February, T'is the Month to Celebrate, Not the Birth but the Liberty of Each of Us

Today, February 1 2010, is the first day in the commemoration of black history in this nation. So, grandpa suggested that our next post begin this month by celebrating, as far as I’m concerned, the greatest man that has influenced my political ideas. It was his words that instilled into me the meaning of the God-given rights that are so clearly defined within our Declaration of Independence that I possess even to this day.

It was his words that instilled into this one the real meaning of the word liberty. For he was a black man, a slave owned and who better is there to know the real feeling of the meaning of freedom than one who suffered without any real idea of its meaning until freed? Even the founding fathers could not have known the meaning of liberty as this man did.

It was this man and his words that has led me in my regards to the idea of socialism and what it will mean to us as a people.If there would be words spoken to those who seek socialistic ideas as solutions to the problems of this nation they would be the words of this man. For he would understand what it would mean to the very soul of the individual.

Listen and hear his words spoken aloud and so eloquently by James Earl Jones.
