Even after the scandals involving Benghazi, the IRS, NSA, and spying on the Press, President Obama’s approval is still hovering around 50%.
Apparently 66% of Americans have no problem with the Government spying on all of us.
Ben Franklin would be disappointed.
He who gives up freedom for safety deserves neither.
Today, on the eve of our nation’s birth, I am reminded of another quote by one of our Founding Fathers.
July 4th, 1826, the 50th Anniversary of the founding of America, Founding Fathers and lifelong rivals John Adams, age 90 and Thomas Jefferson, age 83, lay on their death beds. It is said that John Adams final words were “Thomas Jefferson survives” not knowing that the other former President had passed away only hours before.
Now America’s Constitution lies on the brink of death with a populous apparently too apathetic and ignorant of their own history and heritage to stand up and defend it. Meanwhile, in Egypt, the good people in that cradle of modern civilization have just overthrown the Islamist dictatorship of the Muslim Brotherhood that was installed with the backing of the Obama administration over 3 years ago.
In America we cannot yet totally despair. There are leaders in Washington D.C. standing up for our rights, regardless of poll numbers or popular opinion. The poisonous progressive agenda of this administration and some of their quislings in both parties has, for the moment, stalled. If Egyptians can find the courage to take back their country, so can we.
In a few short months, the 2014 election cycle will be underway and we will have the chance to send reinforcements to protectors of Liberty like Senators Rand Paul
We also have the opportunity to re elect and reinforce Congressmen like Justin Amash
and many others that I look forward to highlighting here as we move forward. It is truly an honor to be a part of such an auspicious team as we fight for freedom together.
For now, however tenuously, Liberty Survives. Let’s keep the light of Liberty burning.
