Liberty Gone Again

Some of you may remember when the great comedian, David Copperfield, made the Statue of Liberty disappear in front of our eyes. The statue literally vanished right before our eyes! Thank heavens, that was only an illusion. A horrid thought to be sure. Our Statue of Liberty belongs to the world for the world sees the statue as a symbol of freedom.

We Americans are observing right now is also the disappearance of liberty. This time the removal is more severe and painful for all of us to watch. We are now witnessing a political party, the Democrats, destroying nearly every constitutional right we Americans currently enjoy.

The Democratic party has decided to take away all the legal rights of our very own POTUS, Donald Trump. If you think this is ok because you do not like our President, perhaps it is time for you to re-evaluate your ideas. Take a step and decide if this is the kind of country you want to live in. If this is the kind of justice you desire, I am sure many of the Arabic countries can accommodate you. I am sure many Americans are willing to chip in for your plane ticket.

I did not like President Obama personally; however, I supported him because that is what the Bible tells me and all of us to do. God picks our presidents, and if you read the book of Romans, you will see the direction on how to treat our leaders. It is almost always a certainty that most of us at one time or another, will have a boss or leader we do not like, but we should still support them because it is the right thing to do.

Look at the world around us right now. It seems as if we are all living in a world of chaos. Many countries have riots going on in their streets, with looting, burning of private and public properties, and suffering a generalized decay of all public decency. Do we as Americans want that.

How many of you have had a legal difficulty sometime in your past? How many of you have not had the finances to cover it? How would you like it if all your rights were taken away as is happening to our President right now? How would you like to be prosecuted because someone heard someone else talking to yet another person who heard someone else say you committed a crime? Worse yet, you are allowed no representation or even know who the person was who said this about you.

How would you like it when you are offered a plea bargain? Here is the deal, sir, or ma’am, being you stole that apple inadvertently, you can plead guilty and get 30 days in jail, or we can go to court. We are going to give the maximum sentence of 100 years if you are found guilty. You know you are innocent but cannot take that chance. Thirty days or 100 years. I realize this example is a little outrageous, but that is essentially how radical some plea deals are.

How many of you Democrats would want your rights wholly taken away and be trampled upon and not be allowed to defend yourself? It doesn’t sound right to me! Sound ok to you? Stand up for your President, or someday the same will be happening to you.

God bless America and give God thanks for the liberty you enjoy today in our beloved country. Rick Redalen, MD, Maverick Doctor.
