Give me liberty or . . .

After 9/11, America had a short burst of patriotism. A couple images blaze in my mind. Congress singing together and the streets lined with the American Flag. Things started to erode in my opinion with the “War on Terrorism.”

As a result of this new war we all faced, no one really knew where it would strike next. So we became willing to give up liberty to have security. I despise and feel violated by the TSA every time I fly. I did a Google search to see if the TSA has ever really stopped any potential terrorist attack. What I found was they will not say for security reasons. One writer said, they will not say because they haven’t stopped anything! He called it “Security Theater!” Believe me, if they found a bomb in some grandma’s shoe, we would have heard about it! I for one prefer liberty and would still fly if the TSA didn’t exist, in fact, I’d enjoy flying way more without those rent a cops! Give most people a uniform and a badge and minimal training and what you get is, well, less than desirable.

My heart breaks for the families in Connecticut. But watch now, for the sake of security more of our liberties as Americans are going to be taken away by politicians. Here is the deal. I feel much more safe walking with my wife around town after dark with my gun in my pocket or on my hip than I would not being able to have it and trusting Obama had my back! You keep your security and give me my liberty!

All through human history deranged people have found ways to kill people and that won’t stop now. Even the president said in his speech today, we can’t stop all these things, “But at least we can try!” (Code for “I want to erode your liberty further) Well, try this. Make it a prerequisite for all school teachers as part of their training for the classroom to learn how to use a weapon. Then make sure every teacher is armed. When you advertise “Gun free zone” you advertise “Crazy people with guns who want to kill innocent people welcome here!”

Here is my recommendation! Eat more chicken and buy more guns and ammo and never, ever turn them in because the Government decides you can’t have them!

We are Americans! Give me liberty or give me death!

Wake up America,

Enjoying life with my wife Gayle and our Yorkie, Zoe boy. I've come to believe life begins when through brokenness I can embrace it fully and openly. I've learned the human drama is an adventure and all of us are made of the same stuff. The Lord is the only being who knows me fully and he has an individual educational plan of life long learning for me and I'm enrolled. This blog is all about what I'm learning.
