Did We Surrender

"The path we have chosen for the present is full of hazards, as all paths are. The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission."

John Kennedy 1917-1963

DID WE SURRENDER?

Once we traveled in a Cadillac named liberty

On the free way of life

We now are creeping steadily

On the overgrown path of strife

It comes down to the actions

Of  the subversive progressive cause

We are divided in our factions

And inundated with oppressive laws

Can we fight our way back to liberty

With the boot of government on our chests?

While we are labeled falsely with bigotry

Which leads to civil unrest

Have the many sleeping Americans

Began to awaken from their slumber?

Or will we remain the picked clean skeleton

Just succumbing to our hunger?

Will our appetite for freedom

Renew our interest to the cause?

Will we continue in the doldrums

Of the regime's stifling progressive laws?

Did we surrender because we are tired

And feel our country is broken?

Are we forever to be mired

Beneath the lies that have been spoken?

Stabbed in the Back

"Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate." JFK

STABBED IN THE BACK

As bombs are wrecking the scenery

And gunfire brings soldiers to the ground

Does our president react immediately

Or golf another round?

As children are being exploited

In their desperate northern trek

Does our leader, The Anointed One

Show the situation any respect?

Is he still dodging all the questions?

About Benghazi and the IRS

Does he pooh pooh our perception

That we are on a downward quest?

Do we fear to address our problems?

Are we bending to his regs and laws?

Are we hanging on ambivalence

Surrendering to his cause?

Is it apathy or fear?

Perhaps a bit of each?

Who will dry a patriot's tear

Once our liberty is out of reach?

Engineered Chaos

"Change is brought about through relentless agitation and trouble making of a kind that radically disrupts society as it is."

"Obama does not want unity. He wants the country as polarized and disoriented as possible."

Both quotes are from DAVID HOROWITZ’S book “BARACK OBAMA’S RULES for REVOLUTION.”

ENGINEERED CHAOS

An atmosphere of turmoil has our country infested

A country of liberty is seriously tested

Gallons of koolaide are eagerly injested

Trillions are wasted, our country detested

Scandals galore and who is to blame?

Fingers are pointed and who is to name?

It's not nearly over there's more of the same

No one steps up, no one explains

Perhaps the turmoil is only a mask

Hiding more sinister things, veiled laws to be passed

And now we are racist if questions are asked

It's We the People who are coming in last

Amid the chaos so many can't see

Scary things are happening in the land of the free

It's part of the plan that we all disagree

When the smoke finally settles just who will we be?

Engineered chaos and forced agitation

Are the tools they need to destroy this nation

Can we sit here in apathy with all our frustration

As the leader plays golf and enjoys his vacations

SIMPLY LIFE

Abe Lincoln said:

"Whatever you are be a good one."

SIMPLY LIFE

If I'm to be a hero, I'll garner the awards

If a benefactor, gratitude my rewards

If I'm just to be me I'll be the one

Who each day, with purpose, reaches for the sun

Snatching My Purpose

"Purpose...it's all about purpose because without it we vegetate and essentially atrophy into less than a footnote in history." JTD

SNATCHING MY PURPOSE

I could just be, merely exist

Or I could do and forcefully resist

I could live my life on a ferris wheel

Only occasionally at the top of all that's real

I might snatch my chances, I think I should

And rethink my purpose, I think I could

Then as my destination grows near

I will look it in the eye with faith, not fear

Little Old Me

"I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply all my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy."

Og Mandino American Author 1923-1996

LITTLE OLD ME

One small speck on the Great Wall

One lost fragment in a universe of stars that shine

That may be me to one and all

But it's not me in my own mind

Only if I let it be

Will I remain insignificant and small

In my bold heart I dare to see

Far beyond where fate must fall

So I will begin as a grain of sand

And my effort will grow me in leaps and bounds, then

With faith I will reach for God's helping hand

And I will become a mountain

Independence

Tens of thousands of brave Americans died to break the chains of British tyranny so that the principals of our Declaration of Independence could take hold and flourish in the birth of a new nation.

Jim Gerlach American Politician/born 1955

INDEPENDENCE

Astride war horses and on foot they tried

To secure the freedom earned

So many wounded, too many died

In the midst of battle they weren't concerned

They had the hearts to prevail

They had the will to see it through

From the time their fathers set sail

They knew deep inside what they must do

Redcoats sent by the imposing king

From the motherland to seize the dream

The pilgrims knew the only thing

Was to fight, although upstream

With self imposed honor and bravery

The settlers won this war

They earned the new found liberty

That they had been fighting for

And so a country was conceived and born

With a people driven by their desire

To pry themselves from England's scorn

With this conquest they were inspired

Who would think that farmers, merchants, and sailors

Could overthrow a king

But they had to risk the failure

The organized army was apt to bring

When you salute the flag, July the Fourth

Remember those who died

And imagine where we would be today

Had the settlers never tried
