Odd. Very Odd.

Odd.  Very Odd.
After George Washington defeated Cornwallis at Yorktown, the British army stacked their weapons and as they did so, their band played, “The World Turned Upside Down.”  Indeed, it must have seemed that way.  The most powerful nation on earth had been defeated by an upstart rag-tag band of American patriots.

That particular tune, “The World Turned Upside Down,” would be an appropriate ditty to play at the White House today.  No, I’m not referring to the election of an African American President.  All Americans can celebrate the goodness of a nation that cares not a whit about the color of one’s skin, but only about the quality of one’s character (to paraphrase Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.).

No, the reason it’s time to play the song, “The World Turned Upside Down,” is because of the incredible, almost laughable decree of the Obama Department of Homeland Security that those who oppose abortion, support the right to keep and bear arms, have served in combat fighting those formerly called terrorists, and who believe in limited government and maximum individual freedom, should be considered as domestic terrorist threats.  In other words, those who still believe in the principles and values of our Founding fathers and who have been willing to put their lives on the line to defend our nation are now labeled as potential “terrorists.”

And out of the other side of their mouth, this Administration tells us that Islamic radicals are no longer to be referred to as terrorists.

At minimum, this is odd—very odd, indeed.  It is silly to the nth degree.  And it is dangerous.  Apparently, under the direction of President Obama, the Department of Homeland Security is now taking the focus off of real terrorist threats, and directing it toward their political enemies.

The response of National Commander of The American Legion, David K. Rehbein, struck exactly the right note when he said, “Americans are not the enemy.”

Indeed, American patriots who love freedom and cherish our history and traditions should not be labeled as terrorist threats.  And to set the record straight, the NAZI skin heads that are always thrown in with conservatives are really on the left, unless NAZI no longer means National Socialist as my dictionary says. 

There is no threat from those who believe in the rule of law and minimum government, who oppose infanticide and abortion, who believe in the right to keep and bear arms, and who have put their life on the line to preserve freedom, unless it is a political threat to the top-down control of the lives of every American that is posed by the overreaching of the Obama Administration.

May their time in office be short and the damage they do be minimal.  May real patriots in the mold of Ronald Reagan once again be elected with the understanding that they are to serve and the American people are their masters.  May we have leaders in public life who understand that a nation comprised of free and unencumbered citizens know best how to run their own lives.
Let Freedom Ring!
