This is about Liberty

May 17, 2010

I’ve said it before, and I will continue to speak and write it until they impose “net neutrality” and shut down this blog…and then I’ll go samizdat.

This fall is a referendum on liberty. The left has most notoriously shoved health care legislation down our throats, but they have done much more besides. Most of it is happening not in the Congress, but behind the scenes in the administration; This is Snowden’s secret. We must elect a conservative Congress, but will they have the nerve, the insight, the will to put a stop to the radicals in the administration, which will continue to move ahead at full speed?

My friend Jeff Wright puts it this way:

The nation will turn from the blue and red to the “red, white and blue” again.  Red is valor, white is peace and blue is liberty. I’m sick to death of the red or the blue political nation. Neither of those positions deals in truth, only different distortions of it.

I have a friend in the UK who feels exactly the same way. Regarding the recent election, he says of the parties,

all of them are left, right, centre according to what and who their audience of the day is.

It is our job as citizens in 2010 to elect not parties, but persons; not party faithful, but those faithful to the Constitution; not career politicians, but career citizens. This struggle will not be over on November 3rd; it will only have begun. Our goal is clear: in the words of Abraham Lincoln:

that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Onward, for Liberty!

    I always love it when I have to pull out the dictionary and/or learn a new word. samizdat is the word of the day.

    Thanks

      Ha-ha! In my defense I must say I included a hyperlink to the Wikipedia article on samizdat. 🙂

      How soon we forget the evils of communism only 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Although in your case, I’m sure you’re just too young to remember.
