The once great USA died last Thursday. The American Dream, work hard and get ahead without oppressive Government interference, is gone for now. What will rise from the ashes of the Obama and SCOTUS destruction?
Stop pulling others down. Pick up a flag, American or ANY of the Revolutionary War flags and shove it up the arse of the enemy in whatever manners you see best.
You need to get out of the slow lane on this Freedom-retaking-highway and get in the FAST lane.
“Can we resurrect the once Great USA?”
Maybe, but I doubt it... and if we can, it will not be done with ballots.
Was there a thread just 4 years ago entitled, “RIP: United States of America” on FreeRepublic.com? Unbelievable what has happened in under 4 years.
There are too many people in this country whose allegiance lies elsewhere. Most Hispanics, for example, and there are many. The government will use them against us. 0bama already is, with his grand amnesty plan aimed at providing free health care and other services for them, while smothering us. Mexicans are familiar with corruption, so life under our government.. It’s a match made in heaven!
America is dead and gone. The final nail in the coffin was the 2008 election of an African communist as President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. I hate to break this to you, buckeye, but theres no point hanging onto the past.
America had a great run. Remember it fondly for what it was.
The United States of America is now little more than a big land mass populated by cretins and parasites who have absolutely no respect for the military and who vote for big government to confiscate money from their neighbors and redistribute it to them in exchange for their votes. It is not an America worth defending anymore. That America no longer exists.
The parasites outnumber the hosts now, and theres no going back. The Democrats have won. Throw some cold water in your face and figure out how to grab every government dime you possibly can before the parasites gobble it all up. Every man for himself. Good luck, everybody.
I read in a book called (if my memory serves...) “A Patriot’s Guide to American History” that only a third of the colonists supported the revolution.
You might be surprised, especially when things really start to suck.
Mitch McConnell is already balking at repealing Obamatax...it's game over. Not to mention the economy is tanking again. It's over. Be prepared for the worst.
What a bunch of whiners. We have work to do.
I forgive you. We're all too upset to think straight right now.
I don't have an actual Gonzales flag to fly, but I do have a window sticker that my wife got me some time back. It's going on the truck tomorrow.
Read my tagline.
I love the Gonzales Flag, I fly it... but I also love the Goliad flag and it's meaning of "I would rather cut off my right arm than to live under tyranny".
Props to the Goliad flag.
I'm with you, friend. I believe exactly as you do, and am similarly dedicated to fighting for my America until the last breath. You're also correct that there are millions out there who feel exactly as we do. I believe with every fiber of my being that we will prevail, 'interesting times' notwithstanding.
No, our country's survival depends on the willingness of We the People to refresh the Tree of Liberty from time to time, with its natural manure or other means if available. Defeatism, or placing your faith in Mordor-on-the-Potomac are not survival options to choose from.
"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

I am truly physically ill from the UnConstitutional ruling last Thursday. Can we resurrect the once Great USA?
There *is* something we can do about that. A *constitutional amendment* may be necessary to abolish this SCOTUS newly endorsed penalty tax. It should also prohibit the Congress from using any penalty tax to coerce any activity or non-activity. It may even be necessary to more clearly define the original constitutional limits on the taxing powers of Congress.
Conservatives definitely think that this penalty tax is an assault on freedom. And I think liberals will be scared of it too when they no longer control the Senate and White House in 2013 (I hope!). I wouldnt worry too much about inaction by weak-kneed Boehner and Mitchell. With a new Republican president and a bunch of new Tea Party senators and representatives, they *will* work on passing this amendment. Or, if necessary, a majority of states can call for a constitutional convention to pass this amendment. Thats another reason to cast your vote for conservatives this November and every other election all the way up and down the ticket from your local dog catcher to president.
It might also be a good time to fix some other supposed vagueness in the US Constitution, like:
the right of the *people* to keep and bear arms, as well as a well regulated Militia;
abolishing the idea of anchor babies. Only children born of legal US citizens can automatically be granted US citizenship;
to qualify for the office of president, the person must have both parents be US citizens.
Just posting this for future reference, as yet another intriguing time/date pattern-picture.
The electors record[ed] their votes on six "Certificates of Vote," which are paired with the six remaining Certificates of Ascertainment. The electors sign[ed], seal[ed] and certify[-ied] packages of electoral votes and immediately send [sent] one set of votes to the President of the Senate and two sets to the Archivist. The Federal Register preserves one archival set and holds the reserve set subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes.
The statutory deadline for the designated Federal and State officials to receive the electoral votes is December 24, 2008. Because of the very short time between the meetings of the electors in the States on December 15 and the December 24 statutory deadline, followed closely by the counting of electoral votes in Congress on January 6, 2009, it is imperative that the Certificates be mailed as soon as possible.
We strongly recommend that the sealed pairs of Certificates be taken to the Post Office on December 15, or no later than the morning of December 16, to minimize delays that could occur during the holiday mail season. Some States may find it useful to alert their local Postmaster to the extraordinarily important nature of the mailing. When the paired Certificates of Vote and Certificates of Ascertainment have been delivered to the designated Federal and State officials, the States' Electoral College duties are complete.
These are common themes and lamentations:
The once great USA died last Thursday. The American Dream, work hard and get ahead without oppressive Government interference, is gone for now.
I am truly physically ill from the UnConstitutional ruling last Thursday. Can we resurrect the once Great USA? This election is the most important election since the beginning of our once great country.
The American Dream, work hard and get ahead...
A continuance is "the period during which something exists, lasts, or is in progress"
Which reminds me of the other comment at the top of this thread:
September 17 1787-June 28 2012
The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the United States of America.<<<
The Constitution guides American society in law and political culture. It is the oldest charter of supreme law in continuous use, and it influenced later international figures establishing national constitutions<<<
Now that all together paints quite a picture. To round up the Hebrew concordance links above, they all can be found here:
Dan 12:11 And from the time [that] the daily [sacrifice] shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, [there shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
"Election" isn't mentioned in that one, but it can be inferred from verse 1:
Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation [even] to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Eh, no wonder these themes/allegories/concepts/didactic messages slide right under the radar. Anyway, I have found it beneficial over the years to hand code my posts. It's an effective mnemonic device.
Billy Ray: What if I can't do this job, Coleman? What if I'm not what they expected?
Coleman: Just be yourself, sir. Whatever happens, they can't take that away from you.
Funny, sad and true description.
