A Hate So Strong

A Hate So Strong

 

Have you noticed that regardless of the subject matter or topic written about national pride, our nation’s heritage or about the economy somehow it comes back negatively about President Donald J. Trump? It seems that the vocabulary of the left is determined by the level of hate carried by the hearts and into the minds of those who act like parrots of misinformation.

 

Have you ever heard of anybody publicly criticizing their employer or place of employment without suffering immediate consequences when overheard by management? No! In real life that individual would be on the outside looking in wondering what happened as they begin seeking new work.

 

In sports the super-stars have some pretty big sponsor deals. They wear their brand prominently during official matches and are keen on having their brand photographed and promoted everywhere they go. What would happen if a player chose not wear their sponsors brand during a major sporting event? They would lose that sponsorship and all the money that goes with it. In the real world they would be cut back to 2nd or 3rd string, traded to another team or simply cut from the team as a violation of their contract.

 

In the military it is the same. Someone gripes and complains about their platoon or section or the unit in general or disrespect toward anyone of higher rank or position and they find themselves being disciplined by an extra workload or disciplined through the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) which could lead to a reduction in rank, time in the stockade or brig and even a bad conduct discharge.

 

In many nations around the world disrespect, griping or complaining about the government or the nation’s leadership is grounds for arrest and imprisonment or even death without a trial. There is no appeal after an execution.

 

Those are called the Rule of Law and ours is determined by the Constitution of the United States. In case you don’t know or haven’t heard there are certain things that are protected by or are punishable under the Constitution. Certain individual freedoms we call rights are protected and we call them “God Given” or inalienable rights – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. What has happened over the past 50 years is that these rights have been violated in many cases and sanctioned by the state or national government and has become acceptable.

 

Take for example the right to life – it is unlawful to kill someone, unless that someone is a baby in the protective womb of the mother, or in many states now someone who is terminally ill or the elderly. There is only one who is able to make those decisions of whether someone lives or dies and we are not worthy to even stand before HIS Judgment Seat.

 

Our Constitution provides for the imprisonment of individuals convicted of certain crimes, provided it is done according to our Rule of Law. This too has been violated every time someone is unjustly imprisoned or unlawfully detained without a trial resulting in the loss of their liberty or freedom.

 

Also implied in the Constitution is the pursuit of happiness which doesn’t mean at the expense of anyone else. Just because it makes you happy doesn’t make it protected under the Constitution. Some people become happy when they bully or harass another, some steal and kill, while still others run for political office and become enmeshed in the struggle for power over people even though the Constitution clearly provides the real power of government is retained by the people.

 

It is the people who have the right to bear arms, to vote, to own property and to protect themselves and their families. It is the people who have the right to determine their elected officials and to replace them. It is the people who have the right to worship Almighty God as they choose, according to the Constitution.

 

Over the course of time people mistakenly think that anything goes in a society that chooses self-government over chaos. There are those who make a sport of invoking chaos into well-structured and meaningful cities and towns across this nation we call home. These individuals choose to ignore the Rule of Law in America while choosing confrontation, fear and violence as their weapons. Their ignorance is astounding. They act as spoiled children hiding behind masks and in groups because they do not have the intestinal fortitude to stand on their own and articulate their point of view. Among all the rights we hold dear the one these people ignore and violate the most is the right to remain silent! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Alinsky’s Principles in Motion

7-14-2019

 

Alinsky’s Principles in Motion

 

Smoke and Mirrors is what President George H. W. Bush called it during the Operation Iraqi Freedom. It was making much ado out of nothing, and hitting the enemy where it hurt. It served its purpose quite well I might add but it’s really nothing new and Saul Alinsky laid claim to it in his Rules for Radicals doctrine which Hillary Clinton admired and along with Barack Obama they both used and still use today.

 

One of the principles is to identify your target (enemy). Since you can’t go after an abstract idea, you can personify that idea with a person. In this case you personify the National Anthem, the US Flag and the US Constitution with a single person – Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America.

 

Yes every ill that can be thought up can be attributed or blamed on Trump. It has worked before and brought down powerful men and women by sheer force. Politicians have a tendency to crumble and fall when placed in the spotlight. First they spend most of their time denying the accusations (which many times are totally false or fabricated), and their supporters come out of the woodwork in defense. Each of them becomes fresh targets of opportunity in the game of slugfest where the only one standing is the winner.

