It's about time… to take INDIVIDUAL responsibility for our MUTUAL benefit..

A Valentine for America

with 2 comments

The recent Presidential election reminded all of us (in the U.S.) of the common desire to succeed – as a nation. While the discourse continues on how that is to be done picture-5– one common tie binds us together:

We are ALL equal citizens and

are promised equal privileges

under one common

Bill of Rights.

Our forefathers framed this country to ensure that those inalienable rights, under God, were never again taken away (by non-religious or even religious zealots) – or buried with the last champion who fought against such tyranny. These truths ALONE have sustained us when other hopes were faltering. Even now as politicians (formerly known as statesmen) wrestle with the latest crisis (that they also helped to create)

WE the PEOPLE

are the answer!

There was meant to be no such thing as “government” over the people

– there were only to be chosen SERVANTS of the PEOPLE!

There is no such thing as ‘government bailout money’ –

– because THAT money WAS yours in the first place!

There is no crisis that doesn’t belong to ALL of us

– and EACH of us must respond(here)…

otherwise, whenever tyranny rules

none dare call it treason!

Until your passion for YOUR own self-preservation and the good of YOUR country exceeds whatever selfish interests are being siphoned away into loans YOU are making to your SERVANTS – THEY can and THEY may also water down your rights by placing themselves in a position of power OVER you!

Only our passion for freedom

can protect our freedom for passion

and each of ‘us’ – needs to be reborn

to that patriotism that can unite all of ‘US’.

If my passion is starting to show even a little more in these words it is certainly because of a song that now plays in my mind and rings in my ears, called –

BornAgain American

It was forwarded to me and I encourage you to make that same effort

– as your next stand for freedom.

Because if we each do nothing – someone will have to go to fight the battles that defend us. Then, as on this Valentines Day and many yet to come, the hearts that take prominence may be the medallions that represent those who put their heart and soul into service – and for some who gave even their life – for ME . Then the heartbreak will be borne again on the hearts of mothers across the heartland of this great country. purpleheartinhand

So on this Valentine’s Day I am compelled to openly express my undying gratitude for those who put it all on the line for me – perhaps somewhere in a country whose name I may not know.

I am compelled to rekindle that anxious ‘crush’ I once held for my country. I want to feel again the bravery that has led many a soldier to valor and ignited the adoration of those who loved them and yearned for their safe return. I am compelled to give my heart – not to a fantasy of just hope or blind patriotism, but to the true honor of honest, transparent, and accountable action.

So until the next legislative “bill” that comes from Washington represents the Bill of Rights being equitably applied to you and me – I pledge to sound the alarm that it may be just another ‘spin’ of words – or another ‘scam’ of OUR money. I don’t need another “half-empty box of chocolates” from Washington – and I’m not going to pass any around either – since I’m not running for anything…

but I won’t run from anything…

– if you will stand with me(?).

…and may we always share freedom on Valentines Day –

and our love – with those who have brought freedom to us!

God Bless America

  1. George,
    I learned long ago that ethical behavior – any ethical behavior is political, for the spiritual and political are intertwined. Why? because at their core both are searching for ways to free the human spirit and are acknowledging the inherent value in humanity. When you get out of “power over” into power with, this fact becomes self-evident.

  2. As a Vietnam Veteran I am so proud of my country. Lately my concern is that there are too many people in Congress ready to change this country into the new Democracy and take away what so many have sacrificed to keep it a Republic. I pray that those of us that know the difference will be able to maintain what the Constitution and Bill of Rights gave us all.
