It is important that Americans remember our brave history because that history, whether we remember it or not, can, does, and will repeat itself. Whether that is to our doom will be determined by whether or not we remember the lessons we learned – and forcibly taught upon occasion – in the past.
Here is a timely reminder:
The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed, and they consigned to a State of Wretchedness from which no human efforts will probably deliver them. The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the Courage and Conduct of this army.
— Gen. George Washington
Orders to his officers, July 2, 1776
The subornation of TARP – which was a piss-poor idea to begin with – to embed the Federal government in America’s Financial Institutions, the coercive purchase of much of the American Auto Industry, the Waxman-Markey American Clean Energy and Security Act (HR 2454), America’s Affordable Health Choices Act, (HR 3200) – the list goes on and on and everything in it has one commonality: they will greatly harm and possibly destroy the American national economy.
President Obama and his Liberals in Congress know how destructive their plans are. That is why each of these abominable pieces of legislation include subsidies to be paid out to offset the immediate damage that will be done if these bills pass into law.
Are Americans still Freemen if enterprise is forbidden and/or punished, and each and all must queue up for whatever “largess” the Government chooses to dole out?
