We are quickly approaching the 150 anniversary of the Gettysburg
address. We should stop and take a minute to reread it.
I hope you all noticed that our "illustrious" president decided not to
attend the ceremonies. I suspect he could not bring himself to attend
any thing that may honor what is stated in the last paragraph.
"- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain
-- that this nation, under GOD, shall have a new birth of freedom
-- and that government OF the people, BY the people, for the people,
shall not perish from the earth."
This is not what the social democrats what to promote. If they believe
that they would not be able to block all legislation to correct the
problems created when they unilaterally forced obamacare down our throats
Note My spell checker wants to replace obamacare with macabre, Even my
dumb computer know what is right
"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this
continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the
proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or
any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on
a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of
that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives
that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we
should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate --
we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who
struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or
detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here,
but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living,
rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who
fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be
here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these
honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they
gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve
that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under
God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the
people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
