America survived one of its greatest internal conflicts where a nation divided decided it must go to war to settle the differences that raged between the two sides over states rights and slavery, in one of the bloodiest battles in its 235-year history, where brother fought brother and father fought son.
We survived the attack on Pearl Harbor and took on two evil nations in a World War with the might and courage of a brave and powerful nation. In that conflict millions of non-Americans were saved from brutal dictators and perpetual enslavement, by the extreme sacrifice of exceptional and courageous Americans who gave their all on the front lines of Hell and in the factories at home. The sleeping giant awoke and has vanquished those that interrupted his quiet, peaceful slumber. The sleeping giant grows restless once again, but now with a domestic enemy.
We have come through Korea and Vietnam with significant scars, both to our soldiers in uniform and to our pride as a nation, from wars that weren’t fought to win, or should have never been fought in the first place.
We have endured the devastating attack on September 11, 2001 where almost 3,000 innocent American civilians were killed by the evil act of an irrational and radical religious ideology, that still lurks in the shadows of our daily lives and refuses to go quietly into the night.
In our search for the devils that perpetrated 911, tens of thousands of brave, determined and well-trained Americans have and must now occupy the sandy trenches and dust storms of the middle eastern desert, trying to subdue an intractable enemy that knows nothing of peace and only lusts after the blood of their enemies …. an intractable enemy that has lived this way for over a thousand years in tribal conflict and defies any attempts to change to a culture of peace. The only force they understand is a force greater than theirs. The only message they get is the message of death.
Today, Americans, divided as they are, are now having to endure the injustices and unconstitutional insults of an irrational domestic ideological enemy that threatens to forever remove life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness from the greatest nation that was ever devised by man, from the greatest gift ever granted by their creator ….. the gift of freedom and liberty.
Once again, a nation now divided by those that love government for what it hands out and by those who must pay for the handouts and their desire to reclaim their birthright of liberty, are headed for a violent conflict in response to the wide gaps that separate them, unless they can negotiate a lasting peace between them before violence becomes the only solution. You cannot continue to have government rob Peter to pay Paul-the-sloth or Jose-the-illegal-alien and not have Peter eventually say, “I’m not going to pay any more!” and will come to blows to punctuate his determination to not be the patsy in a government-sponsored, give-away Ponzi scheme.
Nevertheless, Americans are unique on this planet. They have tasted freedom and they have slain the foreign thugs who have attempted to take it away. But they are somewhat confused between the dangers of a foreign enemy that would do them physical harm and bring them death and destruction, and the overt and sometimes covert actions of a domestic enemy that would undermine their freedom.
A foreign enemy’s intentions are open and notorious. A domestic enemy’s intentions are slow, camouflaged and insidious. They move by stealth in the night and in smoke-filled back rooms. They use the law and law-making to institute their agendas. They write and pass massive legislation or promulgate rules that only high-paid lawyers can understand. They hide the facts and hype the lies and distortions with national propaganda, dreamed up by college- educated idiots that received master’s degrees on how to manipulate our subconscious minds.
They slyly and purposely break constitutional safeguards and say it is necessary because of national security, or a national emergency, or a natural disaster, or for social justice, or for environmental protection. They exploit the elderly, poor and downtrodden for their own gain and to buy votes to secure perpetual political power.
Against this backdrop of a declining America and the efforts by the powerful elite to rob her of her wealth and resources and dissolve her sovereignty by merging her into the mediocrity and corruption of a one-world-order, Americans who still believe in freedom, self reliance, personal independence and responsibility, must stand tall in solidarity, just as they have for the last 235 years when freedom was born out of the savagery, brutality and chaos of Revolution and just as they have through all the wars, depressions and domestic conflicts in between.
It is up to you and those like you who cherish freedom, to preserve it. It is up to you to openly challenge those who come to destroy it. It is up to you to encourage and promote others to join you in this challenge. “The Parallax Prophecies” predicts that when all is said and done, Americans grow appreciably stronger when faced with insurmountable odds. They grow more fierce when evil raises its ugly head to denounce goodness and righteousness. They get furious when an injustice and corruption invades the domain or their politics, just as our great nation rose up in defense of the American Amanda Knox, who was crucified for a murder she did not commit, by a corrupt Italian prosecutor in his attempt to curry favor and votes from the Italian electorate.
