America Down For The 8 Count

“It’s a huge struggle for us seeing how quickly the country is being dismantled, I have not yet encountered a fellow service member that signed up for this. Making the ultimate sacrifice, no problem. But this? I feel terrible saying this, but half the country does not deserve the freedom they did not earn.” This was said by Jon Garrick, a career military vet, believes America is in serious decline, with no solution in sight.

After reading that statement in an article it was a double edge sword for me. On the one hand it was very disheartening to hear that about our country. On the other hand it was a bit of a relief, because I knew I wasn’t the only one who felt that way.

There is no doubt that our country has fallen from its once great status. We came out of WW II the greatest country on the planet, patriotism was high, society was flying high, there was prosperity and a chicken in every pot, people were happy and Americans were on cloud nine. This lasted until 1965, that’s when the government started with all its social engineering crap and society started on its slow decline. Then when Obama took office, it was like an express elevator to the basement for our country.

I am 63 years old, and it’s like I went to sleep and woke up in a strange land where everything is the opposite of what America was. We now live in a society that dismisses God, but we glorify things like abortion, drug use, homosexuality, unwed motherhood, prostitution and same sex marriage.  A small but growing number of students and their families are demanding that schools make accommodations for transgender youths, who were born with the body parts of one gender but identify with the other. What kind of stupidity is this? You are either born a male or a female, if you think you are something else, you have a mental problem.

What about the normal kids, why should they be subjected to having someone of a different gender going to the bathroom with them? Why don’t we ask Obama if he would let a 15 year old boy in a dress go to the same bathroom or undress in the same locker room as his daughters? I think we all know the answer to that one.

Speaking of Obama, what kind of a president supports a cop killing hate group like black lives matter. All Obama is doing is throwing fuel on the fire and paving the way for more cop killings. Obama seems to sympathize more when a black thug dies than when a police officer dies. Let me give some advice to the black leaders, teach your kids not to be criminal’s, maybe that would save black lives.

We now live in a country where illegal aliens are protected by sanctuary cities, no matter what kind of crimes they commit. It seems like American citizens lives don’t matter much, because the poor illegal’s rights are more important. A pro-border enforcement activist says it’s outrageous that the Obama administration has started a new program that could allow illegal alien sex offenders to avoid deportation. The Obama administration is pursuing a political agenda “at the expense of the safety and security of the American people.”

I would never have thought in a million years that someone would get fired for praying, but low and behold, Bremerton School District instructed Coach Joe Kennedy to cease his tradition of praying on the 50-yard line after games, even though all the players joined him. I could have sworn we had freedom of Religion in this country, not freedom from Religion.

We have a school system now that gives children passing grades even though they didn’t pass. They don’t teach our children about patriotism like they did when I went to school. Instead they distort history so it fits in their left wing progressive agenda, which is to make America the bad and evil place in the world.

Truth is a thing of the past in our country because political correctness rules, we must watch what we say or else the P.C. Police will attack and demonize you, so much for the First Amendment.

We have a government that has grown so big that it is suffocating the American way of life. We now must watch what we say, how we act, what we do, and even what we think or else the big hand of the government will come down on you. Laws and regulation are strangling our way of life, we are truly inching toward a totalitarian system in this country.

America is down, and if we elect another Liberal-Progressive we will also be out. We need a strong leader, someone who is not afraid to speak up for what is right, someone who doesn’t care about Political Correctness no matter whose feelings he hurts. We need someone who is tough and is not afraid to show the rest of the world we are number one again. We need someone who has high moral standards, who believes in our Judeo-Christian roots and is not ashamed of it. But most of all we need someone who will put America and Americans first, unlike the president we have now.

There is much more that I can write about, so much more that I can write a book about it. Oh wait, I already did.

  1. For years I thought that a goose was the only one waking up to a new world each day……if that’s true, I AM A GOOSE, because on waking each day I have to ask “Where am I?” All that you say is true and not from a fantasy land, but from a land of failed stewardship. ……We CAN stop the destruction before it’s complete. We cannot allow ourselves to wallow in pity and become victims…

    I agree with your need LEADERSHIP. We all have our own ideas as to what makes a leader. No one is completely right, nor all wrong…..There is a middle ground that can satisfy ‘most’ of us. To get there we need to be at least a little flexible and remember that it isn’t necessary to even ‘like’ the candidate (unless you’re getting in bed with him/her) Is a sparkling personality really really necessary?

    If you list 5 absolute things you look for in a President, now honestly isn’t there a couple you could let go of for the survival of our Great Nation? ……I am one of the most opinionated people I know, and if I can loosen the strings, so can you all.

  2. Come on Chris you are better than this and Jon Garrick should have a better understanding of what he puts that uniform on for and why. America may seem in decline because you are told this every single day by a very few agenda driven pathetic humans. Why? Simply because they have the ability to do that…..it’s their microphone Chris. So now what do we do? Well it sure as hell is not to go and write the Articles of Surrender which Chris is sort of what you did. Take a look at yourself Chris, you bottomed out and what did you do, you changed your situation because you had to. Are we any different? Is America any different? No!

    What happened that Monday morning in America after the bombing at Pearl Harbor?
    We didn’t start seeing a lot of white flags did we, not every American out there is left a gullible fool to believe every line of bull shit that they are fed by our compliant media. Did you ever notice how little Georgie “Step on the populous” from ABCs Moaning in America asks a question and implicates at the same time. But no one calls the little prick out for it. He is just one of the many water boys out there doing “their” dirty work. The very well paid useful idiots employed in the narrative, Bye Bye Miss American Pie!

    What Senator Ted Cruz did was take a stand, he started a turn around in a subtle way and he would not let the commentator change the moment, something he was desperately trying to do. Then Christie jumped in and that fire from the left dwindled. Why, because they allowed someone to use their microphone. Our foreign enemies could not defeat us so the domestic ones are giving it a shot. But they will fail also because their agenda will never work. Shit tastes like shit no matter how much chocolate you cover it with. They know that too.

    We still have our Constitution, which will never change. We vote as a free people with liberty and justice for all. Know that Chris and believe in it, stand as one and change will come….God will Bless America. Jerry

    • Jerry, No one is talking about giving up, but the reality is our society has fallen in the past 50 years. Yes we still have a constitution, but what good is it if it is not followed, how many times has Obama pissed on it. What I put in the article, I hear from people all the time, they are angry and are fighting mad, which is why Trump is so strong in the polls. The people want a strong leader, someone who is not afraid to speak his mind.
