“Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty.”
You ever wonder why the politicians in Washington seem to shy away from confrontation of their beliefs? Now granted, I am talking mostly about the GOP and their “elite” membership, not the newest members. And I am talking of the party that used to embrace Conservatism, but doesn’t anymore. Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the swirling tempestuousness of the sea of liberty.
The founding fathers never said having a free and independent nation would be easy. Benjamin Franklin once said, “We have a republic, for as long as we can keep it.”
He said that because he knew that there would come a time when the opposition to freedom would raise their heads and figure out that using the right language, freedoms could be gotten rid of with “heartfelt lies” that would tug at the emotions of the people if they allowed themselves to become ignorant of the law. We are now at the point that Jefferson and Franklin warned us of.
We are a nation led by timid men who would rather figure out heartfelt lies to push the people into ignorance and into a life of ease because the government is offering everything in place of working for it. The Tempestuous Seas of Liberty have become too much work, because letting a bigger and more intrusive government do it all for us.
“A government big enough to give you everything you need, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have….” Remember that one from Thomas Jefferson? Look at Obama and the things that he has instituted since being in office. He is growing our government at a rate far exceeding any president before him, and he knows what he is doing. He wants a government big enough to give us everything we need, so when the time comes, he can take everything he wants from us. And when that time comes people, there will be few out here who will stop him.
I was reading an article from Breitbart.com last night about Hobby Lobby. They have decided that the idea of the government has no right to mandate that they pay for a program that also pays for abortions.
Hobby Lobby is a good-sized company of 572 stores and 13,000 employees who if they continue this could be fined to the tune of 1.3 million per day! If their case takes another 10 months to get to court, they could conceivably be fined over 40 million in fines for January alone!
But they are standing by their beliefs. And I say HOORAH for them! On Friday they announced that they were not going to do what ObamaCare mandates they do.
The Greens, who own Hobby Lobby, correctly understand that some of the drugs the HHS Mandate requires them to cover at no cost in their healthcare plans cause abortions. They are evangelical christians who
are committed to running their business in accordance with their Christian faith, believing that God wants them to conduct their professional business in accordance with the family’s understanding of the Bible. Hobby Lobby’s mission statement includes, “Honoring the Lord in all we do by operating the company … consistent with Biblical principles.”
More people need to believe like the Greens do, and stop with the idea of being timid and letting government take away our freedoms, one by one, till we have none to take away. And that day is coming my friends. Mark my words. That day is so close, you can almost see it. It is like I have said before, I do not want to lose my America, but voting the way we have been, we are actively participating in this very destruction of the country we say we love.
God Bless America
God Bless our troops
God Bless our ability to right wrongs
