Posted on 05/26/2010 2:22:18 PM PDT by se_ohio_young_conservative
I grew up playing baseball and football in a town of about 5000 people. I still remember standing on the pitchers mound with my mom is the stands watching me. I remember those summer days at the local swimming pool.
I miss that feeling. Not wanting to be child again. But I miss the feeling of knowing our country was going to be ok. I feel like a nightmare started on 9/11/01 and I need to wake back up.
I never liked to cry and show fear. But I have to admit that I am afraid of the future. What is happening to our country ? The national debt just hit 13 trillion. What is going to happen to our country ?
I worry about my daughters. What kind of country are they going to grow up in over the next 2 decades ?
I was watching Glenn Beck and I just had to turn it off and spike my mountain dew with some vodka.
I just can't watch anymore. This is a nightmare.
Go to Mexico and buy property so we can join you in a Free State.
...a lot depends on the upcoming election...
I'm sorry, but I don't think it'll be anything good for the people of our country.
I still can’t figure out how we ended up with a President like this...
My husband is glued to Glenn Beck right now and I wish he could bring himself to turn it off. I know Glenn is speaking the truth and is very sincere about what’s he’s doing but there is only so much that a human being can stand. You absolutely cannot allow yourself to be bombarded over and over with this and maintain your sanity AND your health. My husband’s health is not good and he complains about stress. We are retired, for goodness sake. He allows this stress to enter his life and for what? No person should allow this negativity to rule their life and expect to survive it.
The more that people find out (with OUR help), the more they’re gonna get P*ssed OFF...dems are running a little more scared NOW than they were just a few months ago.
I think they realize Americans are getting more angry by the minute, and with every passing day, some of us have less and less to lose, thanks to them and their CIC (child in chief).
The American people have an ability to overcome adversity, mainly due to our long term belief in God and hard work. I recomend you grow your faith, stand firm in God, and surround yourself with like minded people.
>>What kind of country are they going to grow up in over the next 2 decades ?<<
That depends — do you like Christmas or do you prefer Ramadan? I read that you imbibe so I must assume that you prefer the former.
In that case, join http://www.actforamerica.org/ and become an active member.
I just can’t watch anymore. This is a nightmare....
I’ve felt like that for quite a while.
When will it end? When 1 of 2 things happen.
1 A attack on our country that will probably be worse than 911 and will bring together people the way it probably happened during WWII in London during the bombing raids. I feel that people will then get back to basic conservative ideas and not this liberal feely thingy.
2. Economic crises so bad that so many people are ruined that they will revolt.
I admit my guilt that I also know what has to be done but am not there yet.
Because of people like my sister the stupid bish
Do they have any idea how serious a 13 trillion dollar debt is ?
Do they even know or care ?
Just numbers just figures
The world seemed nice because you blocked out things you refused to know.
I joined the Marines in 1980, during the Carter administration. I was with 2nd MEF serving my third military tour in 1990 and 91 when we deployed fuel air explosives against Saddam's forces, and I maintained at that time that demonstrating to the worlds tin pot dictators and wannabe tyrants just how much damage one could do with a large quantity of jet fuel was a really, really bad move on our part.
I began predicting it would be used against us at that time.
On September 11 of 2001, I called a lot of people with "I told you so"s. Not because I was terribly smart or prescient, but merely because I had been awake and attentive.
Answer: We now have the TEA Parties! :-)
Have faith God will not abandon us. There are still too many God-fearing people who are doing all they can to live righteously.
By the way...I also pray that if Obama is not a natural born citizen that he will be revealed and removed.
We just fought for a couple months straight against a mosque being built “out in the country” in the most Christian part of Wisconsin. I addressed the town board with my concerns as many others did. Local pastors brought in Walid Shoebat and Brigitte Gabriel in to speak to their congregations. Unfortunately, there were no truer words than “you can’t fight city hall”-in this case the Town of Wilson board. They are useful idiots. Most people spoke against the mosque, but some fools got up and “welcomed their Muslim brothers and sisters”. The Mosque opened last Friday. God (the REAL one) help us all.
Very interesting post.
Did you know that in China, they still don’t have property taxes, and the high end of taxation is like 15%?
And now we hear that a mosque is being built at ground zero, and if rumor is correct, the groundbreaking will be on 9/11? Literally, that is like a declaration of war to me.
“What is going to happen to our country ?”
With my best wishes and love to you, a lot of folks still don’t get it.
There are 300,000,000 Americans living in the U.S. who continue to sit on their fat hands and whine as the country is going down the drain.
No one has the resolve or courage to do anything about it but yammer, yammer, yammer.
End of store.
As a U.S. citizen, I dont live in the U.S., so basically its not my problem anymore. What am I going to do? Carry a pitchfork through customs?
