Time to Take a Stand

The President stood in front of a room full of Hollywood elites the other day and proclaimed that his stimulus spending was showing progress, that we were coming back from the brink, and that, in his words, “You ain’t seen nothing yet!” Knowing what I know about the man and his plans, I believe him. We ain’t seen nothing yet. Based on what we’ve already seen, this statement scares me to death.

The Senate is about to consider a replacement judge for the retiring Justice Suiter. As expected, President Obama has selected a woman cut from the same extreme liberal cloth he was cut from. The mainstream media is all in a tizzy about this nomination and are doing everything possible to hide her most shining accomplishments lest they give fodder to the right. They know that from day one she will violate her oath to uphold the Constitution by bringing “empathy” to the court. Empathy is a code word for legislating from the bench, a practice strictly prohibited throughout the Constitution. But, then, to the President and the left wing, the Constitution is just a document written in a different time that no longer applies in this day and age.

The Obama administration has already warned, or should I say threatened, the opposition to choose their criticisms of Ms. Sotomayor carefully. Of course, all the unfair comments and tactics used for the Alito and Roberts confirmations have been forgotten by the left. They’ve always been a “do as I say, not as I do” party. What I don’t understand is why they’re even worried. With their majority in the Senate and so many spineless Republicans, she should be a shoe-in for confirmation. God help us if she does get in and is followed up by a couple more left wing extremist judges before Obama is sent packing.

And this is just the tip of the Obama iceberg. Under the surface are the destruction of the banking industry, socialization of medicine, and the takeover of the auto industry. Spending is completely and totally out of control, to the point where the value of the dollar is plummeting to new lows around the world.

The President himself has admitted that the money being printed to cover all of his programs has nothing backing it. In other words, the Treasury Department is printing worthless pieces of paper and telling us its money. It’s like our government has a super platinum credit card with no limits, backed by the Bank of Monopoly. When will they realize that this is America they’re dealing with, not some meaningless game of chance?

Frankly, I’m tired of the present state of idiocy in DC. I’m tired of watching our liberties being taken away piece by piece. I’m sick and tired or the Apologizer-in-Chief running around to our enemies, telling them just how bad we’ve been, shaking hands with despots and tyrants, and offering the palm branch to those that won’t be happy until we’re all dead. I’m tired of the un-American and unpatriotic attitudes of this administration. And I’m tired of their relentless attacks on the Constitution and Christianity. It’s time to take a stand! It’s time to save America from ruin!

Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, has aptly labeled me a right-wing extremist because I’m retired military, I believe in freedom of speech, I believe in the right to bear arms, I’m a Christian, and I listen to Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. If the shoe fits, then I really don’t have a problem with that label.

May I also throw in that I’m fanatically patriotic and willing to die for the sake of retaining the freedoms we all know and love. I’ve lived in freedom and spent over twenty years of my life defending it, and refuse to let it be taken away from me. I will not live under a socialist, elected or not. Will you?

It’s time to take a stand against the un-American and unpatriotic, anti-liberty tyrants that are in DC. It’s time to let them know that we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it any more. Together, we can do it. Together, we can get America back on the right track and save it from ruin. And we can do it without firing a shot, without violence of any kind, because I believe we have the numbers. And the numbers are growing with every new legislation, every new tax, every new foreclosure, every new job loss, every new government takeover, and every new apology.

Our biggest opportunity to get the message to Washington and every liberal statehouse is the 2010 elections. We must organize, strategize, and help others realize there are ways to oust these tyrants. They’re betting that we’re just going to lie down and take it. Let’s prove them wrong. Let’s prove to them, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we’re Americans!
