No, It's Not A Fairy Tale, But It Certainly Is Grim

Once upon a time there was a nation inhabited by people who came from a multitude of other nations. These people believed in a philosophy which was described by the following words, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

This nation fought a war against an more prepared and equipped oppressive enemy to secure their independence. After gaining independence it decided that it needed some form of government which would "...form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity..."

Sounds like the beginning of quite the fairy tale doesn't it? Well it isn't, and I am sorry to say that the story, although not completed, appears not to have a happy ending. It is the story of our nation, the United States of America.

The principles upon which this nation was founded are sound, no matter how many mistakes were made by the men who held positions of power throughout the course of its history.

The principles upon which this nation was formed were conceived and actualized by men of honor, men of courage, and men of great wisdom. Men with names like Jefferson, Washington, Madison, Franklin, Henry, and Hamilton. Men like Nathan Hale who stated just before he was to be hung, "I regret that I have but one life to give for my country." How many men would be willing to make that claim today?

These men had a vision for this nation, which John Jay described in Federalist Paper #2, "With equal pleasure I have as often taken notice that Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people--a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs, and who, by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side throughout a long and bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence.

This country and this people seem to have been made for each other, and it appears as if it was the design of Providence, that an inheritance so proper and convenient for a band of brethren, united to each other by the strongest ties, should never be split into a number of unsocial, jealous, and alien sovereignties."

This nation opened its doors to people from all over the world who wished to come and participate in this great experiment, that people from all nations could live together, united, working for the common good of the nation as a whole. This concept was explained perfectly by Thomas Jefferson when he said, "Born in other countries, yet believing you could be happy in this, our laws acknowledge, as they should do, your right to join us in society, conforming, as I doubt not you will do, to our established rules."

When compared to the entire history of the world, this nations existence has merely been the blink of an eye, yet in our short time here we have already brought about our imminent downfall. Just as a child grows into adolescence and forgets much of what it was taught in its early years, our nation has forgotten the principles upon which is was founded. The names of our founding fathers are fading from our memories, and the principles they left us have long since been forgotten. Once again I am reminded of something said by Thomas Jefferson, "Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction."

Without character... The first amendment to the Constitution states that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." Patrick Henry could have been predicting our future when he stated that "It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains."

John Adams, our second president declared, "Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is religion and morality alone, which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure than they have it now, they may change their rulers and the forms of government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty."

We have forgotten these principles, and in so doing have chosen the path that is leading to the end to this once great nation. I find it ironic that the people of this country are fond of using the phrase God Bless America. Why should he when we have turned our backs on Him?

Thomas Jefferson once said, "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure if we have removed their only firm basis: a conviction in the minds of men that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever."

James Monroe, the fifth president must be weeping in his grave, as he predicted exactly what has happened to this country, "It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt, when they degenerate into a populace, that they are incapable of exercising their sovereignty. Usurpation is then an easy attainment, and an usurper soon found. The people themselves become the willing instruments of their own debasement and ruin."

The country that was founded by those men over two hundred years ago is long gone, the country which contained "a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs..."

It has been replaced by a politically correct quagmire of multiculturalism, full of ignorant and apathetic people more concerned about the outcome of some sporting event, or the next American Idol, than they are about their freedom and liberty.

When voting for their representatives, and make no mistake, they represent us, not lead us, they take the word of these pathological liars splattered across their televisions in slick 30 second sound bites. They are too lazy, apathetic, or both to research the truth regarding the people upon whom they place the sacred trust to uphold the Constitution.

For instance, those seeking office are always telling us how their policies will create more jobs. However, James Garfield, the twentieth president made the following comments regarding that very subject, "It is no part of the functions of the National Government to find employment for the people, and if we were to appropriate a hundred millions for his purpose, we should only be taxing 40 millions of people to keep a few thousand employed."

Benjamin Franklin was more to the point when he made the following comment over two hundred years ago, "The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself."

Theodore Roosevelt was less politically correct than would be acceptable today, but his thoughts cut to the very heart of the situation in the following two quotes,

"The first requisite of a good citizen in this republic of ours is that he shall be able and willing to pull his own weight."

