There is a lot of chatter on the news, the web, and in the papers, concerning the history of the past sixty years of our nation, and most of it is biased towards Progressive ideals, but the truth is the truth, I was there; I lived through the years of the “hippie generation”, of the Carter Presidency, and of the Kennedy assassination, and I know what really happened. I also know the lies of the people who led the Anti-War movement; the “flower child” image they want the youth of today to see, and the truth of their hatred for their own country, their need for name recognition, and power hunger! I was a strong Democrat until I went to DC, to work for Veteran’s Rights and the POW movement, and it was my personal interaction with the Members of Congress, and the Senate, where I learned the truth about their total lack of concern for the citizens of this country, their endless thirst for greed and power, that made me cross the line to become a Conservative Independent!
When I hear people say they “know” their Congressman, or Senator, I know that they have no real idea of what that person is truly like, as they only see the image that they are supposed to see! But I lived the “life”, on the Hill, for two and a half years, every single day, with an average of 4 hours of sleep a night, and every waking hour being concerned about the issues I fought for, and I saw the real side of almost every Member of Congress when they were away from the cameras and they had no reason to hide anything from anyone. Look at it this way; when you were a kid, you saw the way your parents acted when they were out with other people, and you saw your real parents when they were at home, alone, with you; in public, they acted as they were expected to act. At home; they let their hair down and acted like themselves! Every politician has something to hide, something to keep hidden from the public, and you will never see that unless you work in one of their offices! And they have a “public” side; the smiling face, the concerned heart, the “deep-seated” loyalty to the citizens who live in their districts! Then you have the real side of a politician; the part of them that will bend over backwards for the Special Interest groups that put money in their pockets, the part that wakes up every morning looking for some way to build their importance, their power, their need for the press to place their faces on TV!
Many of our most “infamous” politicians, the ones that want to destroy this country, got their start in the Hippie Generation; Boxer, Reed, Pelosi, Dodd, and many others, were involved in anti-government movements back in the late ’60s and early ’70s. When I came home from Vietnam, I returned to a nation in which protesters were rioting in the streets, taking over College buildings, locking everyone out, in order to get press for their movements! They beat up people who stood against them, they burned cars, bombed buildings, and threw rocks and bottles at Police officers who were standing away from them, simply trying to control the situation! Any time they had demonstrations, they left huge messes behind them and they usually got so violent that some had to be arrested! What did the “Silent Majority” do to end their actions? Nothing, because they did not want to violate their rights, guaranteed under our Constitution! And the hippies would stand up and scream that their rights to “Free Speech” were being violated, any time there was any sort of legal action taken against them! The big topic of conversation was “Demonstrations are Free Speech”, and they made sure that everyone knew that Americans have the right to voice their opinions, without governmental condemnation or limitation! But it was never meant to be a Constitutional right for all Americans; it was meant to be their right, their need to speak out against the government they hated!
Now; look to today: We have had, over the past year and a half, many peaceful demonstrations, gatherings that took place in public areas that were allowed because the organizers got the necessary permits to hold them there. The demonstrators are very peaceful, they do not cause problems for the police, in fact; they do all they can to work with the police, to see that everything goes smoothly! When the demonstration has finished, the people clean up after themselves, leaving no mess for City workers to have to pick up! The Tea Party members are loyal Americans; they do not cause problems, they do not start fights with the police, they go to the demonstrations, show their support for the issues, then leave to go home! And the ex-Hippies, the ones that used to terrorize the citizens of the communities in which they held their violent, angry protests against the Vietnam War, the government, and the returning veterans of the war, the ones that demanded their rights to hold demonstrations, and free speech, jump up and do everything they can to destroy the honor of the Tea Party movement by calling the members “Home Grown Terrorists”, “anti-American”, “racists”, “bigots” and “violent militia members”! They try to make the public believe that we are violent, and a danger to our country, while their SEIU supporters are being sent into cities, to beat up little old ladies and innocent venders! I can remember the protestors of the anti-War movement, and they were dangerous at times, and they demanded their Constitutional Rights, and those same people are now out trying to destroy those exact same rights for citizens who stand against them for their actions that are exactly the opposite of what the people of America want and need!
I fought for my country, and its safety is one of my most deeply held convictions! And, when I see illegals flooding over our border, it breaks my heart and makes me stand against our politicians, to end the control that the Progressives have over our country! We have legal, long-held standards for non-Americans to enter our nation and become citizens, if they are willing to work for it! We have laws that demand that any person, whom law enforcement officers believe is in our country illegally, has to show proof if they aren’t. We have laws that demand that anyone who sneaks in must be returned to where they came from! We have laws that make it illegal for any employer to hire an illegal! And we have laws that make it a crime to assist any illegal, in any way! Does our government use those laws to protect the citizens of the United States? NO! And when a state like Arizona stands up and writes State Laws to keep illegals out, laws that do not contradict Federal Law, but simply repeat it, what does our government do? It stands on the side of illegals, criminals under our State and Federal laws, and harbors them to keep them safe from the danger of arrest,deportation, or both! To put it very simply: Washington, DC supports the rights of criminals, illegals, and ignores the necessity of the protection and rights of every family of American citizens! We voted them into office to work for us, and they work for everyone else, and against us! We are not the trouble-makers, we are the citizens, expressing our rights under our Constitution, and our government is attacking us for doing so, and is making every possible effort to legalize every individual who broke our laws by sneaking into our country! The time has come for the citizens of America to stand up, to make their ideals and voices heard, to do whatever is necessary to bring the control of our great nation back into the hands of the citizens of America, to end this governmental support for anyone who wishes to break our laws, and trash our country and its Constitution!
WAKE UP AMERICANS, OR LOSE AMERICA!
