I am an American citizen: I am not a terrorist! — Video Version

March 27, 2013 Leave a comment

I am an American citizen: I am not a terrorist!

I am an American citizen.
I believe in the ideals of our Constitution, and our Declaration of Independence.
I am not a Democrat or Republican.
I am a simple person who believes our country is dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

I am an American citizen.
I believe governments are instituted among men deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
I am not an extremist!

I am an American citizen.
I believe our Southern sister States fought for:

* the Constitution
* for freedom
* liberty as bequeathed by our Fathers to protect their homes and NOT to protect slavery
I am not a racist!

I am an American citizen.
I believe our Northern sister States who fought for the Union believed that the life of the Union was essential to the life of liberty.
That other sentiment, dear to every true American heart-Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable!
I am not a tyrant!

I am an American citizen.
I believe our Northern and Southern sister States fought with valor as God gave them to see the right in their cause.
One for liberty in the union of the States, the other for liberty in the independence of the States.
I am not ashamed of either side!

I am an American citizen.
I wish for our future generations to enjoy the freedoms we inherited from our Fathers purchased by Revolutionary blood.
I believe our freedoms are worth defending, fighting and dying for just as the patriots of old and today have.
I am not a terrorist!

But. . . .

Like every one else, I don’t understand why our elected officials are not held accountable when they commit crimes and excuse their colleagues behavior.
I am fearful our elected officials have lost their way, they no longer represent the people, but themselves.
When will our countrymen wake up and correct these errors and mistakes?

Like every one else, I never took seriously the warnings by our Founding Fathers about tyranny.
I was ignorant of our history.

Like every one else, I don’t understand why our president needs 2 billion bullets and weapons.
I never thought I’d live to see the day where a president of the United States would prepare and raise an army to invade his own country.
I am not a conspiracy theorist nor am I being paranoid, especially when they openly talk about it or are exposed for doing so.

Like every one else, I never thought I would live to see the day where American troops are patrolling American cities and towns.
Maybe I am overreacting but I have to ask, are we, the American people, the enemy? Are we at war? If so, with whom, and when did Congress declare war?

Like every one else, I never thought a president of the United States would . . .
. . .condone the deaths of an American citizen with an executive order.
. . . order the deaths of an American citizen without due process of law.

I was naive.

Like every one else, I don’t understand why our elected officials think law abiding American citizens bear arms only for deer or duck hunting.
Do they not understand or remember the history of our country? Are they so ignorant?
I am not a duck or deer hunter but will use a firearm to defend my freedom and yours.

Like every one else, I am confused. Why is Piers Morgan on a crusade to terminate our rights protected by our Constitution?
Does he not remember what started our War for Independence against his country? It was gun confiscation!
Does Piers not remember that part in history of what happened when tyrannical governments disarmed the populace?

Like every one else, I never thought our government or press would. . .
. . .deem us mentally unfit because we want to exercise our right to bear arms to defend our liberties, property and family.
. . .would deem us extremists because we question our government’s abuse of authority and are political dissenters.
Why can’t I defend my liberties, property and family or question our government?

I thought it was our obligation and right to question our government and president, am I wrong?
Like every one else, I never thought our government would deem us felons because we want to exercise our right to bear arms to defend our lives with a 30 round magazine.
What crime did I commit?
I am confused, isn’t the role of government to secure, defend our liberties and not take them?

I Am An American, I Am Not A Terrorist
Like every one else, I never thought our government would . . .
. . . .deem us terrorists because we want to exercise our right to bear arms to defend the sovereignty of our State.
. . . deem us terrorists because we hold our liberties and rights be sacred and are non-negotiable.
I am not a gun fanatic or lunatic nor do I wish to overthrow the Constitution but to protect it against all enemies foreign and domestic.

Like every one else,
I thought the role of government and jobs of our elected officials are to secure, defend and protect our liberties.
Why do people like Michael Bloomberg, Andrew Cuomo and Diane Feinstein use tragedies as an excuse to take our rights away?
Have they forgotten the oaths they have taken to defend, and protect the Constitution of the United States of America?

Now. . .

My eyes are open,
Our country is being taken from us,
I want my country back!

I look for inspiration and guidance,
I read of the days of old, when t’was the days of ’76
Where free men, young and old,
They fought and died for our freedom, our independence,
Each hero American than: brave and bold.

With the noble Stars and Stripes,
Our patriot ancestors, in triumph they appeared,
In what was called the shot heard ’round the world.
In the darkest of times, today, we call upon the memories of our patriot ancestors;
We seek their guidance as they understood their duties to be in the spirit of ’76;

To fulfill that promise 7 score and 10 years ago:
That government of the people, for the people and by the people with her Constitution shall not perish from this Earth.

I am an citizen American who loves the Constitution, our flag and our republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States;
Like the patriots of old believed our country to be;

I am an American citizen: I AM NOT TERRORIST!