"If an American is to amount to anything he must rely upon himself, and not upon the State; he must take pride in his own work, instead of sitting idle to envy the luck of others. He must face life with resolute courage, win victory if he can, and accept defeat if he must, without seeking to place on his fellow man a responsibility which is not theirs."

When Theodore Roosevelt spoke of 'an American' he meant exactly that as he explains in the following, "There can be no fifty-fifty Americanism in this country. There is room here for only 100 percent. Americanism, only for those who are Americans and nothing else."

Thinking like that is just not acceptable today. To expect someone to pull their own weight, to not place his burdens upon his fellow men, and to claim total allegiance to this country? Those thoughts would be cause enough today to label Roosevelt a racist, and unsympathetic to the poor and downtrodden at the minimum. In this politically correct multicultural society it is totally unacceptable to hold people accountable for their actions, and to expect allegiance to our nation and the principles upon which it was founded goes completely against the concept of multiculturalism.

It is now commonplace that this we bend over backwards to accommodate beliefs other than those upon which our nation was founded. While we are tolerant of the beliefs of others, the very beliefs that made America what it is are now considered to be politically incorrect. English is no longer the language that binds this country together, and if we demand it be spoken we are labeled racist and intolerant.

The ability to publicly display our religious beliefs, the same beliefs as those held by our founding fathers, is now publicly shunned, and worse prohibited by our Supreme Court. Yet we make accommodations for those with other beliefs, we practice tolerance while their religion preaches intolerance. From the Quran, or Koran, whichever way you wish to spell it, Surah 4, verse 89 states, “They but wish that ye should reject faith as they do, and be on the same footing as they, so take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah. But if they turn renegades, seize them and kill them wherever ye find them and take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

And if that isn’t bad enough, the ultimate goal of their religion is plainly stated in Surah 8 verse 39, “Fight them until their is no dissension and the religion is entirely Allah's.”

We are no longer a nation “speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs” When I speak out on these issues I am told that I am intolerant, but anyone who judges me by my actions knows better. The simple fact is that people come to this country to live of their own free will, we do not import them under duress. The least they could do is respect our customs, our language, and most of all, our laws.

Again, it is due to our ignorance and our apathy that we so easily fall for the concepts of political correctness and multiculturalism. It is for the same reasons that our nation has come to the point it is at today, the point where our elected representatives are mere puppets being controlled by hidden masters.

It is at this point that I am labeled a nut, a conspiracy theorist. Yet Theodore Roosevelt believed it, so did Woodrow Wilson.

“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”
Theodore Roosevelt

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”
Woodrow Wilson

Our country is at a tipping point, at the edge of an abyss from which if we fall into, we will never be able to restore those freedoms and liberties upon which we were founded. In November we will once again go to the polls to elect a new president. It is up to us to think seriously about who we intend to vote for. A vote for any of the three main candidates is a vote to push us off into the abyss. Ron Paul would have been a good choice, but the media ignored him and the people never accepted what he was telling them about our country’s future.

We have a very short window of opportunity to reverse the damage that has been done if this nation is to survive. Our children are being educated in this politically correct multicultural society. When the generation that still remembers the principles upon which our nation was founded passes into history, it will be over for America unless we can educate the youth in regards to the principles which made America great.

However I am not holding my breath. And that is why I say that the story about the United States of America is all but concluded. I don’t believe the people of this country care enough to do what is right for our nations future. As long as they have a roof over their head, three meals a day and a television to numb their minds, they are content.

The end is coming, and coming quickly. Believe me or not, but when it gets here I don’t want to hear people say that someone should have warned them. When the end comes, if you have any complaints, take them to your benevolent government because I don’t want to hear them.

IMHO,this country is ending and it will get smaller in size if the NAU does not happen. If the 3 countries do not join into one multi-cultural union, then eventually America will be divided - Northwest going to Asians, Southwest back to Mexico, east America for the Muslins,leaving middle for remaining Americans...

Either way the people will be happy, brain dead,but happy...
