NC = North of Cowardice.

Today the buzz in the news has me thinking. It has me thinking about what it means to be an American. You see I look at being a citizen of the U.S. as a solemn responsibility. There are many things that go on in this country that I do not agree with, but they are allowed in this country. You see the basic fundamental issue we have is the perception of freedom that we all have. You see freedom is something we all have. We are free to do what ever we want. While some would argue this is implied anarchy, but we to look at the other aspect of freedom. You see we are free to do what ever the hell we want. The other part of that is that we also need to understand the personal responsibility of our actions. Every choice we make has consequences, and we are free to face those consequences through our own choices.

It is through that deeper understanding of what freedom is that we can understand how awesome our country is. You see America does not allot us freedom, that we already have, it allows us to enjoy those basic freedoms without overbearing consequence. The true evil of the awareness of your personal freedom and thinking it is related to the freedoms of others. Taking freedom from another does not protect your freedoms, rather it sets the precedence for others to attempt to take yours. That is the crime that is actually deeper than any other. You see your choice comes with responsibility and most people are afraid of that. So to make themselves feel better at night they offer their choice to others. People like to be told what to do, because they shake that responsibility. When you take those choices from another you practice tyranny, and when you willfully give it to another you practice cowardice.

There is a poem I read once about people coming for people, and the man who wrote it did nothing. Then when they came for him there was no one left to do or say anything on his behalf. He made the choice. He chose to give his power to someone else. In that he was chained by consequence. Inaction is still doing something no matter how you look at it. So you stand by idle you make a choice, and you will be held accountable for that choice. There is always a reaping, and you reap what you sow. So the question is what choices will you make with your own life? Will you suffer tyranny? Will you embrace cowardice? Or maybe you will sack the fuck up and do what is right?

Let me make this clear as I can for those people that did not pay attention in school, America is about embracing personal freedom. This is what makes us outstanding. In order to enjoy your freedom you need protect and be responsible for the freedoms of the group. It is your responsibility, your duty, and in the end it is extremely self serving. You protect the freedoms of others and you ensure your own. You also ensure that their is one strong united voice daring the world to take your freedom. It says clearly that you try and take it and I will remind you that fist can also be a verb.

In that I will let you all know I am not gay. I actually do not understand why women would want to be with a guy, so I could never see myself with another guy. I actually find the thought or concept completely revolting, but who the fuck are we to enforce that on anyone else? I do not agree with mass complex super mall churches selling the bible with the currency being choice and thought. There are a lot of things that I do not agree with, but that is the price of freedom. So for me to be free others have to be free as well. So tell me why one guy marrying another guy impedes on your freedom? Tell me how telling children they can't pray on their own time because they are in school inhibits your freedom to not do the same damn thing? These things got hand in hand you morons. You do not gain or protect your freedom by taking any freedom from anybody. That is tyranny you assholes. That is really unAmerican. Wake the fuck up North Carolina.

So people the solution is simple, stop trying to take choice from other people. It does not protect your freedom at all. All it does it make it easier for people telling you it is right to do so, to take away your freedom. It takes away your freedom bit by bit and you find other people thinking for you because it is lazy, and easy to be a coward.


  1. "We are all equal under the Constitution"??? I think not..... If we were,gay marriage would NOT be an issue!

  2. well said and I also agree with Pat.

  3. The thing is we are all equal under the Constitution, we just allow other people to impede on that freedom. Think about this the next time you vote. Listen to what they are saying, congressmen, senators, or presidents, it doesn't matter. Are they offering to protect or regain your freedoms, or are they buying your vote by talking about what they are looking to take away from others to make things "better" for you.

  4. Pat - We ARE all EQUAL under the Constitution. Please show me WHERE in the Constitution that it outlaws gay marriage. The "Constitution" itself does NOT, it does quite the opposite. It is actually the laws of individual states that make gay marriage illegal OR LEGAL in some cases. Further, I would argue that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution FOR the United States makes all those laws UNconstitutional. For that amendment says in section one:
    Section 1. ..."No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

    The 14th Amendment was used in the Supreme Court case of Loving v. Virginia (1967) to allow Interracial Marriage. Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote: "The freedom to marry has long been recognized as one of the vital personal rights essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men"...

    If "traveling" in a vehicle is a "liberty", I would argue that marriage is ALSO a liberty under these two items alone.

    Jesse - We are NOT free to do as we want in this country. We have numerous laws that prevent us from doing many things. Sure we can do whatever we want, but we would go to jail more many of them. So, under your conclusion, even Russians, Iraqis or even Iranians are free to do as they want. They will be arrested, just as we would be here, but they ARE FREE to do as they want too.

    We do not as a country need to "dare the world" to come take our freedoms. Our own government "under public opinion" does a good enough job of taking them from us without help from the outside world.

    FYI - kids ARE allowed to pray in school if they want to. The public SCHOOL can NOT mandate prayer. This is a common misunderstanding. The Supreme Court has never ruled that students can NOT pray, but instead ruled that schools (Government) can not be involved in telling students when, where, what and who to pray to.
