Beyond the obvious technological advancements that have mostly benefited our lives, many of the issues we are currently wrestling with as a people weren’t even conceivable in 1989. Given that trend line, and the fact we are domestically debating unprecedented existential threats to individual liberty, the next 25 years could become American Exceptionalism’s tipping point moment barring revival.
Most Americans today would call themselves patriots. Would you? But what does that mean…to be an American…to be a patriot? What is the basis for your self-description as a patriotic American? This is something to think about!
Isn't it wonderful that we fought a Marxist totalitarian system for decades in a Cold War which we finally won when we got the guts to get serious about winning....only to embrace such practices in our own country? Andrew Klavan at the Revolting Truth will help you to understand income redistribution. You didn't really want all that money you worked for, did you? Silly freedom-lover!
YOU are no longer your own. That will be the bottom-line. Dependence on the government means they no longer work for you. Rather, you will needs be obedient to them or be faced with the real possibility of being cut off, penalized or punished.
Friends, at times it gets to the point where you have to throw your hands in the air and say, “Enough is enough!” That time for me is now. What’s worse is when you get around professed Christians, patriots and conservatives that add insult to injury when you go through their posts on the Internet, which seem like nothing but defeatism. And friends, I, for one, cannot stand it.
“Anyone who desires to be ignorant and free, desires what never was and never will be.” When Jefferson, the principle author of the American Declaration of Independence, wrote these words, he was expressing a truth that relatively few Americans appreciate today.
Why are we seeing such an uptick in Americans being arrested for such absurd “violations” as letting their kids play at a park unsupervised, collecting rainwater and snow runoff on their own property, growing vegetables in their yard, and holding Bible studies in their living room? Mind you, we’re not talking tickets or fines or even warnings being issued to these so-called “lawbreakers.” We’re talking felony charges, handcuffs, police cars, mug shots, pat downs, jail cells and criminal records.
Can you imagine if the American people really knew their history? America would realize that her founders did not tolerate these tyrannical usurpations whatsoever. Apparently, America is still in need of a history lesson. A lesson that will be a hard one to learn.
Are you an American? If you are, can I ask you a question? In your way of thinking, what makes you an American? Is it where you were born? Is it because of where you presently live? Does a SSN make you an American? Or a passport or driver’s License?
When Social Security was enacted in the 1930’s it seemed like a good idea. Everyone working would pay a small tax and those revenues could be used to pay a retirement stipend to retirees. But then there were 45 Americans working for every retiree. Because of longer life spans and shrinking families, this ratio is down to three to one today. This makes it impossible for this system to work. CBO projects that in 20 years there will be no funds to pay one third of the benefits of retirees.Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
