If Patrick Henry Could Speak Today — ‘Liberty or Death!’ …

464px-Patrick_Henry_RothermelThe man who operates with smoke and mirrors gave the commencement address to this year’s graduates of Ohio State. Oh, my Buckeye, how far ye have fallen. In his address he warns the students not to think for themselves and to ignore the voice of reason and sanity in this un-sane world.

Mr. pResident says; “Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner,” and, “You should reject these voices.” A few sentences later he injects a lie and declares “..we understand that this democracy is ours.” Last I checked we were still supposed to be a Federal Republic.

America needs bold voices now more than ever. Voices to tirelessly expose the lies, hypocrisy and lunacy coming from the cesspool in D.C. We helped crush a regime in Libya for a threat to use chemical weapons on the rebels. Yet this administration scrubs its own red line and changes the boundaries in Syria when the evidence seems to show chemical weapons are actively being used. Cover ups and lies and nothing less have been coming from the Benghazi investigation. Millions of people are out of work while the welfare rolls grow by leaps and bounds. The indoctrination clinics, or public schools, cater to the unions and teachers and do not teach the students. Any and all reference to God Almighty is taken down from public view while catering to radical Islam.

Where are the voices of reason? So few in Washington stand on real principle and espouse limited, constitutional government. If Patrick Henry were alive today, I imagine he would say something like this….

We contemplate and attempt to forge our future by close examination of the past. Can the policies and practice of today’s leaders be viewed in any way different than a path to subjugation? The question before the citizens of this great Nation, the United States, is “nothing less than freedom or slavery”. To once again pursue liberty, or embrace the soft tyranny that grows more callous with each passing day.

I stand and question the patriotism, worth and abilities of the gentlemen and ladies that currently occupy congress and the White House. I question to what degree the elected genuinely represent the electorate. While “different men often see the same subject in different lights”, we are at a moment in time when politically correct speech and the adherence to its destructive nature should be abolished. “This is no time for ceremony.” A debate filled with the obfuscation of language in this manner will not lead to the truth. Should we hold back our “opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense”, we should consider ourselves “guilty of treason towards our country.”

“Mr. President” and congress, “it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope.” Closing our eyes to the “painful truth”, and let ourselves be lulled to a state of indifference that can only result in accepting the tyrannical, oppressive burden our government continues to heap upon us. Do you believe us to be blind, deaf and dumb to the destructive paths being paved before us? “I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and to provide for it.”
