Things we did not learn in 1934...

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance,
and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

– Winston Churchill

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it…

I truly believe America as we know it is on a verge of non-existence. I wake up wondering what will happen today to disparage our freedoms, squelch our voices, and demolish any sense of us as a successful country to that of a Third World savaging existence.

They say gun sales are up and increasing daily. Why? Because we have seen as a nation, lost men in the process, that which happens when freedoms are stripped and people oppressed.

I have to ask:

What will it take for people to revolt against this administration?

When will we stand for everything our Founding Fathers began with a hope and dream?

When will we take into account every soldier’s blood, whether living, dying or dead, and say “What you sacrificed is worth us fighting for!”?

How far do we let a man go who has shown no reverence for being an American direct the path of America?

Why do I care? I know the answer to this.

I was raised in a diverse family where people came over in boats from situations that were life threatening for the dream of being an American. I was raised in a family where we have almost every single international continent represented including the original Americans – Native Americans. I was raised in a family where MOST of its men have served in the military and every war since WWI is represented. I was raised on God, Country and Family.

I questioned the last at an early age – about 10. I thought family should be first. It’s not how the Marine Corps. teaches it, though.

When you no longer have a family, you always have a country and God.
When you no longer have a family or a country, you will always have God.
