    Thank you! This Marine knows where it’s at…and what a great voice!

  • BLUEEYESOL

    Was not expecting that! As I listened to the words and Mr Cain’s honest and noteworthy delivery, and saw the people, one by one, stand in Honor and cover their hearts, I had tears of Pride and Joy for my fellow countrymen and our great country.

    How can the media and politicians not see our devotion to our country and try to label us as kooks and nazis and trouble makers, when it shows that we just love our God given promisland, These UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

    I think i will now go back and give this another lisen to, to keep those words and shining moment in my heart forever.

        If the United States of American is NOT a Christian Nation, why has EVERY President of the United States of America took the Oath of Office sworn on a Christian BIBLE ?

        • Jerry Clark

          all but Obama.

          • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Linda

            BECAUSE HE IS A FORKED TONGUED IMPOSTER AND LIER

          • Save America Susie

            Actually, That is urban legend. Obama did swear in on a Bible. He used the SAME Bible that Pres. Abe Lincoln swore in on March 4, 1861 to uphold the Constitution.

            I am NOT a fan of BO, but the fact is he not only used the Bible to swear in on, he used Lincolns! Ironic!

          • Gramma from Canada

            That is exactly what ‘obama’ did alright………He ‘USED’ the Bible to ‘swear’ on….and on ‘that’ day he ‘invoked’ the WRATH of God!
            God Bless America and every one in the Tea Party….

        • Debbie

          If I have my facts correct I believe he actually took the oath twice… once on koran and then on Bible.

          • Ali

            I remember reading about that.

        • Lily

          I felt so Proud after hearing & watching this video. We all should stand together as One Nation, Under God, indivisible with liberty & justice for ALL.

        Disgusting!

        • Gloria

          Liberty comes only from God, the Judeo-Christian God, whom our Founding Fathers worshiped. And generation, after generation, we still do, worship and honor Him, giving, you, the right through our U.S.Constitution, to say what you stated here.

          • Ken

            Freedom comes from claiming it through fight, when necessary. God never delivered freedom to anyone….it has been the Marines, the Army and the other military men and women who gave their all for the freedom we cherish. The Bible is filled with references to slaves…and it all seemed to be quite acceptaqble to God in those circumstances.

          • http://www.freedomthirst.com ThirstyJon

            Ken, the whole book of Exodus is about delivering slaves from slavery. The whole point of the Christian Gospel is to “set captives free.”

            Thirsty Jon – your email was showing because you placed it in your name category – I’ve nearly made that mistake myself. It’s nothing Personal Liberty did – but rather a mistake you had to have made.

          Leave it to a liberal to resort to name calling instead of addressing the issues. If you do not have the brains to address the issue or back up your comment with some facts, maybe you should try a short study of history. You will be amazed by facts instead of hype. You must have been a public school student, now just a wingless parrot merely repeating something you heard somewhere. Try thinking for a change!

          • http://notsurewhatyou'reaskinghere Sue

            Hey, wait a minute — I’m a public school student, and I’m neither stupid nor gullible. I’m also conservative and Christian, but I try not to make assumptions about large groups of people at once. It usually leads to making more enemies, not friends, not to mention being just plain incorrect a large part of the time. And being incorrect won’t help advance your cause . . .

        • Tina Clayton

          Sounds like someone is angry at Christians & can’t make an intelligent reply without name calling. How we speak to each other even in disagreements is a sign of intelligence.

      Sorry, I meant to say Mr Louis’s singing, not mr Cain, Mr Cain is the speaker, Louis is the one who sang the song.

    • Donn Layne

      someone said…may not have been Blueeye Sol…”how can the media disparage us?”…those of us who love this country…I think that there is a pretty easy answer to that question. George Soros and other like minded powerful people order them to….and now as most of these outlets struggle for their finacial lives it will get worse. I am not saying we can’t win…I think the USA faces the toughest challenge that it has ever faced because we are being eaten away from the inside by a very smart and powerful force that sees an opening NOW…and is going for it hard…Progressives must be crushed …they will never quit..but an educated population can certainly keep them at bay…Donn

    We need to realize how far our country has moved to the left–and then we need to TAKE IT BACK. Few movements throughout our history have been so authentic as the Tea Party movement!! After many years spent in one of our other “parties”, I’ve decided to join the Tea Party movement. Let’s not forget that the first Tea Party Movement was over two hundred years in Boston. We need to keep that same enthusiasm going–and let’s not lose sight of our goals!!

    We in America who Know This is A Christian Republic Have Been Had By Two Ruthles Traitors That Started the Downfall of this Republic and then Added 10 More,Woodrrow Wilson,His Anti Humanity Louis Brandise Berach Baruch, Morganthaul who Set the Stage Fr the destruction of Europe for Communism Not Freedom and the one World Government. Then Came Herbert Hoove Like the Buses in Iraq to Set the Next stage of their Agenda Japan and China With the Help of Herbert Hoover To Bring on the Depresion So they Would Be able to Finish off Europe at a Lower wage Frome 5.00 an Hour to 45 Cents an hour as they Did withF.D. Roosevelt Socilist Murdering Plans with Russia to Spread Communism with Eisenhower Stalin and Churchill.
    Where Did Hitler Get the Money to rebuild After The Jews and U.S Destroy Them in 1917 ?? And Where Did The US.Get the Money to Fight the Jews Enemys Germaney,Italy and Japan?? who Collected the interest on all the Loaned Money if he U.S. was Bankrupted??. and Why Did Murdering F.D.Roosevelt Confiscated the Gold from Americans that did not belong to him or the Government?? Who Made the Greatist Gains After the Death and Destruction brought on By the United States in Japan and Europe ??, as well as Africa When China Japan and Koriea Were then under Their Control??, Yes Thanks to The United States Manipulaters,Thats Who
    Who is Collecting the Inrterest on the 10 Trillion Bailouts and Givaways??
    Like Benjamin Franklin Warned Wasginton” If You do Not Exclude them ( The Jews)in Less then 200 years they will be in their Counting Houses with the Money takn from your Children and made their Slaves,and You Chldren Will Curse you in your Graves”
    So I Curse You Woodrow Wilson Teddy Roosevelt,Herbert Hoover,F.D.R. Rosevelt Harry s Truman,Eisenhower,L.B.Johnson and I will Curse alll the Ones who Die After they are Barried that Sold Out to These Murdering Terrorist in New York, Washington D.C,The United Nations and the States Representatives,Udal Hayden Barry Goldwater,Abraham Lincoln Etc.,Etc.,Etc.
    For this Reason We must Purge Their Evil Influance that Brought us to This Imorality,and Inslavement

