    But One Life

    Today is no different to me - I'm not superstitious. But this day was the day when Nathan Hale was born - you remember him, don't you? (Hint: I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country).
    Nathan Hale (June 6, 1755 - September 22, 1776) was a captain in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. Hale was most famous for his brave but failed attempt at espionage. Widely considered America's first spy; he volunteered for an intelligence-gathering mission and was caught and executed. Hale has long been considered an American hero and in 1985 he was officially designated the State Hero of Connecticut. A large statue of Hale is located outside the headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency.
    I dare say that more people know the names of television personalities more than they know the beginning sentence of the US Constitution - or even the first several words - We The People of the United States. . .

    There has been a continuing effort to change our Constitution - to "We The World" or something like that. To diminish what this country was build upon. Initially the agenda of Liberal Democrats some Republicans are loosing their site of what the Republican party stood for.

    Never have I seen the essence of liberalism and socialism as I have now. From allowing the invasion from another country into ours, to the government controlling peoples life more and more, to the uncontrolled social handouts given to other countries - on the backs of hard working Americans. Continual abandonment of the very principles of our Constitution as well as what little moral social fabric we have remaining - being eroded away from both sides.

    Perhaps you noticed the image on the right side for the Constitution Party. I'm still checking them out, but if you're a conservative Democrat, conservative Republican, or a conservative Independent we might now have a choice other than the worn out two parties that now control us and our money.

    Our Constitution stood for less government, not more. It stood for protecting our country, not opening it to invasion.

    If I do find they stand for what I believe, and knowing the party I use to vote for has abandoned those beliefs, I will vote that direction. I've heard some argue that it might cost a Republican the election. My response? So what - they have abandoned all Conservatives for the most part.

    This is how the Republican party started - as a third party It was started in 1854 by a coalition of former Whigs - Northern Democrats and Free-Soilers that opposed the expansion of slavery. Oh my, how some of the GOP have changed.

    Time for a new Revolution.
