Plato once said, "The punishment which the wise suffer who refuse to take part in the government, is to live under the government of worse men." My concern for America, as I love her, is that we have allowed, through our complacency, a gang of leaders to rise up and take apart this nation, one freedom and liberty at a time.
A nation can be destroyed one lie at a time. Just keep repeating the lie and eventually the people will accept it as the truth. We have a government saying just what we want to hear. We as a nation have turned from the truth. We accept lies as the truth. We say we are wise but we are a nation of fools. Hitler was a master of saying just what the people wanted to hear. To the farmers, he pledged to cut taxes and to support laws to protect food prices. To the working class, he talked of redistribution of wealth and he attacked the high profits made by business owners. The same themes this present administration is using.
As our national debt grows to unimaginable numbers, we hear this administration promoting class warfare. We are sitting idly by refusing to vote, refusing to get educated on the great issues facing this nation, refusing to speak up and be heard, and refusing to pray to God for his guidance.
As a young man of 18, I took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. I find no "hope" in this present administration. I need a "change" to an administration that will defend the Constitution instead of spending its time searching for ways to get around what the Constitution says.
Educate yourself on the issues. Speak up about the issues. Pray over the issues. Vote responsibly.
