What is happening to my country?
What is happening to my country? How did we get to this place? Does anybody know how bad things are? Why aren’t the folks demanding accountability and solutions? Why is there so much hate? Why are we so divided — black vs white, rich vs poor, religion vs religion, kids vs parents, people vs police, government agencies targeting people, politicians vs politicians, media vs the truth?
This is not what our founders envisioned. This is not the country that so many people defended in so many wars. These heroes fought for a country that was the shining light to the rest of the world.
Why is that light no longer on? I don’t know what my country is anymore. We have chaos in the streets, killing in every major city, poverty at an all-time high, more people on government assistance than ever before, 98 million people no longer looking for work and no one has any answers. Federal and state government are paralyzed by political partisanship and an unquenchable thirst for power.
I want my country back! I want to be able to feel the great pride I used to have for my country. Unfortunately, I am having a difficult time seeing the changes happening that we need to return us to our earlier greatness. Tragically, I’m beginning to feel it might be too late. I pray that I’m wrong. It will not happen until the silent majority speaks up and takes action to turn this around.
We can’t remain silent. We can’t become complacent. We need to demand action from every state and federal legislator. They are all responsible for the mess we find our country in. They have sat by and let our country slip into this abyss. They have lied, pontificated, ignored, and allowed us to fall while many of them have enriched themselves. They are the enablers while we helped because we continued to vote them back in office.
We are just as guilty for what is happening and it is time to change our behavior. We need to ask, “What are our candidates going to do to help bring back American exceptionalism?” If they can’t tell us, vote them out. Get rid of them before they do further harm.
It is time for this generation to take America back. If they don’t, we may never see the America that I remember and was so proud of for so many years. Then again, don’t listen to this old man and watch your country be systematically destroyed. The choice is yours.
