What others see plainly, we often are blind to or just ignore.
something to think about...
When I was about 9 years old I remember
asking my dad about Castro . I asked, "Is Castro a good guy or bad?"
Dad said...he couldn't tell!! This was
about 1955. We were living in Louisiana ...at the time. Dad was in the Army
and stationed there.
Cuba was fairly close and in the news a
lot. The Cubans were asking the same question! Ike was president.
This past July 4th, we had the pleasure of
sharing a summer barbecue with a refugee from Cuba . Our dinner conversation
was starkly different than most.
This refugee came to the United States as
a young boy in the early 1960's. His family was more fortunate than most, as
they were able to bring a suitcase and $100 when they fled Castro's newly
formed revolutionary paradise.
Our dinner consisted of all-American fare:
hamburgers, potato salad, fresh ears of sweet corn and watermelon. This is a
menu shared with family and friends nationwide...while celebrating the birth
of our beloved America ...on the Fourth of July.
We began with a simple discussion about
our country, and the direction it has taken since Barack Obama came to
power. We shared the usual complaints about the sour economy and liberal
social engineering emanating from the rulers in Washington .
But then he said it. The sentence flowed
naturally from our refugee guest. I assume it was unplanned. But it carried
the weight of a freight train. "You know when Castro took power, none of
us knew he was a Communist".
We sat stunned. He continued, "Yes, we all
thought he was a patriot, a nationalist. Before the revolution he didn't
sound like a radical."
The comparison at this point was easy, and
I interjected, "You mean
just like Barack Obama?"
"Yes, just like Barack Obama."He continued, "We were all shocked as
the government just continued to grab more power. First they said the
revolution is over, so please turn in your guns. We all complied."
I also remember my uncle saying; Castro
will only nationalize some of the big industries. He will never come and
take our family hardware store!! But that is exactly what happened. Castro
started with the sugar mills and the large industries, but they eventually
came and knocked on the door of our family hardware store. My family had run
this store for generations. They said we now own the hardware store, you
work for us. And that four-bedroom home you own...it is now our property
too. You have to move yourself and the five children into those two rooms of
the house, because others are moving in here with you."
learned from this discussion, is a lesson most Americans refuse to hear.
Political leaders can lie about their agenda and once in office, they can
take totally unexpected turns.
If you had asked us three years ago if we
thought General Motors or Chrysler would be nationalized, we would have
never believed it. We could never contemplate a country where the rule of
law, the most fundamental building block of a justice society...would be
evaporating, just like it did in Castro's Cuba in the early 1960's.
But the news
of injustice keeps increasing; Black Panthers
are not charged with wrong doing by the U.S. Department of Justice...
because their crimes are against whites. The bond holders of GM are stripped
of their assets...without being given due process by the government; Car
Dealerships are closed without due process; Governmental leaders are bribed
in full daylight...only to have all investigation of the crimes stifled...by
the Attorney General.
The U.S. borders are overrun with crime
and illegal activity, and the leaders in D.C. act as if it is important to
protect the lawbreakers... while the innocent
are killed and overrun; When local communities attempt to enforce the
law, they are ridiculed...and threatened as racists and bigots. They are
sued by the very administration entrusted with
enforcing the law.
rule of law, the U.S. Constitution is a sham!!
Without the rule of law, our beloved America is swiftly becoming a country
where only the well connected and politically powerful will be safe. As an
author recently and so eloquently explained in her most recent book..."a
culture of corruption has replaced honest government" (Michelle Malkin).
The only way this problem will be fixed,
is by massive citizen action. All honest citizens that want to be treated
equally, must come together... and demand that the favoritism, the bribes,
the uneven enforcement of law...end now!!
And yes, it can happen if we all pull together.
PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!
And...may God save the United States of America ! *
*...the very least you can do is forward
this email. 6 million plus Jews didn't believe it could happen in Germany
either!!! If you're a Christian in these United States of America ,
you're probably next on the list. History
bares that out. Look what they have told the Catholic church in the past
week about buying health insurance to cover sterilization, etc., regardless
of their longstanding teaching and moral position against it. If they get
away with that will euthanasia be next on the agenda? The real problem
here is, the boy from Cuba did manage to make it to the U.S.
Today he and we will not have any place to
escape to...except death! And, for the most part...even though I'm
forwarding this to you, probably less than 10 will even read it completely,
let alone forward on to others.
AS A COUNTRY, HAVE WE BECOME THIS COMPLACENT? WILL YOU JUST
TURN YOUR BACK AND LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES? I HOPE NOT... YOU KNOW I
DIDN'T, BECAUSE YOUR READING THIS, AND NOW I HOPE AND PRAY YOU DO FORWARD
for more pictures, stories, etc.
