Our pups spend the day just looking for a cool spot. They find one in my flower beds, which needless to say aren’t looking very pretty but at least they are serving a good purpose, LOL!
As miserable as they are, I find myself envious of the dogs. Their lives are pretty simple and straight forward. Maybe that’s why so many people seem to gladly accept the Socialist track our country is on. Just dealing with the challenges of everyday life is difficult at times. The added pressure of worrying about what the government is going to ‘do for us’ gets to be overwhelming. Of course ‘overwhelming the system’ is a classic tactic of Socialism and all the other ‘isms’ that purport to ‘help’ people. Government makes it impossible to deal with the over-regulation, tax liability, decrease in individual freedom and mandated actions on the part of the people. Some just give up and give in, others eventually turn to anarchy. When that happens governments have a good excuse to use the ‘iron fist’ approach to control those who are willing to rebel against the loss of their individual, God-given rights.
It is an age-old war, ever fought throughout the ages. America’s greatness came by unleashing the entrepreneurial spirit which led to a massive and strong middle class which drove the economy. Able bodied people were willing to work hard, seize opportunity and reach for the stars. In our earlier days being on public assistance wasn’t seen as a badge of honor, as it is today. Today we have TV commercials encouraging people to apply for food stamps! I think our Founders are probably spinning in their graves….
What do I know, I am just a 60+-year-old woman. I am not rich and yet not poor. My husband and I have spent the last 46 years raising our family and providing for our needs. We never expected that the day would come when every aspect of our personal lives would be over-shadowed by government, down to what we can eat! Our lives have been pretty simple and straight forward up until now. We worked, paid the bills, found time to ‘play’ once in a while and looked forward to growing old together. Now, we find out that ‘growing old’ puts us in danger of being denied medical care based on what government decides we deserve. Not a pleasant thought….
I don’t have an answer to all the world’s problems, well I do but no one wants to hear it. God is the answer and He will have the final say. I just want to live peacefully, enjoy my own property and spend what I have on what is important to me and the causes that I support.
I feel betrayed by my government. My basic God-given human rights diminished and my hope for future generations of Americans made doubtful. We once made our voices heard at the ballot box, but, today I am no longer sure that is the case. Tell me what you thing?
