We ARE engaged in a great civil war, a war to determine if our great Republic will survive as a nation of FREE people or become slaves to a debt ridden socialist oligarchy. Will we be a nation of liberty, a nation of equal opportunity, a nation of self-reliance and self responsibility? Or will we become a nation of dependent parasites living off the fruits of our fellow citizens’ labors by the force of a tyrannical nanny state?

Text of the video:
To borrow from the immortal words of Abraham Lincoln,
“Our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in LIBERTY, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.
It is for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us
that we, here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—
that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of FREEDOM—
and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
We ARE engaged in a great civil war, a war to determine if our great Republic will survive as a nation of FREE people or become slaves to a debt ridden socialist oligarchy.
A war no less important to the survival of the Republic than the one Lincoln spoke of.
Will we be a nation of liberty, a nation of equal opportunity, a nation of self-reliance and self responsibility?
Or will we become a nation of dependent parasites living off the fruits of our fellow citizens’ labors by the force of a tyrannical nanny state?
Will we be a nation of law, of the Constitution and ALL the rights reserved to the people or will we be a nation of tyranny, subject to the whims of one man or one political party?
C.S. Lewis said “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.”
Those who would enslave you are sincere in their belief that it is for your own good.
They are sincere in their belief that THEY know best how to run your life and the lives of all your fellow citizens.
If you would just give them the ring of power, they would wield it for your own good.
And if you will not freely give them the ring of power they will try and take it.
If you think war is too harsh a word look at the property destruction of the recent protests of the occupy movement;
the fires in the streets, attacks on police, shutting down major ports, disrupting traffic of people on their way to work, taking over public lands.
And what are the demands of these unruly mobs with their socialist banners and communist slogans?
They demand punishment for anyone who is successful. They demand seizure of the property of others to be then FAIRLY redistributed among themselves.
We have a government that has indebted you, your children and even your grandchildren in an unprecedented spending spree that has increased our national debt over 60% in just 3 years;
a government that has piled up more debt than any other in history.
We have a government that has made over half of the population dependent on hand outs in some way.
We have a president who is giving away billions of dollars to campaign supporters while smiling and telling you it is for your own good;
A president that is holding the nation hostage to special interests groups by denying production of our own energy resources.
A president that is squandering the prosperity of generations to hold on to the reins of power.
A president that gives favors to his campaign supporters and intimidates and denigrates those who dare oppose him.
We currently have an administration that has given over $16 billion dollars to companies with connections to campaign supporters in the name of mythical green jobs.
In the case of Solyndra the Obama administration overturned the previous administrations denial of a half BILLION dollar loan that has since vanished in bankruptcy after the administration illegally put campaign supporters ahead of taxpayers in the bankruptcy.
We have an administration that has given over $25 BILLION to union supporters while destroying historical precedent in contract law because of hundreds of millions spent by unions on campaigns.
Again putting campaign supporters ahead of other citizens’ rights to their money.
This is an administration that wants so badly to please anti-gun lobbyists that it created a program to give sniper rifles and semi-automatic weapons to violent Mexican drug cartels just so that it could claim that American guns were causing the cartel violence and create gun control without an unwilling congress.
This is an administration that has used its agencies to attack companies that dare seek to build factories to create jobs in non-union states.
This is an administration that uses the EPA to shut down the energy industry destroying hundreds of thousands of jobs and raising the cost of gasoline, electricity and everything that uses energy. And what does not use energy?
This is an administration that spent two years ignoring the recession and focused on passing a tyrannical health care bill that the CBO said will kill 800,000 jobs and put us permanently on the path to socialized medicine.
All the while they smiled and talked of how focused they were on job creation.
This is an administration that uses its Justice department to sue states for trying to enforce the law and even sued to try to end the right of churches to determine who their own pastors and teachers should be.
This is an administration that is PROUD, proud of the fact that it CAN’T WAIT for congress. After all, congress is just the elected representatives of the people.
After all, Obama knows best. After all its for your own good.
What will it take? What will it take to get WE THE PEOPLE to be awakened to the threat to our freedom?
What will it take to get WE THE PEOPLE to be RESOLVED?
What will it take to get WE THE PEOPLE DEDICATED?
What will it take to get WE THE PEOPLE to FIGHT this battle?
What will it take? What will it take to get WE THE PEOPLE ACTIVATED so that government
of the people, by the people, and for THE PEOPLE, shall not perish from the earth.
