The REVOLUTIONARY WAR: Who were the people who revolted?
Religious bigots? Greedy merchants? Lazy or bored aristocracy?
The time is quickly approaching when the line will have to be drawn in the sand. When the American people will have to choose whether America will continue to be a Democratic Republic or allow the liberals to take us into Socialism. It is a choice similar to that which was made by the Founding Fathers. They came to the conclusion that the offenses perpetrated against the fledgling colony were grounds for Revolution. They tried diplomacy without success. They reached a breaking point. “This much, and NO MORE!”
Today, WE THE PEOPLE are approaching a similar breaking point. We must decide what kind of nation we want to be.
CITIZENSHIP is a Privilege!
This is America, home of the brave and land of the FREE. Dissent is welcome within the reasonable boundaries of the US Constitution. ALL elected officials and the military promise to “support and defend” our Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic!” “Federal law requires everyone who enlists or re-enlists in the Armed Forces of the United States to take the enlistment oath. The oath of enlistment into the United States Armed Forces is administered by any commissioned officer to any person enlisting or re-enlisting for a term of service into any branch of the military. The officer asks the person, or persons, to raise their right hand and repeat the oath after him. The oath is traditionally performed in front of the United States Flag and other flags, such as the state flag, military branch flag, and unit guidon may be present.” This oath includes terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, the Taliban and al-Qaida.
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
How many times does this OATH need to be broken before WE THE PEOPLE hold the guilty accountable? Check the dates on the articles listed in the related reading section below as an example. These are articles that demonstrate just a few of the questionable tactics of the administration. The first one posted here is dated March 27, 2009!!!!! This is, um, how long after Obama took office?
For too long, too many good, hard-working Americans have been un-interested, un-involved, and basically apathetic concerning elected officials! VOTING is a responsibility of citizenship! It helps to keep the elected officials on their toes – keep them REPRESENTING the people that put them there. If WE THE PEOPLE don’t demonstrate our convictions, how will our Representatives know where we stand? Perhaps Citizenship should be made rescindable if unmaintained! Seems fair. If an individual freely chooses NOT to live up to his or her responsibility as a citizen, why should they be able to retain the accompanying rights? The same applies to various dependency programs. If an individual (who is able to work) chooses NOT to work, he or she forfeits the right to receive gov’t assistance. These are Biblical principles, but no less part of other major religions.
What does it mean to be a Citizen of the USA?
The BILL OF RIGHTS
belongs to each and every citizen EQUALLY!
to uphold and defend the same CONSTITUTION
also belongs to each and every citizen EQUALLY.
Those who choose to live in the USA illegally, are excluded from all but the most basic of these rights. Though we count these basic rights as “endowed by our Creator,” they do not include free meals, education, and medical care for years outside of citizenship.
MY POINT: WE THE PEOPLE must make a choice.
Yes, it really IS that simple!
