I Still Have a Dream

Friday, August 27, 2010

47 years ago Dr. Martin Luther King gave possibly the most influential speech ever given on American soil. Calling America out for its deliberate double racial standard, he demanded that it live up to its most cherished credo: "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."

We would do well to follow Rev. King's example. Our country is not living up to many more of principles upon which it was founded. Our founders guaranteed us freedom from an oppressive government that seized our property to waste it on political machinations, or to give it to those who do not work. They guaranteed us the right to determine our own laws and regulations, and not have them forced upon us by executive orders and judicial decrees. They guaranteed us protection from foreign and domestic terrorism. They guaranteed us that every life would be protected, whether the mother considered it one or not. Our current government is bouncing each of these checks.

Our government is now spending more money then it has ever in it's history combined and leaving we the people and our children the oppressive bill. These horrendously expensive programs are not by our consent and not for our benefit, but to solidify and increase the power of the ruling government. Judges and politicians are overruling the will of the American people with regards to gay marriage, illegal immigration and socialized medicine, shoving it down our throats, "Whether we like it or not." We have increasingly alarming instances of Muslim-extremist and Mexican druglord terrorism on American soil because the government refuses to take the necessary steps to stop it. Nearly 50,000 innocent children have been denied the right to live, often murdered in procedures that caused them great pain, all in the name of convenience.

America needs another new birth of freedom. The 1960s were the fight for racial equality. The 2010s will be the fight for reclaiming all Americans' rights back from the government that took them away. We must all awaken to our state of enslavement, cast aside our shackles and demand that our voices be heard. Starting November we will not allow America to be "remade" according to some radical Washington politicians. We will keep the progress we the people have made in racial and gender equality and restore the moral values and principles upon which this country was founded. We will create the nation that our founding fathers wanted to creat but couldn't, and the nation that our current government won't allow. Liberty. Equality of opportunity. Justice. Industry. Decency.

You are aware that Dr. King was a socialist, right? Yeah, he was.

He cheated on his wife too. Are you suggesting that we not hold him up as a great man, Personal Failure? I think he was, despite his faults. He stood up for what was right, and that's what we need more of now.
