I have been reminded that I have neglected to tell my FR friends a bed time story for quite some time.
An Old Sergeant story for you.
I dont understand how this could have come upon us so swiftly, except maybe that the stage had been set years ago and it built upon itself until it exploded across this country in a wave of liberalism.
First it was Roe v Wade; Then no prayer in schools; Now its gay marriage and a general decline in self responsibility. We should have seen it coming and put a stop to it. But we got lazy. We thought this couldnt happen here. No one could take away our freedoms.
Well we were right. No one on this earth can take away the freedom of even one American----we are still too strong for anyone to seriously challenge us. But we forgot one thing; Other Americans. Our freedom is being eroded from within.
Greed, evil, non responsive politicians, lack of patriotism, cowardliness, laziness and lack of religious convictions has slowly stolen this country.
And I sit here and watch while good people whine and moan, There is nothing we can do! All is lost!
Well I am here to tell you all is NOT lost! I have seen the strength of America in the faces of our young men and woman in the military. I have seen the strength of America in the faces of our veterans, our wounded and our ill.
Our strength is intact but our leadership, from all parties, has lost their way.
Without looking can you tell me the 5 largest nations in the world? For you that are geographically challenged they are: Russia, Canada, U.S.A. China, and Brazil. Can you tell me where the U.S. ranks in GDP? The United States stands second to none and I am tired of people saying we have lost our standing in the world, that we are becoming a second rate Nation.
If you listen to the news media and our OWN leaders, you would think that we have already become a banana republic. Well we havent.
And I am very tired of people apologizing for my Country. I remember losing 3000 of our people on MY watch. People that I had taken an oath to protect. I took it personal and still do.
And you folks that took an Oath to defend the Constitution? Was there an expiration date on that somewhere that I missed? Come on. Time to be Born Again Americans!
We will always be the leader of the world unless we give it away. We have gone through bad times before and come back stronger. We will do so again. Where is your American drive and optimism? If something is wrongwe will fix it.
Take heart my fellow Americans. Stand up for what you think is right. That Star Spangled Banner still waves. God bless you all.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Book of John
Thank you my friend. Yes 2012.
worthwhile reminder BTTT
Semper Fi from an old Army guy!
Thank you my friend. And yes It still waves.
One thing we must remember is to get angry and not get depressed.
This country——YOU-—ALL of you give us hope. We will not give up and we will not hand down to our children a country that is less that our Fathers gave us.
We will be back
Because of folks like you all.
God love ya
And so do I
