I’ve been wanting to say this for a while now. But I’ve kept it to myself, because I truly believe that people would prefer for singers and entertainers to entertain rather than try to sway public opinion about politics or political issues, although I’ve yet to see a political issue that at it’s root wasn’t a people issue.
I’ve finally made up my mind to just say it anyway. I’m not trying to sway your opinion or attack your beliefs. this is simply how feel about my memories and observations.
I miss my country. The country I grew up in. My America.
My America believed in a freedom that was fought for and hard won by early colonists who didn’t want to be taxed by a monarchy with no representation. All the revisionist history writers do not change that truth.
In My America we stood up on Monday morning in school and pledged allegiance to our flag and our nation, ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, with LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL. AND WE BELIEVED IT!
My America was proud of it’s second amendment right to bear arms for protection against that ever happening again to us as a country. Along with that right came the ability to protect our homes and family from bad people with evil intent of either taking what we worked for away from us or, even worse, causing us or our family physical harm. I stand by that amendment for these reasons:
A gun is a tool.
It does not kill unless someone uses it to kill.
PEOPLE have been killing with whatever they could get their hands on since Cain clubbed Abel with a rock. God didn’t ban Rocks. He banned Cain!
While I’m on the subject let me say that MY America believed in God. My America respected God and his commandments and believed that the Holy Bible was God’s word. End of story. And My America had a government that was created on the principles of of God, and the rights that we the people were given by our creator God. My America had prayer in school. If it offended you or you didn’t believe in God then out of respect for PEOPLE you simply stood silently while they prayed.
My America believed in protecting children of all ages, including UNBORN children.
MY America would never make a political statement about disarming law abiding citizens to protect our children while condoning the slaughter of millions of unborn babies and partially BORN babies by abortion funded by taxpayer dollars. My America would have fought to protect those babies with their last dollar, their last bullet, and their last prayer.
In MY America, Daddy and Mama, and Father and Mother was the most important job in the world. People PARENTED. They Raised they’re children, fed them, clothed them, sent them to school, took them to church, taught them right from wrong, and didn’t let them run the streets unsupervised like a pack of wild animals, or leave them for someone else to watch or raise while Mom and Dad “did their thing”.
In MY America, people took responsibility for the lives they had brought into the world, even if MISTAKENLY brought into this world, because that was the right thing to do.
My America took pride in itself as a nation and as a people. It even took pride in being the place where people from all over the world could come to live the “dream’.
And Yes, MY America HAD a dream! And that dream did NOT involve The Federal Government feeding, clothing, and taking care of us until we died! My America’s dream was one of Working and building and Creating opportunity for self and family in order to have a prosperous life. Government was FOR the People and BY the people, NOT for the ELITE and BY the Elite.
In My America we pulled together, and helped our brothers and sisters and our neighbors.
In short, My America was blessed, and prospered, NOT because WE were great, but because we believed GOD was great, and we acted accordingly.
Did we have a bloody civil war over slavery? Yes! And out of the ashes of that war we became even more stronger and even more blessed as we accepted responsibility for our wrongs against other races, and recreated OUR America, over Years, to finally become all inclusive of all races. The people who perpetrated those heinous acts against other races, against the African Americans, against The Native Americans, against the Chinese Americans and others have LONG BEEN DEAD and are everything but forgotten.
AND the peoples of other races who were treated this way have LONG been dead and all but forgotten as well. My America does not owe a legitimate apology to anyone of any color for what our ancestors did 100-150 years ago. In MY America All races, all colors are FREE with the same opportunity as every other American.
TODAY, sadly, MY America is no longer recognizable!
Today America is Elitist,and Selfish and Self Centered with all eyes on the dollar rather than on God.
Today America believes that killing babies is OK, that killing murderers is NOT OK, that Parenting is someone ELSE’s responsibility, that Government is ABOVE the people, not FOR the people, that God is OFFENSIVE, because if there IS a God then we can’t do what WE WANT TO DO and act the way WE WANT TO ACT.
SO America would rather God just be left out of EVERYTHING.
Today America doesn’t believe nor want to hear the TRUTH, because the TRUTH would REALLY hurt and be offensive to a lot of people.
So Today America is politically correct, offending no one, while completely offending God.
History HAS and DOES repeat itself.
Today America is ignoring those lessons learned by our forefathers and their forefathers before them.
Today America completely ignores common sense and spiritual sense in favor of selfishness and irresponsibility.
There WILL be HELL to pay for that.
