Of Giants Among Men

Of Giants Among Men

A Guest Commentary by

J.J. Ray

I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." This famous quote was partially used in a Second World War movie Tora! Tora! Tora! Today, however, it is so applicable. Comrade Barry Obama has thrown down the gauntlet and dared those that dearly love this country to try and stop the “Triad of Deception from destroying the Republic. It is not a time for violence; rather the sleeping patriots must rise up and fill the ballot boxes in the fall with that resolve.

There is little doubt that this country is in dire need of health care reform. The current bill however was not reform but the first step by those that hate freedom and the constitution to install socialism as a form of government. Apparently, the Socialist advocates Comrades Pelosi, Reid and their leader Barry Obama thought they could sneak it past us. Apparently, they are not students of history.

Times past teach us that the men and women who gave up their lives and property so that all of us could live our lives free from oppression has stood that test of time.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed -Declaration of Independence

Believe me, dear Sir: there is not in the British Empire a man who more cordially loves a union with Great Britain than I do. But, by the God that made me, I will cease to exist before I yield to a connection on such terms as the British Parliament propose; and in this, I think I speak the sentiments of America. Thomas Jefferson, November 29, 1775.

Who are the governed that give them their power? Why we are, the citizens of this Republic that we call America. These are not just simple few words but are words that have stood the test. They are words of Giants among men.

This emotion was the beginning by the colonists and the latter framers of the Constitution that would lead to the cessation of taxes levied by the British parliament and guarantee us freedom of speech, religion and press.

Today we are faced by another more insidious and despicable antagonist, the Triad of Deception.” They are using devious methods along with the majority in congress to strip us of our rights and install socialism. We must begin today with “Terrible Resolve” to replace those that would steal our Republic and install real patriots. Yes, it is time for those Giants among men and women to rise up one more time as Regan did and be counted.

Repeal the bill, replace it with one that really works, and recall Comrade Barry Obama. Never forget their goal, the redistribution of wealth and to convert “The United States of America into The Union of Socialist States. We hired them we can fire them. Let us start today with that resolve.
