Tea anyone?

I can't say that I've been overly committed to this act of blogging, because I know that I haven't. I can't can't say that even when I have blogged that I've put down into words anything that is of any intrinsic value. Not really. I need to change that, at least for this one post. Maybe for other posts to come.

I need to speak of something that is of the most vital importance to our country. It is political, but it has nothing to do with party lines. Whether you are a staunch Republican or Democrat matters very little. What matters is your love for this country, The United States of America. The best country in the world.

What I have to say today has every thing to do with two powerful words. Patriotism and dissent.

Patriotism: love for or devotion to one's country.

Dissent: to differ in opinion.

We are at a precipice, right now, you and I, a turning point of grave importance. The video linked at the bottom of this article is of Bob Basso speaking to us as Thomas Paine, founding father, activist and author of Common Sense, and other pamphlets written during the American Revolution.

Reclaiming America the great, our America, is quite possibly the most important thing that you or I may ever endeavor to do. Watch the video and join the Second American Revolution. Step up and help us to be known as the greatest generation in American history.

Some people may say that to speak out against our President, our government, our leaders is un-American. Nothing could possibly be further from the truth. We, the citizens of the United States of America have a duty to question our leaders, to hold them accountable and to speak out when their actions are against the interests of this country.

If you love your country, then you are vested in its future. Don't be fooled and don't give in. Dissent is patriotic. It is possibly one of the greatest expressions of patriotism.


Now is the seedtime of continental union, faith and honor. The least fracture now, will be like a name engraved with the point of a pin on the tender rind of a young oak; the wound would enlarge with the tree, and posterity read in it full grown characters. ~Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776