Sure, there are Americans who just don’t care about anything; there are many who are just plain too soft; many are on the government dole, way too many are on drugs and a significant amount of Americans are totally disengaged. Yes, there are a bunch of union thugs and their groupies chasing after Wall Street and the bankers right now.
Even so, as we speak, there are courageous Americans who are confronting the status quo at significant risk to themselves. They are challenging the prevailing wisdom. They are taking issue with politics as usual. They are using whatever God-given talents they have to take on the domestic enemy that has soured our Republic and taken us down a dead-end path to national bankruptcy and the erosion of the foundation of our freedom.
If you are not now involved, get involved. Join the Tea Party or a freedom group. Participate with them and give funds to them so that they may continue this battle to reclaim the America that was born out of the loins and bravery of patriots, in their battle with government tyranny that they weren’t supposed to win but did, against all odds.
If you don’t, the ner-do-wells, the union groupies, the elite, the one-world-order types and those on the dole will win and you will have to pay, as you watch your freedom slip into oblivion, just as the ice-berg stricken Titanic slid beneath the waves on April 15, 1912 with the loss of over 1,500 souls.
We’ll close with the words of a Vietnam immigrant Quang Nguyen, in a speech he gave on July 24, 2010 in Prescott Valley, AZ. He opened with, “I was one of the first lucky 100,000 Vietnamese allowed to come to the US from Vietnam. I never thought I would see my family again. Somehow, my family and I were reunited 5 months later, amazingly, in California. It was a miracle from God.”
Mr. Nguyen wrapped up his speech with:
In 1982, I stood with a thousand new immigrants, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and listening to the National Anthem for the first time as an American. To this day, I can’t remember anything sweeter and more patriotic than that moment in my life.”
“You see, America is not just a place on the map, it isn’t just a physical location. It is an ideal, a concept. And if you are an American, you must understand the concept, you must accept this concept, and most importantly, you have to fight and defend this concept. This is about Freedom and not free stuff. And that is why I am standing up here.”
“Brothers and sisters, to be a real American, the very least you must do is to learn English and understand it well. In my humble opinion, you cannot be a faithful patriotic citizen if you can’t speak the language of the country you live in. Take this document of 46 pages – last I looked on the Internet, there wasn’t a Vietnamese translation of the US Constitution. It took me a long time to get to the point of being able to converse and until this day, I still struggle to come up with the right words. It’s not easy, but if it’s too easy, it’s not worth doing.”Before I knew this 46-page document, I learned of the 500,000 Americans who fought for this little boy. I learned of the 58,000 names scribed on the black wall at the Vietnam Memorial. You are my heroes. You are my founders.At this time, I would like to ask all the Vietnam veterans to please stand. I thank you for my life, I thank you for your sacrifices and I thank you for giving me the freedom and liberty I have today. I now ask all veterans, firefighters, and police officers, to please stand. On behalf of all first generation immigrants, I thank you for your services and may God bless you all.
Do only immigrants who become American citizens through the naturalization process and come from war-torn countries, understand what being an American is all about? We certainly hope not.
We are Americans, natural born or naturalized and we grow stronger, even when the wall we must climb continues to grow in height by the day. It makes no difference how the high the wall is because true Americans will find away around the wall, under the wall, through the wall, or over the wall, so help them God. The Obamas, Pelosis, Reids, and those that follow them can be defeated, but it is going to take all of us who believe in freedom to do it. Let’s once again start acting like true Americans. God bless America and her freedom.
NOTE: Did you know that your city or county may have partnered with the “International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives” (ICLEI), an international organization working under the United Nations that binds your city or county to the Agenda 21 policies of Smart Growth (which isn’t smart) and “Sustainable Development”, which is contrary to American constitutional safeguards? Find out if your city or county is an ICLEI partner by logging on to their website at: http://www.iclei.org/index.php?id=11454. When the page comes up, scroll down to the United States and look for your state and then your city to determine if you are on the list.
