On This Memorial Day, Let US Ask

May 30, 2011

On this Memorial Day, more than any one before, let us ask ourselves: What did our patriots die for?

Did our Forefathers gamble their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor so that we the People might, on this day, find ourselves and our children threatened with a present and future slavery to a Congress and White House unwilling to serve us and our Constitution?

Did the boys at the Alamo lay down their lives so that Mexicans might, on this day, overrun our borders with the feigned indifference and/or secret complicity of our Congress and the White House?

Did our soldiers fight and die in numerous Wars so that a new, more elite batch of foreign tyrants operating domestically in Washington DC might rule us in our America?

Was the ultimate sacrifice made by every patriot throughout our history for nothing?

By the will of our Creator, let us redefine Memorial Day to a day when all Americans–regardless of race, creed or color–renew that historic and sacred pledge to replenish Jefferson’s Tree of Liberty with not only our blood, but the blood of tyrants, both foreign and, especially now, domestic.

How better can we the People of these United States honor the great and costly sacrifices so willingly laid upon the altar of our Freedom than to declare this Memorial Day, and every one after, not only a day of solemn and humble remembrance and thanksgiving, but also, when so necessary, a vigorous call to arms.
