I am 70 years old and I don’t recognize the America I live in anymore.
I am a member of the silent majority (possibly minority). I am a Christian, white, middle class and working business man. I have been working since I was 17 years old and I have never taken welfare handouts from the government.
I am saddened by the fact that 50% or more of our fellow Americans have fallen into the trap of somehow depending on the government to take care of them.
I grew up in the mill village and I never knew but one family that was on welfare. We had a neighborhood policy back then that when the main provider for a family became sick or injured, the people in the neighborhood would do a pounding, which was a term for collecting food and money from neighbors for this family until the breadwinner was able to go back to work.
We now have people that accept this pounding system from the government as a way of life and have done so through several generations.
This is not an option for me.
I would pick up cans beside the road and eat grass before I would become a servant to a socialized government. We used to live in what was known as the Bible belt; but now we sit around in our churches with our heads hung down while our Bible and our Christian beliefs are being assaulted from every direction by this current administration.
This current administration wants to control every phase of our life. I personally do not want to become part of a socialized world governed system that tells me what to say in church, what to say in public and takes my money that I worked for to give to someone that has never worked.
I also stand firm on the Second Amendment. I will never give up my guns or my Bible. I can’t imagine living in a country like Greece where the government is broke because there is no more free money and where people throw rocks and bottles at government troops.
I believe that we only have one more chance to save our Country and we had better get it right in November when we go to the voting booths. I would suggest that you take your Bible into the voting booth with you this time and vote your conscience and common sense.
We can no longer vote like daddy and granddaddy voted. This is a scary time and our freedom is being snatched away from us by crazy laws and executive orders issued every day.
