It's an Americanization Thing

Dear America, 
"I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."

how many of us, living in America, would stand with our hand over our heart and say this very same pledge without prejudice... without a doubt... without an ACLU attorney present and by our side?

From The Patriot Post this morning, nearing the end of his column, Mark Alexander's weekly essay told of a story about one of his colleagues, adding a personal dimension while striking hard upon the ramifications if America cannot find the delicate balance of immigration and citizenship.  

As told by Alexander, this fellow patriot, now working alongside him, was born in Czechoslovak Socialist Republic, in the area of Bratislava. By the way he tells it, this colleague grew up with one lifelong dream:  making America his home.  And so it begins, trailblazing his own path to citizenship -- in a country across an ocean and miles further in ideology -- that ultimately took him years... unimaginable initiative... and tireless effort.

Alexander just had to know, just what are his thoughts about America's current immigration reform agenda, and he replied with this:
"Sometimes I wonder why we came here and I struggled so hard to become a U.S. citizen, when the U.S. is moving toward the tyranny I worked so hard to escape.
...The out-of-control government spending and regulations, more government programs and employees, just lead to more corruption and constriction of Liberty. This is a cancer that will kill free enterprise. In Czechoslovakia, the socialist's control and regulation led to political corruption, and no reason to work harder because if you earned more, the government took more to give to others. America is sick with this cancer and it should be removed..."

spoken like a guy who knows from experience. and not finished, he added:

"America needs very strict controls, and those who do become citizens should be 'Americanized' or else America will be no more."

It was Joe Walsh (R), the gentleman from Illinois, who said -- immediately following the sideshow meeting President Obama held with the GOP leaders over the Debt Ceiling Dilemma --  "he has no idea how the free market works" when pressed for some clues about how things went, with Neil Cavuto yesterday; Walsh went a step further, posing the concern that the topic of debt and deficits is just not registering with the leader of the free world. [sure...let's....piggy backing on yesterday's G, picture football flying over head]

Now over two years in, we have proven, for the umpteenth time, stimulus spending, government intervention, and more entitlement just does not work to lift a country out of economic doldrums.  And to that end, the GOP are seeking strong measures to get America back on track.  And while Obama claims he wants to hear what republicans have to say, he has no intention of caving in on his America dream  -- to fundamentally transform her from the inside out. 

What to do, what to do, when a president needs Americanization.

so yes, maybe I am weaving in a wee bit too much for one day.  but the thing is, if you allow me to expand,  there really is a common thread between our debt, our running up of trillion dollar deficits, beside the dangers and  remarkable contrast of the American way of life running in short supply.

The absence of an Americanized citizenry is all around us; we are no longer recreating the americanized role model according to plan; we are no longer living within our means, according to plan; we are no longer speaking one language, according to plan; we are no longer melting into one, unified body of people, under God, according to plan; we are no longer living in community with self-reliant, independent citizenry, according to plan; we are no longer willing and able, if not fully emblazoned, to give respectfully of ourselves to God and country, no matter what comes, according to plan [see pledge at the start]; we are no longer elevating the principles of a true free market society, according to plan...and on and on.

According to a new New Deal, we have entered a new age and by the looks of things, could not care less -- for this is an age where no initiative, no extra effort, no allegiance, no pledge, no prayerful thought is required; and, as a matter of fact,  is frowned upon even.  just follow the bouncing ball...where are we at...

Obama's budget was voted down in the Senate 97 to zero; not one democrat was willing to stick out his allegiance to the president's plan, not one!  Obama is willing to add 2.4 Trillion dollars to our, already, gargantuan national debt of 14.4 Trillion, with no strings attached.  Obama is willing to overlook the illegalities of 12 to 18 million illegal immigrants  votes, disrespectful of the hundreds of thousands of people like this Slovakian colleague of Mark Alexander's, in a Statue of Liberty minute. Obama is willing to jeopardize the nation's solvency by adding another entitlement we cannot afford -- while ignoring the immediate reform needed of the programs we already have.

Obama thinks stimulating a "free market" is accomplished best by adding government jobs, government grants, government bureaucrats, government intervention/regulation/control, all adding 20% to the government bottom line.  As unamerican as an American president can get,  I am willing to bet that Obama is willing to sell America's soul if we let him (and no, I didn't just call him the devil.  I am merely responding to a repeated offense -- with emphasis on a simple question --  just how far is this president willing to go? because I'm not sensing any self-control here.  This man has an agenda that counters every American ideal through and through).

Continuing with the theme of the week,  a jaded G stands with Walsh, President Obama does not understand a true free market -- the very market this country was made, flourished even, rising out of the tireless efforts of immigrants past, those who paved the way and made possible a nation's future... creating... prospering... in the free-est society that ever lived.

But that takes work, a conscience, integrity, even the ability to see far down the road, into the lives of future generations, doesn't it?

A system built upon robbing Peter to pay Paul -- whether it is in the capacity of hardworking Americans feeding the mouths of families here illegally, or whether it is one hand of government feeding the empty coffers of another, it is all the same -- and in no way does it have the capacity to sustain us.   Bernie Madoff economics lasts only as long as the people remain blind, oblivious, and disengaged. And yet, the "progressives of today" and the "socialists of tomorrow" continually challenge this debate -- remaining clearly willing to let the "americanization" part of the equation go.

Perhaps it takes hearing the words of new Americans -- those effervescing the American spirit in every way, those who have had to work awfully hard to get here, who get this from the gut -- to remind us of just what is at stake.

We are in a world of hurt.  A hurt so huge, anyone with half a brain must realize the injustice is not from one party, one cause, building upon one issue larger than next -- it is all of it.  It is a vicious combination, and going viral as we speak, stemming from americans no longer acting and behaving and leading as AMERICANS -- as one voice shining above all the rest, reciting in unison a pledge that binds our hearts and minds forever.  A voice that stands together, willing to do whatever it takes, in order to establish a new life, in a new country, feeding a new dream that can only come living in community within the borders of a truly free society.

As a people, we no longer reflect the American way, the truth, and the Light.

In the meeting with the president, Paul Ryan said it best, “Leadership should come from the top.”

Demonstrating just how far he is willing to go to make things right -- and for me, calling for backup from an article published on The Hill, Ryan capitalizes on his meeting with the president saying to the press, “As far as Medicare is concerned, we wanted to make sure the president understood the facts about our proposal so he doesn’t continue to mischaracterize it. We just needed to clear the air."

Can you just imagine what it is like for a Slovakian waking up as an American citizen for the very first time?  I can only assume every day would be brand new.  No matter the weather, the air would be clearer, fresher, an invigorating burst of new life for a wayward, tiresome soul who spent years making it his reality.

It would behoove each and every one of us to walk out our door right now and take in a good, long breath -- maybe even fall down on bended knee and kiss the ground good.

Americanization is the only way America works.
and with that, my three day jaded spree is sensing a lift...

Make it a Good Day, G

speaking of which, happy Ascension Day to my fellow believers xx


  1. ... and also, the Wisdom for the Ages, as current as today's issues, by George Washington ... found in his Farewell Address, September 26,1796. He would not have entangled in a NATO Alliance with partners of unequal integrity or strength ... but then BO is out to reduce the USA to a lowest common denominator 3rd world country ... time to bring back the 5000 YEAR LEAP

  2. amen. thank you for your added wisdom...G
