Several comments I have viewed and read by those who are obviously in the twenty-something group have caused feelings of sadness, disgust, and downright disappointment at where our country is going.
I watched some “man on the street” interviews about what Thanksgiving meant to those being interviewed. The responses, for the most part, sickened me. None of them had anything to do with thanking God for the blessings He has poured out on our nation or for the many individual blessings most of us enjoy.
It did not seem as though these people who are too young to have any real ‘life experiences’ had any love at all for the freedoms they enjoy. Instead, it appeared that they were all simply spewing the liberal/progressive opinions that were (obviously) successfully implanted into their empty little heads.
The comments were all about how the nasty colonists came here and were equal to Hitler in what they did to this land and those original inhabitants of what we now call North America. We were heartless and cruel butchers and enslavers – nothing more, and we certainly should do away with this barbaric celebration of our actions. It appears that these youthful bubble-heads with no track record of their own have been taught to simply degrade, belittle, and destroy what their ancestors have made possible for them.
Yes, we, as a nation, have made some big mistakes along the way (slavery was probably our biggest national shame). And, yes, we have been very wrong in some of our earlier decisions as a nation; but how dare these people who, as of now, have contributed absolutely nothing to anyone other than themselves. Where they are, at this point in their young lives, has been made possible at the expense of their parents or various scholarships and grants that have paid their way through their educational ‘enlightenment’ years on an American (liberal) campus.
When I look at all that is going on today, whether the Hamas/Israeli conflict, people demanding their ‘free stuff’ from those who actually contribute to the financial operation of our nation, the union bosses determined to completely demolish capitalism and the very companies from which they extract their dollars, or punks beating up people in shopping malls simply because they have no life of their own – it makes me sad for America. Frankly, it makes me want to puke in disgust and rise up and start swinging in anger.
An obviously (I am not speaking as a ‘sour grapes’ conservative, but simply as one who has studied the data) rigged election has only added fuel to the fire for those who do not want a helping hand up and out – but simply want to protect their turf that will provide a handout “for themselves and their posterity.” That is a very far cry from what our Founding Fathers spelled out in our Constitution and its Preamble, along with our Bill of Rights. But for the ‘gimmies’ in our nation, both legal and illegal – as well as our President – the Constitution and those other trivial documents obviously have no purpose in their ‘enlightened’ new world order.
