If Only...

“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.” -John Quincy Adams

Social Justice?

"Let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well then tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you – and why?" – Walter Williams

Visitor From The Past

Visitor From The Past by Thelen Paulk

I had a dream the other night I didn't understand.

A figure walking through the mist with a flintlock in his hand.

His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by my bed.

He took off his three cornered hat and speaking low, he said:

We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty.

We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny.

For future generations, this legacy we gave,

in this, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun.

Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one.

On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent.

Although you have no voice in choosing, how the money's spent.

Your children must attend a school that doesn't educate.

Your Christian values can't be taught, according to the state.

You read about the current news in a regulated press.

You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the foreign I.R.S.

Your money is no longer made of silver, or of gold.

You trade your wealth for paper, so your lives can be controlled.

You pay for crimes that make our Nation turn from God in shame.

You've taken Satan's number, as you've traded in your name.

You've given government control, to those who do you harm,

So they can padlock churches, and steal the family farm.

And keep our country deep in debt, put men of God in jail.

Harass your fellow countrymen, while corrupted courts prevail.

Your public servants don't uphold the solemn oath they've sworn.

They defy and rape the nation, and leave it's fabric tattered and torn.

Your leaders ship artillery and guns to foreign shores.

And send your sons to slaughter, fighting other people's wars.

Can you regain the freedom for which we fought and died?

Or don't you have the courage, or the faith to stand with pride?

Are there no more values for which you'll fight to save?

Or do you wish your children to live in fear as a slave?

People of the Republic arise and take a stand!

Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land!

Preserve our Great Republic, and God Given Right!

And pray to God, to keep the torch of Freedom burning bright!

As I awoke he vanished, in the mist from whence he came.

His words were true, we are not Free, we have ourselves to blame.

For even now as tyrants trample each God Given Right,

we only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight.

If he stood by your bedside, in a dream, while you're asleep,

and wonders what remains of our Rights he fought so hard to keep,

What would be your answer, if he called out from the grave;

The Two Most Abused Words...

"With respect to the words general welfare, I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators." -James Madison

A Brave, New World...

"Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice." -John Adams
