Have Our Veterans Served and Died in Vain?

Yesterday was Veteran’s Day and I proudly raised my American flag in honor of them. I took time to reflect on their service over the past 240 years. I thank them for winning and preserving our freedoms and rights. Millions died or lost limbs or suffered other injuries in their service to our country.

But I couldn’t help but wonder if their service and sacrifices have been in vain. I recall thanking an older vet for his services recently and after saying thank you, he told me that he served the America that was not the America that it is today. He then told me that seeing what Obama and liberals have done to America makes him feel like he served in vain. His words have haunted me since and reflecting on Veterans Day, I began to realize just how right he was.

Veterans fought for the right to vote and now liberal politicians and judges are allowing illegal aliens to cast illegal votes.

Veterans fought for the freedom of speech, but now liberal politicians and judges are passing laws to restrict free speech.

Veterans fought for the freedom of religion, but now liberal politicians and judges are stripping away religious freedom from Christians especially. We are being forced to violate our Christian faith for the sake of a perverted part of the population.

Veterans fought for the freedom of the press, but now liberal politicians and judges are trying to restrict what’s being printed and broadcast via the internet.

Veterans fought for the freedom to own your own land and build or farm the way you want, but now liberal politicians and judges are using eminent domain to steal the land from citizens. They are using the EPA to prevent land owners from using their land to build homes and businesses.

Veterans fought for the freedom from illegal search and seizure, but liberal politicians and judges are allowing no knock raids on citizens’ homes.

Veterans fought for the freedom to stand proud and show our patriotism of America, but liberal politicians and judges are stripping that away too. Students in schools have been punished for displaying their American patriotism. Schools are teaching students to be patriotic to the world, not America.

Veterans fought for States’ rights, but liberal politicians and judges have trampled all over the Tenth Amendment as if it never existed. They treat States as if they have no rights or authority over the federal government.

Veterans fought for the right to be governed by our own Constitution, but liberal politicians and judges are illegally re-writing that Constitution and turning it into a socialist document.

Veterans fought to protect our president, but now we have a leader who has committed treason on more than one occasion by aiding and abetting the very enemies that our veterans have fought against. He has also openly violated many federal laws and the Constitution. He has illegally assumed the authority and powers of Congress and has forced socialist policies upon the American people. I know a young man who served in the Marines where one of his duties was to protect President George W. Bush on several occasions. He told me that he would have taken a bullet for Bush without any hesitation, but he wasn’t so sure he would have taken one for Obama.

Our veterans have fought hard and sacrificed much, as have their families. They did it for the America that was, not for the America that is today. If we truly want to honor our veterans, we will take action to remove every liberal politician and judge that has been part of the destruction of America and replace them with qualified veterans who are still willing to serve their country in another way. Let’s turn American over to those who fought for what it was and allow them to restore America to the greatness we once had.
