Why The Good Fight

So, I get asked, often, “Why do you fight”?  Just go along with the flow!  Well, I have seen too much go along to get along in my lifetime to realize that ALL that that does is cost freedom.  There was once a time that the fight for principle was called “the good fight”.  Now, everyone seems to think that we should Rodney King our way through life.

Now, there is an apathetic way to look at things.  I have built buildings for people that were originally from behind the “Iron Curtain”.  I’m talking two (2) decades ago.  They were saying, I’m not just referring to one individual but many, “this Country is more like Russia than Russia”, yes they all called it Russia and not the Soviet Union.

I look at those in my family and sometimes I wonder what would have happened if they were the “Founding Fathers”.  It doesn’t just stop there.  I look at “what” we have elected as “our leaders” and am most assuredly positive that we would still be under the thumb of the crown.

Only God know where the strength of this country has fallen.  Only God knows when it will arise with the strength of our ancestors.  They gave their fortunes for freedom!  Some, their children for freedom!  Today, just go along to get along!  God knows this country needs to be slapped good and hard.  A wake up call.   A call to arms.  A call to voices.  A call to Freedom.

The start of weakness…under Reagan…not really noticed, not really thought of as a downfall.  Some mother, God bless her, lost her son in a pugil stick joust during basic training, I think in 1983.  She went ballistic!  How dare the marines do this to HER son.  Well, they stopped.  At least for a while.  They have the pugil stick again in basic training but not as it was pre 1983.

Now days 320lb offensive linemen are too weak to defend themselves…the audacity of name calling!!!   Now days a young child cannot “draw” a picture of a ninja with his sword without being offensive.  When I was growing up it was “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”  Now days God is offensive, pointing your finger is offensive, tee shirts that do not conform (no more individualism) are offensive, being called out on facts is offensive, and if you do not go along to get along you are offensive.

I said it to a group of subcontractor on a project in Las Vegas on December 9, 2008 and I say it again here, now.  We have become weak, as a nation in Body, Mind and Heart.  God help us now.  Time is running out.  Freedom is wearing thin.  Stand up for the Individual!  Forget about the “Collective”.  This Nation needs a “Re-Birth” and soon.  GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!




Does Anyone Really Understand an Oath

Well, I have listened to many politicians over the years.  I have watched their swearing into office.  I have read the Oath of Office that each and every one of them have taken, yet I am truly befuddled!!  I want each and everyone that reads this to understand that the President, Senators and Congressmen/women do not take the same oath that the military does.  Both oaths, however, do start out the same way.  “I (insert name) swear to support and defend “The Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”.  Now, I know what a promise is, but apparently most of our politicians do not.  I listen to many of them say what they took an oath to defend but they all seem to get it wrong.

I am going to pick on Congressman Michael Rogers (Michigan 8th Congressional District) at this time.  I listened to him on Fox News (surprise surprise) during an interview regarding the NSA and the two programs that they have “spying” on the American People.  During the interview he said ‘I took an oath to defend America’ (please read above).  Congressmen and Congresswomen, Senators, Vice Presidents and Presidents take an oath to Defend the Document that this Country was and is supposed to be founded upon.  They do not seem to understand this premise.  Not the borders, not the States, not their pet projects, not God, Jesus, Buddha, not Muhammad, Allah or satan.  The document that guarantees men and women the freedoms that our Founding Fathers had intended for this country.

This Country was founded upon Christian Values (like it or not that is the truth), the promise of the ability to pursue your dreams (no guarantee that you will attain them) and freedom from tyranny.  We appear to be losing on all fronts.  All politicians need to reread their oath of office and start complying with the same.  If not get out of the way and let those of us that know how get in the game.