You have to see the positive as well as the negatives that are going on. I think the fall of the West is very similar to what happened with the rise of Christianity as the ancient Roman Empire collapsed in slow motion.
I see a spiritual revival within America as those at the top run us headlong off of a bridge while the majority of the country is getting back to the basics. If you take the time to study, pray, and practice what has made this country you can become part of that revival. Be a man and do the right thing! Stop drinking, get a clear head, study, pray, and invest in the future.
I feel exactly like you, only my nightmare began during the early Clinton years. The thing is, the socialists have been destroying our free republic at least since FDR, or per Beck since Woodrow Wilson, some say back to the Civil War.
I have always been a freedom fanatic, but back around 1995 I realized that the socialists, at home and abroad, were destroying our Constitutiona rights at breakneck pace.
Now, I find it impossible to be genuinely happy. When I was ignorant about all this, I was a very happy person. I was happy with what I had and my modest life. Now, I just can’t find happiness.
If I felt like the country was moving toward more personal liberty and less government control and oppression, I would probably be a very happy person. My personal life is pretty good and is satisfying. I am content, but I can’t be happy knowing what lies ahead for future generations of Amerincas.
What grieves me the most is the feeling of inevitable tyranny. I know there are optimistic Conservatives fighting back and hoping to win. I am not one of those. I will fight back, but it is with pessimism, not optimism. I don’t want to be pessimistic about the inevitability of coming US central government tyranny. I have several reasons for being pessimistic.
1) Name one nation that has surrenndered its freedom to tyrants and got their rights back? I can’t name one.
2) Our form of government requires an informed, moral electorate — Judeo Christian in nature — to thrive. Voters are increasingly immoral and uninformed.
3) Children are being completely brainwashed by socialist school teachers.
4) The TV and print media completely controls the disemination of information to those who won’t seek it.
5) Half of Americans pay no taxes and want a free ride, those numbers growing constantly.
6) Huge numbers of immigrants have little or no appreciation for the constitutional rights we have lost, and want the socialist benefits of their former countries.
7) Socialists from outside the USA are pouring resources into insuring the dumbed-down masses embrace socialism and are buying their loyalty with entitlements.
I could probably go on a good long time more if I wanted to.
I think it impossibible I could ever be happy again knowing that my nation is doomed. I don’t want to believe that. I love being picked up by the optimists who want to think that the USA will do something no nation has done in 10,000 years of recorded history — surrender their personal liberty to government totalitarianism and later fought politically or otherwise and successfully restored their lost liberties.
I don’t see it happening and knowing that makes it impossible for me to be “happy” ever again. I experience joy. I can be content. I’m not happy. I will never be happy.
Brother I share your concern! I’m afraid that the country is turning it’s back on God and that will be very, very bad for us. Our Founders weren’t perfect but they recognized that they were being guided by Divine Providence when they established this country and American Exceptionalism was the result. Now our leaders scoff at the very idea of American Exceptionalism and to hear them speak I don’t believe they even know what it means.
i’m afraid for the country and I’m very afraid for my grandchildren who are going to have to cope with the mess that we’ve consigned to them. It’s very, very sad.
This nation has spit in God's face and spent the last 50 years working tirelessly to kick Him out of this nation and now He has accommodated us and has left.
What you are watching is what happens to a nation when they turn away from God:
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. (Psalm 9:17)
God means what He says. You can expect conditions in this country to get worse and there is not a politician alive who can save us.
It would take a serious revival to bring America back to the way it was. It would take the repeal of special rights for those who engage in behaviors that God has called abominations, it would take repeal of legalized abortion, it would take the removal of Barack Obama as president, it would take basically of a repeal of every anti-God law in this nation. None of that is going to happen in America; not with the rotten spiritual condition we are in.
The only thing that would save us is a nation-wide repenting of our rebellions and offenses against God, a nation-wide turning back to Him, and a time of national obedience to Him and a serious attempt to go back to basing our laws on His ordinances until He chooses to show us mercy.
Those are the only things we could do to turn everything around and I see none of that happening in the country we have today.
People just love their sin and rebellion and darkness too much.
Handwringing is the hallmark of liberalism. Yes this time is beyond comprehension for most of us. But we are the solution. It will be costly but we will win.
Wow a sniper named Devine!!
I have to watch Beck every other day. Although I really like Glen he and what he says scares the crap out of me. It scares me because its true. All you can do is prepare and enjoy your life now. God Bless You. oh and watch baseball!!!!
I can’t wait til the Reds play the Cardinals again. On Memorial Day !
I am with you SE Ohio. It is absolutely amazing watching what’s going on. Unfathomable. It’s like we are covered with attackers that we, as a nation, refuse to shake off and kill.
Why can’t we tell them to take the 911, NY mosque and cram it up their ass?? A “seed of peace”?? I don’t want peace with those people.
