What Is Happening To Our Country?
Am I the only person who’s fed up with what’s happening in our country? Where the hell is the outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder! We have a gang of tax cheating, clueless leftists trying to steer our country over a cliff, Our Law makers can’t run a cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of we taxpayers money. Everyone seems to sit around and nod their heads when politicians say, “trust me, the economy is getting better’.
Better? You’ve got to be kidding me. This is America, not some third world country. I hardly recognize my country anymore. Our business leaders are no longer the innovators; they’re the guys being held in handcuffs. We’re fiddling around in Afghanistan because we no longer have any Chesty Pullers, Blood and Guts Patton’s, Bull Halsey’s, and no more Curtis LeMay’s. Iran is completing their nuclear bombs and missiles and no one seems to know what to do about it, or care. We’re too busy walking around in a daze with a Chinese made phone in our hands making hundreds of friends we don’t know and never will. Our national treasury is in the hands of Red China and what monetary reserves left in America is being run by George Soros. That’s not the promise of the America my great great great grandparents traveled across the ocean for.
So here is where we stand today.
We’re immersed in a bloody war with no plan for winning, however, we’re going to cut and run in 2014. Our enemies are waiting and playing us like a fiddle “Our military must get permission before killing those laying IED’s and, our soldiers and Ambassadors are dying.
We’re running the biggest deficit in the history of the world, and it’s getting worse every day! We’ve lost the manufacturing edge to Asia, while health care costs, and Government control are slaughtering our once-great companies. Gas prices are going higher again over .20 cents this week alone, and nobody in power has any plans on drilling for oil in order to solve the problem. This country has the largest oil reserves in the WORLD, and we can’t drill for oil because the environmentalists have bought our politicians. Our schools are a complete disaster because of the teachers union. Our borders are like sieves and our Government wants to give illegal’s amnesty and free healthcare. The small business owners are being squeezed to death every day.
These are times that cry out for real leadership. But when you look around, you’ve got to ask: ‘Where have all the leaders gone?’ Where are the creative communicators? Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, and common sense? Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security other than making us take our shoes off at airports and dump our shampoo. We’ve spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened. All it really takes is a phone call to NICKS or our own Florida FDLE. If you can’t pass a background test to purchase a Firearm, you can’t fly how easy is that? Law abiding citizens have no problems flying, and criminals do.
Everyone seems to be hunkering down, hoping the government will make it better for him or her. Ladies and Gentlemen, I have three words for you, “Deal with life”. Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when ‘The Big Three’ referred to Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more importantly, look what Obama has done about it! Absolutely nothing. It’s difficult believing some upstart Kenyan born Luo Tribesman American hater would know what to do in saving our country anyway. Name me any other government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debt, solve the energy crisis, or manage the health care problem.
I’m not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I’m trying to light a fire. I’m speaking out because I have hope – I believe in America the country I have fought for and love. In my lifetime, I’ve had the privilege of living through some of America ‘s greatest moments. I’ve also experienced some of our worst crises: ‘World War II,’ the ‘Korean War,’ the ‘Kennedy Assassination,’ the ‘Vietnam War,’ the 1970′s oil crisis, and the struggles of recent years since 9/11.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sewn will never be uprooted. Give us the child for eight years, and it will be a Bolshevik forever. Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov better known to us as Lenin penned these words. Is this where we’re going?
Obama and his socialist followers won, I just hope they’re not in power long enough to completely corrupt our once great nation.
