    Thankful for fading freedoms

    Abraham Lincoln once said, "Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves."

    But what if those who restrict our freedoms are the very people who are in charge of securing them?

    Over just the last year, Washington has worked double-time to limit your liberties, despite such reductions being cloaked under the guise of governmental progress.

    First and foremost, Washington has reduced our freedoms and restricted our future by heaping upon our posterity astronomical amounts of debt, trying to jump-start the credit circus in our economy. Despite borrowing $787 billion from China to stimulate the economy with a promise to cap unemployment at 8 percent, unemployment has climbed to 10.2 percent and shows no sign of decreasing. And right now a record 14 percent of homeowners are either in foreclosure or behind at least one mortgage payment.

    (Thanks to Ron Paul and others, last Thursday a House panel decided to audit the Federal Reserve, finally providing some accountability to this financial runaway train that doles out billions to whomever it pleases. Even with this mandatory audit, however, the Fed's monetary policy deliberations will still need to be reined in. I recommend two insightful and strategic books toward that goal: Ron Paul's "End the Fed" and Vox Day's "The Return of the Great Depression.")

    Because of all their excessive spending, bailouts and borrowing, Washington has further restricted our financial freedoms by decreasing the value of the dollar. Since just March 2009, the U.S. Dollar Index, which measures the strength of the dollar against other major currencies, plunged more than 15 percent, making U.S. stocks also cheaper for foreign investors.

    Washington is also reducing our medical choices or freedoms by mandating a government option upon all of us.

    Despite the biggest economic recession since the Great Depression, like a ramrod, Washington believes it's also a good time to force another $1 trillion on American taxpayers by providing another governmental entitlement called universal health care. In so doing, Washington is further reducing our financial freedoms and slowing future economic recovery by placing even more increased debt and taxes upon Americans to pay for yet another social program.

    To add insult to injury, Washington is also going around the back door to provide illegals with universal health care by seeking their amnesty. Not only will Americans pay for another 14 million people's government health care, but amnesty will also reduce the number of jobs available to legal citizens by adding more to the legal workforce (and demand for better jobs) and simultaneously slow down the rate of the unemployed being re-employed.

    (Ask your representatives to support H.R. 615, which expresses that all members of the House who vote in favor of the establishment of a federal government health-insurance option are urged to forgo their right to participate in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and agree to enroll under that public option as well. There are 97 co-sponsors thus far.)


    Washington has also reduced our speech freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment by passing a hate-crimes bill that was appended to the 2010 National Defense Authorization Act, potentially criminalizing conservative free speech if it can be proven to have contributed to assaults based upon sexual orientations.

    The White House has even reduced religious freedoms by belittling America's rich Judeo-Christian heritage, enabling a secular progressive and pro-Islamic agenda, and remaining indifferent to issues such as the ACLU's disposal of veteran memorial crosses in the Mojave Desert and at Mount Soledad. They also turn a blind eye to the whitewashing of our godly heritage from Washington's historic landmarks and on U.S. artifacts.

    Washington will also restrict religious freedoms and freedoms of conscience by forcing pro-life citizens to pay for abortions via universal health care.

    Washington has also reduced our Second Amendment firearm freedoms by appointing anti-gun advocates like Justice Sotomayor or OSHA's David Michaels, by seeking to micromanage gun ownership via proposed legislation like H.R. 45 and by politics-as-usual, like blaming guns rather than Islamic extremism for the shootings at Fort Hood. (Those who believe that the Second Amendment is a foundational right and freedom might want to consider my new "limited edition Chuck Norris tribute revolver" on their Christmas wish list.)

    Washington has also reduced our freedoms by increasing the threats to our country via the delay in response to our generals' requests for more troops in Afghanistan, allowing Gitmo detainees and terrorists to come to the U.S., and enabling homegrown terrorists like Maj. Nidal Hasan within the very fabrics of our military.

    As I consider these many freedom robbers and the political culprit enabling them all, I can't help but think of a country song, the lyrics of which are:

    What can they all be thinkin' Wanna take the cross off of the hill
    Put away the pledge of allegiance
    Lord, just the thought gives me a chill
    They can take God off our money but, in the end oh ain't it funny
    How we're all gonna see him on the Judgment Day
    So sing it loud
    One more time
    Hear what I say
    When you got the truth inside, now they can't take that away
    One more time
    'cause it ain't too late
    Hold on to what you believe 'cause they can't take that
    They can't take that away

    As I experience the loss of American freedoms, two more thoughts repeatedly come to my mind.

    The first is from Daniel Webster, who said, "The contest for ages has been to rescue liberty from the grasp of executive power." Since the Revolution itself, I believe we are in the fight of our lives for American freedoms. I don't know who said it, but I definitely prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.

    The second thought is one attributed to M. Grundler: "It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you."

    I don't think I've ever been as thankful for American freedoms as I am now. I must admit that I'm also appallingly alarmed that some of them might not exist at all by this time next year. Like a sunset dropping over the horizon of our founders' dreams, so our freedoms are vanishing from view.

    So if you lack something for which to be thankful this Thanksgiving, I'm recommending that we give thanks for our freedoms, for they're fading fast and possibly soon to join the endangered species lists. The truth is: Food is far more plentiful than our freedoms at this point.

    You don't need to be eloquent, just bow your head and say from your heart this simple prayer a good friend wrote and sent to me:

    God is great
    Guns are good,
    Let us thank them for our food and freedoms.
    Amen.
