Guard With Jealous Attention
August 23, 2012 by Bob Livingston
As we approach another Presidential election, we face a Morton’s Fork. On the one hand is the Marxist President Barack Obama who in speeches has committed himself to empire America and to policies subjecting Americans to trickle-up poverty while he and his cronies enjoy the perks of power. On the other hand is the corporatist/fascist Mitt Romney who has pledged to grow the military-industrial complex while growing America’s debt almost as fast as Obama.
Both are owned by the banksters, by Israel and by Saudi Arabia. Both are slaves to the military-industrial complex and the moneyed elites. And what’s worse, both believe it is the proper role of government to imprison and/or assassinate Americans on a whim, the U.S. Constitution notwithstanding.
In a speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788, Patrick Henry said:
Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.
Americans, unfortunately, let down their guard many years ago.