        • plusaf

          paul, one of the really sad things about your posts is that your command of the English language shows a severe degree of illiteracy, and often people who can’t spell or create grammatically sound sentences are alwo characterized by sloppy thinking, and thus draw poor conclusions from information presented to them.

          the Founding Fathers were not Christians, they were Deists… they believed in a Supreme Being, aka “God,” but not necessarily the Jesus Christ that you’ve been taken over by. So stop putting words in their mouthes, especially if they’re not true.

          the fact that you believe something does not make it true, and just because your preacher or your bible “says so” makes it true only for YOU, not for everyone else on earth.

          here’s some proof about god… “I am God, and you can’t prove the statement is wrong.”

          any argument you bring against that statement to show that I am NOT God will be answered like this: “No, I created THAT, too!”

          try it. you may be surprised, but i doubt you can think that far.

          • Dan Hudson

            Plusaf, You, not Paul are the pitiful one. You really show your character when you criticize a fellow human for not being as educated as think you are. Have you any idea what his circumstances in life are? You criticize without wisdom or even knowledge.

            You are wrong about our founding fathers being Deists. True some were, but far from being in the majority. You are not well read on that topic, yet you spout forth words as if you were. Even misspelled words such as also “alwo” and mouths “mouthes”. Check them out in a dictionary. Even if you know better, you should edit all your writing. You are a little sloppy, don’t you think? Probably more so than your claim against Paul. Is not Paul a proper name? Most people begin proper names with capital letters.

            Did you really think your response to Paul was so power packed that he would be humiliated and all your readers would be motivated to better their education and then deny Jesus, all because you thought that your reply was worth printing?

            I hope that your comment that you are god is not your real belief. Typically people like you that deny God, you are guilty of that arn’t you, think that man is the highest being that exists. Such though opens the door to lofty claims, one of which you made even if only to make a point. Then we should consider your argument that one cannot prove that you are not god. It seems that any god would have superior powers to yours. I don’t see much power expressed in your writing. Could there be more hidden somewhere? I doubt it.

            Educate yourself. Start by reaching for the position of Deist. That position you recognize. Start with knowledge. Then strive for wisdom. God gives wisdom to those who ask in faith. Maybe you are too blind and deaf to realize the wisdom you are lacking. From the level of Deist, you will have a short climb to full stature before the true living God of this universe. Make no mistake, do not be decieved, God is not mocked without penalty. Now, if you have any wisdom at all, seek His face today, for today is the day of salvation. It is true, “Jesus Saves”. Oh, by the way, one more sloppyness on your part, The letter I is usually a written as a capital letter when it refers to a person. Increase your wisdom and knowledge before attacking again. You will not look so pitiful.

    • JCfromDC

      This guy Paul must be chewing ‘shrooms or worse. I haven’t heard so much disjointed drivel since he late sixties

      • spoonerist

        It just goes to show you how someone can start with a few valid observations, mix in some erroneous drivel, present it in an irrational rant, and cause people to doubt or reject the valid premises within the diatribe. The LaRouche people do it all the time. They are deliberately planted within the body politic to point out a government abomination, then misdirect the conservative audience into the wrong cause/effect explanation, and make anyone who seems to agree with their premise look like a fool. Is there any better evidence than this to support the existence of political conspiracies?

    • Ken

      I will listen to you as soon as your reasoning and logic at least catch up to your spelling ability.

  • BLUEEYESOL

    A Government big enough to give you everything you want,

    is strong enough to take everything you have.

    - Thomas Jefferson

    My People,

    The wisdom that was given to our fore-fathers, to put our original government together, in my opinion, had to be divinely inspired. Their words still touch me as if they were just spoken for the first time, every time I read them or hear them.

    To see the slow dismantling of their life’s work, to form a more perfect union, tears at my soul, as I see what “We The People” have allowed to happen to it and continue to allow, when we really have the power to throw all these betraying, oath breakers tumbling down the House steps of the Capitol, begging for us to show mercy, to allow them to live.

    I think the liberal mouthpieces, such as Rosie O., Ward C. may be right when they say we deserve what is happening to us, but not for the reasons they think, but for us allowing the treasonous likes of them to control the High Offices of our Country and Institutions of Learning, to destroy the values and principals initially set up in this country, instead of hanging them in the public square.

    I would like to be optimistic about the chances of recovering our country, but I am unsure of just how many times you can arrogantly slap God in the face and expect Him to come to our rescue and protect us from the onslaught of such twisted, greedy and selfish thinkers, of men, who have no idea of what constitutes good character, in this day of “if it feels good do it” and “do it now” with no foresight of future generations to come, or any belief or reverence for our Creator.

    I do pray, that God will protect and strengthen, the souls that still fight and yearn for a “Land of the Free and Home Of the Brave”.

    Your Brother,
    BLUEEYESOL

    • barbara

      You have such wonderful a way expressing the evolution of events that have subliminaly watered down all that which our fore fathers, by God’s grace, sculptured with their wisdom and love for these United States of America. Yes indeed we must put God back into the equation if we want to call upon Him to keep us the land of the free and the home of the brave. I believe if God is ever present by our desire, the evil that is consuming us by the minute will shrivel. In God we trust and may God bless America and deliver us from evil.

      • BLUEEYESOL

        Thank you so much Barbara for your strong and kind words. I wholeheartedly agree with you, that God needs to be put back into our society, before we can see any real improvement in our morals, and fiber and condition of our country. Even our Fore-Fathers, who gave all they had, their lives, their fortunes and their families, warned us, that this Republic, that they passed onto us, was meant wholly for a people who were moral and of Christian virtue and disciplined to govern themselves, it was not meant for any other.

