“THE BANNER OF FREEDOM”
by OPOVV, ©2013
(Feb. 11, 2013) — For time immemorial, humans have yearned for freedom from want, hunger and fear. The concept of freedom isn’t some ethereal pipe dream; it’s a reality that, at some point in time, your ancestors dreamed of for future generations, if only to escape the daily grind of living life as a slave.
Folktales from ages long forgotten talk of “Wicked Masters” and “deliverance,” names given to characters who lived thousands of years ago, fables retold by the old to the young, generation following generation, verbal history passed down from parent to child, time after time. Lessons were learned in thrift, saving for a rainy day, and “no rest for the weary.” Bravery and self-sacrifice were placed on the “Pedestal of Admiration,” irrespective of where or at what time in history the heroic deed was accomplished. Yet for every deed remembered, thousands, millions failed to be remembered, although in the whole scheme of remembrance are just as important a guidepost by which to live one’s life.
These intrepid deeds were not carried out to elevate the Ruler, the Despot, or the Dictator. They were for removing the yoke of oppression, cutting the rope of restraint, and tearing down the walls of confinement in order to set people free, from Moses to Spartacus, from Martin Luther to Thomas Jefferson. “Perchance to Dream isn’t about subjection, and horizons conquered aren’t to be in the ovens of a concentration camp.
People know when they’re doing wrong, irrespective if they aren’t able to quote chapter and verse. We’ve seen it many times: illegal immigrants trying to escape capture by our “Men in Blue,” the shoplifter running from the store, and the speeder who just ran the red light. We see those who are supposed to uphold the traditions and values of our country in Washington, DC take a cavalier attitude towards their Oath to uphold the Constitution, conveniently forgetting that it is the people who hired them, the people whom they work for, and it is the people who have the Constitutional right to remove them from office, any elected official, in any position, at any time, if they demonstrate their failure to do what they were hired to do: represent the legal citizens of America.
I am more qualified to be the President than Obama, and, as you read these words, ask yourself if it wouldn’t be better if I were. To start, I can show my real Birth Certificate, give the Selective Service Administration permission to release my real records, give the Immigration Department permission to release my real passport records, and anything else that needs to be done, I shall gladly and freely acquiesce.
Our country is sliding down into an abyss from which she will never recover. We have people who are supposed to represent us but instead represent some alien form of belief, some strange form of government, people who do not honor those who have died for the Constitution and Old Glory. Washington, DC has become a nest of traitors who deserve whatever wrath can be wrought upon them. I call on all Patriots to heed the banner of Freedom, to listen for the Call to Arms, to shed sunshine on the black corruption that cloaks our “Freedom of Our Tomorrows.”
