History Does Repeat Itself

We are often told that if we forget the past then we are doomed to repeat it. The past is not such a bad thing to repeat when it was a good thing. It is difficult for me to bear quietly the foolishness of people who wish to "change" something simply because we live in a new time or because it old fashioned or antiquated.

Solomon was right when he said there is nothing new under the sun. There isn't. A wise man will understand the events that surround him and make decisions based upon what it RIGHT...a rather arcane concept to those on the left these days...rather that making his decisions based upon what feels good.

Obama and the far left extremists do not live by these words. They have their agenda and they are bound and determined to see it through whether its the right thing to do or not. Petulant teens, I tell you, petulant teens.

Well, for the better part of a year now, Patriots from around the country have found themselves on fire to push back against this man who would be king. There were a lot of speeches and yelling and protests at townhall meetings all over the country. And yet they wouldn't listen. There were two million who marched right into their backyards and still they wouldn't listen.

Polls began to show they were losing popular support, still they wouldn't listen. Then there was Virginia and New Jersey Ironically, two of the original thirteen states who began the original revolution against another king. And yet, they still wouldn't listen.

Now, in of all places, Massachusetts, where the original Revolution began. Massachusetts where they had the original Tea Party and the Boston Massacre. Massachusetts, where the original shots heard round were first shot, has now become, ironically, the place where those same shots have once again been heard round the world.

Will they be heard, however, in the White House and the Capital Building in Washington? I think its impossible for them not to have heard them. Will they heed their warning and avoid further repetition from two hundred plus years ago or will we be sitting here reading more about the repetition of our country's great history.

We, as a country, are beginning to realize that when you're the greatest country on earth, you really should be repeating the history that made you so great in the first place. Where's George Washington? He's next to be repeated.