        Through our Christian tolerance, we have lost our way and let common sense be replaced with political correctness, and have been lied to and deceived, into allowing great orators, who’s rhetoric says the right things, but their actions show differently, who have slowly taken more and more power unto themselves, because of our goodness to trust our elected leaders, and now their hypocrasy is laid bare for all to see and still there are many who are convinced of those lies, because of their many words and repitition. It is like talking to a brick wall sometimes with those that remain deceived.

        We must pray and bring our Creator back into our country and teach to all that will listen to us of the importance of our correct history and the greatness of the men and women who God has sent before us to protect and fight for this freedom, that we cherish. I could go on and on, but most here already know and understand what I am talking about, and for those here that do, I am proud to call my fellow countrymen and women.

        GOD BLESS these UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

  • Jamie

    It’s time for another revolution in and for our belove nation. It’s time we marched on Washington and demanded our will be done. We the people are America. We the people are the heart & soul of these United States of America. And it is we the people, who like our ancestors before us, will have to rise up and stand strong in the face of the tyranical and unGODly who are trying to steal this nation from us. For to long we have tried to accomidate the special interests, in an attemp to just get along. But it’s time we realized that these people don’t want to get along. They don’t want equal rights and protections under the law. What they want is to change the laws to reflect their own warped ideaologies and force their twisted and deminted views on us whilest they indoctrinate and steal the hearts and minds of our children and grandchildren. Our family members, past and present, have worked hard, fought hard, bled and even died so that we could have and keep the freedoms, liberties, and this great land given us by our Heavenly Father. And now it’s our turn to stand up to the perverted, the unGODly, the politically, morally, and financially corrupt, Benadict Arnolds of this nation. Are there no JOHN HANCOCKs left in this nation? Is there no-one willing to risk all to stand up for what is right? There are plenty of people ranting on the radio, on tv, and at Tea Party Rallies all over America, but it seems that no-one with the national recognition that it would take to rally the people is wiiling to risk everything in order to do so. We need a George Washington, a John Hancock, a Paul Revere, who is ready and willing to put it all on the line, to risk it all, for love of their fellow American citizens. Remember, the government has no more power than we the people decide to give it. For too long we have kept silent whilest a minority have stolen away control of our government and stolen away our freedoms and liberties in the interest of forcing upon we the people, their own twisted and perverted views and agendas Now it’s time for us to take our country, our government, our freedoms & liberties back. By diplomicy if possible, by force if necessary.

      In 1967 I was called into service to fight for the freedom of the Vietnamese people (only to be stabbed in the back by our politicians) I am with you Jamie 100%, it is time to take back our freedom ONE WAY OR THE OTHER

      • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Linda

        WELL WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR ALL TALK AND NO ACTION DOES NOT WORK EVERYTIME I SEE THE EVIL THAT HAS TAKEN OVER OUR CAPITOL MAKES ME SICK BEYOND CONTROLL WHAT IS WRONG WITH EVERYONE SOMEONE HAS TO TAKE THE FIRST STEP LETS DO IT AND STOP IT BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE

    • chuck novak

      Well said Jamie. Consider that Obama/demos have about 35% of those polled in almost every poll regardless of pollster source. Around 45% generally agree that Obama/demos are leading America in a spiraling down draft that will, if left in place, replace America into a welfare/entitlement society. The Tea Party citizens are mainly over 60yrs old, retired and of modest means. Most WW2 era folks are gone as are the Vets who fought in WW2& Korea. Many of those VietNam era voters currently run America’s political parties.
      Counting immigrants, mostly Hispanic, around 15million Voters have become dependent upon welfare and the Demos. Now 9.7+% are unemployed and are receiving unemployment compensation, around another 15 million VOTERS!!
      Point is, that conservatives MUST vote each in every election to remove ALL liberal politicians, be they Republicans or Democrats. A Rule to consider would be replace any politician who has served more than 3 terms in congress and 2 terms in the Senate with God loving, constitutionally inspired, VOCAL anti liberal proud Americans who understand that charity begins at home, not in some foreign country or ‘new world order’! Protect and Defend the constitution and provide for the general welfare of it’s CITIZENS.
      Do as you state, be unwavering in your desire to inform your friends and email contacts of what’s at stake! Use the Internet to influence your contacts to become avid as you are and repeat, repeat, repeat the call to Duty, God and Country. Thanks for reading.

      Jamie,
      We do not necessarily need someone with national recognition, but someone to whom the people will listen, someone who can deliver a message.
      But first of all, on a very basic level, people need to start hitting the liberal pocketbooks, such as, stop supporting movies that feature those so-called “stars” who speak against America, And stop listening to the music of those who speak against America. Ever hear of Cat Stevens? He was trying to make a come back in recent years. These people are so out of touch with reality. After Katrina, Brad Pitt took off for New Orleans and there was talk of his becoming mayor- how sickening. So he bought a house and drove up the prices in that part of town. When I was a kid, real people lived in the French Quarter, now only rich, famous people live there. This is how far off the track we have become to even suggest that someone like Pitt,with his lack of “everything” would possess an understanding of what real people need.
      There is so much that needs fixing in this country- children are not even safe from molestation in our schools, but the so-called president only has time to attend parties and/or affairs where he is given the “celebrity treatment”. (It’s all about him.) While the people of southern Louisiana are watching their culture die, the celebrity in the White House is entertaining a former Beatle and that Mexican bastard who is offended because we are sick of supporting his poor-ass subjects whom he wants living here and sending the dinero across the border.
      I cannot believe what is happening in this country and people sitting by and letting it go!
      I understand the illegals are leaving Arizona- that’s a clue- that when laws are enforced, the scum will scatter. I think we should have a show of strength by supporting Arizona and hold a rally there rather than in Washington, D.C.
      (Which state do you think will be the first to leave the union this time?)

    A HUGE thankyou and God Bless to this beautiful man with a beautiful voice…. I listened to him twice and cried harder the second time … Jesus says, “If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, I will listen” … God Bless America and all of you!!

