A WAR ON “TERROR”?

We, as Americans, must understand that we are at a crossroads in our generation as were our fathers of the WWII generation.  The survival of America as a constitutional republic and Americans as a free people is at one of its most challenging and defining moments in its history. Political forces and parties of men and women have irresponsibly forgotten that we are a constitutional republic.  Some are, without a doubt, on a malevolent course to totally transform us from what we are (a republic) to what they would likes us to be (a socialist, Marxist or global state).

Liberal progressives are the worst of all.  Substituting “moral equivalents” for war, they have taken advantage of the culture’s desire to resolve its problems.  They have used these “moral equivalents” such as the “War on Poverty” and the “War Against Drugs” as opportunities to expand government power into the lives of all its citizens.  Americans, believing that it is a good thing to solve these problems, have been duped by an ever-expanding and ever-encroaching government.

The U.S. Constitution allows for the declaration of war precisely because there are times when individual liberties must be curtailed for the good of the whole nation and to better combat our enemies.  But wars are declared and wars come to an end.  The liberal progressives’ “moral substitutes” for war mentioned before have no end.  The “War on Poverty” has gone on for more than 40 years with no signs of success; all at a huge cost to Americans’ individual rights and liberties and the plunder of their wealth by continuous, burdensome and over-bearing coercive government taxation.

We now have a “War on Terror” – or Terrorism.  President Bush’s colossal failure in the beginning of this armed conflict, I believe, was declaring war on “terror” and NOT on Al Qaeda (who attacked us).  Following the foolish and misguided principles of political correctness, He “declared” war on “terror”.  Because He declared war on a tactic (terror), and not on a people with ideological ideas of terror inconsistent with our values, we have left ourselves open and vulnerable to attack from within, and without.  Our government also, under the guise of protecting us from “terror,” infringes daily upon our constitutional rights as a people. 

Fighting a tactic (“terrorism”) has left our borders open to our enemies.  The Obama administration has even used taxpayer funds to bring many of these “immigrants” to America, helped them find jobs and settle here.  But does he really believe that America has need of the abilities that can only be found among Somali, Yemeni, Palestinian or Hamas immigrants?  Something more sinister is at work here and is evidenced no less by the Obama Administrations’ Department of Homeland Security.

Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) task is to protect Americans.  Yet while they say they are protecting us from terrorism, they have identified the most likely potential terrorists for the American people: those who are principled pro-lifers, pro-second amendment, pro-tenth amendment, anti-tax advocates, limited government advocates, tea-partiers, opponents of illegal immigration and – of all people – returning veterans!  Which group was not mentioned in the security report?  You guessed it: Muslim extremists, muslim clerics or anyone who might help Al-Qaeda or their demons.

The DHS and other police agencies have sought to limit, watch, screen and snoop on us in ever-increasing ways.  By every other means available to them, they expect us to willingly give up our constitutional rights under the guise that we are at war.  But war against an idea or a tactic (“terror”) will have no defined end.  Fighting a tactic will only serve the federal government’s purpose because it gives them continuous power to limit our liberties.

It’s time for Americans to wake up and, in the words of the Templar Knight to Indiana Jones, “choose wisely.”  2012 will be our time to say to our political leaders once again, we will not give up our constitutional liberties; we will not go quietly into the dark; we will prevail and America will not be a socialist, Muslim, marxist or global state.  

Over our White House will always fly the “Red, White and Blue”.  As freedom loving Americans, we will never accept a crescent moon, a hammer & anvil or a UN flag to fly over our nation.  America will remain, though a melting pot of people, a constitutional republic.  And we, as a people, will never yield to any party, elite, foreign power or ideology, our God-given rights, American values and constitutionally-guaranteed liberties.  

´til next time,

Danny

The Most Important Right of All

All human beings, born and unborn, have a fundamental right to life. 

When we speak of being “pro-life” we are restating one of the most famous phrases in the United States Declaration of Independence.  It reads as follows:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government ….”

 

The founding Fathers wrote in the Declaration “that to secure these rights” (among which “are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”) “Governments are instituted among Men.”  Government, we are told in this precious document, must exercise “just powers” (derived “from the consent of the governed”) which must protect  these “unalienable rights.”  When any “Form of Government becomes destructive to these ends”, (protecting these “unalienable rights” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”) it is the “Right of the People to alter or to abolish” that “Form of Government.”

Because Life is the fundamental right given us by our Creator, pro-death or pro-abortion  laws, which our government promotes and sanctions, are an exercise of unjust power.  It is the right of the people to alter or abolish any form of government that becomes the very destroyer of these basic human rights:  especially the right to life.

We must understand this in the most simple and basic of ways to keep from being embroiled in the confusion of arguments that ignore the basic premise of all other rights:  life.  The founding Fathers understood the importance of the intrinsic dignity of the human person as a creature created in the image of God.  The right to life is the moral claim that a person has to exist.  Since people are “endowed by their Creator” with the right to life it cannot be taken by the whim of human “choice” because it is an “unalienable right” [a right from which one cannot be alienated or separated].  Even the order of these unalienable rights in the Declaration were intended to prioritize their importance. 

Life … Liberty … pursuit of Happiness. 

One cannot have the “Liberty” to pursue his own “Happiness” if one is dead.  Life precedes Liberty because the right to liberty has no meaning apart from the right to life.  The pursuit of happiness follows liberty because one cannot pursue anything if he has not the liberty to do so. 

Our culture of death today has it all turned around.  They speak of “liberty” first and whatever is best for me and makes me happy next.  Life?  Ah, it’s dispensable.  Abort the child.   In this twisted thinking, freedom is the most important of human rights; life comes last.  Clinical abortion, the destruction of infants in their mothers’ wombs, violates the foundational right of all other rights: the right to life.  But liberty and pursuit of personal happiness without life is ludicrous.  Without the right to life, all other rights are meaningless.    

The existence of the “right” to totally unrestricted abortion, as exists in our culture today, is an malevolent evil to which our culture, for the most part, is now totally desensitized.  It is plenary evidence to the seared conscience of a nation, and world, that has abandoned reason at the altar of convenience and is confused about what really matters.  

Abortion is the most pressing human rights issue of our time.  A nation or people who cannot, or will not, roll back this unjust power over the unborn will not long endure.  Divine judgment is inevitable. 

We need to petition All Mighty God for a government and elected leaders that protect the right to life.  If we don’t have it, let us exercise our right to vote and to “alter and abolish that form of Government” that has become destructive to securing the right to Life for the most frail among us: the unborn.

God grant us mercy and grace to see politicians, who are enamored and passionate about the killing of the unborn, retired from public “service”, and the scourge of abortion removed from our land in our lifetime.
