This 4th of July, The American Catholic has put into words, ever so eloquently, the true meaning of the day.  http://the-american-catholic.com/2010/07/04/time-god-and-the-declaration-of-independence/  A happy 4th of July to all.

“We are destined for Eternity but in this life we live in Time, which consists of the temporal trinity of past, present and future.   The present consists of an often confusing series of disparate events, while the future is a deep mystery to us all.  When we recall the past we try to make sense of it all, giving order in our mind and our recollections to what has happened to us individually and collectively.

When we look back at the events leading up to the Declaration of Independence from our vantage point of 234 years in the future, everything seems neat and orderly, an old story that we recall from school, books, television and films.  Perhaps to some of us it seems a bit trite and boring.  Such was not the way it all appeared to the Founding Fathers.  For them it was their present, and a chaotic present it must have seemed.  On July 3, 1776 the day before the Declaration was adopted by the Continental Congress, a huge British army of some 30,000 men, all regular troops and superbly equipped, began landing on Staten Island.  To oppose them, Washington could only gather together an army of 10,000, many of them untrained militia.  In the ensuing campaign, Washington’s army would be beaten time and again, often coming close to destruction.  The British would seize New York City, holding it until the end of the war in 1783.  So it went throughout the Revolution, with the patriots fighting an uphill battle against the mightiest empire since the fall of Rome.  At the end of the war, Washington made this observation:

“A contemplation of the compleat attainment (at a period earlier than could have been expected) of the object for which we contended against so formidable a power cannot but inspire us with astonishment and gratitude. The disadvantageous circumstances on our part, under which the war was undertaken, can never be forgotten. The singular interpositions of Providence in our feeble condition were such, as could scarcely escape the attention of the most unobserving; while the unparalleled perseverance of the Armies of the U States, through almost every possible suffering and discouragement for the space of eight long years, was little short of a standing miracle.”

Such statements as that made by Washington, that the Americans relied upon God in their hour of peril, were not rare in the Revolution.  This was symbolized in the “An Appeal to Heaven” flags frequently used by Americans during the Revolution:

One of the reasons we study the past is to help guide our footsteps as we proceed into that unknown land, the future.  The Revolution of course is a prime example that the future is always a product of what we do in the present.  The Declaration is a brilliant statement of why the Americans were fighting.  It would have just been another forgotten piece of paper, however, without the endless efforts of the patriots who fought a lopsided war to make the Independence proclaimed in the Declaration a reality.  The patriots realized however that if they depended only upon their own efforts, they labored in vain.  During the war petitions to God were unceasing, including a Proclamation of the Continental Congress in 1777 which called for a national day of prayer on December 18th:

It is therefore recommended to the legislative or executive powers of these United States, to set apart Thursday, the 18th day of December next, for solemn thanksgiving and praise; that with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts, and consecrate themselves to the service of their divine benefactor; and that together with their sincere acknowledgments and offerings, they may join the penitent confession of their manifold sins, whereby they had forfeited every favor, and their humble and earnest supplication that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, mercifully to forgive and blot them out of remembrance; that it may please him graciously to afford his blessings on the governments of these states respectively, and prosper the public council of the whole; to inspire our commanders both by land and sea, and all under them, with that wisdom and fortitude which may render them fit instruments, under the providence of Almighty God, to secure for these United States the greatest of all blessings, independence and peace; that it may please him to prosper the trade and manufactures of the people and the labor of the husbandman, that our land may yield its increase; to take schools and seminaries of education, so necessary for cultivating the principles of true liberty, virtue and piety, under his nurturing hand, and to prosper the means of religion for the promotion and enlargement of that kingdom which consisteth in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Men who are struggling in the present to build a future, do well always to seek the assistance of God who reigns for Eternity.  John Adams saw it that way when he wrote to his wife Abigail after the resolution declaring America independent was passed by the Continental Congress on July 2, 1776:

But the Day is past. The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America.

 I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

God Bless America.

Phil Berg on The Michael Savage Show talking about Obama’s questionable citizenship.  Berg is awaiting an opinion of the court and of the impression that since That One’s attorneys missed a deadline to dispute citizenshpip facts as required, Obama is not eligible as President.

http://michaelsavage.wnd.com/?pageId=2256  listen in, only few minutes long but it takes a minute to load-too many hits!  Also, forward to some friends who have no idea what is going on. 

The conversation also brings up why Obama announced he was going to Hawaii days in advance of leaving to go see his [white] grandmother if she was so sick and why not the rest of the family?

It should be no little secret that he can pick up his birth certificate while he is in Hawaii.