    • Jonathan

      Well done Mr Lewis,awesome job, You brought tears to my eyes. I agree with Gail, we should humble ourselves and pray.
      I am reminded of Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
      It appears that the darkness of this world is closing in on our country. As a Christian There seems to be a major disconnect (in my opinion) that society has nowadays.People have a foundation of beliefs, and have no idea that this foundation is based on Christian doctrine. This condition can not last as they drift away from the Lord, and I think we are seeing that now. More and more people can not relate to Christians and our values because their foundation with every generation moves ever further from God.
      As I look at this moving video I see precious few young people. I see a lot of gray hair (mine included I am north of 50) I feel we have lost this current generation and the prior one to secular views on virtually every train of thought. People no longer fear God because in their minds he does not exist. So… everything goes, “it’s all good”
      To sum it up , As Christians we should always examine our selves. Do we really want to change America? Is God real or not. If we say we believe than we should Pray, read the Bible, go to church, apply Gods word to our selves, ask people to church (yes evangelize) build our relationship with God. As we do these things we can change America one person at a time. If we sit and complain than we should not be surprised at the outcome. We see it now.

  • Save America Susie

    Brought tears to my eyes…After watching this man sing the 2nd verse of our national anthem, I think there is hope yet for our beloved AMERICA! I feel pride in the Founding Fathers, and what they set up for us. It reminds me that America is GOD’s IDEA, & though we “walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death”, He will not abandon her!

  • Terri Rementeria

    I am overwhelmed with sadness lately.I have been so afraid for my country since the election of this NON PATRIOT (OBAMA) He constantly praises Islam.Tells the world we are not a christian nation.He is little by little taking everything our fore-fathers and service men and women have sacrificed their lives for.My country is falling around me piece by piece and I feel such fear and deep sadness.. after listening to this man all I could do is fall to my knees sobbing and thank God for …this man and every other person who is trying to stand up and save our country.I am beside you ,and as little as I am I will never give up .YOU WILL NEVER WIN OBAMA WE WILL BRING YOU DOWN !!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

    What an outstanding performance of a much needed patriotic morale booster! A powerful performance that those currently in office temporarily enjoying the majority party don’t want you to see and hear and especially email to everyone in your address book! Maybe even to FOX news.

    A quick perusing of the comments rendered a preponderance of routinely patriotic comments and one confusing one from “Paul” and one I related on different sites that I surmised in early January 2009 rendered by Jamie from NC.

    While I do not profess to know the entire answer that Jamie posts I would have to say that those with the means (more rich than poor) apparently do not want to gamble their lives as well as their material wealth on preserving our (and their) individual liberties and freedoms but seem to be taking measures to take care of themselves. A great number of them may be more than willing to bend other laws to build their wealth here in this land of opportunity but they are too busy securing what they can of their wealth to ride out the financial storm created primarily by Obama to risk it all by supporting the Second American Revolution as you want.

    When you identify those in America with the most wealth remember to also identify their political and religious ideology. Think of George Soros for one. He is a very wealthy billionaire who, in his youth collaborated with the Nazi’s during WWII. He supports such things as “the new world order”, global government, and such perversions as moveon.org, media matters and every Progressive entitlement possible. As far as his religion I’ll refer you to a book by Ann Coulter entitled, “Godless” the Religion of Liberalism”. I’ll let you determine who the others are and of what associations and affiliations they had and now have.

    We have about 20+ million American military veterans living in the United States at this time. They have already made a significant contribution to and sacrifice for this country. While not aligned in one political party they collectively do not like the direction Obama has taken this country. Even some of the younger ones who voted for Obama are not exactly screaming that from the rooftops lately. A few even left their Obama ’08 bumper sticker on their car/suv. The two points here are that they have already served (and many already risked everything-their life) and the other is they are still supportive of removing domestic enemies albeit prefer peaceful means even though the greatest number of them were trained otherwise.

    I look forward to every November, even more so since November 2008, in order to remove more and more of these Progressive/Statist/Socialist/Liberal un-American nefarious excrement shoveling politicians out of office and out of work. If however they could be prosecuted &/or impeached first; that’s just fine with me. In the meantime I am busy working and preparing for the worst yet to happen. There are a significant number of serious issues going on simultaneously in our world today. In my assessment there is a great probability of our economy collapsing in the next eight to fourteen months. That only leaves one November to work with and I am not a billionaire, not a millionaire and not exactly wealthy by any means. But I do what true Americans are known for doing, being responsible for myself to the best of my ability. I have made a plan to deal with all the ancillary effects that follow such a catastrophic event, and so should you.

    A beautiful man, a beautiful voice, and an EXTRAORDINARY PATRIOT…GOD BLESS AMERICA, MAY SHE CONTINUE TO PROSPER AND REMAIN THE GREAT LEADER THAT SHE IS. I was so overcome with joy when this gentleman began the second verse of the Star Spangled Banner; I haven’t heard it sung since I was a child in grade school back in the ’40s. Our children should be learning it today.

  • Dianne

    Well done! Take it from a music teacher, that was vs. 5! If you want a patriotic experience, search for the lyrics, in toto, of our National Anthem. It is a shame the whole thing is rarely sung.
    When I was teaching elementary music, every year, around Sept. 14, the birthday of the song, I taught the story behind it. The song becomes even more important when you understand the story behind it.

  • libertytrain

    Stunning and the other thing was the video showed the crowd. Looked like a real fine mix of folks from all ages – colors and creeds. Not what the left keeps saying about the Tea Party folk.

  • Bob Kirby

    THANK YOU, MY SINGING USMC FRIEND, FOR REMINDING ME OF THE SECOND VERSE OF OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM! AS KIDS IN GRADE SCHOOL IN SAN DIEGO, WE USED TO SING BOTH VERSES….AND….THE WORDS TO BOTH WERE HANGING ON A POSTER THAT WAS NEVER TAKEN DOWN, AND COULD BE READ EASILY BY THE
    KID IN THE FARTHEST CORNER OF THE ROOM. TEARS OFTEN CAME AS I SANG IT.

