America the great.....
America the free, America the great. but for how long? I don't know. Everyday the government expands it powers, and takes a little more away from us as law abiding citizens. They do this in the name of equality, you know, for the little guy. For the poor, the impoverished, the neglected and left behind. Now, it would be nice if everyone were truly equal, and everyone had food and medicine, and we all gathered around campfires and truly got along.
Notice the word truly.....because that is the clincher. No matter how hard the government tries, i will never view a terrorist as my equal. i will never view them as having rights. I will never view a child raping kidnapper as my equal. these people, along with many others, are beneath me. They do not deserve my time, well, no mre time than to put a bullt in their head or watch them hang from a gallows, but thats antoher story. And as the government tries to convince me that these people deserve a second chance, blah blah blah, whatever the left wngnuts wanna call it, it makes me hatye them even more. And thats what the government does not understand. People hate each other. For whatever reason. People hate. The world is full of it. I hate terrorists. I hate people who harm children, take advantage of the elderly, and commit crimes beacause they can. these people do not deserve rights, nor do they deserve a second chance. the liberal government beleives that by making laws forcing people to be nicer to each other is gonna work. It won't. Now, I do not beleive in racism, anti semitism, etc. And if you do, you are a moron, and you are not an american in my opinion. Yep, i said it. get over it. if you hate someone for any other reason other than the kind of person they are, you are stupid. And you are part of the problem, not the solution. Our soldiers have spilled blood all over the world to defend against racism, genocide, ethnic cleansing, etc. And if you proliferate the very things American sons died fighting against, then you are defiling their service and spitting on their memory. Now, that being said, all the above is my opinion. And as much as i think neo nazis, the KKK, the black panthers etc, are a bunch of douchebags, as an American, I cannot forcibly impose my opinion on them. i have to allow them the right to be douchebags. as much as I hate it, it's in the bill of rights. And that's what the government needs to remember. As stupid as it sounds, people have to be allowed to hate each other. So Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and all you liberal douchebags, I HATE YOU. And that is my right. So screw you and your utopian society. I don't want it. I wanna hate people. I want to allow Nazis to PEACEABLY gather and protest. I want Black Panthers to stand shouting on the street corners. I want the media to say whatever truth they wish. You know why? Beacause I am an American, and that's America. You have no right to change that.
But they feel they do. Everyday, i read the paper or watch the news, and a new form of government control is on the horizon. FDA control of tobbacco. Nothing like singling out one of the oldest industries in america, the last stalwart of the Great American capitalistic sytem, and putting it under government control. Way to go! And, let us not forget the upcoming snack food tax. Now, they're not going to come out and ban sugary foods because they want control over your diet, that would raise too many eyebrows. So they'll just backdoor us, and tax it. If it's bad for you, we'll just throw a tax on it, and then you'll by healthier stuff. Can anyone say Nanny State? If I want to smoke, and eat Cheetos, and drink Mountain Dew all day, that is my right as an American. It says so too. The pursuit of Happiness. the pursit, not right to happiness. Now in 30 years, when i'm dying of Diabetes and Heart disease, i'll kick myself in the ***, but that was my pursuit. it was my right. and it is also my right to not have health insurance. While i certainly will not go one day without insurance for my family, it is my right to not have it. It does not directly affect anyone else if I don't have health insurance. It is my right to be stupid. So let me be. Again I say, Nanny State.
America is slowly bleeding to death. The freedoms we have are the blood in our great country's veins. Every law they pass to pander to the liberal mindset is just another wound to our freedoms. We need to understand that we are standing on a precupice, looking down into a great unknown, a place that this country has never been. Gone are the days of self reliance, the days of the good old american can do attitude. We are becoming a cess pool of pseudo socialist cowards. Oh no, we can't upset anyone, or cause anyone injustice. Boo Hoo. Life isn't fair. Deal with it.
I fear for the world my children will grow up in. I fear that America, the country that I love, will be a mere shell of its former self. America is the last stand, the last free country on earth. Is this America's sunset? Are my children going to grow up in a place that tells them what to eat, wear and learn about? If you think this cannot happen, you are a fool. A dangerous fool. America is not kept free on it's own. It takes constant vigalance, a sharp eye on the times. And these are dangerous times my friend. We are in debt as a nation like we have never seen before. And that debt is rising on a daily basis. We are in danger of losing our rights as Americans.
Will my son be able to speak out against big Brother as I am now? Will he make his own decisions on how to raise his children? To decide what is best for his family? I fear he will not. Unless we do something. The assault on our rights has already begun. Everyday we lose more and more, not just to the feds, but to our local governments as well. One day we will have to explain to our children why we stood idly by and let them take our freedom. Stalin, Hitler, Castro, Kim Jong Il, Hugo Chavez all took power under the same ruse. The ruse of government knows what's best for you. They all had a vision for their country, and it is much the same vision that the liberals have. In order to help people, you have to have a certain amount of control over them. And that is what they are doing. "Helping" us.
I close this rant with a few thoughts. If you don't love america for what it is, leave. If you want things to all be equal, talk to a former Soviet citizen. They'll school you real quick like. If you don't like guns, don't own one. Simple as that. Don't tell me I can't or shouldn't. Mind your own damn business. Don't meddle in my life. If you think i am doing something wrong or unhealthy, tell me what i'm doing, and ill consider it. But don't try and force me to conform, remember I own guns. If you want to hate, hate. If you want to love, love. That is your right. If you want to change the world I live in, don't take away my rights. It's not just my rights your taking away, it's my children's rights. And no one is worth defending more than my children. I would lay down my life for only a few things, my country, my family, and my children. And right now, you're messing with all of them. Don't tread on me, I may bite you. God bless America.
