The Trojan Horse

According to Wikipedia: "A 'Trojan Horse' has come to mean any trick that causes a target to invite a foe into a securely protected bastion or place."

Book II of Virgil's Aeneid covers the siege of Troy, and includes these lines spoken by Laocoon:
"Do not trust the horse, Trojans! Whatever it is, I fear the Greeks, even bringing gifts."
This is where the saying "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts" came from.

The story goes that the Greek army grew tired of the siege for the city of Troy. They built a large wooden horse and Greek soldiers hid in the horse. When the Trojan army thought the Greek army had left, they pulled the horse within the gates of the city as a victory trophy. While they partied and slept, the Greek soldiers climbed out of the wooden horse and opened the gates to the rest of the army, who then conquered the Trojans and captured the city.

Are there any modern examples of Trojan Horses? Well, maybe not as far as a wooden horse is concerned, but there are numerous examples of this kind of trick being used in politics in this country.

"Hope and Change" was a Trojan Horse. "Choice and Competition" is a Trojan Horse being used on us right now. "The Fairness Doctrine", "No tax increases except on the rich", "Spread the wealth around", "Health care reform", "Stimulus bills" are all Trojan Horses. The effort to ban guns is a Trojan Horse. "Pro-Choice" is a Trojan Horse. "Ethnic cleansing" was a Trojan Horse.

Here we are trying to restore and protect America in the form it was founded. We have an enemy who wants to "remake or reshape" America. They are very adept at using pleasing sounding terms and labels in order to hide their true agenda. When we let our guard down, they sneak right in, under our noses, and take control of another part of the country, society, economy, and our lives.

Folks, we are at war with an enemy who does not love this country. They have a very definite agenda to change, forever, our nation. They laid in wait, outside the gate for years while they planned and prepared for just the right minute when the guard was down, the gate opened and they were wheeled right into the seat of control. Troy is in the process of being conquered! We cannot afford to be asleep or partying. Diligence is a must and the vision of the great USA is the goal.

We need a modern Laocoon to speak out with a loud voice and warn the sleeping public before it is too late. Do not trust the Liberals, even when they appear to be bringing gifts!

Remember, they were at war with us but we were not at war with them.
