I am sure you are all aware of the bracelets, t-shirts, bumper stickers, etc. imprinted with that wonderful slogan, “What Would Jesus Do?” You see them everywhere. They are meant to make you ask yourself if you are doing the “right” thing, if you are doing what is good for all of mankind.
This afternoon, I was on my way home from an appointment, and the car in front of me at a red light had one of those WWJD bumper stickers. Right next to the “WWJD” sticker was a faded “OBAMA/BIDEN 2008″ sticker. That set my mind to wondering what Jesus would do about our present economic and political situation. I thought to myself, “Would Jesus march through the streets, beseeching people to wake up and demand their rights as citizens of the greatest nation on Earth? Would he storm the Temple (Congress) and vociferously berate those who dared desicrate that marvelous bastion of Freedom?”
It wasn’t a huge leap to take that thoughtt to the next level… a level more in tune to politics in general. What would Thomas Jefferson do? For that matter, what would ANY of our founding Fathers have done? Would they have been content with just sitting back and watching everything they worked so hard for, everything they risked their very lives for, be slowly torn apart and feasted on by the preditors who presently occupy our nation’s capitol? My guess is a resounding NO! NEVER! With modern technology at their disposal, they would have banded together and sent the despotic greedheads in DC packing!
That, dear friends, is what Jefferson would have done. That is what WE should do. We need to get up off the couch and FIGHT! Fight for our freedoms. Fight for our rights. Fight for the rights our children may not get the chance to enjoy if we allow Obama and his minions to continue their attempts to shred our precious Constitution and trample all over what so many have fought and died for… the American Dream! FIGHT… FIGHT… FIGHT! It is, I believe, what Jefferson would do!