Why can’t we tell the tree huggers to go to Hell??
Why isn’t the NY Times in jail for sedition?? Seriously!
Why are we even talking about homos in the military??
Why are there not “stop spending” RIOTS in DC?
Why is there not MASSIVE civil disobedience until we see Idiot’s birth cert???
Throw BP out of the Gulf and SIEZE the well?
I don’t remember our US being a big clown car full of wussies.
I agree it is not good to subject oneself to constant negativity. I tried watching Beck a couple of weeks, and then gave up. For one thing, he repeats himself so often from one day to the next that I get tired of the redundancy. If you must watch, tune in once or twice a week at most.
The show I watch most on Fox News now is RedEye. The host is fairly conservative, and his guests range from congressmen to comedians to pundits. They take a comedic approach while making a point so that you can at least get a chuckle out of a bad situation. I have to DVR RedEye. It comes on @ 3:00 A.M. central.
I had recorded Beck's 2:00 A.M. show one night, and it spilled over a little into RedEye immediately afterward. Eventually, I decided to just record RedEye and skip Beck.
If you want to know what will happen if we don’t change, look at Great Britain who once wanted the sun to never set on their Empire. By ignoring their own country others grew strong while they grew weak.
The more you get involved with solving the problems of the world with force and dollars, the more likely it will be for those that disagree with us to bite us in the arse. We have enough problems to solve.
There is nothing new under the sun. There have always been worries about threats to the Republic, internal and external ... the Nazis (WWII), the Soviets (missile crisis, arms race, MAD), the terrorists, Great Depression, race riots, this recession. If you are a man of faith, just rest in the knowledge that everything will happen as it should.
I would suggest letting Glenn Beck go though. I like Beck. He seems nice, and he’s right most of the time. But, the man is a grade-A alarmist ... chicken little reincarnated. He’s the conservative equivalent of an end-of-the-world environmentalist — there is simply no situation Beck cannot take to a catastrophic conclusion. It is unproductive and gives the weak-stomached ulcers.
What will be will be.
“On September 11 of 2001, I called a lot of people with “I told you so”s. Not because I was terribly smart or prescient, but merely because I had been awake and attentive.” .............................................. When those buildings went up in 73, I said then, “They gotta be crazy, they built a bulls eye in Manhattan for any enemy that wants to hurt us.” 1982 my daughter informed me she was going to work at the WTC in her new job. My response to her, then, was; “Get the hell out of that building, its going to be a target.” She found another job shortly afterwards. As fate would have it, I was suppose to be down the street from there on Sept 11th, but decided to go a day earlier. Terrorists are either criminals, crusaders, or crazies and they will target anything that will get them on the front page or the 6 0’clock news..
I just can't watch anymore. This is a nightmare.You know what they say about nightmares. It seems like it lasts all night, but it's only a few seconds in reality. That being said, the End Times will no doubt be longer than a few seconds, and it's not clear how long they will actually be or when they will come with fervor, but hold on to your hat, and pray. The good guys win out.
>>>I was watching Glenn Beck...
Quit doing that.
I’m slowly but surely becoming more concerned about the world in general. What will happen when there is no currency? And if you have gold what will you buy with it. I believe we’re going to have to become totally self sufficient. We’ll grow our own gardens. Dig our own wells. And barter with our neighbors.
The only other solution is for all the countries to forgive the others’ debt and start all over. I don’t think that will happen.
What will happen to our country? Just more of what’s been happening for the last 40 decades. There’ve been many things that should have started a second revolution but didn’t. I’m happy I won’t be here long. But I do weep for those who are children today.
or Get out of the Way
Agreed. Beck is definitely Mr. Panic. I avoid him these days. Life has enough worries without him adding to them.
If you're retired - knowing what could happen might make you invest your money in a safer way - I assume you're not buying Muni's in states like California where default is possible.
Your husband might feel better knowing what could happen... I assume he knows Beck doesn't have a crystal ball - and that it's one more view to consider...
Because McCain wasn’t conservative enough.
During the 50’s and 60’s we played in the woods and swam in rice canals that had snakes swimming around in them. And I can’t remember ever a child being abducted. This country certainly has much more evil than it had “yesterday”.
“...a lot depends on the upcoming election...”
I’m afraid it might be too late.
Here is the debt clock: http://www.usdebtclock.org/
Today, not January 2011, it’s $110,197,585 per taxpayer.
The US work force is 140 million out of 309 million. We may be past the tipping point when the interest accumulates faster than it can be paid off.
The American people never had a communist/fascist dictator in the White House along with a rubber-stamp majority in the House and Senate before. This will take more than belief and hard work - it will eventually take the kind of action that we should most dread. The tree of liberty will either be pruned or we will suffer under the overbearing web of communist kudzu that the democrats are weaving for us.
