July 4, 2011, Howard Coble John Boehner Congress, American Patriots, Military officers, Investigate Obama
“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense, to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans
“These are the times that try men’s souls.
The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will,
in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country;
but he that stands by it now, deserves the
love and thanks of man and woman.
Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered;
yet we have this consolation with us,
that the harder the conflict,
the more glorious the triumph.”…Thomas Paine
The tune “The American Hero” by Andrew Law with words from the poem by Nathaniel Niles, has moved me since I was a child. It was written the year of the Battle of Bunker Hill, 1775. Listen and read the words of the first and last two verses and revisit one of the earlier Tea Parties.
The American Hero
By Andrew Law
(The original is fifteen verses long; the first two and last two verses are given here.)
Why should vain mortals tremble at the sight of
Death and destruction in the field of battle,
Where blood and carnage clothe the ground in crimson,
Sounding with death groans?
Death will invade us by the means appointed,
And we must all bow to the king of terrors;
Nor am I anxious, if I am prepared,
What shape he comes in.
Fame and dear freedom lure me on to battle,
While a fell despot, grimmer than a death’s head,
Stings me with serpents, fiercer than Medusa,
To the encounter.
Life, for my country and the cause of freedom,
Is but a trifle for a worm to part with;
And if preserved in so great a contest,
Life is redoubled.
In the spirit of the American Revolution and modern day patriots, Tea Party Patriots, I ask of Congressman Howard Coble, John Boehner and members of congress, how many military officers must speak up to investigate Obama, his eligibility and his ties? How many signatures on a petition? We have the right to petition and I exercise that right now. I will be asking this question again.
