I’ve always be fascinated with Hendrix’s rendition of the Star Spangle Banner. Some may view it as an insult but deep within there appears to be a message. As each generation of Americans past it seems the connection to the American Revolution that forged our freedom fades. Baby Kilroy carries some special DNA handed-down from his patriot ancestor who fought at the Battle of Lexington and the Siege at Boston which followed. Another patriot ancestor stood side-by-side with Richard Henry Lee during the signing of the Leedstown Resolutions protesting the Stamp Act of 1765. The war was with England and the dream was to be released from the bonds of an oppressive ruling government. So here we are 2012 being dominated by a central government to the point of dictating how to educate our children at the local level. Our governor seems to represent his own political aspirations putting local control of public schools on the altar of the federal government. His action is a clear moral violation of separation of state and federal powers. No doubt he’ll put his hand on his heart facing an American Flag this 4 of July. America is being dismantle at the hands of elected officials who are only obsessed with their own political future.
Indeed we Americans have much to celebrate and cheer this 4th of July. However, America’s heart bleeds as does the bodies of those ask to defend her. Our troops spread around the world protects our freedoms 24-7 ( God bless you and protect you) and we as Americans back home must protect their freedoms guaranteed and secured by those who were there when the shot around the world was heard. When Johnny comes marching home we need to ensure his home and livelihood belongs to him not a federal and local government building Trojan Horses.
Our troops are at the front fending off terrorist while our government leaves America’s backdoor open for illegal aliens some want to call immigrants. When Johnny comes marching home he shouldn’t have to stand in line behind illegals for jobs. The real perimeter to defend American must include its backdoor and stop the flow of illegals.
We Americans standby watching American gasp for freedom and do nothing. If we really support our troops we must keep American strong on the home-front free of self-serving politicians who have no remorse for raping America and state’s rights to self autonomy.
