No particular place to go
Very often, when talking to Democrats, especially on subjects like Social Security and gun control, you will hear references to socialist countries ("Canada has the best health care plan in the world!" "Japan has a lower rate of gun deaths than any other country!). They use these distorted examples to try to make it sound like America, land of the Free and home of the Sheeple, should adopt these principles and governmental control. Of these people, I ask only one thing: If these other countries have the right idea, and America is so wrong and so oppressive, why don't you leave?
The answer is simple. America stands for real freedom; freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from the government, freedom of Self. Rather than extend that freedom to other countries, who would, most likely, see the error of socialism and mend their ways, they want to bleed this idea of governmental dependency into this, our Capitalist constitutional republic.
If America becomes every liberal's wet dream, what is left? Where will those who still believe in the American Dream reside? There is no other America
. This is all we've got, folks. Liberals can run away to Canada if they like the health care that much. They can go to China for real Communism in practise. You want socialism? Try Sweden -- as long as you don't mind spending 65% of your paycheck in taxes. More gun control? Japan has that, and more fecal porn than you can shake a stick at. But show me another country that even comes close America.
Show me another "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."
Show me another country that preaches absolute freedom of religion. Granted, we've run a long way from where we started. Think of that as "national regression".
Show me another country that preaches freedom of speech. Do you honestly think that the Declaration of Independence just made King George III only a little bit miffed, but instead of retaliating he sat around twiddling his thumbs humming "Kum Bah Ya"? These people, our forefathers, signed away their very lives to defend our freedom, freedom from an oppressive regime. England sure is great today and lord knows I love Tony Blaire, but winning America's freedom wasn't a walk through the tulips. Our founding fathers understood that and did it anyway. Show me another example of that kind of courage and dedication to freedom.
To everyone who would change America and drag her even farther into a pit of governmental dependence, I ask only a few, simple things. Firstly, read the Constitution
, the Bill of Rights
, the Declaration of Independence
, and any history book with more references to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson than to Bill Clinton and Al Gore. If you still think America isn't worth preserving, then I ask that you please leave. Go to Canada. Go to China. Go to France, they'll love you there. You're not worthy to salute the flag, or pledge your allegiance to her. And, believe me, we'll get along just fine without you.

"Finally, CBS is doing the right thing about "The Reagans."
Now, this really boils my butt. Figuratively speaking, of course... my butt has most certainly not been boiled, nor has it been flambéd
, broiled, sauteéd
, fried, grilled, or baked.
has excersised way more restraint and poise than I ever would have been able. If someone had slandered my father the way they did hers, heads would roll, and I'm not being figurative this time. And it wasn't my father who pulled America out of the gutter, dusted her off, and set her on the path to a new and brighter future. And it's not my father who's dying in the most horrific way imaginable; being killed, slowly, by his own brilliant mind. Her and her mother are being so strong, I don't know what to say about them other than they are the embodiment of the Strong American Woman: feircely proud of her country and all who support her, and against any who oppose her, period.
And what do people say about her? What do people say about Nancy Reagan? Nothing. The focus of this whole thing has been on Ronald Reagan, a man who can't even defend himself. Yeah. Really brave of them to pick on a man DYING OF ALTZHEIMERS. The screenwriters must have been the kind of kids who pulled the wings off flies, and glued ants to the pavement, too.
These women, these brave women, these American women, have stood by their beloved husband and father from the beginning. Where is their metal? Where's their appreciation? Where are the cameras and the grants and the support from the media and every channel other than FoxNews? In the minds of liberals, it's in the garbage, along with Ronald Reagan's proud and strong legacy.
Well, Nancy and Patti, you'll always get a salute and a God bless you from me. You two deserve more laud and appreciation than any slime-ball, low-bellied immasculine pansy who feelds the need to pick on an enfeebled man and his family. How dare they slander not only his good name in an effort to force our children to believe their lies about him, but to slander your whole family makes them worthy of nothing less than vilification. How dare they.
