That post was purely awesome.
I, though, am not so numb as to give up on what this nation has to offer. Maybe it’s because I lived in other countries for awhile an I know how much I love this one.
Maybe it’s because I am relatively maybe younger...since I’m 43.
Maybe it’s because I look at my great niece and I think, “I want her to know the America I know.”
And we live in Illinois... but in the rural area.
In 2010...we voted for a Republican Senator and Congressman. I feel Kirk is somewhat of a turncoat now... but let me tell you ... when I was a kid ...even THINKING about pulling the lever for a Republican was UNHEARD of.
So... you listen to the media and they tell you that you are powerless... but WHAT DID WE ALL DO A MERE 3 YEARS AGO????
We put conservatives in Congress.
So while your post is excellent. I don’t want to hear it.
Today is my 43rd birthday. I was born on income tax day.
You and yours... you will PULL yourselves up by your bootstraps.
You will do what I do and call your representatives. You will write and send letters to your representatives. You will write letters to the editor of your papers.
We will NOT give up.
And maybe you don’t go to other places on the internet... but there ARE conservative voices out there. The Kermit Gosnell story IS reaching folks and even hard core liberals are disgusted by it.
And if the bombs left you numb today... watch the tapes again. Look at the Americans who were running and who TURNED AROUND and ran to the bomb area, without ANY regard for safety to help their fellow Americans in a situation that had to be absolute carnage.
If THOSE people can turn around and get blood all over themselves to assist people who were blown to bits.
The LEAST you can do is call or write your legislator about an issue dear to you.
The left has tried to do much to make conservatives feel like they are wrong, evil and powerless.
We are not.
We are correct. We are just. We are powerful.
If the media and the politicians would just get out of the way, Americans would pull each other up and take care of each other the way we always do. That is the America I know and love.
How do we just totally bypass the media and politicians and tell them we’re not listening, they’ve lost us, and they need to just get out of our way and let us take care of each other as best we can?
Happy birthday, Julia. You already recognize the gift you have, and that’s even better than getting something new. I hope and pray we can all work together to preserve that gift for all of us and for those who follow after us. We will fight, even when we barely have the strength to lift our heads and when we feel numb. The Lord works His miracles every day, and this country is not beyond His reach.
