Obama is playing the patriot card in a desperate attempt to appeal to the middle of the country, the “silent majority”, that clings to guns and religion. Our ancestors clung to guns and religion, defeated British tyranny and founded this country on the precepts of their religion and the concept of freedom from tyranny.
William Randolph Hearst stated:
“A politician will do anything to keep his job – even become a patriot.”
Thomas Paine wrote:
“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 their country; but he that stands now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”
Zach Jones, a fellow blogger and seeker of truth, has a new article about Obama and patriotism. Read this article here:
