Thank you for visiting. My thoughts & Feelings are my Own.

Here I will share my feelings about America and her Future.

Let it be known to all the World, I love all Humankind, however the poor actions of the few that take away the Freedom's of the many wear on my soul. I don't hate them I feel sad for their foolishness before God and humankind.

Those leaders who seek to 'Keep their Oaths of office' and those who seek only self glory, power, tyranny and the destruction of America as it was founded, hoping to turn it into a Dictatorship, Marxist or other state of Tyranny.

For a long while I was unsure of putting a blog together with my thoughts on this, however Truth must be shared, if not to Awake American's to their dangerous situation then to record the folly of the ways of the wicked who do exist in the leadership of our Nation, States, Counties, Towns. Sad that I must add this page.

"We often search for things in life, yet seldom do we find.

Those things in life that really matter, until we make the time." S.T.Huls

God Bless the Republic of America!

We have Got To Stand Up!!

Obama Painting Heats Controversy: Free Speech, Offensive or Both? | TheBlaze.com

Painting of Obama Burning Constitution Sparks Controversy: Free Speech, Offensive or Both?

Obama Painting Heats Controversy: Free Speech, Offensive or Both?
Painting is an art form that often allows the artist to present an opinion. The latest work by artist Jon McNaughton does just that, portraying President Barack Obama burning the constitution in “One Nation Under Socialism” which has drawn its far share of detractors. McNaughton describes the new painting on his Facebook page:
“’I pledge allegiance to the United States of America,
And not to an ideology, which can never stand,
One nation under socialism, divisive,
With no liberty or justice for anyone.’
This November, you will make a choice. Will you choose One Nation Under Socialism?”
The painting has already drawn over 700 shares and over 1,200 comments.
“I think what you are doing is bold and should be seen/heard by all Americans!!!” writes commenter Tamara Thomas. “Dead-on! A picture that says what our mainstream media will not,” says Vincent Brusio.
But not every commenter was a fan.
“I would love to see a painting like this of Romney and his Bain Capital Wall Street cronies laughing and stuffing money in their mouths as they rip off all the gullible right-wing dupes who think SOCIALISM for the rich fat cats who looted our country (not to mention the world economy is perfectly fine,” writes John Wages. “Grow up,” Billy Bey says simply.
New York Magazine Art Critic Jerry Saltz told CBSDC that the painting contained “bad academic derivative realism,” calling it “typical propaganda art, drop-dead obvious in message” and “visually dead as a doornail.”
“It panders and preaches to the converted and tells them what they already believe,” Saltz told CBSDC. “It has no graphic power of its own. It simply attempts to crawl into the body of that sort of illustration.”
McNaughton told CBSDC that he hopes his painting will get the “public talking about what the painting represents. Is Obama pushing a Socialist agenda on the American people?”
McNaughton further explained his painting in a video on Youtube:
McNaughton has previously painted the president stomping on the Constitution and a similar pledge painting illustrating one nation under God.
What do you think of McNaughton’s painting? Free speech at its best (and no different than previous attacks from the other side) or offensive?

 Below is from Jon's official site worth a visit, I love the many styles of Art Jon does, and He like others in history have used their talents to share their feelings about what is happening at their times. Like Norman Rockwell, Jon McNaughton is expressing the happenings of his Nation and life, whether people agree or not it is all based in reality.

This November, you will make a choice.  Will you choose One Nation Under Socialism?

McNaughton’s Answers to Questions Regarding This Painting:

Why the title “One Nation Under Socialism?”
Our federal government has been moving in the direction of socialism for over one hundred years.  Many presidents and politicians have compromised the Constitution as we have given away our freedoms under the guise of entitlements and government intervention.  When the people are willing to sacrifice the next generation for their current lifestyles and allow the federal government to have all the power for an illusory mess of pottage—you have chosen One Nation Under Socialism.

What do you mean by an ideology, which can never stand?
I will not support an ideology, which will lead to the destruction of America.  In the history of the world, never has there been a recorded example where Socialism has led to the betterment of the human condition or improved the liberty of the people.  I know there are varying degrees and definitions of “socialism.”  Even the European model of Democratic Socialism has proven to be a dismal failure.  Do you want to see our country become like Greece, Italy, Portugal, or even Great Britain? 

What do you mean by “divisive, with no liberty or justice for anyone?”
Socialism uses the illusion of offering fairness and justice for everyone by redistributing the wealth of the nation; picking and choosing winners and losers.  This administration has taken over our health care system, given bailouts to the automotive industry, banking industry and energy industry.  They support the “Occupy Wall Street” movement of increased taxing of the rich to pay for the welfare of the “less rich.”  The Constitution never guaranteed equal things—only equal rights and justice.  In America we should be FREE TO SUCCEED and FREE TO FAIL! 

At this very moment our Constitution is literally going up in flames.  What will you do to preserve the Constitution and save America?
