Fighting For Freedom

The US has been at war since 9/11 to defeat Terrorism and Islamic Fascism. That war must be won to preserve our way of life. But now, we face another war of sorts that is an assault on our freedoms. President Obama and the Socialists that control Congress are determined to create an even bigger more intrusive federal government, that if not stopped, will govern every aspect of daily life. We have experienced government creep for the past hundred years, way beyond anything our Founding Fathers, could have ever imagined. As such, today local, state and federal governments all tell us what to do and when to do it in one way or another. We pay a myriad of taxes and fees to the point that many give up 50% or more of personal income. This has always been justified over the years as necessary for the collective good; but is it?

We pay gasoline taxes, vehicle license and toll road fees presumably to fund road construction, yet every major city in the US has serious traffic congestion. Many pay local and state income taxes to fund local government; yet 46 states are now running a deficit and education in the United States that consumes billions of dollars produces very poor results when compared to the rest of the world.. We pay a variety of federal income taxes; yet the federal government is $13 Trillion in debt. We have paid Trillions in Social Security and Medicare contributions to provide for our senior years; yet these programs are bankrupt. Obviously, something is very broken. The taxes confiscated from us are going to pay for government employees with exorbitant salaries and benefits, entitlement programs some of which support illegal aliens and vast amounts of pork barrel spending and corruption to buy votes so that politicians can stay in power for life.

As though this is not bad enough, as the government at all levels gets bigger and takes more of our income, the American people lose their freedoms as the big hand of government begins to rule over more of our lives. Those on the dole and or those that pay little or no income taxes at all may see this government intrusion as acceptable, or even beneficial since apparently many of them cannot care for themselves, or their families; but the 50% of Americans that pay all the taxes in our country must stand up and say HELL NO to the loss of our freedoms and more government intrusion into our lives. Obama and the Socialists that currently control Congress seek to redistribute our income in the name of "social justice". What they really want to do is buy votes with our money to stay in power.

As we send our soldiers off to fight for freedom in foreign lands, we must fight for our freedom at home with the same ferocity. We are a crossroad. If we allow Obama and the Socialists that control Congress to succeed, it will be at the expense of our freedoms. We cannot allow that to happen. We must implement a Civil War of ideas at the ballot box to take back our country. We must strive to convince those on the dole and those that pay little or taxes at all, that they have made a deal with the devil that will cost them their freedoms.

This is the fight of our life time. The future of our nation and our people depends on our actions and ability to elect Conservatives in 2010 and 2012 who support free market capitalism, limited government, a balanced budget, lower taxes and less regulation, term limits, a strong national defense, real energy independence and health care reform, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. Most important, we must elect Conservatives who support the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by our current incompetent Socialist President, former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We can do it. We must take back our country. We must sweep these Socialists out of office by making Obama a one term President to preserve our freedoms. In the end, we are fighting for freedom and our way of life.
