A YouTube video by actor Bob Basso portraying a modern day Thomas Paine is sweeping this country. Not since "I want my country back" has something so pro-American, so red white and blue, so revolutionary, taken this country by storm.
It calls for the 2nd American Revolution, and that apparently has Obama worried. Unconfirmed reports say that the Obama White House has contacted Basso and told him they would like to "meet" with him, and until then, they would prefer he not discuss the video in the media. Again this is an unconfirmed report.
Please watch this reminder of what our responsibility as a citizen of this country should be.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKFKGrmsBDk
And to the new administration, just a reminder, we still have freedom of speech. You haven't taxed us or jailed us out of that...yet.
Tell me your thoughts on Bob Basso's performance. A Patriot or Subversive?
Clearly I believe he is a patriotic American.
And just in case you are a product of the public schools and never learned about Thomas Paine, please read about the Father of the American Revolution who wrote the phrase "These are the times that try men's souls" at http://www.ushistory.org/PAINE/ .
