It has been said that we are a free people, but is this so? All these yahoos who hoot and holler about our 'military complex' and demand that there are no more wars (as if we declared global jihad), yada, yada, yada. I have used your favorite song, Imagine. Let us see just how free we are...without our Military!
I am going to write an imaginary petition which supposedly came from our military. It is not real, because our Military is too brave, too honorable, too duty bound to write something like this. But I'm a civilian. I am not. *heh*
WHEREAS many Americans are under the impression that free speech means it is alright to put our National Security secrets in print for our enemies to read and endanger our lives on the battlefields and
WHEREAS a few Americans do not like having an armed military or citizenry, even though the 2nd Amendment guarantees these rights and
WHEREAS many Americans show no respect for the Armed Services members of any generation, and they are not taught the battles, the losses incurred by this country in the name of rescuing those who could not rescue themselves, and the good we have done and
WHEREAS many Americans do not even realize we are in a global war for our very existence by people who do not care if they die trying to kill YOU and
WHEREAS only 3% of America's youths are involved in the Armed Services and our institutions of higher education are against allowing the Armed Services to recruit young people while at the same time these indocrination centers are taking OUR tax dollars and
WHEREAS some Americans think what we are doing overseas is wrong, so they try to influence the world to hate us and wonder why they do when they are successful, yet most of the countries they worried about are now run by Conservatives and
WHEREAS all Americans should first care whether or not their next door neighbor is well fed and clothed before any imaginary 'world citizens' approve of them because it is easier to think you are liked than it is to look next door and find out you are not a good neighbor and
WHEREAS the American people have spoken and said they do not want us to complete our mission, the one you sent us out here to start in the first place and where some of our brothers and sisters have given their all
THEREFORE be it declared that we, the members of the Navy, the Marines, the Army, the Air Force, the National Guard, the Coast Guard, do hereby turn over all the responsibility of your safety and well being to each and everyone of you.
DO IT YOURSELVES. There is nothing to be afraid, right? We're not fear-mongering. There is nothing to fear. Just one favor, please. When the fit hits the shan, don't come crying to us. You know so much. Fix it yourselves.
When you figure out just how wrong you were, we will come back under one condition. That condition will be that you pick up your weapon and join us this time instead of running your mouths like water while in the comfort of your warm home, your food, and your beds. Deal?
Now I know they would never write something like that, because they love this country much more than some, and they honor their brothers and sisters in a way only they will ever know.
I just get tired of Americans bashing them, and I will not stop defending them as long as I am alive. With my final breath, I shall thank them for each and every day of freedom I have had BECAUSE of them, not in spite of them.
Happy Veterans' Day from the very bottom of my heart to my toes up to the highest hair on my head. Godspeed.
[This is a repost from last Veteran's Day. I saw it when I was working to elimate over three hundred tags. I'd like to share it with you.]
May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you until you can walk along side Him again
