Do you want corporations and their corrupt government puppets or people to control the United States and make its laws?

What light is to the eyes,
what air is to the lungs,
what loves is to the heart,
liberty is to the soul of man.

          Robert G. Ingersoll

Our founding fathers fought for liberty in the Revolutionary War – at the Boston tea party and Concord and in the swamps around Charleston;

Our grandparents fought for liberty in WWI – in the trenches, on the sea, and on the Russian front;

Our parents fought for liberty in WWII and out of fear of communism in the Cold War –  on the beaches and hills of Guadalcanal, in the streets and on the bridges of Budapest, on the seas, and via the air over Berlin;

Our brothers, husbands, and friends fought out of fear of communism – during the Tet offensive, and in Saigon;

Our children and friends’ children are fighting to protect us from terrorism and for humanitarian reasons – in Iraq and in Afghanistan;

Our grandparents, parents, brothers and sisters, as well as countrymen protested and marched for liberty in the United States during the Civil Rights Movement – at Selma, Birmingham, and in Washington DC;

Our brothers and sisters stand up for liberty, opportunity, equality, and fairness daily regarding Health Care, Home Ownership, in the Courts, and at Work – in every town, in every prison, at every job, in every health facility, in every court, and at every rural crossroads.

In every struggle and battle and in every war, there are casualties. We accept them and do not run from the fight. That’s what it means to love others more than self, to treasure not just life, but also liberty, opportunity, equality, and justice.

The least I can do is stand up forcefully for liberty and its cousin justice at home, in memory and in honor of all those that came before, as well as for all those who come in the future!

We won’t retake it if we don’t fight. That’s what it means to love thy neighbor and one’s fellow men.

I’s rather go down standing up then grovel on my knees as a slave to the corrupt police, prosecutors, judges and politicians in America.

I will continue to expose the corrupt, enlighten the public through the Internet (our great equalizer), and challenge the corrupt.

Won’t you join me – for your children and grandchildren? Send me a comment and I’ll tell you how you can help.

Patriotism Means Standing Up – Walk the Walk – Fight Corruption

PATRIOTISM MEANS STANDING UP – FIGHT CORRUPTION
With the 2008 election imminent I want to pause and discuss Patriotism. Patriotism to me is helping not just secure our country and protecting the Constitution, but ACTIVELY working on a daily and regular basis to make our country better. This means walking the walk and not just talking the talk. Patriotism is a constant war where we serve and protect our values embodied in our Constitution. Never fight a war unless you are willing to die. Yes there are sacrifices, but that is the price of justice and freedom.

In the United States ask who in the population is thought to be putting themselves on the line every day and not shirking their responsibility to their country? I don’t just mean upholding the law as an officer! I mean standing next to your neighbor, your colleague, your co-worker, your enemy – whenever and whereever the Bill of Rights is threatened. Stand up for compassion. Stand up for opportunity. Stand up for education. Stand up for justice. Stand up for those who can’t stand up for themselves.

We have failed as Americans in the last few decades by looking the other way, being only self-centered and self-interested, putting profit before compassion and justice, ignoring our neighbors, wearing blinders next to the needy, and justifying our mistakes with pat phrases. Silence and lack of action are the biggest dangers to our democracy. Transparency, action, and open debate will save us.

Please be patriotic – VOTE at EVERY ELECTION. INFORM yourself about the candidates. Please DON”T cover up corruption. BREAK the thin blue line and stand with what’s right. SPEAK OUT for those who are attacked for defending the Bill of Rights.

UNITED WE STAND – DIVIDED WE FALL!
