Remember! Appreciate! Defend!


Our freedom has been won and preserved at an awesome price.

Tomorrow we celebrate all those who have fought to obtain our freedoms and to preserve them. They put their lives in jeopardy in a gamble that we could live a free life as individuals. Many forfeited them. They lie in rows, asking only two things: we remember their sacrifice…we preserve the freedoms they died for.

There are some who would abandon those freedoms for their totalitarianism that whispers sweet lies about “equity.” The only equality will be the misery ALL live under, but for the very elite and select few that make rules tor thee and not for them. Those who insist there is only one way to think, do so at their peril. Intolerance breeds intolerance. Power shifts. When it does, those that have abused it will suffer. Sometimes harshly. And, the power structure will change! Those that wish to make change must understand that change is never static. Those that do have an SI (Stupidity Index) not an IQ.

Slavery is a great wrong. Whether it is to another human…or to the state! Having the state tell you what you can do, what you can’t, what you may have, what you may not, where you may go, where you can’t, and most basically what you may think and what you can’t, is slavery. Know this! Those that seek this “Eguity of Misery,” know it is for you…not them.

The blood and treasure lavishly spent to make us free will not be forfeit. Those sacrifices make us aware that those freedoms are what have made us a truly great country where others wish desperately to live. If we are so bad, why is that? 

Those that lost their lives did not do so for us to abandon them

Look around you.

Misery for the many is in evidence and growing everywhere. Do not let it win.

One thought on “Remember! Appreciate! Defend!

  1. My new motto: “I love this country, even when it’s fxxxxd up.”
    It’s about liberty.
    Freedom is precious, and I will be first in line if called upon to defend it with my life.
    Liberty is priceless. It differs from Freedom. A slave can be freed, emancipated, yet still have liberties curtailed and restricted.
    Liberty is respect for the individual, and there “inalienable rights”.
    Liberty allows one to choose their own path; right or wrong, good or bad, without interference.
    I am supremely grateful for the opportunity afforded me, purchased at that most extreme cost, to be truly free.
