Lost spirit of freedom

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

During the battle of San Jacinto April 21, 1836 9 Texans died, compared to the 1,360 Mexicans who lost their lives. The fighting quickly went from rifles to hand-to-hand. As the Texans overwhelmed the Mexicans, the Mexicans fled into the swamps and marshes.

In the book The Raven: A Biography of Sam Houston, it is noted some of the Mexicans were screaming “Me no Alamo !” as Texans gave the Mexicans the same quarter that was shown at the Alamo and Goliad.

The battle only lasted about 18 minutes. But the slaughter continued for an hour or so after the main battle ended.

Should America Return to Christian Values

A lady on my facebook feed posted an image that said, “like if you think America should return to its Christian values.”

Slavery – It was Christians, good GOD fearing people that helped make slavery part of American history. To be fair, and to spread the blame, a good number of slave ships were owned by Jews. If we want to go back to our Christian values, are we going to enslave blacks?

Drinking – It was GOD fearing Christians that gave us Prohibition. Are we going to outlaw drinking again?

Marijuana – it was good GOD fearing Christians that helped outlaw the use of marijuana.

Gay Lifestyle – it was GOD fearing Christians that has helped fuel hatred towards gays. Shouldn’t we let someones lifestyle be their choice, instead of societies choice.

Why would we want to live a lifestyle that promotes hatred towards certain people? What kind of GOD tells his followers to kill people who commit adultery?

Maybe we need to scrap the old testament and following the teachings of Christ. Forget the apostles, forget the teachings of everyone that came after Christ. If we took the teachings of Christ, and Christ alone, then, and only then would there be a religion worth following.

What makes Christ so different? Because he taught people to love one another, period.

History will hold us responsible

survivalistI was watching some program on History channel, or Discovery channel today about World War II. The program talked about what the Allied soldiers saw when one of the concentration camps were liberated.

After the camps weres liberated, the people from the nearby town were ordered to help bury the dead. The people of the town said they had been lied to by the nazi party.

The narrator of the program said the people of the towns were liars and as guilty as sin.

If the people living in the towns near the concentration camps were guilty, what does that make the citizens of the U.S.?

Will history look back and compare the United States government to the nazi party over our human rights violations?

What difference is there between the way the nazis treated the Jews, and the way the U.S. government treated Blacks and Native Americans?

nazis rounded up Jews and sent them to concentration camps.

United States government rounded up Native Americans and sent them to reservations.

nazis treated jews as subhuman.

United States government treated Blacks and Native Americans as subhumans.

Blacks were treated as property that were bought and sold on the open market.
