The Birthers Are Losers! The Birthers Are Winners!
My son and I just finished a 30 minute game of Candy Land. I won, finally. He's beat me a lot. So much in fact that when I won this time he threw down on the ground bellowing and sobbing.
I told him if he was going to act that way all the time when I won, I wasn't going to play the game with him anymore reminding him that when he won, I patted him on the back, shook his hand, and gave him Congratulations. I asked him to do the same for me.
This was like choking down dirt for him, but I continued firm in my request and shunned the game until he came to the table with his hand out and his congratulations was said in as genuine of a tone as a four year old could muster.
That got me thinking a little bit about winning and losing. How do we as parents teach our children to be "good losers" as well as "good winners", and does teaching them both not make them "neutral" anyway?
My Mom used to say "Celebrate your wins" in a way that reflected that if you didn't no one else was going to. That stuck in my head and I think its true. We should celebrate our wins but we're also taught to congratulate the other guy who lost to be a "good sport" wither we win or lose is a certain neutrality.
We're not devastated as much if we do lose because we understand the game can be played again and we're not as cocky when we win understanding that we could lose and be expected to "be a good loser" at the same time.
Now what about the game of "politics" and how well America functions with the winners and losers? I've often reflected that in politics it was the "losers" that actually were the one difference in a political race that celebrated the choice from Tyranny or a Dictator.
That is to say without someone losing a political race, what your left with is a Dictatorship or Tyranny in some form, so how grateful are we for those who run the race and lose in the American political arena?
When Republicans have won Democrats haven't gone off on a killing spree and when Democrats have won Republicans haven't gone off and decapitated the winners circle. In general, we are pretty good winners and we are pretty good losers in America when it comes to political races.
One of the reasons however we have been both good winners and good losers is we played under the same rule of law. That's what a Constitutional Republic is. Both winners and losers adhere to a Supreme Law and we call the Constitution the Supreme Law of the Land because it takes precedent over the winners and losers.
Winners don't get to "void" out the Constitution just because they won making everyone else slaves. When the law is disregarded however by winners, either to win the race, or in losing the race and being so bitter about the law, that is the recipe for war.
Its very interesting that the people in the three Branches of Government have basically exempted themselves from Obamacare, and some big companies have also seen fit to be "granted" excemptions in one way or the other. If Obamacare is so good, why isn't it eagerly looked forward to put on like a garment or a pair of shoes by those in the Government?
Isn't leading by example the test of a good principle anymore? What kind of example is our Government giving us?
I've been a very good loser in my life. At first I won a lot. I remember in my 13 year football career losing no more then a handful of times which was pretty incredible. Boy I had a taste for winning that seemed insatiable. Then life kind of caught up to me and started handing me out a big dish of losing. I lost wives, children, property, political races, so much it was an easy step to think I was just a big loser.
Life hitting me pretty hard in the losing direction was a winning event for me however. I started to gain not only an appreciation for losers, but an appreciation for losing and what I was learning in the process that all of a sudden I wouldn't have wished otherwise. The foundation I thought was crumbling was actually being made much stronger and I found myself thanking God for my trials and realizing that adversity does build character.
In Roosevelt Utah in the news a head Football Coach got wind of his players not pulling their grades, and even the report of their bullying some other kids started. Of course it wasn't the whole team, but the coach decided to pull the entire teams equipment from them. "Your not worthy to play this game!", was the message with your actions reflecting your character.
Community service ensued, grades and attention to homework, as well as a greater respect for others followed equipment being reassigned. I recalled as a sophomore in my own high school the stand my head coach took against nearly the whole starting senior team when it was found that caffeine pills were being used inappropriately as a drug for practice and games.
Oh my, talk about devastating a group of kids as far as football was concerned in what was supposed to be their highlight their Senior year! Shock waves rippled through the community and have continued to be remembered for, well, here I am writing about it 30 years later.
Playing by the rules is important and when winners start changing the rules as they go along, and manipulating the contest, or race in order to gain or use power, well that's when a great system breaks down. In America we've had a great system of Government, of course we've had some problems, but generally war hasn't broke out over an election, but it was because we had the "law" that we felt we could trust.
With Obamacare, we are shown that the people in the Government don't trust it, so it follows, why do they even think we would trust it?
The same logic applies to Obama himself and his eligibility to occupy the Office of the President. If our Government in all three branches is unwilling to recognize the foreign influence a danger to our Independence as a national security threat, and the application of the knowledge gained in hearings on the subject as recent as 2000 as wisdom, how can we trust them?
You know that's one big reason the oath to the Constitution is taken by every official working for us. They swear an oath to the Constitution as an adherence to a Supreme Law that's good for everyone. Do you realize how much blood has been spilt over that law and the differences in opportunity that law provided everyone over our lifetime?
So what possesses people to change it and what possesses people to resent it, and in resenting it, what is the application that is being championed?
Tyranny, Dictatorship, slavery.. these are the principles that are anti-Constitution. One need look no further then Obama squirming about saying he was a 'native born' citizen to know and understand he is not a natural born citizen- born in the United States to Citizen Parents.
Now I don't hate Obama because he's not qualified to be President. I don't like his actions of fraud upon our Law and I do think its a national security threat, however I have defended protected and preserved the principles of the law by going through the proper channels to champion the Constitution, because I do believe in it. We Birthers haven't given up, because we have patience for the law.
Perfect law will have its perfect way and perhaps it isn't instant justice, but justice does have its reward and while the sun comes up on all, both the weak the strong, the wicked the righteous, the lessons we learn every day are of great value to principles. Perhaps a short stint with the devil is necessary for 1,000 years of peace because it creates a desire for the Constitutions values.
The burden and yoke of debt is heaviest upon the prisoner who longs for a breath of fresh air, who longs for the smell of a rose, who yearns to hear the songs of freedom the birds sing. I've thought a lot about the Lord repeating so much in the scriptures he will release the prisoners. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters and so it is for those not weighed down in such insatiable debt prone to winning at all cost hungry and never satisfied.
To open America's Government up, open America's borders up in such a way as the Supreme Law of the Land known as our Constitution is not applicable any longer is to reason there is no difference in America and any other Country in the World.
Here in America we do love winners, but I think we love losers too and in some fashion that neutrality pointed in the direction of the United States Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land affords us the trust that has made America so wonderful!
That's the reason we fight so hard for the Constitution that affords opportunity to win and to lose. God bless us all.
