That movie always makes me cry. I’m at the point when the President – a guy who, although a movie star, really ACTS like a President – is giving the speech that precedes the attack. He talks about how humanity will NOT go quietly, will NOT lie down and die. Very different from today’s “leaders”, who expect us to be sheep, lining up for shearing (or worse!).
I really don’t believe that The Left know just how many of us are out there. The old and tired, the young and untested, the veterans, the never-in-combat ones, even those who – technically – are not Americans – all of us who are determined not to give up our freedom without a hell of a fight.
And, likely, not even then.
They just cannot imagine it. Imagine someone willing to kill/die rather than live like a slave. Rather than give up the essence of what citizenship means. To be willing to die on their feet, rather than live on their knees.
That’s what we are.
Free men and women. Descended from others who risked it all to possess that freedom.
God help them if they continue to stand in our way.
