Patrick Henry explains Barack Obama
At a recent TEA Party meeting, I heard this quote made by one of the speakers, who had quoted an early American patriot. Although it was not used in the context of Barack Obama at that meeting, I think it is very apropos.
“Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants (i.e. Obama) forge their chains. A vitiated (poor quality, below acceptable standard in quality of performance) state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.” --- Patrick Henry, lawyer, patriot, and orator, symbol of the American struggle for liberty, 1736-1799
With the election of the current occupier of the White House in 2008, America got what the majority wanted, or thought they wanted. In another sense America got what we deserved. In 2012 we must once again remember God, if we want our liberty restored. We must absolutely reject a second term for the incumbent would-be tyrant.
