the goose is nearly done, or is it?
When I look at all the things that are happening here at home and around the world I cannot help but be sad. Karl Marx, Saul Alinsky, Stalin, Hitler, and all the evil dictators who have ever lived must be jumping for joy feeling vindicated in their belief that mankind is incapable of self governance.
Our founders gave us the best shot at self governance ever experienced and for over 200 years America has been that shining city on the hill. The lights of liberty are going dim as our government has regulated us to the point that we are not even free to make our personal choices in our own homes, our property rights severely limited our access to products (energy sources, affordable food, etc.) and services (medical, educational, etc.) needed to provide for the needs of our families being put farther and farther out of reach.
It makes me angry as I reach those golden years to now be faced with the reality that some bureaucrat in DC will decide my fate should I become ill, based on my lifestyle and my usefulness to society through the mandates of Obamacare. It makes me angry that this administration has gutted Medicare to the tune of $500Million and that the only funding source of Social Security, the payroll tax is being cut making its sustainability unsustainable. Although I wish that these programs had never been put in place, they were and most Americans rely heavily on them. Those of us just reaching eligibility will be up a creek and those people 55 and under will be even farther up a creek. Can you imagine being 55 years old having paid into these programs for 30 plus years and being told you won’t be getting that money back, that isn’t just falling through a crack, it’s like being sucked into a black hole. The rug is literally being pulled out from under us and it is deliberate.
I don’t worry for myself much but I do worry for our babies. What kind of life will they have? Makes me want to find a rock to crawl under it but I don’t think there will be a stone left unturned. Maybe I am wrong and I hope that I am. I have heard it said over many years at election times that the American people will always get it right. We didn’t in 2008, although the choices weren’t good on either side and 2012 is looking like a re-run. George Soros champion of Progressivism said the there isn’t much difference between Obama and Romney, meaning he and his minions will have control of either one. My trust in the political process and the reliability of elections is iffy at best…..or is it all a charade being played out on the Left and the Right. If it is, why and for what purpose? Makes me feel like a mouse in a maze being watched and laughed at as I try frantically to find the exit……..whether or not my worries are real the effects are still the same.
Do you identify with me or not and why? Tag! You’re It!
Grace and Mercy that America will return to its founding principle, Liberty!
