We must face the truth

We say we want to be told the truth and say we stand for truth, but as in the lines of the movie A Few Good Men, I wonder if we could really handle the truth if we knew it in totality.
Americans, true Americans — those who love our country and respect our freedoms and willing to fight for them and Christians — need to wake up. We need to seek the truth and not be afraid of it when we find it. If we don’t and start effecting change, our grandchildren don’t have a chance.
Make America Great Again, has somehow been turned into a racist idea by people who see everything as racist and are actually perpetrating it. Some want to say America is still great and I would agree, but America is not the country it once was in terms of values and ideals. Saying we want to make America great again, means we want to go back to that way of life where we weren’t offended by everything and everyone and we didn’t riot and point fingers or celebrate killing babies. It means we want a world where everyone can live in peace and have their individual rights without them being paraded across social media or on other media outlets in an “in your face” method.
We want an America where politicians don’t promote hate speech and they love as well as support whoever is in the office of the presidency because it is the respectful thing to do.
Our republic cannot permanently exist unless we change the mindset of voters who have discovered they can vote themselves handouts from the public treasury. Because of that fact, some now vote for the candidates promising the most benefits without costing voters. Democracies always fall over loose fiscal policies. Douglas MacArthur once said he was concerned for the security of our Nation because of the “insidious forces working from within”.
At that time, the communists had gained massive control over the media in our country. His statement was pretty much passed over and ignored just in case anyone would take heed of it and begin looking at their own government. While we were fighting fascist regimes threatening to take over the world, Marxist socialists were not only infiltrating our government, but were implanting themselves. Joseph McCarthy tried pointing this out but was labeled a lunatic. Years later, though it was discovered he was correct and FDR had communists in his administration. Of course, it was too late by then and thanks to the media controlled by them, they shunned the title of Marxist/Socialist Communists and became known as Liberals. Don’t misunderstand here: Marxists are not the same as liberals but Marxists knew liberals could be guided into any direction desired just by promising free stuff.
Liberals seem to have mental conditions which keeps them from embracing any true logic. Don’t believe me, just strike up a conversation with one and you’ll be convinced. Just look at Pelosi and a few others.
Liberals were also guided down the path of legalizing abortion which has prevented the birth of close to 60 million potential taxpayers. To top it off, taxpayers are paying for it. Not what I want my tax money to fund.
Liberals also birthed entitlement programs. Social Security is not an entitlement but it was forced upon us and then liberals got access to that money deposited into SS and used it for their own purposes. This was a way to open the door to destroy our country through programs like welfare, food stamps and many other entitlement programs which were designed to eventually totally drain the U. S. Treasury.
If you want to get down to it, the only people in our country owed anything are our Veterans.
Entitlement programs were created for no other reason than to make people dependent upon them. There are so many of these programs that with the present tax structure there is no way to fund them all so money has to be borrowed. No one should be getting money from the people who work for it day in and day out.
Relying on these programs strips people of their pride and takes away the desire to make something of themselves or be productive citizens. Why should you when you can make money by just sitting at home. Such programs in effect, make slaves of the people who have come to depend and demand them. Because they want to continue to receive this money from the sweat of others, they continue to vote for those who promise to keep handing it out.
Such programs make you totally dependent on the government. The Democratic party uses these programs for political gain by reminding people they could lose them if they don’t vote for them and say people are “entitled” to them. Thus has evolved the “entitlement mentality”.
We the people have actually caved in to the “whiners” of today, if for no other reason but to get them to shut up. But America is waking up and it’s past time. If we want change, we have to start working toward that change ourselves. If you haven’t written your Congressmen, do so. Don’t be swayed because the response is just a standard letter. If we bombard them, eventually they will take notice, even if only for a second. It’s time to quit being the silent majority and face the truth.©2019
