New Life for an Old Symbol: “Come And Take It!”

Whether it’s Obama’s elitist disdain for the great unwashed who, “cling to guns or religion,” or McCain’s disregard for the majority of American citizens who don’t want to grant amnesty to ILLEGAL ALIENS, one symbol stands out as the symbol of the day! It’s the Come And Take It” symbol, flag, and slogan used in the Texas Revolution in 1835. This symbol is no longer hiding in a dusty history book. It is now being resurrected as the symbol of America’s fight against Illegal immigration.
&
Since the 1980’s gun-rights advocates have modified the original cannon symbol; using instead an aggressive looking assault rifle. But the original cannon has behind it the strength and subtle symbolic power of our long history with Mexico. The symbol of that little original 6 pound Come And Take It cannon now belongs to all American citizens who stand up in defiance of the Mexican invasion!
&
&
We will not be overwhelmed!
&
Imagine May Day 2009. Instead of retching at the sight of Mexican flags flying over our American streets, imagine a sea of white and black Come and Take It flags flying as a sign of American Unity against illegal immigration!
&
Imagine walking into your local grocery store or Wal-Mart any day and seeing many other Americans proudly wearing their Come And Take It T-shirts or ball caps.
&
Imagine thousands of bumper stickers in this election year with the simple words “Come And Take It!” Talk about sending a message to both candidates!!!
&
If we can’t see ourselves flying the Come And Take it Flag, or wearing the T-shirt or ball cap, then we better be able to envision ourselves living under the domination of Mexican Flag!
&
&
Note to Mexico: Those who fail to remember history are doomed to repeat history!
&
Here’s the brief history of Come And Take It from the Gonzales, Texas Chamber of Commerce.
&
“In 1831 the Mexican government loaned the citizens of Gonzales a six-pound cannon as protection against the Indians. In September of 1835, as political unrest grew, Mexican officials at San Antonio de Bexar demanded the cannon be returned.”
&
Well that just didn’t happen! Read the entire story here.
&
Here’s how it ended:
&
“There, in the early-morning hours of Oct. 2, 1835, the colonists crossed the river with their cannon, surprising the troops and waving their hastily fashioned flag, which proclaimed “Come and Take It.” Almost immediately the cannon fired, killing one of Castenada’s men and scattering the rest, forcing them to retreat to San Antonio de Bexar. Thus was fired the shot that set off the struggle for Texas independence from Mexico.”
&
It’s such a simple symbol that anyone with a black permanent marker and white cloth can quickly duplicate it! But wouldn’t it be nice to find a place where we can buy Come and Take It! items?
&
When I suggested a line of Come And Take It gifts, clothing, and caps to Texas Fred, he immediately got with the folks at CafePress and added an entire page of Come And Take It goodies. Fred wisely included both the original and modified symbols on his products.
&
Disclaimer: I am not involved in Texas Fred’s financial ventures but I applaud his initiative in getting the ball rolling! Check out the Come And Take It gifts here.
&
&
Here are some Come and Take It Flag resources:
&
&
&
&
“ . . .The truth is that the overwhelming evidence proves that a super majority of Americans oppose Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Guest Worker Program, Temporary Worker Program, Path to Citizenship, etc… That is why the supporters of amnesty have to keep changing the name!
&
A majority of Americans support the enforcement of our existing immigration laws only, which results in illegal aliens returning home on their own or with government assistance.
&
Any lawmaker, candidate, reporter, activist, or organization that supports the current lack of enforcement of the existing laws, or supports the overthrow of these laws by passage of new legislation, which a majority of Americans oppose, is a traitor to the American republic and an enemy of the citizens of the United States. . . .”

Fellow Bloggers and "Right" Thinkers

Since the inception of The Victory Caucus (www.VictoryCaucus.com or hit the direct link button on the left side bar), and my appointment as moderator, I’ve been blessed to be associated with many fine bloggers. Many of our members are retired Veteran’s, parents of troops currently serving, members of the Gathering of Eagles–in short, people you want on your side in a dark alley or backing you up against the barking mad moonbats.

You will also notice a Victory Coalition Blogroll, along with my links, also on the left sidebar. I highly recommend taking some time to visit each of the Coalition bloggers (more added periodically) as well as many of the links.

One of my favorite blogs is this one: “Capitalism or Socialism…You Decide” and the direct link is here: http://takeourcountryback.townhall.com/. This is hosted by my friend Snooper, a Veteran and an Eagle. I also call him friend.

Below is a sampling of what you can find on Snooper’s blog:

“The Pathology of the Leftinistra:

This is an excellent piece of analyzing the Leftinistra as to what drives them and what to do about it.

Please visit this site to read, learn, heed and combat Moonbatisms.

Teasers:

From the inception of psychology over 100 years ago, conditions such as autism, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, narcissism and Tourette’s syndrome were thought to be psychological in origin – and that with enough therapy, enough blaming inadequate parenting, enough talk, enough delving into “feelings,” the sufferer could be treated successfully or even cured.

Liberal pathology

I suspect that at the core of liberal “thinking” is the same kind of pathology that characterizes other mental disorders, i.e., a glitch in the brain that produces “feelings” and behavior over which liberals have no control.

Liberals are like children

Liberals, like children, live in a world of utopian dreaminess, clinging to a narrow, circumscribed reality and believing that if everyone would just be nice to each other – let’s talk, let’s chat – all the noisy death threats and pesky suicide bombings would go away, and all those grumpy grownups in the current administration would see the light.

