A Badge of Honor

D.L. Hammack
The left continues to label any and all who would oppose any of Obama's agenda items as a racist.  As I have, over the years, been called so many names, I'll happily take this brand as well if this is what it means to be a patriot.

Proudly, I opposed the takeover of our healthcare system...call me a racist.

I steadfastly oppose immigration reform that allows amnesty...call me a racist.

I support Arizona and their desire to protect the citizens of their state from the incursions across the border...call me a racist.

I firmly believe in the Constitution and its limit on governmental powers...call me a racist.

I abhor the restriction of free speech being considered in the Fairness Doctrine...call me a racist.

I reject the concept of union card check...call me a purple-shirted racist.

I support tea party candidates and their desire for smaller government...call me a racist.

Finally, with 100% conviction, I  am repulsed by the thinly-veiled attempts to redistribute wealth through government entitlement programs...call me whatever you want-for the Constitution (for now) allows you to do so.

If I must wear this moniker in order to be heard, then I gladly accept your conditions.
