Ok, I don’t write many diaries because I’m not very good at it and, frankly, don’t have a lot of extra time on my hands, but recently I feel compelled to express some things that have been too outrageous not to comment on.
First of all, in light of all the comments from Van Jones, Robert Reich, Anita Dunn(H/T Moe Lane*), Kevin Jennings, John Holdren, and Obama himself (among many others), along with the push for socialized medicine, one would have to be practically blind NOT to see the direction in which Obama is herding us. Yes, it’s a scary thought, but but also an extremely absurd one if you know the America I know.
See, apparently, Obama has been living in his elite world of pansy-tailed, yellow-bellied, power hungry, delusional, lobster and filet mignon- eating morons for so long, he has forgotten that there are people in this country who are actually DO have principles and are willing to fight for them. If he (not likely considering how much time he spends admiring himself) IS aware that we exist, he seems to believe that we can be steamrolled and bullied into submission. Not likely.
There was a recent Gallup poll conducted that stated that more people in Alabama identified themselves as conservative than in any other state. I happen to live in Alabama. I know this to be true. I was born and raised in south Georgia and the same used to hold true there as well. We’re the “bitter God and gun clingers” Obama was referring to on the campaign trail. Well, we do happen to like our second amendment rights down here and yes, most of us love God. Last time I checked, it was a free country and we were allowed to do so. Both of my grandfathers and my husband fought for our freedom and we darn well plan on remaining free. However, it’s important to note that while there are definitely more conservatives in the south, there are patriotic Americans all over this nation who would gladly give their lives to defend the country they love–many of them already in the military.
I’ve never in my life been a conspiracy theorist or even a political guru, but what I DO know is that one cannot ignore the fact that something is brewing in our government that is inherently anti-American. We all know that the government doesn’t like to let a crisis “go to waste“, so what will be our next crisis and what will they try to push through that they didn’t think they could before? (Rhetorical)
One of my favorite songs is “Don’t Tread on Me” by Metallica. It is dedicated to the Gadsden flag. For those of you who aren’t familar with the song, read the lyrics–there has never been a more perfect song for the tea party movement, IMHO. It also embodies perfectly the attitude that I and my fellow patriotic Americans feel toward an oppressive, underhanded, manipulative, deceitful, totalitarian government. It won’t happen. Ever. Not in America. Got it?
So, to recap–I love my country and I know that there are millions of other Americans who feel the same way I do about her and are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure freedom and liberty for us and our children. Anyone who believes otherwise should REALLY take a closer look around. Better yet, pay a visit to Alabama. We’d be happy to show ya what a TRUE American thinks and talks like (and it ain’t like Obama or his czars).
*I’ve never cited anyone’s diary entry before, so I hope I did this right. If not, please forgive. I’m new to this.
