Is the state of our nation right now the best that we can achieve? Are we so lazy and complacent as a people that we will accept being lied to blatantly? Are we so expectant of being taken care of in this country that we have surrendered our will and sense of self determination to an “elitist few”, who care nothing about us as human beings, but only for the power we can give them? Are we willing to follow blindly anyone who promises us what they really can’t deliver, like the rats after the Pied Piper? Have we really forgotten how to take responsibility for ourselves and demand the same from others?
Is it true that we will accept corruption and immorality just because “that’s the way it is?” Is it true that we no longer dream or aspire to reach the highest pinnacle of our talents and our knowledge? Do we no longer tell our children, and believe it ourselves, that we can be anything that we want to be if we just work hard and persevere? Do we tear down those of all colors that have gained wealth through their labors, their ideas, and their dreams? Do we indeed demand something for nothing as a “right” and not a privilege, for living in this great land? Do we help others to gain a reward, or just because that’s what Americans do?

Has our sense of right and wrong become so callous that we will accept the corruption that comes out of our nations capital and flows to every sewer pit in this country that sees it as doing” business as usual?” Are we willing to allow our public school system to teach our children about sex, Wicca (witchcraft,) and Islam, and yet fight everything Judeo-Christian about American life? Are we willing to allow our military people to die in places they really don’t need to be, just to prove a point? No end game, no assistance, no trust in the people we are fighting for, and a no win situation (kind of like Afghanistan and our soldiers being killed by those we are supposedly fighting to protect)?
Do we really believe that we are promoting “women’s health” by allowing them to kill their unborn babies? We allow political parties to worry more about their accumulated power than about whether of not what they are doing is good for the country as a whole. We allow some activist judges to sit on their thrones and throw out the laws that we have to satisfy their socially active desire to play god! Why? Through our Republican representative form of government we have the power and the right through our representatives to remove ANYONE from office who oversteps their authority! That also DOES NOT mean that every MINORITY group in this country, or even militant individuals have the right to start a flurry of frivolous lawsuits to change the world into their image. Why don’t we all pressure our representatives into passing a law that if you bring a frivolous lawsuit and LOSE you have to pay ALL court costs on both sides?
Why do we allow the American Civil Liberties Union to get reinbursed by the government for every lawsuit they file, whether reasonable or not? Let them get paid out of the pockets of their plaintiffs…..if they win! Why do we respond to negative advertising without probing into what the truth really is behind the ad? There is an old saying that if you want to avoid conflict then never talk politics or religion. You know that’s funny because one can keep you out of hell while the other can make your life here on earth a living hell? Avoidance at all costs? Only at you own peril!
We need to change America and keep her strong so that our kids can enjoy baseball games, sports, music, and a bright future. We adults need to know that our borders are safe, our food and water are safe, and there are people out there who guard and protect us under God’s watch to keep us safe from our enemies and secure in our nation. We need to get back to the fundamentals of our founding fathers and make this country the economic envy of the world once again. We have more brain power, knowledge, and are more technologically advanced human beings in this country than anywhere else on the planet! Why?, because we offer the world’s freedom loving people something they can only find in it’s purest form here, in America…..LIBERTY!

Is this present circumstance really the best we are capable of? Only if we choose to accept it. Our college graduates and our people need good paying jobs! Our country needs energy independence and the jobs that quest would generate. America needs to recapture our manufacturing past because we did and will again make the best products on the planet. We need to reform our immigration system so that NO ONE waits more than five years to become an American citizen.
Mostly, we need people who want to become Americans, not some pampered minority group. Americans who are proud of their country and willing to contribute to her greatness. We need people who want to become leaders to UNITE our melting pot country, not divide us with fear and hatred. My thoughts to those who may think this all “patriotic propaganda,” let me just say that there are flights leaving on the hour to places all over the world more suited to your anti-American attitude. This 4th of July remember our warriors, both living and dead, men and women, who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their time and their lives so that you and I could maintain this wonderful country for future generations. God bless you all….Happy 4th.
