Freedom is not free. It is paid with every drop of blood, sweat, and tears of our men and women who serve or has served in the armed forces.

Don't Let Politicians and the Media
Sell Our Freedoms!

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands now deserves the love and thanks of men and woman. Tyranny like hell is not easily conquered yet we have this consolation with us, the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value."

     --  Thomas Paine, American Revolution Patriot

If our founding fathers could only hear our politicians today, they would shrill at the very thought that these politicians are selling the soul of America for their own greed and power.  As we stand on the edge of freedom, we are struggling to find that peace and tranquility that many patriots fought to preserve so many years ago.  Do these words by the patriot Patrick Henry sound familiar to your patriotic ears?

"Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

These words stir the soul of Americans who have freedom burning within their hearts.  If we stand firm together, our troops who are fighting so valiantly in Iraq and other parts of the middle east will never fail.   But the evil words of the politicians and the bias media desire to tame and suppress the cause of freedom and peace.  They tell you that the surge is not working.  They say "No matter what spin we may hear in the coming days, this independent assessment is a failing grade for a policy that simply isn’t working." (Sen. John Kerry).  They attempt to use politics to change our focus on the cause. They say,  "This is George Bush's war, and he is responsible for the mistakes and missteps that leave our troops mired in a civil war with no end in sight." (Sen. Harry Reid).  

Yet, while our leaders argue and debate their own personal opinions, our troops continue to make a difference in a place where people have endured many hardships for half a century or more.  They bring hope and a chance for freedom to a people who desire to be free. While our troops make sacrifices everyday, the politicians and the media derail them by putting down the Iraqi government.  Rather than helping the Iraqi government to succeed, they seek to inflict failure on the struggling democracy to prove that their views of this war is an unjust war or a war without cause. 

The politicians and the media may cry "Peace, Peace".  But there is no peace.  The war has already begun.  Our troops are already in the fight for freedom. Why do we stand here idle and let the politicians and the media steal our freedoms and security to only benefit their own financial and political gain? What is it that they would have us do?  Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery to terrorists?  And this is exactly why are troops are in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other parts of the world!  Please, America, stand together and bear the oath of freedom.  Be the voice of hope to all those who lack the freedoms that we so sweetly enjoy.  Please raise your voice that it can be heard that we must prevail in Iraq to secure our freedoms and the security of our nation.  Please support our troops and help us win this war on terror that we all might live free in peace!

 

 

Sacrifice for free is not duty but an honor.
