Shall we Ask our Children to Suffer our Selfishness?

Remember back to the nation’s crisis times? Each of us has our own memories but the best example most of us remember is WWII.

On December 7th, 1941, America was brought to her knees — weak standing military, depression economy, massive unemployment, an infrastructure in dire need of repair, manufacturing severely curtailed etc.

WWII started for us because of a cowardly, unwarranted attack on our own homeland [Hawaii and other Pacific islands] Much of our military might was destroyed in a few days and the enemy was sure we were almost down and out.

Instead, we arose as one to reverse all of our weaknesses and take on the mightiest military machines in the world at the time. Within a few short years, we became the arsenal of Democracy — not just for ourselves but for the entire free world — and won the war by creating an army the likes of which had never been seen and equipping that army with the weapons to fight around the world such that the sun never set on our fighting men and women.

We are in a new kind of world war under a government that refuses to unite against the real enemies because the leadership demands that Americans sacrifice everything for their multifaceted agenda which focuses on solving every economic issue imaginable regardless of merit. They know very well that in so doing, we are draining our precious resources by mortgaging them to foreign nations who are not allies but competitors of the worst kind because they are alien to our values and wish to reduce us to a second rate nation.

I cannot judge the motives of our President for his ways but I can well judge those ways for his ways are destroying America and even worse his ways are a legacy of famine and failure for our children and theirs as well! If our president were an enemy of America, he would be tried for treason but right now too many Americans seem to think he will create a new and better nation. It will not be the nation we had before he took office but a small majority seem to like the promises he has given them that everyone will be better off.

We need to confront the reality that we are no longer — like our grandparents — willing to make personal sacrifices in order to defeat the enemy. Far too many of us are being taught to become the “gimme” society with a credit card mentality that is willing to dump our selfish debt on our children. We will age and die demanding that our children “gimmie” more and more — leaving them a legacy of bankruptcy. Of course, we are — at the same time — teaching them that somehow it won’t happen. Of course it will!

So all you who desire to restore America to the greatness of the 20th century, decide now to convince Americans that there are only two issues: restore virtue and morality and pay back the debt burden with which we are cursing our own children!