A rage that knows no bounds

Children take things personally. “My father is bigger (stronger, smarter) than your father” is just about intolerable to the average child. “Is not!” “Is too!” is an exchange that inevitably results in either tears or fists. In 2000, when George W. Bush ascended to the presidency, the initial despair of liberals quickly morphed into childlike, irrational anger, which has obsessed them for the past six years.

Fathoming liberal rage

To understand the left’s treasonous rage, it is important to understand that the most cherished value in the life of children (read liberals) is to be “liked” by their peers, a theory that Judith Rich Harris has exhaustively documented in her best-selling and revolutionary book, The Nurture Assumption…” Read the full story at the link above.

Another recent article from Snooper:

“Censure the Leftinistra:

Put Up Or Shut Up!!

Where are ALL the men in DC? Out washing dishes or what? Are you men or mice? Squeak up!!!Expulsion, Censure, Reprimand, and Fine: Legislative
Discipline in the House of Representatives Summary

The House of Representatives is expressly authorized within the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 5, clause 2) to discipline or “punish” its own Members. This authority of the institution of the House to discipline a Member for “disorderly Behaviour” is in addition to any criminal or civil liability that a Member of the House may incur for particular misconduct, and is a device or procedure designed not so much as merely a punishment of the individual Member, but rather ultimately as a measure to protect the institutional integrity of the House of Representatives, its proceedings and its reputation…” Complete story at above referenced link.

And yet a third:

“Impeach Pelosi:

I wonder if there are any men left in DC, especially in our Congress and any of the other branches of Government.

Clearly and, once again, a Leftinistra has overstepped their bounds and not one coward will stand up to IT.

WHY IS THAT?Are there no men left in Washington? Or are they all cowards? (Where have we heard those questions before?)

The Logan Act

Conducting Foreign Relations Without Authority: The Logan Act Summary

The Logan Act, codified at 18 U.S.C. § 953, states:

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects…” Again, read complete story at above referenced link.

The bottom line is this, people. We are incessantly battered and inundated with a very vocal minority bent on turning this nation into a failed utopian mess ala Stalin, Marx and Lenin.

We are faced with this minority shoving their lack of moral values upon us, forcing us into the goose-stepping political correctness, cultural diversity mess we see.

We are faced with a bunch of children who haven’t grown up, yet are controlling our Congress.

Do you remember the Johnson years? The Carter years? The Clinton years?

Do you really want your children to learn revisionist history, excluding the Holocaust for fear of offending islamofascists bent on killing us and completely annihilating this country–as they have repeatedly stated?

Do you want your children learning that homosexuality is an acceptable lifestyle, AIDS doesn’t discriminate, tax increases are the only way to a healthy economy, illegal aliens should not have to follow the law of the land, God doesn’t exist, etc., etc., etc., all in the name of liberal defeatism shouted from the rooftops from the vocal minority?

If the answer is a vehement and unequivocal NO!, then get off your asses and get in the game.

Start educating yourself on the real issues, what’s really going on and how you can change it. Get over to the TVC, participate in the forums, read the blogs of those who have been there, done that, have the tshirt.

Quit being the mealy-mouthed, “oh I’m so afraid I’ll offend someone” MOUSE you’re being by giving in to these barkers, grow a spine and stand up for yourself, your family, your beliefs, your values, your rights and your country, THE GREATEST NATION IN THIS OR ANY OTHER TIME ON THIS EARTH.

Everybody in this country is called to serve in one way or another. If you can’t actively serve in the Armed Forces then support those who can and do. Adopt a soldier; hell, adopt a whole unit!

Believe it or not, the most important story of the day is NOT Anna Nicole or Brittany,or anything out of Hollyweird, nor is it the Goracle and his mad ravings. It’s here, NOW, and protecting our freedoms as our Founding Fathers laid out.

You either enjoy your freedom or you don’t. That’s the TRUE choice you have to make. God help you if you make the wrong choice.

The Original 24 Defeatist Republicans

Here’s the list of the original 24 defeatist Republicans, those that voted FOR the non-binding resolution and spent all that time engaging in traitorous activities against our troops, President and country while wasting YOUR hard-earned taxpayer dollars with their posturing and scrambling to retain their jobs.

Two of them, Wayne Gilchrest and Walter Jones, ALSO voted for HR 1591, the recent, PORK LADEN, time limit setting troop funding bill.

I have included information on the home offices of these defeatists because they often try to “hide” behind needing a ZIP + 4 zip code to send an email. I’ve got those ZIP codes here to use against them.

Let them know how YOU feel and use the information well!

The Original 24 Defeatist Republicans

Here’s the list of the original 24 defeatist Republicans, those that voted FOR the non-binding resolution and spent all that time engaging in traitorous activities against our troops, President and country while wasting YOUR hard-earned taxpayer dollars with their posturing and scrambling to retain their jobs.

Two of them, Wayne Gilchrest and Walter Jones, ALSO voted for HR 1591, the recent, PORK LADEN, time limit setting troop funding bill.

I have included information on the home offices of these defeatists because they often try to “hide” behind needing a ZIP + 4 zip code to send an email. I’ve got those ZIP codes here to use against them.

Let them know how YOU feel and use the information well!
