America The Beautiful

On the day that Barack Hussein Obama and his minions attempt to make America a nation of needy losers, let us revel in the beautiful music and words of a man who understood America's true greatness.

Ray Charles could have been the perfect example of a charity case. Born in the poverty-riddled and racially divided south at the beginning of The Great Depression, Ray was blinded by the age of five, lost his father by age ten, and his mother passed five years later. Instead of complaining, Ray used the talents he had to earn a living... and the rest, as they say - is history.

Ray Charles didn't need government to help him. Ray Charles overcame poverty, racial discrimination, thieves, users, addiction and other personal demons, and through it all recognized the greatness and beauty of a nation that would allow a man who was determined to succeed to fulfill his dreams.

No matter the outcome of today's vote, we will not give this greatest of nations over to those who wish to destroy her. We will fight with every ounce of energy within us.

With God, history, and truth on our side - we will prevail.

Thanks, man. For your words today, for Mr. Charles today...the usual once a week is never enough to hear this one.

I love this - it is needed today. I am on my way down to the Capitol. I had brunch with a bunch of liberal family friends who are in all out glout mode, and I need to be around people who understand what this is going to do.

You got it, brother. This man made this song better.. and made this world a better place.

I figure I'm tired of being down, and I thought I'd try to pick a few people up with this great and inspirational version of a beautiful song.

Remember - we surround them!!

Lets make them pay for this monstrosity!

It seems like the ultra-liberals have been able to bribe and coerce enough congress-scumbags to pass the Obamacare. And as I said before, there would be hell to pay for this monstrosity. Obamacare is the very definition of unlimited government - the threat of which was forwarned by the Founding Fathers more than two centuries ago. The federal government, which is up to its neck in debt and unfunded liabilities, decided to launch the biggest entitlement of all times – the medical care for all. The spending on this new entitlement will surely dwarf many if not most of Federal programs and will make the bankruptcy of federal and state governments inevitable. The time of reckoning is at hand, brothers and sisters. Obamacare is the last breath of the liberal order – and it’s time to take back America from the thieves.

All patriots of this nation must stand together and fight back. United we will win! There is no blue or red America anymore – there are only those that believe in America the beautiful, America the free, America the shining city on the hill – and those that believe in welfare socialism and government tyranny. Today, we fight not only for our personal well-being – but for the dignity and honor of this country, for the right to look into the eyes of our children and say – we defended this nation from the perils of socialism. In November 2010, we will answer the crucial questions of our times - are American people worthy of the efforts of the Founding Fathers? Will American people have to right to proudly say “We are Americans” – or they will forever live in infamy and indignity of welfare socialism?

I am glad that the Democratic Party passed the Rubicon. From now on, there is no coming back for the liberal elites, no talk for compromise and middle-ground. Today, it is abundantly clear that we either will live in Obama-America or America that our Founding Father envisioned. You cannot have both.

The November elections will be the most important elections in our lifetime. If you don’t vote for America in November – you don’t deserve to be called an American.

Great post and great example. The only thing that keeps my head from exploding is that knowledge that God is the one really in charge. Like you said, with God, history and truth on our side - we will prevail. It make take a little while, but it will happen.

Hyph -

Excellent words. It always fascinates me how an immigrant - the very people liberals claim to champion the most - can see right through their game and expose them for what they are!

I agree with you - there is now no room for middle-ground. We are at a major crossroads in America, and we need to discover exactly what our future holds. Are we to return to our origins as the greatest nation of free men on Earth, or are we to become just another Socialist / Communist land of massive government entitlements?

Tammy -

This has been a rough day.. a rough year, for that matter. We must fight back, though.

FYI - this is why I support Hayworth for Senate - one of his first orders of business will be to repeal this disaster.
