Liberty and Freedom are words bantered about today and I think few people understand them. We are like the frog in a pot not realizing how hot it is getting. I have often said if our founding fathers could have seen the way we have butchered and abused the Constitution they would have added some key phrases to clarify what they did "not" mean. I get so sick of government telling us what rights we can have.
Just one example, how many times have you seen or heard "having a drivers license is a privilege not a right" I say WRONG. Now I understand the need for rules and laws however this is a Republic of "by the people for the people" we elect people who we think are bright enough to represent us and pass laws for our better good and if I abide by those rules I have every RIGHT to drive and if our Representatives pass laws we don't want we need to work to get them out of office. Liberals will have you believe you have the right to free speech (although they will tell you what you can't say) and at the same time tell you government grants you the privilege to carry a gun if you fill out all the right forms, did they miss item number two in the Constitution ? Was I the only one in class that day ? Oh wait, my bad they don't teach that in school, don't get me started on that subject either.
We are told we have become a nation of wimps now I don't totally agree with this assumption I think we have allowed ourselves (or some of us have) to be told we have to be sensitivite to others to the point we won't stand up for what is right because it might hurt sombody's feelings, For example the far left fringe won't..........oh wait, scratch that thought they don't care what they say to us.
In WWII we went to war and the military ran the war for the most part and the troops stayed till the job was done, we don't do this today if we did wars wouldn't last 10 years instead you have a bunch of bed wetters in the media putting pressure on the politicians to fight fair, News Flash, If you are in a fair fight your tactic is bad. (actually good advice to remember)
Anyway the point of this post was to try in my own feeble way to point out how we have strayed of the path as a nation. I believe we are the best nation on God's green earth and it makes me sad to see what has been stripped away from us but we just might be able to reverse some damage.
