A Conservative View

Praying that Donald Trump can save America in 2024!


They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and
in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are “Baby Boomers” getting ready
to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little
slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were.

We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown
old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the
hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely,
there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled
us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what
outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the
days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice
being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don’t know what an
icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A
few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived
those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But
there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing
us off. Our parents won World War II, and even some, fought in Korea, while
we fought in Viet Nam. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know
where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country
with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the
Socialist States of America! We fought for the “Land of the Free and the
Home of the Brave.” We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag.
We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America, and America the
Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our
cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read about
in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for
America .

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least
one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it,
and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and
nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend
America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath
we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love
but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent
Young people of this nation, you elected Obama and the Democratic Congress.
You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality was nothing but
“Hype and Lies.” You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face,
and have found you don’t like it after all. You make a lot of noise,
but most are all too interested in their careers or “Climbing the
Social Ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and
voting. Many of those who fell for the “Great Lie” in 2008 are now
having buyer’s remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn’t
have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the
‘Kool-Aid.’ Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it. No
jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you
voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of
Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

We ll, don’t worry youngsters, the Gray Haired Brigade is here, and in
2012 we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little
slower than you would like but we get where we’re going, and in 2012
we’re going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to
the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Harry
Reid, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein and a host of others.
It belongs to “We the People” and “We the People” plan to
reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a
better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren.
So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance,
Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank
God for the old geezers of the “Gray-Haired Brigade.”
