Watching The Revolution Unfold on Independence Day
Canada Free Press ^ | 07/03/14 | Judi McLeod

With no Paul Revere to send out the warning bells, Independence Day 2014 progresses as the one in which a rogue U.S. president is lighting the match to toss into the dry tinder box called ‘The U.S.A Without Borders’.

A rouge president, and no revolution to remove him. How much worse could Joe “a laugh a minute” Biden be. Apathy is what is going to destroy this country.

"There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh - get first all the people's money, then their lands, and then make them and their children servants forever. It will be said that we do not propose to establish kings. I know it. But there is a natural inclination in mankind to kingly government. It sometimes
relieves them from aristocratic domination. They had rather have one tyrant than 500. It gives more the appearance of equality among citizens, and that they like.
I am apprehensive - therefore - perhaps too apprehensive - that the government of these States may in future times end in a monarchy [not called a monarchy but an executive with monarchial powers]. But this catastrophe, I think, may long be delayed, if in our proposed system we do not sow the seeds of contention, faction and tumult, by making our posts of honor places of profit. If we do, I fear that, though we employ at first a number and not a single person, the number will in time be set aside, it will only nourish the fetus of a king (as the honorable gentleman from Virginia very aptly expressed it), and a king will the sooner be set over us."

-- Benjamin Franklin

How about the baloney from the left of calling him “the deporter president” and “deporter-n-chief?

Am I the only one that suspects this was focus tested marketing scheme by the administration?

It looks like cover for his dirty work.

Why not go ahead and also call him “the job creator-n-chief” or the defender of the constitution, or the great

I know it sounds awfully pessimistic, but I just assume that America will die before I do.

And I never would have believed that someone could do all that Obama’s doing to destroy this country and that there’d essentially be no push-back.

Great quote by Benjamin Franklin. He and the other Founders were universally and eternally wise. Thank you.

Every year we pay lip service to Independence and Liberty, all the while a nascent dictator and his minions are robbing more and more our freedoms. How much longer?

Well, I think I’m ready for that and I have been for awhile now and I’m sure it’s gonna get ugly but I just don’t see the elective process remedying the country destroying Obama/Democrat coup anymore.
