How has this happened to us, our nation . Has the ability to reason and use logic completely been lost to us as a society, as a people? Has our need
to be sustained by the Government, to be on programs, food assistance, welfare, unemployment, disability, health coverage, school loans, and yes even
cell phone assistance blinded us, deafened us, and stripped us of our dignity?
How can we as a people watch our nation fall into the pit of debt to other nations and still vote for the continuation of this course we are on?
Have we not lost our very souls as a people, have we pawned our identity to have instant answers to our problems? We have settled for less and
burdened our children with immeasurable debt in order to keep our selves comfortable, fed, and clothed.
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their
country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this
consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only
that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods..."
Are we not to be men and women of honor and principle? Can we not strive to be a people of strength and courage to withstand this time, and do so
with integrity and character, not compromising our vision of a great nation that does not need to hold the hand of the Government to merely survive?
But instead stand with one another, opening our homes and lives to sustain one another through this storm?
This is the heart of our forefathers, we are our brothers and sisters keepers! We can see through this storm that is so dark and stand united on our
own, in our own strength and see this great nation once again be all that it was meant to be!
No political party can ever give us our dignity, only strip us of our identity. For our call to strength comes from those voices of the past that
stood in the gap, fought for our liberty, and insured our freedoms.
We have the promise in our beloved Constitution...the question is, do we lack the heart to see this all through? This nation will see the light of
day again if we don't fall asleep at our posts.