 

Alinsky said it was ok to use their own words and beliefs against them. He said like Christians defending the bible, they can’t because they don’t live up to it. He said to make noise, get things out there publicly and if needed make stuff up. The end justifies the means sort of thing.

 

Look at what has happened in almost all of Trumps appointments. They have been ridiculed, attacked and in some cases have been withdrawn. Others who are approved are still ridiculed and attacked while in office, causing some of these to resign. The ones who are summarily passed seem to have something akin to blackmail hanging over them and are not even challenged. Interesting don’t you think?

 

Personal attacks on the Trump family and name have been ferocious and non-stop since the announcement in Trump Tower back in 2015. Anyone else would have crumbled under them, yet Donald J. Trump is not anyone else now is he? He is a junkyard dog in a fight. He’s a man who loves to scrap and is famous for using publicity (good or bad) to his advantage, to keep it in the public arena. He is not one to give up in defeat. In fact defeat is when one simply stops fighting and it is not his nature.

 

The funny thing about this is those who attack him are the same ones who befriended him for his celebrity status and his fortune. His campaign donations were important to them. They were using him, right? Maybe he was just using them? No matter, one of Trump strategies is to know your enemy. He knows their strengths and their weaknesses and when to apply pressure or withhold it. He knows when to delay just long enough that they mistakenly thing they have the upper hand. By now everybody knows that “love trumps hate” and even I know that you can’t “out trump – Trump”.  But more importantly one cannot afford to forget the “God” factor in this equation.

 

President Donald Trump is a man on a mission to restore America to its rightful greatness once again. His ambitions are not those of a man seeking to increase his self-worth (bank accounts) but to bring the nation back into prosperity. It is to give people hope for a better future for their families. It is to give hope to those desiring to come to America. It is to bring back justice under the Rule of law in accordance with the Constitution of the United States of America.

 

You don’t have to love him, in fact you don’t even have to LIKE him and many choose to hate him, but regardless his goal is for you to prosper at home and in the workplace. More jobs, lower taxes and a stronger sense of self-worth are a portion of what Trump brings to the table. Securing our nation’s borders and preventing lawbreakers entering our nation is paramount to what makes this country great is one of his most pressing issues. Getting other countries to stop using the USA as their own personal ATM is another of his priorities. The biggest hurdle is for American citizens to be proud once again of our nation and what it stands for – Freedom and Liberty in a world of political correctness and fear.

 

For anyone to simply ignore those and vote for higher taxes, more free stuff (nothing is free) and for someone who has trouble balancing their checkbook is preposterous. Politicians promise the moon and back to get your vote. Donald Trump is results oriented. One needs only to look around at the economy and the past two and a half years of the Trump administration’s policies to see results. I have been called many things and I make no apologies for being a Trump apologist. = I am the Real Truckmaster!

My Thoughts on the Secure Fence Act of 2006

7-12-2019

 

My Thoughts on the Secure Fence Act of 2006

(and other immigration issues)

 

The Secure Fence Act of 2006 was passed in 2006 and signed into law by President George W. Bush (R) on October 26, 2006. Its stated purpose was to “establish operational control over the international land and maritime borders of the United States.” Most debate around the law surrounded a provision that required the building of 700 miles of new fencing along the southern border with Mexico. Supporters argued the fence would improve national security and reduce illegal immigration, while opponents argued that the fence would not effectively reduce illegal immigration and could worsen national security. As of 2016, the border with Mexico was lined with 650 miles of partial fencing.

Simple Majority Required. Sep 29, 2006 at 9:30 p.m. ET. Source: senate.gov.

 

On October 26, 2006, U.S. President George W. Bush signed the Secure Fence Act of 2006 (Pub.L. 109–

367) into law stating, “This bill will help protect the American people. This bill will make our borders more secure. It is an important step toward immigration reform.”

 

The bill was introduced on September 13, 2006 by Congressman Peter T. King, Republican of New York.

In the House of Representatives, the Fence Act passed 283–138 on September 14, 2006.

On September 29, 2006 – the Fence Act passed in the Senate 80–19.

