by Jeffrey M. Gresio:
America – A nation forged out of the idea that God made all men to be free. A radical idea in its day. Apparently, according to the Progressive Communist Left, a radical idea today.
America the British Colony – was a territory ruled by a tyrannical monarchy that only wished to bleed the colonists of their wealth and labor for the benefit of the crown. Crushed by heavy tariffs and taxes, oppressive laws and little or no liberty or freedom to voice objection, a rebellious few decided enough was enough.
They looked to God and then to themselves for an answer. It was the Word of God that they used for a blueprint to define what it meant to be free; to have liberty and be afforded the right to pursue happiness without obstruction.
The idea that man should have the right to govern himself; and that government, a necessary evil to maintain order and protection, should be the slave of the people it was created to serve and protect was revolutionary.
We have taken our rights and freedoms, that so many have died, bled and sacrificed for, for granted. We as a country, became complacent in maintaining, keeping and defending those rights. We got use to our government running roughshod over us. We had forgotten that those in Washington are not our leaders or keepers. And they did too. They are our representatives and servants.
At one time the world was ruled and run by tyrants. And sadly there are those today who would gladly like to see the world returned to those times.
The idea, for the America we know today, formed its first roots under the leaves of the Liberty Tree on the Common of Boston Massachusetts. A vision of those known as the Loyal Nine; who grew to be the Sons of Liberty. An idea and vision so powerful, men risked all they had and gave their very lives. They had a dream. The dream, idea and hope of freedom being for all men.
It wasn’t perfect at first. There had to be compromises and sacrifices made to get it off the ground. But here is the beauty of America. Given time, we face up to our mistakes and short comings. And Americans have proven time and again that they will sacrifice and die to make things right.
We do lose our way from time to time. But praise the God of heaven and earth, who always seems to give us the leader we need; when we need them most.
This country has survived Civil War, two world wars, the Great Depression, the civil right upheaval and movement of the 60s, the attacks of 9/11, and the dark age and days of Obama. And despite all that, we are the oldest, still intact, surviving government in the world.
Real America is still in the majority. When we band together, nothing has ever beaten us. No Red Communist, no White Squall and no Blue Snowflake Wave can defeat us. The truth has once again set us free and woken us up!
There are two things historically America loves, underdogs and winners. In President Trump we have both. And behind President Trump America has rallied. The Communist Left have never understood who we are as a nation and a people. And ultimately, it will be their down fall.
For most of America, we see beyond race, color, religion and sexual orientation. The true America I grew up in does judge a man by his character. It is a minority in this country who judge on the basis of the hatred within them and the blackness of their heart. Unfortunately it is the latter who get all the attention; and for that Democrats and the media are to blame. But make no mistake, we hold some responsibility too. We have allowed them to get away with it for far too long.
But no more, we like our forefathers have had enough. It is time to reclaim what is intrinsically ours. And under the leadership of President Trump we can do it, and have begun it. We are making America great again. And as we move forward we will keep America great.
We are again gaining pride in ourselves and our nation. We again see a future for ourselves and our children. We are again tasting economic freedom and believing in ourselves and our country.
We have awoken and are tearing the scales from our eyes. We now see the truth from the lies. We will not be slaves of our government or the Democrat Party. We are a free people. It’s our freedom! Not the governments. It’s the governments job to maintain our rights and freedoms. Our rights and freedoms are God given. The Constitution does not give us our rights and freedoms, it merely and simply defines them and gives us the means to secure them.
As Benjamin Franklin once said to a woman in the street who asked, “Well Doctor, do we have a monarchy or a republic?” To which he replied, “A Republic madame, if you can keep it.”
Freedom is ours if we can keep it. And too many have died for us to let it go.
Keep standing, keep fighting. It’s who we are and what we do. Without it, we are nothing.
