Does America STILL Have the Courage to Stand?

Does America STILL Have the Courage to Stand?

Let me ask you ALL a question; should Obama win the day and continue with another 4 years in which he will completely destroy America if allowed; do We, THE PEOPLE have the courage to make this stand again?

In Congress July 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the
thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

All you have to do is replace a word or 2 here and there and this ALL applies to what America is facing today.

WHO will stand for America now?

Why is MY signature there in the center? So bold and bright?

Because I loved the reasoning used by John Hancock in his signing and I don’t want Obama or his minions to miss it when they read this post!

    Well I would have to think about it for a minute or two Fred.
    Let’s Rock and Roll it’s time to go!

  2. James Shott says:

    I believe we have the courage.

    I question whether we have the sense.

  3. capitalisa says:

    We have the courage. We have the sense. I will stand.

  4. Cary says:

    Courage? Yes. Will? Right after the voting for American idol or Dancing with the Stars is over … wait, gotta see what the results are …

    And that’s the problem. The country is not being faced with the issues, we are more worried about who’s going to win the votes this week on the latest “reality” show.

    Wake the hell up, America. Turn off your TVs and tune into the REAL world – the one right outside your door, that is being turned into a third world trash heap by politicians pretending that failed policies from other parts of the world will work here.

    Because, you know, the only reason it didn’t work before is because the right people weren’t in charge …

    My answer;
    I know a mess of folks in Va. ( VCDL’s ) very few here in Colo., except in the high country, almost no one in the greater New England area. Most are content to let the world go by as they muddle through.

    As for myself, locked and loaded.

  6. Robert says:

    Short answer is: YES We do have the courage. Long answer is: YES- But:
    But not until the pain is so bad we have no choice:
    But not until our xboxes are no longer available.
    But not until our internet is shut off.
    But not until our houses are invaded.
    But not until our guns are taken.
    But not until our freedom of speech is removed.
    But not until our children are starving.

    Basically Fred, things are going to have to get so bad even the state run media can’t spin it as good news. Until then, we’ll keep treading water as the sharks circle.

  7. Longstreet says:

    I don’t think we do (as a country) anymore, Fred. How else to explain the election of Obama AND his reelection?

    JDL

  8. extex_cop says:

    When the time comes I will stand shoulder to shoulder with all my fellow Patriots to fight and even die if needed to take back America and make it as GREAT as it once was.
    GOD Bless America !!!!!

  9. When the original revolution began it was a small minority that wanted to fight. For all of our problems I believe that we would have enough loyal patriots to get the ball rolling. However, I also believe that the United States will not be as it was before. Probably split into three or four smaller nations… And yes, it will indeed be a very bloody affair.

    Took an oath in Feb 1966 to defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. Spent two years fighting Communists in Vietnam. Will not allow my grandchildren to be governed by the same. Haven’t been buying guns and ammo for nothing. My belief is that the 2nd Ammendment was designed to enable the population to defend itself from a tyranical govt, of which this country is close to having. Word to the wise.

  11. Rich T says:

    It doesn’t matter if obama or rommney wins. Rommney is just a white obama. Cut from the same cloth.

  12. NativeSon says:

    Short answer to your original question: NO!

    Not that I don’t or won’t…you asked, “Does America…?” I just don’t believe enough of us do.

    • TexasFred says:

      And that my friend is exactly what I am asking..

      I know that you and I do, I know that most of my readers do, or have said they do, but America is too big for a small handful of PATRIOTS to take over and run…

      I honestly believe that America, as a whole, does not and never will again.

      As BZ is so fond of saying, ‘it’s the FREE CHEESE’, and as long as the masses have their ‘cheese’, it’s all good..
