bernie, Elizabeth and company...they've all said it in one way or another, don't work to pay your way through school, take out the loans, go into debt and they, your fairy godfathers and godmothers, will be there waiting on the other side, to make that debt....disappear!
As if we didn't hear it enough during the Obama years, they, the Dems, want to give us all free healthcare too: they, the Gov, will pay for it, (well not really, it's complicated) but that's what they're promising.
If you'll just turn your health needs over to them, they'll make your worries, aches and pains and...your premiums disappear!
They will make your dreams come true.
Gods and gifts
Here of late, I've been reminded of the story of Elijah and Baal...and then, wouldn't you just know it, the Preacher, of all things, preached on it, in church Sunday.
This suggests to me, I've no choice, but to include it:
On one hand, we have the ever faithful, obedient Elijah, he who knew who had the answers, who held the key. On the other hand, we have Baal, the cool god, the gifts god, Santa-god, you could say.
People swarmed to him in droves, because of what they had convinced themselves.....he was going to do for them!
He would make it rain!
He'd see to it that it would rain, their crops would grow and as a result, they would prosper.
Until the day, the not so popular Elijah threw down the gauntlet.
The God of creation, of Abraham and Elijah, up against their 'Santa-god'.
As we remember from our Sunday School days, it was no contest.
- 1 Kings 18:25-39
The Democratic contenders are attempting to be the coolest of the cool; all things to all people, they will give to make life easier and simpler, asking only for your freedom in return.
Can anyone reading this, in all honesty, look at all of these promises made, gifts offered, debt forgiveness mantra, etc. and not see that their precious freedom is at stake?
Looking to others to see you through life, because they've convinced you, you aren't good enough, you can't do it on your own, you need them. You must be beholden to them, you are to hang on to their every word and every promise and if the crops don't come, if you don’t prosper, give it another season and then another, just keep believing in and relying on...them!
No to false prophets and fake promises
No thank you, I choose freedom; I choose to take my chances with a free market system. It may let me down at times, but far more often, it works for me, for all of us.
I so cherish this great Republic...which shouldn't be so difficult to hold on to!
I will look to God, not Gov, for my needs.
I don't want a handout.
I don't want what it is you're promising me, in order for you to have power and control over me.
I've been warned of the likes of you, my entire life!
It's high time we start reflecting on just what it is that we have here and stop taking it for granted.
We must stop with this eagerness to give it all up so easily to failed policies, false prophets and fake promises.
Freedom baby, precious freedom!
