“When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross”…Sinclair Lewis. I do not know what this man was drinking at the time, but this is a false statement. It has been stated frequently on another blog. Think about the following statements!
This country was founded on the belief in God, and in the rights and freedoms of all people. We were also given the freedom of speech and religion. We were given the Constitution and the Bill of Rights (in writing and made into law) to safe guard those rights and freedoms. We were guaranteed this freedom of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. “In God We Trust” was engraved on public buildings in Washington, DC, and also on our money. Our American Flag and the Eagle were symbols of these freedoms. Is this fascism? Take the time to read our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and then make your decision if you believe in these laws.
Fascism or anything else you would like to call it, Socialism, Marxism, or Communism, it is all the same. And how does it come? Not by waving flags or clinging to a Bible. It sneaks in, in the dark of night clad in silken slippers, and so quiet no one hears it. It starts out slowly and eats away at the core of everything this country stands for.
Are the people attending and standing up at the Tea Parties and waving the American Flag, demanding that the government protect our rights as Americans, being un-American? I do not think so. We do not want our government intruding on our rights and freedoms. We do not want Cap and Trade that will bankrupt this country, we do not want higher taxes, we do not want government to take over our healthcare that will lead to poor quality care and rationing. Older people who have worked their entire lives and paid into social security will have their social security benefits cut, (mine has already been cut) and health care will be rationed. They will not be given good care when they need it the most. Is this how the elderly people will be treated since they will no longer be considered an asset to the government, but a burden? But yet, illegals will be given free heath care that will be paid for by the American tax payer.
Many of us are just patriotic Americans that love our country. We do not want socialism; or any other (ism) We are fighting to keep our freedoms, and do not want our rights and freedoms taken away and end up living under tyranny. If people do not like what America stands for, they can emigrate to North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, or another country that has a Dictatorship, that might be more to their liking. They will control their life and tell them what they can or cannot do, from cradle to the grave.
I am not a Republican, Democrat, Independent, or any thing else. My being an American comes first and I love the country I grew up in.
May God Bless America, and have mercy on us. Pray for our country!
