Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance. They are the ones who have brought this great nation down. I write only for the benefit of those who possess the courage required to restore our birthright.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH...A GIFT OF GOD?


Free Speech! Earlier today I saw a comment in a group that read..."God given right to free speech". I must dispute that premise. Many men died during our Revolutionary War for the right to speak freely. The concept later spread back to Europe and became implanted as a doctrine of civilized men. Now it is being taken away, not by God, but by the powers that be that once tolerated this freedom. Throughout history, until 1776, people were allowed to speak if it did not offend the monarch, the Caesar, the king, the Emperor, or the church. Free speech is not a gift of God. It is a concept born of the philosophers of the enlightenment, implemented by the Founding Fathers, and paid for with the blood of a people who were mad as hell vowing not to take it anymore.

Free Speech is a gift born, not of God, but of fighting men. and passed on to their young, in hopes that their offspring will possess the same courage as they. As Ronald Reagan so nicely phrased it ... "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

At my age there is no danger of one day telling my child and her children what it was once like in the United States. That sad heritage will fall upon them.

Today I posted the following on my Facebook wall:
"Savor the triumph though it a hollow one be. A Progressive, whether he has an R or a D by his name is still the enemy of freedom. Vote em In."
Breitbart ... October 31, 2014
TEA PARTY SUPPORT MAY PUT GOP OVER THE TOP IN 'THE HOLD YOUR NOSE ELECTION OF 2014'
They laugh at us!
Excerpt:
From Kansas to Kentucky, North Carolina to Alaska, Tea Party supporters who saw their endorsed candidates lose to establishment Republicans in U.S. Senate primaries are holding their noses as they prepare to put endangered Republican candidates over the top with their votes in closely fought U.S. Senate races.

Let us do a brief analysis on that excerpt, beginning with the phrase 'Establishment Republicans'. You know what these people are. They exist with no purpose other than to rule. Recently a friend posted a quote from Daniel Webster. It well describes 'Establishment Republicans':
There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.

This group of politicians have not met with public approval but they do meet the standards of Grover Norquist, the Muslim Brotherhood, illegal immigrants, and Hussein Obama. Now I watch in abject horror as conservative Americans pin their last hopes on these the Progressives of (R). The people's choices have already been crushed by these 'leaders' who have met with approval from the powers that be. Let me remind you that (R) is simply and abbreviation of RINO.

Back in 1958 a book was published entitled 'The Naked Communist' discussed in my essay 'Americans Want Communism Part Four' found below in Suggested Reading. That book contained a bold outline for the take-down of America in a format of forty five objectives. It is proceeding according to plan and for the purpose of this essay I should like to point out item number fifteen: 
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
Admittedly they have done a remarkable job, with total control of the Democratic Party and a working majority in the GOP.

Americans are sadly mistaken in their belief that we only have two choices, (R) and (D). There is a third choice that none wish to embrace. Reagan said of our utter dependence on hoping that someone else will make things right for us. To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will.

We all know by now that the only difference between the (R)s and the (D)s is their rhetoric. They vote much the same. That third choice that I spoke of is the same one made by the men at Lexington, Concord, Bunker Hill, and Valley Forge, but then they were a far different people than we. They believed that freedom was worth fighting for. We choose to 'Vote em In' while complaining our rights are being taken away. They are indeed being taken away but only because we allow it.

A man unwilling to die for freedom may well live into an old age, but in one form or the other, he will live in the shackles prescribed by his overseers.

Look at the election of 2012. All conservatives running for the Presidency were crushed by a shill who referred to Obama as 'A nice guy" and when the rigged election was over none rose in protest. Not one gathering of angry citizens on one street corner anywhere in America. Well, we're gonna show em this time! We may well take the Senate and fill it with Obama approved progressives, but we'll show em.

You really should read what Rush Limbaugh and I have to say about the coming two years; found below in 'The Great Voting Machine Tease'. Like Rush says, “As far as Barack Obama is concerned, he doesn’t care who wins the Senate.”

Further analyzing the above excerpt; the part about the close Senate races. My God! Anyone with the intellectual capacity to tie his own shoestrings knows that this country is in serious trouble and for those Senate seats to be so hotly contested means that half of our people are devoid of any semblance of morality or patriotism. That condition heralds the fall of any nation, large or small, weak or strong, benevolent or corrupt. In short it really matters not who wins. The only difference will be the rhetoric and John McCain's defiant speeches on Fox News. The outcome is predetermined.

I shall close with one more quote from Ronald Reagan and leave it to you to determine if we have lived up to the Great Communicator's aspirations:

Let us be sure that those who come after will say of us in our time, that in our time we did everything that could be done. We finished the race; we kept them free; we kept the faith.

  1. to suggest the communists have "a working majority" in the GOP shows a narrow understanding of communism and an equally narrow view of conservatism. Free speech is God given because our Creator gave us free will and the capacity to express that free will ............

    1. As Huxley said- First prove that God exists, then we can talk about what is God-given. Men exist, but noone can prove that God exists. So it is more likely that man gave himself freedom and that God is a fiction. It is man that decides what is good and what is bad. Morals are man made.

  2. Pat Caddell tells us that "Higher orders from 'Other Masters' prevent the GOP from running against Amnesty."

  3. Freedom of Speech stems from Freedom of Thought. Both are rights/responsibilities that God gives an individual. They can be protected by men willing to fight, but they are not granted by men willing to fight. Washington and the Continental Army didn't grant me any rights, though they did help end England's abuse of those rights.

