I'm saddened every time I'm reminded we, as a country, no longer have a unified vision about what is necessary to protect our freedom and the things that have made this country great. Passion has been supplanted by complacency within the public at large. I'm not old - but I'm old enough to remember when it was OK to profess love for God, country, freedom and the capitalism that has made this country what it is. Not too long ago it was important to have the opportunity for extraordinary success and the chance to pursue it. Now it seems we are hell bent on collective mediocrity. This is the price of political correctness and a general teaching that anything goes and no behavior should be judged. We are at a fork in the road. If we as a people don't decide quickly where we stand on issues like: support for illegal aliens, free enterprise, moral principals, limits on deficit spending and national defense we will be irrevocably undoing all that was accomplished by those, Like Eisenhower, who have gone before us.
Very well said sir. Some think it's already too late and the USA is done for. I hope not. I'm REALLY scared for my pre-teen kids though and what kind of life they will have at the age I am now...
Seems the only thing that is at stake today is completing some hidden agenda that will force compliance of the masses and the ruin of this once glorious nation.
Political correctness? No just a hidden agenda.
Support for illegal aliens? No just a hidden agenda.
Limits on deficit spending and national defense? No just a hidden agenda.
Not OK to profess love for God, your country, your freedom? No just a hidden agenda.
They think if they can tear it down and build it back up the way they want it, utopia will be obtained. Yeah right, back to the middle ages when only the rich were few and the rest of the population only had dirt to eat.
If Eisenhower was alive and active in politics today, can you imagine how he'd be maligned in the current political arenas?
