Tell me, are you a patriot?
"My country, right or wrong" ~
Did you ignore protestors
when they sang The Mena Song?

Tell me, are you a patriot?
How 'bout some blood for oil?
When evil men wax worse and worse
does it make your blood boil?

Don't ask me my opinion ~
I'll tell you I don't know,
Where God is gray, not black and white,
I won't say stay or go.

Would Jesus welcome immigrants,
legal or otherwise?
Would He prefer a Free for All
or cut us down to size?

America, I love her,
I thank God that I'm free,
I don't have all the answers, but
the One who does, loves me!

Some rant and curse the President,
some find fault with this Land;
Some stigmatize and criticize
those who oppose their stand.

When Satan comes acallin'
they hang the Welcome Sign ~
"Just keep your notions to yourself
if they don't fit with mine!"

If God had made us robots ~
no choice to override,
We'd all be seeking His own heart
and Christ would not have died.

Thank God He gave us Freedom
to choose Him on our own ~
Thus Sin and War prevail on earth
till Christ rules from His Throne.

Are we still on God's A-List:
His daughters and His sons?
Would Jesus choose America?
Are we His Favored Ones?

Tell me, are you a patriot?
Are you a hawk or dove?
Well, as for me ~ God, keep her free!
Protect this Land I love!
God bless this Land I love.

--Connie

"Why do the heathen rage,
and the people imagine a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the LORD,
and against His anointed, saying,
Let us break their bands asunder,
and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh:
the Lord shall have them in derision.
Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath,
and vex them in His sore displeasure."
(Psalm 2:1-5 KJV)

Ah, yes indeed you have made some poignant points with this little mini-rant, Connie. Answering you question, yes I am a patriot. Do I agree or condone everything our country has done, is doing, and might do? Hell no. But I look around and see not one country in the world who is doing it better than we. Would Jesus welcome the illegals? Don't know the answer to that, although everyone else seems to use that line to justify crimes against the state and country. I deal with the reality of this situation and I am highly p'oed that we are allowing foreign people who are in this country illegally (how hard a word is that to understand?) to protest in our streets. Try taking a few thousand gringos down to Mexico City and do a little protesting, see how quickly you wind up in a Mexican jail.

A sterling write that is made of stern stuff !
I admire you having the strength of your convictions..:)
You can't please all of the people, all of the time
God Bless America !
Love and Blessings

STtong and personal write, slighty provocative in nature. So many aspects of life in the US with all the different factions that I would be hard pressed if I were American to understand them all. I hate the way this immigration thing is going, it seems like a lot of new bigotries are forming and the whole war issues are so confused by politcal and media views I don't think anyone knows the truth anymore. Even our two countries seem to be putting up walls with high security, passports etc seems like one wall came down this century but more went up. Anyway I am babbling but your write made me think for sure. Well done.

Opinions are the bread of life that keeps us from being sterile.

There is nothing that fires people up more than a political statement, even one made in poetic form. I won't comment on the political views espoused because I don't think that my views really matter in this instance since I'm not an American. What I will say is that this poem was extremely well written and I enjoyed the way you delivered your message. Well done.
