     While the 4th of July will be celebrated this week I will remember what those faithful patriots accomplished back in 1776 after the Declaration of Independence went into affect.  They fought for freedom and won.  By the 21 century American soldiers, Marines, the Navy and the Air Force continue to be used around the world in various military actions which has obviously not always been for the cause of freedom.  There have been other issues involved behind the scenes whether it be the lust of power, oil, gold or poppy fields.

Since 9/11 fighting terrorism has been used as an excuse to invade foreign countries in the Middle East.  Yet, there are many issues that now cloud this mission which has not only affected countries outside of our borders but at home as well. And by now, in 2019, the entire concept of freedom has taken a back seat to over taxation, global encounters whether it be war, climate change, environmentalism, sustainability, red tape, bureaucratic overreach or the outrageous and out of control legalism that now cuts into the very heart of freedom.

The first question I want to ask the president and all the members of congress is, why did you hate the way America was? The saying goes ‘love it or leave it’. Why are you still living here?   Why did you tell us you wanted to serve and represent your fellow citizens, then turn your back on us and our country? We did not plan or carry out the attacks on America on Sept. 11, 2001, but you have treated us like we did.”

Traditionally, the New Years holiday is marked by the hope of a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, and high hopes of a better year ahead. We make resolutions to right the wrongs in our life and promise ourselves we’ll be a better person to all the people we know, and treat ourselves better as well. But just as we were saying a private prayer that we could indeed achieve our goals, our president, the man that the entire world placed the deepest of faith, trust, and hope in, delivered a crushing, sickening, blow to our gut. He chose to ring in the New Year with a razor sharp dagger to the American heart, by signing legislation called the National Defense Authorization Act. The NDAA. The most UNAmerican, cold blooded, and brutal piece of legislation ever to cross a president’s desk. The fact that he would choose the holiday season to betray the oath he made to America and her citizens, screamed louder than words. With his signature he revealed a shocking lack of basic decency, and displayed the true feelings he has towards the country he leads. As a real American, I have some questions I would like answered.
