Being an American was always a glowing badge of honor. Something no one else in the world could duplicate. Not even come close to.
But it was never easy. It required thought, self reliance, independence, dreams, inspiration and the acceptance of personal responsibility.
Until recently, that was precisely the way Americans wanted it. Easy wasn’t in our lexicon. In fact, we didn’t trust it. We recognized it for the bear trap it was. And most of all, we preferred to do it ourselves. That’s the bedrock our pride was built on.
But sad to say, America doesn’t want to be America anymore. Now a majority of us prefer to:
*Operate under the deception that the government–that inept swarm of zombiecrats–can and should take care of us.
*Sit back and watch others pursue success with relentless determination and then once they achieve it, demonize them for it. And furthermore demand that they pay more than half they have earned to the protection racket called state and local government.
*Let the Russians dominate space and be content to hitchhike a ride whenever Putin can extort a military concession in exchange.
*Ignore the substantive issues that should be the intellectual grist for presidential campaigns and instead see who is offering the biggest bag of free condoms. Healthcare. Food. College tuition.
*Toss out the constitution on the basis that it is an aged document created by a clique of old men.
*Deny that there is anything exceptional about America, in fact demonize her and set our sites on that stellar model called Greece.
*Blame everything on racism. Even though there isn’t a single non-self imposed racial barrier in the nation.
*Lead the world in whining and hand wringing.
*Relinquish global leadership to the cesspool known as the U.N.
*Fill our public schools with anti-American propaganda masquerading as textbooks.
*Refuse to say the word “terrorism” and instead of fighting it, simply declare victory and go back to funding National Public Radio and embracing the mainstream hacks to make sure no one let’s the truth out.
The fact is, a majority of this once great nation has decided to sit back, demonize success, detest the red, white and blue and just reach out and push the easy button.
It is the most profound loss in history.Email This Post
