Liberty might be a little like my hand-fired coal stove. If you don't tend it, it goes out. I got lazy last night and didn't tend the stove. I knew my backup ng heater would come on, so I let it go. If I had no backup heat, I would have been motivated to keep the fire going. (backup just kicked on).
The stove retains heat, and I just pulled the dump grate, put the ashes in a spackle bucket. I noticed one last ember in the firebox. If I had no matches or way to make fire, I possibly could have rescued the fire at the last minute.
It seems to me the fire of liberty is being put out, maybe from neglect. I hope it can be rekindled before it's too late.
I watched another show last night about post-war Germany. Nazi Guerillas I think it was. The allies had to occupy Germany and there were still a lot of determined Nazis around. As you know, when the Nazis occupied France, the resistance might snipe a German soldier or officer. The Nazis would kill 100 or 200 civilians as reprisals.
We rounded up Nazi snipers like that ourselves, and promptly executed them by firing squad. The Brits used guillotines. The Russians were more brutal than that.
Even as late as 1947 they were causing bombings and killings. But we initiated The Marshall Plan and gave billions of dollars to rebuild Germany, more in an attempt to democratize the region and keep the commies out than from humanitarianism.
Now I feel a lot like the Frenchman in the picture. Our country is being invaded, there's enemies of the constitution laced through our government. Not by a totalitarian regime with an unstoppable war machine; but subtly, slowly and steadily. They're not using 88's and a Luftwaffe. They're flooding the country with illegals, handing power over to the UN, de-industrializing the continent.
The liberals here all seem to live out in the country; where they can preach in safety without affect. I'd like to offer a tour of my local area, as the sanctuary cities continue to expand and demolish our American culture, not with bombs, but with the steady eradication of American culture, morality, and ideals.
