All across the U.S, average, ordinary U.S citizens are being harmed and abused by the government that was meant to serve them. But a few are standing up for what is right. A few are standing up and saying no. And that is not only how the west was won, but how we became a nation.
What we are witnessing right now is historical. We live in a time that is unique and will be remembered for many years to come. People across this nation are getting tired and fed up with the abuses imposed upon them by a tyrannical government. But none of these people are whining or crying about it. None of these people are asking someone else to lay down their lives for them. The fact is that many people around this nation are doing some very difficult soul searching right now. People realize that it is up to them to take a stand for what they believe in. No matter what the cost. Out in Oregon there is just a group of people who believe that they have tried and tried to resolve their problems with the government but without results and feel that the time is now to take back their country.
Are you willing to lay down your life? What is worse, to live under a tyrannical government and to not be free, or to lay down your life for not only your freedom but also for the freedom of your family and friends. It is sad to think, but I doubt most people are willing to lay down their lives for their freedom. People have become to selfish and self absorbed to care about these things.
Stop and think about all of the other countries around the world that are having internal conflicts and struggles. There is a huge difference between those countries and the U.S. Americans take it upon themselves to stand up and fight for what they believe in. They don’t quit because it is hard. They fight because it is right. This is a very good reason for why the U.S shouldn’t be involved in other countries fights. If people don’t take it upon themselves to stand up for what is right, then they will never learn. They will never appreciate freedom. If people around the world, not just the U.S, don’t like the conditions that they live under, then they need to take it upon themselves to fix the problems. Sometimes that means laying down your life. If you aren’t willing to lay down your life for what is right then you and your kids will never be free.
There is a war going on right now, whether you realize it or not, and you better pick a side. If you don’t you will…