    THE SECOND VERSE OF OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM SAYS FAR MORE ABOUT AMERICA
    THAN THE FIRST.

    THE SECOND VERSE OF OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM REPRESENTS EVERYTHING THE
    MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND THE TURNCOAT CONGRESS HATES ABOUT AMERICA!!!!

    IN THEIR HASTE TO BRING THEIR “CHANGE” TO US BY SHOVING GODLESS KARL MARX AND HIS SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM DOWN OUR THROATS, THEY FORGOT ONE THING….
    A HUGE AMOUNT OF AMERICANS STILL BELIEVE IN THE PRINCIPLES CONTAINED
    IN THE SECOND VERSE OF THE NATIONAL ANTHEM…AND THEY AIN’T GOIN’ DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT! THIS TIME THE ENEMY IS WITHIN!

Once and for all, let’s sweep the trash out of OUR WHITE HOUSE AND BOTH CHAMBERS – -in the future, let’s be extra careful who and what we elect TO REPRESENT US – -let’s make them sign a “CONTRACT TO AMERICA” and if they break one clause of the contract, demand instant recall, or impeachment! Let US all give thanks to our Creator and not be misled, ever again.

    I don’t know when I have been so moved! The fact that Louis is a Marine helps, too. My eldest son was a Marine. I wish he could have heard that, he would have been so proud! Me,too! I rarely cry, but I did this time.

    It was warming to see the people stand up and place their hand over their hearts for this outstanding Former Marine. I’m an old grizzled Retired Army Sergeant and Buddy, I’d stand shoulder to shoulder with you anytime to defend what you have just sung.

  • Frank

    This was a great video and the man sung the second stanza beautifully. America is based on truth, and freedom. Both given by God in the highest heaven. Until we return to God and love him over all things including our country, then and only then will we regain the truth and freedom that we were all born with and gifted by a loving Father and shall once again become a nation self ruled by it’s individuals and not ruled by a minority who seeks power and status amongst the minions of Satans followers who’ve slithered their way into our freedoms and truths, to reap the benefits of hard working free Americans, who need no rules to live in harmoney with each other, as God intended all his children to live. May any who read understand.

      If the Tea Party members were the red necks the libs think they are they would have thought the last four words of the National Anthem are, “gentlemen start your engines”. I wonder how many Americans know that there is a second verse. God Bless Mr. Louis for reminding us.

  • Barb

    Wow it made me cry and gave me cold chills at the same time. I was just lamenting on another post how much we need heroes and Mr. Lewis you ARE a true American hero! Thank you for your service and for this very special second verse to our beloved National Anthem! I just wish we had a few hundred thousand more heroes out there with more than a beautiful voice! But this is a start!

    Thank you Mr. Louis for reminding us!!!!!You are a real American.

  • Joey Davis

    I am still weeping with gratitude for Mr. Louis and those that stood for the truth and for his courage to proclaim that truth by singing a verse from our national anthem. I am encouraged to see that there is a growing number of patriotic citizens that understand our nation was established by the providence of God and will can only remain a nation of free men if we return to him, our founder, provider, protector and Lord.

    To God be the glory!

  • Save America Susie

    I noticed that everyone who commented here said they had tears or cried or had extreme pride in America after they hear this retired US Marine sing the 2nd verse of our national anthem.

    That reminds me of that part in the Bible’s Old Testament where the Hebrews found the lost scrolls, and rediscovered what God’s word said, and they all cried.

    We have forgotten why we should be grateful for America Freedoms. Now we are rediscovering the Founding Fathers fire & true patriotism. That seemed to be the case after 9/11, but then many let it slip away again. 9/11 was the turning point for me, to refresh my heart, and I have held that in my heart all these years, and am re-reading the life stories of the Founders.

    * By the way, tune into Glenn Beck’s TV show every Friday, and he has the stories of the lives of the Founding Fathers on called:
    “Founders Fridays”. We need to get back to the basics we have either forgotten or never knew!

    • Doc Sarvis

      From FactCheck.org:
      FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate. We conclude that it meets all of the requirements from the State Department for proving U.S. citizenship. Claims that the document lacks a raised seal or a signature are false. We have posted high-resolution photographs of the document as “supporting documents” to this article. Our conclusion: Obama was born in the U.S.A. just as he has always said.

      Update, Nov. 1: The director of Hawaii’s Department of Health confirmed Oct. 31 that Obama was born in Honolulu.

  • M Wood

    As i saw the people start to rise, and remove their hats, i was very proud. I have wondered for years, why so many men fail to remove their hats, at a time like this.. As a child in the 1950′s we were taught to do this by our teachers, But we also recited the pledge of alegiance. Where has that gone??? I watch Nascar, and for years the person who gave the Invocation, mostly, just started.. Over time they have started to ask, “Please stand and remove your hats “.. And the croud complies,, They just need to be reminded, until it becomes habit. If i am in a crowd, i ask the person who does not remove his hat, to please do so. Very few do not, when asked politely..
    PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY,,, every afternoon at 3: p.m. m

      I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution [DAR], ancestors who fought in the American Revolution, and at every meeting we pledge allegiance to the flag, sing the National Anthem, and pray. It thrills me to be able to do these things, to give attention and honor to our forefounders and our wonderful country! Sometimes the Sons of The American Revolution [SAR] present the “Color Guard”, and sometimes “Boy Scouts” do. sometimes we just have a flag standing in the room to pledge.
      It is good for my soul.

      • Deborah

        Hello,
        What and the others in your group are doing is wonderful! Just one thing, you should be pledging your allegiance to the constitution, not a flag. You may want to check the history of that pledge to the flag, it is not as honorable as you think.

    YES YES YES! I was exposed to the full verses of the star spangled banner a few years ago and was moved to tears. it is a POWERFUL and MOVING declaration of what it means to be a patriot in this country. We’ve lost much of this. but read it/sing it for yourself it’s the stuff that this country deserves/demands and was founded on.

    http://www.usa-flag-site.org/song-lyrics/star-spangled-banner.shtml

  • Don Ramon

    Loved the singing but it’s actually the 4th verse.

