Here is a related post Fourth of July ‘I am American, I have roots, I am your Flag‘; Happy Independence day. America as we know it has ceased to exist in so many ways. Below are some quotes from those Americans who passed this way so long ago. Their wisdom and warnings are to be taken as truth. These quotes speak volume’s and shall do as my commentary and heartfelt warning to Americans everywhere. -WIBR/WARN Radio, The Watchman Dana G Smith, and Tower
- The complete Narcissistic fool and moron:
“As democracy is perfected, the office of President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.”— H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920
- Let the American youth forget our noble inheritance bought by those before us!
“Let the American youth never forget, that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils, and sufferings, and blood of their ancestors; and capacity, if wisely improved, and faithfully guarded, of transmitting to their latest posterity all the substantial blessings of life, the peaceful enjoyment of liberty, property, religion, and independence.” –Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
- America where the whole body of the people are armed
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.”–Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 1787
- The sweeping torrent of boundless ambition and the sapping current of corrupted morals
“The blessed Religion revealed in the word of God will remain an eternal and awful monument to prove that the best Institution may be abused by human depravity; and that they may even, in some instances be made subservient to the vilest purposes. Should, hereafter, those incited by the lust of power and prompted by the Supineness or venality of their Constituents, overleap the known barriers of this Constitution and violate the unalienable rights of humanity: it will only serve to shew, that no compact among men (however provident in its construction and sacred in its ratification) can be pronounced everlasting an inviolable, and if I may so express myself, that no Wall of words, that no mound of parchm[en]t can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the one side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other.“–George Washington, fragments of the Draft First Inaugural Address, 1789
I have spoken, warned, cajoled, preached, taught, and then pondered all these things. In the midst of it all, I and my family are American’s living in America who is not America led by people that are not true Americans according to my understanding and definition. America today is more like the Roman Empire of old. It is revived now, living in this country at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
As H.L. Mencken of the Baltimore Evening Sun said on July 26th, 1920 one day the White House would be “occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron”, so be it! It has come to pass and the people of this nation voted him in. The people along with the resident of the White House have no clue to where they are going and being led into.
I do not celebrate America as it is today, but as it once was!
Again, America on this Fourth of July
