If you love country, stand up and be counted

If you listen to the Obama administration, the biggest threat to national security is climate change. Forget cyber attacks, government insolvency, ISIS or any of the other Islamic terrorist, Iran, China, North Korea, the Soviets or whoever else may be on your mind. According to this administration, it is climate change, not debt, radicalism or tyranny, that will doom us.

In my opinion, we will not be able to survive liberal domestic policies long enough to see climate change. According to a projection by the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, the national debt will double again by 2035 to an astounding 40 trillion dollars. The debt will more than double the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). I do not know of anyone except far left liberals who think we can continue down this road without dire consequences. Right now at this moment, every citizen’s share of the national debt is about $57,000, and every taxpayers share is about $154,000 (6/24/15 data rounded to nearest $1,000). So, if you double those numbers you begin to see where we are headed. If you look at U.S. total debt (household, financial institutions, federal govt., etc.) it is an astounding 61 trillion dollars, $190,000 per citizen, and $753,000 per family.

Liberals only plan is more taxing, spending, regulating and taking money from the productive in society and giving to the unproductive all the while driving more and more companies overseas. Aside from that, they have no plan. The end result of liberalism will be third world status for everyone in the United States except, of course, the ruling royals. Is that what the majority of American want for the future, everyone living in sub-standard conditions? If so, the quickest way there is to continue the trend to socialism.

Sir Winston Churchill once said: “The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.”

Perhaps you are thinking by the negative tone of all this, I am throwing in the towel. But, you would be wrong. The struggle is just beginning and this is our country as much as it is, or more so, the liberals, progressives and atheists. Every armed service member and veteran in this country took an oath stating we would support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies both foreign and domestic. As far as I am concerned, it didn’t end when we were released from military service either. Clearly, the Constitution and Bill of Rights recognized a creator and the rights of the people to the free exercise of religion and the right to express themselves. So, we will not go down without resistance. It is time for rational, common sense people to step up and take our country back and set it on a course of moral and fiscal stability. What does a good football team do when it comes up short? They go back and practice the fundamentals. We need to return to the fundamentals that made this country great which includes God at the forefront. Then and only then can we return our country to the respect it once enjoyed in the world, not the laughing stock it has become.

If you love this country, you will stand up and be counted.
