    For I am that youth that left and took nothing with me. But I instead didn’t go the way of the youth of my day who rejected what our parents were offering us to stay. I joined the Army and went to war. When I came back I was spit upon and called names, rejected. I couldn’t stang being rejected twice, once by my parents for wanting to be different, and then rejected by those who were driving a new society that I wasn’t sure I wanted to be part of. But after I went through all that rejection the left had for us who were coming back from Vietnam, I gave in to the pressure because I didn’t expect being treated that way by my own countrymen for going to war for this nation, and fighting against an enemy that I saw being what was backing all the rebellion the young were going through. I wanted to be part of that, and stepped into it with eyes wide open.

    But after awhile I realized that what I was seeing wasn’t what I was being told it was. It was fake, it was shallow, it was a lie. So I left the left because at least I did have family who did understand what I was going through, but weren’t my parents. That ‘s who I needed understanding from but at least it was family and they did care about what happened to me, and I realized that. I felt that in my heart, and knew that the difference between the liberals out on the street when they said they cared, understood, and knew my heart was a lie, and I could tell the difference between real love and fake love. The left is always trying to trick people into believeing something that is a lie. You have to be beside yourself in order to fall for what they are offering. Many are still beside themselves, and the left will have a hold on those people for some time to come. Many will not ever come back like I did. But it was an opportunity that I took advantage of, it could have gone on it’s way, but I didn’t want to loose that chance to have a second chance to preserve myself and my country.

    Mr. Macgregor is right when he says that it’s the ideas of the people who produce the politics and policies our country has as the basis of where do we go from here. Will America survive? Will we be drawn into the New World Order? Will we be able to expose this lie before it’s to late? If we do the left will have to try to destroy us in order that the rest of the world won’t get inspiration in our resistance to those who are promoting what the left is offering, and that is world community, and world unity. The only thing the world should be resistant to is those who would try to take our freedom to make our own choices away from us. That is what we should be trying to put an end to, and those who are running such a destructive machine. We need to be the wrench that shuts that machine down for good. But will it be big enough?

    Mr. Macgregor is correct in his expression about “idea’s” American’s have that manifest themselves in their politics and policies in how they end up governing themselves and the rest of the country. What has happend is we let our beliefs in how this nation should be internally, and how the world perceives us, and what decisions we were making, we allowed to be taken away from us by the liberals when they started making their big noise back in the 60’s. They challenged us in ways we never expected anyone would, and we lost the argument. They said if we believed that’s the way we saw how America should be, then we were wrong, and they were the one’s who were right (now) which I mean was then. They came from the universities as those who were the anti-war protesters, administration building occupiers, civil rights marchers, and all their siciphant supporters who were making all the noise we didn’t want to hear. We didn’t want to hear all of that because we thought that sort of noise happened somewhere else, but not here. We thought we were the ones setting the tone of the nation, and here they came along and took that belief away from us. We lost the supposed “right” to make the tone, and they showed us we didn’t have as much control over how people thought America should be as we thought.

    We really haven’t made any real attempt to take the lead back away from the left so that we can set the tone again. The tone being, what the country should stand for and that is what we said it was back then before the left come along in the 60’s was Christian morality and not drugs, sex, and rock-n-roll. To many youth were discontented with the strict life styles and adherance to obeying laws that the youth wanted to break out of. That’s why drugs became a god to them back then when we believed they would reject such nonsense, but we didn’t understand how much they wanted out from under all the constraints on something inside we didn’t see was there. The youth let it “all hang out” and that was that inner rebellion that was beyound what youth had displayed before. The youth were looking for something that our society, the one we had established for them, that they couldn’t see met a demand that was inside of them they couldn’t control. Along came the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and all the music that was “expanding their minds” that the older ones of us just couldn’t understand. That, plus drugs, plus new ideas of the left, and race issues, that our youth were willing to give a try because it had to be better and more rewarding than what we were offering. We just weren’t offering enough to satisfy their desire to break free of the old ways. And the left were just waiting for an opportunity like that to come along. Especially with our girls. The girls in our society were affected more than the boys, and we just didn’t see that coming at all. That’s where the “sex” part came from and the perverts on the left were the one’s who excelled in that department.

    America changed so much so more than any of us could have ever expected when our youth went off with the liberals and what they offered was so much more different than anything we were providing for them it angered us, and we made a serious mistake but no different than our parents made, or that their parents had made in their time. Our mistake of rejecting what our youth were doing to rebel that it drove them to the liberals and the liberals were waiting there with open arms, to be accepting like we should have been, but we were to proud to let go of some of the strictness we had been raised in and took the time to teach them not to let go of our heritage we got from our forefathers was just as important for them to take with themselves as they explored the world for themselves. And teach them with understanding that when they have had their fill of what the world offered, our nations heritage was worth coming back to. But we cut that off from them and they never came back, because there wasn’t anything to come back to but only strictness and rigid Christian conservatism. The left convinced them in their maddness that what we had wasn’t worth going home to, and our youth believed the left. That was the point where our youth were captured, in all their rage and anger, and the left knew just how to direct that anger and rage and it was towards the sitting government and the “establishment” .

    The attacks were relentless and intence with violence we, sitting in our living rooms, just couldn’t believe what we were seeing on TV. And TV was the instrument they learned how to use so well, and used it to convince millions of American’s that the “old ways” had run their course and it was time to change what America was, and the message it was sending out to the world that it was ready to be part of the world community and grow with the rest of the world in this New World Order that our youth believed so much in that they would use it later on to do to us what they believed we deserve for rejecting their new ideas and feelings about how things should be. We just weren’t ready for such new ideas, and feelings we had never used to look at the issues that the whole world was waking up to.

    Now, the youth we had to let loose have become the establishment, now. And look what they have let happen to their country, and their heritage, and what they believed were what our forefathers had forgotten to give to American’s in their founding documents. They want to throw out those documents and start over. The problems is it is not their beliefs that they want to use to construct these new documents, it is the sick, evil beliefs of the left that has filled the minds of our youth and don’t reflect what our youth actually believe. What do our youth actually believe America should be? They don’t know, they didn’t take anything with them from us when they left many years ago. All they have is what the left gave them to believe. The solution is to give to those who will accept it as the way America has to be in order for it to survive. As for our youth who have become the establishment? We will have to discard them in the trash heap of a ruined past. Their history will be blocked for future generations because their mistake of making anger and rebellion is to sick to include as something to learn from. What we’ll have to teach those who want to learn what America is supposed to be will be what we didn’t give to our youth before they left for the world. It’s our second chance to save the country.
