America’s Future Is In Our Hands.
During one of the many lightening storms I shut off my computer which I now do to for protection from the surges, I wondered what the Human Capital (Common Cores name for our children) will do if there is a prolonged storm, or brown out or electricity prices necessarily skyrocket?
How will human capital think if they can not press an APP? Our human capital can not function without electricity and an APP to guide them. They can not communicate without a devise. Look what we have done to our children. We are providing a future for them that will be totally dependent on machines. Communication skills and relationships will be a thing of the past. Teachers, Parents, Family, America and God will become obsolete as we allow machine to take their place. This will be our doing, on our watch. The damage done to this country by progressive, still angry baby boomers of the 60s, is insurmountable unless.
We stop all political correctness and tell the truth.
Americans are trained in school to never talk about politics and religion and become part of the silent majority. We were trained in school that people over 30 were old school, dumb, didn’t get it in the new modern world of fast things and instant gratification. We were taught:
• to envy our neighbors because we had to have the same or better
• never make waves or someone’s feeling will get hurt
• turn the other cheek no matter what the offence
• accept mediocrity as we must all be common and the same.
• always blame someone else; never take responsibility for anything.
• actions have no consequences
• we must be gratified instantly, patience is not a virtue.
• retire at 62 live the good life and don’t pay attention to hard unpleasant stuff.
• don’t talk about politics and religion; your elected official will do everything for you.
We learned well, too well. We abrogated raising our family, our responsibility to the school. We watched and joined as angry American hating, God hating flower children of the 60s infiltrated our schools by promoting peace and love. Our problem, we never asked peace and love of what? Now we are finding that peace means acceptance of every perversion imaginable and love is love of government.
And so we have come full circle. We have become the silent majority, afraid to make waves, because of our job, healthcare, pension. We paid attention to our jobs so we can retire early and live the good life. Is Bernake’s plan to print money propping up the stock market a ruse to silence seniors? If not, it certainly has become exactly that. The 5% of seniors paying Americans bills now feel guilty about our fortune so we are happy to pay more of our fair share to help those less fortunate. Stocks doing good gives us enough money to keep us insulated so our attention is diverted to play things like: vacation, golf, shop, tennis, cars, beach houses etc. After all we worked hard we deserve it. We will just give more money to the government thinking they will fix everything. It is not our responsibility; we pay our share.
So what have we to be proud of? Americans created some of the most innovative, creative successes for humankind. Instead of treasuring our success and teaching other how to achieve their success, we gave it all away as we left the responsibility of our children (human capital) to a government that we always knew was corrupt. We think: After all I pay my taxes, I donate to charities. What else can I do?
Are we now part of the low information voter pool who knows something is wrong but will continue to elect the same people who lie and cheat because it is easier than investigating or participating? We think we did our job, we voted. Is that our only job, just to vote?
Will you look in the mirror and say, I am responsible for letting American become just another great country that allowed truth, freedom, liberty and private property slip away by letting common sense run amok? Or will I be the one who will stand up, be heard, use my voice to scream, America can not die.
• They came for my children and I did nothing because I did not have young children.
• They came for my privacy and I did nothing because, it doesn’t affect me, I did nothing wrong.
• They came for my money and I did nothing and gave because I have plenty.
• They came for my God, morality and values and I did nothing because I didn’t want to offend anyone. I must be PC.
• They came for America and I did nothing because truth is no longer important.
• They came for me and I got on the re-education bus after all I must fit in this new world order.
Or must I fit? American individuals never wanted to fit into any box. That is the formula that makes America great and different. The strength of America is Americans, who realized that the American spirit means being different, outspoken, and unafraid. America is suffering from an ideological war that is no different than the same war continued for decades. Can we make a difference? We sure can but only by doing things differently.
Once again Americans are being asked to step up, step out, connect with neighbors and tell the truth. Can you give up a golf game to go to a community meeting, email, make calls or tutor?
Can you remember the things we have that makes America great did not come to us without hard work and devotion? We did not get liberty and freedom by delegating our responsibility to others. We have liberty and freedom because Americans recognize freedom is not free. What part of history will carry your name? Will you step up for serfdom by doing nothing or will you step up for freedom and participate? One again America’s future is in our hands. Victory is our only option.
