“Would You …?” Youtube Video at:
Would you see your children
Condemned to slavery
When there was a chance
You could save them?
Would you deny them victory?
Would you deny your family freedom?
You cannot fight an enemy if you cannot see him. You have no defense if you are surrounded in darkness but your enemy controls the light. You have no options if you cannot pierce the veil of your enemy’s deceit. There is absolutely no defense if you cloak yourself in ignorance, or convince yourself that the enemy is not there. But rest assured, the enemy is lurking just outside your door and your door will not protect you or your children from him coming inside and destroying your blind tranquility that you thought was freedom. The American government is now all-powerful. They own the law and the capability to enforce it, by whatever means and they are determined to do it.
That enemy is knocking on your door right now but you don’t know it, or choose to ignore it. And if you don’t open it, the enemy will break the door down and come in anyway. They will take your children away and put them in government-run indoctrination and propaganda schools. But wait a minute! They have already taken your children away and are now indoctrinating them in government-run indoctrination and propaganda schools, or didn’t you know that? The difference is you have willingly given your children to the state and are exposing them to that indoctrination and propaganda without so much as a whimper in opposition.
Would you be a slave
In your own land
When once you were free?
Would you bow down
To tyrants like Obama
Rather than defending liberty?
Many years ago, as we entered the 20th Century, we were a different stock of people. We were defiant in our freedom and we rejected or purged what we considered infringements on that freedom. We didn’t let important things slide or look the other way like we do now. The truth is, had government instituted all the laws and restrictions it has now placed on the people of America, but they had done it 100 years ago, there would have been a revolution that would have made the American Revolution and the Civil War pale in comparison.
In the late 1700’s the government instituted a whiskey tax, which erupted into the Whiskey Rebellion where many tax collectors were either killed or tarred and feathered. In those days, violence against government agents and sympathizers was quite common when the people thought their freedoms were under attack. Throughout the years of taming the West, frontier justice was applied regularly. Scores and injustices were settled with weapons, not words, or courts.
Would you hide in the shadows
When your duty was quite clear?
Would you shrink from the battle
Because you are paralyzed with fear?
Now, the people have allowed government to become so powerful, the people fear it’s wrath. We have let frontier justice, wherein we did not fear government, morph into absolute power by government in a police state where we are deathly afraid of government. People are hesitant to raise their heads above the noise level for fear it could be chopped off, figuratively speaking of course. Our lives are comfortable and we are very reticent about upsetting our precarious apple cart. But those who fall afoul of the law through no fault of their own cannot escape the long hand of government by hiding in the shadows. They become sacrificial lambs to government’s power and those in close proximity to the victim scurry for cover, saying to themselves “….. thank God it wasn’t me“. This is equivalent to running from the battlefield while the real heroes hold the enemy at bay, or advance upon the enemy.
Is it true you are just a coward
And afraid to be free?
Do you tremble in the darkness
While on your bended knee?
Are we so afraid to defend our freedoms that we will wait until the jack booted thugs break down our door and take us and our children away because we violated some law in a million laws of which we had no knowledge? Do we fear authority so much that we now won’t question any authority? Are we not of the same lineage of those that gave their lives to preserve our freedom for the last 236 years? Does not the blood of patriots run through our veins? Or, has our collective American blood turned to jelly? We don’t think so!
Will you instead gather up your bravery
And join the fearless in our midst?
Will you save America from slavery
While shaking a determined fist?
Will you use the intellect God gave you,
And apply it to the fight?
Will you heed the haunting cry
To set our country right?
Ladies and gentlemen, we don’t have to resort to frontier justice “…. to set our country right.” The tools to win were handed down to us from our Founding Fathers in the form of a Constitution that took our natural, God-given, individual rights and codified them into the law of man. All we need is the courage to fearlessly proceed under those essential tools of freedom and restore the vision of those great men for our time and our children and grandchildren’s time, unless we cower in fear, or refuse to challenge authority because of that fear. In a Constitutional Republic, the people have the power but only if they choose to exercise that power.
The other night, as we bed down, 6 lines of a poem literally popped into our mind and we got up and wrote them down. The next day we finished the poem, lines of which we have inserted in this article. The entire poem is entitled: “Would You …..?“. In the hopes that this poem would provide inspiration to those who are on the fence about defending freedom for their children and grandchildren, we set the poem to music and a video of images of freedom and slavery and uploaded the video to Youtube. The last stanza of the poem goes like this:
So we ask each freedom-loving American,
Will you settle for chains and slavery
Or will you get up off your can,
And engage in the fight for liberty?
The question is: “Would You …..?”, or “Will You …..?”. If you don’t, you may very likely condemn your children and grandchildren to slavery.
