How Foolishishly PC And Apathetic America Has Become !

The heroes of the Alamo heroically fighting the Mexican army to the
death. These Americans had convictions that they were willing to
die for.
The current day American, lacking any beliefs or convictions. They
lust for material wealth and self worship. They are sheeps who are
afraid to lead, for fear of offending the sensitives or not being In
the norm (so-called In crowd).

During this week back in 1836, the Alamo fell. For more than 13
days, 186 brave and determined patriots withstood Santa Anna's
seasoned army of over 4,000 troops. To a man, the defenders of
that mission fort knew they would never leave those ramparts
alive. They had several opportunities to leave and live. Yet,
they chose to fight and die. How foolish they must look to this
generation of spoiled Americans.

It is difficult to recall that stouthearted men such as Davy
Crockett (a nationally known frontiersman and former
Congressman), Will Travis (only 23 years old with a little
baby at home), and Jim Bowie (a wealthy landowner with
properties on both sides of the Rio Grande) really
existed. These were real men with real dreams and real
desires. Real blood flowed through their veins. They loved
their families and enjoyed life as much as any of us. There
was something different about them, however. They
possessed a commitment to liberty that transcended
personal safety and comfort.

Liberty is an easy word to say, but it is a hard word to live
up to. Freedom has little to do with financial gain or personal
pleasure. Accompanying Freedom is her constant and
unattractive companion, Responsibility. Neither is she an
only child. Patriotism and Morality are her sisters. They
are inseparable; destroy one and all will die.

Early in the siege, Travis wrote these words to the people
of Texas: "Fellow Citizens & Compatriots: I am besieged by
a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna. . . . The
enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise the
garrison are to be put to the sword . . . I have answered the
demand with a cannon shot & our flag still waves proudly
from the walls. I shall never surrender or retreat. . . . VICTORY
OR DEATH! P.S. The Lord is on our side. . . ."

As you read those words, remember that Travis and the
did not have the A.C.L.U., P.E.T.A., People for the
un-American Way, and the National Education
Association telling them how intolerant and
narrow-minded their notions of honor and patriotism
were. A hostile media did not constantly castigate them
as a bunch of wild-eyed extremists. As school children,
they were not taught that their forefathers were
nothing more than racist jerks.
