The bitter Pill

 

 

In today’s backward society where we continue to take medication that comes with a warning label that clearly states “The side effects could be worse than your initial medical problem”, is it really a surprise that our Political scene seems hell bent on overdosing America with the bitter pill of Socialism?

America was built on the belief system that All men are created equal, that All men are granted certain freedoms and that no single person should govern the rights of others. “The Bill of Rights is a series of limitations on the power of the United States federal government, protecting the natural rights of liberty and property including freedom of religion, freedom of speech, a free press, free assembly, and free association, as well as the right to keep and bear arms.” wiki

 As Lady Liberty stands, She holds the tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence. A broken chain lies at her feet.

 This poem inscribed upon the stones...

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Emma Lazarus, 1883

 

 

One line stands out above the rest

"keep ancient lands your storied pomp" this line is Lady Liberties way of saying that those immigrants who will be arriving in America will be leaving behind all the legends and history of their old countries.

 

The idea that Americas Freedoms are granted to all, is without a doubt the deciding factor to all who choose to reside within our Republic. But, to assume these Freedoms come with no responsibility or no action on their part is absurd.

 

 

Phyllis Wheatley

 

    One century scarce perform'd its destined round,

    When Gallic powers Columbia's fury found;

    And so may you, whoever dares disgrace

    The land of freedom's heaven-defended race!

    Fix'd are the eyes of nations on the scales,

    For in their hopes Columbia's arm prevails.[7]

 

(Phillis Wheatley (1753 – December 5, 1784) was the first published African American poet and first African-American woman whose writings were published)

 

 

Columbia? Why Columbia? The powerful symbolism used in these two famous poems, invokes a clear picture of what America offers to those residing in her lands.

 

 Etymology

Columbia is a New Latin toponym, combining a stem Columb- based on the surname of the explorer Christopher Columbus and an ending -ia, common in Latin names of countries (e.g. Britannia "Britain", Gallia "Gaul"). The meaning is therefore "Land of Columbus."

Columbia (pronounced /kəˈlʌmbiə/) & (kuh-LUHM-bee-uh), is a poetic name for the Americas and the feminine personification of the United States of America. It has inspired the names of many persons, places, objects, institutions, and companies in the Western Hemisphere and beyond.

And so I ask, Where is Columbia? And What has happened to the Great American Dream? Have we become so complacent that we are unaware of the change in our very definition of freedom?  In a word, Yes! We have stood by idly watching while our “Great Columbia” has been clothed in the robes of government deceit. Yes, we are aware, just as we are aware of the warnings on a bottle of medicine, yet we will test fate and swallow the pill.

 

Much corruption has been hailed in the name of progress. I believe that under the guise of free market enterprise, under the guise of opportunity, we have become blinded to a very narrow focus. That focus, my friends, has turned from a focus to better life for All, to a focus of a better life for ME! We are the ME generation! While we were so busy “earning” a better life, all personal values that once defined us a citizens have been pushed aside, in the name of designer labels. If you think this demise was an accident, think again.

 

How do you take down a Country? By simply breaking down the core values of its peoples, it is truly that easy, so easy in fact, that as they hold the very Constitution of our Great Columbia in contempt, few will speak out against her ultimate demise. Because we forgot! We forgot the blood that was shed to forge these freedoms. We easily forget the blood that spills today in the name of our Freedom. We completely ignore the possibility of ever loosing what we take for granted!

 

 

Our society has been in the slow process of change for many years. There is no one person to hold liable, rather it is the force of those who believe themselves to be in a higher position over others. “Elitists”, if you will, whose arrogance leads them to a desire to rule over others, because you see, “they” know best what we deserve. In “their” eyes we do not deserve much! This is the same mentality of ancient barbaric rulers, whether in the name of religious practice or just plain ego. There are many such forces of evil at work today.

 

We have lost our way. We have lost sight of our ultimate purpose. Freedom for all mankind. But, the main question remains, how do we protect that which is so elusive? After all, one cannot grasp freedom in one’s hand; it is not a tangible thing. How do we hold true to a belief?  The answer is again very elementary, “A Belief is the psychological state in which an individual holds a proposition or premise to be true ...” We simply have to Believe! If we believe that we live in the Greatest Nation on this Earth, that we enjoy God given Freedoms found in no other Country, how then can we possibly allow its demise?

 

There are those who would question the motives of freedom, to them I say read this line again.

 

"keep ancient lands your storied pomp" this line is Lady Liberties way of saying that those immigrants who will be arriving in America will be leaving behind all the legends and history of their old countries.

 

This IS AMERICA! LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!

Live our “way of life” or go back from whence you came!

 

Take the “ME” and put it back into A”ME”RICA!

Better yet- add the “I can” back into  Amer”I can” !



Who “Me?” Yes, “I CAN!”   Then we would once again be AMERICANS!

 (Thanks JB!) 

 

 We the People are responsible!