 

This summary is from Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Fence_Act_of_2006

 

PROVISIONS

 

Border surveillance

Section 2 of the Secure Fence Act directed the secretary of homeland security to implement a system of surveillance for the land and sea borders of the United States, which included the use of the following: [2]

  • unmanned aerial vehicles
  • ground-based sensors
  • satellites
  • radar coverage
  • cameras

 

The law also directed the secretary to make improvements to physical infrastructure related to border security and the duties of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, such as checkpoints, weather access roads, and vehicle barriers. Under this section, the secretary was also given the authority to take all actions necessary and appropriate to deter and prevent unlawful entry into the United States.[2]

 

Border fence

Section 3 of the Secure Fence Act directed the secretary of homeland security to provide for the construction of a double-layered fence through the following areas, totaling 700 miles in length: [2][4]

(i) extending from 10 miles west of the Tecate, California, port of entry to 10 miles east of the Tecate, California, port of entry;

(ii) extending from 10 miles west of the Calexico, California, port of entry to 5 miles east of the Douglas, Arizona, port of entry;

(iii) extending from 5 miles west of the Columbus, New Mexico, port of entry to 10 miles east of El Paso, Texas;

(iv) extending from 5 miles northwest of the Del Rio, Texas, port of entry to 5 miles southeast of the Eagle Pass, Texas, port of entry; and

(v) extending 15 miles northwest of the Laredo, Texas, port of entry to the Brownsville, Texas, port of entry.[5]

The law also directed the secretary to install surveillance cameras along the stretch of fence between Calexico, California, and Douglas, Arizona.[2]

 

Northern border

Section 4 of the Secure Fence Act directed the secretary of homeland security to conduct a study regarding a security system along the northern border. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the necessity of constructing a system, the feasibility of such a system, and the economic impact it could have along the border.[2]

 

 

 

Customs and Border Patrol authority

Section 5 of the Secure Fence Act directed the secretary of homeland security to evaluate the extent of the authority of Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) to stop vehicles entering the United States illegally and determine whether its authority should be expanded. Under the law, the secretary was also directed to evaluate the use of technology by the CBP to stop vehicles and determine whether such technology should be updated. Finally, the secretary was directed to evaluate the training provided to CBP officers regarding stopping vehicles.[2]

 

Debate

Debate concerning the Secure Fence Act primarily surrounded the construction of 700 miles of border fencing. Questions arose about whether building a fence was ethical, whether it would be effective, and whether it would harm foreign relations with Mexico.

 

Supporters of building the fence argued that the United States, as a sovereign nation, was justified in securing its borders and that doing so would make immigrating to the United States fairer for legal immigrants. They argued that the fence would effectively slow illegal immigration by forcing individuals seeking to cross illegally to attempt to do so in heavily patrolled areas. This extra difficulty would deter more individuals from attempting to cross, proponents contended. In addition, by slowing illegal immigration, supporters argued that the fence would improve national security. It could also improve foreign relations with Mexico as perceived issues with illegal immigration were reduced.[6]

 

Opponents of the fence argued that it would divide communities that exist along the border and possibly cut off some farmers’ access to water. They also argued that the fence would not deter illegal immigration and would instead put border crossers in greater danger by forcing them to cross via treacherous routes. Crossers could also go around, climb over, or dig under the fence, and a fence would not stop illegal entry via the use of falsified documents. Because the fence would not deter illegal immigration, opponents countered that it would also not improve national security and could even incentivize criminals to become more organized. Opponents contended that the fence would worsen foreign relations with Mexico by sending a signal of distrust and an insult to the idea of “good neighbors.”

 

https://ballotpedia.org/Secure_Fence_Act_of_2006

 

From what I’ve been reading this 2006 law was seen as the first step in Comprehensive Immigration Reform and the fence portion is at best a “patch job”. Many of the Senators are still in office and have changed their stance on the fence because President Trump wants it built and called it a “Wall”. More importantly there must be legislative reform of the loopholes that allow unfettered access to our borders by those choosing to enter illegally (such as DACA).

 

Other “state actors” have taken advantage of the lack of support and confusion by members of Congress in failing to support President Trump’s vision of a secure southern border. They have financed, organized and/or executed plans for massive waves of invaders in a grand attempt to overwhelm US law enforcement officials at the border.

 

This has been compounded by a number of individuals AND city, county, state and US Legislative Officials who willfully violate US Immigration laws by aiding the unlawful entry of aliens which is a federal offense prosecutable under federal statutes.

