Yesterday victims of the IRS targeting of conservative groups spoke before the House committee investigating this attempt to use the IRS as a political weapon.  The most riveting testimony was by Becky Gerritson of Wetumpka, Alabama:


“In Wetumpka, we are patriotic Americans. We peacefully assemble. We petition  our government. We exercise the right to free  speech. And we don’t understand why the government tried to stop us.

“I’m not here as a serf or a vassal. I’m not begging my lords for mercy. I’m  a born free American woman. Wife, mother, and citizen. And I’m telling my  government that you’ve forgotten your place. It’s not your responsibility to  look out for my wellbeing and to monitor my speech. It’s not your right to  assert an agenda. Your post, the post that you occupy, exists to preserve  American liberty. You’ve sworn to perform that duty, and you have faltered…

“What the government did to our little group in Wetumpka, Alabama is  un-American. It isn’t a matter of firing or arresting individuals. The  individuals who sought to intimidate us were acting as they thought they should,  in a government culture that has little respect for its citizens. Many of the  agents and agencies of the federal government do not understand that they are  servants of the people. They think they are our masters.  And they are mistaken.

“I’m not interested in scoring political points. I want to protect and  preserve the America that I grew up in. The America that people crossed oceans  and risked their lives to become a part of. And I’m terrified it is slipping  away.

“Thank you.”

People like Mrs. Gerritson are held in complete contempt by the powers that be in Washington.  From a town with a name like Wetumpka deep in the heart of fly over country she is naive enough to believe that what the Founding Fathers believed in when they set up this country still has meaning.  She fails to understand that powerful forces in this administration want to make certain that people like her are converted into subjects, who will be politically powerless, destined only to provide taxes for her betters to spend.  She must be crazy to think she and those who think like her can prevent this, no doubt as crazy as this gentleman:

They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable  an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the  next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard  shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution  and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying  supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our  enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make  a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our  power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in  such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which  our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles  alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who  will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the  strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have  no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire  from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our  chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The  war is inevitable and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

  1. What exactly has changed since 167 BC?

    Then the king’s officers who were enforcing the apostasy came to the city of Modein to make them offer sacrifice. Many from Israel came to them; and Mattathias and his sons were assembled. Then the king’s officers spoke to Mattathias as follows:

    “You are a leader, honored and great in this city, and supported by sons and brothers. Now be the first to come and do what the king commands, as all the Gentiles and the men of Judah and those that are left in Jerusalem have done. Then you and your sons will be numbered among the friends of the king, and you and your sons will be honored with silver and gold and many gifts.”

    But Mattathias answered and said in a loud voice:

    “Even if all the nations that live under the rule of the king obey him, and have chosen to do his commandments, departing each one from the religion of his fathers, yet I and my sons and my brothers will live by the covenant of our fathers. Far be it from us to desert the law and the ordinances. We will not obey the king’s words by turning aside from our religion to the right hand or to the left.”

    When he had finished speaking these words, a Jew came forward in the sight of all to offer sacrifice upon the altar in Modein, according to the king’s command. When Mattathias saw it, be burned with zeal and his heart was stirred. He gave vent to righteous anger; he ran and killed him upon the altar. At the same time he killed the king’s officer who was forcing them to sacrifice, and he tore down the altar. Thus he burned with zeal for the law, as Phinehas did against Zimri the son of Salu. Then Mattathias cried out in the city with a loud voice, saying:

    “Let every one who is zealous for the law and supports the covenant come out with me!”

    (1st Maccabees 2:15-27)

  2. Hi Becky Gerritson of Wetumka! I am proud to say that I agree with everything you stated in your emotional speech…God bless you for having the courage to stand up to obama and his kind…we need more like you in this great country, possibly to save it from the clutches of those who really don’t care about it, just what this country can DO for THEM. I hope and pray that those of us who really love the good ol’ USA vastly outnumber those who don’t, and that some day in the near future, we will see the country that so many of our brave young men and women died for become what it used to be…what it was founded on, and for which it is loved and respected throughout the world.

    Today there is silence from both Protestant and Catholic Pastors and
    Bishops regarding the tyranny of this administration. Why? They promote
    socialism labeled as “social justice.” How deceptive!!!