    War is not the only way to end the abuse of God-given rights. The Civil Rights movement ended the systematic abuse of the God-given rights of black people in America without starting a war. The 15th and 19th amendments to the US Constitution ended the systematic abuse of women's and minorities' right to vote. War is the worst and most expensive way to end the abuse of your rights, so much so that the founders were willing to suffer great abuse before being pushed to war by England.

  4. Quit pinning your natural rights on an imaginary diety who you naively believe will swoop in to save you or vanquish the tyrant. Free will comes from man alone, born of our evolved brain and nurtured by the inherent knowledge that each man is his own master. Perpetuating the belief in an invisible bearded sky zombie and his omniscient daddy only keeps the myth alive: put away the fairy stories and think for yourself!

    1. Anonymous, Jedmunda above disagrees with the premise I set forth in my essay. That is his or her right...As Voltaire told us: "I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it." Ridicule was not part of the writing of the Constitution. Had it been present among those Founders that Constitution would not exist today. Saul Alinsky wrote that ridicule is man's greatest weapon for against it there is no defense.
      The essay that follow's this one is a reader's rebuttal to my views and I gladly published it. I did not change his mind nor did he change mine, but he disagreed with me in a very respectful manner, and I honored his right to express his own opinion to the point that I chose to publish thoughts contradictory to my own.
      Ridicule has no place in any intellectual exchange.

  5. As I read this blog I find myself wondering just what in the heck I’m doing lingering here. And whatever happened to “PLEASE STAY ON TOPIC. BE POLITE” in the comment section? I thought this was a format of intelligent give-and-take. Really?

    Well, from the lips of “Soothsayer” comes, “As Huxley said- First prove that God exists, then we can talk about what is God-given.” (In other words . . . Don’t give me your opinion.) Then follows from Anonymous: “Quit pinning your natural rights on an imaginary deity….”

    First of all, let me say to Soothsayer and Huxley: Prove to me that God doesn’t exist, and then we can talk about what is God-given! Second let me say to Quit pinning your rights Anonymous: Your slam at “jermunda” was rude, inconsiderate and typical of an elementary school yard bully. And it was clear that her remarks about the right of free speech coming from God struck a nerve close to your brain.

    I won’t attempt to broach the subject of quantum physics or the God thereof. I will simply address your stated premises ___ from Soothsayer’s comment that, “God is a fiction. It is man that decides what is good and what is bad….” and the insightful comment from Anonymous that, God is “an imaginary deity….” (And all of this over the foundational belief that man has been given rights by a supreme being.)

    “If there is no God, who then defines good and evil? For when there is no God there is no definition of good and evil .... evil is good and good is evil. To be an atheist and tout that one can define good and evil becomes pure pragmatism … there is no RATIONAL answer. Dawkins himself made the comment once that he wondered if there was actually such a thing as evil. Freedom can’t be explained without good and evil and without them there is no reference point of meaning. Without meaning one can NEVER put any of this together for he can NEVER define meaning without 2 things ... sacredness and love. Impossible. The American astrophysicist, Robert Jastrow, head of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center once stated that, “It’s about time that we stop playing this game of matter and naturalism. It does not have the answers.” Ravi Zacharias (Also see Jastrow’s book, "God And The Astronomers")

    One last thing. It is quite evident that respect was lacking in comments made here and I have noticed that almost every time an Atheist takes the floor that anger arises and catty remarks emerge. I find myself wondering why. Also, I don’t really have a great deal of respect for anyone who hides behind pseudonyms like “Soothsayer” (really) and “Anonymous” I figure “Troll” is more the appropriate term.

    I leave with you a taste of a brilliant apologist but I doubt that you will ever view it.

  6. What I posted previously regarding “A Reader’s Rebuttal” and “Freedom of Speech . . . A Gift of God”:

    Danny, you stated, “Free speech is not a gift of God. It is a concept born of the philosophers of the enlightenment, implemented by the Founding Fathers, and paid for with the blood of a people who were mad as hell vowing not to take it anymore. Free Speech is a gift born, not of God, but of fighting men . . . .”

    Rex stated, “All rights do come from God, but it is up to man to secure them. Thus we fought for what God provided to us, but fighting to secure it did not create the right. Speech is only an extension of one's thoughts, and no law or government can eliminate thoughts.”

    It appears to me that the “philosophers of enlightenment” derived their concepts of freedom from scriptures . . . scriptures which indicated that their God is a deeply personal God that involves Himself with His people. He “set men free” and “gave them a gifts,” of which freewill was one. I believe Rex’s statement to be true; “All rights do come from God but it is up to man to secure them.”

    Now, if one believes that God is not a God or Father of the individual, but solely a God of the universe and the collective mass of mankind, then he would have to surmise that free speech is merely a foreign concept. He would also have to assume that there are no individual rights. None. And, if he believes that God doesn’t exit, then he would have to also believe that there are no moral absolutes and that man is free to make his own rules and impose his own tyranny on whom he chooses.

    This nation was built by men who believed in founding principles which were based on the “unalienable” or “inalienable rights” of man, given by an Almighty God who had endowed men with certain freedoms.
    “The entire American political experiment is based on that unique premise. No other bulwark exists to safeguard the natural rights of human beings except Divine sanction. Remove God, and you also remove all claims to liberty, rights, meaning and purpose.” (Inalienable Rights.Org)

    Because of this unique “experiment” there has never been such a country as America and will never be again.

    “For freedom did Christ set us free: stand fast therefore, and be not entangled again in a yoke of bondage.”

  8. Repeal the 17th Amendment and have the state legislatures elect senators. The way it is now, it's just the house of representatives except the power is concentrated into 100 people and are beholden to the voting public and not to the state governments, which is why the Fed govt. now has all the power and the states have to go them hat-in-hand for virtually everything.