    O! say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
    What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
    O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
    And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
    O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

    On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
    Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
    What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
    As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
    Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
    In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
    ‘Tis the star-spangled banner, O! long may it wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
    That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
    A home and a country should leave us no more!
    Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
    No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
    Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
    Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
    Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
    And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave![12]

    [edit] Additional Civil War period lyrics
    In indignation over the start of the Civil War, Oliver Wendell Holmes[13] added a fifth stanza to the song in 1861 which appeared in songbooks of the era.[14]

    When our land is illumined with liberty’s smile,
    If a foe from within strikes a blow at her glory,
    Down, down with the traitor that tries to defile
    The flag of the stars, and the page of her story!
    By the millions unchained,
    Who their birthright have gained
    We will keep her bright blazon forever unstained;
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave,
    While the land of the free is the home of the brave

    I wish the T-Party people would join hands with their neighbors, regardless of party affiliation. We are ALL Americans and we MUST stand together to stop the New World Order. Dispense with the useless bickering as promoted by the FRAUDULENT media, get a grip and find common ground with the DEMOCRITES. We are NOT the enemy, never were. I left the party and dislike the REPUBLICONS just as much. I want something that works and what we have is a criminal run failure, after failure, lie after lie, fist over fist. How stupid! When all is said and done, we all want the same things. We will be one huge force to be reckoned with if we can ever get together. Get it done, talk about politics to EVERYONE, eevery day, in every way. Debate and find our real power….TOGETHER. That way we can fight the real enemy and maintain our freedom. There is NO other way.

  • Linda Lee

    Since we are going down does it really matter who is at the helm? I think every president and cabinet in history have done what the Bilderberg Group instructed them to do so far. Each one has chipped away huge chunks of our freedom, has stolen our money and has tapped into our rights. It makes me sick thinking about it. All of it for MONEY and greed.

    I’m from South Africa and I had tears in my eyes listening to this.

    Everyone knows the struggle we are presently experiencing over here. I did not initiate, justify or support Apartheid, yet as a white South African male I am being persecuted both mentally and physically by a socialist and blatantly corrupt government. We cannot get jobs because of affirmative action. Thousands of jobs are given to untrained, inexperienced people that either break, screw-up or steal everything they touch.

    Countrywide, crime is so bad, people don’t venture out their homes anymore. South Africa has the unfortunate tag of being know collectively as the MURDER as well as the RAPE capital of the world.
    Petty crime is no longer even investigated and schedule one offenses (murder, robbery, rape etc) have become so common that only one in every ten crimes is solved.

    The farmers have had most of their land expropriated by the government, same as in Zimbabwe and Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF. The thing is, white owned commercial farm where productive and one farmer family could produce enough to sustain hundreds of thousands of people. Now 100 black families have been given that same farm and through subsistence farming, only provide for themselves. That’s only 1000 people INSTEAD of 500,000. EVERY SINGLE EXPROPRIATED FARM HAS FAILED AND SOME HAVE BEEN BAILED OUT BY THE GOVERNMENT MORE THAN ONCE.

    The clincher is, that the balance of the white farmers are being slaughtered like chickens for their land. This subject is actually going to the HAGUE as GENOCIDE of white farmers in South Africa and is being kept so secret through the media.

    Enough South African ramblings, this spontaneous outburst of song was a powerful showing of true patriotism and I so pray that my country could learn more from it.

    Thanx to all, pls contact me with any comments.

    Even if you don’t believe in Christian beliefs, credit must be given for what made this country great above all others, the Christian values that were behind our founding fathers design for a new free world where one could worship (or not) as they pleased.

    Obama, though he claims to have joined Christianity has publicly shown over and over that he is a jihad Muslim out to destroy everything America stands for. Nobama is a disgrace to this country and especially to all those that served and are serving to protect this country from the likes of Nobama.

    This makes me even more proud to have served in our nations Army in the first war over in the sandbox. You know, it’s sad that so many in this nation do not know there is more than one verse to the National Anthem. I understand shortening it for as often as it is sung, but they should at least teach it at one point or another to our children.

    Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
    What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
    O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?

    Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
    What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
    As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

    As I listened to Mr Louis’s singing, I felt a chill run up my back and hair stand on end. Not only for the pride I felt for our country but also the disgust of the perversion of our Constitution that the left in Washington and media try to cram down our throats everyday.

    Richard, Religeon has always been in our GOVERNMENT until Obama got there and a few others I might add. Each GOV official gives an oath ON THE BIBLE. if you do not believe that your business do not even try to give me that. Each of the STATES that rattified the CONSTITUTION said BY THE GRACE OF GOD OR THE CREATOR WE SIGN THIS DUCUMENT or words to that affect they even used the CAPITAL as a church on Sunday so take that & read the book about how & what they said before YOU tell us to take RELIGEON out of GOVERNMENT

    Not only is this beautifully rendered it is CORRECTLY sung. Religious hymns and the National Anthem should always be sung AS WRITTEN, and not according to the whims of the singer. Another thing, I don’t believe I have ever heard the second verse sung before, although I have seen it in print. Thank you so very much,

  • Stone

    Wow, We change for the better, no more War, if this is God’s Land then why are we keeping other children of God from entering God’s Land ? The Consitutition was written for it’s time. The amenments is for the time have change. We can not keep Government and Religion apart. It is together within the People. Great voice but I am going to leave it as that (:

  • Monty B

    We need to teach people not to be afraid to sing or talk about our country. We need to teach people in this country to respect it if not leave and we can be a good country again like it was in the 60s, We need to be proud of what we are not afraid of what we have become if we don’t we are going to loose what we have and it is very precious to us, we need a president that will listen to the people not the people listening to him, we need someone who is from the pore to lead us they know what it is like to be in our situation, I am very proud to see a person get up and sing like this it make me very proud to be and American god bless America forever,

  • Mike

    Once a Marine, Always a Marine……URAAAAAAAAH!
    GOD bless this TRUE AMERICAN…..from a former ARMY soldier…

  • Janet Munroe

    Most of you are a bunch of misinformed idiots. You should not use “God’s” name in any of your useless rambling.

