Thomas Paine

     “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. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated….

…America did not, nor does not want force; but she wanted a proper application of that force. Wisdom is not the purchase of a day, and it is no wonder that we should err at the first setting off. From an excess of tenderness, we were unwilling to raise an army, and trusted our cause to the temporary defence of a well-meaning militia. A summer’s experience has now taught us better…”

  1.      “Too many people simply love to pile on, when it comes to dismissing, then vilifying Americans. Never understanding, nor realizing the underlying truth of why things are going the way they are going. Easy-peasy, all pile-on, and hate away at the so-called hatred being viewed as coming from Americans. Americans, who love ‘guns’ and ‘bombs’, and killing foreigners even more than they love killing each other, eh?

    Hogwash, thrown at us wholesale, by outsiders, even outsiders born here yet who’s hearts live elsewhere, who truly haven’t a single clue to their names. Never seeing Americans as genuinely loving and caring people, for the most part, who trusted too much in a govt. that has now been co-opted by lefties, and neo-con-artists, who’s agenda does not include keeping the constitution of the United States intact at all, and who’s hearts have been replaced by self-righteous self-interest, minus any genuine wisdom whatsoever.

    It’s tough, I know, to watch as the lefty/neo-con-filled govt. that pretends to be American, and to represent our country, literally causes the devastation witnessed in the mideast, while you simply overlook, and forget all about, the sacrifices made by our countrymen during both world wars, and beyond. While also watching as the U.N. deliberately used the U.S., and it’s military, to fight in Korea[the ‘war’/policeaction no one likes to even remember taking place], as well as when the criminals in W.D.C. threw us nearly bodily into Vietnam, after having our last great, country-loving president shot to death.

    No, just look at what fits your narrative, trash us all, and move back to good, old Canada. Where everyone is perfect, and your govt. is perfect. While so many of your countrymen move on down here, and win jobs in media, movies, and television, earning money they couldn’t earn back home. Then if war breaks out somewhere, and the U.S. is again told to get involved by the leftie/neo-con war-hawks in D.C., then they can all just move on back to Canada, where they’ll be safe and sound. Once the war is all over, though, they can move on back down here, and start earning all that money once again.

    Yes, Canadian actress, move back home, but look to your right and your left, because the “summer soldier” and the “sunshine patriot”, that Thomas Paine described in his paper penned on December 23, 1776, will be keeping company with you, since they are only citizens of the U.S. when it’s comfortable to be so. Never bother with trying to contribute in making American society better. Just tuck in that tail, and run back home where it’s safe, and warm, and your govt. will protect you from all evil. Evil generated here by those embraced by those like yourself–members of the vaunted left-hand-path, and the rotten neo-conned right.”
