The emphasis above is mine. That speaks to me. Are we, as a Country, going to p**s away the freedoms that tens of thousands have died to ensure we have? That thought is repugnant to me.
I agree, but what does that look like now? The American Revolution was fought when the Patriots were forming a new nation. 200+ years later, we are rapidly pissing it away. I believe that God wants us to fight for our country as this was supposed to be God’s haven on earth. We need to fight, but it’s going to be against family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Very ugly....much worse than 1860.
“the death of countless men in battle for the preservation of the rights and liberty earned in the Revolution.”
I think it depends on who and what they died for.
The way I look at it, the rights they fought and died for, and the liberty, was a personal decision. They fought for INDIVIDUAL rights, not national rights.
The time has come for us to take back our rights. I would gladly fight for restoration of our rights. When that time comes, I won’t fight for “everyones” rights, I’ll be fighting for MINE, and MY family. That may sound selfish, but it’s not, because I’ll be fighting alongside others who are fighting for the same thing.
So, to me, I would be fighting for the same ideas as my forefathers.
