Well, election day 2012 has come and gone and after much hard work by so many dedicated Patriots in the battle for the survival of America, we find ourselves in the final clutches of a socialistic agenda well on its way to its ultimate goal with the re-election of President Obama. Picking up only seven Senate seats was a worthy fight but left wanting. With the hopes of extending the current tax rates hanging over the heads of struggling Americans, convincing a President in the golf cart seat with nothing to lose to act on our behalf is too much to hope for.
All efforts made to restore order and work towards repairing the damage already inflicted on America throughout the last forty some odd years has been cast off like a dirty shirt. The Ruling Class of both parties have forgotten long ago, the mission of their office and we as a nation sat back and allowed them to shred the Constitution and the freedoms set therein. Land of the Free, Home of the Brave? This may very well have been the proverbial straw that broke the spirit of the American people and set us on a spiraling course that no one ever dreamed possible. Laden with massive Obamacare tax increases set to take place in January, working to live will be a thing of the past. Living to work will become the new norm just to stave off ones on extinction.
Francis Scott Key wrote the once great American National Anthem we were all so familiar with yet few knew the song consisted of four extraordinary verses. Verse four should have been our inspiration. Mr. Key wrote:
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
Of course, the above paragraphs are a very real hypothetical future for our Nation. It’s not a future I look forward to nor have any desire to be a part of. Too much blood paved the way to call this a free nation. Too many families sacrificed along the way. Too many young look to us as their only hope to also grow up in a free nation. We have three short months to make certain the fiction above does not become reality. The young Americans, our children and grandchildren are calling out to us. Each of our voices count and speak for the future generations to come. When my grandchildren ask what I did for America I wish to tell them I did my all.
