As an Individual
This Cat GETS IT
I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.
This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government.
Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL.
That statement about was NOT made by Uncle Milton. Only wish Uncle Milton had the opportunity to make a statement like that one. No, that was Tim Thomas, goalie for the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins, after el presidentio invited the Bruin hockey team to the white house.
A LOT to Like
There is a lot to like in that statement. Go back and read it again. The statement is pretty clear that his decision is not about politics, it is about a decision that he had to make as an individual.
The grubmint is threatening our rights.
The grubmint is threatening our liberties.
The grubmint is threatening our property.
I don’t like it. I am just one man, an individual, and I do not like what you are doing there dude in the white house, so I choose NOT to play along with you. I choose to avoid you. I choose, based on principle, to assert my freedom of association.
As just one individual, Old Uncle Milton admires what this one man did, and hope one day to shake the hand of this individual. Because if this country is ever to regain its shining city status, it will be from millions upon millions of individuals, basing their decisions on principle, and having the intestinal fortitude to stand behind their decision
God bless you Tim Thomas! God bless you..