    • BLUEEYESOL

      Well, Janet, instead of name calling and slander, why don’t you enlighten us with what you feel about this Marine’s singing of the Star Spangled Banner and what you think about God and our country?

  • Dave Williams

    As a former U.S.Marine myself. I can say “I expected that” from fellow Marine.

  • Sandy Bootz

    THANK GOD for all Americans who believe in our founding principles,
    especially for that amazing “patriot”!

  • Dale S

    We are not a Christian nation. We are a nation made up of Christians and many other religions, and none at all. The first amendment of our constitution gives all American citizens the right to speak as they please and worship as they please providing it doesn’t violate the rights of the next person. Our servicemen fought for this freedom and to change it would mean they fought in vain for this particular freedom.

    As an independent between 2 parties, I understand issues from both sides. On one hand, people want God to be everywhere. On the other hand, there are those who object to having religion (or other denominations thereof) imposed upon them. When we impose our values onto others, it makes us less free and certainly not much different than some Muslim extremist groups or even communists.

    Neither religion nor the government gives us morals, although they play a part. It’s our parents, and always has been our parents. We’ve been taught the word “no” at a very early age. That word (and its meaning) has and always will be passed down from generation to generation. We just need to keep teaching our children right from wrong and how to someday pass that onto their own children. At the same time, it’s important to teach children what freedom means and allow them to excercise it, after all, they will one day take over this nation.

    There is no more disorder in today’s world today than there was yesterday and many years before. As our population grows, groups which were once an invisible minority become more visible and outspoken. We need to remember that the world population has grown over 500% since the 50′s. Where gay people once numbered in the hundreds in each city, now they number in the thousands. Likewise with criminals, deviants, athiests, wiccans, Hindus, Muslims, people of various ethnic backgrounds, and so on. Society isn’t really getting worse. It’s just becoming more tolerant of other peoples’ freedoms and that’s what being an American is all about. We need to change with the times and adapt to them. Embrace them, but remember what was free for us needs to be free for others. Freedom belongs to everyone in our country, not just the majority.

    Who are we to judge certain religions? Muslims believe in God just as Christians do. In fact, many Muslims have more respect for the Christian faith than they do the Jewish faith. They recognize Christ and respect him as they do their own prophet. We’ve become judgmental toward a religion/political system based on what we’ve seen from the media. We’ve managed to condemn something without really understanding what exactly it is. Has anyone even read the Quran word for word? Has anyone sat down and had dinner with a Muslim? I am not Muslim but I see so much prejudice against them. The Muslim extremists don’t represent the entire Muslim faith just as Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, and Jehovah’s witnesses don’t represent the entire Christian faith.

    Government and religion doesn’t always go hand in hand. One of the commandments tells us that we shouldn’t kill. Well, every marine knows that this is unavoidable during wartime. In fact, our marines are trained and prepared to do just that. The Bible tells us to love our enemies but yet we still execute criminals and we kill enemies overseas. To swear upon the Bible is to know what it stands for and to abide by its laws.

    I don’t dispute the tea party movement or the nice job this guy did singing what I believe is the 4th verse of the national anthem. The only way this nation will go to ruin is if we the people let it. Let’s keep up the fight for our freedom and our liberties, but let’s not pick and choose which parts of our constitution should remain and which should be changed. It’s our constitution that guarantees us certain freedoms and protects us from tyranny. I give nothing but thanks and high praise for every single soldier who fought and who died for this freedom.

  • Darlene Dukelow-Burton

    Have You Noticed:
    The songs and the famous statues’ and memorials’ quotes ~ that have been left off – deleted – glossed over – ignored (to be ‘politically correct’ whatever that wussy description means), have disappeared? Our American Citizens have every right to see & hear them, to be up there in their entirety!!!
    Example: If you go and visit FDR’s speech at some war memorials, you will see that ‘under God’ has been chiseled OFF! HOW can you CHANGE what he SAID??? As if he didn’t say it??? That phrase was his PLEDGE to the Nation at that awful moment in History!
    This Nation’s was united ‘under God’ because individual FREEDOM was what was important! What God you believe in, whatever your spiritual symbol, is your choice. Whether you believe in a God – is your choice. You still should have that FREEDOM to choose what you want. It is an American’s Right. WE are Americans. THIS is the Point!

  • Missy

    Wonderful.

  • http://OutlookExpress Lois Barger

    Everytime I hear our National Anthem tears well up in my eyes and I sure don’t understand the way our country is going. Just terribly sad that we have such awful ones running this wonderful country. Come November, sure hope people wake up and vote for good ones in our White House!

    Lois Barger

  • Suzanne Van Over

    How wonderful to see such a proud and brave man stand and express his heart felt feelings. May God truly bless him. When I watched as he proudly sang, one after another stood with their hands upon their hearts, awesome! In these troubled times how refreshing to see someone stand and be a real American ! Thank you sir………..

  • Neil C. Reinhardt

    1. I find it really rather funny when a person who beliwve in one, or more of the 25,000 NAMED “Gods” which we humans have invented so far says: “THEY SEARCH FOR TRUTH!”

    As ANYONE who ACTUALLY searches for the TRUTH & does so with an OPEN MIND, becomes an Atheist! Like all the Millions of FORMER Christians who have become ATHEISTS!

    2. Anyone who has more than just a superficial knowledge of American History knows the United Staed was NOT Founded by Christians or on any Christian Principals.

    They know nearly all of our “Founding Fathers” WERE NOT “Christians” rather they were DEISTS!
    And they know a 1779 Treaty clearly states:

    “The United States of America is NOT founded on the Christan Religion, Nor is it a Christian
    Nation!”

    3. OuR “National Motto” was NOT written in the late 1950′s by some Programmed Religious Robot Chirstians. Then, they further went against the Most Important of our Founders prinicpals, the “Seperation of Church & State” with their “In God We Trust” CRAP on OUR money and “Under God”
    BS in OUR Pledge.

    Hey Christians, KEEP YOUR RELIGION out of where it DAMN WELL DOES NOT BELONG!

