Another thought worth remembering; Thomas Paine wrote in his Revolutionary pamphlet, The American Crisis:
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”
(H/T: Jim Bender)
There are many amongst us that may be thinking “why bother – the deck is stacked”. Perhaps, perhaps not. If not, and you do not try, then the other side wins by default and; what will your regrets be on that day? If, on the other hand it is, but instead of discouragement you rally your spirits to rise to the call and those around you as well, then often, the deck that seems to be stacked turns out to be merely a house of cards.
It is your choice, and your will, that is of concern and is to be measured. It is easy to be a patriot when the sun is shining and the wind is at your back, but difficult indeed when the political winds howl against you and send shivers through your sinews and marrow. Our nation needs you – our Founding Fathers and all those that have sacrificed all are now watching and calling out to you – “what will you do? Who will you be”? Will you stand up for the philosophy that we are sovereign and free individuals, or will you bow down to the “inevitable” crush that seems to be the foreign spawned Progressive movement?
How will you be measured by your grand kids – what will YOUR legacy be?
