Our Founding Fathers forged this nation with blood, sweat, and tears.  Many of them gave the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives.  The founding of this nation was not for the faint of heart.  Our Founding Fathers did not found this country because of the desire for greed and power, as the leftists say, but they founded this nation for the cause to live, work, and die as free Americans.  They wanted to be free from the oppressive hand of Mother England.  England was smothering the colonies both spiritually and physically.  There was a great deal of debate and soul-searching before our Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. Josiah Quincy, who was a great American orator for freedom during this time, said, “Blandishments will not fascinate us, nor will threats of a ‘halter’ intimidate.  For, under God, we are determined that wheresoever, whensoever, or howsoever, we shall be called to make our exit, we will die as free men.”

The Fallen Morals of Congress PDF Print E-mail

The Bible says in Psalm 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.”  (King James Bible)  The Bible also says in Proverbs 14:34, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”  (King James Bible)

No longer are the halls of Congress filled with men of high moral character.  Yes, we still have many people in Congress who have good moral character, but this number is quickly dwindling.  It is heartbreaking to hear about those in Congress who were elected by the people of this country who have become moral failures.  Many of our Founding Fathers were remarkable leaders because of their love for Jesus, family, and country.  They were selfless servants of the people.  But today many of those elected to Congress have become selfish masters of the people.

Samuel Adams was known as the “Father of the American Revolution.”  Adams was an early American leader and patriot for the cause of liberty in this country.  He was the instigator of the Boston Tea Party.  Adams was a signer of the Declaration of Independence and served as a member of congress until 1781.  He formed the Committee of Correspondence that was responsible to keep the colonists united, and to keep them informed concerning the violated rights they were suffering under the British.  Adams served as Lieutenant Governor and Governor of Massachusetts. (Ted Kennedy and company would have been run out of town on a rail in those days.)

While our country is playing Father-may-I with President Obama, Pakistan is like dynamite ready to explode.  Pakistan has become a very urgent national security issue for our country.  The Pakistani government under the leadership of Asif Ali Zardari is trying to seek peace with the Taliban through appeasement.  The Taliban sees appeasement as weakness that it will gladly exploit to promote its evil rule.  The Taliban is making tremendous inroads into Pakistan and is exerting its influence on the government.  Already the Zardari government has capitulated the Swat valley only one hundred miles from the capital of Islamabad to the Taliban in return for peace.  The Taliban agreed to this peace accord and then violated its terms and launched another attack against the district of Buner only sixty miles from Islamabad.

Disarming the American People PDF Print E-mail

The Second Amendment in our Constitution says, “A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Obama, Reid, and Pelosi want to take our guns.  Nancy (Jezebel) Pelosi, the U.S. House Speaker, has recently started a public media campaign to register guns that have not been registered by their owners.  Pelosi said in one of her kick-off media anti-gun episodes, “We don’t want to take their guns away. We want them registered.”  This is nothing but political camouflaged propaganda to take the guns from the American people.  Pelosi’s objective is for Americans to register their guns today so Obama and company can confiscate them tomorrow.  Gun control has its roots in Communism and Nazism.  These tyrannical groups know that a defenseless people is an enslaved people.  Communist dictators throughout the world could not have committed the atrocities they did if they had not disarmed the people first.
