Today is Memorial Day. This is the time we honour the men and women who gallantly died to fight for the freedoms that we have today. Yet, these brave folks are looking down on what Obama and his evil minions are doing to take away our freedoms to turn this country into a socialist state and they are turning over in their graves and screaming at us “What are you doing?”

The government is in a full court press to force our religious leaders to go against the word of God so the evil Obama can ram down our throats his agenda corrupting the Christian and Jewish ideals that served to form the foundation that this country was built upon. I used the past tense because Obama, the Democrat Socialist Party, The Republican Party, the Statists and the Left are systemically destroying the morals and values that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Ben Franklin, and our Founding Fathers built this country on.
Here is the lead paragraph. “Having organized 43 plaintiffs—including the archdioceses of New York and Washington and the University of Notre Dame—to file 12 different lawsuits against the Obama administration last Monday alleging the administration is violating the religious freedom of Catholics, the Catholic bishops of the United States are now preparing Catholics for what may be the most massive campaign of civil disobedience in this country since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and early 1960s.
The bishops have noted that June 21, when this fortnight will begin, is the Vigil of the Feast of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More. Fisher was a Roman Catholic cardinal whom the English monarch Henry VIII beheaded in 1535 after he refused to act against his conscience and take an oath asserting that Henry was the supreme authority over the church in England. That same year, Henry VIII also beheaded Thomas More, his former chancellor, for the same reason.
The sterilization-contraception-abortifacient mandate is set to go into effect for most health-care plans on Aug. 1, about four weeks after the bishops’ “Fortnight of Freedom.”
“Under this Act,” it says, “millions of American taxpayers will be forced to help support abortion coverage, in two ways: (1) Through their tax dollars all taxpayers will be forced to subsidize overall health plans that cover elective abortions, contrary to the policy of the Hyde amendment and every other major federal program, and (2) Many of these Americans will also be forced to pay directly for other people’s abortions. Some will say this is technically not ‘tax funding of abortions,’ because the required surcharge will be a premium payment rather than a tax payment as such. But what the payment is called is less important than what it actually does.”
You will see the name Sir Thomas More. This is the same Sir Thomas More who wrote the book Utopia. This is the same man who the Left hold up as one of the Gods that will make this world a better place by placing a few people in charge of our lives by creating a utopia where everyone’s needs and wants will be taken care of. These people will dole out the resources and to the masses. These chosen people will have complete control of our lives.
Our founding fathers read More’s Utopia and rejected it out right as well as Plato’s Republic. These ideas were false. Man can’t create a utopia on earth. Our founding fathers believed in the Biblical concepts of individual freedom, freedom of choice, private property rights, capitalism, and religious freedom.
We are heading down a path socialism. Obama is now leading the charge of changing our country into a centralized government that will make all the decisions for us-from womb to tomb. The seeds of these ideas were sown by Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Franklin Roosevelt.
The graves of the men and women who died for our freedom are being spit upon by Obama, the Democrat Socialist Party, The Elites in the Republican Party, the Statists and the Left.
Here are some of the heroes who served our country.
James Armistead.” Eight slaves are known to have been granted freedom by the legislature for service in the Revolutionary War.
“Among them was James Armistead, who had slipped out of Yorktown before the siege began and returned to Lafayette’s service. When Cornwallis paid a courtesy call on the marquis, he was surprised to encounter a black man there he considered to be in his pay.In October 1784, Lafayette penned a certificate declaring that James Armistead had done “Essential Service” in collecting “Intelligence from the Ennemy’s Camp” and was therefore “Entitled to Every Reward His Situation Can Admit of.” The document in hand, Armistead hurried to the legislature, where his manumission request came up in December. But more than two years would pass until his emancipation on January 9, 1787.”At the peril of his life” he had “found means to frequent the British camp” and collect information essential to the American cause. Now he was free, while his master was compensated at the going auction-block figure.In 1816, he bought 40 acres of land in New Kent County, where he raised his family. In 1819, Virginia granted him $60 relief money and put him on the regular pension roll at $40 a year. In 1824, the marquis and James Lafayette – as he now called himself – met one last time in Richmond, during Lafayette’s triumphant tour of the United States.”
Oliver Wolcott, Jr. (1760-1833) was born to a distinguished Connecticut family; his father signed the Declaration of Independence and represented Connecticut at the Continental Congress. The younger Wolcott, a graduate of Yale, served as Comptroller of Accounts for Connecticut in 1788-89 and as Comptroller of the United States from 1791 until 1795. An enthusiastic proponent of Alexander Hamilton’s financial policies, he was appointed by President George Washington to be the second Secretary of the Treasury (1795-1800) when Hamilton resigned from the cabinet.
David Humphreys (1752-1818) soldier, diplomat, merchant, poet. Graduated Yale (1771). Served as an aide-de-camp to Washington during the American Revolution rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel. Secretary to the commercial treaty commission in France and England (1784-86). Member of the Connecticut Assembly (1786) and in the same year commandant of a new regiment to carry out operations against the Indians. Served as secret U.S. intelligence agent at London, Lisbon, and 1790; commissioner for Algerian affairs (post 1793); minister to Spain (1796-1801). Settling in Boston he became interested in the breeding of merino sheep and textile milling. Humphreys was also a poet (albeit relatively unsuccessful); and associated with America’s first literary coterie, the “Hartford Wits” which included John Barlow and John Trumbull.
Humphreys stood at George Washington’s side during his Inauguration as President of the United States. Later in 1789, Humphreys published the first part of his Life of George Washington, including notes on George Washington’s feelings about slavery, recording Washington’s hope to “lay down a foundation to prepare the rising generation for a destiny different from that in which they were born.”
These men listed above are not household names yet they helped make this country great. You will never see their names written about in the history books yet their heroism will live forever.
