Fighting for My Freedoms

I've just been thinking, which as of yet is still my "right". In listening to the presidential debates and hearing the two different plans on health care, I am reminded of a similar scenario where two plans were presented.

One plan was Heavenly Fathers plan to allow all of his children to go down to earth and receive a body and have their own agency to choose what they will do. The other plan was Satan's plan. He wanted all of Heavenly Fathers children to return to Him also, but instead of allowing us to make our own choices satan's plan was to FORCE everyone to do what was right and therefore all would return. Thankfully, satan's plan was rejected, and we all came to earth with our own agency and opportunities to choose and find our way back to God.

In the debates one plan (McCain's) although not perfect does open state lines for more CHOICES. Where the other plan (Obama's) will FORCE everyone to have health insurance, because if you don't he will fine you. Now unless i'm mistaken the main reason people choose to not have insurance is because they can't afford it. So if they can't afford insurance they certainly can't afford another fine. I know their plans are more complicated than that but that's the basics.

Now, too often we think of fighting for freedom as done by the soldiers. However, if we as American's don't step up and fight for our own freedoms in this election we may lose them to Obama who will take them for our own best interest. Because he thinks he knows what's best for all of us. As for me I believe that I know what's best for me and my family, not the government. And what's best for me is Patriotism as defined as loving ones country, not as obama says in how many taxes you pay.

I can't believe that a man who would turn his back on the American flag, refuses to wear the flag on his lapel because he might offend someone, among many other things has made it this far in an American presidential election.

Well, I am someone and I am offended. I am an American and although it's not perfect, am proud of my country. I'm thankful for the freedoms that I have and am grateful to all those who fought to give me these rights. The American Flag represents those freedoms and those men and women who fought to give us a country. It represents working together to help each other.

Fight for your Freedoms. Don't give them away. Although I don't agree with everything McCain talks about at least I know that McCain loves America. Has fought for it, and respects the flag.

Well, that's just some of my thoughts. If you agree GREAT. If not, well, that ok, too. aren't you glad we still have the right to disagree. We can even agree to disagree. HAVE A GREAT DAY.
