How many of us know the phrase, “Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country“? Maybe from a pre-1975 typing class? Back during those times it was an innocent seeming phrase from an unknown author used to teach junior high school kids to type. It was originally used to test and exhibit very early model typewriter performance and capability. I first learned it from my mother somewhere around 1961 or 1962 as I banged on her old pink Smith-Corona typewriter.
I had absolutely no idea this phrase would one day be so significant regarding the relentless assault against our country and our constitution!
I view the phrase much more personally now than I did back in the 60′s. I know for myself and hopefully that many other patriots will agree it should be revised to say, “Now is the time for this good man to come to the aid of My Country”.
For decades Republicans and Democrats alike have been co-opting this phrase to expand their power and grow the Federal Government, always to the detriment of the country. But they use different, subtler, sneaky and redefined words. We just have not been listening close enough.
Our current president and his administration disguise it daily with phrases like, “…to pay their fair share”, “…play by the same rules…”,”…level the playing field…”, or “…everyone has to sacrifice a little…”
House and Senate leaders of both parties use phrases like, “… get something done for the American People”, “…our plan cuts a ‘megagozillion’ dollars over ten years” or “…come together across the aisle…”
In the history of the country, can anyone name one piece of legislation that added to instead of diminishing liberty and freedom from one or more American’s? The mother of all abuses was “We have to pass it to know what’s in it“.
The most recent deception foisted upon the country is “…access to contraception…” invented solely by the Democrat party to deflect attention away from the administration’s position on abortion, more specifically their ongoing attempt to legalize infanticide.
When they elude “…come to the aid of their country” they mean something completely different than most Americans think. They never mean “aid” or “country” in a constitutionally compliant manner. Instead they mean for you to buck up and personally come to “Their” aid. Ergo, to pay for “Their” failed social programs, pet projects, “payola” to campaign contributors, favored classes of people or idealistically imagined vision of a Country that we would never recognize. Their subsequent actions always produce larger government, higher taxes, incredible waste and incremental loss of individual liberty and freedom with each new call to action.
Just consider that any one dollar bill sent through the front door of the Federal Government comes out the side or back door as less than forty cents. Special interest, theft or bureaucracy devours the other sixty cents. Even when states send money to the Fed for...
