He sure as heck has no chance of winning if the people who say they will protect and defend the US Constitution give up like wusses and accept GOVERNMENT-ESTABLISHED religion coming from the guy who has bought off our own party.
All that outcry by the Catholic Church when it was found that Obamacare would force Catholics to pay for and perform abortions. Jews, Evangelicals, Catholics.... all stood together to say that religious coercion by the government is wrong. We all thought maybe the Catholic Church had gotten the gumption to actually stand up for their own freedom.
And then we found out that Obama was just copying what Romney - the R-e’s knight in shining armor who bought off endorsements with his money and won states by law-breaking and trickery - had already done in Massachusetts, and the CAtholic Church had slavishly fallen in line just like all these supposed Constitution lovers will fall in line behind Romney.
God! Have we no spine? Have we no convictions? No hope? Lord, rescue us from our own complacency. How many men have died for the freedom that Romney is stealing while most the “patriots” whimper that he’s the best we can do?
“Take up the battle with the foe. To you from failing hands we throw the torch. Be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die we shall not sleep, though poppies blow in Flanders Fields.”
Every soldier who sacrificed for the blood-bought freedom of religion in this country is rolling over in his grave, wondering if we will carry the torch he died for, or if we will trample it underfoot on the way to a rally for Mitt Romney because we couldn’t muster up the courage to continue the fight.
I am sickened.
There is no way in heck I am going to break faith with all those who have died defending the freedom of religion. No way. AS long as there is a candidate still in the race who honors that freedom I will be fighting for them - regardless of whether I believe I can win, but because my love for those who have gone before will not allow me to do any less.
God bless you for your love of God and Country, at great cost. Morning in America is now replaced with mourning for America. It is our burden and it has been assigned to us by God. We can do this. We can carry it.
Thank you for your rightous anger, your inspirational words and mostly for your right witness.
YOU should sleep well at night, not disheartened entirely, because YOU are defended by good angels and you are not defeated.
Great, great post. Rita.
