America 2013, a country on life support. A nation formed by a most beautiful document The Declaration of Independence has willingly strayed from the principles that made our nation great.
Where once we believed our rights come from God, we now believe they come from government. Were once we believed in self-reliance and personal responsibility we now look to government entitlements from cradle to grave.
A nation built on Judeo-Christian values has shunned religion, adopted secularism and think nothing about offering abortion pills to fifteen year old girls without doctor’s prescription or parental approval necessary.
America 2013 believes law-abiding citizens don’t have a right to bear arms. Our statist politicians try to illegally alter the 2nd Amendment and infringe upon our right to bear arms. Of course, this is done in the name of safety, and protection however their real intention is to control us.
America 2013 thinks nothing about the growing federal leviathan in Washington DC now double the size it was 10 years ago. It worries not about the growing police state being assembled under Department of Homeland Security or an out of control Department of Justice, led by radical Eric Holder, responsible for fast and furious and numerous scandals.
Then there’s the Benghazi debacle which left four Americans dead including Ambassador Chris Stevens. The tragedy, which was an undeniable result of then Secretary Hillary Clinton’s ineffective running of The State Department and the ensuing cover up from The White House down is much worse than Watergate however, no one has been held accountable nearly 8 months after.
America 2013 has a media that fails to report the news objectively and is so lockstep with this administration it practically recites talking points from The White House on the evening news to an audience who is either apathetic or incapable of questioning the veracity of their reporting. As the great Edward R. Murrow said “A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.”
A nation filled with immoral, apathetic people who care not for their fellow man, and believe in a sense of entitlement has no hope for survival. We Americans love to complain about government however we continue to re-elect the same statist, big government ideologues on both sides of the isle. We continue to allow government to dictate to us how we should live our lives because they think they know better.
God help save us from ourselves for our ignorance and hubris will lead to our downfall as it has with other great civilizations throughout history.
I used to wonder how on Earth could someone like Hitler come to power and commit the unspeakable evils that are a stain on mankind. I look to modern day America and see how people are concerned with trivial matters of inconsequence whilst their liberty is being taking away on a daily basis. I see how people have lost the ability to think in a critical manner and question why things are so. This is what worries me so for apathy is what leads to such evil.
A cautionary tale is The Boston bombing, no doubt a terrible tragedy. The government response in closing down a major metropolitan city and going door to door conducting searches at gunpoint was just as disturbing to any libertarian who understands the consequence of sacrificing freedom for security or the perception thereof.
People who believe in liberty and the conservative principles that made our nation great must take a stand against the progressives for time is short. Our constitution is constantly under attack by Obama and his lawless administration. Despite the wild run up of the stock market on Wall Street the economy is not doing well and our debt continues to grow at an unsustainable rate. The only reason why unemployment is down to 7.5% is because the job participation rate is at its lowest point in thirty years.
If we fail the America passed onto the next generation will be undeniably different than the one we inherited and we will have no one to blame but ourselves for allowing it to happen.
