As I thought of the significance of the award, I couldn't help but think of the brave men and women who have fought and died for this country. They are the true heroes, not a bunch of civilians who have led the good life in comfort while these young men and women were giving there all in sacrifice. And I thought of the disdain that Obama's actions toward so many of our military have shown and his willingness to use them as pawns, and it made me give even less credence to this civilian award.
Having mentioned this marked contrast, I am sure you wonder who the two civilian awardees are for whom I have such disregard. They are Gloria Steinem and Oprah Winfrey? Oh, others don't represent the best tenets of freedom either, but these two really stand out.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised because it is par for the course with our current President. He tries to stick his finger in the eye of all conservative Americans who believe in God, family and country. And these two certainly represent an insult to us.
Why do I say this? Well, let's look at Gloria Steinem first. Steinem, a woman who spent her life touting immoral lifestyle and behaviors such as abortion on demand and promiscuity, is considered a national hero by Obama. What about the unborn child who lost his or her freedom (life) due to the selfish behavior of someone who would have been the parent? Or what about the young lady who began to have sex after hearing a Steinem diatribe, only to lose the one gift from God that should have been saved for something special? Well, I guess if you don't have God in your life to impact your plans, sex on a casual basis becomes an everyday event like a kiss at the door after a date.
No, Steinem is no hero. She represents forces that have grown in this country and have destroyed much of our moral fiber and self-control. And, instead of freedom, the resulting lifestyle results in the making of poor decisions which are more likely to create a form of slavery--slavery to welfare and state support as a consequence of the behaviors.
And then there's Oprah Winfrey, a woman who has made millions upon millions of dollars, most of her fortune coming from fans who are caucasian and have supported her loyally, many from her native South. And even though we have a black President who received plenty of support from the white community, Oprah sees his problems, problems due to his own dogma and unwillingness to face political reality, as a result of racism. Not only that, she sees the solution to be the death of many generations of Southern whites who she deems racist. So if we kill off the whites who are undoubtedly racist in her mind, the racism will go away. Not really, Oprah, if you are in fact the one displaying the racism.
No, Oprah, it's not racism. It's America rising up against Socialism and the destruction it represents. It's rebellion against a health care system that is destroying the best health care in the world, cronyism that has corrupted the political process, and extensive graft and corruption by an Administration hell bent on turning America into a Northern version of Cuba. This isn't racism, Oprah, this is patriotism and someone like you who has been so fortunate because of the American dream needs to get down on your knees and thank God for the goodness of those people, many white, who have helped you get whee you are today. How about a little gratitude and honesty instead of all of the hate?
Sadly, you have chosen another course, making outlandish claims that aren't supported by fact. Even sadder is the fact that the President of the United States has deemed this behavior to be worthy of the Medal of Freedom and in so doing he has seriously cheapened its value. His actions have shown contempt for the very basis for our freedom, for only with love in our hearts and belief in the tenets of America can we ever attain our dreams. And when our leaders reward immoral behavior and hatred in the name of freedom we are in real trouble.
America deserves so much better but it is not likely to change until the infection in our government is removed. Prosperity and truth will only return with a different election result in the future. Our leaders and those who have been successful need to stand up for the goodness of America not continually trying to tear her down. It's all about attitude and outlook and if it doesn't change soon, the very concept of freedom, the supposed basis for the award of a medal in its name, will be lost and unlikely to return.
Americans, stand up for your country and its constitutional beginnings under God. Be strong and be brave and never be swayed by those who want to change her basic foundation. That foundation is what has made her strong and will sustain our future if we stay the course. With God in our heart and actions, we will always be free. Otherwise, the course might lead us into chains of bondage that always comes with big, unaccountable government. Let's work hard to keep this from happening.
God bless you all.
