Posted on 07/23/2012 10:43:57 AM PDT by Dick Bachert
From Concord and Bunker Hill to Gettysburg and Omaha Beach to a killing field in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado this nation has never been short on men willing to sacrifice their own lives to protect those they love. And that is a shortage we will never face. When times are at their very worst for this nation, there will always be men who are at their very best, and so it was in Aurora, and so it will be any time people of courage must face a choice between their own safety and the survival of those they love -- and often that love extends to total strangers.
Three such men made a willful choice and their courage was no less than those who died in the sands of Iwo Jima or the frigid waters of the North Atlantic. They did what Americans do best. They answered the call of duty.
The greatest tragedy is not the death of these men, for death comes to us all and they faced theirs undaunted, but the fact they died unarmed, unable to stand and engage an assassin in a vicious one sided combat. Gone are the days when a man could go anywhere and none would challenge his right to defend himself and his loved ones. It is one thing to stand and face an enemy, exchange fire with fire, and fall in battle. It is still another to have no option but to turn your own body into a shield as death fills the air, knowing that in doing so you will die, and with your final breath praying that the one whose body you are shielding with your own will live another day.
So many see an incident such as Aurora as an isolated event and a specific tragedy. I do not. I look deeper, I peer past the trees and into the forest and see this as but a symptom of a society gone awry. Mankind, with an instinct to survive, is by its very nature an aggressive species, and no law, no misguided good intentions, and no executive order will ever change this fact.
The worst thing to ever befall this nation is the vast number of cowards who walk among us. Perhaps I should be politically correct and refer to them, not as cowards, but by the term used routinely by many others. They are the liberals [I refer to them as LIEberals, because they ALWAYS LIE!]. They rise every morning with a dread fear of life and its realities. They fear the food we eat, the water we drink, and even the very air we breathe. They are the ones who shun military service and despise the weapons that secure peace. They are the ones who seek public office so that they may force their Utopian visions on those who know that Utopia is but a pipe dream. They are the ones who criticize the patriots of the Tea Party, and embrace their fellow cowards in Occupy. It is they who have given us Aurora and taken the lives of the innocent and the courageous.
Only the invertebrates among us deny that we are on the verge of a chaos such as this nation has never known. We face a civil war of inconceivable carnage that is being promoted by the Marxists, the communists, and the Progressives. Oddly enough they are largely financed by the liberal elements of America who see patriots as the great nemesis of peace. They are delusional, always suggesting yet another compromise with evil, and they are such fools that they are not even aware that they serve that evil, as they castigate all that is heroic.
My train of thought may seem odd to some but I saw a direct connection in the deaths of these three brave men and some comments left on a few of my essays. The authors of those comments suggest doubts that we can prevail in the conflagration that will soon engulf America. They look upon our enemies, the biggest being those who hold the reins of power within the Federal Government. They count the many groups who oppose our freedoms, the unions, the communists and Marxists, Islam, militant blacks and Hispanics.
That surely does sound like a lot of people, and it is, but they are much different than we. One of the biggest difference is that they all want something for nothing, and they follow Obama believing that he will continue to take from us and give to them. Things will abruptly change when Americans lock and load and let it be known that they will no longer be the givers, that they are finally shrugging off their role as victims sacrificed to the undeserving.
Readers, doubtful that there are enough of us left with the courage to resist, remain skeptical that we can withstand the numbers of those we oppose. Let me assure you that men and women of courage can and will overcome all obstacles put before us. On 911, as the helpless streamed from those flaming buildings, firemen braved the flames and entered. A short while later, high over a field in Pennsylvania someone said "Let's roll" and they did, right into the pages of history, as they willingly gave their lives to stop another act of terrorism.
Without fail, when catastrophe strikes, America the bold will rise to the occasion as they will do once again when the need arises, and the liberal cowards among us who make so much noise about their right to free everything, will slink off to a safe hiding place until we restore their freedom to criticize us once again.
We now live in The Age of Obama and soon it will give way to The Age of Chaos for that was his purpose in usurping the power of the Presidency. He swore that oath of office with a hatred in his heart for those sacred words he parroted. His planned chaos will rule but briefly, for out of chaos comes order. That is the way of the universe, and it is the way of our species. What that "Order" is will be determined by those Americans with the courage to shape their own destiny. Should we fall short of victory then America will succumb to Marxism and sink into oblivion. If, as I believe, we triumph, we can and will rebuild America as the Forefathers envisioned it.
I don't know who Dann Jeffrey is, but he ties it all together and, despite the current madness, he predicts a happy ending. Pray that he is right!
Ping for later
Outstanding, what he said!
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
and we’ll all stay free
I don’t know who Dann Jeffrey is either. But this is an excellent piece. Maybe we need to find this guy and read everything else he has written! Thanks for the heads up!
Hoping for a happy ending as well.