 

Another point of contention has been a Presidential Executive Order to stem the tide of immigrants coming into the United States as seen in Title 8 U.S. Code 1182 – Inadmissible aliens (f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President. “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

 

This brings us to the topic of birthright citizenship as defined by the 14th Amendment which says “[a]ll persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof” are citizens”.

 

So contrary to popular belief or what the media and even member of Congress have led us to believe, in 1898 the Supreme Court of the United States laid out the requirements for birthright U.S. citizenship. The first requirement is that a person’s parents must be in this country legally. The second requirement is that they have a legal residence within the United States at the time of their birth. Any person who DOES NOT MEET those 2 requirements IS NOT a citizen of the United States.

 

Citizenship gained under false pretenses can and should be revoked and that person may be deported and those who assisted someone in gaining citizenship falsely may be fined and imprisoned and have their US citizenship revoked and result in their being deported as well. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

My Take on the Constitution of the United States of America

7-11-2019

 

My Take on the Constitution of the United States of America

 

Recent discussion and mis-information would lead one to believe that the Constitution is no longer relevant, that it and the symbols of our nation represent slavery. What a load of “bunk”! These so called “legal scholars” are politicians or are simply parroting the rhetoric being openly spread over the media.

 

Go to the source, from the horse’s mouth so to speak where you can read the current and official version of the US Constitution https://www.senate.gov/civics/constitution_item/constitution.htm.

 

Read the entire text of the Constitution of the United States which was written in 1787, ratified in 1788 and has been in operation since 1789. The Preamble to the Constitution begins with three very important words – “We the People” – that affirm the government of the United States exists to serve its citizens.

 

Preamble

 

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

 

Contrary to what you may have been told or have heard others say, the government of the United States does not exist for any other purpose, nor does it serve the interests of any other people. The government is not self-serving, nor does it serve the interests of elected or appointed officials.

 

The Constitution was established as the Rule of Law whereby setting the tone and national standards for a more perfect Union to establish Justice while insuring domestic Tranquility, providing for the common defense and promoting the general Welfare and securing the Blessings of Liberty for the Founding Families and their offspring to come.

 

Article I created a Congress, consisting of a Senate and a House of Representatives while insuring the supremacy of the people through their elected officials. The Constitution assigned to Congress the responsibility for organizing the Executive and Judicial Branches of government, raising revenue (taxes), declaring war, and making all laws necessary for executing these powers. That has not changed in over 243 years.

 

Today the Congress has become inflated with complex rules, committees and caucuses that have become so politically charged that the making of laws have ground to a virtual halt. The holders of political power in Congress have become more interested in flexing their political muscles that they interfere with or obstruct the Executive branch and are unable to legislate effectively or efficiently.

 

The Constitution provides for a Presidential veto on certain legislative acts, but Congress has the authority to override presidential vetoes by two-thirds majorities in both houses (House and Senate). The Senate provides for advise and consent on key executive and judicial appointments and on approval for ratification of treaties.

 

This separation and balance of governmental powers is designed to safeguard the interests of majority rule and minority rights, of liberty and equality, and of the federal and state governments. The Constitution is more a concise statement of national principles than a detailed plan of governmental operation. The Constitution has evolved over time to meet the changing needs of a modern society and has been amended 27 times, most recently in 1992. The first ten amendments constitute the Bill of Rights.

 

Annotated Constitutions

 

The Constitution of the United States of America: Analysis and Interpretation (popularly known as the Constitution Annotated) contains legal analysis and interpretation of the United States Constitution, based primarily on Supreme Court case law.

 

The Constitution of the United States of America, S.PUB.103-21 (1994) (pdf), prepared by the Office of the Secretary of the Senate with the assistance of Johnny H. Killian of the Library of Congress in 1994, provided the original text of each clause of the Constitution with an accompanying explanation of its meaning and how that meaning changed over time.

 

One last note on the Constitution, during the initial session of the 1st Congress Representatives were to be chosen every 2 years with terms of 4 years and the Senate for terms of 6 years. Senators were divided into three classes.

Class 1 = terms expired in 2 years,

Class 2 = terms expired in 4 years, and

Class 3 = terms expired in 6 years.

This was by design to insure that it would take three legislative elections to fully change all Representatives and Senators.

