America is not a place, it is a set of ideals. All it takes to become an American is to embrace these ideals. As far as I am concerned, Bibi Netanyahu is an American. I would further venture to say that even if one were born in America, that is not enough. If one has spent their entire life undercutting, demeaning and undermining these same values, they have become something other than American, they have become an ideologue and deserving of the title traitor. Now, if such person is not in the government there is little that can be done, but if that person were to be the President of the United States, that would be grounds for investigation of treason, in my opinion.
I don't expect anyone to bring Barack Obama up on charges of treason, nor would I suggest that route, that would be giving him too much weight in the overall scheme of things, taking his impact on this nation a step further than he deserves. It would be plenty just to dump him off of his throne and treat him like an ordinary person, that would bother him more than any trial where he might justify his actions.
I am not talking about patriotism here. Americanism is an obedience to the Constitution, a reverence for it, a willingness to comply with it, to honor it. There has been a great movement of late to destroy Americanism, to replace it with some sort of quasi-Europeanism. An understanding of Americanism has waned. Do you know what it is? John Wayne was an American, before the 1960's generation tried to dismantle his creed and replace it with someone they found more noble, someone like John Lennon.
I was asked one time by a preacher if I wouldn't like world peace. I told him "no sir, I wouldn't like that at all." He was a bit surprised and asked me why I wouldn't care for world peace. My answer to him is something you all should think about when people speak of peace. The only way for the world to find peace is through oppression. Anywhere ideas are free to be expressed there will be disagreement, conflict and war. Peace can only be purchased by oppression and tyranny. Peace is preferred by those willing to do anything other than endure conflict. They value peace over freedom. They prefer your imprisonment over their discomfort.
Whether you realize it or not you are being asked if you are an American. Many of your brethren have chosen to be Idol Watchers, or Sports Watchers. They have chosen to distract themselves. Don't worry about them, they are of no use to you or to your enemies. They are the lost and malleable. Others have held onto their former allegiances to their homeland. But, you are being asked everyday if you are an American. You know what it takes to be one. SO, are you? Can you prove it? What are you willing to do to ensure it? The fact is that question is right now going unanswered. Silence. It ain't no, yet, but it ain't yes, either.
The longer that question goes unanswered, the more it will take to answer it. They are making laws against being American and have been for a long time. When you decide to be an American, it may be too late, it may be completely illegal. What will you do then? Or, are you just too proud to be an American anymore? It might be too much trouble, it might make you unpopular.
