“I’d like to say that I’m a patriot, but it’s hard to love my country when it is the way it is. Stay out of my business, my money, and get your dirty rotten hands out of my BIBLE (“gay marriage”). Everyone deserves all of the things mentioned above, and when nobody does get these things, the true patriots won’t put up with it. Tyranny is going down.”

I would suggest you don’t tread on me if you know what’s good for you.

Hast Thou Forgotten?

Hast thou forgotten the first and most important amendment to the Constitution? Hast thou forgotten what the words of this amendment mean? Hast thou forgotten the reason for this very amendment? Apparently, the anti-first amendment group “Freedom from religion” hast forgotten or does not want to acknowledge what the amendment really states. These people believe that we as Americans have a right in which we can keep people from talking about what they believe in. An article from a news website should explain the situation. It can be found here http://foxnewsinsider.com/2013/06/06/roy-costner-iv-south-carolina-valedictorian-rips-speech-and-recites-lord%E2%80%99s-prayer .

So, according to these anti-first amendment ignorant bigots, we the people have a right to suppress what someone is saying simply because it may offend us. In fact, it is the exact opposite. You see, we the citizens of the United States of America have a right to say exactly what we want to say whenever we want to say it. We don’t have to have permission from anyone to say anything that we want. This whole incident is just an example of how backwards this country has become. Thankfully, this kid was in a place that still has some idea of our American values and did not punish this young man. I would call him brave, but the real glory belongs to the Lord for putting such a brilliant kid on this earth to remind us of where we come from, for those of us who need to be reminded.

I am calling BS on the whole “Freedom from religion” group’s attempt to defend what they are doing here by saying, “The valedictorian who so insensitively inflicted Christian prayer on a captive  audience at a secular graduation ceremony, is a product of a school district  which itself set an unconstitutional example by hosting school board prayer,”

First of all, this kid “inflicted Christian prayer on a captive audience”? No, did each and every person in that room not have a right to leave the room whenever they wanted? Yes, they could have left the room, therefore these words were not “inflicted” on anyone, and nobody at this place was a “captive”. This kid had a right to say these words, period. Could he have faced disciplinary action from the school from breaking their rule? Yes. Did the school have a right to infringe upon this kid’s rights by making this rule? Not in my eyes. Did the school have a right to keep this kid from saying what he was saying? No.

I think Toby Keith says it all in his song “American Ride”. Check it out while you keep calm and do work.

 

Rick Scott Screws Up Again.

Tuesday, May 28, Florida Governor Rick Scott signs into law a new law making texting while driving a secondary criminal offense. Many advocates of the new law say, “It’s a step in the right direction, but it will be very hard to enforce.” That’s exactly right, tyranny is very hard to enforce in a free society. The government regulating what the individual does in their property (their car), with their property (their phone), and on their property (the roads). You see, many people say that the government owns the roads so we should submit to any laws they decide to enact against the people who use them. The question is, who owns the government. The answer is, we the taxpayers own the government. Without we the taxpayers, there would be no government. Many people also say that we pay the government to keep us safe. In fact, we should be paying the government to keep and maintain our rights. If protecting our rights means fighting an enemy either foreign or domestic, then, and only then do we need the government to protect us, and by government I don’t mean dirty politicians who only have interest in protecting themselves, but I mean the men who work for the government to keep the American people free. So, even though some may think that this law is protecting us, you have to think about whether you want to stay safe or stay free, because if we allow the government to get away with little acts of tyranny like this law, then they will eventually want to move up to bigger things like nightly curfews on the roads so that people with night blindness will not be able to hurt anyone else while driving at night.

You have to ask yourself these same questions when it comes to terrorism as well, and many people have already decided to give up many of their rights to privacy in order to fight terrorism. When you think about it, wouldn’t it be easy for tyranny to come upon us by people using the fear of Americans to advance their own agenda by influencing or orchestrating attacks against our country? I’m not trying to become a conspiracy theorist here, but I am asking a legitimate question. Think about this the next time your government makes a law that they say will “keep you safer”.

Think about this while you keep calm and do work.

What Is Freedom?

Freedom is a great idea. Freedom, believe it or not does involve control. Freedom involves control by the people over their government. When things start getting twisted the other way around is when we lose our freedom. If you think about it, does freedom involve a lot of rules? No, it does not, yet when you ask for bigger government, that means  that you want government to intervene in something. When government intervenes in something, it always ends up with more rules than before. Therefore, bigger government means less freedom. The next time you talk to a liberal, ask them why they want less freedom in America, because I really want to know.

I believe that freedom must involve responsibility. If someone is responsible, they take care of themselves. When you have a bunch of people who work hard and make money to take care of themselves and their families, but you also have people who take advantage of other people’s hard work by gathering entitlements which are paid for by the hard-working man  or woman then you essentially have hard-working people being enslaved by the leeches as I like to call them. This is not freedom for the working man. People say that the rich are evil because they take people’s money. The rich don’t take people’s money, they earn people’s money. When a rich person makes money, it was that person’s choice to give them that money whether it be for an item sold by a business or something else. When a person on entitlements gets someone else’s money, that money was taken through taxes, that money was not earned. Who is evil now? All of this is what freedom is not.

Freedom is an individual’s right to work and make money and spend that money however they want. Freedom is every person paying a very small portion of that money that they earn to a small government whose only job is to serve the people and guarantee that the people’s rights are kept, because a person’s rights are sacred. A person’s rights are their freedom. A person’s rights are not to be infringed upon. A person’s rights can’t be taken, only given up, therefore freedom can not be taken, only given up. In the case that someone is trying to take away your rights, what should you do? Resist the control. Keep calm and do work.

I leave you tonight with a few words of widom. If your life is hard work, you’re doing something right.
