Remember the words of the great Democratic President, JFK. “Do not ask what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country” states the turmoil and division of America today. Too many people expect that the Federal government is supposed to make everything great for everyone while ignoring the good of Country and Citizenship. We see it in all areas, from abortion to transgender restrooms and shower privileges, to racism, to loud mouthed candidates for President, to criminal actions by Secretaries of State and candidates for President. Yes, America needs a J.F.K to lead it once again to greatness.
JFK is often quoted with the following statement: “Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, Citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily lives and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.” JFK was not talking just about having arms at the ready, but of American citizens ready to fight corruption, unequal laws to highlight small portions of the populace, and a people who have become lazy in their dedication to defend the Constitution.
Today we have racism back to pre-1960s anger, we have women treated as poorly as before their suffrage, and special interest groups in bulk demanding special rights for as little as .03 of the populace. Why? Who? When? and where? did this take place? It took place in an Oval Office with a man more bent on changing the character of a country, than on preserving the sanctity of the country’s Constitution. We cannot keep going down this path, or we will no longer see America as it was meant to be by the forefathers who wrote the greatest constitution in history, the U.S. Constitution, the greatest democratic paper ever written, not only for this Republic, but in the world of all free people.
We can no longer let the marijuana smokers guilt Americans into allowing a substance 5 times as harmful to a healthy lung as that of a regular cigarette. America can no longer allow special interest groups to demand free reign on marriage rights, or we will see polygamy, animal, human marriage, etc. Laugh as you may, but go back 100 years and tell a person of these issues of today. No longer can we even consider a bathroom or public shower where males with all the anatomical parts can shower with females with all anatomical parts, and not expect rape, molestation, kidnapping, and murdering of more of our most vulnerable the children and elderly. No longer can we be discussing remunerations for what might or might not have happened within a family’s heritage as far as slavery goes. Then shall we not pay for every child who was brought to America, and went through turmoil because their parents could not find work and a good life?
No, the Liberal idealism of doing for everyone on the backs of the working class, the Christians the helpless, and the needy for the rights of the few who are loud, ignorant, and unworthy of such grandeur as they demand. Each and every person needs to be judged by their character, and nothing more or less. Every family needs a mom and dad if it is marriage sanctified by God and Church, or it needs to be a legally binding civil union. Every child of the LGBT needs to be loved, understood, and supported but not by making laws and opinions that put the greater population at risk for injury or even death. There are better ways.
America needs to have Minutemen ready at a moment’s notice to take up their copy of the US Constitution, and fight for the right to keep it as our guiding light. We need minutemen to fight against tyranny, racism, bigotry, and politically correct foolheartedness. We need minutemen to take up their Constitution and battle against politicians who are destroying America by the laws, lies, and separate laws that only divides us, and not unites us.
We need an army of Minutemen to take up their Constitution and battle the evils of the candidates in this year’s election, and offer a true change. We don’t need a populist, we need a Constitutionalist.
Where are our minutemen asking “what can I do for my country, not what my country can do for me” as they fight the evils of Populism, Liberalism, and criminal politicians and hope-to-be politicians. We need to find our “Shining City on a Hill’, and we can only find that by judging each politician with their promises to “be judged by their character”, which means their past and their current actions. If we want to be able to pursue happiness in this great country once again, America needs a lot of minutemen ready to take arms against those special interests, and fight with all their might with the constitution in hand to a Servant-Leader who believes in America, and its citizens, not a different America, and not an America where one thinks they are a Savior.
THE SEAS NEVER ROSE, THE OCEANS DID NOT PART IN 2008 OR 2012. THE AMERICA I KNOW IS STILL GREAT, AND DOES NOT NEED AN EGOTISTICAL FALSE PROPHET TO PROMISE HE HAS A BIG BRAIN AND KNOWS LOTS OF WORDS SO HE CAN MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
AMERICA IS GREAT BECAUSE OF HER PEOPLE, NOT HER POLITICIANS OR SPECIAL INTERESTS. WE NEED A MINUTEMAN TO TAKE UP ARMS OF OUR CONSTITUTION AND LEAD US BACK ON OUR GOD GIVEN DESTINY!!!
