Freedom still isn’t Free

Writing has never been a problem for me.

When I hear others refer to “writers block” my first thought is it might be time for them to look for something else to do.

My dilemma is not having something to say.  Mine is how many things I want to say, fighting with the things, that need to be said.

I publish one column a week, but most of the time, I have others, that just aren’t ready for public consumption.  This week was a little different.

After Alabama’s self-flagellation on Tuesday I felt only one thing.

It wasn’t fear, disgust, or anger.

It was rage.

Make no mistake this rage provided me with plenty of material but a major part of protecting Freedom is providing unequivocal truth with passion.

Not rage.

The Alabama outcome immediately took me back to the re-election of Obama.  It is my opinion, that one day in November, changed my life, and put me on a completely different path.

I wrote Late Bird, and had it published, which took me around the country meeting phenomenal Americans from Oklahoma, to Michigan, to Florida, to New York.

Always a silver lining if we look hard enough.

Still the return to that night in 2012 was difficult.  It seemed insane to me that Alabama would behave like California.

Talking head after talking head on the television, radio, or internet either rationalized or piled on.

It was either an anomaly or a wave of Liberalism headed our way.

I am not someone who wallows or drifts emotionally, spiritually, or physically.

When positive things happen I thank the Big Fella Upstairs.

When negative things occur I assess them, make adjustments if necessary, and then push forward.

Emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

I do not cast blame or ask for help from above.

My feelings are this.

God has given me Free Will and the prior generations in America have given me Freedom.

Asking for anything else would be greedy and I am not a greedy man.

I have been given the two greatest gifts possible.

The rest is up to me.

Throughout this week I have seen many times where people in America have asked WWJD?

What would Jesus do?

Some use it as a home base.  A measurement of what is Right and Wrong.

Others use it as a weapon to attack those who believe in the greatness of the message of Jesus.

Fortunately for me I do not carry his responsibility.

My name is Jason Kraus not Jesus Christ, and I am not here, nor do I have the power, to absolve sin, or offer a path to spiritual absolution.

I am here to protect these United States from all enemies foreign and domestic.

I am here to push Freedom Forward, to further light the path, that generations before me, carved out of the wilderness.

I do so without hesitation or reservation and will do so until my very last breath.

I will be breathing a very long time.

I guarantee it.

Each day, each minute, each second that we are on this planet, and can gratefully call ourselves Americans, is a beautiful gift.

Let not that gift be wasted by fear, apathy, or even rage.

Rise and stand with your fellow Americans shoulder to shoulder and be prepared to remove the scourge found at all levels of government in today’s society.

Emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

As American citizens each and every one of you is a gift that must continue to keep on giving.

To do so elongates your life, strengthens your soul, and most importantly guarantees that the gift known as Freedom is paid forward to the next generation, and the next, in the form of Liberty not Liberal.

You the American Citizen will guarantee that the United States of America will never go quietly into the night.

You are the beacon of hope, of passion, of determination.

Nothing in life is more important than Freedom.


I’ve said it many times and I will state it again.

This is OUR country.

Prepare to ensure it stays that way.

Jason Kraus
