“hey who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
I hate to get political, really I do, because for the most part I don’t care. My politics are pretty simple. Basically, they boil down to “stay out of my affairs and leave me the fuck alone”. So, what this means is modern politicians, on both sides of the aisle, do nothing for me; except maybe Ron Paul. He likes the constitution.
I’m a big fan of the founding fathers and the country they created. I mean, what’s not to like? They were a bunch of rowdy colonists who one day decided they didn’t want to pay their taxes. And then after they sent a strongly worded letter to the king, they decided to just go ahead and create their own country.
Now they had created a country of their very own. A country where they didn’t have to pay their taxes no more. Except, of course, one of the first things they did with their fancy new government was to create taxes. So, I guess that worked out well for them. But you know, if it wasn’t for their revolution so many years ago we’d all be speaking English and we wouldn’t have this little graphic:
I like this image. It says a lot about America. Americans, real Americans, are a bunch of assholes. Nothing is more American than being a complete jerk. And this is just another reason why America loves Kid Rock.
But back to the Delaware crossing.
George Washington rowed a boat across the river on Christmas. Why did he do this? Was he perhaps delivering presents to little kids? If only it were true. But no, George and his buddies took their little boat ride to go kill some Brittish people, on Christmas. Christmas! What’s more of a dick move than that? Even during World War I there was a truce on Christmas. Those eighteenth century Brits were probably sitting by the fire, enjoying some egg nog, singin carols, and waiting for Santa to come down the fort’s chimney. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, they all sprang from their beds to see what was the matter…
And that’s when George Washington killed them all.
He then sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight “America, Fuck Yeah! And to all a good night!”
This is what the United States of America was built upon. America was founded by a bunch of loony tax evading assholes. This is the spirit of America. So, naturally, I can understand why people would be pissed off when the government gets larger, squashes the rights of the people, and flat out ignores the constitution. Americans love freedom. The freedom to do whatever they want. The freedom to be an asshole. Real Americans, carrying the still burning torch of the Spirit of America, the Spirit of ’76, should not stand for the government telling them what to do…
“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
…and they should love Kid Rock
