Memorial Day Every Day
Countless people consciously sacrificed their lives so that you can go to the mall, have running water, take a peaceful walk, and end up in your air conditioning, watching T.V. This quality of life is exactly what they died for. We call it freedom.
Imagine if it were struck away. This is a popular thought these days, being that 2012 has been on the calendar for a long time as a great year of well… something.
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.
Do I know if there is a conspiracy to enslave the population? Do I know if they’ve dumbed us down and made us fat and dependent on purpose? Do I know if the collapse of the dollar is part of the plan? Do I know who they are? Do I believe the end of the world is near? The answer to all of these questions is a hearty no.
Honor our Fallen Heros and that for which they died by standing up for Liberty
What I do know is that this quality of life that we all have is still worth fighting and dying for. I know we must be vigilant to protect it. Government spending and control are the first things that we must tackle. If we allow our government to spend the way it has been, our quality of life is going to diminish without question. It already has. Second, we have to extinguish this weird un-American aquiescence to Socialism. Our biggest, albeit magnanimous goof was the moment our government ever gave a handout. When people give to others it’s called charity. When the government gives one man’s money to another, it’s called theft of one man’s money and theft of the other man’s dignity. It begs for abuse of the system. Hello? Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone home? Our government is gobbling up control and slowly stripping us of our rights. We have to stand up.
Confetti eggs, laughter, beer, clean clothes, Harry Potter, legos, insulin, yoga class, – it could all be gone. How? Inflation gets so out of hand due to the government over-spending, and everything gets so expensive, that people have worthless money and fall into the abyss of true poverty. People begin to steal, businesses fail, general mayhem breaks out, and goodbye sweet little lemonade stand, bouncy house, first-world, comfy life.
I’m usually an optimist, but I bet only a handful of people will actually find, read, or pass this article on. The vast majority of Americans have been lulled into thinking our government will take care of them and are sitting in a lazy boy waiting for their toe nails to dry or for the game to come on, and have no clue what-so-ever that their cushy little air-conditioned, super-market life is on the brink of collapse. They know they are paying more for gas, clothes, and food. But they don’t know that we are borrowing 4 billion dollars a day, plus interest, to fund our wars and our poverty. The end of this way of life is near, unless for some reason of which I am unaware, the American people are going to vote in a bunch of Libertarians who will really cut government spending by half and who will really end the wars. After all, Republicans and Democrats are two sides of the same old dirty coin. They are both squandering the freedom for which hundreds of thousands of men and women died. Our founding fathers and mothers were libertarian. They did not believe in the government. They knew it was a regrettable necessity.
