Is There Not A Cause?
Here’s a quick bit of southern humor that says a whole bunch…
South Carolina Declares War!
Pres. Obama was in the Oval Office when his telephone rang.
“Hello? President Obama?” a deep southern voice said,
“This here’s Archie down at Joe’s Catfish Shack in Charleston South Carolina, and I am callin’ to tell all y’all up there in Washington that we are officially declaring war on you folks.”
“Well, Archie,” Barack replied, “this is, indeed, some very interesting news. How big is your army?”
“Right now,” said Archie, after a moment’s calculation, “there’s me, my cousin Harold and my next door neighbor Randy plus the whole dart team here in Hooters. That makes 8 of us!”
“I must tell you, Archie, that I have one million men in my army and they are waiting to move on my command.”
“Wow,” said Archie, “I’ll have to call you back.”
A few minutes later, Archie called again.
“Mr. Obama, this war is still on. We managed to acquire some infantry equipment!”
“And what equipment would that be, Archie?” Barack asked.
“Well, we got us a couple a combines, a bulldozer and Harry’s tractor.”
Obama grinned and sighed…
“I must tell you guys, Archie, that I have 16,000 tanks and 14,0000 armored personnel carriers and I’ve increased my army to one and a half million since we spoke a few minutes ago.”
“Lawdy mercy!” said Archie, “Lemme get back to ya.”
A few minutes later, Archie called back.
“Mr. Obama, I’m sorry to say it, but we have had to call off this here war we been talkin’ ’bout.”
“Well, Archie, I’m sorry to hear that,” said Barack. “Why the sudden change of heart, if I may I ask?”
“Well, I tell you, prez, it’s like this,” said Archie. “We’ve sat ourselves down and had a chat over our sweet tea and we jus’ come to realize that there ain’t no way in hell we can afford to feed two million prisoners!”
The Freedom Movement is very strong, and gets stronger each time Washington encroaches on another liberty, another unalienable right. Some may call this new fervor of The American Spirit a “terrorist plot”, just ask VP Biden and the rest of the Progressive cronies in DC and on the tube. In actuality, the movement is comprised of simple people who would like the government to just “leave ’em the hell alone” and allow them to live there lives in the free country they were born in.
The federal bureaucracy won’t listen to such a trivial request because they are too busy pandering to the Big Money that put each one of them in their appointed seats. There are agendas to fulfill, and paybacks to be made. They have no time to listen to the American People. They only take a few minutes to make a statements like “we hear you” and “this will benefit all Americans” They then head back to their posh offices purchased with the sweat and livelihood of the American workers.
Charles DeGaulle hit the nail right on the head when he said:
“In order to become the master, the politician poses as the servant”
There are many still sitting on the sidelines who yell at their televisions every night when the see the next stunt coming out of Washington. They either hope it will get better next election or believe things will never change and we are all doomed. Regardless, they remain, yelling at the television, and do nothing.
With Israel standing at the mercy of Goliath and the Philistine army, the words of the shepherd boy David to his brothers and fellow countrymen are very appropriate for Americans who may have forgotten the worth of a people free:
“Is there not a cause?”
It is the duty of all Americans to call their government to account for the misuse and abuse of its power. The power it continually wields outside those specifically spelled out in The Constitution of the United States, the very document that birthed it. Not the document that the progressive courts are continually re-writing to justify the actions of a government out of control.
Washington has forgotten Liberty and Freedom. It is now concerned with Money and Power. For Americans to remain a Free People, we all need to look to the country’s founding, and truly research what it was that inspired the words which were penned in our sacred documents. The words which have inspired millions of immigrants to flee their own home countries to become American.
A Cause, A Mission, Determination.