    Your actions are both SELFISH and INCONSIDERATE of the more than EIGHTY Million members of other religions as well as the over 30 million of us with NO religion.

    • Nancy

      I have searched for the truth and after searching, I have returned to what I was originally taught. I am not an atheist by any stretch of the imagination. I am a Christian, by choice.

      What about a power higher than yourself scares you Neil?

    • http://naver samurai

      You are full of doo doo Neil! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • Kevin M

    Geez folks, get a clue please. God hates politics just as much as He hates religion. And that is from the bible. God did not found this country; and besides God gave us all free choice. You have no right to take it away from anyone.

  • MizMackie

    Incredibly moving. We must prevail in November folks.

  • Robin McLaughlin

    There is HOPE for us yet!

  • Ric Holland

    to kevin m.
    news to you pal. the government is taking away our rights a little more every day. when they want something, all they have to do is PASS A LAW. I love this U.S.A. with all my heart but i hate our so-called government. I served this country during the Viet Nam “conflict” and was proud to do so. But I have watched the steady degradation of this great land and the whittling down of our God given rights ever since. It’s amazing and terrifying when I read some of the laws and acts passed by our leaders. They used to govern but now they RULE. No government can bestow “rights” on a people, they can only take them away. And we areletting them.

  • Donna DeSopo

    He made me cry. A former Marine — one of the few and the proud–is watching are great nation collapse under a Marxisit/progressive administration. You can hear the passion and love of country in every word. It’s time we sing the 2nd verse and let it sink into the fabric of our being. Let those who are “the enemies within” know that we will stand against them. The time is now. And we must prevail. Or we will have no county, no flag, and no freedom. God bless and protect us all.

  • John

    It’s interesting that there is a Comment Policy that says, inter alia: “but we will not tolerate racism, profanity or slanderous comments,” yet the following rantings of an obviously unstable individual are left on the post:
    “Anti American, Anti God ,Anti Constitution Jews”
    “Perversion Forinacaters Fagots”
    “One More Anti american Anti god anti Christ Zionist Jew who plans the total destruction of America”
    By the way, I believe in the Almighty as much if not more than any of those wackos who call for some kind of Christian revolution. The difference is that I don’t need or want my government to give me my dose of religion. I’ll get as much as I want and need from my house of worship, my clergy, my Bible and my own prayers. The beauty of America is my freedom to pray as much and as often as I want, as well as another’s freedom to pray as little as he wants. Government sponsored religious recitations, etc. do not advance the cause of religion.

  • Robert

    I’m sure a number of you will agree that our goal as a Christian nation must be to restore peace, disarm the population, enforce Christian law and defend the integrity and Christian character of America.

  • Robert

    By the way, this is how that quote was originally written: “restore peace, disarm the population, enforce Sharia (Islamic law) and defend the integrity and Islamic character of Afghanistan.” – Taliban
    Ho many of you thought that was a great idea when it was written above?

  • Dan Hudson

    Edited Reply….

    Plusaf, You, not Paul are the pitiful one. You really show your character when you criticize a fellow human for not being as educated as think you are. Have you any idea what his circumstances in life are? You criticize without wisdom or even knowledge.

    You are wrong about our founding fathers being Deists. True some were, but far from being in the majority. You are not well read on that topic, yet you spout forth words as if you were. Even misspelled words such as also “alwo” and mouths “mouthes”. Check them out in a dictionary. Even if you know better, you should edit all your writing. You are a little sloppy, don’t you think? Probably more so than your claim against Paul. Is not Paul a proper name? Most people begin proper names with capital letters.

    Did you really think your response to Paul was so power packed that he would be humiliated and all your readers would be motivated to better their education and then deny Jesus, all because you thought that your reply was worth printing?

    I hope that your comment that you are god is not your real belief. Typically people like you that deny God, you are guilty of that arn’t you, think that man is the highest being that exists. Such thought opens the door to lofty claims, one of which you made even if only to make a point. Then we should consider your argument that one cannot prove that you are not god. It seems that any god would have superior powers to yours. I don’t see much power expressed in your writing. Could there be more hidden somewhere? I doubt it.

    Educate yourself. Start by reaching for the position of Deist. That position you recognize. Knowledge first then strive for wisdom. God gives wisdom to those who ask in faith. Maybe you are too blind and deaf to realize the wisdom you are lacking. From the level of Deist, you will have a short climb to full stature before the true living God of this universe. Make no mistake, do not be decieved, God is not mocked without penalty. Now, if you have any wisdom at all, seek His face today, for today is the day of salvation. It is true, “Jesus Saves”. He also changes a persons character. Oh, by the way, one more sloppyness on your part, The letter I is usually written as a capital letter when it refers to a person. Increase your wisdom and knowledge before attacking again. You will not look so pitiful.

  • Mo

    Another awesome Marine. So grateful for real American men – that’s what I’M talking about!!! A man who served his country, knows our history, and knows our Creator. I thank God for men like this and pray the “intellectual” males of our country could embrace the truth like this man does.

  • http://yahoo Marilynne

    Absolutely beautiful, God Bless America and His children

  • Ben

    Thank you Bob for providing an opportunity to respond to such a profound display of patriotism and reminder of who we owe our gratitude to. God who is the Great Creator of Heaven and earth has blessed this great nation to be a choice land for freedom. A land where even the choice to worship as we choose exists. Even a choice to believe in evolution or any other opinion as how we came to exist, but freedom none the less… To voice an opinion with out fear of being punished. Thank you again & thanks to the Marine who sang that song so beautifully. Just one more note…when we sing this in our church on Sunday, we do sing that verse as well.
    Ben & Valerie

    Thanks for the interesting things you have unveiled in your post. One thing I’d really like to touch upon is that FSBO connections are built over time. By launching yourself to owners the first end of the week their FSBO is usually announced, ahead of the masses start calling on Mon, you develop a good link. By mailing them equipment, educational supplies, free records, and forms, you become the ally. By taking a personal curiosity about them in addition to their problem, you generate a solid relationship that, on most occasions, pays off in the event the owners opt with a representative they know along with trust – preferably you actually.
