It’s the Soldier-It’s the Politician

It’s the Soldier, not the reporter, who gives us freedom of the press.

It’s the Soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It’s the Soldier, not the campus or community organizer, who has given us freedom to demonstrate.

It’s the Soldier, not the lawyer, who insures the right to a fair trial.

It’s the Soldier, not the politician, who gives us liberty.

It’s the Soldier, not the government, who dies in defense of the defenseless.

It’s the Soldier who salutes the flag, who serves the flag, whose coffin is draped in the flag, allowing the protester to burn the flag.

 

And, according to the Declaration of Independence, it is our Creator , not the government, who endows us with unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, all preserved and defended by the American soldier throughout our history.

 

 

CHANGE!

By Jim H., Oregon

 

What will it be? 

 

Politicians running for president are promising change to the American people.  We send them billions and billions of tax dollars and they send us the change.

 

Funny?  Not really. There is too much truth in it to be funny.

 

How about if they run on a promise of restoration rather than change: a restoration that would take us back in time to a place where things ran better, smoother and life was more enjoyable?

 

Change?  The politicians have brought change all right.

 

We used to have a strong dollar.

Politicians changed that.

 

Life used to be sacred.

Politicians changed that.

 

Marriage used to be sacred. 

Politicians are changing that.

 

We used to be respected around the  world.

Politicians changed that.

 

We used to have a strong manufacturing economy.

Politicians changed that.

 

We used to have lower tax structures.

Politicians changed that.

 

We used to enjoy more freedoms.

Politicians changed that.

 

We used to be a large exporter of American-made goods.

Politicians changed that.

 

We used to be an openly Christian nation.

Politicians changed that.

 

We used to teach patriotism in schools.

Politicians changed that.

 

We used to educate children in schools.

Politicians changed that.

 

We used to enjoy freedom of speech.

Politicians changed that.

 

We used to enforce LEGAL citizenship.

Politicians changed that.

 

We used to have affordable food & gas prices.

Politicians changed that, too.

 

And one could go on and on with this list.

 

When will Americans open their eyes, see have far we’ve fallen, and say, enough is enough? The trouble is American youth don’t know about how great America was just 50 years ago. They see the world as if it has always existed, as it is now. When will Americans act on the realization that the politicians are the problem?
