Since the beginning of recorded history, we have read about and learned of the struggle of man's desire to be free, to live his life as he wishes (without harming others), to pursue his own happiness, free from government control of his life, free from others who think they know best about how he should live. That struggle can properly be addressed as a civil war. Within our country it is not presently a shooting war, but a war never the less, between those of us desiring to be independently free and those who want to force us into the bondage of Socialism, a war between freedom and slavery, if you will. Socialism has always been nothing more than a sharing of misery. It has never been a sharing of prosperity, for in every nation on earth, past or present, the only people who prosper under Socialism are those in power.
That war has raged from Cain killing Abel to the present day and It will never end. Why? Because there will always be men trying to bend others to their will, to place them in slavery for their own gain. In a Socialist nation, the government leaders prosper while all others share in the misery. It will be taken from those who "can" and "do" and have earned much, and given to those who could but "won't" and "don't" and have earned little or nothing, resulting in all having little or nothing, a sharing of the misery. The natural human incentive to be competitively ambitious and to prosper will be die in the masses of people. This is a war in which there can be no neutrality. One must stand on one side or the other. It is a war, not necessarily between Republicans and Democrats, but two opposing ideals, one of freedom to make your own choices by your own decisions and live with the results. If the results are unsatisfactory to you, change them. The other, having no choices of your own with all decisions made for you by a central government and forced to live with the results, if being unsatisfactory, you can not change them. We have all witnessed this war reaching epic proportions in the United States within the past several years as on one side Barack Obama led, and is leading, the Socialist Army in an attempt to enslave you and me to the Federal government. Make no mistake about it, Barack Obama (he is not going away) and his socialist followers such as the Clintons, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, George Soros, Patrick Leahy, Elizabeth Warren, Corey Booker, just to name a few, since there are many more, still fully intend, and WILL turn the United States of America into the Socialist States of America unless they are stopped. The opposing Freedom Army in this struggle has for many years been fighting without a leader. The American people have grown sick and tired of the political insiders who play by their own rules and reap the benefits of them. Yes, we elect people to public office, but because the political and media establishments are so hopelessly corrupt, we have been losing our representative government that our founding fathers intended. Our elected officials are so indebted to their financial donors they don't dare represent you and me for fear of offending and upsetting their money train. Enters presidential candidate Donald Trump, the flamboyant, glitzy, arrogant, political correctness be damned, real-estate billionaire who is not indebted to any big money donor, scaring to death the bias media and Washington political party big shots with his, "I'm after your playhouse" attitude, whether you like it or not. The explosion of this populist revolt has and is creating an enormous enthusiasm and support for this strong and confident man of the people, not man of the powerful. I have no doubt that he spoke the words the silent majority yearned to speak. He, now as President Donald Trump and chosen leader of the Freedom Army, is taking the actions the silent majority hoped and believed he would take. I here share the frustration of Lawrence Sellin. "We are fed up with both political parties, who represent only themselves and are identical in their practice of crony capitalism, political expediency and lying: all used to solely increase their own personal power and profit and that of their wealthy donors at the expense of the American people and well being of the country. We are fed up with main stream media outlets that are nothing more than propaganda machines for the Democrat Party and the Republican establishment using disinformation and manipulation in a fashion comparable with Soviet-run journalism, collaborators in perpetuating a corrupt status quo." "The establishment is beside itself, dumbfounded, mouth agape trying to decipher the appeal of President Donald Trump to the masses of American people. I submit to you it is because they, the establishment, are completely separated from the people and divorced from the real America. Why do you suppose the establishment is trying to destroy President Donald Trump? It is precisely because that which the establishment fears and doesn't understand, it seeks to destroy. "Like Lexington and Concord, President Donald Trump has provided a spark and a rally point for the American people to regain control of their government. If Donald Trump didn't exist, he would have to be invented." As I have quoted before, "if we must die, let us stand tall and die on our feet fighting, and not on our knees in subjugation." We must rededicate ourselves to the proposition that this is a country of Individual Freedom and a Free Market Enterprise, and be devoted to our Representative Constitutional Republic, and strengthen our resolve to keep it by winning this battle for the hearts and minds of men and women all across this nation against Socialism. We MUST hang on to our way of life and our Constitutional Republic with every fabric of our being. We MUST, being led by President Trump, return to the limited powers of government according to the United States Constitution. We MUST continue to resist those who want the government to become our master and we the slaves if we are to remain free individuals, making our own decisions and being responsible for ourselves. Our founding fathers won their battles and extended freedom to us. It is now our responsibility to keep it. The Socialist forces will not give our country back without a fight. We are in a life or death struggle for Individual Freedom. We must support our leader President Trump, for the United States Constitution will become nothing more than a tiny heap of shredded paper if we fail to do so. Never doubt, we can become slaves to the government as well as a plantation owner. The choice is ours, make yours now or forever hold your peace.
