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.

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.

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.

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… Read more »

Fine example of gimme gimme Obalma worship. Perhaps they need to sharpen up their chants- maybe liven up their dance under the full moon.

Sigh…

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.

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… Read more »
