Dependent America

Where is the way out of this? God only knows how this country will renew itself to once again live the wisdom of the Founders. Friends smarter than I have been pointing out recently that without a mostly moral society, free markets and real freedom are doomed. Conservatives can have a massive 2012 election blow-out in our favor and still not be successful if our countrymen have lost their moral foundation. There are things that elections just don’t fix by themselves. America has gone to seed and the evidence is all around us. You see it on the TV and around the net every day.

Want to see what the moral rot in a society does to people? Want to see how quickly an entitlement gets locked in? Check out this video I took at Congressman Michael Burgess’s (R, TX-26) town hall held in the Colony 8-18-11:

Something just came to me. At sixty, I’m on the back end of life. In the best of circumstances, my bones may well be in the ground before the rot is cut out of America. If freedom prevails in America, the bones of millions of patriots will sing beneath the signifcant soil of a country once again exceptional. If not, then fear the reaper.

  1. Blow a few billion dollars and you can always find someone out there who caught some of the backdraft and thinks it was a great idea.

    But it is particularly sad to see someone being applauded for their confession that they are sucking the public tit. For most of our history, that was not a point of pride.

    • Well, most of the applause was from a group of about 25 socialists the union sent out. I know they were socialists because they gave me a flyer that said so.

      What you didn’t see in the clip was the tea party man that followed her and brought the house down with applause from the other 150 people attending. Saving that for another day.

  2. Juxtapose this with the ‘Happy days are here” routine on the famous u-tube video of the woman in Detroit I think it was when O was elected, saying “Now I won’t have to worry about my rent, gas,” et cetera.

  3. Born in 530 BC, Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus was a renowned Roman Senator. Approaching old age, he retired to a small farm, far from Rome where he and his family lived by the sweat of their brows. In 458 BC (at the age of 61), after suffering a brutal military defeat and facing the end of the Roman Empire, the Senate elected Cincinnatus “Dictator.” A good many Senators traveled to Cincinnatus’ farm to tell him the news. He accepted the decision of the Senate and took up the fasces. Appointing Lucius Tarquitius “Master of the Horse,” Cincinnatus himself assumed Command of the Foot and led the Roman Army to Victory. 16 days after accepting the position as “Dictator” of Rome, Cincinnatus resigned his post and returned to his farm.

    Once again, in 439, now aged 91 years, Cincinnatus was again asked to become “Dictator.” And again, within days, he accomplished the mission and resigned his post.

    Judging the trust and opinion of the citizens of Rome in regards to Cincinnatus is best displayed by events near the end of the old man’s life. One of Cincinnatus’ sons was accused of military incompetence and tried before the Senate. The charges were true and the only defense the boy’s attorney could offer was to ask the Senate, “Who will travel to deliver Cincinnatus the news?” No one in that august body could bring himself to volunteer for such a duty and the boy was acquitted.

    OK TG, you’re 60… Who gives a shit?

    • Well, I don’t really care that I’m 60, but my knees raise hell about it. šŸ™‚

      When did you have time to pour all this info into your brain? Must have been while you were waiting to jump out of freakin airplanes.

      Every time you post, I learn something. thanks.

  4. A sad state of affairs.

    TG – the women in my family can live to around 100 and be active to boot. I’d say I’ve got about another 40 some years to help get and keep things back on track. Until the next generation or two of patriots are ready to step into the breach and hold the line.

  5. I prognosticate on basis of what I know best, my own family. There is some hope for the future. My oldest son is a take no prisoners conservative. He is currently serving in the military. I would like to take credit for this but honestly a lot of it was just the way he was from the get go (birth). My oldest daughter thinks she is a liberal but she is (again her own convictions but she’s been around her parents for awhile of course) really anti abortion. She doesnt know it yet but I predict in time she will come over. There’s two to cancel out all the 18-22 year old mush brains out there.
