The song “The Impossible Dream” was composed by Mitch Leigh, with the lyrics written by Joe Darion and was the most popular song from the 1965 Broadway musical “Man of La Mancha”. It was later recorded by Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, Elvis Presley, and Luther Vandross to name a few. The lyrics are:
“To dream the impossible dream, to fight the unbeatable foe, to bear with unbearable sorrow, to run where the brave dare to go. To right the unrightable wrong, to love pure and chaste from afar, to try when your arms are too weary, to reach the unreachable star. This is my quest to follow that star – no matter how hopeless no matter how far. To fight for the right without question or pause, to be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause. And I know if I’ll only be true to this glorious quest that my heart will be peaceful and calm when I’m laid to rest. And the world will be better for this, that one man scorned and covered with scars still strove with his last ounce of courage. To reach the unreachable stars.”
Those lyrics are nothing short of amazing and inspire me every time I read or hear them. In many ways, that is exactly what the colonist and our founding fathers faced when declaring America’s Independence in 1776. The DREAM of FREEDOM, for many, seemed an IMPOSSIBLE DREAM and a STAR TOO FAR. Yet, they had a dream in their hearts of a nation where there could be true freedom in a constitutional republic that recognized that all men were created equal and held inalienable rights that should and could never be stripped from them. They dreamed of a system of government in which men were free to pursue their dreams, risk their all, soar to the heights of accomplishment and enjoy the bounty of their success WITHOUT the interference or suffocating overregulation of the federal government. In the eyes and mind of the world that was THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM but they dared to dream and made an unshakable commitment to pursue that dream which became a reality and gave us the United States of America the Free Constitutional Republic.
Today, there are sinister forces at work to reduce that dream to ashes and ‘fundamentally transform’ America into something completely other than that nation which embodies and embraces THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM of our Founding Fathers and the Colonist of America in 1776. In past decades the erosion of our freedoms and the reshaping of our Constitutional Republic was slow but in the past decade, the slow wearing away has become more akin to a bulldozer razing everything we stand for and demolishing our Republic. Not all who vote Democrat want the destruction of the Republic but by continuing to elect uber-liberal politicians who have an agenda of ‘fundamental transformation’ that is anti-constitutionalism and limited government they are complicit in the collapse. I have had some, when confronted with that thought, become incredibly angry. They first directed their anger at me and all who embrace the views I hold of constitutional conservatism and then as the light came on they became bitterly angry at the deception. Yet, some still vote Democrat and today there are Republicans who are insisting, “Hillary won’t be that bad” as a justification for allowing her to become the 45 President of the United States of America. I challenge you to examine her history and the views of the Establishment of the Democrat Party and I believe if you do that openly and honestly you will change your mind about Hillary. I truly believe that she will, through misguided ignorance or malicious intent, destroy the remaining shreds of our Constitutional Republic and wage full-scale war on the Constitution and our Rights, Liberties, and Freedoms. CONTROL is the objective and a WORLD GOVERNMENT their destination. We allow it at our own peril.
I ask only that you carefully and earnestly examine the facts, consider the possibilities and pray, pray, pray for America. If you do so, then the decision you make will be one not based solely on emotion or preference but with a clear view of the future or failure of America.
God bless you and God bless America is my desire and prayer!
