A need to stand up

The Covington News - - OPINION -

If you are read­ing this and are a part of what has been called the “Great­est Gen­er­a­tion,’’ or if you are read­ing this and are con­sid­ered part of the “baby boomer gen­er­a­tion,” you must think that the world has turned up­side-down.

We have a pres­i­dent who openly lies and who is snor­kel­ing in Hawaii while his sig­na­ture health plan is sys­tem­at­i­cally de­stroy­ing the best health care in the world.

In Cal­i­for­nia, the state Supreme Court has ruled that it is OK for an il­le­gal alien to be cer­ti­fied as a lawyer and then al­lowed to prac­tice law.

Christ has been taken out of Christ­mas by not only the fed­eral gov­ern­ment, but also by lo­cal mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties and school dis­tricts through­out the land, in part be­cause a mi­nor­ity of peo­ple have de­ter­mined that we might in­sult Mus­lims or some other re­li­gious group.

Com­mu­ni­ties ban the fly­ing of the Amer­i­can flag on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

A ma­jor news­pa­per, The New York Times, calls one of the worst traitors of all time, Richard Snow­den, a hero and asks us to treat him as such.

You can’t say what’s on your mind in pub­lic for fear of in­sult­ing some­one; th­ese thoughts and many more not men­tioned are just a few free­doms we have lost in the past 15 years. How do we fight this? One way is to get off your tushes and find can­di­dates for of­fice who sup­port what you be­lieve in. Once you find such can­di­dates, work for their elec­tion and vote for them.

You can also in­sist that elected of­fi­cials and courts fol­low the Con­sti­tu­tion and the will of the peo­ple who ap­pointed or elected them .

You can start by get­ting in­volved in shut­ting down groups that are in­sist­ing that we change ev­ery as­pect of our lives to ac­com­mo­date their needs.

It’s not too late to save our coun­try; it’s the be­gin­ning of a new year. With your help, the ma­jor­ity can be­gin to con­trol the coun­try again.

Wouldn’t that be a great legacy for the next gen­er­a­tion?
