Rattlesnake Rising, Again


As many of my readers realize one of the early symbols of America was the Rattlesnake, it was popularized by Ben Franklin’s Pennsylvania Gazette. It is often seen used with the words “Don’t Tread on Me” In that form it often appears as the Gadsden Flag. which American troops fought under early in the Revolution, specially in the South.


It has made an appearance again as the current administration forced the healthcare bill down our throat. Americans were and are an obstreperous, stubborn lot when we think our freedom is threatened. Some things never change and that is why the Great Republic endures.

Anyway, this video came to my attention this morning again, it was made during the healthcare debate during 2010, and is just as valid today.


The dream lives on, America is wherever people yearn to breathe free, for it is not merely our land, it is the ideal of the free individual. Join with us, the torch of Liberty beckons, and lights the way.

    That’s what’s needed – firm resistance 🙂


    • It surely is, and we’re doing pretty good at it so far.

        Well, I am cheering you on for all I’m worth 🙂


        • Thanks! I think I had run that video once before but I just love it, especially with the Battle Hymn in the background. 🙂

          It is very rousing stuff! Made me want to go and make a stand!


        • No, with the Battle Hymn we march on to victory, we use Garryowen for last stand, or so the 7th Cav says.
