It’s Happening In Real Time. Pay Attention.

This can happen in America.

Is This Blog On?

It’s time to pay attention, liberals, because the downfall is happening in real time. No need to crack a book to learn history’s lessons of the end run of socialism. Just turn your eyes to Venezuela.

Think of not being able to buy soap, rice or toilet paper or order a cup of coffee, where even the rich are feeling poor. “In the serene private clubs of Caracas, there is no milk, and the hiss of the cappuccino machine has fallen silent. In the slums, the lights go out every few days, or the water stops running. In the grocery stores, both state-run shops and expensive delicatessens, customers barter information: I saw soap here, that store has rice today. The oil engineers have emigrated to Calgary, the soap opera stars fled to Mexico and Colombia. And in the beauty parlours of this nation obsessed with elaborate grooming, women both rich…

WILL YOU TAKE THE TIME TO VOTE?

Local elections matter. Our leaders in Washington, D.C., originate in our individual states, in our local counties.

Early voting begins today. The March 4, 2014 Texas Primary Election date is quickly approaching. Candidates are attending forums, campaign workers are working late hours trying to ensure their candidate’s message is received by as many voters as is possible, and all the while the general public goes about their daily business mostly unaware of the upcoming election. And dare I say, while not caring about the upcoming election.

We live in the United States of America where many wars have shed the blood of our loved ones and America’s monetary resources. These wars were fought for our freedom as well as for the freedom of people living in other countries. But, “We the People” of America ignore the privilege of voting because we are either too busy, think it doesn’t matter how we vote, or simply just do not care. Our apathy is contributing to the erosion of our liberties and freedoms.

As a Christian, I believe it is our duty, obligation if you will, to vote. Not to do so, I believe, is a sin. Our political leaders, it seems, have forgotten that America was founded on the common acceptance of what is known as the Judeo-Christian Ethic, which is the system of the moral and social values that originates in the Old and New Testaments in the Bible.

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands: one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.”

The Texas Pledge: “Honor the Texas Flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible.”

When I see “Old Glory” or hear the Star Spangled Banner played or sung, I get an overwhelming sense of pride. Our Flag is still standing high and proud. What does that mean to you, a voting citizen of the State of Texas?

I am asking you to please vote in this election. Your vote matters.

Musing

One cannot turn on the television or the radio without hearing comments about how cold the weather is in our country. Grant it, we are having a cold winter. So much for global warming.

Have you ever heard of the Battle of Fox Hill in North Korea? Perhaps you have heard of the “Frozen Chosin” which references the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea? This battle occurred in 1950.

A group of Marines, 246 men of Fox Company, Seventh Marine Regiment, would soon learn what it meant to fight in cold weather – as cold as 30 degrees below zero, while being outnumbered by forty to one. The cold was so intense their C-Rations froze. The cold was so intense their rifles and machine guns jammed with ice, bazookas would not fire, and the Marines were forced to load bullets into the chambers of their automatic weapons one at a time.

Blessings were discovered, however, because scores of men were saved from death because their bullet wounds froze over almost as quickly as they were opened. (The Last Stand of Fox Company, authors Bob Drury and Tom Clavin)

As I reflect on the state of our nation, I have to wonder how we will raise our children in the future. Will we teach them to give up when the situation appears to be overwhelming, or, will we teach them to persevere, even in the face of adversity. How will we instill in them that honesty, integrity, good character, and belief in God are the elements of a good leader? How are our children learning values?

Who is their hero – athletes, actors/actresses, gang leaders, drug dealers? Sex, drugs, and alcohol are made to look like an everyday occurrence that has no consequences. Television is ripe with shows that endorse immorality. But, we are condemned if we voice opposition.

Tonight President Obama will be delivering his State of the Union address. I honestly don’t know if I’ll be able to watch the entire speech because I can only take so much of his arrogance, self-absorption, narcissism, lies.

There, I’ve said it. Our president is not a truthful man. His words about using his pen and cellphone to run the United States of America is nothing short of a dictator.

Should not the President of the United States be expected to protect the freedoms of the Citizens of the United States of America? After all, he swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Honesty, integrity, good character?

Those men who died on the Frozen Chosin fought to help South Koreans to be free. Our men and women who have fought in past and current wars did and do so to help freedom’s cause. Today, our men and women serving in our military do so with a Commander-in-Chief who does not seem to care about their conditions, morale, or sacrifices. But I believe they persevere because they have integrity. These people should be a child’s hero.
