Artist Jon McNaughton is a great painter and a stalwart, patriotic American. He’s done quote a few striking and well conceived paintings highlighting both patriotism and the plight in which we find ourselves in our relationship to our out of control, power hungry government.
He’s come out with a new painting entitled, The Empowered Man.
From the artist…
The Empowered Man
There is something simmering deep inside the soul of all Americans. We want to know that we are a free people; that the government acknowledges our individual rights; that fiscal responsibility is an absolute requirement. We want our presidents and politicians to mean what they say when they take the oath of office…”to defend the Constitution of the United States!”
Do we have freedom when half the country pays taxes to support the other half?
Do we have freedom when government regulates every aspect of our lives?
Do we have freedom when our currency is controlled by a corporation that has no accountability to the American people?
Do we have freedom when we have more debt than can possibly be repaid?
The government bureaucracy is to a point where it is no longer worth what the taxpayer is required to maintain it. I wonder how many Americans realize they have sold our God given freedoms for a mess of pottage.
I hope everyone will see themselves as the Empowered Man. It makes no difference whether you are a man or woman, how old you are, or the color of your skin. You must decide to no longer be silent, to get off your bench, pick up that Constitution and hold it high in the air as a standard for the world to see. Don’t hold back! Don’t be silent! You are the future of this nation and without YOU, the American dream will perish.
