We won’t go qui­etly

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

The United States of Amer­ica, the most pow­er­ful na­tion on the face of planet earth. Prob­a­bly not for long.

A lot of sac­ri­fice and blood has been shed for many years to put this coun­try in a pos­i­tive light on the world stage. We took com­fort in know­ing that we have en­joyed the spoils of years of sac­ri­fice, even those who gave it all. How­ever bright it was, the light has gone dim.

The last time I checked I re­al­ized I’m a cit­i­zen of this great na­tion. If I don’t have any­thing else, what I do have is the right to speak up and speak out. We still live in a demo­cratic so­ci­ety, al­though it seems our rights are grad­u­ally be­ing taken away. Our destiny as a na­tion seems to be one pos­si­bly un­der com­mu­nist rule.

It is past time for all de­cent peo­ple to let this ad­min­is­tra­tion know we will not go qui­etly into the night. Dic­ta­tors con­trol oth­ers with fear of some­thing. We as a na­tion should have been more care­ful about who we en­trust with the nu­clear trig­ger. Maybe a lot of us don’t fully un­der­stand the im­pact of po­lit­i­cal geno­cide.

Be­fore I stop with my opin­ions and com­ments, for the two sen­a­tors from Arkansas that voted for the health-care plan to al­low folks that can’t af­ford to live un­der it to sim­ply die if you can’t af­ford to pay, those same peo­ple who voted for you will also re­mem­ber you. God help us all. JACKIE PAUL JOHN­SON
