Why Would A Political Party Want Its Leader To Fundamentally Transform America?

Is it because that party and its supporters hate the freedom of those independent individuals it can't control, obviously wanting them to either obey, go away or die? Or in the case of Donald Trump, a coup d'état?

The everyday colonial heroes who met the challenge in 1776 didn't change a nation. They created one! So then why did socialist candidate Obama and his progressive political party in 2008 say that when they took office they were going to "fundamentally transform" the United States of America, the two-word term meaning the country would become unrecognizable.

Will today's young Americans believe enough in what those patriots died for over 200 years ago? Will they stand up and protect what has been passed to them to ensure their children will inherit the same freedoms?

Or will arrogant young Americans, coming out of their safe spaces, want to tear down the monuments dedicated to those who sacrificed so much? And what of the retired men and women in the video below on this Veteran's Day? What do you think would be their answer to a government that has evolved to control almost every part of our lives today, progressives wanting even more?

A Soldier Died Today

Poem by A. Lawrence Vaincourt, 1987


"Author of 'Just A Common Soldier,' Larry Vaincourt, embarked upon his writing career first as a regular columnist for THE LACHUTE WATCHMAN.

"[Tony] is proud of his involvement with The USO, Building Homes for Heroes, The Wounded Warrior Project, NIAF, Sons of Italy in America, Police and Fire Department and many other charitable organizations." - Tony Lo Bianco Web Site - Biography


"He was getting old and paunchy and his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion, telling stories of the past.
Of a war that he had fought in and the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies; they were heroes, every one.

And tho' sometimes, to his neighbors, his tales became a joke,
All his Legion buddies listened, for they knew whereof he spoke.
But we'll hear his tales no longer for old Bill has passed away,
And the world's a little poorer, for a soldier died today.

He will not be mourned by many, just his children and his wife,
For he lived an ordinary and quite uneventful life.
Held a job and raised a family, quietly going his own way,
And the world won't note his passing, though a soldier died today.

When politicians leave this earth, their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing and proclaim that they were great.
Papers tell their whole life stories, from the time that they were young,
But the passing of a soldier goes unnoticed and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution to the welfare of our land
A guy who breaks his promises and cons his fellow man?
Or the ordinary fellow who, in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his Country and offers up his life?

A politician's stipend and the style in which he lives
Are sometimes disproportionate to the service that he gives.
While the ordinary soldier, who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal and perhaps, a pension small.

It's so easy to forget them for it was so long ago,
That the old Bills of our Country went to battle, but we know
It was not the politicians, with their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom that our Country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger, with your enemies at hand,
Would you want a politician with his ever-shifting stand?
Or would you prefer a soldier, who has sworn to defend
His home, his kin and Country and would fight until the end?

He was just a common soldier and his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us we may need his like again.
For when countries are in conflict, then we find the soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles that the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor while he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage at the ending of his days.
Perhaps just a simple headline in a paper that would say,
Our Country is in mourning, for a soldier died today."

Let's Take A Quick Walk Down Memory Lane


Never forget October 1, 2013, when President Obama and his Democrat Party barricaded the WWII Memorial from visiting Vets. But there's more . . .

Veterans storm World War II OUTDOOR Memorial in spite of the government shut down by President Obama. Part of the government shut down meant memorials across the nation would be closed. Bus loads of veterans from Iowa and Mississippi had other things in mind when they arrived to the closed World War II Memorial that had been surrounded by barricades in the people's city of Washington, DC. - YouTube

. . . or that President Obama, while the WWII Memorial was shut down, gave Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats permission to meet on the closed Mall with illegal aliens. Watch.

The arrogance of dangerous Democrat Party leaders who allowed a rally for illegal aliens cleared for the National Mall while the WWII Memorial was still closed. Speaker Nancy Pelosi even thanked President Obama for letting the rally go forward, but then lied suggesting the President had cleared the opening of the WWII Memorial, when he had not.

As FYI, two lone GOP House members sneaked in, Republican Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R) and Mario Diaz-Balart (R), who both supported the Dream Act and a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants. - Watch Video: KellyFile / FOXNews, October 9, 2013

. . . or the liberal's October 2010 "One Nation Rally," openly supported by President Obama and its Marxist literature left on The Mall, the WWII Memorial trashed.

What The Hell Was Going On When Obama Released Taliban Commanders Into The Field To Rescue A Deserter?!

On Veteran's Day – Please remember Sgt Derrick Miller who went to Leavenworth for killing a Taliban operative.

"Originally he was seen accompanied by two men whom he claimed to be his sons and helpers. However, both of these men left the perimeter without performing any work, and going separate directions to their village. These men were not present during Sgt. Miller’s questioning. While questioning the insurgent things began to get heated. The Afghan insurgent attempted to grab Sgt. Miller’s weapon, ultimately leading to him being shot and killed in the struggle.  The military has since identified the deceased as Atta Mohammed, but his name was not used in court.  The two men who escaped were later believed to have been carrying back detailed information to the insurgents with details as to how to most effectively attack." - Gateway Pundit
"As Obama continued to release Islamic terrorists right and left out of Gitmo, he never mentions our Sons who were sentenced to prison in Leavenworth for their defensive actions on the same battlefield." - GatewayPundit

"Bev Perlson, a military mother that has helped to release other soldiers thrown in prison for engaging the enemy, hoped Donald Trump would speak to this issue if he became President.

Ms. Perlson wrote:

I can tell you Americans out here in the homeland are outraged as the terrorists continue to be released and there is no relief for our Sons. I think Mr. Trump would garner tremendous support if he took a position on this and let the American people know our Sons deserve to go home too." - GatewayPundit


And never forget what the PC Army brass tried to do to retired Lt. Col Allen West before Obama was able to invent the Muslim terrorist protecting term, "Workplace Violence." West's action actually saved American lives in Iraq in 2002. But that didn't matter to these pension holders. - MilitaryCorruption
