We Need To Reclaim Our Freedoms

with one comment

The Baby Boomer generation has always known freedom. We learned it at our parents knees. We heard about it on the nightly news. We heard it in our schools memorizing the Pledge of Allegiance, listening to the tales of the Pilgrim’s flight for religious tolerance, little George Washington chopping down the cherry tree, and Abraham Lincoln walking to school. We celebrated George Washington’s and Abraham Lincoln’s birthdays and Flag Day. We loved watching the parade culminating in fireworks on Independence Day. We bought and sold poppies on Veterans Day that we could proudly wear for a quarter. We rehearsed and acted in Thanksgiving plays.

Thanksgiving Class 1957

Whether these tales were folklore, patriotic recreations or parochial myths, we were reminded often of our country’s struggle for freedom.

We remember World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. We remember the draft ending in 1973. We remember hearing about the Holocaust from our parents and grandparents. We know families who lost brave siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins, parents in wartime casualties.

We were educated through cartoons at the matinees and on Saturday mornings. Hollywood reminded us of our great heritage as the world’s freest republic. We knew what democracy meant.

Our children will not be as fortunate unless we, as parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, godparents tell them, unless our schools remind them, and our churches pray for our country’s soul.

Do you remember this 1948 cartoon? Please show your grandchildren. Our democracy is being slowly destroyed bill by bill by a weak and ignorant Congress, criminal, Communist, and racist Czars who have no accountability to anyone but the President who has his own agenda.

Come to Washington DC on Saturday, Sept 12th. Please speak up and out! We have to run those who hate America out of town, out of DC, out of our country. If you don’t speak up, your children and your grandchildren will learn Socialism in school.

A chilling thought isn’t it? Children educated to obey and “jump” on blind faith… “they would only have to jump to their death if it was absolutely necessary.” Who sends children blindly and faithfully to their deaths in the world today? [More of the 5-part series on Nazis and children]

Not possible in the United States? It could happen in a blink of an eye. Think I’m paranoid? Here’s what Obama is planning and what currently happening in our American schools.

Blue Is The New Brown

UPDATE: Obama’s Goals in talking nationwide to students on Sept 8th. Classroom activities for K – 12th grade.

Come to the March on Washington, DC on 9-12! Let them know the Mob is coming!

  1. The harm is the precedent. It smacks of “Dear Leader” mentality. Isn’t it enough we have to see his picture everywhere? Listen to the fawning of the post-truth media? The fact that this president addressing all the schoolchildren raises such suspicions would make Caesar’s wife laugh as she finally passes the mantle.
