America does not want to be great anymore. In spite of the worst economy in my lifetime with many friends out of work, families being financially destroyed and evidence beyond dispute that Barack Obama's policies promoted it. In spite of ridiculous proof that he does not have what it takes to be President, or worse is destroying a free market nation in favor of a Socialist nation America rejected the ideals that made her the greatest and most prosperous nation on earth in favor of European style welfare state.
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.
The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.”
I have a wonderful family, a good job for now, and I need to focus on God's plan through the coming difficult times. I need to focus on re-tooling skills that will valuable in the future so I can provide for my family. Hopefully helping people who need help now and will certainly need it in the future will be a part of that but I sense a move inward rather than outward in the nation. That is profoundly sad. God will win, but sometimes it takes millenia because of the choices people make.
I had dreams to soon start my own business, buy my wife a better car next year, build wealth for my posterity and increase their standard of living so they could be blessed and bless others. America has spoken, people who do that are selfish and their wealth should be redistributed to whomever they wish and I am tired of seeing good people who only want to do well being called evil.
Ayn Rand was wrong about some things pertaining to God and religion but was certainly right about how progressivism works to stifle freedom and ingenuity. I can sense Galt's Gulch being built as we speak.
America has chosen to punish people who create wealth for themselves and for others. Has chosen to continue to put more barriers in their way. I don't want to support that and I am getting old enough my energy is limited. Others will have to take up the fight.
I also fight for my country by doing my part to protect them through military service. The coming massive cuts will probably make that impossible as well and may cut our resources in half or more. If you don't think military personnel can be laid off too, you must have voted for Obama. This will leave the nation I loved vulnerable to attack and we will be unable to protect her fully. We will try but you voted for it America and you will reap the consequences of it.
Final post to follow.