Based on this video, it’s no wonder the rest of the world thinks Americans are stupid.  It might be edited but it certainly proved a point as the answers are none-the-less idiotic and embarrassing. The entire world is full of stupid people who just have no idea what’s going on.   The entire world is also filled with bright, intelligent people who actually know where the Eiffel tower is and are educated enough to make the right decision in the voting booth. 

It is scary thinking that some of these stupid people will be voting in less than a month for our next President.  It is these same stupid people who pay taxes though, aren’t they?  They raise families, work, shop, and vote.  I wonder if these are the quality of people ACORN sought out to register?  ACORN did manage to register Mickey Mouse after all and did it all on the stupid taxpayer’s dime.  Just watch how fast Obama distances himself from ACORN now.

These same passerby American masses are being led to the voting booth by their TV sets and what the media has to say.  One web site http://www.untwistedvortex.com/2007/03/18/freakin-stupid-americans/ refers to Americans as Sheeples, ” (people that act like sheep) who believe everything they’re told by a religion, a government, or the mass media.”

Statements like…..If your a Catholic you should vote McCain.  Baptists should go for Obama. Are you black? Vote Obama.  White people go for McCain.  Poor for Obama, and rich folks for McCain.  (we are all a little poorer since Sept 1, eh?)  Conservatives for McCain. Liberals for Obama.  I like Rush so I am voting McCain.  No wait-I like Sean Hannity who favors McCain but then again I really like Alan Colmes so I’ll vote for Obama.  Stupid labels and stupid people who are led to believe what they are told from people they have supposedly come trust and like, their God, their government, their TV sets…..Sheeples, indeed.

Comments on the net offer intelligent reasons to vote for McCain like  I like John McCain because he has balls and on McCain/Palin. when he dies and she becomes president we can finally have someone hot to put on our money )from Amy Robinson’s Web logs http://amyrobinson.wordpress.com/ survey on who are you going to vote for and why.  I guess those answers are silly but at least some stupid Americans have a sense of humor.

“Our population is being dumbed down, literally, with Madonna, wedding cakes, crazy dogs doing tricks, people getting shot and then killing some other dude.  How can we compete as a nation when CNN, that fawning imbecile, and the other purveyors fill our heads with trivia dredged from People magazine, TMZ, YouTube, or the local police blotter? ?”  http://www.dailykos.com/story/2006/10/19/125148/65 

There are indeed a lot of reasons not to continue the Republican Regime in the Presidency, but the real reasons to vote for McCain outweigh the reasons to not vote for Obama.  Maligned questions from the last debate give little content as to who you might consider voting for.  On looks and appearances Obama has mass appeal, but the intellectualized content of his message of “spreading the wealth around” is getting lost on most Americans who have no idea the definition of socialism and its impact on democracy.  I wonder if people even know the difference?  

Tonight brings us another debate, this one brought to you by Budweiser, formally a USA conglomerate.  {my acronym for Budweiser—Because you deserve what every individual should enjoy regularly.]   This Final Face Off debate will hopefully have more information than fluff but that probably won’t happen.  From the San Francisco news http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/10/13/ED1T13G6CH.DTL  Apparently, there is a confidential agreement between presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama that is 31 pages of rules and regulations as to how things will proceed and perhaps what is off limits to talk about.  Sadly, whatever the limits are, its secret contents are secret, and have not been released.  Whatever the contents and guidelines are, they certainly influence a major aspect of the debate for the upcoming election.  There will be catchy phrases and trust me, vote for me smiles but we already know, little of what those of us with some intelligence really want to hear will not be spoken about tonight. 

Most of the reports have Obama as winning already. In the UK the Guardian Newspaper’s Headline says “Looks good for Obama so Prepare for Defeat “- http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/blog/2008/oct/14/uselections2008-barackobama “A 72-year-old with skin cancer, a bad temper and a hockey mum waiting a heartbeat away on the bench, now that’s frightening.”   Bloomberg says” -Obama is likely to pick up 364 Electoral College votes, far surpassing the 270 needed to claim the presidency, by winning battleground states including Virginia, Ohio, Florida, and Colorado, online traders say. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=anBlDxpbPJpA&refer=home .  http://www.pollster.com/ has Obama 320 to 155 for McCain. 

Polls aside, Obama’s character is suspect.  An article from the Washington Post and featured on the Philly dot com  http://www.philly.com/philly/opinion/30881014.html goes on to say “But associations are important. They provide a significant insight into character. They are particularly relevant in relation to a potential president as new, unknown, opaque and self-contained as Obama. With the economy overshadowing everything, it may be too late politically to be raising this issue. But that does not make it, as conventional wisdom holds, in any way illegitimate.”   McCain’s campaign camp in his “play nice” demeanor has not brought his less than reputable associations from The Reverend Jeremiah Wright to unrepentant Ayers.  WHY NOT? 

On mere stupidity alone, “That One” might actually get elected POTUS.
