As the clock is ticking away, the upcoming Presidential race is sizing up to be a significant one for conservatives as the decisions made in the ballot box in Everytown, USA will mean the difference between a moderate or uber liberal President in our future. A country that we patriots can recognize as ours or one that has chosen the road toward socialism, the nanny state, with government intervening in every nook and cranny of our lives telling us what “is best for us” and “allowing” us to do this or that.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not against government studying, suggesting, and helping; it’s when it gets into the mandating business where I drop off the gung-ho ship. And probably most people would agree with that. After all this is America – Land of the FREE and home of the Brave. And that little word; free – is the key!
Webster defines free as: to relieve or rid of what restrains, confines, restricts, or embarrasses. And that (up to the more recent years) is what we Americans have enjoyed FREEDOM. Just the speaking of the word brings to mind, “free as a bird” the mental picture of one of our feathered friends blithely soaring through the sky and that is the USA! A country that has seen millions, upon millions of “teeming masses yearning to breath free” making the difficult, costly and sometimes disappointing trek to our shores reduced in 200 years to exactly what they were trying to escape from….. social tyranny!!
Perhaps it’s mans’ destiny to keep repeating the same mistakes!!
