Today, Wednesday, the United States of America has turned 236-years-old, another birthday, another July 4th, another Independence Day. This very special day in which thirteen original British colonies via fifty-six representing signers put their very all on the line, including even their lives to not only stand up to a king but to throw off the king’s tyranny.
Over the last few years, since Barack Hussein Obama was elected President of the United States of America in November 2008, I have begun to wonder if these same United States is dealing with a new form of tyranny. Safe to say, we are dealing right now with what conservative talk radio show host Mark Levin would call “soft tyranny”. This soft tyranny takes the form of not only a federal government which is spending money like there is no tomorrow, but also now that the United States Supreme court has ruled that the “Affordable Care Act“ is constitutional, the United States federal government has also become out-of-control.
During the past few weeks, I have taken part in a special two weeks of prayer for freedom, called “The Fortnight For Freedom”, which is a period which takes place for two weeks in the Roman Catholic Church in the United Sates. Prayers, teachings, and special events going on and around the country in a number of Catholic parishes as a reminder of this precious gift of what is called “the first freedom”, freedom of religion and conscious which is protected under the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution. The United States federal government has been taking on the Roman Catholic Church in the United States on the issue of both “birth control” and even worse, “abortion”, both which the Church opposes. What the United States federal department of Health and Human Services is trying to do is not just WRONG but simply EVIL to push the Church to do what is against its teachings. To have the HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius promote to those who work for any Roman Catholic owned or run institutions of any type, be they educational, medical, or even a parish office; to make as a requirement to provide both birth control and abortion to their employees, while KNOWING it is against the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church is simply AN ATTACK of the Church itself.
What has been going on should be a reminder to the other faith communities that if the United States federal government can attack the Roman Catholic Church, then other faith communities could also experience attacks coming from this same United States federal government.
Add to that, what the United States of America’s Supreme Court, under the head of the Chief Justice head John Roberts who with four other Supreme Court justices in ruling last week 5-4 for Obamacare was simply nothing short than DISGRACEFUL. Your honor, Chief Justice Roberts, when the history of this bad Supreme Court decision is written, both the history writers and history itself will not view you in a too kind light Chief Justice Roberts.
I know last week I was left very, very angry over that decision which left a very bitter taste in my mouth.
This is why this year’s upcoming United States Presidential elections is going to be very, very important in order to bring back any sense of sanity to the need to “right-size” the federal government. Not just “right-size” the government, but also elect those people who will do the right thing and keep the best interests of the United States of America to mind and heart. It WILL BE VERY IMPORTANT to “elect people of principle” to take on this very important task to save and rebuild this country this coming November and beyond.
Last night, after I had come home from the last night of the special two weeks gathering for the “fortnight for freedom over at St. Paul’s Roman Catholic Church in Glastonbury, Connecticut, USA, candlelight vigil which included both the praying of the patriotic rosary and eucharistic adoration, I had the opportunity to view a video that was filmed a few days ago in Elk Grove Village, IL, USA at a town hall meeting that was presented by a United States House of Representatives person who I have both respect and admiration for.
Also this is a time that the United States of America is going through what I call and what a United States of America House of Representative by the name of Rep. Joe Walsh, (R/IL), has said that “your country that you love is going through a revolution to save its very soul”. Give him credit that he is a “Tea Party conservative first” and a Republican second.” These words come from a true great American patriot. He also brings in the need for those who were there and had taken the time to listen to his message to be “prepared to go to jail” in order to stand up for FREEDOM.
Getting back to remembering those fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence, they too knew that they were going to have to take the risks in order to defend the FREEDOM that comes with the then newborn nation of the United States of America.
Today, as we take the time to honor and celebrate the independence of the United States of America, let us become GREAT AMERICAN PATRIOTS and stand up for the FREEDOM that is America’s birthright.
Happy 236th Birthday United States of America And God Bless!
“Rep. Joe Walsh of Illinois, who boasts that he is a “Tea Party conservative first…and a Republican second,” was emotional and animated in front a packed house of 350 at a town hall meeting this afternoon in northwest suburban Elk Grove Village.
I’ve attended enough of these meetings to know that it’s best to start with the speaker’s conclusion–the ideas of the meeting our usually summarized nicely at the end of it. So it was with Walsh today.
He reprised the theme of being “prepared to go to jail” to defend freedom in our country, which was the heart of a speech he made in March.
“The subject of this town hall was ‘What are you prepared to do?,'” Walsh repeated to the audience.
“But I think when you say, when you ask, are you prepared to go to jail, we understand what that means,” Walsh said. “You’re a small business owner who is trying to make a go of it, make a living, and provide for your family, and you have a government–especially if you live in Illinois–which is taxing and regulating you out of existence. Are you prepared to go to jail to defend your right to keep your money and to make a prosperous life for yourself?”
Cries of ‘Yes’ followed.
He asked the same questions of mothers, doctors, and religious believers.
As for the turnout, Walsh mused, “I hope, I really hope this means that the sleeping giant has woken up again.”
In regards to the fall elections, Walsh said, “I think if we don’t get November right, I don’t think we’ll ever recover.”
He quickly added, “Your country that you love is going through a revolution to save its very soul.”
As for the tempestuous atmosphere in Washington, “If you’re tired of us fighting in Washington…”
“Tough,” he added after a pause.”
