"Things are getting bad, but they are bad enough yet!
I am one of the ones still waiting. I would love to get it over with, but my current lifestyle is still pretty good. I don't want to subject my wife
and kids to any undue hardship until it becomes inevitable. "
How bad do things have to get before you stand up and do something? Do you wait til they start dragging you and your family off to a camp somewhere,
or do you wait til they get rid of the internet so we don't have any way of communicating?
Things aren't bad enough yet for ya? You mean that obama wanting fema camps "legalized" isn't a bad thing? Allowing the gov't to tell me and you
what to eat when it comes to our gardens doesn't worry you? The 4th ammendment and habeous corpus both are gone, and yet you say things aren't bad
According to the patriot acts 1&2, we can be jailed as "domestic" terrorists simply by protesting the gov't! Also, Congressman Ron Paul is already
on a right-winged extremist list, and you still think things are all hunky dory?
You say things are pretty good at your home and you don't wanna subject your wife and kids to undo harm and other things? As plausible as that
sounds, what about somebody who doesn't have a home? They lost it during the housing crash and lost their job because it got shipped overseas due to
nafta and gatt. Does your fellow man or woman matter to you at all?
When I was a soldier in the US Army, I knew the dangers of what could lie ahead for me, but I had a wife and two girls to take care of and protect.
And it felt danged good to know that I was protecting them, and many other families by me sacrificing my own life so they could live theirs!
I never knew what was going to happen to me day to day, and at the end of the day, it never mattered! But to think I was protecting people like you,
who care about nobody but themselves was okay also, for the other several million who appreciated what I and many other troops done for them, will
forever outweigh your selfishness!
While you were at relatives for christmas, me and many other fellow troops were pulling guard duty! While you were at the beach, me and others were
training on how to kill the enemy so you would remain safe!
While you went vacationing, me and others like me were TDY in a foreign country somewhere gathering intelligence so america could remain one step
ahead of her enemies and allies!
There were people like me, ready to die for people like you, and you probably never even cared! But that's okay, just keep enjoying your life, and
your wealth, for there are still many people out there who do care for their fellow man and woman. I myself don't need the military to care about my
I don't even know you but I can honestly say with a straight face that I do care what happens to you and your family, and once again, I am ready to
lay my life on the line for you and many like you. If I can make a difference for my neighbors and my children, then my life given was well worth the
cause, for I would rather die trying to preserve and bring back freedom than to get older, and die of old age as a slave!
