America, we have come a long way since 1776, America has built itself up to become the greatest nation on the planet. It is safe to say that America will always be called America, but will we always be the same great country? While watching TV the other day a story came on which said that people were happier and less stressful forty years ago, it also said that life is much tougher for kids today than it was forty years ago. The story also went on to say that one day grandparents will sit around and tell their grandchildren about an America that used to be, I think that time is already here.
I have to admit, I think that America was a better place to live forty years ago, culturally, morally, and ethically, America seemed like a better place back then. I look back and everything we used to hold dear as a country has faded away, what was once wrong is now right and what was once right is now wrong, truth and common sense are now gone and political correctness rules the day.
The majority of people in this country do not care about politics, they just want to live their lives and they depend on the politicians to take care of things in this country, big mistake. While the American dream slips away for most people, too many Americans seem to be in denial, they still think America is the greatest country in the world; you have to admit that there is a problem before you can fix it.
I have always said that Liberal views and policies are what is bringing this country down, Liberal views and policies always sound good in theory, but they never work in the real world. Take Socialism, sounds good in theory, but history has proven over and over that it always enslaves people and eventually collapses. Yet we have a President and his Party that are trying to push us into more of a Socialist country, his vision of spreading the wealth around and trying to make sure that Government is in charge of our lives is Obama’s vision of the future for America. Thanks to Obama’s policies, we are now ranked 10th in the world for economic freedom, where as forty years ago, we were number one.
We have a Constitution with the first amendment, which gives power to the press, who are supposed to be the watchdog of Government, yet it turns a blind eye on Obama’s corrupt administration and tries to spin everything to a positive light, or just keeps silent. Liberals believe in free speech, but only if it is their speech, all others are haters for not agreeing with them. For the first time in our history, our Government is forcing every American to purchase a product, there is a Mayor in New York City who wants to prevent us from buying the size sodas we want to drink, and this is America? Is it any wonder that New York was just classified as the least free state in the country, for personal freedom. This is only the beginning, little by little the freedoms of America are being taken away and Americans seem to accept anything that the Government does, they say they are doing it for our own good, God forbid we should decide for ourselves what is best for us.
It seems we now elect kings who dictate to us what they think is best, because we, the little people, do not have the brains to run our own lives. Our Founders set-up this country for the Government to be the slave of the people, it seems that has been turned around, we the people are now the slaves. It brings me back to what I said in the beginning, what was once right is now wrong, and what was once wrong is now right. If America is to get back to greatness, we have to admit that there is a problem and then fix it; otherwise, Obama and the Democratic Party will get what they are pushing for.
