The Great Speeches

“Four Score & Seven Years Ago”

 Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

[2] Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

[3] But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate-we can not consecrate-we can not hallow-this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us-that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion-that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

The Gettysburg Address Lincoln, “Gettysburg Address,” Speech Text – Voices of Democracy ( everyone knows the opening line of Pres. Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address. The 2nd most quoted line is the opening sentence, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. The final line is also memorable.

“that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth”.

‘I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat”

“I would say to the House*, as I said to those who have joined this Government: I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength  that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. This is our policy. You ask, what is our aim?

I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory, there is no survival.”

*House of Commons. Chamberlin has resigned. Winston Churchill

becomes the PM of England. He’s addressing the House of Commons as he formed the new government. Churchhill was well known for his rousing inspirational speeches at the most critical points in Britain’s history. The rival speech was an “iron curtain has descended speech”. The Iron Curtain referred to the Communist regime of Russia.

“Ich bin ein Berliner” I am a Berliner

“I Have A Dream”

I hope everyone knows what his dream was.

“Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall”

This is not a speech but it was a pivotal moment in history.

“The People of Poland, the People of America, and the People of Europe still Cry Out ‘We Want God'”

This one also had a rival. Pres Trump’s State of the Union address where he declares that America will never be a socialist country. Pelosi looked furious at that point and at the end of his speech she tore up her transcript in full view of the cameras. No Speaker has ever done such at thing. Hands down though his speech to Poland wins out.

These great speeches have a common thread, God’s gift of liberty.

We Were Taught, ☭Communism☭ is Evil👿

When my brother and i started school in 1957 it was understood that communism was an evil system of government. The U.S.S.R was an enemy of the United States. It was part of the American psyche and culture. This was taught in our Catholic school. We learned that the Communist system was godless and a danger to freedom. We could see for ourselves it was no joke. The Berlin Wall separated East and West Berlin. People were shot for trying to escape the communist side of the wall.

With the help and support of its occupying powers, West Germany set up a capitalist society. The economy experienced such a rapid growth that it became known as the “economic miracle.” With hard work, individuals living in West Germany were able to live well, buy gadgets and appliances, and travel as they wished.


Nearly the opposite was true in East Germany. The Soviet Union had viewed their zone as a spoil of war. They pilfered factory equipment and other valuable assets from their zone and shipped them back to the Soviet Union.


When East Germany became its own country in 1949, it was under the direct influence of the Soviet Union and a Communist society was established. The economy of East Germany dragged and individual freedoms were severely restricted.

All About the Rise and Fall of the Berlin Wall (

We will always remember Nikita Kruschev for pounding his fists* on a table at the U.N. in a rage. He is especially remembered for proclaiming the Soviet Union would bury the West-meaning  particularly, the United States. We knew plenty about his predecessor Josef Stalin. Both men were ruthless but Stalin was the more ruthless responsible for the death of millions.

We remember our instructions to duck under our desks in case of a nuclear attack but now realize how naive and ridiculous that was; at least we had a sense of security albeit a false one. We lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis when Kennedy was President. It wasn’t until years later we learned how close we were to nuclear war. 

The proliferation of nuclear weapons gave us the MADD doctrine. Ever see the movie War Games? It was a fictionalized version of the MADD doctrine played out. MADD stood for Mutually Assured Destruction  and it was actually a deterrent from either side launching a first strike. Bottom line; end of both countries.

Communism is godless and has enslaved the people of every country where it is implemented.  The state becomes god and freedom of religion is always one of the first rights denied. It is why President Ronald Reagan and Our Holy Father now Saint John Paul II shared the same goal regarding the Soviet Union. 

John Paul II’s beloved country of Poland suffered first under rule by Nazi Germany only to be occupied again, replaced by the godless Communist regime.

Given what we were taught in school and what we experienced in the events of that time it’s understandable why we are so grateful for this country and our founding documents. It’s not to say our country has not had its shameful periods where it didn’t live up to its founding documents but the history classes we were taught in, always covered the good, the bad and the ugly.

I think we must have lost that at some point. There are people now-in political office especially-who are comfortable with Marxist ideology. I’ve watched our much respected FBI turn into the KGB. 

It’s horrifying. Imagine getting out of Cuba,coming to the U.S. to escape communism only to see the same tactics being used here. I’d like to know if the  FBI agents pulling off the recent raids believe they are justified?

What i learned about Marxism/communism growing up should scare the crap out of everyone.Freedom loving patriots can’t believe what they’re seeing.

i remember when Venezuela fell for the dictator-President Nicolas Maduro- they’re stuck with now. It was one of the richest South American countries in that hemisphere. Oil rich. People are digging through garbage for food  now.Their economy has collapsed. Same mind set here; that could never happen in the United States. That’s what they thought in Venezuela when they elected Maduro.

My grandfather fought in WWI. My dad was a WWII vet. My son enlisted in the military right out of high school. His biological father was a Marine wounded in Vietnam. None of these people risked their lives to protect Marxism. They fought to keep us PROTECTED FROM Marxism/ Fascism. None of these ppl risked their lives for the country so the FBI could do raids on Biden’s political opponents.

I know Peter Strozk, Lisa Page, James Comey, Clapper and Brennan didn’t like Donald Trump and were plotting to keep him from getting elected.Same goes for Obama,Biden. the Clintons and a handful of other FBI/IC agents-mostly higher up-

working to keep Trump from getting elected.  They decided to work at destroying his presidency after he was elected. Problem here folks-you think they could see it.

The American people vote for the candidate of THEIR choice. The FBI does not have to be crazy about the choice  but  they  have no right to interfere in a free and fair election..  They’re entitled to their opinion. They’re not entitled to try and pull off a soft coup. and/or target his supporters. 

Why don’t these people see the dangers of Marxism? Don’t they  have any idea how evil it is and what it has done to various countries and their citizens?  Do they think  it’s going to be different here if ‘we ‘get it right’? WRONG. If you don’t respect our basic God given rights & the Constitution we were founded on we’re as doomed as the other countries that fell to Marxism. Where do people escape to when we fall? Where do WE go for our freedom? Somebody in the FBI/IC better think long and hard about what they’re doing. Maybe they didn’t have the benefit of the kind of  education and experience we had growing up?

They must have some idea what they’re doing isn’t right

[ you would think].  i know i have been uneasy about their recent activities. i always thought highly of  our FBI//IC.  Now it’s a feeling of something being off. Way off. You feel it too don’t you?

Communism :IS evil. It never ends well.

*Some reports alleged that Kruschev took off his shoe and waved it.
