    One may begin with hope, but then it takes action to make it possible by supper time.

    Mantras might get you elected, but they will not sustain you forever. Eventually, actions speak louder than words.

    Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin's complete tenure demonstrates the accuracy of the statement's more broad understanding. Hope, at the beginning was a heart felt look at a feasting of the future's prosperity, bringing the races closer, stopping the cycles of war and unity of all would increase in peace. BUT, at the end of the day, such feast did not materialize - only to have every aspect of such hope dashed.

    False hope is neither a substantial breakfast nor a nourishing supper.

    Hope, rightly vested, is Life itself.


    As viscerally averse to this nation as the current Usurper-Pretender/Anti President/Commandante-in-Chief has been carefully conditioned to be, there exists no objective evidence to reveal that it has ever been his hope to do anything other than invest himself wholly in his endeavoring to be the instrument of the completion of the process of the desolation-dissolution of our once glorious Republic.

    His Ideal is that of an America rendered a fetid, flyblown, utterly ungovernable other than by totalitarian means, Third World backwater.
     -- Patrick Henry, Red Hill

    Hope is a Truly Amazing thing, Never confuse hope with doubt, for surly you will have no supper. Fourteen is the number of hope. Just as there are 14 days in the feast, it takes a bit of time to get to supper realized. Then to share that hope with others. Plant the Good seed of hope, water it well, patience in waiting on God to give the increase. That is a Firm Reliance such as our Founding Fathers intended. Liberty and Freedom reside in the hearts and minds, of those who would claim it.
