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.
