In a perfect world right is right, wrong is wrong and you let your conscience be your guild. If it feels wrong it probably is. In our present world wrong is right and there is no conscience. That’s what liberalism has given us.
I was talking with a friend recently who like me yearns for the good old days where children said “yes mama” and “no sir”. They learned the good feeling from a job well done. Competition was encouraged for it helped make a person strive to do better. To take what wasn’t yours, what you didn’t earn was shunned. Today children will disrespect an elder in a heart beat. A job done mediocre is not only acceptable but encouraged. Competition is discouraged for we don’t want anyone to feel bad because they didn’t try and to take a handout is expected. That’s what the cancer on our society called liberalism has done to us.
Today many in our society live on entitlements and believes the government owes them. JFK’s “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country” has turned into a fable and now its “give me more”.
I read recently in the American Thinker that a study was done on one state that to do better than all the services offered, a family would have to have an income higher than $65K a year. With that in mind is anyone surprised that families continue to live in government provided housing, collecting government checks while watching their 50 inch plasma TV’s, smoking cigarettes and drinking beer all paid for by the American tax payers. Those fancy radical rims on their ride you see when they drive by, you the tax payer paid for. Government assistance is now a way of life for many and there is no incentive to get off it, in fact people are encouraged to not only stay on it but to help others also get on the welfare train. That is what the liberalism cancer has given us.
This cancer that ails our nation can easily be cured if we had lawmakers who would actually represent “we the people”. Government assistance should be just that, to assist a person who fell on hard times, not used as a way of life. If a person can afford to have that plasma TV then they don’t need government assistance. If a family can afford a TV and an xbox for each child then they don’t need government assistance. If a family can afford for each member to have their own cell phone then they don’t need government assistance. If a person can afford to use tobacco or alcohol then they don’t need government assistance. If a person refuses a simple drug test then they don’t need government assistance.
We know what ails our nation and we know how things should be, yet how do we get there. The answer is actually simple yet hard at the same time. It takes a lot of effort on our part. We contact our elected officials and then we contact them some more. We make it where they start to know us on a first name basis and then we contact them some more. How hard is it to email them. How hard is it to call them toll free. How do they know what we the people wants if we don’t tell them.
We also show up at our children’s schools regularly and often. We attend the parent teachers meetings. We go to the school board meetings. We let the educators know that mediocre is not ok. That we will not accept them teaching our children liberalism and they will be replaced if they don’t do what is right.
And most importantly we talk to our friends. We talk with our coworkers. We talk to acquaintances. We get them involved with us in our fight to take back America from the liberals. This week alone I talked two people, online friends into joining the Tea Party. They couldn’t believe that it wasn’t the redneck cult the media made the Tea Party out to be but made up of people just like them who are sick and disgusted at what our nation has become.
There is a lot we need to be doing. There is a lot we should be doing and there is a lot we are not doing. What are yall waiting on?
