America: Land of the blind and home of the stupid

I came across Mr. Bussey's site tracking a link that had been posted by Always On Watch on her excellent site.

Wow, and excellent commentary by Steve Bussey. I have asked and received his permission to share what he has written and expressed. I think it is superb and it is so very true. I have added his site to the blogroll here and would encourage you to drop in there and check it out.

Another site worth your time is one I found through Steve Bussey's site. This site is called Two Sisters From The Right. There is some very powerful and a lot hard truths that many Americans refuse to believe about our country. This about the sad state that the Untied States now finds itself in.

We have truly lost our way and the wolves are not only at the door, they are INSIDE the barn, feasting on the livestock, destroying us from within. You all know of whom, what and how, that I am talking about.

If you are a Kool Aid drinking libtarded marxist then you had better just move along. Nothing for you to see or read here.


America: Land of the blind and home of the stupid
By Steve Bussey

Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

I wanted to publish this article today in preparation for the Right Blog Fest taking place on Monday in celebration of Memorial Day – honoring the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in military service to this once great Nation.

We have evolved, or devolved if you will, from the Patrick Henry quote above to a nation where an armed representative of “The State” will pull you over while driving for not wearing your personal protective device – a seatbelt – and write you a ticket.

We have devolved to a point where we refer to the basic human right to move about as a “privilege,” and I don’t give a damn what form of transportation a free man selects, planes, trains, automobiles or bicycles. If you’re not walking somewhere then the omnipotent government considers your personal conveyance a privilege and they’ll even, in certain circumstances, regulate your walk!

We now live in a nation where the armed representatives of our government will stop you at a checkpoint on a public roadway and force you to “show your papers,” driver’s license, proof of insurance and registration in the absence of any probable cause or a traffic or criminal violation – the infamous DUI checkpoints – but they cannot demand proof of citizenship from suspected illegal aliens.

The Indiana Supreme Court recently decided that citizens of that State cannot protect their life and property against unlawful intrusions by law enforcement and our federal Supreme Court decided cops can storm your house without a warrant and having done no previous investigation if they suspect you might be destroying evidence (of something – who knows what).

In some places the city will give you a selection of colors with which they will “allow you” to paint your house and decide how long your grass can be. You have to seek their permission on bended knee and pay for the “privilege” of cutting down your own tree, fencing your own property and more.

Our national leaders now sit around – without embarrassment – and decide how best to divide the spoils of their latest election victory and claim the undefined or ill-defined “rich” have no inherent right to the fruits of their own labor. Some notable figures such as alleged documentarian Michael Moore claim the money possessed by the wealthy is not theirs, but a “national treasure,” and yet we sit here idle.

A presidential candidate proudly pledged to “fundamentally (yet ambiguously ) transform” this once great nation and millions of Americans elected him ostensibly for that purpose in spite of that fact that his pledged transformation meant that millions of Americans would become something little better than indentured servants!

Our forefathers fought, bled and died so that we might live free and codified their grand struggle in The Constitution of the United States. Now though, that august document is but an historic relic pilloried by politicians, pundits and activists.

Thousands of elderly in New York’s 26th Congressional District just elected a Democrat in a special election because they wrongfully believed that Republicans had the intestinal fortitude – which they don’t – to take away that which is given them unconstitutionally. They didn’t even have the courage to research and obtain the knowledge to discern the lie or the respect for the rule of law to sacrifice that which they receive illegally – the Constitution being the Supreme Law of the Land and making no provisions philosophically, explicitly or implicitly for anything even remotely resembling Medicare.

The voters in New York’s 26th just dishonored and insulted our Founding Fathers, you, me and this Nation.

Leading up to the day in which we honor the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for this once great Nation I cannot help but lament – America, Land of the blind and home of the stupid.
