Cold war. Racial tensions. Giant rifts between US citizens. Animosity. Fear. War. Lack of tolerance and understanding. World in chaos.
That was the 1960’s. But how much does it sound like our country today? It just makes the point that if we forget the past, we are doomed to repeat it.
Wake up, citizens of the United States! It is time we stop being divided and start being Americans first. It’s fine to have a party affiliation, but know what that party stands for. It is both major parties that are letting us down and leading us along the path to destruction.
We have to stand up and say that it has gone on too long. If we want to retain the freedoms our countrymen and women have fought and died for, then we need to start paying attention.
Stop listening to news pundits and individuals with an agenda to attain power. Listen to what our elected officials and candidates to elected office actually say, regardless of their party affiliation. The internet records everything. It doesn’t take long to get a feel for how that person believes.
And while I am at it, let me say that the founders never intended for Congressman or Senator to be a person’s only job for a lifetime. Let’s remember that just because they are incumbents does not mean that we have to re-elect them. They should have term limits and we have the power at the ballot box to make that happen.
It is time to be Americans. That is how we should think of ourselves. That is how we should vote. That is what we should be proud to call ourselves!