 

The pressing issues of national safety and security is all important in today’s society so isn’t it time for Congress to get back into the business of legislating for the American people?  – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Concerning A World Turned Upside Down

7-6-2019

 

Concerning A World Turned Upside Down

 

Jesus when he was tempted used a very important phrase to rebuke the devil, he would say, “It is written” and quoted from the scripture. Jesus was never wrong in doing so, even as he was the “Living Word” and the Son of the living God.

 

Today in 2019 it is equally important in good times as well as bad times rather to lean on our own understanding we too should follow the example Jesus gave and say “It is written” and quote the Word of God over the situation in our lives.

 

We know we are living in the last days because the events of the book of Revelation are happening before our very eyes.

 

2 Timothy 3:1 – 3:5 KJV———–

1… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2… For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3… Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4… Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5… Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

 

The political climate of the United States is a testament to the fact that when Christians humble themselves before God and pray, God sends forth the answer according to HIS plan and HIS will. In our case God’s plan is not man’s plan because God’s ways are higher than man’s ways.

 

There are many self-righteous people and those who call themselves Christians who have not asked God nor sought his advice in our politics because they are too busy trying to guess what and if God is doing.

 

Looking back over the past 3 years the world of American politics has been knocked down time and time again. It is no longer politics as usual as the deep state, or as President Trump so rightfully called it “the swamp” is falling apart faster than a parachutist without a chute. But believe it or not God has a plan for America and did not choose a “religious leader” type in order to show himself.

 

Anyone familiar with the bible can see that God uses a bit of humor in dealing with his creation – Man. God made a statement in choosing POTUS #45. Keep in mind God can and does everything for a purpose and God choose Isaiah 45 to illustrate that purpose.

 

Now before you go off and scream “Trump’s a lying, low down dirty dealing, filthy rich billionaire playboy who is in love with himself” or some such rantings let me break it to you as gently as I can, Trump is a sinner. Just like you and I. Trump isn’t perfect (Jesus is the only one who was), but Trump is perfect for the job that God has for him at this place and time.

 

We acknowledge that the world has been turned upside down, so what better way to address that topsy-turvy and self-righteous attitude of American politics than to bring a “junkyard dog” scrapper into the White House. God could have brought a Billy Graham type Christian to become the spiritual leader in Washington, but choose instead to bring someone who would wield a sword to take down the spirit of Political Correctness that has taken over this nation and God choose to do it his way (as is his custom).

 

What you and I see happening today is the age old battle of evil pitting itself against good (God). If you have read the end of the book (Revelation) you will find that God won that battle a long time ago on Calvary when Jesus was crucified, died and raised from the dead for the sins of the world (yours and mine), yet the devil wages war until God says enough is enough.

 

It’s not about whether you or I like Donald J. Trump as a real estate developer or as President of the United States. It is God’s opinion that matters. Is Trump doing what God intended? Are the results worthy of God’s approval? Are those results helping to bring others to the salvation knowledge of Jesus Christ? One does not have to wonder, but look at what’s happening across our nation and in the world.

 

It’s not about Trump, but all about Jesus Christ and until God is satisfied this world is in for a roller-coaster ride of epic proportions. In order to have a front row seat one must come to know the master. The bible tells us that if you believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and confess your sins you will be saved.

 

Not to be an alarmist but the chaos happening throughout the world is nothing compared to an eternity without God. God is good and without God there can be no good. God is light and when taken from HIS light, there is eternal darkness.

 

Do you know Jesus? It’s not too late……I am the Real Truckmaster!

What Boils Your Blood?

IMG_5761

7-3-2019

 

What Boils Your Blood?

 

Do you consider yourself to be a level headed born and bred American? Do you have a strong sense of right and wrong? Are there things that are just not done that way? What does it take to get you fighting mad? What’s important to you – God; Family; Country; Honor; Respect; or fair play?

 

As a retired military man I can tell you there are usually 3 ways to do just about anything.

  1. There’s the right way, according to procedure, regulation or protocol.
  2. There’s the wrong way, not using or adhering to rule #1.
  3. Then there’s yet another way that just doesn’t work either – Your way.

 

As a supervisor, platoon sergeant or project manager there is nothing more frustrating than having someone trying to wing it and everything just falls apart.

 

It’s no different in the private sector. The company has a set way of operating and it is usually not a good idea to ignore them. You can do things the company way and discover a more efficient or productive way to get the job done to save time, money or man hours. But you don’t just get to change things on your own or you’ll soon find yourself on the outside looking in.

