My friends, my fellow patriots, we are men and women from different places in life. Some of us have children and grand children. We have families we cherish. We worship differently and share many ethnicities. We do not judge people for we know it is not our place. We long for an America of myth, of times long past. We yearn for the freedom to worship as we will, to say what we want without fear of reprisal, to pursue our choice of happiness with minimal interference from an increasingly tyrannical federal government. Today we cower in fear wondering what we might say or do to defend those rights bestowed by God that will be found by our communist antagonists who control Washington to be seditious and warrant action. Today we suffer millions of people out of work and businesses unable to hire them. Today we are robbed to a point where the common person can barely survive, let alone pursue our dreams while the wealth for which we labored for OUR families is being distributed among those who are already enslaved to the aristocracy. Today we are mandated to purchase insurance that we do not need and which we cannot afford, neither personally nor nationally; we are told what products we buy in order to appease the green lobby; we are slowly losing our rights as parents to schools that have become institutions of indoctrination and resist any attempts to assert our rights as parents. Many of the leaders of said institution are criminal and, in some cases, truly sick individuals; yet, they go unpunished, and we continue to let our children suffer. Today we witness a moral decay of biblical proportions while our efforts to repel their decadent advances meet with increasing resistance and more failures than victories.
To understand where we are, why we are here, and just who our foe is, we must understand how we got here. Understand it is not our fault. Our progressive foes have carefully implemented their agenda for a century. They have been incredibly successful and must be respected, not admired, for such success. They are crafty and extremely focused. As witnessed, especially in the last five years, they are more than willing to lie to achieve their aims. They feel no guilt, no remorse for the pain and suffering they cause. They feel emboldened with the coming of their messiah, Lord Obama. They have no respect for our laws, especially the Constitution. Our rights mean nothing to them, and in this process they have mentally warped a large swath of our population. They are our lost brethren.
Our very nature allowed this to happen. As conservatives, we prefer to be left alone to live our lives, and in kind, we generally do not interfere with the rights of others. Our nature allows for small compromises, some of which we never suspected we would regret. Sometimes the winds of fate do not blow favorably and we have no control of change. Obama's promise to fundamentally change of this country is on schedule. The weapons at his and his follower's disposal are many. Yet, not so many and great they cannot be overcome.
And overcome we shall. Now is that time. As we look for a leader to inspire and champion the cause, we overlook our greatest strength, ourselves. If we are waiting for a sign we have it. I suppose the stars have aligned to present no greater time to bring about their defeat. It has the potential to render them useless for years to come and the opportunity to begin reclamation of the greatest nation the world has ever seen.
What is it? ObamaCare. No single program represents their agenda better and exposes them to the light of truth. It is said the republican party is in a state of civil war, but it is nothing compared to the one facing the democrats. They are jumping ship left and right. Usually kind allies in the MSM are questioning it and the president. He has been exposed and more people are realizing what is happening. Now is the time to rebel.
The remaining question is how. What outlets does the Constitution give us to control a runaway central government? There are many. Some are better than others. Some are not feasible at present. The first is to bring about articles of impeachment against the president (and include AG Eric Holder while we're at it). We impeached Nixon (almost) and Clinton for far less. I think this would pass the House, but die in the Harry Reid controlled Senate as most things have. I think it should remain alive as an option worthy of pursuit should the republicans regain the Senate. However, the Constitution also provides us with Article 10. The true power of the union resides in the states and the people. The income and other various taxes have allowed the government to bribe the states into surrendering much of their power. They can take it back. We are seeing successes through nullification and noncompliance laws. Article 5 is a noble idea presented by Mark Levin and supported by groups like the Citizens for Self Governing. Indeed, this use to be a favorite of mine. I have since recognized many flaws in that prospect being the main tool. There is one greater and far more effective as well as favored by the Founders.
It is us, the sovereigns. The Founders foresaw this day and left us ways out. But we are the most important and most powerful weapon. They said, first in Declaration of Independence, and in other papers that resistance to unjust laws was our duty. By standing aside we silently give our consent to such laws. It is time for civil disobedience.
And ObamaCare is the opportunity. Citizen noncompliance is a powerful and effective method to having this law removed. They chose the IRS to enforce this law because of the intimidation that agency inspires. We are almost instinctively programmed to fear the IRS. They were perfect enforcers. We must not fear them or the threats Washington will levy. This is our come-to-Jesus moment. Just as He went postal in the temple, we must repel this cancerous law! Not only should we not comply with the individual mandate, but I call upon all doctors to remove themselves from the program, as well. This message to Washington, particularly the left, will awaken the true sleeping giant in this country!
I want you to take a moment. I want you to watch your children or the neighbors' children if you have none. Watch them playing, watch them making a mess while they eat. Watch them learning about things with their infinite curiosity. Look into their eyes when they're hurt or sad knowing they are counting on you to protect them. Understand you are responsible for their future. Do you want them to be slaves or free persons? They already have to shoulder a horrendous debt, but it can get much much worse.
We are duty bound by our children to stop this coup of our country. We our honor bound by God to restore it. It was the grace of God, or divine providence, and the gutty individual exceptionalism of America's people, not always perfect but always relentlessly to be better that made this country successful. Remember, we were thriving and becoming a world player before Amendment 16. We were the ultimate symbol of hope and freedom and today we are this world's last hope. While the progressive left has suppressed our wills it has not robbed us of our deep-rooted spirits. We have much to change but we have moral and righteous reasons to undertake it.
We cannot sit idly by awaiting our glorious leader. The time is now, the challenge made. If do not rise now, we will most assuredly fall. Look at your children, think about their future. Look in the mirror and resolve yourself to do that which you know is right. We are strong, we are resolute, we are exceptional in our beliefs. We are AMERICANS!
