Patriot or Not?

Nathan Hale quote | Nathan hale, Crop pictures, Famous quotes about lifeNever in American history has it ever been so easy to be a patriot. Today you don’t have to leave your own home in order to help your countrymen and to inflict a lot of pain and suffering to those who have thought nothing about degrading and trying to deny us our God-given rights that our ancestors had fought so hard to provide and protect.

No this no-risk proposition doesn’t cost you a thing  and unlike the two featured patriots above you don’t have to put your own life at risk, in fact you don’t need a musket or any weapon at all, you don’t even need to know how to march in formation or learn to say “yes sir, no sir”.

All you do need is the will to learn who the greatest threat to our freedom is and to join us in not using  your money to support and embolden their efforts to enslave us.

Compared to the millions who have sacrificed a part of their lives, if not all of their lives inorder to protect and pass-along better days for future generations, you can be a patriot by just taking a few moments of your time to find out who are enemies really are, who is supporting them, pass along that information to your patriotic friends and acquaintances and most importantly refuse to buy their product and services. If a significant number we will very quickly make them remember and understand that we are still a nation where the people, not the dictators and oligarchs as in other totalitarian governments rule. Which will continue as long as they believe they will get away with it and profit by it.

While true patriots like those shown above and below, risked their lives and fortune to resist oppression and fight for our freedom, we believe today there are many especially those in powerful positions who will do anything to obtain and/or remain in power inorder to enjoy the opportunity to increase their profits, perks and prestige that these positions allow the easily corrupted individuals to acquire. While ideally all of those elected are done so primarily to improve the lives and safety of  all our countries men and women, many if not most, are more concerned with improving their own lives and positions and rewarding those who keep them in their chushy and prosperous p;aces regardless of what’s best for the majority of the people. While they like to be called “Honorable” few are.  When the money starts to disappear, so will they. You don’t have to be named Merlin to help make that happen!

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!