 

There seems to be quite a different approach when it comes to politics. It’s not as much as making things better, safer or efficient. It’s not even about saving money, after all it’s not like it’s their money now is it? Politics seems to be about creating regulations that make it harder for the working class to get things done and make a profit as much as it is about lining ones pockets or padding ones bank account.

 

There are 435 members of the US House of Representatives and 100 members of the US Senate. Granted we have changed out a number of those members during the recent election cycle, but one has only to ask how does a member of Congress become a millionaire or billionaire on a salary of roughly $174,000 per year over a period of 8 years in office?

 

It is even more interesting to discover how many days per year they are actually in the Chambers of Congress, doing what they were sent there to do? Did you know that originally Members of Congress were paid a per diem rate instead of a salary? If they didn’t work, they didn’t get paid. Maybe Congress should go back to per diem?

 

There are a number of issues that Congress should be dealing with today, like getting everybody working and off of public assistance; making it cost effective for folks crossing over the border illegally; national security; cybersecurity; tariffs and a host of other problems like souring crime across the nation; homelessness and lawlessness running amuck.

 

There are rogue gangs and entities making it their job to enforce their values on American citizens in various cities and doing so with impunity. The basic Rule of Law prohibits killing, robbing, assaulting and causing chaos (for starters). US Law Enforcement agencies are mandated to enforce the laws and are being unlawfully ordered to stand down or told not to cooperate with federal agencies and this is wrong. We see reporters falsely reporting manufactured news, while others become the news because they are reporting what is happening.

 

There are organized groups, organizations and possibly foreign nations financing and enabling the assault on our southern border using every means at their disposal while attacking the very sovereignty of our nation.

 

Our nation’s public schools are a mess leaving our students not even able to function when they reach adulthood. Institutions of higher learning are nothing more than brainwashing facilities where degrees are meaningless and graduates encounter the heavy burden of repayment, yet are unable to find employment in their chosen fields of study.

 

That being said what are members of Congress really concerned with? What do they put all their energy into? What is their focus? – Stopping Trump!

 

Oh come on, really?

 

The time is rapidly approaching where men and women will stand firm against evil, but it cannot be done on their own, without Almighty God. He alone is the answer.

 

So back to my original question, what makes you fighting mad? What will it take before you stop standing in the shadows and move forward, arm-in-arm as one entity standing tall for Freedom, Democracy and for the very soul of America? – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Veterans are Important to America

 

They are the brightest and the best America has to offer. In their youth they served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America. They pledged their honor and their lives for the cause of Freedom. They took “The Oath” to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies both foreign and domestic……..so help us God! They’ve seen the best and the worst of humanity. They made a difference without any expectation of praise or recognition. They hung up their uniform, ready should the call “Come to Arms” sound once again. They are America’s Veterans of the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Marines and the Air Force.

 

In their youth they walked the walk and talked the talk. They were the original “Bad Boys” when circumstances called for being bad. They were then and are now “Brothers” sharing memories of a distant land where every turn yielded danger and death. They trained their replacements with a determination that nobody would be left behind. They trained for war.

 

Look around and you’ll see them in the grocery store, the hospital or medical clinic, stock brokers and insurance, in real estate or in the post office. They don’t look any different than you or I but when danger strikes they run toward it, not away. They’ve been there before and know exactly what needs to be done. They have the training and experience and are not afraid to use them. One cannot relate unless you’ve been there. Coming home after war is just not the same. Outwardly they may not look any different but deep inside something has happened that cannot adequately be described.

 

I’m talking about America’s veterans. These are not the video game snipers who know all the cheats to get to the next level. They are not the video race car drivers who always find a way to win and there is no comparison.

 

America is on the verge of another civil war where a divided nation stands for honor, respect and decency or for civil unrest and chaos.

 

The line in the sand is a clear one, yet very few seem to see it. Patriots are those who are prepared and ready and know exactly what to do when the going gets tough. They have a clear advantage over those who confuse socialism with social media where fear, intimidation and violence are simply tools of the trade, a means to an end.

 

American patriots are God fearing, bible believing, gun toting family men and women who when the time comes will rise up and face the evil menace to society. Do not be quick to judge a man or woman by what you see, because it’s what you don’t see and don’t know that will become known as we ask Almighty God for guidance, strength and victory. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
