Face Books owner, Mark Zuckerberg , publicly backs Hillary Clinton and blocks access to pages like mine now. I can’t speak as to reasons for other patriotic, yet opposed to his political views, pages denied, only my own.
First is a claim to produce legal proof of my actual identity to use my account, I complied. Less than twenty-four hours after first sign in after lengthy delay removed again. No violation ever of any posted rules, only opposing views of his candidate of choice, seems unfair.
I then submitted my state driving license, my voter ID card, and most importantly my United States Military ID. Proof I served to protect one of the very rights he denies, my freedom of speech. If not for those of us risking all, would a Face Book exist? Other lands silence the people’s voice, opposite views, the freedom to openly assemble, speak out loud, not America.
What reliable media we still have show I am not alone. Thanks to the soon to be given away control of the internet, Zuckerberg is not the only culprit, but that is another battle to be won at a latter time. He’s wealthy beyond most of our Republic’s citizen’s dreams these trying days, a formidable foe indeed. Legions of lawyers, layers of protection, legal mumbo jumbo designed to scare away the average man. They insure very few could afford the cost to fight back, never a chance for us poor to win.
Their mistake is though empty as my pockets are, my souls not for sale, nor my desire for freedoms died for to be stronger than any USA foe. As a young teen I enlisted during the Viet Nam Era, not drafted, deferred, or dodging my nation’s need. I am a soul surviving heir, the last of my line, a legitimate out. Before you go there, perfectible sane, just patriotic. A sense of duty, an honor, a risk.
Same here, only death’s off the table, and the enemy is just as cunning in this battle for freedom. Worse yet, he’s on our soil, in the home of the brave. Infiltrators, not in tunnels or trees as in Nam so many faced, in control of what American’s can see or say today. Insidious as any foe of freedom, well funded, backed by other’s of like mind. Their goal the same, to end the American Way.
If we could talk to warriors long ago, or sadly dieing today, what would they say? How would they view this America of today? Veterans dieing waiting for the VA to care, twenty-two suicides reportedly each and every day, homeless, jobless, forgotten. Fired for knowing what to do, by those with their own idealistic view, ignored by the majority of you. Shame to go around, blame to all ignoring their needless strife, if their sacrifices not valued by all. If they still give all, gave all, and you allowed those freedoms to be removed, what’s next for America?
Where will you go? The American Way is every other nations suffering citizenry’s dream! Our Republic is unique, envied, once fully respected by all. It was the care of America, never the fear, that our people united against tyranny and won. Freedom for all, not a chosen few, an unimaginable feat, the few defeated the many. The powers that be lost! A ragtag group defeated an empire! We won, they lost, the world took notice.
We took that same spirit to their lands, freed them, still do, until now without doubt they could count on America for salvation. What changed? When? Why now the needed worry that all changed? The disrespect? The unchallenged aggressors? Not the people? I wonder? I despair. I cry. Who took over our nation while I was busy working, raising my young, distracted from my duty? To serve and protect an oath, taken before God, sworn to by me not only willingly, eagerly, for eternity. Like a Rip Van Winkle asleep?
Excuses are like farts, all different, all stink. There’s a smell in the air today, and on air/cable/web, are you making them to? Views Casters replace the once honorable Newsmen of our past. Truth defeats the enemy, division insures a win, lies now common place with recorded proof. Not much if any help there. So what do we do? No one’s asking you to go to war, only to either defend or respect those freedoms we did, and sadly still do. You have the greatest power of all, your vote, it’s unbeatable if used.
The denial of rights by Zuckerberg, and his Face Book, help them to control information. What you see, is what you get in your head at election times, that buys them the vote. When your taught red is green, up is down, you vote their way. Kept poor prevents the ability to learn, to reason, to know fact from their fiction. It works. Look around you, told we’re doing great, do you see it? Stir up one against another and they insure unity is but a myth. Your controllable, predictable, defeat able. United as one, their greatest fear.
I am one, with you in mind united, so I’ll battle on for the future generations to come. Unafraid to do battle once again, just a bit older than the teen who swore that oath. I will get my page back, keep posting everywhere else, for those freedoms slipping away. They’ll take them down, remove them from your sight. Their afraid of the light turning onto those in the shadows, those in the background controlling the power’s that be today, worried you may join up with me. Worse for them still the fact that some will Re-Tweet, Share, Post this or support in some way like getting out the vote. I’m a tired old Vet who hasn’t, and won’t quit yet to fight for our freedoms to remain intact.
