A friend forwarded an email to me today that got my ire up – in a surprising way. Normally, I delete idiotic tripe that I receive, but since I respected my friend, I sent a thoughtful and impassioned response. Since she was inspired by my message, I thought it would make a good posting. To wit:
What a whiner! I can’t believe that a marine wrote that pile of poo!
Once your start blaming other people for your problems, you give up the ability to fix them. I refuse to give up on my country. I refuse to place my trust in political parties and their empty leadership.
This country will only be saved by a grass-roots movement of entrepreneurs with integrity and discipline – like our founding fathers. They had time to consider the important issues of their day because they had become successful enough to be able to spend their time thinking about these things – not chasing their daily bread.
I will be one of those leaders! I will not whine about some goofball messing things up for me. I will take careful and measured action to solve the problems.
Thanks for getting me inspired today.
The original whine:
The following comments, written by a USMC Vet, are thought provoking for the former silent majority.
The American dream is dead at all levels. We have ceased to be a self-reliant population where hard work brought upward mobility and allowed parents to give their children a better living circumstance than they had. Now our children will not live as well as their parents did. Venal politicians, connivers, takers and non-performers have ruined America.
After reciting those thoughts at today¿s breakfast, I pointed out that no-one in America is happy anymore. Perversion is glorified and religious beliefs are mocked. Liberals have sucked the joy from American life. Listen to today¿s music, watch current movies, read newspaper Op-Eds or Letters to the Editor to appreciate how quickly our society has self-destructed.
The American Dream ended (on November 6th) in Ohio. The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind.
A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers, Union Members, Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America.
The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch…the Pit Bull is in the back yard.
The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod, along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order.
Our side ran two candidates who couldn’t even win their own home states, and the circus fattster Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a glowing “post Sandy” tribute that elevated the “Commander-in-Chief” to Mother Teresa status.
People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.
You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates–not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.
Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to “white guilt” and political correctness…..
