Tim Thomas: Super Star and Model AMERICAN
Tim Thomas respectfully declined attending the White Houses late honoring of the Boston Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup Championship. Now it seems the whole hockey world is on his nuts for “abandoning” his team and “disrespecting” his country. I think that is a complete load of bull shit. I have 10x the respect for Tim Thomas now than I ever have. The man stuck to his beliefs and made a decision to show where he stands and to also stick up for the people who don’t get this chance. To me Thomas’ decision makes him a hero to the average American.
This had nothing to do with politics or part affiliation either. He is not backing some front-runner for the next election as you can see in a statement he made on facebook “the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties and Property of the People.” And the man is right. Not only does he believe in what he just said anyone who knows him knows his mask bears the famous phrase from the beginning of our country and the Gadsden flag “DON”T TREAD ON ME”. Thomas isn’t blowing this up and out of proportion like the media. He made one first and final statement:
“I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.
“This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government.
“Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL.
“This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic. TT”.
Those who are currently criticizing Thomas’ decision are whats wrong with this country now. You are there for your country and for your fellow-man you are there for your party and its money and power. This country was built on the backs of the working men and women toiling for what we wanted. They fought the wars and in the beginning it was those men who made extraordinary sacrifices and managed great feats to lead us to victory that had the honor of guiding us as a whole and shaping our nation. Now who are these goons, its come down to who has the most money and sucks off the biggest corporations, who has the lowest golf score and spits the most venomous candied lies to sway the masses towards the dreams of a better tomorrow. Our blood sweat and tears build their thrones and fills their jewel encrusted chalices.
