Stepping on nails

As the United States Supreme Court heard the case against government controlled health care less than two weeks ago, over 4,000 freedom-loving Americans rallied in Washington DC and let their voices be heard. It appears federal government thought it could nail down its absolute control over every last corner of our lives and decisions, no matter what the people or the constitution say. Good Samaritan Ministries reports that “The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently made the final announcement confirming that federal health care regulations will be forced on citizens, even those with opposing beliefs.” But as the administration puts its foot down, it finds a lot of nails standing up in the opposite direction.

It could be that Europe has experienced some benefits along with their government-run health care. But that’s Europe. Americans don’t give up freedom for ease. Otherwise the United States would never have been born. Remember Patrick Henry. Remember our fathers who against all foreseeable odds set their firm reliance on divine Providence and won the liberty for good people to make their own decisions without hindrance.

And the voice of freedom will again be heard. No matter how hard the tyrants press the people to conform to their agenda, true American patriots will still say “Give me liberty or give me death.” And we praise the Lord for those patriots who make their voices heard to avoid the deadly “spiral of silence” before it is too late. Lord willing, the Supreme Court will have the wisdom to remember that we have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. And if not, well, the fight has just begun.

    Very well put, Michael. Nothing against Europe, it’s just that we are Americans!
