If there were only shades of gray you would not be reading this right now. This country wouldn't exist. We would still be under British rule and the entire Continent would probably be owned by several European countries. Shades of gray is also known as Political Correctness, Center of the road, non-judgemental, the attitude of it's ok as long as it's not affecting me.
Now If the founders of our country believed in shades of gray only, they wouldn't have fought the British. The Men at the Alamo would have packed up and gone home. Sam Houston would never have defeated Santa Anna. Elijah Lovejoy would never have been murdered in Alton Illinois for Freedom of speech and Freedom of the Slaves. The Civil War would never have happened. Abraham Lincoln would not have written the Emancipation Proclamation. The Germans would still be in Europe slaughtering Jews. Martin Luther King would Never have Shared his Dream. Saddam would still be in Kuwait. After 9/11 we wouldn't have bothered with Afghanistan or Iraq.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. There is a right and wrong, Good and Evil. A person has to make a choice. One way, he may be dead for his Choice. Another, he will be walking around but dead inside. Is it better to live a long uninteresting life offending no one? Or to live a life as long as you can, living on your principles! Living for an Idea that ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL! That this Government is of the People, by the People and for the People! That you can't suppress a person based on their race, sex, creed or income. That you have the FREEDOM to live where you want, pray where you want, and work where you want. To be FREE of people who want to control YOUR life and hide it behind Government or Fascism!
Those BRAVE SOULS in our history didn't see the gray, only the light. They chose RIGHT over wrong! GOOD over evil! FREEDOM over oppression! It is said that for evil to win all it takes is for Good men to do nothing!
So far, in our country Good has won over Evil when it has been recognized. The question is are you going to turn a blind eye to the Fascism and Evil Socialism that is threatening to take over this country? That is going to DESTROY this country? Will YOU ALLOW your children's children to be ENSLAVED by the Evil that hides behind Big Government and Religious Fascism?
STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!
"When they came for the gypsies, I did not speak, for I am not a gypsy. When they came for the Jews, I did not speak, because I wasn't a Jew. When they came for the Catholics, I did not speak, for I am not a Catholic. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak." -On the Wall at the Holocaust Museum in Washington
