The guiding principal and the reason so many, from so far, have come to the shores of the United States of America was, and is, to enjoy the one principal that no other country has ever been able to achieve. Not only is America the only country to achieve this principal but other countries have never even considered it much less attempted to employ it. It’s not social justice, it’s not handouts and forcibly taking from one to force upon another and it’s certainly not free housing and college tuition that brought so many immigrants to our shores.
They came for Freedom. The guiding light. The gold standard of a just nation. The reason men and women of good will and faith offered their lives, fortunes and sacred honor. Yes, it was then, and is now, for Freedom. Nothing more, nothing less.
Men, women & children left homes, families and familiar surroundings not to come to America and apply for a loan to buy a house, but to have the freedom to reach their full potential and become, yes, I’ll say it, successful. Not only successful but free to enjoy that success and pass it on to their families. Why would an Italian, a German, a Korean or any number of people from all races & cultures risk their safety and futures for a house? The idea is absurd on its face. As absurd as a man joining the military for the purpose of learning how to have good posture.
Yet, no matter how absurd this notion is we are expected not only believe but to propagate this lie as the one reason people came, and continue to come, to America. How many times have we heard the ruling class trumpeting home ownership as the American dream? No, it’s the “F” word. The word that is never uttered by the progressive thinkers of the world. Why? Because Freedom is the biggest threat to tyranny and America is the beacon of that threat. America is the last frontier for the progressive. Destroy her and all barriers to tyranny are defeated.
So let’s look at the definition of Tyranny from Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary so we understand why the “F” word is anathema to the progressive;
1. Arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.
2. The government or rule of a tyrant or absolute ruler.
3. Undo severity or harshness.
Now, let’s look at the definition of he who practices tyranny, the Tyrant;
1. A king or ruler who uses his power oppressively or unjustly.
2. A person in a position of authority who exercises power oppressively or despotically.
3. An absolute ruler.
How about Webster’s definition of the “F” word;
1. The power to make one’s own choices or decisions without constraint from within or without.
2. Civil liberty as opposed to subjection to an arbitrary or despotic government.
3. Personal liberty as opposed to bondage or slavery.
We see the differences more clearly when we really understand the definitions of the words. We see more clearly why Freedom has become the “F” word never to be uttered by the tyrannical despots all over the world. A group so cowardly they hide behind the progressive fronts of the UN, NATO & the EPA, to name but a few, and the unjust rules and regulations that make all of us a criminal simply by virtue of getting up in the morning with the courage to live our lives as we see fit. We who believe in the “F” word are the enemy of tyranny.
The definition of today’s progressive thinker is best described through the medical definition; continuously increasing in extent or severity, a disease.
As American citizens we must work for the cure or face losing the “F” word to the annals of history.
